Great review Rushes! I just finished it and sure glad you found it challenging too. It sure was more challenging for me. Don't think I have ever done so many second chances or not knowing where to go or what to do next. :lol:
Thank goodness for Mag's walkthrough. Don't know how she does it, but I sure thank her.

The 2 Zap-up puzzles were both trial and error for me. The logic was elusive. My carpal tunnel cried. :lol:

The last puzzle; I took a screen capture and worked that at my leisure. Cut and paste the components using my graphics program. Hahahahah. Is that cheating? wink12

I had help from Her Interactive.

Hi Mag, Your carpal tunnel deserves a wonderful rest now. No way is that cheating when you just slow it down a little.
I finally just copied a few of your answers to the puzzles that I couldn't do in the amount of time they gave you. Now that's cheating!!! :lol: Thank you so much for doing the walkthrough.

Thank you Rushes for an interesting and insightful review. I'll be buying the game eventually as I need my annual ND 'fix' - sounds like it's going to drive me up the wall! crazy

Just finished. Phew!
When I started the game I thought I would be both bored and right out of my comfort zone. The latter was certainly true; my brain just isn't wired to understand physics.
Bored? I loved it. It was so challenging, the puzzles so intriguing. I, also, had to peek at the walkthrough many times but found that I didn't lose the immersion in the plot.
Playing at master level, there were no phone calls from "dopey Ned". Such a relief not to have stupid Bess twittering away too.
This was a really "grown up" game.
So many thanks to Rushes for a review that made me want to try the game even when the synopsis on HER's website convinced me this game wasn't my thing.
And many thanks to MaG for getting me through it.
Long Live Gameboomers!

Very glad that you enjoyed it, meryl! The Master level has major benefits then, in eradicating Ned. lol12

I love Ned, don't you? He is so conventional and grounded. His girlfriend is never around, risking her life all the time, and he does not complain much.

I also love so far the details and complexity concerning how to produce electricity and Tesla's research. I think it is important for children to know that, if we are ever to solve the energy crisis and save the planet.

And if you think back to the Tomb of the Lost Queen, all this egyptology and hieroglyphs were not easy either.

I like Ned too and was surprised to hear he was "dopey" in the Amateur version. He and Nancy have always been so much more mature than the Hardy boys and Bess. (George is OK)
I find Nancy Drews quite challenging and the only reason I now play at senior level is so I can avoid much of the inane chatter.
Like you, I enjoy learning something complicated in each game. The games are very educational and i wish they had a wider distribution among young people in the UK. It's a fun way of learning... though not painless!

Thanks Rushes. I have the game but haven't started playing yet. Sounds like I'll like the master level.
