Game Introduction – Grim Tales: The Wishes

Welcome to the Grim Tales: The Wishes walkthrough on Gamezebo. Grim Tales: The Wishes is a Hidden Object/Adventure Game created by Elephant Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints and a strategy guide on how to complete Grim Tales: The Wishes.

General Tips

Difficulty Levels

  • There are three playing modes: Casual, Advanced or Hardcore.
  • Select Casual Mode for a relaxed game-play session. Significant game locations are marked with sparkles; hint and skip buttons recharge quickly.
  • Select Advanced Mode to overcome obstacles without extra help. There are no sparkle indicators and hints and skip buttons recharge more slowly.
  • Select Hardcore Mode to play without any help. There are no sparkle indicators, no hints and puzzles cannot be skipped.
  • The playing mode may be changed at any point by clicking the “menu” button in the bottom right of the screen and then selecting “options”.

Cursors

  • The default cursor is an arrow with a blue gem in it. It can change into the following icons:
  • A magnifying glass indicates areas you can inspect more closely.
  • grabbing hand indicates items you can pick up for your inventory.
  • hand with pointed finger indicates objects that require another action. Usually it means you need to use an inventory item on the object.

Hidden Object Scenes

  • All Hidden Object Scenes (HOS) are the standard list of objects to find.
  • Items listed in purple lettering require interacting with the scene to reveal the item or combining one or more items in the scene to create the listed object.
  • Cursor icons in HOS are the same as in the rest of the game.
  • Keeping the point of a hidden object game in mind, only inventory items and solutions for purple-listed items are shown in the screenshots in this walkthrough.

Map

  • An interactive map becomes available after the first few objectives have been completed.
  • Open the map by clicking the compass with a puppet on it in the lower right corner of the playing scene.
  • The map shows all locations needed to complete a particular section of the game.
  • A red “X” indicates your current location.
  • Moving the cursor over an Exclamation Mark opens a window that shows the name, a screenshot of the location and a list of tasks to be completed. Click the Exclamation Mark to switch to that location. Be sure and fully explore a location so the tasks show on the map.
  • A Question Mark means a location has not yet been opened for play.
  • Exit the map without changing locations by clicking the X-button in the upper right corner or clicking the compass in the lower right corner.
  • Location names in this walkthrough correspond to those on the map.

Hint and Skip Buttons

  • In casual and advanced modes there is a hint button in the form of a flower at the bottom left of the screen.
  • If there are no actions to be completed in your present location, the hint button will guide you in the direction you need to go for your next action. The hint button only gets depleted and will need to recharge if it finds an action for you to complete.
  • The hint button can also be used in HOS.
  • In casual and advanced modes puzzles can be skipped once the skip button has charged.
