Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments

DoraHolmes and Watson are back for more, and things are going to get messy in Frogwares' mystery adventure game Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments as you take on the role of the legendary and borderline insufferable detective solving a series of challenging (and sometimes gruesome) cases. Six cases, to be exact, each centering on a very different crime. A violent murder, a baffling disappearance, a daring theft and more... all of them will require Sherlock's unique mind and talents to solve. With the help of his own unique and formidable brain that will allow him to see things others don't as well as perform a variety of other useful abilities, you'll guide Holmes to uncover not just the truth behind the crimes committed by interrogating witnesses, solving puzzles, and tracking down evidence, but you'll also decide what, ultimately, you'll do with the perpetrator... as long as you can figure out who it is, since it's perfectly possible to accuse the wrong individual. While unfortunately Creepy Watson is a thing of the past, Crimes and Punishments still manages to deliver an engaging, carefully crafted adventure game with high production values and an immersive atmosphere.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and PunishmentsFor the most part, gameplay is about traveling around different maps, exploring locations, interrogating people, searching for clues, and playing dress-up with Holmes' wardrobe and makeup table. Sherlock has a variety of methods for pulling apart evidence, from assembling a mental picture based on scent to finding correlations between things you've spotted, but you'll need to guide him and point everything out because, well... video game. Holmes himself controls with [WASD] to move around and the mouse to interact whenever a prompt appears. By pressing [T] you can toggle Sherlock's keen sense of observation to help spot clues others have missed, recording them as evidence. When talking to people, you may be required to quickly press a key before time runs out, giving you the chance to choose the piece of evidence you've observed that will back up your statements. Arguably the most important tool in Sherlock's arsenal, however, is Baker Street itself, which you'll have to return to frequently to consult with our hero's formidable archives, make use of chemistry, change disguises, exasperate Watson, and more.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and PunishmentsHitting [B] will open a menu that will allow you to combine elements, observations, clues, and people to form deductions that will drive your case. This allows you to construct a psychological map of connections, and the way you choose to interpret them will impact the outcome of a case. You could, for instance, choose to believe an item at a murder scene belonging to someone is merely circumstantial evidence, or clear proof that person is a suspect, and combining that train of thought with a clear motive and means will allow you to accuse that suspect of the crime. If a node turns red, it means the deduction you've made conflicts something you've already established, such as claiming someone is the murderer despite previously tagging them as having no motive. You can swap out and change any of these elements at any time, but when you're finally ready to decide who comitted the crime, you then have to decide how you want to do so. Do you accuse them of premeditated murder? Were they merely protecting themselves? Lead astray by someone else?

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and PunishmentsAnalysis: Yeah, I admit, Crimes and Punishments won me over a little right from the get-go with its snappy little opening cinematic like I was watching House or Hannibal, and then the way the very first gameplay had me play as Watson dodging wild shots around the furniture as a blindfolded Holmes took potshots at vases for funsies. It established a certain amount of character, tone, and charm, and when it popped up with a little visual representation of how Holmes could know who was coming up his stairs before they even came into the room, I was hooked. Having a scene in which you get to conduct harpoon experiments on a pig carcass, Mythbusters-style, was just the icing on the cake. Make no mistake, this Sherlock is closer to a more reserved and smug version of Robert Downey Jr's interpretation of the iconic detective than Steven Moffat's, but it's still nice to see him depicted as a brilliant yet rude and socially distant jerkward instead of a brilliant, aloof, perfect ladies' man as some interpretations have done.

Though the tank-driven controls are still, ehhh, clunky to be charitable, Crimes and Punishments is actually a very solid and effortlessly playable game. Though it initially seems like the game piles a bit too many different minor gameplay elements on you when you're trying to hunt for clues or make certain deductions, it's actually a good way to illustrate the way Sherlock's mind works and how he constructs his conclusions and connections. Some of which, incidentally, seem like rather large leaps of deductive reasoning, but I suppose that's why he's Sherlock and I'm writing this in my novelty kitty pajamas. The game is good at nudging you where it wants you to go and never goes quite so far as holding your hand, though it never quite feels like it develops enough teeth. There's no penalty for failure, so if you give a character the wrong answer the game just reloads that dialogue option and lets you try again until you get it. Puzzles will even let you skip them without much prompting. It makes for a game that's accessible to everyone, to be sure, but it also would have been nice to have multiple difficulty settings to avoid all the pop-ups and guidance.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and PunishmentsEach crime and scenario is distinct and well-crafted with layers of depth and possible suspects. Though you'll find there's a lot of backtracking involved, the game is great at providing you with a brisk pace and keeping you involved with tasks that feel critical to your work, rather than acting as simple busywork to pad the length. Each case has a distinct cast of characters, and offers up new locations as well, keeping the game fresh the whole way. Occasionally it feels like the game's "best" outcome for each case is perhaps a little too predictable and boring compared to some of the incorrect solutions, and several puzzles, such as the locks, are repeated throughout the game. Most cases will likely only take around two hours or so to complete, despite gradually increasing in complexity, and some of them are easily more cozy than others, though it's fun to see how your decision in one case may be referenced in another.

Crimes and Punishments is, it must be said, an absolutely gorgeous, gorgeous game from every conceivable angle. Most areas are limited in their interaction to things relating directly to your investigation, but you can still spend a long time just wandering around them and admiring all the detail that went into crafting every single environment. Sure, there's a badly mutilated corpse pinned to the wall over there, but gosh look at the wee little garden and the way the sunlight comes in through the windows! Characters tend to have difficulty expressing emotion, unfortunately, with faces that don't quite move or flex enough to really bring them to life, though the voice acting is on the whole very well done. (Which helps to make up for the numerous typos and errors in the subtitles, sadly.)

