EPISode 4 : Pandora box
« on: January 17, 2012, 02:38:57 PM »
I understand what to do. But I'm getting mad. My eyes get tired trying to follow these swirling images. I'm disappointed. Why such a crazy thing in an adventure game ?

Is that a rhetorical question?

There is actually a method to the madness and I will share my trick to solving this puzzle.

Examine each circle and find symbols on it you cannot confuse with any other circle and make sure you remember what corner it is in.

Now when making a symbol don't try to finish the symbol unless three are correct since it won't break unless you fill it in.

For the last one try to find one that works but if you cannot don't panic. You got a few more guesses until you have to build it again.

Other then that... do it on easy. I did it on hard and honestly, I didn't appreciate the difficulty. I felt like my mind was assaulted and frustration swept over me as I analysed my situation. In otherwords I think the puzzle tried to make you feel like Valanice... which is quite impressive and probably worked.

Also this is far from the toughest thing I ever had to do in a point and click adventure...

Simon the Sorcerer's constant "Every object looks like a background object" I consider far worse in the unfair category. Actually by the end of it you will find yourself finding objects that look like everything else simply because they pulled it soo many times previously.

Yah, I actually did the pandora's box quite easily using the 3 correct and then find the fourth one method, although I picked the hardest symbol to do last and it took a while to recognize from the swirling circles which dissapear in 0.5 seconds. Imagine doing this in a life and death situation like Valanice though, this would be extremely tough in that situation or if there was a time limit.

Haha everything looks like a background thing, the first time I did king's quest vi a long time ago I found the plank easily, but recently when I started over again to finish it, I thought the plank was a background object and got stuck cause I forgot.

The toughest thing I went through was guessing rumplestiltskin's name, I kept thinking to myself, I spelt his name correctly the first time, respelt it, then respelt it backwards and you only get three guesses, so I stopped playing until I picked it up again with hint.
