WALKTHROUGH MENU

GENERAL TIPS

  • This is a Hidden Object Game. The mini-games are a variety of puzzles. The story is about Gregory, whose family has kept a secret for many generations, and a mysterious suit of armor.
  • There is no timer.
  • If you make too many incorrect clicks in a row, the cursor will dance away for a few seconds.
  • You can skip any mini-game by clicking on the Skip button once it is fully charged. However, you cannot skip the puzzles that occur during a Hidden Object scene.

The Mysterious Past of Gregory Phoenix

  • In each Chapter, you will unlock anywhere from 3 to 6 locations. You can do these locations in any order.
  • The Chapter will end when you go to the Location Map.
  • You can see the name of the Chapter you are in by looking in the lower left corner of the Choose Player Menu.
  • A few of the items that you will collect are tools that can be used later in the game, like a camera or night-vision goggles. These items will go into your inventory tray at the bottom of the screen.
  • Some scenes include puzzles that you must solve before you can collect an item. You will have to look around the scene for clues. You should also check your inventory for items that might help. You cannot skip these puzzles.
  • Near the end of each Chapter, a mini-game will start. You can skip these mini-games by waiting until the SKIP meter in the upper right corner is fully charged and then clicking on it.
  • The puzzles and mini-games have no instructions—figuring out what to do is part of the challenge.
  • If you encounter an area that sparkles in the scene, click on it. If no puzzle starts automatically, you will probably have to use something from your inventory to continue there.
  • The game will autosave every time you exit. This process can take a minute or more, so although it may seem like the game has frozen on exit, just be patient and it will finish saving and shut down.
  • If you leave the game in the middle of a Hidden Object scene, when you return you will have to start the scene from the beginning with a new Find List.
  • You can use the Options Menu to adjust the volume for the music and the special effects as you like.
  • Several scenes can be panned horizontally or vertically. Look for arrows on the edges of the scene to move slightly in that direction.

The Mysterious Past of Gregory Phoenix

  • When a scene can be panned, sometimes items become hidden behind the Find List. You may need to pan part-way up or down to see them.
  • To return an item to your inventory when you are done with it, right-click.
  • Some Hidden Object scenes also have bonus batteries in them. Collect these for additional hints in the future.
  • The line of blue lights along the bottom of the screen tells you how many hints you have left. Each hint takes about 5 lights.
  • When you click on the hint button, an eyepiece will appear that will show you the exact location of an item. The item it finds will have its name highlighted in the Find List.
  • If you are in a scene that can be panned and you use a hint and the object is in the other part of the scene, you will still see the hint finder mechanism appear. Quickly pan to the other part of the scene to see what it is pointing to.
  • Items that are written in orange on the Find List are Inventory Items that you will collect to use in future scenes. These might be tools or clues to future puzzles. They will go into your Inventory Tray for future use.
  • Your Find List may differ. The batteries, Inventory Items, and puzzles will be the same for all players.
  • There are a few localization issues in the game, where the words chosen don’t exactly match the pictures. Here are some examples: “parabaloid” = satellite dish receiver, “hieroglyphics” = Chinese characters, “missile” = bomb, “breast drill” = hand drill, “diving hat” = diver’s helmet. We have detailed these in the walkthrough.
