General Information

Welcome to the Mystery Cruise walkthrough on Gamezebo. Mystery Cruise is a hidden object game played on PC created by Alawar Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Mystery Cruise.

Main Menu

  • The Play button starts the game with the currently selected profile.
  • The Change Player button opens the profile window where profiles can be selected, created and deleted.
  • The Options button opens a window where there are slider bars to adjust sound effects and music volume. There is an option to switch between full screen and windowed mode. The credits list can also be accessed from the options window.
  • The Exit button exits the game if Yes is selected or returns to the main menu if No is selected.


How to Play

  • The default cursor in the game is the arrow. Move the cursor around the screen. As a majority of this game consists of hidden object scenes, the cursor will not change when it passes over an object of interest. Left click when the cursor passes over an object to remove it from the list.
  • The hidden object scenes present a list of objects that need to be found. Many of the objects to be found are random and will not be the same from one game to the next. The exceptions are inventory items that are received after the scene has been completed, and lens frame objects.
  • Some scenes require purple objects to be found. These are objects that are hidden in another scene within the main scene, and finding the scene requires clicking an object such as a drawer or a briefcase. The objects that open these scenes are identified in the walkthrough with a purple outline.
  • The lens frame is an object that becomes available about half-way through the game. It appears next to the hint button at the bottom-right corner of the screen, and is required to find objects in a light purple text. After the lens frame has been selected, move it slowly over the screen and it will show invisible objects that can then be selected.
  • The journal icon appears when the lens frame is available. Select it to show the progress that has been made for collecting the souls.
  • After a hint has been used, it takes 1 minute for the hint button to become active again. Clicking too quickly causes the cursor to break apart for 6 seconds, and no objects can be selected when this happens.
  • There are various mini-games that are encountered in the main adventure. A skip button to automatically complete these mini-games becomes active after 2 minutes.
