stuck with oil can?

[Post New]by LNtheSpy on Jan 16, 13 9:10 AM
I glad this was so easy for others, however I am not one of them...
I have an oil can can NOT find where to go. Hint keeps taking me back to the bridge thing says "needs more power"????? Where do I go from here???

Hi LNtheSpy,
I also had quite a problem with the bridge and then I figured it out this way.
Power in this game comes from playing HOS as I understand. If you played the hidden object scene below the bridge and then you played the mini-game with the pipes, you are sure to have enough power. Then you just take the oilcan and apply it to the rust on the bridge. I hope it helped you somehow.

Just forgot, did you use a screwdriver to open the bridge mechanism? Once you've done it, you will then click the mechanism again and the mini game with pipes will appear.

Yes I did..! When I click on pipes it tells me "not enough power"... Think I should start over?

What I found confusing, was the oil had to be applied to a
pipe near the upper right corner, even tho' I was told it
was rusty somewhere near the control panel. But, I did
indeed do a pipe puzzle, first.

Excuse me, if I repeat in some points my post. Just to make sure I made myself understood.

You collect items at the bridge. Then you go under the bridge where you see that you have to fix the control panel. You click at the bottom of the screen, below those mechanisms which bring you to another HOS. Then you return to the bridge mechanism which you open with the screwdriver. Once opened, you see a red spot at the mechanism which you click and this brings you to the mini-game with pipes. After the mini-game you click the lever of the mechanism. It says you need to oil the piston rod for which you take the oil can and apply to the piston rod.

I have the same problem. Thanks, dachs, I will try what you said and then report back here. The Hint system stinks. It doesn't really give you any hints at all. I wonder why some people said the game was too easy. I think it's difficult. haha
