The Clockwork Man

JohnBThe Clockwork Man is a beautifully illustrated hidden object game from Total Eclipse. Set in a stunning steampunk world, you follow aspiring engineer Miss Miranda Calomy and her clockwork companion Sprocket as they travel from London across the seas and beyond. The adventure doesn't stray far from the hidden object standard, but the story and setting are exquisitely presented and the game itself a true joy to experience.

clockworkman.jpgAt the game's outset, Miranda receives a letter from her grandfather Cornelius, a scientist and accomplished inventor. Well, she received the letter days ago, but somehow it got lost in the disheveled mess she calls a home. What's a poor hidden object gamer to do? You guessed it, clean up the mess by finding items on a list! Once you locate the envelope you learn exactly what Cornelius needs and set out on your journey.

The Clockwork Man features several types of hidden object scenes that do a great job bending convention. The first type you'll encounter are zoomable levels where you can get an up-close view of part of the stage. You'll also get to see scrollable scenes that feature parallax objects gliding before your eyes. Use the controls at the bottom-center of the screen, the mouse wheel, or arrow keys to zoom in and out or scroll left and right. Apart from the hidden object scenes, you'll also encounter a handful of unique mini-games, all of which fit the game's steampunk setting very well.

clockworkman2.jpgAnalysis: First things first: The Clockwork Man is a beautiful game. Every item, every object and every scene is drawn with intimate detail, even the backdrops show a lot of love and attention. The game features a lot of voicework, and while I'm normally not a fan of this in casual games, Total Eclipse gets it right with surprisingly good actors. It all ties together into a neat package you can't take your eyes away from until you reach the end.

The hint system is worth mentioning, as this is usually one of the things that can make or break a hidden object game. Sprocket functions as a hint machine and he gets to equip four fun gadgets that offer a different way to find items. The only drawback is that each device uses some of his power, so the more specific the hint, the more power is consumed. Wait a while and he'll recover energy, but don't hold your clicks in the meantime. The Clockwork Man doesn't have a timer and you aren't punished for clicking too much, so feel free to explore the gorgeous scenery with as many button pushes as you like!

Now for the bad news: The Clockwork Man is a bit on the short side. For all of the meticulously handcrafted artwork, the beautiful scenery and stellar voice acting, you'll find it ends far too soon after just three enchanting chapters. It's a wonderful ride while it lasts, and the possibility of a sequel doesn't seem too far-fetched.

A beautiful atmosphere (and I'm not just saying that because I love steampunk), gorgeous settings, and hidden object gameplay that gets everything right. The Clockwork Man is nothing short of breathtaking on almost every front. The only crime the game commits is making you fall in love with it before leaving you after just three or four hours of gameplay.

Great game! However, with that said, I do have a complaint. While playing attempting to play the demo, I encountered several problems. The first being that it is very slow to load new scenes after completion of previous ones. The next complaint is that the curser moves very slowly and querky. Finally, after completion of the scene where the boat is started, the game failed to load the next scene. I waited almost twenty minutes waiting for the next scene to load and then my time ran out. I must say that if this game is like this in the demo, I would be afraid to purchase it for fear that it would prove to be unplayable.

The buy link doesn't work.

Also, clicking buy in the game goes to a different site, but buying it from there is not an option since they want my full address and phone number for no apparent reason.

This is a charming and very pretty game!

I've just had one small problem:

Has anyone else noticed, after finishing the puzzle box that you get off the guy in the hotel, you're some how in -what I can guess is the basement… Finding items and trying to fix an unknown machine? (Which I later found out was some air conditioner type thing…)

Seems some of the story (And probably not a lot of it) skips...

I didn't even get to find out what was in that puzzle box!

Has anyone else had this small 'hiccup' or is it just me…?

It's the only thing that's ruined it so far.

Hi _Kateish_!

Thank you for noticing the small glitch with the story flow.

What has happened is that an important cutscene that tells us both what's in the puzzle box, as well as how Miranda ends up in the basement was omitted from the latest game version.

We have fixed that in v.1.0.3 which will be released at our website tomorrow.

Please check out www.theclockworkman.com tomorrow for more information!

Thank you for playing our games!

The Iron Dog Figure is way over to the left if I recall and right up front. It looks kindof like a very shortish dog on a flat little base. It's a medium gray color. That's as close as I can remember.

For all the ones that are still stuck on the cave.

And all the stones, ars put on place, but the last one. Stop looking for a close door. If you look at your map, and head to the beginning. You will notice a door on you'll left that is open and the room is not shown on your map. Inside is your last stone piece.

