I'm taking a "frustration break" from this game right now. I think there are 3 chapters and I am in the 2nd.

Mostly the game has been simple up until now. There was one puzzle I couldn't figure out even reading the "info" given, and used the walkthrough to solve. I started it last night but put it away until today thinking I might get it better after some sleep, but nope! I still didn't "see" how it really worked. I think I see it but it's lame to me if that's right. I think it is called the handbag or bag puzzle and is done in your inventory. There was also a slider that took a bit of time but I got it.

Right now, I am at a different slider type puzzle. It is a square of 25 squares, 5 across and 5 down. In this 25 squares is a portrait that you have to rearrange. Outside of the portrait frame, there are 5 more squares on each side and there is one extra piece. You slide the whole row or column to change the portrait. I got it to where 3 pieces were in the wrong places but then I ended up messing the whole portrait up again and decided it is break time. crazy

I no doubt would have used the skip button with the puzzles you mentioned - I am just no good at them.

Except for the fact that it froze up a couple times even crashing to desktop once, I liked this game. Better than the Harrowed Halls new game which disappointed me.

I didn't have any freeze up issues but there were a couple of long load times. The game did have some different puzzles (at least to me, but I don't play as much of these games as some people do, so not sure about that).
