General Tips

This hidden object game requires visiting several locations and using inventory items to advance play.

  • Play is mostly linear although there are a few options in some scenes.
  • CAPITALIZED inventory items are meant to make it easier to find where this guide may differ from your own play.
  • There are no penalties for multiple clicks in a scene.
  • Always move the cursor around a scene. Watch the cursor to see if it changes into a hand or magnifying glass.

Main Menu:

  • Play – Begin or resume a game. The first time you play you must select a difficulty level:

Walkthrough

A short clip explains the background and introduces the story line for play.

If you are not familiar with hidden object games, click “Yes” when asked if you would like a tutorial. This will show you how to interact with objects and characters.

The objects for hidden object scenes are randomly generated. That is why only inventory items are shown. They are highlighted in white with a blue border. Objects written in green lettering indicate you must interact with that item in scene. Move your cursor around until the cursor turns into a hand to figure out how to obtain the object.

With the exception of a hidden object area, most inventory items are not collected from a scene until they are needed.

Assumptions:

  • You know to click through the conversations with characters.
  • After you have gone back and forth between locations more than once, you know how many times to go up or down.
  • Just as in the movies, you will always enter a darkened door, open window or secret room.

Larger cutouts match skulls, smaller match dots. Note that the four corner pieces are exactly opposite from where they need to be. Use the empty yellow square as a holding area while sliding pieces. The best way to solve this puzzle is to pick one of the corner pieces and work it into place. Next place the other corner piece in the same column. Solve one column at a time. Place the tiles with only a skull cutout last. See the solution in the inset.

Dark Ritual

  • Zoom in on the door lock. Place the ANCIENT TILES on the lock to activate a puzzle. Each tile contains an eye with either a different iris or frame. Place the tiles so each row and column contains a unique set of eyes/frames. The dark brown tiles are set. Use these set tiles to guide you.
  • Here is how to start. Begin with square 1 in inset (A). The column has two set squares and the row has one set square. The column has a full eye in a cross and a blue iris with a black pupil. The row has the same blue iris with a black pupil but with a diamond background. The only background pattern remaining that will fit in this square is a star. There are three star tiles available, but only one of whose eye pattern is not yet represented: a solid blue iris. By process of elimination, the only tile that can fit in square 2 is a diamond pattern with an eye with a solid blue pupil.
  • Continue the above logic to complete the pattern. The first five tiles are shown (B) and the final solution. Successfully completing the puzzle opens a door.
