The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft - 04/25/19 06:03 PM

Hello, I am having a problem right in the beginning. I can't get Frank to pick up the motorcycle keys before he is caught by Laura. No matter what I do or how fast I am he gets caught. I have sent Joe to the door for a distraction but it doesn't help. What can I do?

If you watch this video on YouTube starting at about 3:25, you will see the player not get the keys successfully and then see him get the keys successfully on the second try.

I don't have much else to offer for this - I remember folks posting about this in the past, people who had been trying for days to get the keys and were not able to manage it. I don't know if this is a time problem, or whether you have to be clicking in exactly the right spot on the staircase or what, but it seems to be problematic for a lot of people.

I also found this old thread on GameBoomers here. It seems you had this problem last year - were you able to get past it then?

Thank you for the video on you tube. No I was not able to get past it and I just stopped trying. Thought I would try again and getting frustrated, I might just pack this one up...LOL. Not worth the stress. I will check out you tube now. Again, thank you very much. It is appreciated. smile

I almost pulled this game out for a replay recently but didn't. Maybe I should.

If I can't get the keys in the next 2 tries I am putting it away. Marian, I just checked our last conversation, can't believe it was over a year ago. LOL

You could always google for save games and se if you can get past it that way. If you manage to get past the key issue make a save a put it in a safe location then you could reuse it.
