GENERAL TIPS

  • You can use the CTRL key to switch between first and third person mode. This can be useful in several locations where an item you need to pick up is just off screen. Switch to first person to see what Holmes sees. Descriptions in the following guide may alternate between the first and third persons!
  • In first person mode, once an item you can use – such as a door, note, or something to pick up – is near the center of the screen, an icon will appear over it.
  • In first person mode, use W to move forward, A to move left, B to move right, and S to move back. Use the mouse to look around and the left mouse button when an icon appears.
  • There are several icons in this game, and they will appear automatically when needed: footprints to move, a magnifying glass to examine something, and a hand to use or pick up an item. The basic pointer, Sherlock Holmes’ Pipe, will also move you to a location as a default. Once an icon is where you want it, just click the left mouse button to tell Holmes what to do.
  • Many locations can be accessed by clicking the gold dots on the map screen. This can sometimes be much faster than walking!
  • This game does not autosave. Make sure to save often by using ESC to get to the menu!