G-mom - Mayan Stones/entering
I'm not exactly sure where you are - you have the mayan stones, so you managed the labyrinth - are your stuck at this door or the next one? If you are stuck at the door to come out of the labyrinth, please have a look at the walkthrough (Spoiler: Chapter 3, Labyrinth) on top of the comments and also see the screenshot. When you are having problems with the next door (where you do have to use the Mayan Stones), than please use the spoiler Chapter 3 - Inside the temple, where you will find instructions about what to do, including a screenshot, showing the exact positions of each Mayan Stone

Hope that helps
Greetings, Kayleigh

My labyrinth diagram doesn't look like the one in the spoiler. I do not have the right hand section at all. Any ideas?

Jeannie - Labyrinth diagram

Do you talk about the diagram, that does not show it (yet) or have you been inside the labyrinth and there are just closed walls, no free parts to enter? If it is the first, than enter the labyrinth - it might be, that the diagram shows the rooms, when you first enter them. Im not that sure about this anymore. If you are inside the labyrinth and having closed walls, you have a major bug and should ask for support at the page, you purchased the game

I, along with 3 others have spent 4 days trying to get out of the labyrinth. We have come through, found all items and have placed the stones and skull in the places designed for them to be. Now the final thing is the handkerchief and the cylinder. They or it will not go in the slot remaining. HELP. I have 21 more days to play clockwork man and I do not wish to spend all that time trying to come out and finish the game. I want to be able to unlock and play hidden objects listed. I have little experience with games on the computer and I will say I really like this one, but I a frustrated. Thanks meme o

I downloaded it and could not get it to start. It says I have to be able to contact Playfirst. I clicked ok thinking it would pop open my browser and it did not do that or open the game. How do I get it to open the game to begin with? I have a playfirst account. I dont buy my games from them but I have it.

I also am stuck at the labyrinth door...missing one stone and have been furiously clicking in every room....there seems to be one stone stuck on the lintel of a door possibly, but no amount of clicking will free it...so passed it by...now that I have the diagram of where the stones are, I will try (yet again) to find the last stone...Love the game and don't want it to end so soon!!! Or stop playing because I can't find that last stone!
Could not access the WT from here...but will keep trying.

I am stuck in the Labyrinth also, because I cannot find 1 last stone. Even after looking at cheats, I have been clicking each brick for 2 days and I am going insane. Other than this issue I love this game. I need to know where in the rooms are the stones not just what rooms they are in. Thanks

I am at the first temple door. I am working from a laptop without a mouse. i tried using the arrow keys on my keyboard and they do not work. Is there another way to open the door without a mouse and the arrow keys? I hope so or else I won't be able to continue on with the game.

I think I am at the door, with paper note with numbers on it 0 3 -2 4 7 -5 2 -6 WEN and 3 stone pieces, I can't go back and I figured out the numbers I think, but what do you do with the 3 pieces and why doesn't that door open! Very frustrated, but love the game. Hate not finishing. Monica

Help please...fun game, played during drive from Louisville to Memphis, but stuck in "Library"(?) - found all 12 Incan Statues, but can't for life of me find Axe. Spent 45 minutes having Sprockett repower up after multiple use of all hint types. Clicked all over where hints point but no axe. Stuck here. Anyone else have this problem or suggestion how I can move past this scene if it's a glitch? Thanks, AshliOz

I think I found a glitch in the labyrinth puzzle. When I was putting in one of the three stones at the bottom of the puzzle, I accidently clicked one of the slots that already held a stone and the puzzle accepted it. Now I'm one stone short and I can't find anymore, even following the map in the walkthrough. Is there any way to restart the puzzle?

Great game anyway!

I don't have all the rooms in the temple that your diagram shows. I have only been able to find 4 tiles - no cylindar and no skull. Comment said to seek help where I purchased the game?

My Labyrinth diagram also is not the same as the one in spoiler? I can't find skull or cylinder either.

Stuck in the labyrinth can not find the skull anywhere - it's certainly not where the spoiler says it is.

I am having the exact same problem!

It seems as though the axe is behind the pot with the wood planks, but it is the only item left, and there does not seem to be a way to move the pot!

If AshliOz or anyone else has figured out how to retrieve the axe in the basement of the Frenchman's shop, please let me know!

Thank you. =)

If you are trying to find it in order to Leave the Room, have a look at the walkthrough above the comments for that title in Chapter 1. There is also a screenshot.

Thank you for your reply! However, there seems to be some confusion about the axe, since there are two scenes that require finding an axe. I have already completed that scene. I am now in Chapter 2, and have already completed the scenes Blacksmith shop and General Store. The tip about looking at the screen shot helped, though. If you click on the "Inca Statuette 4" screenshot, that is the scene I am in. It is not yet time for me to collect the paper scratches, though. On the screenshot, I can clearly see the axe behind the wooden planks in the bottom left corner. I am now wondering if this is a glitch. I have already posted the same issue on the BigFish games forum for this game, and I will relay this info as well.

Thank you!

I did not have to uninstall the game. =)
