Secret Missions: Mata Hari and the Kaiser's Submarines ™ Walkthrough - First Hour

[Post New]by bfgAegean on Dec 12, 08 9:02 AM
Hi everyone! Below you will find instructions for how to play and a walkthrough of the first hour of Secret Missions: Mata Hari and the Kaiser's Submarines ™. It includes the first three missions of the game, and will hopefully get you going for the rest of the adventure.

Happy gaming!

____________________

Instructions:

In this game, you play as Mata Hari, a dancer who doubles as a spy for France during World War I. Secret Missions: Mata Hari and the Kaiser’s Submarines ™ is a mix between Hidden Object gameplay as well as puzzle solving that will have you assisting Mata Hari as she embarks on dangerous and secretive missions for France. Before you begin the game you will need to create a profile, and then choose whether to play the game on Easy Mode or Hard Mode. The difference between these is that Easy Mode will give you a good deal more hints throughout the game as to how you should go about solving puzzles. Which you choose is up to you. Your missions will involve searching a location for objects that will be needed later on to solve a puzzle to get you to your objective. Keep in mind that you may not be able to find certain objects until you fulfill a previous objective. By clicking on items in your list on the screen, you will add them to your inventory for later use. Each level you complete is timed, but there is no timer with which you have to compete against to complete a level. You’ll simply be told your overall time for the mission and the score you earned at the end of each. If at any time you forget what you are supposed to be doing, just click on the Objectives button at the button left corner of the screen, and if you’d like to pause the game simply click the Main Menu button at the top. Good luck!

Mission 1 – Start of the Career

Starting in Mata Hari’s bedroom in the Excelsior Hotel, follow along with her instructions as she prepares for her first mission. First, open up the hidden drawer in the bookshelf to retrieve a letter from Captain G. Ladoux. After doing so, open up your contacts book and read through Captain Ladoux’s profile. Once you’ve done that, look in your dresser for an appropriate outfit to meet Captain Ladoux in. When choosing what parts of your outfit to wear, note that a circle will appear around your target’s portrait when you’ve chosen the correct item. Remember, if you ever forget what style of dress your target prefers, click on their portrait to review their profile. Captain Ladoux prefers “neat but modest attire.” Selecting the blue hat, blue dress, and parasol will complete your outfit.

After meeting with Captain Ladoux, you will learn of your first mission to locate a secret map detailing plans for a secret German U-boat base. You have just completed Mission 1.

Mission 2 – Encryption Machine

Again, you will start this mission in your hotel room. Following the same steps as in the first mission, obtain your mission briefing from the secret container in your bookshelf. Once you’ve done so, you will find yourself in the French Intelligence Office. This is where you’ll play your first Hidden Object screen. After searching the two different screens of the office, and locating all the objects on your list, you’ll be prompted to repair the sparking wires above the lockbox. First, affix the spare bit of wire to the sparking wires, and then secure it with the electrical tape. Once you’ve done so, a green light will come on. Before doing anything else here, take a look at the shelf next to the lockbox. Clicking on the shelf will bring up a mini-game. The goal is to arrange all the color coded files on their appropriate shelves. Taking your yellow file on the left side of the screen, replace it with the file on the yellow shelf. Continue swapping colored files until all the files are in the proper place. Once you’ve finished this puzzle, you will receive a punch card pattern.

From here, you will have all the pieces you need to get into the lockbox. Take the punch card, and the punch tool, and click them on the sparkling puzzle piece in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Once you enter the puzzle, you’ll need to punch in the pattern you were given when you completed the colored file puzzle. If you don’t remember it, you can exit out of the puzzle and double-click on the file to look at it. After completing the card, place it in the slot below the green light on the lockbox to receive the encryption machine.

Upon returning to your room, check your hidden messages again. Captain Ladoux wishes you to write him of your progress using the encryption machine. In order to use the encryption machine you’ll have to connect the wires on the left hand side of the screen by connecting the rotors in the middle. In order to do this, you must first click on one of the rotors. After that, you have to connect all the rotors together in the middle. Keep in mind that you can only connect rotors by using a straight line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You will complete Mission 2 once you’ve completed the puzzle and contacted Captain Ladoux.

Mission 3 – First Suspect

Begin Mission 3 by clicking on the decoding machine in the hidden section of the book shelf. To decode this note, you’ll need to determine the correct amount of each color on the left to match the color and image on the right. Using the up and down buttons for each color, you can add or subtract the amount of color for each. Once you think you have the correct combination, click the Confirm button, and you’ll be told how many colors are correct and which need more or less color. Once you complete the message, you’ll learn of a Major John Williams, who is suspected of sharing intelligence. Some green lights were seen coming from the Ritz London, and you need to see if Williams is connected. Before you read his profile, take a moment to look at the present Captain Ladoux gave you for completing your previous mission. After you’ve read his profile, you’ll need to visit his home to learn more about him in order to seduce him.

Upon arriving at Major Williams’ home, begin looking for the items on your list. Remember that you can visit different parts of his house by clicking on the arrow at the side of the screen. You’ll soon learn that Major Williams is a fan of smoking pipes. Once you’ve found four of his pipes lying around his home, click on the pipe box near the window in the room you arrived in to begin a puzzle. Here, you’ll need to arrange his pipes correctly. Note that each pipe has a certain number of gold dots on it. Arrange the pipes so that the each pipe is next to its twin based on their number of dots. Completing this puzzle will gain you access to the hookah pipe in the cupboard below. Collecting the hookah, along with the other objects on the list will give you enough information on Major Williams to continue.
