Hi CherylParker!

The "moving rooms" achievement is for moving rooms throughout the game. Accumulated by the trials and errors when working out each level solution.

The lantern is the hint system. Click on the lantern and hold down the mouse button. It will show you how the rooms will be arranged when the level is solved. Although...

I have found that you CAN solve a level, get your three puzzle/gear pieces, and pass the level with other room configurations...and fewer moves.

As for the locking of the forum...I don't KNOW for sure, but I think threads are locked if there has been no activity for a period of time. Don't know what that period of time is...a Moderator could probably tell you if you message them.

Great game! Glad you found it...and hope this helps.

Hi rainworm

This IS a glitch. I had the same problem. Got it to work ONCE, so I went to the Tech Issues thread. The problem is listed there, and someone found a way around it.

You have to click beside the phone...lower left side.

Hope it works for you too.

The 2 chains raise and lower the scarecrow on the left side of the room. You will use the raven there. Make sure you look at the scarecrow in both positions.

Hope this gets you going.

Did the workaround not help you? I was able to get the phone to work, once, before I read the help in the tech thread.

They say to click beside the phone, on the lower left. Haven't tried to do it since I passed the level. Apparently I got the right place the one time it worked.

Lol...clicking furiously....

I DO like Orchid Games and this is the second story about our royal pair. The game is a nice change of pace. A light-hearted romp with color and humor.

Wish there was a category for these types of games because, it is NOT a hidden object game. We search for things to solve moving on in the game, but do not find them in HO scenes. I don't know the appropriate label...adventure light? Anyway...

Great, colorful graphics, appropriate music, and 3 difficulty levels.

Nice that there is a one hour trial...not a "sample version" demo. We actually get to play for an entire hour.

Even though it is a standard edition, there are 15 achievements and 29 lion heads to collect. No "helping hand" to give them away...and they not so easy to spot! There is a shield with a lion's head, by the menu button, to remind us to look for it.

Some of the usual things to do...and some not...that are found in other games, but the story keeps me moving forward.

Gonna have to find out how they will get themselves out of this situation. I have a game credit to use and I will be using it here. Happy gaming!

The further I go, the more I have learned to take the "tutorial levels" of each mansion to heart. The things I learned in the simpler levels, I relied on in the harder levels. Again...if I couldn't get a solution right away, in the simpler levels, I played the level several times to make sure I "got" what it was trying to teach me.

Also, so many times the solution to a level was arrived at in very roundabout ways. Making mistakes, or trying something you think is "wrong" can often open up new possibilities.

I think one of the things that has helped me the most is to be "like a dog trying to get a bone".

When I DO get a room right, I replay the level several times. It really helps me to understand the mechanics. There have been times when, after solving a room, I can't do it a second time. I'll play the room until I can get it right every time.

Ooo, prpldva! Not often we get to see a ZEBRAFISH.

I was looking at the game just yesterday. Got it on the "buy" list.

Thought it would be nice to have a place to go, for players who might be having difficulties...

Thank you, MissMoraduke, for the idea.

Anyone with tips that have helped THEM through the game, can be listed here.

Something you look for, or see, or do, that might be "no big deal" to YOU, might be a NEW idea for someone else.

Even if you find YOUR thought already posted here, post it anyway. It might help someone else see strategies that are really effective.

If your idea is NOT already posted...PLEASE post. We all learn and see things in different ways. What works for one, may not be as good for another...and vice versa.
