Game Introduction - Ghost Encounters: Deadwood

Welcome to the Ghost Encounters: Deadwood walkthrough on Gamezebo. Ghost Encounters: Deadwood is a Hidden Object Game created by Anarchy Enterprises. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints and a strategy guide on how to complete Ghost Encounters: Deadwood.

General Tips

This hidden object game requires visiting several locations and using inventory items to advance play.

  • Play is mostly linear although there are some options for the order in which to explore locations.

  • Begin play by selecting a mode:

    • Casual - Hint and Skip buttons recharge faster. Active zones are highlighted by sparkles.

    • Advanced - Hint and Skip buttons recharge slower. Active zones are not indicated.

  • Modes can only be changed by creating a new profile.

  • Options - The "Eye Candy" option refers how sharp the graphics are. The lower the setting the faster it may play on slower computers.

  • The Journal opens and glows when new information is added.

  • Always move the cursor around a scene. Watch the cursor to see if it changes into a hand to interact with objects or magnifying glass for to inspect an area. Gears indicate a task that needs to be performed with an inventory item. A blue hand means a special sense is being used to obtain clues.

Walkthrough Tips

  • CAPITALIZED inventory items are meant to make it easier to find where this guide may differ from your own play. Inventory items are highlighted in blue with a white border in the screenshots.

  • If you don't have an item referenced in this guide, click and hold the "Ctrl" key and then press the "F" key. This opens a Find area in your web browser. Type in the name of the object as it appears in this guide to find where else it's referenced.

  • To minimize back and forth moves, all available inventory items in a scene are picked up when first encountered.