Despite its flaws, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is still one of the best adventure games to come along in a long, long time. The passion behind the subject matter is clear, with intriguing cases to solve and stunning locales to explore, and the writing is top-notch. It's the sort of game that's likely going to take you a lot longer than an evening to play through, but you'll do your best to burn the midnight oil with it because, like any good mystery, it's hard to put down. Crimes and Punishments is a Sherlock game to be proud of, balancing wit and inventiveness with the more horrific aspects of its crimes, and a worthy addition to any fan's archives indeed.

  1. Move the cursor over the right side of the sofa.

    • Click the icon that appears over the sofa to take cover behind it.

    • Next, move the cursor above the bear skin rug and to the right of the table and click the icon to take cover again.

    • Lastly, click on Sherlock's leg to approach him.

  2. After the cinematic, press the [Tab] key to open your Casebook.

    • Select the "Tasks" tab of the Casebook to have a look at your current goals.

  3. Walk forward and open the door on the right to enter Holmes' room.

    • Open the wardrobe to view the available outfits and costumes.

    • Click the right or left arrows at the lower right corner of the screen to cycle through the outfits, then select any one of suits and press [Esc] to put the suit on.

      • Additionally, you can use the Make-up Table to change your hairstyle, facial hair, and glasses, but it isn't necessary at this time to do so.

  4. Once you're ready, open the Casebook and select the green Map tab to view a map of London and its surrounding areas. Click the Woodman's Lee icon to travel to that location.

Part 2 - Join Lestrade at Woodman's Lee

  1. As soon as you arrive, Inspector Lestrade will call to you from the upper level of the garden. Follow the stone path and walk up the stairs to join him.

    • On your way, there are two pieces of evidence you should examine.

      • First, you can click the patch of plants on either side of the path to inspect the Garden, which is added to your list of Evidence in the Casebook.

      • Second, on the left side of the path near the constable with the magnifying glass you will find a set of footprints. Press the [T] key to use Sherlock's investigative talent View, turning the screen black and white.

      • Hold the cursor over the Footprints for a few seconds until they flash and glow yellow, then click the prints to add the Unidentified Footprints to your Evidence.

      • Note that a question mark icon remains beside the prints, indicating that we'll need to use another piece of evidence here. We don't have the required item just yet.

  2. Approach Lestrade and, after a brief cinematic, Holmes will begin to question the first witness, Mrs. Carey.

    • Before asking her any questions, however, you should first click the Character Portrait icon at the bottom of the screen, which will allow you to take a close look at the witness and the surrounding area.

      • While in Character Portrait mode, press and hold the [D] key until the camera moves down to Mrs. Carey's shirt. Click the Cameo locket hanging from her neck.

    • Select the dialogue option "Everything will become easier."

      • When the quick-time event appears, press the [Q] key before the timer runs out.

      • Choose the line "Pilgrimage". This will also add a note to the Evidence tab in your Casebook

    • Exhaust all the remaining dialogue options until you're finished questioning Mrs. Carey, for now.

  3. Meet Inspector Lestrade outside of the cabin, then click the cabin door.

    • Switch to Sherlock's talent View again and move the cursor target over the scratched lock under the door handle.

    • Zoom in on the door handle and click the Scratches. Once Holmes confirms that someone tried to break in, you can click the door to enter the Cabin.

Part 3 - The Crime Scene at Woodman's Lee Cabin

  1. When you enter the cabin, turn left and examine the wall shelf to take a closer look.

    • Turn on Sherlock's talent View (by pressing [T]) and move your cursor over the blank space on the right side of the shelf.

    • Click the Outline in the Dust to inspect it.

    • At this point, Holmes will deduce that a small box has disappeared from this place on the shelf. He will "imagine" the box instead. You can toggle Imagination on or off by pressing the [F] key.

  2. Turn towards the center wall and click the chest on the floor.

    • Open the chest and take Peter Carey's Boots inside.

  3. Take a look at the bookshelves on the wall above the opened chest.

    • Examine the middle of the lower shelf to note the Ships Logs. They'll be added to your Evidence, but you'll see there's an Object of Interest still missing. We'll have to come back again later.

  4. Move to the corpse against the wall and click Dead Peter Carey to examine the body.

    • While viewing the body you can examine the following areas: Peter Carey's Face, Peter Carey's Clothes, the Harpoon, and his Pierced Chest.

    • Take the Tobacco Pouch to get a closer look.

      • Examine the initials burned on to the front of the pouch.

      • Drag the right mouse button to rotate the pouch and view the back side. Left click the Flap to open the pouch. Turn the pouch again to look inside, then click the Tobacco.

  6. A minigame will start after you collect the evidence from the Tobacco Pouch

    • Arrange the blue lines to complete the image of a ship.

    • Rotate the blue lines using the right mouse button. Drag the Tobacco Leaf and the Smoking Pipe with the left mouse button to move the lines on those two objects up or down.

    • The puzzle will complete automatically once the image is correctly aligned. If you're having difficulty solving the puzzle, you can press the [Spacebar] key to skip it.

    • Solution.

  7. After you've completed the puzzle, press [Esc] to step away from the table, then press [B] to view your Deductions page.

    • At the Deductions page, you can attempt to combine clues to make a deduction. Sometimes, combining clues may give you multiple theories and you must select between the possible options to form a deduction.

    • Click a clue note to select it, then click another note to try to combine the two. If your clues are correctly combined, they will form a deduction on the page. Press space to toggle between all available clues and all completed deductions

      • At this time, you have enough clues to make one deduction.

      • First select "Notebook" then click "Break-in Attempts".

      • Click the completed deduction to see you've now found a new Task: Make an Ambush.

    • Exit the Cabin to return to the Garden.

