Your only way out of this mysterious house is to solve the puzzles contained in each painting and sculpture. To escape, you'll need to detect forgeries, unscramble mixed-up images, play musical chairs with paintings by arranging them in chronological order, hunt for the works of a particular artist or period, and play many more fun and challenging games and puzzles.

As you've probably figured out, this is a limited version of the program. We hope this will give you an idea about the entire program. Because a demo is only a fraction of the real version, there are places where the full features don't work. When you reach one of those places, we show you a help screen describing what would happen in that area on the real CD-ROM.
