Elephant devs..

[Post New]by WolfenRaindancer on Jan 5, 12 3:14 PM
I am enjoying this game...however, one thing I have noticed is I have had tools disappear right and left. Now in the early days, this happened all the time. But other game developers are beginning to catch on to the fact that knives, screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, hammers, axes, etc. are all reusable, and they don't make us continually replace them. Sorry, Elephant, I think this is a cop out and just a lazy way to keep a game going. Which kinda surprises me with this game...some of the puzzles are extremely difficult and time consuming to figure out, and yet it is so disappointing to have to keep hunting for basic tools, when I already had them once. I would much rather search for clues.

You are correct about that, and that is a perspective I had not thought about. I too would rather just continue the search. Well said, thanks.

Happy gaming!

If I ever get stuck in a haunted mansion/castle, I know I should always have a pair of scissors, a lighter and a crowbar on me at all times.

I noticed that too. I also had a tool I could of used to get the ink pen, but no it had to be tweezers. I hate this picky picky picky!

I'm with you but I also want a screwdriver.

Hi there,
Well, some items were resuable - but not necessarily in the manner you thought. LOL

NOTE TO DEVS,
I played on the second difficulty level and noticed that the Lousia's Memory chapter contained sparkles everywhere whereas all of the other chapters (including the Bonus chapter) did not. An oversight?

And please, stop telling me what I need to "open" something etc on the harder modes. I like to sort this out myself - even if it is the inside of a pen rather than a needle. LOL

Cheers
