Thank you all !
I have not been to Maray yet. Even if I followed the walkthorough - which I tried at first to avoid - is frustrating to the point that I have to throw in the towel on this one ! I don't see a game here with various puzzles - and if the puzzles are just going up and down stairs constantly and opening shortcuts and having to transport throughout the game, then, to me at least, it's not a game anymore.
I read about that maze and think I'll pass that one too. Watching the YouTube video sounds good at this point.
Thank you all again for your input - think I'll just replay Quern !!
Carol Reed where are you ??
