The Serpent of Isis 2

joyeOh, that Isis. She's quite a charmer, even with the whole "annually flooding the Nile river because my husband died boo hoo" thing. She's also apparently very fond of having her artifacts scattered throughout picturesque European cities. In 2009, the first Serpent of Isis game had hidden object fans jetsetting Prague and London in a quest to recover the titular thingummy and fulfill the dream of the hero Robert's dead grandfather. It was an excellent game that soon had people clamoring for a sequel, and now your journey can finally continue in, well, The Serpent of Isis: Your Journey Continues. Gamgo Games have made the new game in much the same mold as the first, with the hidden object scenes being the main attraction and the adventure and puzzle elements only there for a little variety. Enjoy beautiful scenes set in Paris, Venice and more as you search for the Tomb of Isis. Next game: the Vacation Home of Isis?

The Serpent of Isis 2The Serpent of Isis 2 is welcoming to both hidden object pros and newbies, featuring casual mode where sparkles guide the eye to clickable spots and no timer breathes down your neck. It also features an excellent tutorial, which is skippable for those of you who know the hidden object drill already. The game does have a somewhat uncommon set-up for its inventory, however. It can be accessed by clicking on the suitcase in the lower right, or by clicking on the bar at the top. Some objects, generally clues, can be zoomed in on by clicking on the magnifying class on them inside the inventory. Objects are never combined within the inventory, only in the game world.

The hidden object finding is pretty straightforward for the genre: you're given a scene and a list of objects, and you must find all of them. Sometimes some of the objects are listed in blue rather than black. If that's the case, you must manipulate something within the scene, perhaps using an inventory item to do so, in order to uncover the item. You're rewarded with at least one inventory item for every successfully completed hidden object scene, and most frequently these are used in what gamers usually call "inventory puzzles", figuring out what object is needed to coax a cat out of a tree or whatever. The game also contains more straight-up puzzles in order to open locks, piece together torn papers, and manipulate mysterious devices. The puzzles are a nice blend of old standbys like the photograph jigsaw and more challenging ones that require careful consideration of the clues.

Analysis: Hidden object games are a pretty hokey genre. The Serpent of Isis 2 lives and breathes all kinds of hokeyness: melodrama, multiple exclamation points, obsessive collection of useless objects after the useful object has been found. Love it or hate it, that's the game! Personally, I have to love it. It doesn't do anything by halves. Every character has that "my IQ has suddenly plummeted in reaction to this shocking news!" face as an option, and it's pulled out of the avatar repertoire whenever anything even a tiny bit exciting has happened. By the end of the game, I'm pretty sure Robert's face has frozen that way. It's too bad his grandfather didn't leave a note warning him about that. The game is so hilariously sincere that it makes me want to cuddle it and give it a mug of warm milk and a cookie.

The Serpent of Isis 2Luckily, the game is as serious about doing the hidden object gameplay well as it is in living up to the somewhat dubious reputation of hidden object plots. Only two or three times in the entire game did I run into the issue of unclear or ambiguous object names (for example, one scene called for a "mallet" and contained both a croquet mallet and a meat tenderizer; the game only accepted the latter). Objects and scenes are clearly drawn and well lit enough to be fair and eliminate the eyestrain problem that plagues many contemporary hidden object games, but still provide a challenge to even the veteran player. The puzzle and adventure game parts are quite limited, so be aware of that going in; the game assumes you're here for the hidden object scenes and that's how you'll spend the majority of your time. However, they are also very well done. It should be noted that while the hints are given generously, they are almost useless outside of the hidden object scenes. Several times, when I was stuck about where to go next or stymied by a puzzle, I tried a hint, only to be told to do something I'd already done, or something keyboard-face-smashingly-obvious and vague, like "I should look for a clue!"

