The Sydney Mystery Walkthrough, by Phil Darke
The Sydney Mystery by Twighlight software is a point and click adventure and is supplied on 1 CD and runs direct from the disc, requiring no installation. The puzzles are not particularly difficult but you do need to sweep the mouse cursor over the whole screen to avoid missing anything.
I particularly would like to thank Mag from Gameboomers, without whose help I would not have completed the game.
The game opens with a cut scene of your uncle being kidnapped.
