Tales From The Dragon Mountain: The Strix: General Information

Allow our Tales From the Dragon Mountain: The Strix Walkthrough to be your companion as you fight to defeat an evil spirit. When Mina starts having nightmares about her childhood home being consumed by flames, along with her beloved grandmother, she decides to take a trip back to ease her worries. However her quest for peace quickly turns into an adventure full of trials and danger. Our step-by-step instructions, insider tips, and custom screenshots will give you the edge you need to help Mina defeat Strix once and for all.

As you start the game, you need to decide which difficulty to play. I recommend playing Casual mode.The hints and the sparkles aren't too helpful with this game, so you don't need Easy mode. If you play Adventure without the Find Items list, then the cursor will change when you hover over something you need to pick up. I think it's a more fun challenge to actually look for and find items from a list, rather than just hover over everything in the scene. I also found the Tasks list to be kind of obvious and thus not too helpful. So Casual mode it was for me! But the good thing is that you can switch back and forth if you want.

The Walkthrough is written as if you didn't play the Tutorial, but you still might want to go ahead and do so, just to get familiar with how the cursor changes and such. There are things to interact with in the game, especially in the beginning, that are not necessary for gameplay, so I have not included them. However, you should feel free to check everything out. There is really nothing you can do here to mess yourself up. On the Screenshots, I have circled items on the Find Items list in yellow. Orange circles were used for other areas/items you need to interact with. The game is divided into very distinct chapters.
