Hidden Mysteries: Notre Dame - Game Introduction

Welcome to the Hidden Mysteries: Notre Dame- Secrets of Paris walkthrough on Gamezebo. Hidden Mysteries: Notre Dame- Secrets of Paris is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by Gunnar Games and GameMill Entertainment. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Hidden Mysteries: Notre Dame- Secrets of Paris.

General Tips

  • Notre Dame: Secrets of Paris is a game that requires a fair amount of backtracking. As such, the order in which tasks can be completed in the game varies widely. This walkthrough has been written in such a way as to provide one of the easiest and most linear paths through the game possible. Locations have also been labeled in the guide, so hopefully navigating your way won't be too confusing.
  • Key Items in the guide are capitalized (for example: Brochures or Journal Clues). INVENTORY ITEMS are written like so. All inventory items are circled in red in the guide below.
  • Hints in the game are unlimited, however they will require time to recharge and can only be used within hidden object scenes. There is no hint system for the main gameplay areas, and there are no clicking penalties.
  • Inventory items are displayed at the bottom of the screen. You can scroll through these items using the arrows on either side of the inventory bar.
  • To access the Menu at any time during gameplay, simply select “Menu” in the bottom left-hand corner.
  • The Journal, located in the lower left corner of the screen, will keep track of Clues you collect. These clues may be storyline-related, simply informative, or can even help you solve puzzles.
  • The Map, located in the lower right corner of the screen, will show you where you are and help you navigate more easily.
  • The Tasks button in the lower right corner of the screen will help you keep track of what you need to do.
