Tips and Tricks for Cate West: The Velvet Keys

[Post New]by bfgBering on Apr 27, 09 9:51 AM
Hints – You have unlimited hints, and they recharge pretty fast. Don’t be afraid to use them!

Color Spectrum – Look for items in areas that are close in color to what the item’s likely color is, for example look in a yellow area for bananas. This may help you find the trickier items.

Travel – If you are having trouble finding the last few items in a location, go back to the city map and try another location for a while. Come back to the spot that’s giving you trouble later with fresh eyes!

These are just a few ideas to help you out while playing Cate West: The Velvet Keys. Feel free to add your own!

To get maximum points, find more than one object and then click them all in a row. You get extra points for fast clicking!

Please help me! I have been playing this game with ease until now. I am at a part where you have to construct these items finding the matching parts from the top and bottom scenes. I have found them all but the lantern. I wish I could remember what chapter I am on but must be near the end somewhere. I feel so stupid. Does anyone know where I am and can maybe help? I went to the walkthough and it does show a pic of all the many items circled but you sure can't make out what they are. THanks in advance.

puppycake...

Is this in Chapter 5 Part 4? If so...

Lantern piece in the upper picture is on the chair with fabric on it. In the lower picture it's on the left side of the dashboard.

I need help with Chapter 9, the last slider puzzle. I've never been any good at these "sliding to make a picture" puzzles. Can you give me a spoiler please? I hate to skip it and lose the points.
Thank you

I am having difficulties in solving one of the puzzles having to do with circuitry--specifically the ones located in Chapters 9 and 11. Any suggestions or advice will be appreciated.

I cannot locate any spoilers to help solve the two of the 3 "Key Chamber" puzzles. I can get the one in Chapter 4, but just cannot do the ones at the end of Chapters 9 and 11.
Does anyone have an easy solution?

Reply to prpldva. First, thank you for replying -- however the solutions to the Key Chamber puzzle are NOT in the walk through. I wish they were. It shows a picture, but how to get the squares in the right places are beyond me.

I sound like a broken record, but I really need help in doing 3 of the ossuary puzzles in chapters 4, 9 and 11. I have read the walkthrough - it does show a picture but does not explain how it is done. Does anyone have an easy solution. Greatly appreciate any help in this
