Maestro: Music of Death – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Maestro: Music of Death walkthrough on Gamezebo. Maestro: Music of Death is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by ERS Game Studios. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Maestro: Music of Death.

General Tips

  • You may choose from one of two possible gameplay modes at the start of both the main and (if applicable) bonus adventure: Regular Mode and Expert Mode. Expert Mode features skip and hint buttons that take longer to recharge, as well as active zones not being indicated.
  • Hints are available throughout the game for both adventure and hidden object gameplay by clicking on the violin in the bottom right corner of the screen. Hints are unlimited, but will take a while to recharge before they can be used again.
  • Throughout the game, you will also have the aid of a Journal: this can be accessed from the bottom left corner of the screen. Use the Journal to follow the story as well as take note of valuable clues and hints.
  • Puzzles may be skipped, however you will have to wait an allotted period of time before the option activates.
  • Clicking excessively will result in your cursor being temporarily disabled.
  • Inventory items are shown at the bottom of the screen and are noted with CAPS throughout the guide below. You may use the arrows on either side of the box to toggle for more items if you’re holding more than can be displayed at any given time.
  • Hidden object locations are largely randomized: as such, Key Items only are circled in the guide below.
  • Hidden object locations often have items listed in red: this means they are obstructed, or you must do something specific to acquire them. Items of this nature have been boxed in the screenshots in the guide below.
  • The guide below is written for both the normal edition of the game and the Collector’s Edition. For the Collector’s Edition bonus content and adventure guide, please refer to the chapter entitled “Epilogue: Bonus Adventure”.
