Mystery of the Mummy Cheats and Links
Okay, first of all, there aren't any trainers or hex editors for Mystery of the Mummy, because Sherlock Holmes has no stats, skills, hit points, or anything else you could
conceivably want to edit. I'm really surprised how many people have been asking me for that.
There is one cheat built into the game, though--if you find yourself frustrated with the black and white grid puzzle (otherwise known as the "nonogram," "Conceptis," or
"Japanese tile puzzle,") you can give yourself a hint or even opt out of it completely by clicking in the upper right-hand corner. This causes a large section of the puzzle
to be automatically filled in for you. Do it enough times in a row, and eventually only one tile will be left for you to put into place yourself. Most gamers will be able to
solve the puzzle readily with the clues provided by just one click, though.
Except for the nonogram, the only way to really cheat in this game is to look up the solution to a puzzle rather than figuring it out yourself.
If you want to do that, or you just want to learn more about this game, here are a few good links for you:

their walkthrough uniquely structured to reveal only one hint at a time.

Very explicit walkthrough, lots of spoilers.
