Alyssa's Quest

In the weirdly hilarious opening scene of Carmel Games' point-and-click adventure Alyssa's Quest, Alyssa, a young elf heroine whose pink cape and purple makeup surely help her blend in when stalking through the woods, arrives at the castle only to find King Nathaniel frozen solid, and deduces that the culprit is... are you ready?... Doctor Secret Nightowl. To play, and hopefully save the day from your amazingly named nemesis, click around to explore and interact. The cursor will change whenever it passes over something you can use, and Alyssa will visit several different locations from the main map. Click on first one item in your inventory and then another to try to combine them. Alyssa's Quest is, like a lot of Carmel Games' titles, very silly in a good way, so Alyssa finds herself stymied by things like a royal advisor who refuses to take orders from anyone other than the frozen king, a sensitive dragon, and a whole bunch of zaps from a booby-trapped cauldron. It's not particularly complex, and the overly epic soundtrack tends to overwhelm the voice acting, but its light-hearted tone and sense of humour makes it a welcome diversion to your day.

Hmmm. Occasionally, a game on this website comes up in a window in which the game doesn't fit in the usual Flash frame. This is one of those games. The right and bottom of the game is beyond the visible area of the frame.

Expanding the page using ctrl+ makes the whole page larger, but doesn't alter the amount of the game that's visible in the frame.

Anyone encounter a similar phenomenon? If so, how do you fix it? I'm using Firefox, if that's any help.

Hmmm, I didn't have that issue. Then again, I'm using Chrome.

This game was a little easier to play than the usual Carmel Games offering. I don't mind having to combine weird items together, but get frustrated if I'm pixel-hunting for the perfect hotspot to reach something (or when the hotspot is too close to the interaction spot for a long dialogue).

I'm kind of disappointed that

you didn't get to ride the mine cart/move further into the crystal mine.

Or that you couldn't defrost the king directly by dragon

But that's just me waiting for another Detarou escape, I guess.

Sometimes when my game doesn't fit in the window, it's because I've changed the zoom on the browser to something other than 100%. Changing it back usually fixes the problem for me.

Read the note she gives you. You’ll see that each mushroom has a different number of white spots. This is the key to opening the chest at the magical pond, so head there now.

Magical Pond

The trick to figuring out the combination is in the notes. Take the number of spots on the red mushroom and subtract it from the amount on the green mushroom for each Roman numeral.

I – 6-4=2
II – 7-3=4
III – 5-4=1
IV – 5-4=1
V – 6-3=3

So, the combination is 24113. Enter this and click the lock to open the chest and get a wand.

Go to Secret Nightowl's evil lair.
