I am stuck here too. The stratergy guide does not help here at all, I have the grappling hook and everything else I have found but nothing I have helps. If you find the answer, please tell me.

If you purchase the game, they have a strategy button that IS the walkthrough. I have found that it isn't exactly right, but it is a big help. Good luck

Where are the grappling hook and rope? Also, i think i didn't take everything out of the box (on the cliff overlooking the crewed ship) that i could have. Is there some way to get the box to re-open?

my hourglass broke and now I can't get into door D. Also the dials are stuck on the diving suit and I can't move them. Is there a trick to do this?

I really think it's a technical glitch. Please--any help would be appreciated.

To get rid of the sailor in the crow's nest you can use the sling shot if you have it. it lines up with the crows nest

Hi SzhalimarM,

Don't forget to use your Collector's Edition built-in Strategy Guide whenever you get stuck. Or, if you're playing the standard version of this game, here's a link to our walkthrough:

Hidden Expedition: The Uncharted Islands Walkthrough

You can click HERE to see where the flashlight is located. (It's next to the letter S.)

Hope this helps!

When will this game be released for Mac users? We have been waiting quite a while for it.

I cannot get the crate on the cliff to open, and can't progress, I have looked at the strategy guide and there doesn't seem to be anything I need to do to get that to happen - help please.

After playing probably 30 - 40 Big FIsh games as a member (never did receive my fish, BTW)... I do think that this game is the worst I have ever played on several fronts. To even have a chance of finding hidden objects you need to crank up the brightness and contrast on your computer to the max, which, if it is a laptop and you happen to be on the road, is a power consuming mistake.

I also found, for the first time in many years, that the program is "buggy" in that it "forget's" stuff you have done, does not (in one puzzle in particular in which you need to find the matchstick (which I did, but when I needed it where was it?... so I could compete the puzzle to burn the paper??). For some reason, even resorting to the Strategy Guide (which typically refuse to do) there was no way to find and link the matchstick with the matchbox and burn the paper. How frustrating is that?

BTW... the game is so dark, not in a good, useful or fun way, but it seems that the concept of this game is to punish the player to make them have to fight the graphics (especially if they are 60 years old, with glasses with still 20-20 in the vision department). It seems Big Fish games in the last year or so has tended to use graphics which are very dark in nature... and I try to avoid those types of Hidden Object games if I can... but then there seems to be fewer and fewer to chose from.

Secondly, this game also seems to have no sensible logic to it... pieces bounce around and you collect things (like an extended hook)... but can't use it to grab something that needs an arm extension. What is with that? Maybe I am trying too hard to see what the heck is in the scene that I need to find or utilize that I am now blind and I am missing something important. Gosh, this game really stinks. If it was the first one I ever played five or so years ago I would never have become a member or spent my $6.99 a month, using my credits or not!

What I have enjoyed over the years is the quality control of these games and the unique ability to weave a story line with a set of choices where problems could be solved which use common sense, some smarts and intuitive reasoning. This game however, at least for me, fails miserably.

Regarding this game I wish I could get my money back as I refuse to spend another minute wasting my time playing it.

If it is not perfectly in the center, you can' enter the code for the helmet. I skipped the puzzle which lined them up perfectly, after that I could move the dials to enter A43.

Victory!


I had the same problem, today. After many attempts I finally Skipped the Puzzle and used the information to solve the 2nd problem from the 'Walkthrough' info. This is the first puzzle I've skipped in the game. So many others are having difficulty with this that it should be reported to Techs.
Thanks!! goldfish23