      • When the quick-time event appears, press the [Q] key before the timer runs out.

      • Choose the line "Ring's Engraving".

    • Now you can ask about the "Ring's Owner" which prompts another quick-time event. Again, press [Q] before time runs out.

  7. Open your Casebook and select the Map tab. Click Baker Street to travel there now.

Part 5 - Enlisting Watson's Help at Baker Street

  1. Speak with Watson to ask for his help with your harpoon experiments. We'll go there momentarily, but there's still more to do here.

  2. Approach the overflowing shelves of Newspapers on the right side of the fireplace to examine the documents.

    • Compare the information from the Ring's Engraving, then select the proper document from the list on the right to research the ring.

    • Select the Newspaper article: "Dawson and Neligan are bankrupt."

    • Read both pages of the article, then press the [E] key to close the page.

  3. Before you can join Watson you'll need a harpoon. We'll get one soon, but for now let's question Neligan again with the information you found in the archives at Baker Street. Use the Map to travel to Scotland Yard.

      • A bar will appear at the bottom of the screen with a slider moving left and right and a white space in the middle.

      • Left click at the precise moment when the slider reaches the center space to throw the harpoon.

    • If you time your throw and aim correctly, the harpoon will strike the X. If not, simply Hold Breath and try again.

    • After each attempt, the center space will get slightly larger and easier to hit.

    • Solution.

  3. Once you've finished your experiment, press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine two of the clues to create a new deduction.

Part 9 - Interrogate the Second Suspect at Scotland Yard

  1. Once you arrive at Scotland Yard, take a few steps forward to speak to Inspector Lestrade.

  2. Go to the hallway and take the first door on the right to enter the Evidence Room.

  3. Inspect the left box on the table to take a look at Hurtley's Belongings.

    • Take the Boots and Stained Letter inside the drawer. You can also examine the Pen at the lower right corner of the drawer.

  4. Now inspect the right box on the table to re-examine Neligan's Belongings.

    • Click the Abbreviations inside the notebook to compare them with the Bond Certificate from your inventory.

    • Underline the correct abbreviation associated with the bond scrap.

    • Select the letters C.P.R. which stands for the title at the top of the bond, the Canadian Pacific Railway.

  5. Press [B] to open your Deductions page. Combine your new clues to form a new deduction.

    • Select the clues "Missing papers" and "Missing tin box" to make a deduction: "Stolen valuable papers."

    • Two of your completed deductions, "Stolen valuable papers" and "Retrieving the notebook" will automatically tie together to form a third deduction: "Neligan's motive."

    • Now combine the clues "Missing papers" with "Break-in attempts". Choose between the two possible theories: "Retrieving the notebook" or "Looking for papers."

    • The correct choice is "Looking for papers". After you select this theory, another two deductions "Stolen valuable papers" and "Looking for papers" will tie together to form yet another choice of theories.

    • Pick again between two choices; this time it's "Neligan's motive" or "Neligan's innocence."

    • The correct choice is "Neligan's innocence". Now that we've ruled out one of the suspects, it's time to continue our investigation!

    • The note on the table gives you three requirements to solving this puzzle:

      • You must pour all seven of the test tubes into the beaker.

      • The Blue reagent is poured first, two mystery reagents are poured afterwards, and the fourth reagent must be Orange.

      • The Colorless reagent must be poured after the Orange reagent.

    • Press [Spacebar] to view the page of clues again to combine another two.

      • This time, select the clues "Liam Hurtley's Letter" and "Judith Carey's Confession." which combine into: "Harmless flirting".

      • You must now choose between the two theories "Desperate Jealousy" and "Harmless Flirting".

      • The correct selection is "Harmless Flirting". Choosing this option will also form the deduction: "Hurtley's Innocence"

      • Again you must make another choice. Select either the theory "Hurtley's Motive" or "Hurtley's Innocence.

      • The correct final decision is "Hurtley's Innocence".

    • Holmes will mention he should meet with Wiggins after the deductions are finished. Open the Map and travel to Baker Street.

Part 14 - Prepare a Disguise at Baker Street

Part 15 - Meet The Sailor at the Sea Witch Pub

  1. You'll find Patrick Cairns sitting at the table in front of the fireplace. Click him to start another minigame.

    • To beat Cairns, you'll need to pay attention to his facial expression and to your Stamina meter.

      • Cairns makes three different faces: He grimaces when he's about to push, cringes when he's trying to restrain, and has a blank face when he's idle.

    • Time your pushes, restrains, and waiting to match his actions:

      • When Cairns pushes, hold down the Right mouse button to Restrain against his push.

      • When Cairns idles, click the Left mouse button repeatedly to push his hand towards the table.

  15. Walk to the waiting carriage behind the train station. Click the luggage at the back of the carriage to search the Portable Archives.

    • Position the local map from Evesham Station (the upper layer map) over the matching area on Holmes' more detailed map (the lower layer map).

    • Left-click and drag either map to move it. Look for landmarks like lakes and roads to help you find the correct orientation.

    • Solution.

  16. Go back to the train platform. Click the door to the Left Luggage room to begin another puzzle.

    • Just like the previous lock puzzles, you must rotate the lock segments to align the pattern.

    • Use the mousewheel to select a lock section. Left click and drag to rotate the selected section or right click and drag to rotate all lock sections simultaneously.

    • Remember the easiest way to solve these puzzles is to focus on the short horizontal lines at the right end of the lock.

    • Solution.

  17. Once the puzzle is solved you can enter the Left Luggage room.

  18. Activate your investigative talent with the [T] key as soon as you enter the room.

  3. Press the [B] key to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the two clues "Mexicans vs Chileans" and "WEA Coal and Chileans" to form the theory: "No Grudge".

