help you to solve some parts of the puzzle which are driving you mad. They
will only help you if you have already mastered the basics of the game.
HOPEFULLY THESE HINTS SHOULD GET YOU A BIT FURTHER INTO THE GAME. IF YOU HAVE

Top five handy hints
* Try everything! This games does not follow the rules, so even if it
seems bizarre...go for it. But save as you go.
* Watch carefully when the hand goes red...you know you will have to come
back to do something at a later stage. Even more importantly when the
arrow goes red, you know you have found the entrance to one of the many
rooms...now you just have to get into it.
* The moon will cut plants which you need...the reed in the pond for the
clarinet in the music room, the Yerba de Mate plant in the first garden,
and the lavender plant and the plant you need to paint with in the second
* You need to keep going back to the rooms, they all interact with each
other. Items from one room will only be relevant in another room etc.
* Various books in the library shelves will change when you have either a
liquid, a powder, an insect or a leaf. Depending on what sort of item, you
have the description will change eg in the liquids book there are
descriptions for water, wine, lavender water etc. You need to refer to
these books for clues.
THE FOLLOWING HINTS ARE NOT A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF WHAT YOU MUST DO IN EVERY
ROOM, BUT THEY WILL HELP TO GET YOU OVER SOME OF THE HARDER PARTS:
The Front of the House (first scene)
1. Put the sun on the large plant to the right of the screen, then water the
flower with water in the bottle, then put the sun on again, then you get a
blackberry. Use the hand to pick it. If you leave it a minute, you will get a
fly, use the net to collect it. This fly goes in the spiderТs web. When place
the fly in the spiderТs web, you will need to get the spider across to the fly
by taking a maze-like path through. Basically click the hand on any join that
does not have a water droplet on it. THIS SOLVES THE NATURE PUZZLE
2. Eventually you will be able to go into another СroomТ above the chimney.
This happens a fair way into the game.
1. Collect the onion for later use in OllyТs bathroom
2. Note the containers of salt and sugar. You use the salt cellar from the
kitchen and fill it with either of these. If you want to empty the salt
cellar, just click on it over the meat.
Mrs SТs Bedroom
1. Use the empty salt cellar from the kitchen to collect sleeping powder from
the cup with the zzzТs on it. Put this in Mrs SТs glass in the library, along
with some wine from the bottle below her in the library (place hand on wine
bottle, when it turns into a fist, keeping your finger on the mouse button
take it up to the glass, then release). This will allow you to go from the
first garden room to the second.
2. L:ater in the game, you can eventually use the arrow to go in the wine
glass (collect the icecube, put it in the beaker in the lab, and it will turn
into one of the pieces of paper you need to solve the game)
3. You can go inside her mouth, by placing the hand near her mouth then using
the arrow. Once inside her mouth collect the tooth from the lower right hand
side, this will start the generator in OllyТs bathroom (which is through the
1. The bottle from the kitchen is essential, collect it by using the hand on
the top of the bottle, then when the hand closes move it over to Mrs S and
release. (Remember this technique as you will need it to milk the cow and at
various other times of the game) You will now be able to pick up the bottle.
You can fill it with different liquids throughout the game (eg: wine, milk,
water, vinegar, lavender water) and empty it into either the pond or OllyТs
2. Put milk into the butter urn which is hanging over the stove. Then use the
knife to collect it and spread it on the toast.
3. To make blackberry jam, you need to collect three blackberryТs all at
once. Once you have collected your first blackberry from the front of the
house, take it to the library and place it in the mouse hole. Then use the
hand to collect the mouse, put the mouse back in the hole. Go and get another
blackberry and repeat the procedure. Then do the whole thing one more time.
Once youТve placed three blackberries in the hole, go in and collect them
using the hand. Now put them in the saucepan and youТre on your way to making
The Dining Room
1. The hints above on making toast, butter and blackberry jam will give you
one part of the menu.
2. To make the Royal Yerba De Mate, you add the boiled water to the teapot,
then put in the leaf, then put the hand on the handle to pour into the cup.
Then add milk and sugar.
3. Making the cheese sauce is easy...get the cheese from the mouse hole add
to the saucepan in kitchen, throw in milk and salt from the pantry.
