General Tips

  • “Mystery Age: The Dark Priests” is a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game!
  • Use the “MENU” icon in the lower left to return to the Main Menu.
  • The Journal in the lower left has information about the various tasks you have to do. This includes drawings of Quest Items you may need to use.
  • A large gear on a black background means the game is loading.
  • Once you collect the Imperial Staff in the first scene, it will always be in the far left slot of your Inventory tray. Use it on hostile ghosts and animals to make them disappear!
  • When the cursor changes to a magnifying glass, click again: you may get more information about the item at the top of the screen, trigger a mini-game, or open a Hidden Object Scene.
  • A pointing hand cursor indicates the location of a Quest Item or an animation trigger, like a candle lighting.
  • You can return to previous locations by finding the down arrow at the bottom of the screen.
  • As you find each fragmented piece in a Hidden Object Scene, its picture is removed from the Quest Item slot at the bottom.
  • Once you have found all of the pieces of the Quest Item, the item will move to the far right side of the tray, into a slot marked “INVENTORY.”
  • Take the completed Quest Item out of the Inventory Slot and put it back into the scene.
  • Some Quest Items will be used later in another location. You will need to revisit some locations several times before you will be able to complete all the activities there.
  • In several locations the Hidden Object Scene will be available again after you have done other activities.
  • The HINT button recharges very quickly. At first the hints will show you all of the Quest Items in the scene. After you have collected all of the available Quest Items, the hint will show you where to use one of the items.
  • If there is nothing more to do in the location now, the hint will say “There are no more items to find.” However, you may be able to find additional items after you come back with different Quest Items in your inventory.
  • Many puzzles have a random starting position, which means the solutions shown in the guide may be random.
  • The “RESET” button on the puzzles does not always return to your original starting position.
  • If you cannot solve a mini-game, you can use the “SKIP” button in the lower right once it is fully charged. There is no penalty for skipping a puzzle.
