Because of a bet made friends with the protagonist must spend a whole night in the museum of Professor Windlenot abandoned, never opened to the public in the past where two teenagers have disappeared. Exploring this impressive building, the protagonist will encounter at some point in the ghost of Professor Windlenot, who also died in strange circumstances in his own museum, and find that it is infested with ten elemental demons, called Ixupi. These wicked demons have the power to suck the lifeblood from those who stumble upon them, leaving at the end of a decomposing body. The player will be able to seal them forever in ten amulets, trying to survive.


Shivers is unlike any other adventure game published by Sierra, for many reasons. First of all, there is no inventory system, because your character can carry only an amulet at a time. In addition, it has a pre-set amount of health at the beginning of the game, which decreases every time it is attacked by a Ixupi without the amulet needed to capture it. When his health runs out, the game ends with the hero's death. There are many objects in the museum where you can interact with, and as many puzzles to solve in order to proceed. Each amulet needed to capture a Ixupi consists of a container and a lid, which are hidden throughout the museum and change their position every time you start a new game (ploy that allows the replay value of the title). Each time the player finds a useful clue to solving a puzzle, you unlock a "flashback" in the pause menu that allows you to review it whenever you want. There is a score that increases every time you solve a puzzle, you read a text, we observe an object and, of course, you catch a Ixupi.
Given the moderate success was developed a following, Shivers 2: Harvest of Souls.


The overall strategy

You can have in your inventory, only one subject. When you find a plate or a talisman, it becomes the sole. Pay close attention to where each dish or the talisman. If you exchange the newly discovered object to the one that was carried before, or will transfer closer things found far away, your notes will be useful.
Shivers titleYou can always notice the approach Iksupi - they create a unique sound. If you shave off quickly, it will remain intact.

Use the tip of the mouse cursor, not the thickest part.
Look splash cartoon of how friends have locked you in the museum. Now is the time to set the option "text on".

Near the museum

Turn left - see the dragon gargoyle. The chain opens it - inside you will find a letter. Read it. When the letter fall to the ground, note the number in the dragon's mouth.
Go up until you reach a locked door. The box on the right drawled nasally that the museum is closed. Remember the mark on top of the doors and their colors. When you go down, get another set of marks to the right of the purple vase.
Do you need other input, so go down the path to the veranda. Find another set of marks and colors for tall items. Go behind the arch and get the fourth set of marks for a triangular stone. Go back to the side of the arch. Locate the mark on the bench. By the time you reach the front porch, you should have five sets of marks. Go to the very end of the path to find traces.
Log on to the veranda, open the metal box and choose his puzzle. From top to bottom, type 029, click on the left. Next job more difficult - here you need seven moves the upper to the lower parts rearrange pins, and vice versa. We denote the upper left part number 1, while the lower right is 2 (we assume left to right), free left pin # will be called, and the free right - *.

When you examine it, you will see the ghost of Professor Vindlnota to warn you. It appears at number 4. Inspect the mark on a plate for later.
Go down the tunnel and get the elevator. Your task is to arrange the pictures on the diagonal (each time differently, in my simple task). Enter the elevator - will be taken to the office of the museum.

Office museum

Carefully inspect the office, but avoid the fire. You should find: map on the wall, a newspaper in his coat pocket, a letter on the floor, the elevator for the tapestry, the message on the tape, the door to the studio and the letter in the table. Be sure to get the bull mascot in the bottom drawer.

Enter the door and focus on the space to the right of the chandelier, beware - there may be a wax Iksupi. You must find all four books in the cupboard, items 8, 10, 11 and 12. If you get into the trouble, start with the only book that in mind - a "Black Book". Then the next - two right and orange. Then white, another four books on. Last - on one shelf below and purple. Further examination quickly detect even a single pass, but leave it for later.

Strange beasts

Enter the room of strange animals, go to the far left corner and get the double doors (with green serpentine). Enter the room amazing plants and turn left, forward, then left again. You will find a mascot for the plates found in the office. If you have a dish, the talisman magically reunited with her, or else take the mascot, go back to the office and connect both items. You can cope with their first Iksupi (if he is still in the ashes of the fireplace).

Balance museum

Probably the most useful thing - it's blue prints. They are in a room secret depths. If you're in the office, return to the room of strange beasts, otherwise leave the room amazing plants and go left of the eagle's nest.

Secrets depth

Find another set of double doors in the room of strange beasts. Go through the door, mind map on the floor and check the screen Neptune-Poseidon. Here is a puzzle globe. Solve it (type "20N" and "75W"), and you will appear in the inventory item and very useful set of blue prints of the museum, number 14. Walk a little further and get the puzzle sirens-body at the end of the right corner. Solve it (press 1, 6, 5, 1, 6, 5, 7, 4, 2, 1), and opens the door to show the Colossus of Rhodes, the right of the body.
Enter the new pass and get the puzzle of the moving wall. You have no key to it, so I have to come back later. When the exit passage, see the dirty yellow stain in front. We did a quick look. Look Iksupi sand-land, which sometimes takes a stand on the left. If you go back to the globe, then go for it a little bit, right, forward, back and to the right along the wall. At the far end is a bit of yellow crystals, which can be Iksupi.

Remember the secret passage in the serving room? This - his other side, and the door opens only one way!