    • This theory automatically ties together with the others to form the deduction "Theft" however, there is still more evidence needed to reach the correct conclusion.

    • /ul>

  4. Exit the building and walk to the train platform. Go down to the railroad track, follow it a few feet to the right, then open the gate across the tracks.

  5. Examine the Remains of a Building at the end of the right forked path.

  6. Beside the rubble is a cart full of crates. Walk near the cart, then activate Holmes' investigative talent when the icon appears.

  7. Return to the train platform and talk to the Evesham Station Master who is still beside the bicycle.

    • Ask the station master about the "Disassembled warehouse".

  8. With this new information, you're ready to make some new deductions! Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the two clues "Stolen rail track" and "Rails to mines are missing" to create the theory: "Road into the mines"

    • Now combine the clues "Stolen rail track" and "Old railway to the quarry" to form another theory: "Railway to quarry".

    • Select the correct theory to make your deduction; remember the evidence from the heavy tracks in the roads at all three locations!

      • The answer is Railway to Quarry.

    • Now that we know where the train ended up, we can finalize other theories that we passed on before.

    • First, choose between the theories we made at Chesterfield: "Passed Chesterfield" or "Missed Chesterfield".

      • The answer is Passed Chesterfield. The train would have had to pass Chesterfield in order to reach the quarry.

    • Next, choose between the two theories made at the Beach: "Could be sunk" or "Cannot be sunk".

      • The answer is Could be sunk. The train could reach the quarry if it had gone over the stolen rails, which were later re-removed.

      • Now four of your theories (Passed Chesterfield, Railway to quarry, Barges, and Could be sunk) will combine to form a single deduction: Was Sunk.

    • Thirdly, choose between the theories made at the Mines: "Concealment" or "Sabotage".

      • The answer is Sabotage. Now that we've deduced the train went to the quarry, it couldn't have possibly been concealed within the collapsed mine.

      • Because we still have the incomplete theory "Theft" from Mycroft's telegram, it will conflict with our current theory "Sabotage". Don't worry, though, we'll be able to clear that problem shortly with more evidence!

  9. Open the map and travel once again to Doncaster station.

Part 9 - Return to Doncaster Station

  1. Enter the Waiting Hall to confront the mysterious foreign stranger.

      • Select the line: Mexican Cigars.

    • Next ask "What is your business here?"

  2. After you're finished speaking with the man, press [B] to open your Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Suspicious Mexican at Doncaster" and "WEA Coal and Chileans" to create a new theory: "Mexicans are angry."

    • Choose one of the two theories to form a deduction: "Mexicans are angry" or "No grudge" (the theory we found after receiving Mycroft's telegram).

    • The correct choice is Mexicans are angry.

    • This theory will connect with the earlier theory "Chileans were left" (the theory we made after questioning Mr. Robinson at Bridlington station) to form the deduction Mexican Trap.

    • At this point, all of your deductions should combine to create the final conclusion: Mexicans drowned Chileans.

    • Click the conclusion, then make your morale choice to decide how you should conclude the case, Blind Justice or Political Game. Select whichever one you prefer.

Part 10 - Conclusion

  1. At the conclusion, Watson and Holmes will prepare a trap for two of the criminals. As soon as the cinematic is over, get ready for another quick time event!

  2. You have three choices to make before running out of time:

    • Shoot the murderer in the head, killing him instantly.

      • Left-click the red circle over the man's head to shoot.

    • Wait until the murderer shoots and kills the Doncaster station master, then shoot the murderer in the head before he kills Holmes.

    • Combine the clues "Stolen notes" and "Golden knife" to create a new theory, "Valuable secret".

      • The theories "Valuable secret" and "Blinkhorn's humiliation" automatically tie together to form the deduction: Motive: Vengeance.

    • Click the final Conclusion: Blinkhorn (Ice-knife).

  17. You must now make the decision to either Condemn or Absolve the murderer.

    • Move the Picture off the wall to reveal the Safe.

  7. Go back to Lady Brackenstall and ask her if she can open "The safe".

    • Combine the clues "Two Glasses" and "Glass with beeswing" to form two possible theories: "Two People" or "Three People".

    • Next, select the clues "Dead Body" and "Fireplace Grate" to create the theory "Deadly Accident".

    • Select "Dead Body" again with "Bent Poker" to form another theory: "Poker Blow".

  3. Click Toby, the dog who is sitting by the window, to bring him along as a companion.

  4. Open the Map and travel back to Abbey Grange.

Part 4 - Sniffing Out Clues with Toby at Abbey Grange

  1. When you arrive at Abbey Grange, you'll see the room through Toby's eyes (and nose).

  2. Follow the traces of the glowing scent trails to the French Window, then click the window to go outside. Use Toby's scent skills to locate the three clues in the garden:

    • Follow the green scent trail along the garden path, around the fountain, and to the Shed. Click the Shed door to locate Scent Clue #1.

    • Turn left and follow the scent trail further to the Well. Click the base of the Well to note Scent Clue #2.

    • Take the right path to the stone Wall. Click the bottom of the Wall to find Scent Clue #3.

  3. Check all of the areas that Toby located, starting with the garden Shed. Open the Shed door to look inside.

    • Examine the Suitcase on the upper shelf, Toolbox on the lower shelf, and the Bags on the floor.

    • Take the Hook on the bench at the lower left corner of the screen.

    • Click the Windlass to lower the hook into the well and pull out the object.

    • Open the bag, then pick up the Fork inside to take a closer look.

      • Rotate the fork to its back side. Click the Coat of Arms at the top of the handle.

  5. Lastly, examine the bottom of the Wall to the left of where Toby is waiting.

  6. Return inside the house through the main entrance. Click Inspector Lestrade to talk to him once again.

    • Inform Lestrade that "I have the stolen silverware".

