Description

Rome: Curse of the Necklace is a hidden object game where objects from a list must be found and clicked on 360º panoramic views of Rome's landmarks, within a time limit. The point of view can be panned around with the keyboard arrow keys, or with the mouse moving the globe in the middle of the interface at the bottom. Zooming in and out can be performed by the mouse scrolling wheel, or moving a interface slider with the cursor.

The list of objects appears as a translucent overlay on the bottom-right of the screen, where the items automatically disappear after finding and clicking on them on the locations. A feature that highlights the objects names, if they are present on the screen, can be turned off at the beginning of the game. The hint button moves the point of view, centering it in one of the required objects.

There are two modes, Tourist (no time limit) and Explorer. Jigsaw puzzles and other mini-games appear between chapters. In one of them, the objective is to find the differences between two similar images. A rendition of the traditional Italian card game called Scopa is included, with instructions.

Each location has a special object that have to be swapped later, for clues telling the history of a noble family and their involvement with a diamond necklace that has magical powers.
