I finished the game and then went to look at a couple of things in the walkthrough and now I'm confused. The safe puzzle? I had already entered the correct answer before even posting in here about it and I swear, it did not take. After posting here and looking at UHS hints, I did something different and thought that was what made the safe open, but looking in the walkthrough that is not what worked. It was the original thing I tried which for some reason did not work when I first tried it. I even went back in the game to test it out but I was proved wrong.
Also, the puzzle in the temple where you pick up the last statue really doesn't make sense to me. I understand how the number is calculated but I don't understand how the answers that you enter into the slabs comes out to that number. I only got this puzzle by starting with 000 and working my way up until the right combination happened. Thankfully, it was not a puzzle that you had to back out of first to see whether it worked or not.
And, you know me, I really didn't understand the story that well but I did enjoy the gameplay anyway, which is what is more important to me!
Glad I replayed and now on to something else.
