Even with the hint I don't understand the PERFECT puzzle.

If the perfect puzzle is confusing after the hint, wait until you try the piano. I'm reading the hint and still have absolutely no idea what it is talking about.
Another good one from Ichima. Did take me a while to figure what was going on on the piano. Thanks, Ichima.[spoiler]The PPEERRFFEECCTT puzzle is not wildly intuitive but getable.
Kind of agree with the majority here. Had potential to be a really good game...but they lost it in the details, and less than intuitive puzzles.
Bill: I had to look at the hint too, and realized I was misreading the puzzle.Na neebj zrnaf lbh fxvc bire n xrl, n pvepyr zrnaf uvg gur xrl.

Thank you for the explanation on the piano! I got so close to coming to that conclusion, but not quite. Something about your explanation clicked while the hint's explanation just didn't.
I got confused by the sheet music unlock puzzle.I placed the stickers on the keys & had no clues.both your answer & the hint didn't make sense.Then it clicked, I read left to right,
Normally I solve these kind of puzzles eventually, but I had to look for the hints for the perfect and piano puzzles. At least I'm not alone!
We believe we had the rot13ed solution to the piano, but it never worked. We read the clue, and found it incomprehensible, except for the keys to press. That is, the relative positions again did not seem to describe the solution.We had a much better "solution," to the menu puzzle, starting with the only drink that had one of the letters, and eliminating ambiguities down from there. As that had nothing to do with the actual solution, ours didn't work. Theirs worked, but we thought it was murky at best.Not Ichima's masterpiece.
OKay, I'm still so baffled by the piano puzzle. How do you know where to start? How do you know what to skip/what not to skip? Does it reset for every line? I've read the hint and the ROT13 and I'm just... baffled ha. Can someone just explain it and give the answer (which key 1-6 to hit?) Thank you!
@Unknown - I assume you've put the stickers on the piano keys? If so, one of them is a crown. The hint also has a crown in it somewhere. Basically you had to work backwards from the crown to work out what to hit first. You do not hit the crown first, but because that's the only key that we know what it is that's the only way to work out where you do start.As for what to skip: an arrow means skip one key. So if the clue is dot-arrow-dot, if the first key is 1, you'd press 1 then 3 (skipping key 2).(Sorry I can't give you the exact keys, but I don't have time to play the game again. If you need more help, there are video walkthroughs on YouTube.)
This one had a couple of stumpers, including the piano.I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the bowling ball, assuming it had something to do with the bowling pins. I noticed you get a different viewpoint sitting in the chair, facing the pins, so really wanted to set up the pins and then roll the ball into them. Spoiler: This is not a productive line of inquiry.For the piano: Left-most sticker key is 1, crown is six:guerrsvirgjbsbhefvksbhe

Dear Bart, so nice to find classical escape games again. Thank you! Catherine
Another quality escape game from Ichima. Perfect puzzle took a while to figure, otherwise it was solvable. It tricked me sometimes, but I liked that some solution is not so obvious, and I need to reconsider my first solution.
Kind of disappointing in my opinion : some riddles are ridiculously easy (such as the last one), some others are not exactly 100% "logical" (such as the "perfect" one) - and some seem to me presented in such a bad way that it makes them extremely complex - when they are in fact not - e.g the piano.Moreover finding some items or places means you have to try clicking nearly everywhere and have some luck... it's not really an interesting way of searching for solutions...A pity because otherwise it would have been a nice one.
I actually found the piano pretty intuitive. I needed the hint on the perfect, though, and had to look up a walkthrough to find where to put the bowling ball.

I like Ichima games, but this one I found to be particularlynon-intuitive.
