Overview: You play the character Catherine, the top student at the Magic Academy for young wizards. She receives an encrypted note in the form of an origami bird, but what does it say and where will it take her?

Gameplay: This is a different sort of hidden object game, instead of looking for items on a list, you are trying to find the objects that put back together various tools. The tools must then be used to navigate through the level to complete it and/or find other needed objects, these areas will glow.

Levels: You can switch between levels by clicking on the gold coins in the top right corner.

Map: You can return to the map by clicking Catherine's teleportation artifact in the upper right corner.

Objects: Each time you find a piece of an item, it will grey out the piece you just found, so you are only looking for the pieces that are still in full color.

I have number the items at the bottom and the right side with corresponding numbers in the screenshot for a quick reference of where to use them. If there is no number, then the item belongs in another area.

Puzzles: If there is a puzzle, gears will appear when you scroll over it.

Crystals: Each level has a different number of crystals that must be found.

The crystals are circled in blue.

Hints: Find hidden question marks in each location to get extra hints, for every 3 you find you get 1 hint. If you need more hints, click the small ?+ button underneath the ? button. It will take you to another area where you need to find 10 question marks.

The hints that I have found are circled in green.

Progress: you can follow your progress on each level by watching the blue bar above your inventory, you'll know that part of the level is complete with it shatters.
