I used to get so frustrated with some of the puzzles in a game
the 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
I agree with DragonUK44 if you go away from it and come back most times I can solve it!!
