Energy symbol Inventory

Each Picture investigation and Puzzle game costs Energy points to play.

The number of Energy Points required varies between Hidden Object Locations/Puzzles (with the Locations/Puzzles you unlock at higher Game Levels costing the more for each play) and also increases as the Rank of the Location/Puzzle increases.

Locations that contain Anomalies cost additional Energy points to play, unless you Dispel the anomaly before playing.

You can find your current number of Energy points at the top centre of your Darkwood Town Map (number 5 in the cropped Darkwood town Map picture below).

Energy Level and Maximum EnergyEdit

Darkwood Town Map player info

1: Player Avatar; 2: Current Game Level; 3: Player Name; 4: Current Experience Points/Experience Points to next Game Level; 5: Current Energy Points/Maximum Energy Points; 6: Time to next Energy point; 7: Settings; 8: Coins; 9: Rubies

Number 5 in the picture of a Darkwood Town Map above shows your current and maximum Energy points in the form: current energy points/maximum energy points.

In the example in the picture, the player has 15 out of a maximum 85 energy points available.

When you start a new game of Seeker's Notes: Mysteries of Darkwood, you starting maximum energy is 35 points. Your maximum energy points will increase by 5 for each new Game Level you reach in the game.

Energy RestorationEdit

Your Energy points restore slowly over time and are restored to maximum every time you reach a new level in the game.

Your Energy recovers over time at a rate of 1 Energy point every 3 minutes. The clock under your Energy points (number 6 in the picture of a Darkwood Town Map above) shows how much time is left before a new Energy point is restored.

Once you reach your maximum, the clock stops and your Energy will not start restoring again until your Energy points drop below the maximum level again.

However, you can still gain Energy points from Trophies or by using Energy items in your inventory, and these will still be added to your current total Energy points, even if the total is more than your maximum.

You can increase the rate your Energy restores for a short period of time by using Talismans you can win in the game such as the Spinning Top (triples Energy recovery for 30 minutes) and the Thunder Amulet (increases Energy recovery rate by 5 for 90 minutes) or using Talismans you can buy in the Store for Rubies such as the Fire Crystal (increases Energy recovery rate by 10 for 2 hours).

The Golden Chicken Artifact increases Energy recovery rate by 10 like the Fire Crystal, but lasts for 24 hours instead of 2 hours.

Using Energy Items to Restore EnergyEdit

Insufficient Energy Inventory warning

Not enough Energy to play Mosaic

As you play Hidden Object Locaations and Puzzles your Energy supply will be reduced by the cost of each play. Once you run out of Energy points you must either wait for your Energy points to restore at a rate of 1 Energy point every 3 minutes (or faster if you are using Talismans/Arifacts) or you can use Energy items you win in the game or buy using Rubies to restore some of your Energy so you can continue playing.

If you try to press the Explore button on a Hidden Object Location or the Solve button on a Puzzle game when you do not have the required amount of Energy points you will be given the option to use an Energy item in your Inventory, buy the Energy item you require in the Store for Rubies, or given the amount of time you must wait to earn the Energy required to play.

You can use Energy items at any point in the game (even when you already have Energy) by pressing the Inventory icon on your Darkwood Town Map to open your Inventory and selecting the Energy tab (Lightning Symbol). Pressing the icon for any Energy item you have in your inventory will bring up an Information box describing what the item does, where to find it by playing and how many you currently have in your inventory.

There are currently 6 Energy items available in the game:

Using Talismans/Artifacts to Restore EnergyEdit

You can increase the rate your Energy restores for a short period of time by using Talismans you can win in the game such as the Spinning Top (triples Energy recovery for 30 minutes) and the Thunder Amulet (increases Energy recovery rate by 5 for 90 minutes) or using Talismans you can buy in the Store for Rubies such as the Fire Crystal (increases Energy recovery rate by 10 for 2 hours).

The Golden Chicken Artifact increases Energy recovery rate by 10 like the Fire Crystal, but lasts for 24 hours instead of 2 hours.

Important: Talismans and Artifacts change the rate that the Energy Timer decreases. If the Energy Timer is not counting down, then they cannot have any effect. This means that if you reach your maximum Energy while using an Energy Talisman or Artifact, they will stop being effective. Since your Energy will stop restoring, the Energy Timer will stop, and the Talisman/Artifact cannot speed up a stopped clock.

However, the Talisman/Artifacts own Timer will continue to count down even though it is not longer aiding in Energy restoration. This means that you should make sure that you are well below your maximum energy if you plan on leaving an Energy Talisman/Artifact running while you are not playing the game, in order to get the most out of them.

There are currently 3 Energy Talismans available in the game:

Energy Talisman Icon Function Extra Energy Awarded while Running Where to find Cost to Buy
Spinning Top
Spinning Top
x3 rate Energy restoration for 30 Minutes 20 energy points Combining Collections; Store 7 Rubies

x5 rate Energy restoration for 90 Minutes 120 energy points Combining Collections; Store 18 Rubies

x10 rate Energy restoration for 120 Minutes 360 energy points Store 100 Rubies

In order to create a Golden Chicken Artifact, you must first combine 1 each of 5 different Collections. You then Combine these Collections together using Fixers in order to make the Artifact. This will use up 1 each of the 5 Collections in your Inventory (the number of those Collections marked as completed in the Collections tab will reduce by 1, and if only 1 of that Collection had been combined, the Collection will once again be marked as un-combined in the game).

You need the following Collections and Fixers to make the Golden Chicken Artifact:

Completed Collection Item Needed A Completed Collection Item Needed B Completed Collection Item Needed C Completed Collection Item Needed D Completed Collection Item Needed E Clock Parts Needed to Combine Artefact Created Artefact Purpose
Basket of Food Bowl of Cookies Napkin Holder Layer Cake Tea Set Chain x3; Silk Ribbon x4, Lace Ribbon x4; Cobweb x4
