The Hunger Games Adventures Walkthrough and Guide

Getting Started

The first screen you will see allows you to customise your character. You can pick a male or female character and choose their clothing and other apparel. This doesn't have a bearing on the gameplay, but of course your friends on Facebook will be able to see you, so make sure it's something you are happy with!

Tutorial:

The game begins with a simple tutorial. Katniss informs you that you narrowly evaded some guards by the fence. With that done, pick up the bow and arrow as instructed. Note that you can just mouse-over objects to pick them up - click the log to expose the bow, then mouse-over it to collect.

Then, a vulture mutt will appear. Click on it to engage the enemy. Note how your health drops during this encounter, but it's easy to take it out without too much trouble.

You will then be introduced to your character's Forest Escape. This is a camp that you can upgrade and customise, and is also the palce to catch food. You are instructed to buy a trap and then set it - you will then catch something and can take the food.

At this point, Katniss informs you that she'll meet you back at District 12.

You will then see the list of quests to the left-hand side of the screen. Use these icons to confirm that you want to visit Katniss, who you will find at the Bakery. Follow the other instructions from here on until you are returned to the Forest Escape.

NOTE: You should not try to pre-empt the objectives in this game. For example, At the start of Chapter 1 it is clear that Katniss is asking you to chop wood to build the Shelter. If you purchase the Shelter first, you will have to sell it again and re-buy it to trigger the next objective.

Forest Escape:

Your Forest Escape is centered around the Big Camp Fire. This is replenished with food once every hour, so visit it regularly to get $50 to add to your stash.

You initial Forest Escape is very small. You will notice how the areas around it are locked. The only way to unlock new areas is to collect Mockingjay Pins. You will also need to reach the requisite number of Goods before you are given access to the unlock.

XP:

Every time you perform virtually any action in the game, you are rewarded with XP. This includes chopping wood, collecting rocks, or completing quests, with XP varying depending on the difficulty of the task you have taken on.

Currency:

There are two simple currencies in The Hunger Games Adventures. The primary form of currency is Goods. These are picked up by exploring the game world, from things like the camp fire which regularly replenish with Goods, and by completing quests.

The other form of currency is Facebook Credits. These generally have to be purchased using real money, but are used to buy certain premium items in the game store. Normally these are things which would take a heck of a long time to unlock through normalmeans, but usually it is possible to get them for free.

Energy:

As with most Facebook adventure games, you are restricted to how much you can do by the Energy Meter. This has an initial maximum of 15 Energy, and takes 5 minutes to fill back up just a single point.

Sometimes you will get Energy for completing quests.

Once you have built a Shelter, you can recoup 10 Energy every 8 hours. To do this, simply click on the shelter once the timer has counted down. The amount of Energy required to complete quests increases as you progress through the game.

If you don't want the tree to grow back, cut it almost completely down but not completely. If it takes 8 strikes to cut it down do 6 or 7, it trims it down so you can see around it but it doesn't take it completely out and it won't grow back.

To expand your Forest escape, Mockingjay pins are no longer used. You will collect Discovery Maps at the end of quests. You will need these and goods (currency), to unlock further areas.

In reply to:
"I've been trying to clear space in my Forest Escape so that I have room to build things, but everything keeps growing back! How am I supposed to have room for things when the trees and rocks won't go away? I just built the Workshop and am now out of room. I've unlocked several spaces. I tried to place things where I had cut down a tree, but later, the tree is in front of the thing and I can't see/get to it."
They want you to get expansions.
