Haunted Lights Puzzle Icon

Haunted Lights is the fourth puzzle mini-game unlocked in the Seeker's Notes: Hidden Mystery game. It was introduced to the game with the 2016 Saint Patrick's Day Update. Version 1.16.0 of the game made cosmetic changes to the puzzle, turning the light bulbs into lanterns.

Haunted Lights is a variation of the match/connect 3 of the same type puzzle game. Players unlock this mini-game once they reach Game Level 10.

Game Mode Edit

The object of the game is to complete the given challenge within a set amount of time. The board will automatically reshuffle itself if no connection/match is possible.

There are 3 challenge modes in Haunted Lights. Tapping on the icon will tell you what mode is on and what you need to do to win the game in that mode.

If the Player is unsuccessful in completing the puzzle in a certain game mode, it will unfortunately remain in that mode until completed.

How to Play Edit

The object of the game is to string and connect 3 or more of the same colored lanterns together and clear the game board. The lanterns come in six colors; match at least three of them with the same color in a line, across or down, to complete the challenge within the set time limit. Each session will have a new challenge goal as shown on the progress bar located next to the timer on the game panel.

Special Charged Lights Edit

Players are able to create specially charged lights inside the lanterns by connecting 6 or more of the same color lanterns together. The special charged lights come in 2 types: horizontal or vertical depending on how it was formed.

Lantern Type Icon Formation Function
Regular Basic Lantern Red None, this is your basic lantern None
Horizontally Charged Horizontally Charged Lantern Red Connecting line ends straight across or diagonal Clears 1 row
Vertically Charged Vertically Charged Lantern Red Connecting line ends up or down Clears 1 column

Note that connecting 12 or more of the same color lanterns together will produce 2 random light charges, resulting in 2 special charged lanterns appearing on the game board.

ObstaclesEdit

Players will encounter the following 4 types of obstacles in Haunted Lights: Locks, Solid Plates, Cracked Plates, and Stones.

Obstacle Icon Requirements to Clear Effect
Locked Lantern Haunted Lights Locked Lantern Connect a line ending with the locked lantern to break it Breaking the Lock leaves a regular lantern to be cleared
Solid Plate Haunted Lights Solid Plate Must have a lantern on it to break and clear it Breaking the Solid Plate leaves a Cracked Plate to be cleared
Cracked Plate Haunted Lights Cracked Plate Must have a lantern on it to break and clear it Breaking a Cracked Plate clears the obstacle
Stone Haunted Lights Stone Clears by connecting lanterns adjacent to it Breaking the Stone clears the obstacle(unless a plate is underneath)

Thus, a locked lantern on top of a solid plate must be cleared 3 times to be removed from the game board.

Clearing the Lanterns Edit

(1) To clear the lanterns in Haunted Lights, create a line connecting 3 or more of the same colored lanterns.

Haunted Lights Connect

Connect 3 lanterns in a line

(2) Connect 6 or more of the same colored lanterns to create a Special Charged Lantern that appears randomly on the field of play.

  • Connect 6 or more
  • Creates a charge
  • Which randomly lands and becomes a Special Charged Lantern

(3) Connect a Special Charged Lantern in a string of 3 or more to clear an entire vertical or horizontal row.

NOTE: Whether the lantern will be a vertically or horizontally charged one depends on the orientation of the line connecting the last lantern in the sequence.

If the last line connecting the lanterns together is vertical, a vertically charged lantern is created and connecting that charged lantern in a string of 3 or more will clear an entire column.

  • Last connecting line is vertical
  • Creates a vertically charged lantern
  • Connect that special vertically charged lantern
  • Clears an entire column and surrounding obstacles

If the last line connecting the lanterns together is horizontal, a horizontally charged lantern is created and connecting that charged lantern in a string of 3 or more will clear an entire row.

  • Last connecting line is horizontal that creates a charge
  • Creates a horizontally charged lantern
  • Connect that special horizontally charged lantern to create a blast line to clear an entire horizontal row

If the last line is diagonal, a horizontally charged lantern is created and connecting that charged lantern in a string of 3 or more will clear an entire row.

NOTE: the only way to get a vertical charge is to make sure the last connecting line is vertical (up/down).

  • Last line connecting bulbs is diagonal
  • Creates a random charged lantern

(4) Connect 2 or more of the Special Charged Lanterns so that their blast lines intersect, this clears multiple rows and columns at the same time.
