How To Play

Search Level Layout

Cajun Cop

  • Item Board – This area lists the items that you must find in this level.
  • Inventory Board – Some of the items you find might be placed in the
    Inventory Board. You will need to use these items
    in puzzles and mini-games. To use an inventory item,
    first click on the item, and then on the location
    where you wish to use it.
  • Hint Button – If you get stuck and can’t find an item, click on this
    button for a hint. Use the hints wisely–the Hint Button
    takes 45 seconds to recharge after every use.
  • Menu Button – Click this button to access game options, or to return
    to the main menu.

Portals

Cajun Cop

  • Portals allow you to go to other search venues in the same
    chapter. They look like animated clouds of glowing particles.
    Move the cursor over the portal to display the name of the
    destination search venue.

Back Button

Cajun Cop

  • Some dead-end search venues have a back button to let
    you return to the previous area. Roll your cursor over
    the back button to see the name of the destination.

Hotspots

Cajun Cop

  • Some areas in the search levels require closer examination. These could
    lead to puzzles, or to areas where additional items are hidden.
    When your cursor passes over one of these ‘hotspots,’ it changes
    to a magnifying glass, and the border of the hotspot pulses in
    white.
  • If you play the game in ‘Rookie Cop’ mode, these areas are highlighted
    by sparkling particles to make them easier to find.

Movable Objects

Cajun Cop

  • Some objects in the search levels are hidden behind other objects. These foreground
    objects must be lifted or slid out of the way to reveal the
    concealed object. When your cursor passes over one of these
    movable objects, it changes to a grasping hand.
  • If you play the game in ‘Rookie Cop’ mode, movable objects are highlighted
    by sparkling particles to make them easier to find.

Using the Walkthrough

  • Items circled in yellow – These are objects that you must
    find every time you play the game; these objects may go into
    your inventory or they enhance the game’s storyline. Most of
    the objects listed in your ‘to find’ list are picked at random
    every time you play the game; this makes for more interesting
    replay.
  • Items circled in green – These are objects you can move
    by dragging them with the cursor. Sometimes objects on your
    ‘to find’ list are hidden behind these movable objects.
  • Items and areas outlined in red – Some of these objects or areas are
    involved in puzzles, and others need to be combined with items
    from your inventory.
