Walkthrough Menu

General Tips

  • There are 4 chapters in the game, all varying in length.
  • This game is a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure. It has few Hidden Object Scenes, some mini-games and several interactive areas to play with.
  • If you click randomly in the Hidden Object Scenes your cursor will float around wildly for a few seconds.
  • There are no timers in the game and all mini-games can be skipped once the skip meter has been filled.
  • When the magnifying glass cursor appears it means you can either pick up an inventory item or you can enter a Hidden Object Scene.
  • You can skip the cut scenes by clicking on the letter “S” on your keyboard or by clicking the Skip button in the upper left.

Navigational Arrows

Empress of the Deep

  • There are several ways to navigate the game.
  • Large Navigational Arrows will appear on the scene which will show you which directions to go in.
  • In order to follow the directions in the game, the walkthrough will say go left, forward, right etc.
  • In some instances the directions will tell you to go “forward left’, which means the arrow can be pointing straight ahead but will be a bit to the left instead of in the middle.
  • The same goes for ‘forward right’ in this instance the arrow is pointing straight ahead but it is closer to the right than to the middle.

Book

Empress of the Deep

  • The book has 4 tabs on it, the hand with pen, the map, the flower and the magnifying glass tab.
  • Hand and Pen Tab – This tab allows you to gain valuable insight into the story.
  • Magnifying Glass Tab – The magnifying glass tab will store sketches related to puzzle solutions in the game.
  • Flowers – Click on the flower tab on the right side of the book. Each time you collect one of the ten flowers the image will appear in the book.
  • To exit out of the book click on the red “X” button in the upper right corner.

Map

Empress of the Deep

  • The map will come in very handy in this game since it can help you find your way back to a location.
  • Open your book in the lower left corner and click on the map tab above the left page.
  • The red circle on the map represents your current location.
  • You can hover your mouse over a location to see a name and a thumbnail of that location in the lower right corner of the book.
  • If you’re stuck and don’t know what to do, click on a Hint and the map page will open up and form a blue circle in the area that you need to investigate next. Click on the blue circle to see a thumbnail of that area in the lower right.

Inventory Items

Empress of the Deep

  • Your Inventory Items will be stored on the tray in the lower center of the scene.
  • The Inventory Tray will be out of view until you bring it up. Simply pass your mouse over the Inventory Tab in the lower left to view its contents.
  • Your inventory may get full at times; make sure that you use the arrows on each side of the tray to scroll through all available items.
  • To use an Inventory Item, drag it to the area in which you want to use it.
  • In the walkthrough all Inventory Items will be written in ALL CAPS to make them easier to find.

Hidden Purple ORBs

Empress of the Deep

  • There are 10 Hidden Purple Orbs that you need to activate in the game.
  • The Purple Orbs vary in size.
  • When you see a Purple ORB click on it to activate it.
  • You can look in your book to see how many Purple Orbs you’ve collected so far.
  • Once a Purple Orb has been activated it will have a faint glow around it for the duration of the game.

Mini-games

  • There are very few instructions for the mini-games. You can click on the hint to read the instructions one time.
  • The walkthrough tries to provide you with detailed instructions and solutions for all mini-games.
  • When you use the hint to find instructions, the skip button will start to fill. Once the skip button is full you can skip that mini-game if you wish.

Hints

Empress of the Deep

  • Hints are unlimited but you have to wait for them to recharge before you can use them again.
  • Hints can be used in Hidden Object Scenes to find a random item on the list.
