Secrets of the Dark – Temple of the Night Game Introduction

Welcome to the Secrets of the Dark – Temple of the Night walkthrough on Gamezebo. Secrets of the Dark – Temple of the Night is a Hidden Object Game played on the PC created by [company name]. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints and a strategy guide on how to complete Secrets of the Dark – Temple of the Night.

General Tips

  • Play is mostly non-linear although some tasks must be completed to open hidden object scenes or to advance play. This walkthrough attempts to take the most direct route so certain areas may not be explored even though they are available.
  • CAPITALIZED inventory items are meant to make it easier to find where this guide may deviate from your own play.
  • Play takes place in two dimensions: regular and demon realm. Switching between the dimensions requires “Changing Illumination” by clicking a light source. The source glows orange.
  • Moving to different locations can only be done in the dimension in which they were discovered.
  • This is not a timed game. However, your cumulative time is kept for a High Score statistic. Skipping puzzles adds an additional 30 minutes to your time.

Main Menu:

  • Play – Begin or resume a game. The first time you play you must select a difficulty level:
    • Regular – Hint and Skip buttons recharge faster. Hidden object areas are illuminated.

  • Journal – Clicking an object can add clues or information. The diary glows when new information is added. You can also replay cut scenes.
  • Inventory/Item List – A scrollable list of icons showing available items or a list of hidden items to be collected or placed.
  • Strategy Guide – A built in guide if you need help.

Symbol Meanings:

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 interactive help. 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 in yellow type indicate two items must be combined to form the object. Move your cursor around until the cursor turns into a hand to find the objects to combine.

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

Assumptions:

  • After you have gone back and forth between locations more than once, you don’t need to be told how many times to go up or down.
  • You will always explore a secret area as soon as you break the lock.

    • Begin pressing the up arrow for the first number (1) until the light coil comes on. It is a “5”. The symbol at the bottom is a square. The second light (2) also has a square at the bottom so it also must be a “5”. Press the up arrow until a “5” appears in the display. The bulb lights up.
    • The values for lights 3 and 4 are given on the bottom panel. Press the down arrow once for each light. Note the symbol for light 5 is a square. Since a square represents the number 5, press the up arrow 5 times. The second bulb lights up.
    • The equation on the bottom of the panel states that the values for bulb 1 plus the values for bulb 2 equal the code for bulb 3: 55 + 995 = 1050. To get a “0” for positions 7 and 9, press the up arrow once, then the down arrow.

When the code is correctly entered, the door to the Sheriff’s office opens.

  • The amount of current is split evenly among the wires connected to it. For example, the battery in the second slot (yellow) supplies current to 1, 2 and 3. Placing the 180 volt battery adds 60 volts to the counters for 1, 2 and 3. The colored lines show where the current for each battery is going.

  • Go back up to the top.

 Temple of Night

  • Zoom in on the upper right corner of the arch (A). Place the two PLATE WITH HIEROGLYPHIC pieces in the empty slots to start a puzzle.
  • The goal is to rearrange the five moveable plates so the “table has a completed look”. To figure out what this means, look at the table as six three-plate grids. The numbers outside the table represent the three plates next to them. In each grid the first and last color must match.
  • Do the easy grids first:
    • Grid 2. The first piece is locked. It is green so the third piece must also be green. Swap this plate with the green second plate in grid 5.
    • Grid 4. The last plate is red so the first plate must also be red. For now, swap the yellow plate with the first red plate in grid 5.
    • Grid 1. There is only one moveable yellow plate. There is no place in the table to place the yellow plate in a first or third position. By default the yellow plate goes here. If you followed the previous step, the yellow plate is now the first plate in grid 5. Swap the yellow plate in grid 5 with the green plate in grid 1.

The pattern on the outside of each plate may also be a determining factor but I couldn’t see any logic to it. If the table doesn’t slide back after you’ve put the plates as instructed, switch the red and green pieces. See the dashed inset for the solution.

  • Once solved, the plate table slides away revealing a GOLDEN HEAD (B).
  • Place the GOLDEN HEAD in its outline in the center of the gate. Take the ANCIENT MAGIC MACE on the back wall.

  • Collect the BEAKER (C).
  • Exit the museum. Return to the hospital. Go forward to the doctor’s office then down the stairs on the right.

 Temple of Night

  • Play the hidden object scene (A). Collect a DRILL.
  • Zoom in on the chemistry set in the right corner (B).
  • Place the BEAKER in the center of the claw to open a puzzle.
  • The goal is to spread the liquid among the three measuring cups until one cup has the amount specified on the bowl (green). The number at the base of each cup (yellow) indicates how much liquid the cup is currently holding. The number in parenthesis indicates how much each cup can hold. The puzzle must be completed twice. Which cup contains the indicated amount doesn’t matter.
  • Solution 1. Amount required: 8.
    • Pour 1 into 2. Cup 1 now measures 5.
    • Pour 2 into 3.
    • Pour 3 into 1. Cup 1 now measures 8.
  • Solution 2. Amount required: 1.
    • Pour 1 into 3. Cup 3 now measures 3.
    • Pour 3 into 2. Cup 3 is now empty and Cup 2 contains 3.
    • Pour 1 into 3. Cup 3 now measures 3.
    • Pour 3 into 2. Cup 3 now measures 1.

  • Exit the hospital. Go across the street to the hotel.

 Temple of Night

  • Pour the GROWING ESSENCE on the cactus in the lobby (A). Take the CANE.
  • Go down the stairs and continue through the rooms until you reach the stairs.
  • Zoom in on the puzzle on the steps (B). Place the CRYSTAL in the empty spot to start the puzzle.
  • The goal is to rotate the gems until each gem points to one of the same color. The best approach is to click all the crystals to see which colors each contains. Only two crystals contain all four colors.
  • The inset above shows the first six moves. The first crystal, circled in red and white, is a key crystal. It is one of the two crystals that contain all four colors. Crystal 2 has no green. Crystal 3 has only green and blue. Click crystal 1 until its green point is toward crystal 3. Click crystal 2 until its only blue point matches with crystal 1. The way the blue and green points on crystal 3 are positioned, the point toward crystal 4 will be blue. The only decision is what color will point outward toward the board: blue or green. In this instance it is green.
  • Continue around the board working from the set crystals shown above. View the video if you would like to see the entire puzzle solution.
  • SPOILER ALERT! The next screen shot shows the solution. Don’t peek if you want to work it out for yourself.
