The Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes: The Case Of The Rose Tattoo

Walkthru

NOTE: There is a lot of flexibility in this game, allowing you to go to 
various sundry locations in haphazard order. In fact, the order that I 
went through the game when writing the walkthru is not the order in 
which I played the first time - hindsight (or notes) is such a wonderful 
thing. So, this is less a walkthru than a script of what to do to get past 
a scene or puzzle.

Items that you can acquire are in bold, while poignant information or 
new map locations are underlined.

You start as Watson, outside 221B Baker St. Mycroft, Holmes' brother,

Curiously, in my initial run of the game, the Major (excuse me -

LOOK Scarrett and the ending begins

The only thing I never figured out was how Holmes knew there was a 
composite involving one of the royal family - or, more to the point a 
female member. I suspected a compromising picture was missing from 
Lawton's album, but had assumed it was something that would make Lady 
Cordelia break off the engagement. Yet, when Holmes confronts Major 
Mysteray he refers to the picture explicitly.

Overall, though - what fun!
