Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot’s Cove – Game Introduction

Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove is an interactive hidden object puzzle game created by Legacy Games. 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. Gamezebo’s strategy guide will provide you with detailed images, tips, information, and hints on how to play your best game.

General Tips

  • 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.
  • Inventory objects will be written in CAPITALS and highlighted in yellow in the screenshots. 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.
  • Play the tutorial! It will explain gameplay elements. The tutorial is available in Casual mode only.
  • Often you need to perform an action (i.e., place or collect an inventory item) in order for the game to progress. Before assuming the game has a glitch, go through your inventory and see if you can place any of your items anywhere or look for an item to pick up, switch to flip, etc.
  • The Menu button at the bottom left of the screen gives access to the options screen and can bring you back to the main menu.
  • Items collected throughout the game go into your inventory, located at the bottom of your screen.
  • Closing a window – To close the zoom-in windows, click the X or click anywhere outside the window to close it. Tip: If you can zoom in on the area again, you likely haven’t found everything you needed to find.
  • Sparkles that form a question mark indicate a puzzle.

Difficulty Modes

  • There are two difficulty modes.
  • Casual Mode has faster filling Hint and Skip meters and sparkles indicate all active areas.
  • Expert Mode has slower filling Hint and Skip meters and there are no sparkles to indicate active areas.
  • You cannot change the difficulty setting during the game.

Cursors

  • The default cursor looks like a hand.
  • A magnifying glass indicates you can inspect the area more closely.
  • A grabbing hand indicates you can pick up an item to add to your inventory.
  • Spinning gears indicate you can perform an action with an inventory item.
  • A large arrow indicates you can move in that direction.
  • Move your cursor over every aspect of a scene and watch for it to change, it’s the only way to find everything, especially if playing in Expert mode.

Hidden Objects scenes (HOS)

  • Hidden object scenes provide a list of items to find however all the vowels are missing. Find all the vowel typewriter keys to complete the list of items.
  • You can still find the items without finding all the typewriter keys. You don’t need to find all the typewriter keys to finish the hidden object hunt.
  • After you find all the items, one item will be added to your inventory.
  • The items are different each game so only the inventory item will be indicated by a yellow highlight in the screenshots.
  • Typewriter keys are indicated with white highlights.

Journal

  • Your journal is located at the bottom right of the screen.
  • The journal contains your objectives and provides clues to solve puzzles.

Hint and Skip

  • The Hint button is the typewriter located at the bottom left of the screen. After using a hint, it requires time to recharge (length of time depends on your game’s difficulty setting).
  • Hints used in hidden object scenes will point out an item to find.
  • Hints used during the adventure mode will point out what to focus on in the scene in what direction to move.
  • Skip allows you to skip mini-puzzles. The skip button will appear on the typewriter once it charges.
  • To start the game, enter your name, then press Done. From the main screen, click Play.
