Hotel - Game Introduction
Welcome to the walkthrough for Hotel on Gamezebo. Hotel is a point and click adventure game for the PC by Cateia Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to complete Hotel.
- The default cursor is the white arrow. Move the mouse cursor around and the icon will change when it moves over a hotspot. The enter button or the Help button can be used to show all of these hotspots on the screen. The cursor will change to a yellow color when it passes over an area that can be walked to. The magnifying glass means that the object can be examined, the hand icon shows that there is an object that can be interacted with or added to the inventory, and the speech bubble icon shows that a conversation can be started with a character.
- The F1 key or the Help button at the bottom of the screen can be used to bring up a list of shortcut keys used in the game. Some helpful shortcuts to save time include pressing the space key to skip conversations and animations, and double clicking to instantly transport to locations that have already been visited without having to walk there. The space key can also be held down while Bridget is walking to make her move much faster.
- Conversations are frequently carried out with other characters in the game, and in most conversations you will have a list of topics to pick from. It is important to talk to all characters about every topic, as sometimes the only way of moving past a certain point in the game is to have talked with a character about a particular subject.
- The inventory displays a list of items that have been picked up in the game. Certain items can be double-clicked in order to zoom in or use them while they are in the inventory. While most items are used on other objects in the game window, some items are combined with another item in the inventory in order to make a new item.
- The collector's edition of Hotel features a character biography for all of the characters in the game, an in-game strategy guide, six pieces of bonus artwork, four screensavers and six music tracks.
