Tips and Tricks for Hidden Expedition: Amazon

[Post New]by bfgErie on Jun 19, 08 1:57 PM
Move On – If you are having trouble locating a particular blue item, the solution for it may be in another room. Go to the map to see if there is another location you can go to and find all the objects in that location first. If one of the objects you locate ends up in your inventory, that may be just what you need to retrieve the blue item on your list.

Hints in Puzzle Rooms – During a mini-game, your hints are unlimited (you’ll notice that the hint button no longer has a number above it). If you get stuck, you can go ahead and use those hints to get you through the room.

Take Your Time – There are is no time limit anywhere in the game, although you do earn extra points for completing each level quickly. Feel free to relax and take in the scenery while you are playing. Also, the punishment for clicking on too many random objects in the scene is only the loss of your cursor for a few seconds. While this is a little annoying, it does mean that you are free to click on an object even if you aren’t 100% sure about it.

Know Your Colors – If you’re having trouble finding a particular object, try looking in areas on the screen where there is a lot of a similar color. For example, if you need to find an orange, try looking for areas where you see a lot of the color orange.

They’re Free, So Feel Free To Use Them – Don’t forget that you can click on the name of any object in your list and get a silhouette of the item. It will help a lot of if you’re having difficulty with a particular item. There is a penalty on your final score whenever you use the silhouettes.

These are just a few suggestions that will help with Hidden Expedition: Amazon. If you have any general tips to share, please post them here.

I see the animals, and the symbols change, but they don't any of them match what's on that crazy wall under or beside the critters, so what?????

Somebody just tell me what to do, please? I HATE JIGSAWS! That's what this is. Very aggravating!

the shapes have something to do with where they are on the circle once you get there...then go back and change each animal to the shape..all the shapes are triangular...none of the others are used. the dragonfly is on top of circle so it is an upside down triangle..then that part of the circle lights up..the snake is on left so that triangle is l> ..the whale is on bottom so it is a regular shape triangle...look at the ones that do not light up and keep going back and changing the triangle

I love this feature, wish it had been on earlier games. Using it doesn't take away from your hints and gives you an idea of the shape and orientation of the item. Thanks for this feature! Played the game for a couple of hours yesterday and found it great, every incarnation of these games improves on the previous ones.

I am stuck in the gears scene. I know I have to go back 3 screens to get the key I had to leave behind earlier. Problem is, nothing I do seems to work. Can anyone tell me how to go back the 3 screens to get the key?

Help!! I can't figure out to get the slingshot (blue item) in the last set of puzzles which is preventing me from getting the ring and heart which are the last 2 blue items (I think?). Also cn't figure out to use the crystal ball that's in my inventory. Can someone please help? I've been stuck on this for days!

Hi rebeltex and welcome!

Could you give me more info about where you are? I vaguely remember this, but I'm not sure where it is. Have you tried going to the All Game Forums (tab at top of page), clicking HE:Amazon and looking through the threads for the answer?

I need help I'm not capable of giving any help. I am not even that far along but at the cave at the end of the third level ( I think) is where I am stuck. There was no blue word but I have a light bulb, a gas can and a bolt cutter. How do I get out of the cave? I have tried many times. I need help!
