How to Play: In each of the Crime Scene levels, you have to find a set of Clues that are listed on the right hand side of the game screen. These Clues are random objects that are hidden around the extremely untidy crime scene. Scan your eyes around the room, and try to find the objects that are listed. If you think you spot one, Left Click on it using your computer mouse or touchpad. If you have correctly identified one of the Clues, it moves into your Detectives Box in the bottom right hand corner. The object also disappears from the clue list. If you click on something that is not one of the Clues, nothing happens.
There’s no time to waste, as there is a clock ticking down in each of the two crime scenes. In the first level, you have 4 minutes to find all of the objects. However, in the second level, you only have 2 minutes. Keep an eye on the timer in the top right corner of the game screen. Once the timer runs out, it’s game over and you have to start again – with a different set of Clues. If you get stuck at any stage, click on the ‘Hint’ button located just underneath the timer. This highlights a general area where one of the objects is hidden (the object is within the circle that appears on screen). Use your Hint wisely, as you can only activate it once in each level. Once you complete both levels, why not try again and see if you can find the objects more quickly. The clues are different each time you begin.
