I have been playing adventure games for a while. I haven't played as many as I would like though. I find some puzzles to be, to hard. Does anyone else have this problem?

The reason I brought this up is because I am playing Nibiru, and am having trouble with the key of the Gods puzzle. Hopefully I will get it.

Best Regards,
Preston smile

Preston, if worse comes to worse there is an excellent walk through on this website by Mag. I don't know how you feel about those things but sometimes we all need a little help.

I would finish very, very few adventure games without the occasional help from a walkthrough. And that's a fact! smile wave

I too, would finish very very little adventure games if it wasn't for a walkthrough smile . I wish I could do most of the puzzles on my on, but am just not talented in it.

Some people are just better at certain puzzals than others .I find some times that when you are stuck.Give it a rest .I like to ponder for a while but if really stuck ask for help.Its a fact of life that even the cleverest of us get stuck some times .Just like in real lfe .

Hi smile

On re-playing my games, I nearly always get stuck in exactly the same place as I did first time round !!

How bad is that ??

blush blush

Cheers.

I used to get so frustrated with some of the puzzles in a game smashpcthe first thing I do is go to the hints forum and what do you know,some one else is stuck in the same place!! Nice to know I'm not alone :/ then my next step is the walkthrough I would like to finish a game on my own,so far I haven't been able to duh I agree with DragonUK44 if you go away from it and come back most times I can solve it!! wave

I'm with you Preston. A lot of games I didn't bother finishing because the puzzles were too hard. One game in particular that comes to mind is the alien math puzzle in Rama, and I paid a lot of money for that game when it first came out. I also don't like games that tax your joints when you play them.

I ve gone to bed and woke up in the middle of the night with what I may think the answer is .I would rather use the hints forum as some times you see to much in a walk through and it can spoil the game but some times well .you have to to go on

Right. I enjoyed that puzzle in Nibiru. But some people just aren't able to solve that type of puzzle at all -- so they don't enjoy it at all. If you run into a puzzle you can't do and/or don't want to do, just use a walkthrough to get past it.

If all you need is a push, then try the Universal Hints System to get you going rather than a full-scale walkthrough.

I can't do sound puzzles myself.

blush The problems I really hate are the ones where I figure out what to do and still can't complete. I remember cursing that crystal chair in MYST IV because even after I figured out an answer I still wasn't quick enough to finish it. I also remember one of the Sherlock Holmes puzzles where I needed about two hours to get by a dog because I had to hit a particular pixal at exactly the proper moment. I don't mind being wrong (Indeed I'm used to it) but when I'm correct and still can't get the thing solved,I tend to say vile things to my computer. blush

Preston, I always try to solve them on my own. However, when I cease having fun and become frustrated, it's time to put the fun back in the game and get help.

I sometimes use Uhs, sometimes I check a Boomer Walkthrough, and sometimes I ask in the hints forum here which is excellent. thumbsup

Have to join the club here; more oft than not I reach the point of needing to look for help.
One type of puzzle I seldom have trouble with are sliders yet others I can't even grasp what is wanted.
