Hi stephen,

Yes, the jetpack is tricky. First, make sure that you are out in the main castle grounds, well away from the castle and any pathways. Then click on the jetpack to open it.

Place your cursor to the left of, and just slightly below, the halfway mark on the lever control. Then click-hold, and drag your cursor up a little. The lever moves straight to halfway.

If you simply double-click at that point, although the lever moves up without stopping at the quarter-mark, the game doesn't like that method, and...kaboom.

You might also double check that all your jetpack instructions sheets are printed correctly.

I, and most of the other girls read the Nancy Drew books a lot when we were kids in grade-school; they were considered "kid's books" or "juvenile literature." Therefore I would assume that the games are aimed at this demographic at lerast as much as adults. This brings rise to several questions.

First, my experience playing any of the Nancys is similar to what I see in the posts above mine in that there seem to be numerous places where the game is really finiky (ie. the jetpack above.)
I need to resort to walk-thrus far more frequently than in most other games to get by these points. Of all the approximately 200 games I have, there is only one I found impossibel to complete, walk-thru or no, and of course its a Nancy (Venice). So I.m wondering, if we as adults are having these problems, how does HER Interactive figure that a 10-12 year old would be able to make any progress at all. These issues are generally nowhere near so prevalent in most other games which don't have Nancy's specific appeal to kids.

Finally, in the past week I played two older games, Amerzone and Dracula I. Both these games were made in 1999-2000, yet they have a user-friendly 360 degree panning structure. In other words, this is old technology, so I can't understand why the Nancys even adopted the clunky, disorienting slide-show format in the first place, let alone still be sticking with it 25 or so games later. If I hadn't read Nancy as a kid, I would have played one or two of the games, and then just given up.

Glad you got through, stephen.

I agree with you, Antoinetta, that the ND games can be fiendishly difficult, not only in the standalone puzzles but also in figuring out exactly what needs to be done next in order to move forward. The task list helps enormously, but I too wonder how the younger gamer would manage without any referral to a walkthrough of some kind.

This is more a subject for the Discussions forum, however. smile
