Description

Mortimer is investigating a manor owned by his great-uncle Jerome. To get his eccentric machine working, he must locate the required objects, and put them in the right places around the house. After this, he must work out who sabotaged the machine, and why.

Gameplay is a variant of the object-finding genre, as you are presented with complete pictures of 4 objects on each screen, but on the screen itself these are split into small pieces. Thus you have to work out which fragments would fit one of the objects. You have 15 clicks to highlight pieces, for when you are stuck. Click randomly on the screen too many times and a ghost is summoned, to drift around the screen and partially block your view.

Completed objects each have a place, not necessarily on the room their fragments are found in. To complete each floor, you must find the correct places for them - this will often reveal new pieces.
