Vampire Saga: Welcome to Hell Lock – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Vampire Saga: Welcome to Hell Lock walkthrough on Gamezebo. Vampire Saga: Welcome to Hell Lock is a hidden object/adventure game played on the PC created by Alawar. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Vampire Saga: Welcome to Hell Lock.

How to Use this Walkthrough (Please read)

  • This walkthrough is meant to be used as a guide to assist in solving mini-puzzles and acquiring all items in order to complete the game. You may explore locations in the order you wish, this walkthrough is written to take the most direct route to the game’s finish.
  • Play the tutorial!!!! This walkthrough will assume you have and won’t explain anything explained in the tutorial. The tutorial is only available in Casual mode. If you want to play Expert, I recommend starting the game in Casual mode, play the tutorial and then restart the game under a new profile and play on Expert.
  • Inventory objects will be written in bold. The walkthrough will state, “Use the inventory item on the blah blah,” because it assumes you have the item. If you don’t have the item, on your keyboard, press CTRL+F (at the same time). In the text box, type the name of the item you are looking for and press ENTER. This will scan this page for the appearance of that word.

Gameplay and Tips

  • This is a hidden object adventure game. You will move from location to location solving hidden object hunts, mini-puzzles and picking up items to use in order to proceed in the game.
  • You can choose the difficulty of the game. If you play in Casual mode, sparkles highlight points of interest, inventory objects, puzzles and hidden object hunts. When your cursor is near an object to be found, its name on the list will eventually turn green. As well, you have the option of playing the tutorial (recommended) and the hint feature recharges faster. Expert has no sparkles, no tutorial, object names do not turn green and the hint function takes longer to recharge.
  • If your cursor is jerky or doesn’t respond quick enough, go to Options (from the Menu screen or tab) and deselect custom cursor. Areas of interest will be indicated by a finger click cursor.
  • The Journal button allows you to read the journal entries. Check your journal often (more so than other games) as it will usually tell you where to use an item or what you’ll need to do in that scene).
  • The Main Menu button at the top left of the screen will bring you back to the main screen.
  • Closing a window – To close the zoom-in windows, click the Close button. Most games of this genre allow you to click anywhere outside of the window but this game makes you click Close.
  • Mini-puzzles can be skipped. To leave a mini-puzzle once it has started, click Close to close the window.
  • Hint system – Hints are available in the bottom right-hand of the screen. Using a hint in the adventure part of the game will guide you as to where to go next.
  • There is no timer or point system.
  • There are two areas in this game that require multiple inventory items. When you have an item that can be placed in that area, place it. Don’t wait until you have all the items needed. For example, you need to fix a machine and you need five parts to fix it. As you find each part, return to the machine and add the item. In most games of this genre, you would wait until you had gathered all the items and then return to it and fix it. In this game, add the item as that will trigger something new that needs to be found or completed. Please note that example is just an example.

Hidden Object Hunts

  • Hidden object hunts provide a list of items to find. Click on items in the scene to cross them off the list. Once you have found all the hidden objects, an item is added to your inventory.
  • Hidden objects screenshots will only highlight the items (yellow circles).
  • If you misclick too fast and often, your cursor becomes “locked” for a few seconds. There is no scoring or trophies in this game so it doesn’t affect outcome or scoring.
  • Hint system – Hints are available in the bottom right-hand of the screen. Using a hint in a hidden object scene will highlight an object.
  • When your cursor is near an object to be found, its name on the list will eventually turn green.
  • To leave a hidden object hunt, put the cursor at the very bottom of the screen and when it turns into an open door, click.

Navigation

 Welcome to Hell Lock

  • To move from scene to scene, put your cursor at the edge of the scene or on a doorway. Arrows will appear indicating which directions you can move in. Once you’ve visited a location for the first time, you will either manually take a photo of the scene or a photo will be taken automatically. The photos will be added to an album located at the bottom left of your screen. From that point on, you can “jump” from location to location using the album.
  • The photos will indicate areas that need an action performed or that have a hidden object scene. A gear will appear at the bottom right of the photo if an action needs to be performed and the white explosion appears indicating a hidden object hunt needs to be completed.

Start the Game – Tutorial

  • You can only play the tutorial if you have chosen to play in Casual mode. If you want to play in Expert mode, I recommend starting in Casual and playing the tutorial as key elements will be explained. Then you can go back to the main menu, create new player profile and start a new game in Expert mode.
  • From the Title screen, press Play. Enter your name and click Ok. When asked if you want to learn how to play, click Yes. Even if you are very experienced with this genre, play the tutorial as it does contain some different elements. This walkthrough is going to assume you took the walkthrough and won’t explain what the walkthrough covered.
  • Note: If your cursor is jerky or doesn’t respond quick enough, go to Options (from the Menu screen or tab) and deselect custom cursor. Areas of interest will be indicated by a finger click cursor.
  • Note: If you do not take the picture, this scene will NOT be added to your photo album. When you go to the next scene on the left, you will not be able to return and you will have to restart the game under a new player profile.
