General Tips

  • All scenes will have an area in which a single sparkle appears or several sparkles appear.
  • A single sparkle indicates an interactive area in the game. This area may allow you to move to a different scene or exit out of a scene. It can also indicate an area that you need to investigate further.
  • Several sparkles in a cluster indicate a Hidden Object scene. These scenes contain inventory items needed to complete your journey.
  • Certain Hidden Object scenes will require that you click on a part of the scene to uncover a hidden area. They can be items like a piece of cloth that needs to be removed or a cabinet that needs to be opened. A hand icon will appear over such areas in the game.
  • When the cursor turns into a magnifying glass it means you can zoom in to an area in the scene. You can sometimes find inventory items in these areas. In other instances a magnifying glass will allow you to read clues that will help you in the game or they can open up a mini-game.
  • If a door is open you can travel to that location by clicking on the area in which your cursor turns into a globe icon.
  • When your cursor changes into a hand icon you should click on that area to interact with it. The hand icon allows you to pick up inventory items or explore certain areas.

Hints
