Welcome to Gamezebo’s walkthrough for The Dracula Files.


The List: All items in the List must be completed to clear an area. Some items to find are random, and some are special inventory items that can be collected and used elsewhere in the scene.

Mystic Mirror: when an item is click on in the list, its silhouette will be revealed in the Mystic Mirror, the gray orb in the lower left of the screen.

All-Seeing Eye (Hints): To use a hint, first click on the item in the List that you wish to reveal, then click on the eye in the lower right corner of the screen. There are unlimited hints, but they take time to recharge.
