This is kind of lame but may help:

General Tips
Chapter 1 - Main Street
Chapter 2 - The Puppet Shop
Chapter 3 - The Graveyard
Chapter 4 - Through the Trapdoor
Chapter 4 - The Puppet Thief’s Lair

General Tips
· This walkthrough is meant to be used as a guide to assist in solving mini-puzzles and acquiring all items in order to complete the game. You may explore locations in the order you wish, this walkthrough is written to take the most direct route to the game’s finish.
· Inventory objects will be written in CAPITALS and highlighted in yellow in the screenshots. The walkthrough will state, “Use the inventory item on the blah blah,” because it assumes you have the item. If you don’t have the item, on your keyboard, press CTRL+F (at the same time). In the text box, type the name of the item you are looking for and press ENTER. This will scan this page for the appearance of that word.
· Play the tutorial! It will explain gameplay elements. The tutorial is available in two difficulty modes.
· Often you need to perform an action (i.e., place or collect an inventory item) in order for the game to progress. Before assuming the game has a glitch, go through your inventory and see if you can place any of your items anywhere or look for an item to pick up, switch to flip, etc.
· The Menu button at the bottom left of the screen gives access to the options screen and can bring you back to the main menu.
· Items collected throughout the game go into your inventory, located at the bottom of your screen.
· Closing a window – To close the zoom-in windows, click Close. Tip: If you can zoom in on the area again, you likely haven’t found everything you needed to find.

Difficulty Modes
· There are three difficulty modes.
· Casual mode has faster filling Hint and Skip meters, and sparkles (actually more like a mist) for active areas.
· Advanced mode has slower filling Hint and Skip meters, and no sparkles for active areas.
· Custom mode allows you to select longer waits for hints and eliminate skipping completely, or one or the other but not both, and you can choose the tutorial or hide it, and choose sparkles or no sparkles.
· The tutorial is offered in Casual and Custom modes, but not in advanced.
· You CAN change the difficulty setting during the game.

· The default cursor looks like an arrow.
· A magnifying glass indicates you can inspect the area more closely or perform an action.

· A grabbing hand indicates you can pick up an item to add to your inventory.
· A pulsing arrow indicates you can move in that direction.
· Move your cursor over every aspect of a scene and watch for it to change, it’s the only way to find everything, especially if playing in Advanced or Custom mode.
