I've just installed this game and it looks pretty spooky. It also looks very complicated. Do you think a novice game player can handle it? scared nu2gaming

The game play itself is simple, but it IS based on H.P. Lovecraft, so it is in the horror genre. There are some genuinely creepy moments in the game, to be honest, and it's not for the faint of heart for that reason.

There are some action sequences that people found difficult. If you haven't played many action games you might want to get a couple under your belt before trying this one. It's worth playing, though.

I am a somewhat ( lol ) experienced action/adventure gamer. I am still playing it now. And I think its probably the hardest game I ever played. I am doing a lot better since I have weapons. I am no good at all at stealth and there has been lots of difficult situations in the game that depend on it to get you through to the next save point. Id definitely recommend something a lot easier for your first try at an A/A game.

Hi guys/gals; Well I'm going to give this a try. I've gone thru the morgue, activated some kind of machine that tortures a guy, taken the green crystal. What is that big machine in the middle of the room? If it is the time gate how do I put the crystal in it? help nu2gaming

If you are in the room that you can circle around a large area on the floor (not the morgue--further on), there shoud be a place to the right as you enter the room. It looks like a triangular holder.

Pokey; I think that's where I am. There is something in the middle of the floor that Jack thinks is some kind of power supply? I have picked up the green crystal (it's in inventory) I just don't know how to get it out of inventory and insert it in machine. nu2gaming

Open your inventory with the "I" key. Click on the item you want to use. If you are standing in the right location to use the item it will take it.

Thanks for the support. What am I getting myself into? I'm wandering around Innsmouth and keep getting caught by cop in alley of First National. I'm sure I'll get by him sooner or later. scared

EDIT: I've made it into the store twice. I've gotten the liquor and wooden handle but I can't find the trap door near the register. help That **** cop keeps getting me. Where is the trap door? nu2gaming

Check the floor behind the bar or counter.

Thanks JohnBoy; I did, but I don't see any trap door. I'll go check again.

EDIT: I found the trap door. Not by the register but behind the side counter. I need the wooden handle to open it. I have the handle in inventory but when I click on it nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? rotfl nu2gaming

I had trouble with that trapdoor too. Finally got it to open and then I fell down the opening. Make sure you are crouched and try from a slightly different direction maybe. It is finicky.

Maybe you're not in the right spot - all I had to do was click on the handle after I opened the inventory.

Thanks a million. I did finally manage to get it open and did indeed fall down the opening (just ahead of the cop). I've now left the Waite house and talked to Rebecca. I think I'll quit while I'm ahead and try to get some sleep. sleep goodnight all. nu2gaming

Good morning everyone; I'm having a terrible time with those guys in the hotel. I can barely make it to the third room before they get me. Why is my character moving so slowly? nu2gaming
