TIPS AND TRICKS

* Play the game with paper and pen. Write down every clue and keep a log of every movement and its result for your future reference.

* Remember that carrying certain objects along helps with game play.

* If you become frustrated trying to do a skill and action sequence, push the red button on your controller and go to another room.

* Some skill and action sequences may become easier if you wait a while in the room itself before trying to do the task.

* Just because you use an object to obtain one clue doesn't mean that same object won't help you in future clues or tasks.
