General Information

  • You can choose to play in Casual, Advanced or Hard mode. In Casual Mode you get a Hints button, no click penalties and active areas are highlighted. In Advanced Mode you get hints, penalties and active areas are not highlighted. In Hard Mode you get no hints, penalties and active areas are not highlighted
  • As with most games of this kind, the cursor changes into a magnifying glass when you can interact with or zoom in on something, a hand when you can take something for your inventory, and a directional arrow where you can move on to another scene

 The Cats of Ulthar

Drag the arrow to all five numbers in sequence and let go at each number to lock it in. You don’t have to go left, right, left, as long as you don’t stop at any other number than the ones in the code. Each number will light up green when it’s correct and the whole panel will flash green when the code has been entered. If it flashes green and then goes off again before you’ve finished, it means that you erroneously clicked on the handle or released it on a wrong number. If that happens, start again. The best way of doing this is by dragging the little arrow on the handle
