As you earn more points in each scene, you will earn more trophies, and the scene will get a bit more challenging each time you reach a new trophy level. The highest total score possible is 2 million points and you can earn up to 5 trophies in each scene.

What are the Super Clues?

Super Clues are shown with blue text in the scenes. These require players to perform 2 or more actions in the scene to complete the super clue.

Mini Games are available after finding all clues in certain scenes. You may be asked to discover a certain number of coins, or re-assemble a ripped note. Mini games count as a bonus for the scene they are available in. The faster you complete the mini game, the higher the earned bonus for that scene will be.

What are artifacts?
