Title Screen

Opening Story:

In Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman, it's New York circa 1799. Join Constable Crane (hmmm, Crane...) as he is sent from New York City to solve three beheadings, presumably by the Headless Horseman himself.  Is he a demon or man in disguise? Secret marriage, new will, time will tell. As you attempt to solve the murder, both humans and the ghosts of the beheaded murder victims will make requests of you. The graves of the dead will arise on the start screen after releasing each ghost.

General Tips for Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman

Difficulty Settings - There are two difficulty settings: Easy Mode and Difficult Mode.   

Arrow Cursor - When you cursor turns into an arrow, it means you go move in that direction. 

Hand Cursor - When your cursor turns into a hand, it means you can pick up an item and add it to your inventory.

Pointing Finger Icon - When your cursor turns into a finger, it means you can move an item or bring the ghost out of a dead body.

Speech Bubble Icon - After you have spoken to a character once, if they still need to talk or want something, your cursor will turn into a speech bubble.

Magnifying Glass Icon - When your cursor turns into a magnifying glass, it means you can zoom into an area to get a better look.

Gear Cursor - When you cursor turns into 2 gears, it means you need to use an object from your inventory on it.

Golden Horseshoes - Each scene including hidden object scenes have 1 to 2 golden horseshoes hidden in them.  Collect the horseshoes and you can purchase trophies.  All horseshoes are circled in white throughout the walkthrough.

Hidden Object Scenes - Hidden Object Areas will sparkle. There are 2 types of scenes.  Objects listed in white are in plain sight and yellow are behind or in something else.  The other type is pictures of the items to find.  Don't forget to look for horseshoes also, as you won't get another chance. 

Inventory - Your inventory can be found at the bottom of the screen. It is not identified as such but it is rather obvious. 

Combine - Above the inventory is a button for combining items.  Click on Combine and 2 boxes will pop up where you can place 2 items to become one.  You do not need to use this when you are combining 2 halves of an item together though.   

Hints - Hints can be found in the lower right hand corner of your screen by clicking the pumpkin. Click here if you're stuck. Just remember, these take time to charge before you can use it again

Journal - Your journal does not store too many hints (observations).  It is located in the bottom left.  Pages regarding the Headless Horseman myth will also be placed in there as you pick them up. 

Skip - During mini-games, if you are having trouble or maybe you just don't feel like solving it, you can click on the skip button.

Trophies - Trophies can be accessed directly from the playing screen by clicking on the arrow at the top of the screen.  You will be notified how many horseshoes you have available and can open the Trophies screen and purchase the items.

Achievements - Achievements are in the trophies area and are in the cabinet.  There are 18 total and are self-explanatory.   

And that's the basics for playing Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman! Good luck! And we hope you enjoy our Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman Walkthrough!