  7. Enter the morning room and speak with Lady Brackenstall.

    • Tell her "Your silverware has been found."

  8. Talk to Theresa next and tell her about the "Silverware" as well.

    • Combine the clues "Silverware Found" and "Criminals Identified".

      • Choose between the two resulting theories: "Robbery is the Motive" and "Imitated Robbery".

      • The stolen silverware hidden in the well proves that this is a case of Imitated Robbery.

    • With this new information, you can solve all your remaining theories.

      • Now that we know the robbery is faked, it means that the Randalls were framed. The correct choice is Randalls Blamed.

      • Additionally, since the Randalls have been ruled out as suspects, we can infer that the crime was committed not by those three criminals, but by Two People instead.

      • This theory will tie together automatically with your other completed theories to form the deduction Murderous Visitor.

      • Lastly, since we've deduced that the home was visited by a mysterious person, yet Lady Brackenstall has no known friends, she must be Acquainted with a Sailor from the ship she travelled to England in.

        • These completed theories will create a new Task: Look for Sailor.

  10. Open the Map and travel back to Baker Street.

Part 3 - The Crime Scene at Woodman's Lee Cabin

  1. When you enter the cabin, turn left and examine the wall shelf to take a closer look.

    • Turn on Sherlock's talent View (by pressing [T]) and move your cursor over the blank space on the right side of the shelf.

    • Click the Outline in the Dust to inspect it.

    • At this point, Holmes will deduce that a small box has disappeared from this place on the shelf. He will "imagine" the box instead. You can toggle Imagination on or off by pressing the [F] key.

  6. A minigame will start after you collect the evidence from the Tobacco Pouch

    • Arrange the blue lines to complete the image of a ship.

    • Rotate the blue lines using the right mouse button. Drag the Tobacco Leaf and the Smoking Pipe with the left mouse button to move the lines on those two objects up or down.

    • The puzzle will complete automatically once the image is correctly aligned. If you're having difficulty solving the puzzle, you can press the [Spacebar] key to skip it.

    • Solution.

  7. After you've completed the puzzle, press [Esc] to step away from the table, then press [B] to view your Deductions page.

    • At the Deductions page, you can attempt to combine clues to make a deduction. Sometimes, combining clues may give you multiple theories and you must select between the possible options to form a deduction.

    • Click a clue note to select it, then click another note to try to combine the two. If your clues are correctly combined, they will form a deduction on the page. Press space to toggle between all available clues and all completed deductions

      • At this time, you have enough clues to make one deduction.

      • First select "Notebook" then click "Break-in Attempts".

      • Click the completed deduction to see you've now found a new Task: Make an Ambush.

    • Exit the Cabin to return to the Garden.

    • Walk towards the constable with the magnifying glass near the garden path.

  1. Follow the dirt path to the upper level of the Garden, then click Mrs. Carey to ask her a couple new questions.

    • Select the dialogue options "Peter's private papers" and "Was Peter a smoker?"

  2. Go down the stairs and enter the Cabin.

    • You'll find a rack on the center wall (above the open chest) inside the Cabin where you can take a Harpoon.

    • Inspect the bookshelf beside the harpoon rack and take a look at the Ship Logs.

      • Select the August tab above the right page. Take the torn Bond Certificate from the page.

  3. Open the Map again and travel to the Whitechapel Butcher.

Part 8 - Whitechapel Butcher & A Brief Stop at Baker Street

  1. Click on Watson to speak with him and begin the experiment.

  2. The goal for this minigame is to impale the pig with the harpoon.

    • First aim the cross-hairs over the red "X" on the pig carcass.

    • Left click to Hold Breath, which will focus Holmes' aim.

      • A bar will appear at the bottom of the screen with a slider moving left and right and a white space in the middle.

      • Left click at the precise moment when the slider reaches the center space to throw the harpoon.

    • If you time your throw and aim correctly, the harpoon will strike the X. If not, simply Hold Breath and try again.

    • After each attempt, the center space will get slightly larger and easier to hit.

    • Solution.

  3. Once you've finished your experiment, press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine two of the clues to create a new deduction.

    • Select and combine the two clues "Strength requirement" and "Pinned to the wall".

    • You must choose between one of two theories: "Feat of strength" or "Lucky throw"

    • The correct choice is the "Feat of strength".

    • Two of your completed deductions, "Stolen valuable papers" and "Retrieving the notebook" will automatically tie together to form a third deduction: "Neligan's motive."

    • Now combine the clues "Missing papers" with "Break-in attempts". Choose between the two possible theories: "Retrieving the notebook" or "Looking for papers."

    • The correct choice is "Looking for papers". After you select this theory, another two deductions "Stolen valuable papers" and "Looking for papers" will tie together to form yet another choice of theories.

    • Pick again between two choices; this time it's "Neligan's motive" or "Neligan's innocence."

      • Click the Sawdust inside the package.

  4. When you're done inspecting the box, Watson will take out his pistol to shoot the package.

    • Right-click to aim down the sights of your pistol.

    • Carefully point the muzzle of the gun towards the bottom of the package, then left-click to fire.

  5. Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Mines are collapsed" and "Mines were blasted" to create another two theories: Concealment and Sabotage.

    • We still don't have enough evidence yet to confirm which theory is correct, so we'll come back to that decision later.

  6. Continue up the hill to the two sheds. Open the door on the left and enter the Mine Guards shed.

  7. Examine the Metal Box on the floor at the rear left corner of the room.

    • Click the Lock at the front of the box to start another puzzle.

      • This puzzle should be familiar by now: rotate the lock sections to connect the lines.

