Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena Walkthrough & Cheats

PC Download Browser Play

Overview: You play Samantha Swift, daring archaeologist, who is looking for rare artifacts for her museum. With some adversaries on her trail, will she survive her quest?

Finding Items: You find items like any other HOG but these are all hand drawn, cool, eh!  Not everyone will have the same list of items to find so not everything will be circled. Only tool (inventory) items will be circled.

Note: If you replay the game, even the items will have moved to different spots! The only items that don't move are inventory (tool) items, museum items, and hints.

Blue Items: Items listed in blue need tools to uncover them, in other words, you must find one of the other objects listed to uncover it. (If you played Hidden Expedition: Amazon you are familiar with this technique.)

Cursor: When your cursor turns blue with two small gears that means you have found the area needed to obtain the blue item.

Note: These areas are marked with a Blue X.

Hints: You start the level with three hints and can accumulate more by finding Zeus' lightning bolt(s).

Note: The ones I found (there may be more) are circled with in Green.

Scanner: Once you've found the scanner, you can click on a word it will show you the silhouette.

Puzzles: When your cursor turns green with a magnifying glass, there is a puzzle there. You may have to return to that area later to complete it.

Note: I've marked puzzles with a Yellow X.
