Overview: In this twisted fairytale, evil comes to town and steals all the riches and happiness. Therefore, when a rather nasty man offers loads of gold to marry the King's daughter, he throws her to the wolves and says yes! The Princess calls upon her admirer, Munchausen to save her from a fate worse than death.

Hints: These are unlimited, but need to refill.

Hidden Object Puzzles: These are not your normal hidden object scenes. You must drag an image from the right onto a similar image in the scene.

Finding Items: A item is shown on the right in while form with a number beside it. This number tells you how many "parts" must be found to make the entire item. Sometimes not all the parts are in the current scene and it will say, for example, 1 + 2. Meaning, 1 item is in this location/scene and 2 other items to complete it are in another location/scene. The screen in some locations can be moved left and/or right.

Mechanism Puzzles: At the end of each chapter you must complete a puzzle. You will use your inventory items to complete the moving puzzle.
