Look for items that are hidden behind other objects. When you are looking
for certain objects all you may see is just a small piece of the item. For
example, if you're looking for a globe, you may only see the bottom half of
the globe. For a violin you will only see the top and the bottom of the
violin, while the middle part is blocked by a bigger object.
- Some items may be hidden
totally under something else and until you find that first piece, you
will not be able to see it. In stage 16, for example, the goal is to
find a phone. The phone will be the last object that you will be asked
to find and it will not appear on the screen until you find the hat
first. Once you've been asked to find the hat and you click on it, the
phone will appear underneath it. That happens throughout the game, so
pay close attention to what they are asking for at the beginning of some
levels That particular object will always be the last thing to appear on
the list of things to search for.
- When you visit a room a
second time, you'll notice that the items in it have moved around to
different places. If you run out of time and can't finish that
particular scene, you will be able to restart it and the items and clues
will remain the same, allowing you to memorize their locations to help
you beat the time limit until you get them right.
- Hints are few and far
between, so you have to decide when is the best time to use them. Once
you use your first hint, it takes approximately 80 seconds for it to
recharge so that you can use another one. If you have a lot of things to
find and you have a limited amount of time in which to find it in, it
may be best to use the hint at the very beginning. When you use the hint
at the beginning, it will save you the time to look for at least one
item and it will also give the hint a chance to recharge so that it may
be ready for you when you start finding items at a slower pace.
- Some items that you look
for could have a double meaning. For example a spade could be a
gardening tool or the symbol on a playing card, a bat could be a
baseball bat or the animal. There are also a few words that some people
may not be familiar with. A jerrican is a container that stores
gasoline, a spanner is a crescent wrench and a dictaphone is a small
- When you have to find the
items by looking for their silhouettes, you have to remember that the
items may not be in the same position that they are shown in. It may ask
you for a flower vase and in the silhouette it may be vertical but in
actuality it is laying horizontally in the scene. Some items appear
rather largely in the silhouette and when you look for it, it will be
very tiny on the screen.
- Thin items like pencils,
wrenches, pens and cigarettes are harder to find. Most of the time they
will be embedded in the outline of something else. Look for these types
of items to be on the edge of a desk, inside an open book or on the side
of a picture frame. Items like bananas can be placed on some kind of
yellow background so that it blends really well thus making it harder to
see. Black items like binoculars and tea kettles will most likely be
against some kind of dark background.
- In the puzzles that you
have to find matching pairs of something, like fruits, gems or
timepieces, you have to find the same items and match them up. If you've
been asked to "find the pairs of fruits", look for two oranges
that are located in different parts of the room and click each one until
they are highlighted. When both correct pieces have been highlighted
they will disappear. If you don't match the correct pieces, you can
click an item twice and it will no longer be highlighted. The
"tips" button will help you find the matching pieces by
highlight both pieces that are needed. When you are asked to find the
timepieces, hourglasses, wristwatches and clocks are all included in
- In the "Find the
differences" puzzles, look for some of the less obvious things. Of
course, you will be looking for things that are in one place and not the
other but also look for slight differences as well. Some things that you
are looking for could be something as small as something being painted a
different color, or a line that is slightly shorter than another or
simply a button that might be missing from a drawer.
- There are a variety of
letters and papers that you have to flip the squares around in order to
piece it back together. Start with the outer edges first, you should see
a dark outline on some of the squares that represents the edge of the
paper. Line those up all around the edges and then work your way to the
middle. Once you have all the edges in place, start rotating the pieces
in the middle from left to right, top to bottom etc. Some items may
already be in the right place and don't need to be moved. If you want to
check it real quick, just click your mouse right and then left, if a
"glimmer" appear, then you know that the item is in the
correct position so then you can move on to the next square quickly.
