1. Use Your Oculi
The game gives you two special lenses that you can use to discover aspects of the house the could not otherwise be seen using the naked eye. The first is the Oculus Infinitum which lets you see through surfaces. The second lens is the Oculus Tempus which allows you to view a living slice of time. These two are often crucial to solving numerous puzzles in the game. If you feel like you are stuck in the game, try looking at things using each of the two lenses and you just might find the clue you are looking for.
2. Analyze Every Item
There are several items in the game which you can pick up and bring with you. Players tend to just stuff these things into their inventory and wait for the game to give the cue on when they should be used. Don’t fall into that trap. Make it a habit to tap on the item you just picked up and analyze every aspect of it. You would be surprised by how many items can still be tinkered with in order to make them useful. You will also be able to discover sketches in this manner. Sketches are collectible items that can be viewed in the Achievements screen.
3. When in Doubt, Double Tap
The environment is usually a bit darker than you would like it to be so it will be easy to miss a few clues scattered about. Most of the time, the important items will only be subtly highlighted so you will need to pay close attention to everything on the screen. There are times when they are quite obvious, like a fancy ornament sitting in the middle of the room. Don’t wait for the game to spoon feed the clues to you. If you are having trouble finding the next clue no matter how hard you look, you could always try pawing through every single thing in the room until you get lucky. Just keep double tapping on everything to see if something lights up. It might be time consuming but at least you will get somewhere.
Solving puzzles created by the world’s most famous inventor is no mean feat, but with the help of our The House of Da Vinci tips and tricks, you will be able to do it!