      • Use the Mousewheel to select a lock section. Left-click and drag to rotate the selected section. Right-click and drag to rotate all of the lock sections simultaneously.

      • Just like before, the easiest way to solve the puzzle is to focus on the horizontal lines at the right end of the lock.

      • Solution.

    • After the puzzle is solved, take the Documents from the opened box.

  8. Open the Map and travel back to Evesham.

Part 8 - Return to Evesham Station

  1. Go to the Ticket Office, then enter the station master's private office through the side door.

  2. Use the Telegraph on the table to contact Mycroft. Mycroft will respond with a document on the WEA Coal Company.

  3. Press the [B] key to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the two clues "Mexicans vs Chileans" and "WEA Coal and Chileans" to form the theory: "No Grudge".

    • This theory automatically ties together with the others to form the deduction "Theft" however, there is still more evidence needed to reach the correct conclusion.

    • /ul>

  4. Exit the building and walk to the train platform. Go down to the railroad track, follow it a few feet to the right, then open the gate across the tracks.

  5. Examine the Remains of a Building at the end of the right forked path.

  6. Beside the rubble is a cart full of crates. Walk near the cart, then activate Holmes' investigative talent when the icon appears.

    • Focus on the Multiple Traces on the ground leading to the metal gate.

    • Click the Heavy Vehicle Traces in the dirt to take a closer look.

      • Examine either the upper or lower Heavy Traces, then left-click it to use your Measuring Tape.

      • Left-click and drag the tape from the top trace in the ground to the bottom trace in order to measure the distance between them.

  7. Return to the train platform and talk to the Evesham Station Master who is still beside the bicycle.

    • Ask the station master about the "Disassembled warehouse".

  8. With this new information, you're ready to make some new deductions! Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the two clues "Stolen rail track" and "Rails to mines are missing" to create the theory: "Road into the mines"

    • Now combine the clues "Stolen rail track" and "Old railway to the quarry" to form another theory: "Railway to quarry".

    • Select the correct theory to make your deduction; remember the evidence from the heavy tracks in the roads at all three locations!

      • The answer is Railway to Quarry.

    • Now that we know where the train ended up, we can finalize other theories that we passed on before.

    • First, choose between the theories we made at Chesterfield: "Passed Chesterfield" or "Missed Chesterfield".

      • The answer is Passed Chesterfield. The train would have had to pass Chesterfield in order to reach the quarry.

    • Next, choose between the two theories made at the Beach: "Could be sunk" or "Cannot be sunk".

      • The answer is Could be sunk. The train could reach the quarry if it had gone over the stolen rails, which were later re-removed.

      • Now four of your theories (Passed Chesterfield, Railway to quarry, Barges, and Could be sunk) will combine to form a single deduction: Was Sunk.

    • Thirdly, choose between the theories made at the Mines: "Concealment" or "Sabotage".

      • The answer is Sabotage. Now that we've deduced the train went to the quarry, it couldn't have possibly been concealed within the collapsed mine.

      • Because we still have the incomplete theory "Theft" from Mycroft's telegram, it will conflict with our current theory "Sabotage". Don't worry, though, we'll be able to clear that problem shortly with more evidence!

  9. Open the map and travel once again to Doncaster station.

Part 9 - Return to Doncaster Station

  1. Enter the Waiting Hall to confront the mysterious foreign stranger.

      • Select the line: Mexican Cigars.

    • Next ask "What is your business here?"

  2. After you're finished speaking with the man, press [B] to open your Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Suspicious Mexican at Doncaster" and "WEA Coal and Chileans" to create a new theory: "Mexicans are angry."

    • Choose one of the two theories to form a deduction: "Mexicans are angry" or "No grudge" (the theory we found after receiving Mycroft's telegram).

    • The correct choice is Mexicans are angry.

    • This theory will connect with the earlier theory "Chileans were left" (the theory we made after questioning Mr. Robinson at Bridlington station) to form the deduction Mexican Trap.

    • At this point, all of your deductions should combine to create the final conclusion: Mexicans drowned Chileans.

    • Click the conclusion, then make your morale choice to decide how you should conclude the case, Blind Justice or Political Game. Select whichever one you prefer.

Part 10 - Conclusion

  1. At the conclusion, Watson and Holmes will prepare a trap for two of the criminals. As soon as the cinematic is over, get ready for another quick time event!

  2. You have three choices to make before running out of time:

    • Shoot the murderer in the head, killing him instantly.

      • Left-click the red circle over the man's head to shoot.

    • Wait until the murderer shoots and kills the Doncaster station master, then shoot the murderer in the head before he kills Holmes.

  3. Shoot the murderer in the hand before he has a chance to fire in order to disarm him and avoid any more bloodshed.

    • Immediately left-click the red circle over the killer's hand to shoot it.

    • This action also awards the "Sharpshooter" trophy.

  15. Open the Map and travel back to Baker Street.

Part 8 - More Experiments at Baker Street

  1. Go to the Analysis Table to assemble the Metal Cube (from the Domum Hadriano cabin at Saint Albans).

    • Arrange all of the cubes in the correct position to connect them together.

    • The red cube Mould Part and the grey cube beneath it are already in the correct spots, so you only need to solve the remaining 10 cubes.

    • Right-click and drag to rotate the entire puzzle horizontally. Hold the [Q] key while dragging to rotate the puzzle vertically.

    • Left-click a Mould Part to select it. You can left-click a different cube to swap their positions or right-click and drag to rotate the cube individually.

    • Pay attention to the indentations and flat sides of the cube.

      • The flat side of the cube faces outward and does not connect with any other cubes. The flat sides also give a hint to where the cube belongs in the puzzle.

        • For example, if the top of the cube is flat, you know that this cube belongs at the top of the puzzle. Conversely, if the bottom of the cube is flat, then the cube should be in the bottom row.

