INTRODUCTION

General Tips

  • There are nine chapters in this game, all with varying amounts of scenes that you need to visit.
  • There is no timer in the game.
  • You can toggle between rooms by clicking on the pictures that are located in the lower left side of the scene. Each picture you hover over will have the name of that particular scene.
  • Some of the pictures will be locked and can only be unlocked once other actions have been performed.
  • At the end of most Hidden Object searches, you will have a Key Item go into your inventory in the bottom left side of the page. Use these Key Items to unlock certain scenes or to use in puzzles.
  • If you get stuck in the game, you can click on the butterfly icon in the top left corner to use a hint. The butterfly will fly to show you one of the items on your list.
  • The hints can also show you where your next location will be. Click on the hint, and the butterfly may fly towards one of the pictures in the lower left side. The hint can also show you an item, or door that you need to investigate.
  • The hints are unlimited but you do have to wait for them to recharge before you can use them again. They do not take that long to recharge, so there isn’t that much waiting time between each use.
  • If you click randomly in the scene, it will disable your cursor for a few seconds. You will be able to start using the cursor again once it ceases to float around the scene.
  • When you replay the game under the same profile, it gives you new objects to look for. It also gives you alternate fragmented pieces to look for when you open the red tarot cards.

Cursors

  • Your cursor can change shapes when you pass it over an area that you need to interact with in a scene.
  • Each cursor has a different meaning in the game.
  • Arrows – The arrows allow you to move between scenes without having to use the pictures in the lower left side of the scene.
  • Gears – When you see two silver gears appear in the scene, it means that you need to solve a puzzle or use one of your Key Items on that item.
  • Magnifying Glass – The magnifying glass allows you to look at an item from a closer point of view, like a drawer or inside a fridge.

Tarot Cards

The Tarot Card Mystery

  • In order to find some of the objects in the scene, you have to find the tarot cards in the scene; some are hidden, others are in plain view.
  • Whatever tarot cards are available in a scene will be shown to you on the left side of the page. The cards that are visible to the naked eye will be shown in full color.
  • The tarot cards that are hidden in that scene will have an eye icon in their upper right corners. To find the hidden cards in a scene you have to use a tool from your inventory.
  • If you find more than one card at a time, they will be stacked on top of each other on the left side of the page. If you click on a hint while several cards are open, the hint will show you an item from the card that is on top of the pile.
  • Each colored tarot card has a different way to show you how the items need to be found. Please read below for a brief description of each.
  • Blue Tarot Cards – will show you a list of items that you need to find in that scene.
  • Green Tarot Cards –will show you silhouettes of the items that you need to find in the scene.
  • Red Tarot Cards – will show you a picture of the item you need to look for. The catch is that you have to find the fragmented pieces of that item.

  • You can toggle between which items you want to look for in the red cards. Click on the desired icon at the bottom of the red card to switch between items.
