Welcome to the Twisted: A Haunted Carol walkthrough on Gamezebo. Twisted: A Haunted Carol is an interactive, Hidden Object game, played on PC, created by Gogii Games and available at Gogii Games and BigFish Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Twisted: A Haunted Carol.

General Information

  • Enter your profile name and click OK. After the opening cutscene, you can return to the Main Menu by clicking on the Journal (lower left) or pressing the Esc key on your keyboard. Click on Quit to return to the Main Menu.
  • Click on Options to adjust the Sound and Music volumes, turn Full Screen and Mute All Sound on and off and click on Credits to view information about the developers.
  • Click on Change Player to add, edit or delete a profile.
  • During dialogs, click the Continue button (if applicable), or anywhere in the scene, to advance the dialog. During cutscenes, click the Skip button (upper right) if you want to skip them. Note that you’ll miss the story elements if you do so.
  • Once you begin the game, you’ll be given the opportunity to view the Tutorial. Click the Yes button if you need this information.
  • Spectacles indicate an area or item you can examine for information, a Magnifying Glass indicates an item or area you can zoom into, a Hand indicates items you can pick up and the Arrows indicate areas navigation directions.
  • The Hint button is located at the lower right and available during gameplay and object searches. During object searches, a random item will be highlighted. During gameplay, either a random area of interest will be highlighted or you’ll be told that there’s nothing more to investigate.

Gameplay and Guide Tips

  • This guide assumes you’ve read the General Information, used the in-game Tutorial and/or Help features or otherwise familiarized yourself with gameplay.
  • Item search lists are random and will be different for each player. Only Inventory Items will be indicated.
  • This guide will indicate all Inventory Items in green, areas of interest in yellow and other colors as needed.
  • When you add a new player, the game will automatically begin for that profile. You’ll need to watch the opening movie (or click the Skip button) and then return to the Main Menu to make any changes. Changing to an established profile will return you to the Main Menu where you can click Continue to resume your game.
  • Initially, the Hint button will recharge very quickly (about 20 seconds the first time you use it). If you continue to use it, 5 seconds will be added to the length of the recharge time for a maximum of 45 seconds (this is based on my test of 10 consecutive uses, one after the other). If you don’t use the Hint button very often, the recharge time will be shorter. During minigames, the Skip button will charge in 45 seconds.
  • Some inventory items can be combined. Click on one then the other to create a new item.
  • Many items or areas can be clicked on for information. However, they aren’t necessary to trigger game progressions and this guide will only mention them if or when they become available to use.
  • Dialogs and game progression information won’t be mentioned in this guide. It is assumed you’re reading them yourself.
