Unlimited hints are available: Whenever you need more hints, click the little circle with ?+ below the hint button in lower right of screen. This opens a scene that contains 10 hidden ? Find all 10 and receive 2 hints. You can replay these scenes as many times as you need hints. The ? locations don't change when you replay the scenes. If you get stuck and can't find all 10, go back to your game location and request more hints to get a different scene.

Be sure the red flag appears on the map for each location you complete. If you don't get a red flag, you haven't found all the jewels at that location. You will need all the jewels to complete the amulets in the box. If you don't have the amulets, the final scene with the dragons won't unlock. Click once on the gold circle that is missing a red flag and a box pops up listing the name of the location, how many puzzles remain to be solved and how many jewels remain to be found.

There are 12 Levels in the game. Some Levels have two map locations and there are often more than one scene within a location. You can use the EXIT hot spots to move between scenes without going to the map. As the game gets more difficult, you will have to switch locations several times to find pieces. On the description of each level, I've listed the artifacts to assemble. Find the pieces and assemble all the artifacts you can first. Using a hint will verify that you've completed all the artifacts that are available without further action. (Make sure you've found all the ? and jewels in that scene or you will spend a hint just to find a jewel.)

You're most welcome. I'm just trying to repay Gameboomers for all the help you've given me.

I think I should send MaG a dozen roses. Preparing directions for a casual game was hard enough - I can't even imagine creating a walkthrough for an adventure game. Her walkthroughs are awesome.

I would like to print these directions, but my printer only prints down to "Be sure the red flag....." and then it prints the rest of the thread but not the directions. Is there a way to print this part of the thread?

Thanks for help,
and have you tried right click and highlight all you want copy,
then open word and print, if there is only a small square, click on that and click on 'text only'.

it works for me.


Keep going, the feeling great at the end.

You can put the horn on, but if the plate isn't underneath it, the hidden piece falls off the bottom of the screen. Fortunately, all you have to do is place the plate on the proper place and click the horn again and the hidden piece drops again.

Yes it does. I thought I had to catch it as it fell and was getting a little frustrated. Then I put the plate on and voila, much easier. puppy

Can someone tell me how to put the stone piece back on at the Mayan temple? I cut the branch but for the life of me I can't get the stone piece to stay on where I cleared the place for it.
Thanks.

welcome to Gameboomers

Did you get the statue to sneeze so you can get the last piece of stone?

If you have, have you checked Margies walkthrough to see if you have missed anything?

Yep, the statue sneezed and I believe I have done everything in the walkthru but I will go check again. I"m pretty exact when I play games...but I hate using the walkthrus if I don't need them.
I'll check again, but I'm sure I've done everything she said.
Thanks..

edit: I did everything... so I don't know why it's not working.

Unfortunately saved games do not work in these or I'd have you send me yours and I'd see if I can get you unstuck. Msaybe someone else can offer another suggestion.

Hang on black4rose and I'll load the game. I've been wanting to play it again anyway.

OK, I think I understand the problem. You need to practice locating 'hot spots'. This game is loaded with 'hot spots' and you have to take note of them when you move your cursor around the scenes because they are essential in figuring out where the artifacts you assemble are to be used. The description that pops up when you find a hot spot usually gives you a clue as to the artifact to use.

For example, you have assembled a knife which then moves from the bottom of the screen (assembly area) to the right side (artifact inventory area). There is a hot spot on the branch at the top of the screen which says "this branch is loose". When you cut the branch with the knife it clears a spot at the top of the stone. The stone pillar is another hot spot which says "this stone slab used to be higher." If you tickled the statue head's nose with the branch, he sneezed and revealed the tiny tip piece that was missing for the final artifact. Grab the tiny piece from his lower lip which completes the final artifact and sends it from the bottom of the screen to the right side.

By now you should have assembled the stone tablet that is divided into 9 symbols. If you placed it on the hot spot on the stone slab and clicked it, a 'calculator' like puzzle should have appeared. It needs you to press the proper 3 symbols in order.

Since the "stone slab used to be higher" you need to put the triangular shaped stone artifact on top of that hot spot. Notice the sunray like area on top of the stone slab? Click on the triangular shaped stone in your artifact inventory and then click on the sunrays. The artifact will attach to the top of the stone slab, the laser rays will reflect off the mirror and start a fire in the temple in the background of the scene. The smoke from the fire reveals the 3 symbols you need to solve the 'calculator' puzzle.

This is only the first level - it's a chance to practice assembling artifacts, looking for hot spots and identifying puzzles. The game gets much harder the further you proceed. In the next levels you will have to travel back and forth from scene to scene since many of the artifacts are missing pieces which have to be unlocked. Clues to solving puzzles are also locked and you have to figure out how to complete artifacts and use them to obtain the information for solving puzzles. Any time a hot spot lights up or reveals a written description, it's a clue that you need to do something there.

Good Luck. It's an awesome game but just be aware that you have to move back and forth from scene to scene OFTEN and check everywhere for hot spots.

Most welcome, as always.

Hope you enjoy the game blackrose. If you can master the tricks in Magic Encyclopedia and enjoy the running around, try Return to Ravenhearst next. It's awesome too.

Thank you Scarlet DRagon... I appreciate it. I already have and played Return to Ravenhearst. It was fun. I usually don't have a problem with the games.. and running around is ok too. So thanks again.

You're very welcome blackrose. Glad you are unstuck. Have you tried the Azada games and Escape the Museum?

Thanks so much for the game walkthrough, ScarletDragon. Magic Encyclopedia is on my "to buy" list, and your help will be invaluable, I feel sure. smile
