Walkthrough Menu

General Tips

  • This is a Hidden Object Adventure game. In addition to the items on the Find List, you must find Key Items that go into your Inventory Tray so they can be used later.
  • All players start the game with a profile called “Samantha.” If you want to use a different name, exit the first scene before you collect any objects, and then start a new profile.
  • There is no timer.
  • Mini-games are untimed and do not require special physical dexterity. There are two instances where you have to click on a slowly moving animal.
  • You will always have a Custom Cursor, but you have a choice of a larger or smaller one. Switch on the Options Menu.
  • The game consists of 6 long chapters, each of which has 5 to 8 Hidden Object Scenes. You will also have to complete 4 or 5 inventory tasks per chapter. Most chapters also have at least two puzzle mini-games, and some have even more.
  • There are a total of 44 Hidden Object Scenes and over a dozen Puzzles in the main game.
  • Use MENU in the lower left to return to the Main Menu.
  • The game autosaves automatically.
  • You can travel to unlocked scenes in any order you like, and revisit scenes as much as you like. If you have done everything you can in a location, you may still need to travel through that area to get to another location.
  • You will exit most scenes by moving the cursor along the bottom of the scene until it turns into a downward pointing yellow arrow, then clicking there to exit. In a few scenes the exit is hidden and you will have to find it, sometimes using inventory objects.
  • Use the MUSEUM option on the Main Menu to go into the Museum and view the Archaeological Finds that Samantha has made during the game.
  • After you have found about half of the SWIFTS in the game you will unlock the bonus UNLIMITED HIDDEN OBJECT MODE from the Main Menu. This optional game lets you choose a Hidden Object Scene, then find all the items there as quickly as you can. Your time is recorded so you can go back and try to beat it later.
  • Each time you start a new profile or replay under the same profile you will get a different find list.
  • You can view your Trophies at any time from the Trophy button on the Main Menu. Note that Trophies are different than the Artifacts you will see in the Museum.
  • Since some of the game Trophies require perfect play (e.g. using no hints for the entire game), we recommend saving these as goals for a replay.

General Tips for the Hint System

Samantha Swift and the Fountains of Fate

  • You start the game with one hint.
  • You can get one additional hint in most locations by collecting a LIGHTNING BOLT.
  • You should also collect the two SWIFT SYMBOLS that are available in most locations. A Swift is a type of bird with long wings. The symbols can be a real bird, a drawing, a silhouette, etc.
  • The number of HINTS you have available is shown in the Hint Counter (B) in the lower left.
  • The number of SWIFTS you have to find is shown by the Swift Counter (C) in the lower right corner that Samantha is holding. It has two spaces. When both are lit up, you have found all the SWIFTS available in this scene.
  • SWIFTS and LIGHTNING BOLTS vary in size and color. The birds may be blue, black, brown, green, tan, etc, and are often against a background of the same color, like a green bird in a green tree. The LIGHTNING BOLTS are usually yellow, but can be red, orange, brown, or even green.
  • When you zoom in to view a puzzle, there are sometimes SWIFTS and a LIGHTNING BOLT in that view as well, so collect them before you start the puzzle.
  • Hints carry over. We played most of the game with about 12 stored up.
  • The HINTS work for both Hidden Objects and inventory tasks. When you click on the HINT counter, a LIGHTNING BOLT will shoot towards the object and then circle it.
  • If there is more than one object left on the Find List, click on a Find List entry, then click on the Hint counter to find that specific object.
  • Although the number of HINTS is limited, there is more to the hint system in this game. If you click on any entry in the Find List, you will see its silhouette in the lower left corner (A). This does not cost a hint. This can be very helpful. However, there is one trophy that you can only get if you never use the Scanner feature in the whole game. We recommend doing this on a replay of the game.
  • If you make too many incorrect clicks in a row, the silhouette feature will be disabled for a few seconds. There is no other penalty, but this will prevent you from getting one of the game trophies.
  • You will also find text hints in the line just above the Find List (D). These will usually tell you if you need to go to another location and then return.
  • Samantha will also make comments that can give you clues as to what to do next.
  • If you are working on a puzzle, you can click on the HINT counter (B) once and you will get more detailed instructions for the game. This does not cost a HINT. At that point the HINT counter will change to a SKIP button in case you want to skip the puzzle.
  • There is a trophy available for completing all the puzzles without using the SKIP, but no other penalty.
  • The cursor is a very important part of the hint system in this game.
  • The cursor will change to a hand when you are at a spot where you can do something in the scene that does not require a Key Item, like looking behind a wall hanging.
  • The cursor will change to gears at a spot where you can use a Key Item.
  • Once you have a Key Item attached to your cursor, go back to the spot where the gears appeared. If the cursor turns red, it’s the wrong object. If the cursor turns blue, it’s the correct object, and you can click there to use it.
  • If the cursor turns to a magnifying glass, you can click to zoom in.
  • If you hover the cursor over an item in your inventory tray, you will see its name.
  • This is a guided adventure game—the game will limit which tasks you can do when. You may think it’s obvious that you need to, say, use a watering can on a dying plant, but nothing happens when you try it. Continue working on the tasks you can do, and try again later to see if the cursor turns to gears at that spot.
  • Similarly, you will not be able to collect an item until its name appears on the Find List.

General Tips for the Inventory Tasks

  • This game has many adventure elements where you must complete tasks important to the story, like opening a locked chest.
  • Inventory tasks cannot be skipped.
  • Key Items are items you will need to complete the inventory tasks. Key Items may appear on the Find List, be stand alone items in the main scene, or be given to you automatically when you complete other tasks.
  • Key Items are not identified ahead of time, so watch your inventory tray to see if new items have been added.
  • Key items may be used in the scene where they are found or later in the game.
  • If you collect more than one of the same kind of item, for example 2 wooden planks, they will go into the same tray in your inventory.
  • Items that are stored as multiples will all be used in the same place, but you will usually have to take them out of the Inventory Tray one at a time until you have placed all of them.
  • If you pick up an item from your Inventory Tray and then decide you don’t want to use it, click on the tray to put it back.
  • To use a Key Item, click on it in the Inventory Tray, move the cursor to where the cursor turns blue, then click again.

General Tips for the Hidden Object Scenes in the Story Mode

  • All objects are generally the right color but many are much larger than lifesize and they are often out of proportion to each other, so that a safety pin might be much larger than a bowling ball.
  • All players start the first scene with only 1 HINT. You can get more hints by collecting the LIGHTNING BOLTS in the scenes.
  • The Find List will be different for different players, but the Key Items will always be the same.
  • More items will be added to the Find List at various times. Items in white can be found immediately. Items in green require that you do something in the scene, like open a box, to reveal them.
  • You cannot collect an item until its name appears on the Find List, except for the SWIFTS and the LIGHTNING BOLTS.
  • Each scene has 2 SWIFTS.
  • Each scene has one LIGHTNING BOLT.

General Tips for the Unlimited Hidden Object Mode (Bonus Game)

  • The Unlimited Hidden Objects Mode is a bonus game available from the Main Menu..
  • If you find every SWIFT, you will unlock the bonus game about half-way through the Story Mode.
  • The bonus game will keep track of your highest score and your time for each scene.
  • Replay as often as you like to see if you can improve your score.
  • Each time you play the bonus game you will get a different Find List.
  • If you completed the game in Story Mode and did not find enough SWIFTS to unlock the bonus game, you can replay under the same name.
  • If you start a new profile, the bonus game will be locked until you have found enough SWIFTS under the new profile name.
