Adventure game tricks, heh...Click on anything that looks remotely suspiciously out of place. Hey, is that a piece of splinter sticking out of the wood? It's a key! I'm a very bad pixel hunter. frown

Volkana/ If you want big pockets, look no further than the Monkey Island series - hehe, where were you putting THAT Guybrush?

It really boggles the mind that everybody seem to want to lock a door with a key and leave the key there. razz It's almost like they want you to get out.

Crowbars and ropes--what would adventure gamers do without them? lol

My special favorite was using a frozen worm to open a door in Tony Tough and the Night of the Roasted Moths...rotfl

Funny though, isn't it - our hero/heroine sets out on his/her quest to do some big-time adventuring - and they "forget" EVERYTHING that could be useful to them. No pocketknife, no matches, no money even. Pockets full of zilch. Then it's "Oh shucks, I really need such-and-such, now where might I find it?" The end result is me shouting at my monitor: "You should have thought of that before you left home, you great nit!"

Then Arthur Dent brings along pocket fluff. Pocket fluff!

You're kidding? A frozen worm? rotfl

I did remember one more trick and i also use it recently. It's the one you take a simple bottle of the garbage and you make an excellent wine or champagne by putting things in it (for bribing different characters usually drunkers). In the last game i played, i put a strawberry ice cream in the bottle to make the liquid inside look like wine. An expensive one...

Not kidding at all--
Click to reveal..
there was a sort of shack that you needed to get into, and the only way to do it was to freeze the worm and use it to poke in the keyhole and open the door!


It was a really fun game, if you like your puzzles slightly weird. I know it drove some very logical type gamers crazy...lol

How about doors that always open away from you no matter which direction you're coming from. And a crowbar should always be in your inventory by default.

Crowbars, rusty pipes etc... I can even remember how many times i used a crowbar or something similar to open a door, a window, a crate. Very useful indeed...
The new one in this category was the frozen worm that is mentioned above. I just can't forget about it... lol