4. Now you just need the eel. Get the fly from the kiss room (see below), put
on the meat in the pantry, collect the maggot, get Olly to blow on it in the
hall, feed it to the large fish in the pond, put the fish on the side of the
pond, feed it to the eel, then cook the eel on the inside of the fireplace.
(NOW YOU SHOULD HAVE SOLVED THE FOOD PART OF THE PUZZLE)
1. Collect the pig shaped sponge give it to Olly in the first garden. Use the
empty bottle over the generator sign in OllyТs bathroom and it fills with oil.
Take it to the lab, put in beaker, add coins from pond, let boil down to blue
powder. Let boil until it turns into white powder. Collect with salt shaker,
take to PollyannaТs bathroom and release. The window should clear. Go to
OllyТs bathroom, collect the love note and give it to Pollyanna in her bath.
1. Collect an onion from the jar in the Pantry and feed it to Olly. Then go
to his rear end with hand and you will collect a wind icon (pretty sick!!)
This icon will play the instruments in the music room. You also need to use it
to get the fire going in the drawing room (first place the hand on the bucket
near the fire, then light it with the candle, then use the wind. The fire will
toast the bread)
2. Make sure you collect the toothbrush, this is also a paint brush.
3. Use the hairnet from Mrs SТs bedroom (use the hand above her hair to get
it), near the cactus to collect a fly.
The Music Room
1. Use the moon to cut a reed in the pond, this goes in the clarinet.
2. Get the mouse from the library hole, place on shelf in music room. Get
butter on knife, put it on the trumpet. Use the wind to play the tuba, a cat
pops out, quickly take the wind to the trumpet and play again, you should be
able to catch the cat. Now pick up the cat with the hand and take it to the
cello. Place it across where the strings you should be. (THANKS TO BONNIE IN
CANADA SOLVED THIS PART OF THE PUZZLE FOR US)
1. Put the fly from the bathroom into the pestle. Then pick up the red paint
with the toothbrush...take it to the drawing room and you will have one of the
colours you need. To get the yellow colour take the stick from the second
garden, put it on the tree at the front of the house, you will get a nut which
you put in the pestle. The third colour can be obtained using the leaf cut
using the moon on the plant to the right of the second garden. (THIS SOLVES
THE COLOUR PART OF THE PUZZLE)
2. To get the burner started, use the hand on the switch over on the far left
of the screen. Then put the candle above the burner, and you should get a
flame. The beaker will then heat water (for Yerba De Mate in the dining room)
and also to melt the icecube from the wine glass.
The Drawing Room
1. See hints for the lab to solve this part of the puzzle.
2. You need to light the candle in this room to light up the cellar and the
spider room. Just collect the match from the kitchen, strike it against the
box, and put the lighted match to the candle.
3. You can go into the fireplace using the arrow. When you have solved all
five puzzles, you will be able to go into a room through the star at the top
of the chimney.
4. Later on in the game, after you have got into the wine glass, you can go
into the small painting on the wall.
The Second Garden
1. Use the moon to get the lavender leaf from the plant to the left, then
drop the leaf to PollyannaТs bath. Fill the bottle with the water and give it
to Olly in his bathroom. Then go back to PollyannaТs bathroom to collect the
note, then give it to Olly in his bathroom.
2. When you have all the clothes in the second garden, you can enter the kiss
and SOLVE THE LOVE PART OF THE PUZZLE. Just put the arrow on the second large
red flower from the right. If you wait til the fly is on this flower then
click the arrow, when you go into the kiss room, you will be able to collect
the third fly, which you place on the meat in the pantry.
1. Put the arrow above the chimney at the front of the house. Drag from one
star to another on the left hand side of the screen...this takes a bit of
practice, but eventually you will form a saucepan sort of shape. You will now
be able to go into the wine glass in Mrs SТs bedroom, the painting in the
drawing room. Then use the arrow on the bright star to the right of the
screen, near the right eye, this will take you into another room. We have not
worked out the secret to this room, except if you place some sugar in the
middle you get sweets...sounds weird but try it and see.
IMPORTANT: Throughout the game you collect six pages which you will need to
solve the game. We wonТt tell you where they all are as that would ruin the
challenge, but you should burn them in the fireplace as you go.
