Hidden Object Scenes

? Each time you play the game the hidden object scenes will be the same but the items you are asked to find will be different as it is a random assignment.

? In this guide we will show all the items and their locations by circling and color coding them. Note that this may not be the same as your screen but there are likely to be several items in common so it is worth a look if you are stuck.

? C. Click on the door to trigger the puzzle.

 A Search and Rescue Mystery

? A. Take all of the gems from inventory one at a time and place on the game board. Once all four are on the board the puzzle will unlock. Click on “?” to read instructions.

? The goal of the puzzle is to get all of the gems in the center in the correct spot. Once a gem is in the correct spot it will light up and lock into place.

? The grey stones have arrows on them and they will swap tiles with whatever tile they are pointing toward. Whenever a tile touches the edge of a wall the arrows will bump and change to the opposite direction. (An arrow traveling right will turn into a left arrow once you hit a wall.)

? Black tiles also move in the direction of the arrows exchanging spots with anything it points to and when they hit the edge of a wall will bump and turn the opposite way.

? The easiest way to play this game is to start with the gem that has the shortest distance to move which is the red gem. Maneuver the gem by trading places with gems that are moving in the direction of the red slot. Once you lock red in then move on to green, then gold, and finally blue which is the trickiest. You will have to constantly click through the arrows but its not really too hard if you concentrate on getting an arrow to the wall to change direction then bringing it to the colored gem to move it one spot closer then go back to the grey stones move it til it hits the wall and then use it again to bump the colored gem down one spot. If you do this each time it is pretty easy to move the gems around the board.

? B. This is how the game board looks when you start.

? C. This is a shot of how the puzzle should look when solved.

? Once you have all of the gems in place the door will open for you.
