Love Chronicles: The Sword and the Rose – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Love Chronicles: The Sword and the Rose walkthrough on Gamezebo. Love Chronicles: The Sword and the Rose is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by Vendel Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Love Chronicles: The Sword and the Rose, including the Collector’s Edition bonus chapter.

General Tips

  • At both the beginning of the main game and the bonus adventure, you can choose from one of two play modes: regular mode and expert mode. Regular mode features shorter recharging times for the skip and hint buttons, and active zones are highlighted with sparkles. Expert mode features longer recharging times for the skip and hint buttons, and active zones will not be indicated.
  • All puzzles in the game may be skipped after an allotted amount of time has passed.
  • The hint button is located in the lower right corner of the screen below your journal. Hints are unlimited, but require time to recharge. If there’s nothing left to do in an area, a pop-up will appear showing you where you should go next. If this happens, the hint will not be spent.
  • Also located in the lower right corner of the screen is your journal. This keeps track of your progress in the game, as well as valuable information and clues you come across. Puzzle solutions can often be found within the pages of this book.
  • In the lower left corner of the screen is the rose. Throughout the course of the game, you will be challenged with finding the 33 missing petals. All rose petals are encased in ice, but not to worry– the rose has the power to melt ice whether or not a rose petal is inside. A number is displayed beneath the rose helping you keep track of how many petals you’ve found.
  • Excessive clicking will result in the screen and cursor becoming frozen for a short period of time.
  • Inventory items can be found on the bar at the bottom of the screen. Whenever you click on an item and “use” it, if it has the ability to be used again, it will drop back down to the inventory bar on the rightmost side. So, if your items appeared jumbled, you know why.
  • It should be noted, from the menu you can access the option for whether or not you’d like to see additional snow effects, and how much of it you’d like to see. It’s recommended this option is kept off for slower computers, and the option is off by default.
  • Items are circled in red in the guide below. A square indicates an item is located in that area, but you must zoom in first. Inventory items are listed in all caps.
  • The cursor will display a hand icon when something can be picked up or moved, and will display gears when an item can be or should be used in that location.
  • If you have the Collector’s Edition of the game, you can unlock the bonus adventure once you’ve played through the main quest. The bonus adventure can be accessed via the main menu and is outlined below in the sub-section “Bonus Adventure”.
