House of 100 Doors - Game Introduction

Welcome to the House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition walkthrough on Gamezebo. House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by Alawar Entertainment. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition.

General Tips

  • When starting the game for the first time, you can choose between one of two modes: Casual or Expert. Casual features the Hint button taking 60 seconds to refill, and will highlight interactive zones for you. Expert features the Hint button taking 2 minutes to refill, and interactive zones won't be highlighted.
  • Throughout the game are hidden Beyond Objects. There are 35 in total: each one is circled in yellow and their locations shown in the guide below. Beyond Objects do not appear in the bonus adventure.
  • Upon completing the main adventure, the bonus adventure will be unlocked. This section is covered as the last chapter of this guide.
  • In the bottom left corner of the screen is the journal. This will keep track of clues and notes as you discover them, and also features a handy map. Select the map and you will be able to see all the rooms you've visited, how many you haven't, where you currently are, and what rooms have things you can currently do in them.
  • In the bottom right corner of the screen is the Hint button. Hints are unlimited, but require between 60 seconds and 2 minutes to reactivate depending on your game difficulty selected. During puzzles, this same button will fill, giving you a chance to skip puzzles after a certain amount of time has passed.
  • Many of the hidden object areas of the game feature further close-ups where additional items on the list are hidden. Objects listed in red require revealing or combining of some kind before they can be crossed from your list.
