We've packed this Hidden Mysteries Walkthrough full of everything you need to know to complete the game, including tons of screenshots clearly marked with key locations, solutions to each and every puzzle, and detailed start-to-finish instructions.


  • So, you’re back in the 1950’s, sitting outside Graceland as Elvis begins moving in.
  • Click on the rear door to the van and note that it won’t stay open.
  • Take the ROLL OF CARPET underneath the van – what, you’re supposed to carry this thing around everywhere? Have you even tried carrying a roll of carpet around on your own?
  • Look inside the front of the van and note the glove compartment that won’t open. 
  • Head to the front of the house.


  • Note the scaffolding and the item out of reach, and the pieces of stained glass missing over the entry.
  • Next, enter the foyer.


  • Take the BUNGEE CORD hanging on the stair banister. 
  • Then glance inside the box to the left of the planter and take note of the to-do list.
  • Exit back outside to the van and use the BUNGEE CORD to keep the rear roller door open.
  • Zoom in to initiate the next HOA puzzle


  • Pick up all the items circled in red, after which you’ll receive the HANDTRUCK. 
  • Head back into the house and turn right into the living room.

Living Room

  • The idea is to use the HANDTRUCK to move all the boxes out of the way.
  • The basic rule is that you can only use the hand truck to push a box from a side that either isn’t abutting another box or doesn’t have a pallet next to it.
  • Also note that  that when pushing a box, the hand truck will push it all the way in that direction until it runs up against something – this is important to note.
  • Use the accompanying video clip as a guide –  it can be done more quickly, but it worked! The puzzle doesn’t have a reset, so I was learning as I was going!



  • Next comes the task of laying the carpet.
  • The rolls vary in size and the direction they lay.
  • The trick is to make them all fit into the rectangle.
  • Look at the screenshot for the solution.


  • Return to the foyer and head to Elvis’ mother’s room. 
  • Take the LADDER, then zoom in on the open suitcase on the bed and take the STAINED GLASS pieces.
  • Exit, and head outside to the front of the house.



  • Use the LADDER to climb the scaffolding and reach the CAN OF PAINT.
  • Then zoom in on the area over the door and put the STAINED GLASS pieces in place to initiate the next puzzle.

Glass Puzzle

  • The idea is to reorient the glass pieces to make sense of the whole thing.
  • Refer to the screenshot to make sense of the final product.
  • When complete return inside to Gladys’ room.



  • Place the CAN OF PAINT next to the roller, at which point the paint job in the room will be completed.
  • Note that something is missing on the dresser.
  • Return back outside to the foyer and head to the right into the dining room.


  • Help yourself to the BUTTERKNIFE sitting on the dining table.
  • Note the point that the boxes need to be opened, then head back out through the foyer and head over to the van.


Glovebox Van

  • Use the BUTTERKNIFE to prize open the glove box.
  • Take the BOXKNIFE lying inside and head back into the house and over to the dining room


  • Use the BOX KNIFE on the box to the right and take the FINE CHINA. 
  • Place the china in the cabinet to the left to initiate the next puzzle.


China Puzzle

  • The aim of this puzzle is to orientate the plates so that the edge symbols match up directly to the neighboring china.
  • Clicking on the plates rotates them.
  • See the screenshot for the solution.
  • When complete return to the foyer.


  • Zoom in on the nearby box with the to-do list, noting that all the tasks have now been completed.
  • Pick up the list, at which point another layer will receive itself in the box, showing Gladys’ MUSIC BOX.
  • Pick it up and head to her bedroom.



  • Enter the bedroom and place the MUSIC box on top of the dresser.
  • All is now well in Elvis world.
  • Watch the resulting clip, after which you’ll be returned to the present.
