INTRODUCTION

General Tips

  • There is a good variety of puzzles in the game, but you cannot skip them. Some of the puzzle solutions are random. If you get stuck in a puzzle, you can look for the solution in the walkthrough.
  • The game does not have a timer, so you do not have to worry about any time constraints.
  • You cannot use the hints system when you are in a puzzle scene. Just read the instructions at the beginning of each level to know what you have to do.
  • Your cursor will spin around wildly if you click randomly in the scene.
  • Each time you play the game, you will be given new items to look for. However, the puzzles will mostly be the same each time, but some of the final solutions may vary.

Your Trunk

  • Your trunk is located in the lower left side of the scene. It stores all of your inventory items.
  • To access the trunk, simply click on the icon in the lower left side. Once the trunk opens, you can look at all the items that are stored in there.
  • To close the trunk, simply click on any part of it and you will be returned to the scene you were working on.
  • The items in your trunk will only be used during the puzzle scenes; you will never need to use them in any of the Hidden Object searches.
  • While using your items during a puzzle scene, not all of the items in the trunk will need to be used. The game will automatically make available whatever you need for a particular puzzle.

Compass Hints/ Diamonds

  • You will find a compass in the very first scene you encounter in this game. Use the compass to help you locate hidden items in a scene.
  • You have unlimited hints with the compass, but you must wait for it to recharge before you can use it again.
  • Click on the compass when it is recharged, and it will form a circle around an item in the scene.
  • Since the circle is rather large, make sure that you click in the center of the circle to find the item you’re looking for.
  • The item the compass shows you is random, there’s no way to choose the item you need help locating.
  • If you want the hints to recharge faster, click on the diamonds that are scattered around the scene.
  • The diamonds also earn you extra points each time you find them.
  • There are plenty of diamonds throughout each scene. Look carefully around for them so you can increase your score in the game.
  • Your compass will not be activated during any of the puzzles.

Walkthrough

  • The walkthrough will give you the solutions, and explanations, for all the puzzles in the game.
  • Please keep in mind that some of the puzzle solutions are random. We’ve included alternate solutions whenever possible.
  • If you get stuck on a puzzle and you want to reset it, exit out of the game and you will start at the beginning of that puzzle. This will help you if you want to use one of the solutions in the walkthrough.
  • In the Hidden Object scenes, we’ve circled all the items that came up for us during play. Your results may vary.