        • Additionally, all of the cubes in the top row have a large section cut out of one corner. You must turn the cubes so that the cut-out corners face the center of the puzzle.

      • An indented side can only connect with the protruding side of an adjacent cube.

    • Solution.

  2. After the puzzle is solved, you'll have a completed mould ready. Mix the ingredients on the analysis table to create a plaster.

    • Pour the Water into the Melting Pot.

    • Click a shard to select it. Move the shard around with your cursor or left-click to put the shard down on the table.

    • Start with the pieces that have flat sides first. After you've completed the border, fill in the broken shards in the middle.

    • Solution.

  4. Once you've fixed the plate, Holmes will take a look at the resulting photograph.

    • Drag the cloth across the paper to reveal the picture.

    • Click the following objects in the photograph:

      • Archaeologist (1) sitting at the left side of the table.

      • Pyramids (2) in the background of the picture.

      • Ice (3) in the bucket atop the table.

      • The Salt (4) beside the ice bucket.

      • Ice Cream (5) in Sir Rodney's and the archaeologist's hands.

      • Rodney Bentcliffe (6) himself.

      • Inscription (7) at the top right corner of the photo.

    • Solution.

  5. Now that you're finished with all your experiments, press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Glass plate negative" and "Salt and ice" to create the theory "Ice trial".

    • Pour the Liquid with Alkaloid onto the Florem Diabolica to open the plant, then place the bottle back on the table.

    • Place one of the Caterpillars on the Carlina Inebriare.

      • This should set off a chain reaction where the Dionaea Carnivorus (left plant) snatches the caterpillar, aggravating the Carlina Inebriare (middle plant) to shoot spikes at the Florem Diabloca (right plant), causing this plant to release a large gas cloud of toxic spores.

  2. Press [B] to open the Deductions page once again.

    • Combine the clues "Deadly precision" and "Missing deadly plants".

      • Choose between the two resulting theories: "Sect's schemes" or "Sect is not involved".

      • The correct choice is Sect is not involved.

      • Just like we confirmed before at The Divine Syndicate, the Guru's testimony matches all the evidence that, while they were involved in the theft, the Sect did not murder Mr. Dunne.

      • While we did find proof they were experimenting chemically, the unlocked room at the Syndicate's temple indicate that their mixtures were harmless fertilizers and not-so-harmless opium.

      • The hidden bottle containing the alkaloid and the evidence of caterpillar experiments took place at Kew Gardens, limiting our suspects to the three botonists.

    • Press [spacebar] to return to the clues. This time, combine "Deadly precision" and "Albert's Ambition".

      • Choose between the two resulting theories: "Albert's lack of experience" and "Albert's studies".

      • The correct theory is Albert's lack of experience.

      • All evidence points to Albert being inept and uninterested in botony. He lacks the experience to perform such a dangerous and precise experiment.

    • Lastly, combine "Deadly precision" and "White's studies".

      • Choose again between the two possible theories that appear: "White's lack of experience" and "White's knowledge".

      • The correct theory is White's lack of experience.

      • While a skilled student, she may not have had the biological expertise to know how to handle the deadly plants.

      • Click the Cylinder at the center of the revolver.

      • Turn the gun to look down the barrel, then open the Barrel Catch. Click the empty Shells at the back of the lifted cylinder.

  4. Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Common statement" and "Leighton's statements" to create the theory Imaginary Man.

    • Next, add the clues "Old acquaintance" and "Lootless" to create another theory Personal Motive.

    • Thirdly, select the clues "Leighton's revolver" and "Two victims" to form the theory Double Murder.

    • Add "Leighton's revolver" again with "Common statement" to create the theory Compelling Evidence.

    • Lastly, combine "Leighton's revolver" one more time with "Different shots" to create two possible theories: Simultaneous shots or Firing position.

      • The correct choice is Simultaneous Shots.

      • It's unlikely that Mr. Turner would be able to tell the shots apart that were made at slightly different positions in a small alley, however two guns firing at the same time would make a much louder and more distinctive sound.

      • Additionally, only this theory can allow us to access an important piece of evidence later on in the case.

  5. Use the Map to travel to Baker Street.

Part 3 - Baker Street

  1. Go to the Encyclopedias bookcase to search the Archives for information on the bracelet.

    • Under the sub-tybe Art and Architecture, click the article Antique Art of British Museum then press [E] to continue.

  2. Turn to the stack of Newspapers beside the fireplace to research more information.

    • Click the arrow beside the date to change the year to 1885.

    • Select the article Hellenistic Treasures Stolen.

Part 4 - Pawn Shop

  1. Go around the corner and walk past the man sitting on the barrel. Look up and to the right to find the sign to the Pawn Shop.

  2. Click the Door to take a closer look. Use the key you found on Mr. Butler's person to open the lock and go inside.

  3. Examine the Shelves on the left wall.

    • Click the Climbing Equipment. Note that you can't take it now, but it is marked as an Object of Interest for later.

  4. Walk behind the counter and examine the next set of Shelves on the back wall.

    • Click the Flare Pistol. Like the climbing equipment, this item becomes marked as an Object of Interest.

  5. Inspect the drawers behind the Counter.

    • Open the Left Drawer. Pick up the Necklace for a close-up view.

    • Next, open the Right Drawer and examine the Account Book contained within.

  6. Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Butler's jewels" and "Two victims" to create the theory "Burglary Motive".

    • Choose between the new theory "Burglary Motive" and the one of your earlier theories from Scotland Yard, "Personal Motive".

      • The correct theory is Burglary Motive.

      • Based on the evidence from the pawn shop and the research in the archives, this crime is undoubtedly related to the priceless museum artifacts, the Hellenistic treasures.

