Cursed Memories: Secret of Agony Creek - Game Introduction

Welcome to the Cursed Memories: Secret of Agony Creek walkthrough on Gamezebo. Cursed Memories: Secret of Agony Creek is a hidden object/adventure game played on the PC created by Vast Studios. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Cursed Memories: Secret of Agony Creek.

How to Use this Walkthrough (Please read)

  • 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.
  • The tutorial is only available in Relaxed mode. If you are a veteran of these games, there are no new elements introduced in this game.
  • Inventory objects will be written in bold. 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.

Gameplay and Tips

  • This is a hidden object adventure game. 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.
  • There are two difficulty settings: Relaxed mode allows the Hint and Skip puzzles meters to fill faster, areas of interest are indicated by sparkles and there’s a tutorial. Expert mode has a longer filling Hint and Skip meters, there are no sparkles and there is no tutorial.
  • Move your cursor over every aspect of a scene, especially if you are playing in Expert mode. It’s the only way to find everything.
  • Sparkles – If you play in Relaxed mode, sparkles will indicate areas of interest. The sparkles in this game are not overwhelming. Note that sparkles don’t indicate gold pouches.
  • Often you will zoom in on areas to further examine them. To close these windows, click anywhere outside the window. Tip: If you can zoom into an area again after examining it, there are still items for you to take.
  • The Menu button at the bottom left of the screen will bring you back to the main screen.
  • 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 anywhere outside of the window. Tip: If you can zoom in on the area again, you likely haven’t found everything you needed to find.
  • Mini-puzzles can be skipped once the Skip button fills.
  • Hint system – Hints are available in the bottom right-hand of the screen.
  • Hints used in the hidden object scenes will point out an object to be found.
  • Hints used during the adventure mode will indicate something that can be done within a scene. If there is nothing to be done or collected in a scene, it will state (at the top of the screen) “There is nothing I can do in this area right now.” This can mean either there is nothing to be done at the moment as you don’t have the right inventory object or you are completely finished with that scene and there’s no need to return to it again. You will not be told where to go next.
  • Hidden object hunts provide either a list of items to find. Click on items in the scene to cross them off the list. Once you have found all the hidden objects, an item is added to your inventory.
  • Items written in yellow mean the item isn’t readily available. You will have to look inside something (i.e., a box, a drawer, a door, etc.) or you have to perform an action. Move your cursor all around the scene. When it changes into a hand, click to perform an action. Tip: Unlike other games, when you perform an action to reveal items, they remain listed in yellow.
  • Hidden object scenes are different each time you play. Hidden objects screenshots will only highlight (yellow circles) the items added to your inventory. Active areas within a hidden object scene are indicated by white circles/squares, etc.
  • Journal – The journal is located in the bottom left corner. Your journal tracks your game’s progress and also provides hints and clues for puzzles.
  • There is no timer or trophy system.
  • There is no map in this game.

Gold Pouches

  • Collect 30 gold pouches through the game. Collecting them unlocks extras. Collect 10 to unlock the art gallery, collect 20 to unlock the music jukebox and collect all 30 to unlock endless game mode, allowing you to replay puzzles and hidden object scenes.
  • As the Standard Edition is not yet released, there is a strong chance this feature is available only in the Collector’s Edition version.

  • The location of all the gold pouches is available at the bottom of this walkthrough.
  • If you are playing in Relaxed mode, gold pouches are not indicated by sparkles.

Rearrange the parts so each large gem’s smaller gem matches it in colour.
  • Because you can’t leave or reset this puzzle, I can’t give step-by-step instructions because you have probably moved some gems by the time you come to this walkthrough.
  • Puzzle mechanics:
  • Click on a small gem to rotate it.
  • To switch parts of a smaller gem, click on the v-arrow between the large gem and the centre piece to move the centre piece towards the larger gem. The two parts will swap positions.
  • Be careful as moving the centre piece will affect the other gems around it.
  • Click on the outer arrow to move a large gem out of play. Do this when you have a completed gem or you don’t want your gem affected when you move the centre piece. You can only have one large gem out of play at a time.
  • Complete the gems in a row rather than scattered here and there. This way you can take advantage of moving the larger gems out of play.
  • To get the last pieces in, you are going to have to be strategic. In the last three gems. For the last three gems, work the controls until each has three of its matching parts. Then rotate the mismatched colours to line them un in the centre piece.
  • Once you are finished, read the letter.
