Deadly Snowstorm

Last Updated:
Getting Started

Warning - Does include spoilers, especially for the harder to find objects. We don't usually reveal all object locations, but will help with some of the harder to find ones.

If you have never played games like this before, basically you need to tap around the screen to discover hidden objects, to interact with other characters and to navigate through the game.

In Chapter 1 you get to the Hotel and you have your first hidden object task. Get to the reception and talk to Otto, he will tell you about a missing key that you have to find. Tap the sparkly cloud when you see it to start to look for the hidden objects.

Reception, Talk to Otto

There are a number of objects that you need to find including the Key for Otto. It would totally spoil the game if we pointed out each one, but we will say, do remember to click on things that can be opened, such as drawers, cupboard doors, boxes, bags, purses and anything that could contain more objects, as not all of them are readily visible when you first start looking. Don't forget the objects you are looking for could also be pictures on paintings for example...

First Hidden Object Task

... I think we've said too much already, but if there is anything specific that you cannot find, please ask us a question on this page, and we'll try to suggest where it could be found.

After you have found the key and all the objects (the most difficult ones are the items printed in red) tap the link at the bottom of the screen to go back to the Reception and give it to Otto.

Notice: Tapping the Screen and Using Hints uses energy! Tap wisely!

Head to Front Yard
Otto directs you to go to the Front Yard for your next task, if you are stuck, then check the map at any time to see where you are, but basically you need to go to the first floor, then you will see a link to the Front Yard.

In the post box you will find another collectible, an Italian Express Stamp.

The task is to find a hat and an umbrella outside in the front yard, Otto tells you they are covered in snow.

In the front yard you will see that everything is covered in snow, so tap away and try to reveal the umbrella and hat

Using Hints
The hint option becomes available constantly over time, use that to save some energy when looking for objects. Tapping the hint button at this point will tell you where to find either the top hap or umbrella directly.

You can then use some more hints, as they become available to help you find the second item.

After you have found the umbrella and hat, head back to Otto at the reception.

Play Solitaire

After you have given the umbrella and hat to Otto, go to the fireplace room where you can play your first mini game, Solitaire. If you are not sure how to play then I suggest that you head over to google and tap in hoe to play solitaire! There will be a ton of guides on how to play this.

If you can complete the mini game you will get an energy achievement award. Or you can choose the skip the mini game and not ged the energy award.

Cupboard - Photo Album
After Solitaire, head back to the hall and search for the missing photo album in the Cupboard.

This is the second main hidden object task, everything you need to find is listed at the top of the page, with the more hard to find items listed in red.

Tap the mirror to reveal the code for the safe, 5391. Use the dial to spin the numbers round then tap the handle to open the door. You can also tap the handle to reset the dials if you entered the numbers in incorrectly.

To find the photo album, you will need to turn on the torch, and tap the mirror and it will reveal that the red book near the mirror is the photo album.

The cufflink you can find in the red cufflink box, near the lemons.

The insect will only be revealed after you tap the amber stone that is on top of the grapes, and you will see it fossilized in the amber.

After you have completed this hidden object quest, head to floor 2, room 5. Some sparkles will appear next to the chest of drawers, tap those to tart the next part of the game.

Chest of Drawers in Room 5
Here you'll need to find the keys to open all the drawers, and also a drawer handle for the top drawer. Search the different drawers to find the items you need to complete this section of the game. Once you have the keys and handles drag them to their correct positions on the chest of drawers.

The handle for drawer 1 can be found in drawer 3.

There is a list of items that need to be found at the top of the screen.

You'll need to use the oil to open draw number 2. Drag the oil can which is the left of the chest of drawers to drawer 2 to use some oil and release the draw from being stuck. In there you will find some of the remaining objects.

Wear the Hat
Once you have found all the hidden objects in the chest of drawers, move the screen so that you are facing the mirror and put on the hat and go back to floor 1 and in to the hall for breakfast.

After some dialogue you will need to head to room 10, floor 2 to check on Professor Kinsky. Then head back downstairs and talk to Otto who tells you to go to reception to look for the spare key.

Search for the key
Tap the sparkly cloud to start the next hidden object challenge. Remember to look in all the drawers and tap anything that you think may open up, like boxes.

Because every tap action takes energy, I suggest that you take a good look around before clicking anything! Don't forget to look in the pictures too! You can tap the top of the bag cover, to close the bag in this puzzle.

Now you'll need to head back to floor 2, room 10 as you would have found just about anything except for the key! Time to break the door down.

Kitchen to get knife
After going back to the room, Otto asks you to go to the kitchen to find a knife. Once you get to the kitchen search for the knife. In the kitchen, first click the door and then go through it. The knife is somewhere in there.

Look in the mirror to the right of the screen to find the kettle and the knife, but there are lots more objects that you need to find in this scene. And remember, a cider glass is not a cider glass until it has some cider in it! Open the lid to find the ladel - despite being able to see it sticking out of the big pot in the bottom right.

You can find the cuckoo by tapping the clock that is on it's side and turning the time to something o'clock, then cuckoo will then pop out.

Zoom into the green scales by tapping on it. You can then add weights on the scales to find the number 3. The coin is also in that scene. The coffee is too, but you'll have to open the draw to see it.

Return to Floor 2, room 10 once you are done.

You can now enter the room, and you'll get another achievement at this point for seeing your first corpse!

Head back to reception and use the telephone - the big box in the middle of the cupboard where all the keys are kept.

Fix the telephone

You'll now play a mini game where you have to connect all the wires to the corresponding colors without any of the wires crossing each other.

After that is done, head to the front yard, scroll to the right and head for the gate and then the road. Open the gate by moving the locks.

Take a close look at the car in the snow, and tap the door to open it. You'll find a photo. Head back to the hotel and you'll find Otto.

Check Dr Hartmans Belongings

After a mini game to put a photo back together, you'll be directed to go to Floor 1, room 2, to participate in another hidden object round. don't forget, things can be opened and look in, other items can be unlocked etc... We have some more general searching tips here:
