If I remember - short trip to the game and I didn't write it down. blush

Hero mentioned the restaurant only after opening the crab crate and looking at the crabs. He screeches that they are FAKE! Then hero talks about checking the restaurants - not the barnacle cleaner. wave

Finally got the 2 restaurants to show up on that map - been to both - can't figure out what to do - need a keycard for the gate/door, where do I look for it? Can't do anything to help Jim with his rats - what now? I have tried to access the HINTS/TIPS feature and nothing happens, it just sits there - any ideas?
Love, Betty Lou

Restaurant 1 - Make a keycard using the knife and poster that is on the right side of the gate.

Gotta go! laugh

Betty Lou, your ID card also needs a fingerprint. Maybe something on the dock is a source of ink. "Look" at the fingerprint book for step by step instructions.

I had trouble getting the ink, and had to try everything in my inventory, and finally "scared" some up. If you need more hints let me know.

OK. Used ID card with fake picture from poster and Arthur's fingerprint to get into Cafe. Got cheese and hald tin cans. talked to chef & waitress. got kidnapped by thug and talked to Boss. trapped rat with cheese & crab. talked to Crab diner guy he needs to hire someone to dispose of his rats. I haven't a clue what to do now so can't get diner reopened. HELP please. Cute game. Takes an awful long time to open it so it can be played. too bad have to start over again as there is no save feature. And cannot access their hint/tip file. Thanks
Also...can't this game be offered in our Free Games Galore? Have to keep the topic moved up in Discussion so as to get back to it. Cannot "bookmark" it.
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou,

The game is at Free Games Galore as well as other new games Dee has picked up.

I'll try to open it later since I didn't play the game long enough. smile

Betty Lou, have you found the business card to give the guy who has the rat problem? Try moving a crate around outside the kitchen of the restaurant where the guy is listening to the victrola.

Betty Lou, you can download the game to your harddrive so you don't alway have to be on the internet to play.

Doreen has a good clue for you. Then when Jim calls for help, you have to go back to the "Boss" and try to overhear the phone conversation. You might have to combine a couple of inventory items to make a new gizmo.

Of course, MaG, BUT I don't melt in the rain....haha
Doreen, thanks for the help.
SuMac, thanks I think I will. Wish I could access their Hint/Tip file but nothing happens when I click on it. Oh well.
Love, Betty Lou

The hint file didn't work for me either Betty Lou. Don't know why they have it. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

Thanks MaG. Will check my email in a bit. Have discovered why I cannot access their Hints/Tips = BECAUSE THERE AREN'T ANY - when you/I click on the box in lower right hand corner of his webpage re the game a message appears above it in a large blank space on the right asking that anyone who has written complete hints/tips or a walkthrough please to contact him and gives his email address....it's a case of that old saying, "when in doubt, read the manual"! but I did not even think to look up there for something like that, just expected a reaction of some kind to my clicking on his link....I know, Betty Lou you Must Pay Attention! Duh duh laugh
At least now that I have downloaded it I can just minimize and not have to quit and start over every time....thanks for the tip.
Love, Betty Lou

Wow. I just d/led and played this game. Was a bit stuck at the beginning but the hint about the knife and book helped a lot. Some of the puzzles were a bit contrived but once you got the idea that, when stuck, just try every inventory item on everything you can see it fell together pretty quickly. Who knew crabs were such a vital piece of a detective's armoury?

Very quirky too in a not-too-obvious way. My favourite was the revelation when you try to shoot the boss at the end...
