Insider Tales - The Stolen Venus Tips

Check out our strategy guide for Insider Tales-The Stolen Venus.

GENERAL TIPS

  • There is no timer in the game, you can take your time and complete the puzzles at your own pace. There are several mini games in this game but you cannot skip them. If you get stuck you will not be able to move on. Fortunately, this guide will keep things moving for you since it has solutions to all the puzzles in which you cannot use a hint.
  • You can use a hint when you get stuck and can't find an item. When you click on a hint, the game will show you the location of one random item. The game has unlimited hints but you have to wait for it to recharge itself in order for you to use it. You will know the hints are ready to be used when you see that the hint circle is completely full. The hint circle will also flash slightly when it is ready for use.
  • If you don't want to use a hint, or it is not available at the time, you can click on the name on the list and you will be able to see a silhouette of what the item looks like. The silhouette will appear in the lower left corner, next to the hint button. Seeing the silhouette can make it a lot easier to find the items.
  • If you click randomly on the scene too many times your cursor will turn black and will stop working for a bit. Just wait for a few seconds and the cursor will come back to its natural state.
  • Some of the items in the game are mis-labeled. These are a few examples of mis-labeled items in the game. The first part is the actual word used in the game, the word next to it is what you really need to look for.
  • Lamp=Light Bulb
  • Football=Soccer Ball
  • Goblet=Trophy
  • Tube= Glue Bottle


SPOILER ALERT!!!!
  • There are many mini games in Inside Tales-The Stolen Venus. Most are self-explanatory but some are not. Each mini game is explained in the next section of the guide. Most mini games will have screenshots, text and videos to help you understand what you have to do. Some of the mini games may only have a screenshot with no text available.
  • Please scroll down to the section that you need help with. Please stop reading now if you don't want to view the solutions to the puzzles in this game.

PHOTO READY


(PLEASE CLICK HERE TO WATCH A VIDEO SOLUTION)
  • This is a memory mini game. The pictures will flip over for a few seconds. You have to remember which pictures were flipped over and then click on them.
  • If you're incorrect you will have to start all over again. Each time you guess a correct sequence, a new one will become available. Guess all the sequences correctly and you will pass this level.
  • The solutions to this puzzle may be random, so you may or may not get the same results as in the video.

FRAGMENTED PIECES

  • In this scene you have to find the items that are at the bottom of the page in the main scene. The twist is that items will be fragmented into 2 or 3 pieces in the scene.
  • Each time you find a piece, that fragmented piece will show up in the picture at the bottom. This will help you find the rest of the fragmented piece since you can get a visual cue of what the rest of the fragmented item looks like.

FRAGMENTED PIECES

The pieces will NOT lock into the box until ALL pieces are in the right place. Just play around with the pieces until you can make it all fit.

PUT OBJECTS IN THE RIGHT PLACE


  • There are 16 objects that need to be put back in their place. Grab the items that are at the bottom of the scene and place them on the side of the page they belong to.
  • Since there are 16 objects to place it is easier to show you the screenshot with the location of the items that are already in the scene. Just put the replacement pieces on the opposite part of the page.

RECONSTRUCT THE PICTURE-DOG PUZZLE


  • Reconstruct the picture by swapping its pieces around. You can only swap pieces that are next to each other.
