You are a new employee at a real estate agency. Apparently in this city, there are many properties with ghosts living in them! In Madorica Real Estate, you have to search for the only property that doesn’t have ghosts in the entire city.
Your job requires you to exorcise the ghosts in each room so that the new owners can live there in peace. Hints to beating the ghosts can be found around the rooms and from Mr. Madorica. If you use the hints to solve the puzzles and input the commands, even a newbie real estate agent like you can use magic!
Search for hints, jot down notes on your floor plan maps, and seek out magic to exorcise all the ghosts!
Hints Hidden Around the Rooms
When you start the game, you will be standing in a room somewhere on the floor plan map. The ghosts are keeping you trapped in the room. In this room, you cannot move freely around. You can only do the following:
1. Look around to find hints
2. Close your eyes and cast a spell.
▲Look closely at the hints written on the walls to find magic commands.
▲Some hints cannot be found unless you look up or down.
▲You may need to match hints on the screen to hints on the floor plan.
Enter Commands to Use Your Magic
▲By holding down the L or R buttons, you can close your eyes and go to the command input screen.
There are different kinds of magic, so we’ll explain a few of them.
Spell of Transportation
The most basic magic in the game. Use this magic to freely move around the rooms.
Spell of Clarity
Sometimes hints are hidden in places that cannot be seen just by looking. Use this spell to see through the items blocking them!
Spell of Energization
When a room’s lights are out, use this magic to brighten the place. However, you have to read the hints very carefully!
Spell of Exorcism
Each room has a mysterious enemy that acts as the stage’s boss. Until you defeat the boss, you will not be able to leave the room. Find hints that teach you the Spell of Exorcism you need to use.
For those who have read up to this point and think the game seems interesting but may be too hard for them...don’t worry!
There are tutorials and other functions that help you solve the puzzles when you are truly stuck!
▲First, learn the game’s basic controls in the tutorial.
