Classic Adventures: The Great Gatsby - Game Introduction

Welcome the The Great Gatsby walkthrough on Gamezebo. The Great Gatsby is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by I-Play . This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete The Great Gatsby.

Genreal Tips

  • Hints are unlimited and rechargeable. When using hints, if there's more than one item left to be found, you will need to click on the name of a specific item on the list in order to use it.
  • A point system is used in the game. Earn points as spending currency in the in-game library, which acts as a sort of trophy room.
  • You may find items in back-to-back combination to earn bonus points.
  • Cutscenes are also a source of bonus points. Find the items listed at the beginning of cutscenes, during cutscenes in order to earn more points. If you miss one, don't worry: you can replay a cutscene over again for the objects.
  • The Library is your in-game trophy room. You may customize it however you like using points earned during gameplay. It will also display your new trophies as you earn them.
  • Each scene features a hidden word. The letters are scattered around the scene. If you find all of them, you can earn bonus points, as well as special rewards for your library.
  • Each scene also features a single book of a certain color. Collect these to place on your library shelves.
  • All objects in the game (with the exception of the hidden word letters and books) are randomized. As such, this guide outlines hidden word letters and books only, as well as puzzles, minigames, and cutscenes.
  • Cutscenes may be replayed or skipped.