As the most recent Babylon Sticks comic adeptly demonstrated, there is a supervillain stalking our game shelves, and his name is The Incredible Shrinking Gametime. The problem isn't quite as frustrating when you're paying Big Fish Games' reasonable rates instead of $60 for a console game, but a lot of players are fed up with games where by the time you've finished the demo, the game is more than half-over. Serpent of Isis 2 took me four hours to beat, and I would say that if you're the "run to the walkthrough or ask for help at the first sign of trouble" style gamer, it would still take you at least 3 hours, because no walkthrough in the world can rush you through the game's hidden object scenes; you actually have to depend on your own item finding skills there. This truly makes the game a solid "buy" recommendation for hidden object fans.

Serpent of Isis: Your Journey Continues Walkthrough

Tips and Tricks:

  • Clicking too many times without picking up a hidden object in hidden object scenes causes a loss of control of the cursor; however, the game is comparatively lax about what it considers random clicking. Pausing for a while is enough to clear the random click "bank", so to speak. This makes random clicking something of a better strategy in this game than most, particularly because objects are often large and easy to hit.

  • Use the map in the lower right corner to quickly travel between rooms you've already visited, and to get clues for locations of unvisited rooms.

  • You can either click on the top of the screen or on the suitcase to open the inventory. However, it's not that easy to hit the top of the screen inventory button; especially if you're trying to use an object on a zoomed in area, it's easy for the game to think you're trying to click out, which can be frustarting. The suitcase is a much more straightforward way to open the inventory.

  • Skipping puzzles takes hardly any waiting time at all. It adds twenty minutes to your final game time, but if you don't care about your score, that doesn't matter.

  • By collecting all the special items in a chapter, you get a two hint bonus. If you use up all your hints, the hint meter will slowly recharge back up to 1 hint. If you have one or more hints, the hint meter will not give you any more.

  • Items listed in blue can only be found by moving something within the scene. This walkthrough will explain how to open or move whatever is necessary to reveal the blue items.

  • In this walkthrough, areas referred to in the text are marked with bright pink. Random objects that change every time you play are not marked to avoid distraction.

  24. You must use all your clue images to match up the pictures with the numbers. The rope on the left rotates the pictures, and the rope on the right enters the solution. The "active" roman numeral will be in blue, and when solved correctly, it will change to gold. Starting at the top and going clockwise, you need to rotate and lock in this order:

  25. Moon, chalice, key, book, fleur-de-lis, building, pyramid, rose.

    The screenshot displays the rose in the final position, and marks all the other pictures with their correct order.

  11. Go further down from the second sleeper car into the conductor's area. There is a hidden object area on the left and a gated area on the right. Zoom in on the gated area and use the pliers on the links repeatedly to break in. Once you finish, the toolbox behind the gate is a hidden object scene. Screenshot.

  9. You have to unlock the suitcase in the dark too. Turn the knobs so that the two shapes mimic the shapes on the bottom row. In the screenshot, the two shapes are mimicking the first shape. Do the four shapes in order from left to right and then hit the slider at the top to open the suitcase and get a hidden object scene. Screenshot.

  10. Still in the dark! You'll find a folded paper at the top middle that turns out to be a fax. Screenshot.

  11. Go back to your own room and do the hidden object scene in the map. The objects are all random. You will get another map.

  12. Go back outside and to the boat area. Talk to the boatman and he will say the gate needs to be opened to go anyhere. Go forward to the gate area. Note the number 12 over the red light. That's the gate ID number. Click on the control panel to the left and enter in the water level from the boat (7) and the gate ID (12). The dials are a little odd, the short end is the end you need to point at the number, not the long end. Screenshot.

  13. Go back to the boatman and have him take you to the church. Enter it and note the openings in the wall and engravings on the floor. You can't do anything else here, so go back to the original boat area. Screenshot.

  14. The boat will have another hidden object scene, where you will find a dagger. Screenshot.

  15. Go back to the hotel room and use the dagger on the shield to pry off part of it and get a stone disk. Go back to the church and use the stone disk on the center slot, and you will unlock a new location, the library.

