Music Box of Life 2 is a tricky, online point-and-click spot-a-difference game where you play a part in the storytelling of a romantic drama. You must find miniscule differences in 15 split-screen levels. Each spot-a-difference challenge reveals a new element to the story of an unhappy young bride and her childhood sweetheart. The differences between the two pictures are almost invisible on first glance. You must concentrate hard, locate and eliminate the tiny differences in each level to further the story – but it’s certainly not easy!
You need the forensic eye of an eagle, and good concentration and observation skills to succeed in this picture puzzle, as some of the differences are so small that they are very difficult to see with an untrained eye. Methodically study each cartoon image, and try to find the solution of what is missing, or different, from the opposite side. The suspense builds as you progress through the storyboard, but don’t lose patience or get over-enthusiastic for quick answers – you lose points each time you make a mistake. It’s so easy for your eyes to pass over the minor discrepancies between the two split-screen images. Ok Sleuth Extraordinaire, it’s time to get out and dust off your magnifying glass!
How to Play: In each of the 15 levels, you have two similar pictures side-by-side. Your job is to find and eliminate the tiny differences between the two. The number of differences in each level is indicated underneath the two pictures. Using your computer mouse or touchpad, move your cursor around the left-hand picture, trying to find discrepancies between it and the right hand image. Notice that your mouse cursor appears as a mirror of itself in the right hand image. If you spot one of the differences, Left Click on its location in the left hand picture. The difference corrects itself, and you score 35 points.
In early levels, you only have 4 differences to find, but this number increases as the game progresses. If you click on an area where there is no difference, you lose 5 points from your total. If you get stuck at any stage, click on the ‘Hint’ button in the bottom right corner of the game screen. This highlights a general area within the images where a difference is located. Blue Stars flash in the area for a short amount of time, so make sure your eyes are peeled. The Hint button takes some time to ‘recharge’ before you can use it again. Tip: Focus on a general area of each image, and quickly move your eyes from the left to the right one. Eventually, you should start to notice any discrepancies between the two.
