Played this earlier. Great graphics and game play, but everyone needed so much help to get through it, kinda ruined it.

sorry ... I have to correct myself, the last puzzle actually quite easy.

interesting game although i needed a bunch of help, and i couldn't even understand the cross at then end... oh well...

NotMarian said...

Doing really well, but now I'm stuck. Maybe tomorrow I'll think more clearly. I'm glad this game lets you save your progress. I want to try to do this without help.

absolutely don't understand the last puzzle even with the walkthrough...sigh

Sweet! I'm out. Unlike many other people in previous posts, I found the last puzzle quite easy. although puzzle 5, I think it was, with the 3x3 grid and putting the animals on it. That one I didn't understand at all.

-k said...

Weird. I made a comment about the final puzzle and the 3x3 grid puzzle (which I saw as posted) but, on reload, it's not showing up. Hmph.

-k said...

Okay, trying again...

For the 3x3, two rooms have images of the man, bird and camel with compass points, you can derive their positioning and placement for the grid from them.

For the final puzzle, it's like a map of the game. Each room has a glyph over the door that needs to match the large glyph on the final door (in the room with the cross-like puzzle). Rotate the corresponding areas to make the glyphs all line up the same. You can leave the puzzle to look in each room as you go, without having to redo the ones you have already gotten correct.

Very good. Very good indeed.

Good length. Good puzzles. Good clues, even more than needed.

The dice and animals are nice 3D puzzles of an unusual kind. The final cross was obviously a map, but far from obvious how it worked. Rather flat finish, needs a 'happy coin'.

Yes, definitely more like this, please.

Moe said...

ok that was a nice one, and the final puzzle is pretty easy one u get the concept :)

Olavo said...

Very nice escape game! Everything fits well into place. I esp. liked the creative reuse of objects, as well several inventive puzzles. Thx for posting!

NotMarian said...

Ah! I did it!! Thanks for the hint about the 3x3 room. And for the hint about the cross.

Awesome!

Totally needed clues for the 3x3 grid, still don't really know why the placement was the way it was...but I was able to understand the rest of it with some thinking. Nice room escape. This developer always does a nice job. Thanks, Bart!