  16. Go the library and get the special item on the lefthand side. Screenshot.

  17. Go inside and there is another special item in the center. Try the center bookcase but it can't be opened yet. Screenshot.

  18. Go back to the hotel and do another hidden object scene at the desk to find a dart. Screenshot.

  19. Go upstairs, and there will be a housekeeping cart in the hall. Zoom in and get the rust remover spray. Then return to the library and use the dart to pick the lock. Find another stone disk in the hidden object scene. Screenshot.

  20. Go to the church and use this stone disk to unlock another location, the Palazzo. Go there. There is a special item in the upper left corner. Screenshot.

  21. Go inside. Click the mosaic on the left to do a hidden object scene. It is all random items; you wll get a wall tile when you finish it. The chandelier will lower. Zoom in on it and use the rust remover spray on the rusty nuts, then take them off with the pliers. Take the stone disk out. Screenshot.

  22. Go back to the church and put the last disk in. Rotate the disks so that all the pictures are rightside up. Screenshot. Click again to zoom in and use the wooden sword in the slot. Walk down the tunnel and get the red capsule and the key.

  23. You will automatically be taken to the lighthouse. Get the special item on the left. Zoom in the door and open it with the key. Screenshot.

  24. Click on the control panel. Screenshot.

  25. Spin the rings in the picture to match the tile from the mosaic. Push the top button twice, the second button 5 times, the third button 7 times, and the bottom button twice. Screenshot.

  26. Go up to the top of the lighthouse and note the three round floor tiles and their positions with regard to north, south, east, and west. Screenshot.

  27. Go around to the other side of the lighthouse and note the last round tile, then zoom in on the door. Screenshot.

  28. Match the directional images to the ones from the tiles. Screenshot.

  29. Head up the stairs and switch the lights on and enter the ship. Click on the number-symbol guide at left. Click on the slot at the bottom of the main control panel to get the key. Zoom in on the control panel. Screenshot.

  30. Turn the power on with the key. Look at the pocket watch and match its inscriptions to the number-symbol guide. Screenshot.

  31. The solution is:

  32. 29-31-9-13.

    Enter this into the control panel and click the button at the bottom. Screenshot.

Chapter 7:

  1. The special item in this chapter is a scarab. Take the one on the fallen obelisk in the front. Click on the left hand obelisk to get a clue, then go through the doorway. Screenshot.

  2. Take the special item on the right and go forward twice. Screenshot.

  3. Take two special items, one on the upper left, and one on the lower right. You can't get across yet. Screenshot.

  4. Go back and click on the pedestal in the center. Screenshot.

  5. Take the special item in the lower left corner. Use the blue capsule on the hole. Screenshot.

  6. Go left and take the special item at the top center. Zoom in on the pedestal and use the red capsule on the hole. Click on the tile in the back. Screenshot.

  7. Click on the tiles until they switch to the portion of the desired picture. This is the most tedious puzzle in the game, and if you skip it, I don't blame you! Screenshot.

  8. Go back to the center and then right, and do basically the same thing: get the special item at top, put the green capsule in the hole, and click on the back tile. Screenshot.

  9. Solve this puzzle in the same tedious way as the first one or skip it as you wish. It'll be our secret. Screenshot.

  10. Go back to the center and forward and now you can walk to the door. There is one special item on the left. Then use the mysterious key on the keyhole. Screenshot.

  11. Go through, and there's another special item on the left hand pillar. Now you have to depress the tiles to match the clue you got from the obelisk out front. Screenshot.

  12. Here is the original picture: it is taken as if from the other side, so it needs to be rotated twice mentally to match it to the puzzle. Screenshot.

  13. Enter the final room and get the final special item to the upper left. Then click on the ankh on Isis's neck and once again to take it and win the game! Screenshot.

I like the idea of finding hidden objects in classical paintings.
