Escape the Museum: General Information


You take your daughter Caitlin to work with at The Natural Museum when an earthquake strikes! You manage to get Caitlin to safety but as you go to check on the museum, you become trapped. With the help of John, the engineer, who contacts you via your cell phone, you can find your way through the museum and back to your daughter. However, your boss Marcus wants to you to find rare artifacts along the way (he's a tad insensitive).

Tips & Tricks:

Cell Phone: the first thing you need to do is pick up your ringing cell phone once you awake. This is your only contact to the outside world.

Finding Objects: this HOG actually has some objects hidden behind others, which you may not be able to see until you clear something. They creators of this game also like to hide things at the very edge of the screen.

How To Escape The Rooms:
* John, the engineer, will tell you what you need to do to escape each room, if you follow his instructions, you won't need any hints.
* Above the scene will be a silhouette of the items you need to find.
* When you get near an object/area of interest, your cursor will change to a magnifying glass with a + sign inside. Click whenever this happens and you will get an item or dialogue/hint (this does not take away from your points).
* You may also see your cursor have a ? mark beside it, that means you are near an object/area of interest, click it!
* Next, drag and drop items where appropriate until they fit together.
* If you are still stuck, I will post the steps in the guide below.

Find 10: After each chapter you will be able to go back to previous room and "find 10" of a certain object that is shown at the top of the screen. They are usually not in full color, I suggest you look for the "shape".

Mini Games:
1. Puzzle - simply drag the pieces back into the paintings until the picture is complete again, these are very simple.
2. Weights - click the empty pedestal to adjust the weight size and click again to drop the weight. You can only use 3 weights, once the meter is in the green zone you can take the artifact. The maximum amount of the weight is 200, so if you need 350 you could allow one to be full weight and another weight at 150 or the last two weights at 75.

Completing Levels: once you complete a chapter, you have to go back to certain rooms, once a room is complete it will turn yellow on the map. Some levels will have locked areas which will open up as you progress further into the game.
