I can't kill the scorpion

The mystery of the mummy
Level 4
After the destruction, I saved my game.
Right after I have plenty of time to get the bucket, find the scorpion and click many times on it.
But whatever I do, I can't get it restrained. After several trials, I die.
I did about thirty times and it's always the same thing.
I read all the walktroughs and all the forums I can find and noboby seems to have that problem.
I'm desperate. Someone somewhere has to save me!

    The solution I just received from you is not good here.
    I have read all the walkthroughs from gameboomer, UHS, adventure lantern. They all say the same thing.
    Which is : click on the bucket, find the scorpion and cover the scorpion with the bucket.
    It won't kill it but it will restrain it for awhile.
    For a reason unknown, I click on the bucket and I find the scorpion and I then click on the scorpion but nothing happens. The scorpion keeps moving and after a while it kills the character. It doesn't make sense. I went on several forums and nobody seems to have that problem. Some complained they didn't have time enough to get the bucket but that's all.
    I am stuck there and I can't continue my game which you must admit is a tragedy.
    Please help!

    I understand that you are not going to help me with my problem.
    You are still going to give me where to find all the walktroughs that exist about that game.
    Walkthroughs that I already knew as I told you.
    I thought I explained well my problem. It seems you're not going to try to reach people that can explain or fix that situation.
    I think you should credit my credit card and cancel that transaction.

    The Mystery of the Mummy is another in The Adventure Company's (DreamCatcher) long running history of solid adventure games that are filled with high play value, while priced very reasonably. The scenery, design, and layout of the game is super, invoking a very mysterious, suspenseful atmosphere that helps immerse you in the environment of the legend of Sherlock Holmes as he works to solve this latest mystery.

    The game intently focuses on making you find, pick up and use all sorts of objects in all the various rooms of the mansion. This means you must carefully look everywhere in each scene, and in many cases, this means you must very slowly look for these objects, because many are so very difficult to see that if you recklessly move around the mouse cursor this will result in missing an object.

    The game provides clues through the information you find as you run across various letters, notes, or other documents. As any experienced adventure gamer knows, these clues are extremely cryptic and not direct, thus making the mystery even more challenging. In other words, the clues have to be deciphered and figured out, in order to know how the information can be of help in the various places you visit.

    In addition, many times the objects you are to find are so hard to see that you will find yourself moving the mouse cursor around until it changes to the "pick-up" shape, but it is very unclear exactly what you are picking up. Once you click on the supposed object, then you have to look at it in the inventory Carpetbag, to find out just exactly what you just picked up. In other situations, the objects are washed out by the surrounding coloring and layout of the scene, or are located in extremely dark spots, making it sometimes nearly impossible to see the object you have to get.

    In this case, the official walkthrough strategy guide will not only be helpful in knowing where to go and what to do, but as well knowing what objects you are supposed to find and pick up. Working with the guide, I found myself numerous times slowly moving he mouse cursor shape around various scenes until I got the capture shape, and then clicked on something I could not discern, until I looked at it in the inventory. With so many objects so difficult to see in order to pick them up, completing The Mystery of the Mummy may force gamers to use the walkthrough.

    This need to find these "hot" objects is a classic adventure game genre feature that will be very familiar to most experienced adventure gamers, but this aspect also represents why the adventure game genre has been so chastised by computer gamers more inclined to playing hot action games that challenge hand-eye coordination. In adventure games, the pace can seem slow to "shooter" game fans, because in most cases you will only be able to advance the linear game play by finding these items, correctly positioning the mouse cursor over them, and clicking to pick up these objects.

    With DreamCatcher games, this approach is a clue from the start that you will have to go very slow with the game, savor all the richly detailed and designed environments, and be sure to look everywhere for these items and for the characters to speak with.

    1. Swing around and pick up both buckets over near the half cask of water.

    2. Look down to see a busy scorpion.

    3. Quickly take a bucket from your inventory and cover the scorpion.

    4. Move to the door.

    5. Turn around and click behind the Chess puzzle (what's left of it).

    6. Look down when you arrive there and put the second bucket on the new scorpion.

    7. Pick up the WOODEN PLANK.

    8. Look down and pick up Parkey's BAG with the fifth Anubis statue safely tucked inside.

I found this walkthrough for the DS version By: perseaphone@yahoo.comHopefully it will work for pc as wellTo help keep yourself oriented in here: there are a total of 4 statues. Two on eachside that face each other. On one side you will see that the statue closest to the door has a crooked staff in hand and the other statue has a spear. The opposite wall has the statue with the spear closest to the door and the other statue holding the crooked staff in the back. Click on the center of the room until you are facing two of the statues and can reach them. Click on each statue once. Turn and click on the center of the room until you are facing the other two statues and can reach them. Click on each of these statues once. A panel in the floor next to the door you came in should pop open if you did it right and you need to work your way back there and pick up the STATUE. Click on the center of the room until you are in the center again. Your objective is to now reach the door opposite the one you came in. *NOTE: I found that once I got to the center of the room and then clicking towards the statues OPPOSITE the door I really wanted to go to, I was able to get to the door I needed.

Cannot read message on door in rotating room so cannot put "B" in center vase in laboratory. Tryed installing new drivers but still have problem.


I wish I could remember more clearly what to do...  I thing that you can see the door more clearly after you do something else that triggers the door close up.  The site I like for help-it is hints really not everything, is www.uhs-hints.com   It is a little annoying as it has a lot of ads.  Anyway click on the 500 game area, and  then you will have a list of games.  If you just want the answers, you could always just type in "the mystery of the mummy walkthrough" and that will bring up some sites that walk you through the game with all the answers. Hope this helps and sorry if it is just a repeat of what you already know!

Cann't grab hold of history book in the library in level 2


You need to pick up the books in the right order, and put them in the places they belong, swapping them with the books that are out of place. The first book is blue, and is hidden behind a pillar in the corner of the room.
