GAME INTRODUCTION

GAME INFORMATION

  • There are 12 chapters in this game. Each chapter has various hidden object “Hotspots” with one puzzle somewhere within the level. After finishing the level, you will get an item to help you finish the game. Each chapter must be completed to move to the next chapter.
  • You may replay any levels that you have already finished.
  • In total there are 12 puzzles and 29 Hotspots.
  • There is no time limit or point system, so you can use a hint whenever you want. However, you have to wait one minute to use the next hint.
  • You can skip a puzzle one minute after you start.

GENERAL TIPS

  • In each area you may see single stars or multiple stars sparkling on the objects you need to find. A single star means the object is an inventory item or a puzzle item; multiple stars on an object signify a Hotspot.
  • Some times there are no stars (or clues) on where to use inventory items, but the cursor will change to a magnifying glass when the item or spot is important for passing the chapter.
  • Some inventory items need to be combined to make new items.
  • The first series of Hotspots in each level will show only the outlines of the objects you need to find.
  • The second series (after the puzzle) will only give you the name of the objects to find.
  • At the end of a chapter, you will receive a symbol. It is important to remember or write down the symbols because in the final puzzle you will need to line them up in the order they were found.
