Game Introduction – MacGuffin’s Curse

Welcome to the MacGuffin’s Curse walkthrough on Gamezebo. MacGuffin’s Curse is a puzzle/adventure game created by Brawsome. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide on how to complete MacGuffin’s Curse.

General Information

Main Menu

  • The main menu is both mouse- and keyboard-controlled; you can scroll through the items with your arrow keys or just click on them
  • Click on one of the three profile slots to start the game
  • To erase a profile and start again, first click on “erase profile” and then select the profile you want to erase. Hit enter to confirm or Esc to cancel
  • Hit Esc to quit the game, then hit enter to confirm or Esc again to cancel

Controls

This game is pretty much entirely keyboard-controlled. Apart from the arrow keys, which are used to walk around, there are six action keys:

  • N – Main action key. Use it to interact with people and objects.
  • M – “Move” key. Use it to push and pull crates and batteries as wolf. Hold down the M key while using the arrows to navigate.
  • Esc – Menu. The menu contains an options section where you can change sound volumes and toggle between windowed and full screen mode. You can also use the menu to review your badges and the comics and evidence you’ve found. The most useful part of the menu is the interactive map, which you can use to quickly jump between locations you’ve previously visited. Finally, you can go to the menu to save and quit your game.
  • Q – Quest log. Scroll through active and completed quests and check inventory items.
  • R – Reset. Use this key to reset puzzles when you’ve messed up. On a non-puzzle map the R key gives you random funny comments about the map you’re on.
  • Z – Hint. Use this key to call Detective Strump for help. Tell him you’re stuck and he will give you hints on how to solve the puzzle. You can call him a second time for a more detailed hint. If you really can’t solve the puzzle you can ask Strump to solve it for you. This means that he will simply unlock the next door without doing the puzzle. You can go back later and try the puzzle again if you like.

Lucas and the Werewolf

To solve the puzzles in this game, you frequently have to toggle between Lucas in his human and werewolf form. You can do this by walking into a patch of moonlight, either as a circle on the ground or through a window, and hitting N on your keyboard.

Occasionally there will be “change tiles” that also allow you to change form, but these tiles are one directional. A change tile with a gold wolf changes Lucas into a werewolf while a change tile with a silver wolf can change the werewolf back to Lucas.

Lucas and the wolf can execute very specific actions, so for each puzzle you need to figure out the specific sequence of actions to solve the puzzle.

Lucas can:

  • Open safes
  • Interact with consoles
  • Open and close doors
  • Swim
  • Go through vortexes

Wolf can:

  • Push and pull crates and batteries
  • Push heavy crates
  • Break rocks
  • Dig