  7. Open the Map and travel back to Half Moon Street.

Part 4 - Return to Half Moon Street

  1. Go to the crime scene, then press [F] to use Holmes' imagination skill. (The imagination icon will only be visible here if you've already selected the theory Simultaneous Shots.)

    • Click the left gunman, Mr. Butler to imagine the trajectory of his two shots.

    • You can see that the second shot hit the victim Vercotti, but the first shot struck the brick wall behind him.

  2. Walk to the glowing area on the wall, and click to try to examine it. Holmes states that he needs an item to see higher.

  3. Turn around and go to the lamp on the barrel. Pick up the Pole leaning against the wall between the barrel and the sacks.

  4. Reactivate Holmes' imagination if necessary, then return to the glowing section of the wall behind Vercotti. Click the Wall to take a closer look with the lantern attached to the pole.

    • Move the light to the middle of the wall, just above the horizontal line of concrete. Click the Bullet Impact mark on the wall.

  5. Press the [B] key to open the Deductions page again.

    • Select the clues "Two victims" and "Third shot" to create a possible theory: "Crossfire".

    • Now choose between the two available theories, "Crossfire" or "Double Murder".

      • The correct theory is Crossfire.

      • The bullet hole in the wall proves that a third shot was fired as Vercotti and Butler shot at each other.

    • Next, combine "Third shot" and "Leighton's statements" to receive a new task: Disappearing Man.

  6. Return to Constable Marrow to enlist his help with a few hide-and-seek exercises.

    • Your perspective will switch to that of the Constable. The goal here is to search the alley of Half Moon street and find Holmes, who is hiding in the dark, three times.

      • The first time, simply walk straight ahead until you reach the wall. Holmes is in the alcove and leaning close against the wall. Talk to Holmes to "find" him.

      • In the next attempt, immediately turn left at the very start of the alley. You'll find Holmes crouched right around the corner.

      • Lastly, walk all the way to the Mr. Turner's apartment door. Turn left and take a few steps forward. Look to the left to find Holmes again.

    • Press [B] to reopen the Deductions page.

      • Combine the clues "Corners in sight" and "Leighton's statements" to receive a new task: Up the walls.

    • Use the Map to return to the Pawn Shop

  2. Press [F] to activate Holmes' imagination.

    • Select which of the three possible routes the man took to escape up the wall.

      • The street lights illuminate the path at the end of the left wall, while the moon illuminates the right wall.

      • The only remaining path is the middle of the left wall. Click Climb the Wall at that location to begin the minigame.

    • To scale the wall, you must complete a series of quick-time events.

      • First press the [D] key before the timer runs out to raise Holmes' right hand.

      • Rapidly click the left-mouse button until the red circle shrinks within the white circle to climb upward.

      • Now press the [A] key to raise Holmes' left hand.

      • Again, left-click multiple times as quickly as possible to shrink the red circle.

      • Repeat this process of alternating between pressing either the [A] or [D] key and rapidly left-clicking until Watson gives up searching for you. If you are too slow, you will have to start over.

    • After the cinematic, open the Door in front of the constable to enter the attic.

    • Click the thread on the tray to view it under the magnifier.

      • Scroll the middle mouse button down twice to focus the magnification, then click the thread to examine it.

    • Next, examine the three Hairs to compare them; click the Human Hair, the Horse Hair, and the Unknown Hair.

  2. Press [B] to open the Deductions page.

    • Combine the clues "Wall climber" and "Exotic animal hair" to create the theory "Circus Acrobat".

    • Choose between the two possible theories: "Circus Acrobat" or "Imaginary Man".

      • The correct theory is Circus Acrobat.

      • Holmes' experiments at Half Moon Street and the evidence recovered from the attic prove the presence of the third man.

    • Next, combine "Wall climber" and "Leighton's statements".

    • Choose which of the two theories is correct: "Leighton's Innocence" or "Compelling Evidence.

      • The correct theory is Leighton's Innocence.

    • Travel back to Baker Street to prepare a more suitable outfit.

  6. Go to the Wardrobe in Holmes' bedroom to put on an appropriate disguise.

    • Pick an outfit that would fit in with criminals you're meeting at the Circus: poor clothing, a hat, and facial hair.

    • For example, the Bandit Outfit, Hair and Hat #11, and Facial Hair #14 would work.

  7. Once you have your outfit ready, exit the wardrobe, open the Map, and travel to the Duval Bros Circus.

Hi cagrie123,

Uh oh! If he's not coming around yet, it may mean you skipped an important step. Because there's quite a lot of investigating in between the first and second time you see him, it would be difficult for me to pinpoint what exactly you might be missing. My guess would be that you have an uncompleted theory, or perhaps the wrong theory chosen?

If it's not too much trouble, I recommend double-checking the walkthrough. Hopefully you can find something that you may have overlooked before.

Let me know if you need more help!

How do I drag the boot down in case 1? Is it supposed to touch the ground? On the blue circle which says Check Boots, I click and hold down the left mouse button and move my mouse downwards but the boot does not move at all. Instead, the surrounding area moves in a random and violent motion until it suddenly stops after awhile. No matter how many times I try, this happens. So how do I drag the boot down?

Reply

To clarify, it is for the first time (i.e. Peter Carey's boots.)

Reply

Yes, I can do everything except to drag. In fact, I can't drag anything. Even earlier in the puzzle I can't drag the 2 things so I skipped it. I click and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse down but no matter what, the boot stays suspended in mid-air and does not move at all.

Reply

Can somebody help please?

Reply

My whole game is lagging because my computer does not meet the minimum system requirements. I wonder if this is causing me to not be able to drag. I was able to rotate and do other actions despite the lag.
