To many door puzzles

That have no logic. I enjoyed the game but the door puzzles were really hard after scene 6. Items collected didn't always seem to be reverent to any particular puzzle. So I did buy another game and hope it is a little better. I like the point and click games, graphics are awesome.

Found my escape

This game was surprisingly fun. Though I thoroughly enjoyed an earlier game, Cryptic Labyrinth, with its somewhat simpler but still worthwhile puzzles, this installment, as many other reviews noted, was much more involved and fairly difficult. There were a few times when the use of items didn’t seem particularly intuitive, but most were pretty logical. It’s the puzzles themselves, though, that really set this game apart. Some of them were truly unique from the other escapers I’ve played, which I really appreciate from this dev. At least two or three of them seemed rather obscure at first, but ultimately required several levels of extrapolation and somewhat intense study of cause and effect to produce what turned out to be, for me, amazingly satisfying solutions. Additionally, the music was nice, the story was pretty good, and the graphics were spot-on. I was actually a little sad when I finished, but I just downloaded another of their games, so I’m hoping the same quality carries through into that one as well.

A Challenging Masterpiece

This developer has always produced great games. This one is near the best of his games. A lot of puzzles are difficult and I personally go to sleep on a tough puzzle and give it a shot the next day (I will not use a hint and wish I could opt to get rid of the hint button to avoid accidentally pressing it). Usually a lightbulb comes at some point and soon enough I figure it out. But these puzzles are very clever and smart and really rack your brain. There is a logic to each puzzle though, they are not totally arbitrary. I read one review about someone liking the game until one puzzle which he said was too "tedious". It was only tedious because he hadnt figured it out. Once u figure out the mechanics its not hard or tedious whatsoever. Anyway this game is a great point and click adventure with truly original puzzles. I highly recommend it!
