Game Type: ESRB Rating: N/A Platform/Console: LWK Recommended Age: 6+ Thinking Skills Used: , Academic Skills Used:


Mysteries are abundant within the Ramsey Manor and it is up to the player to uncover the secrets by playing Hidden Chronicles. His tasks include examining various scenes, uncovering hidden objects, solving puzzles, and locating clues. He may also interact with online friends by leaving gifts for them or even challenging them to see who can find the most clues in a scene. Lastly, he must give consideration to his estate and work to gain Estate Points so that he may expand and investigate new lands. Hidden Chronicles does not contain any inappropriate content and requires only basic reading skills, and is therefore recommended for players six and older.


Working Memory

Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.    

By nature of the game, the player will have to repeat scenes over and over again. There is an advantage to this when he uses Working Memory skills to help him recall the location of objects so that he can quickly locate them again. The quicker objects are found, the higher the combo and the time bonus. The player is also judged on accuracy as well, which again is helped by recognizing objects from the same scene previously done.


Untitled2Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals. 

Expanding his estate land involves satisfying particular requirements to unlock the land. One such requirement is number of trophies. For each scene, the player is told how many points are needed until they earn the next trophy. Considering the limited amount of energy the player has to use, it is wise to play the scenes that are closest to earning the next trophy. Additionally, saving coins for large purchases that are required as part of quests or expansion requirements require Planning skills, to avoid spending money on items of lesser priority.
