Zynga's Hidden Chronicles on Facebook: Our guide to getting started [Video]

Are you ready to dive into a world of death and mystery while completing hidden object scenes and mini-games? You can do just that in Zynga's newest Facebook game Hidden Chronicles, which has launched just today. While we've already taken an in-depth look at the overall gameplay, along with what makes the game different from not only other hidden object games but also social games in general, what if you just want to get straight to the gameplay of it all?

We're here with a video beginner's guide that allows you to get a feel for what to expect when you do jump in. This guide will show you the overall tutorial in the game, and also point out a few reminders and tips to completing scenes and decorating your Manor. If you want a larger score, for instance, wait until you've visually spotted all six items on your (current) list before clicking on any of them. This allows you to rack up combo points, like we show you in the video.

So what are you waiting for? Take a look at our guide to getting started in the mysterious world of Hidden Chronicles, and then try the game out for yourself. Also, keep checking back with Games.com as we bring you detailed guides to completing each and every scene in the game!
