General Tips

  • This is a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game. Throughout the guide, we will use the acronym ‘HOS’ for Hidden Object Scene.
  • There is no timer.
  • Use the Main Menu icon in the lower left to return to the Main Menu.
  • When the cursor turns to a magnifying glass, click to zoom in. If there’s nothing to do there yet, check your Journal — you may have a new Task to complete.
  • The Journal in the lower right has a diary, a list of current Tasks, and a Map. When a Shovel appears on the Map, there is a new HOS in that location.
  • Click on the red X in the top right corner to close the Map or a zoom scene.
  • Click on the HELP button in the mini-games to read the instructions.
  • You must move your cursor around the scene in order to find all the active areas.
  • Some items are Key Objects. When you click on a Key Object, small circles will appear around it. Look around the scene for the objects that appear in the small circles. Pick up these objects and put them in the center of the Key Object. We have marked these in green in the walkthrough.
  • Blue sparkles indicate a HOS. Pink sparkles indicate something to read. After you click on an area with pink sparkles, read your Journal to see what it said.
  • Most inventory items must be used three times. For example, if you are using a SAW to cut down a Tree, you will probably have to click three times to complete the task.
  • When a hidden object item is written in purple, you will have to do something in the scene to reveal it. For example, if ‘cooked egg’ was written in purple, you would probably have to find an egg in the HOS and drag it to a pan to cook it, then click on the cooked egg to collect it.
  • Many of the mini-games have more than one possible solution. All have a SKIP button at the bottom of the screen. Many have a RESET button in the top right. If you want to use the solution in the walkthrough, first press the RESET button so you have the same starting position we used.
