  1. The randomness of the HOS make the game replayable. Place the Corkscrew on the table. It took me 10 minutes of fruitless searching for a code to realise one such game was a simple matching pairs puzzle!

  2. There is nothing to pick up in this pop-up window. I recommend the Collectors Edition mostly because of the Strategy Guide feature, but there are also 4 extra scenes in the Bonus chapter, 3 new mini games and 3 new HOS, lock and key puzzles, the original EAP novella, artwork, soundtracks, wallpapers, and a sneak peak at the next game in the series, enjoy! Some items are large and obvious, more are subtle, and some are devilishly hidden, but as I say, fair. Even then it can take time to find what your looking for. Your goal is to move all the lock parts into the right positions.

  3. Click on the top drawer on the left for a closer view. Grab the Garden Scissor part from inventory and place it on the other Garden Scissor part. Give the Coachman the Coin from inventory.

  4. Click on the broken step to take a piece off. Place the Pickaxe in the spot shown in the screenshot. Pick up the Corkscrew inside the pot.
