General Tips

  • This is a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game. Throughout the guide, we will use the acronym ‘HOS’ for Hidden Object Scenes.
  • There is no timer.
  • Use the Main Menu icon in the lower left to return to the Main Menu.
  • From the Main Menu, you can access the OPTIONS at any time. You can adjust the brightness, and choose other display options.
  • Use ‘Change the Difficulty’ in the lower left of the Main Menu screen to change from Expert to Normal mode. The Normal Mode highlights Active Areas with sparkles and has a faster Hint recharge.
  • The HINT button only works in the HOS. You have unlimited hints, just wait for the HINT button to recharge.
  • Some main scenes and mini-games have a HELP button in the upper right corner which will give you some clues about what to do next.
  • There is a Map Icon in the lower right. Available Active Areas are marked with a ‘!’ Available HOS are marked with a ‘?’.
  • Click on the X by the Skull in the upper right to exit a mini-game or a zoom scene.
  • This game does not allow you to use Active Areas in the scene until you need them. For example, if there are two cabinets in the scene, you might open one, but not be allowed to open the other until after you have read a poster on the wall. So whenever you complete a zoom scene or collect an inventory item, scan the room again to see if there is anything new that you can do.
