Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills - Game Introduction

Welcome to the Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills walkthrough on Gamezebo. Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by ZenProducers. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Celtic Lore: Sidhe Hills.

General Tips

  • From the very start of the game, you can choose between two game modes: Casual and Expert. Casual mode is easier to play with faster hint recharging, tutorial, more hints, tips, and direct tasks. Expert mode features more mystery with riddling tasks, harder puzzles, and slower hint recharging. The game difficulty can be changed at any time via the Options menu.
  • Hints are available at any point throughout the game. Hints are unlimited, however will require a certain amount of time to recharge.
  • Puzzles may be skipped after a certain amount of time has passed.
  • Excessive random clicking will result in your cursor being disabled for a short period of time.
  • Inventory items can be found at the bottom of the screen. Holding an inventory item over an area in which it can be used will result in interactive gears appearing, and the area around the item on your cursor glowing yellow.
  • Some hidden object areas stretch over more than one screen or area. In such cases, if the objects are listed via words, blue means they're in the area you're in, and orange means they're in another area. The same applies to silhouette objects, only they will appear purple in your immediate area and gray if they're in another location.
  • In some areas, there are objects which can or must be moved in order to find an object. These applicable objects are squared in red in the guide below.
  • Puzzle solutions may be randomized, and may differ depending on the gameplay difficulty selected.
