Thanks for the notice, BrownEyedTigre smile Have been to GOG and bought it grin

[Never asked about the "save" system though - so am hoping it's a "save at will" one crazy]

A review I read commented on the helpful hint system. I'm an hour into the game and can find no evidence of a hint system. The puzzles are pretty easy, but I'd still like to know if I am missing something...? Great graphics.

I know of no in game hint system. The developer has made no such claim and viewing the discussions on Steam I see no reference to one.

From a review of the game on Steam:
"This is a delightful game. Willy Morgan is fair to the player; no walk through is needed for experienced players, and it will make a great game for new players due to an optional help feature."

Although I have to agree, I don't think there is a help feature. Unless he is referring to hitting the space bar to show the hotspots.

Regarding getting through the game, hitting the space bar to show the hotpots and the dialogue are the ways to continue on. smile

Just finished the game. I found it to be a lot of fun with its "tip of the cap" to its point and click predecessors. Although I got caught up a couple of head-scratching times, basically I was able to figure most puzzles out myself. The graphics were particularly well done. Highly recommend!

This is the game I intend to start next smile

The "walking" action of Willy is SO like that of George in the original Broken Sword games !! Love it !! lol

EDIT :

And after playing a chunk of the game I will say that not only do I love that distinctive walk, I love the whole game thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup
