A man has been murdered on a popular television program. This calls for a great detective. Follow the clues, from the police headquarters to television sets to the board room of the station. Only you can solve this case and bring justice and closure to the victim’s grieving widow.

Reality Show – Fatal Shot is a hidden-object adventure game. You will search for clues, collect items, and solve puzzle to keep moving forward in the story.



Like other hidden-object games, this game uses only the mouse. The character is moved, objects are collected, and actions are taken by clicking the appropriate area on the screen.

The character keeps a diary, in which is listed all pertinent information and clues the player has collected over the course of the game. It is accessed by clicking the book at the bottom left of the screen.

Items that are collected are kept in the inventory, which is shown across the bottom of the screen. Click an object in the inventory, and it can be used to interact with items in the area.

There is a Hint button located at the bottom right of the screen. Use this button anytime you get stuck to reveal a hint, such as the location of an object or where you should go next. The hint button recharges over time, and disappears entirely on the hardest difficulty setting.

Puzzles that arise throughout the game are accompanied by specific instructions. The keyboard may be usable for some puzzles, but only the mouse is ever required. If a puzzle is especially difficult, it can be skipped using the Skip button at the bottom right, which charges over time.

Tips and Tricks

This is a hidden object game, so be on the lookout for hidden objects. Some objects are under others, and some are in places that cannot be seen without taking a closer look at nearby objects or areas. The most efficient way to tackle this is to keep a good, trained eye open at all times. The most foolproof way to tackle this is to click everything that can be clicked.

This game requires quite a bit of backtracking. Areas will change as you uncover more pieces of the mystery, so always be on the lookout for subtle differences when you return to a room. If you are stuck, you might try revisiting rooms you’ve been in before to see if there is anything new in there.

The best piece of advice a player can get is to use the Diary and the Hint button. The diary quite often shares clues as to what to look for and where to find it. The hint button can help you out of a tight spot. Since this game is not quite linear, you might find yourself stuck at a certain part, and you may be missing an item that this walkthrough assumed you found a long time ago. The hint button can be an invaluable asset during those times.

Relax. There is no way to fail except to quit. Have fun!
