Is it only me - Devils Triangel

I have no idea what is going on. The graphics are great and the acting is fine but I haven't a clue. Won't buy this game.

I enjoyed my free hour and I have just purchased it. It is very interesting. Graphics and story line are well done.

I wish there were instructions on the mini games b/c I am so lost...and if you click "hint" it solves the puzzle for you. But that's my only complaint.

Yeah, not what I call a hint.

Wow, that's quite the "hint"! I bought it this morning, but haven't started playing it yet. I'll have to keep a look out for that hint issue.

I did the same thing on the radar puzzle. I put the fuses back in, then I didn't know what I was supposed to do with the ones you fit together, clicked on hint thinking it would explain the puzzle. Solved that whole portion of it, then I figured out what to do on the radar screen that was pretty easy. It's like a minesweep type game. Oh well at least we figured out it did that at the beginning of the game.

I'm loving it! The puzzles are challenging enough to require thought, but not so difficult I can't get them. (Except that radar thingy. LOL, when I looked at the walkthrough, it was like, DUH! (Finslap to head.) And, no, it isn't like minesweeper at all! I got part of it by blind luck, but couldn't get the rest. It didn't make sense. But, I'm not mathematically inclined, either.

And the graphics are drop-dead gorgeous! Reminds me of the graphics in Myst: Exile.

I agree with all opinions here. I also demoed the game but had no clue what I was supposed to do. At least with some of them, like Drawn or RTR you can figure some of the things out for yourself but to have a game that you need the walkthrough for from step one is too much. I won't be buying this one. However, If Echoes From The Past gets out of Beta soon, I will definitely buy that one. WONDERFUL GAME!!!!!
Edited to add:

Oh, Goodness, Phat-- I love Exile! But even in that game, challenging as it is, I could do some of it on my own.

Echoes is MUCH harder than Devils Triangle, IMHO! Great game, but very challenging. Devils Triangle is, if you are used to LFAs, pretty linear and not too hard to figure out. It makes sense to me, anyway.

I'm totally stuck in Echoes, and think I must go back and engage in a pixel hunt to see what I missed for a clue. I got into the study, but can't find anything to pick up the seeds. I got into the armory, and can't find anything else. All the doors are locked, and there I am!

ETA: LOL, LL, Exile is the only Myst game I didn't need hints for. Riven is the hardest one, IMHO.

Phat--you're right. Riven is the one I was thinking of. But I like them all. Mysterious Journey is a prtetty good game of that type.

I am very happy that I have been able to do almost all of the game without needing hints. I made the mistake of asking for a hint on a game and discovered that it was solved so I started over and glanced at the walkthrough for some guidance. It was the puzzle where you were fixing the sonar and were at the third stage where colored numbers were generated after you clicked on the first one in the center. I could not figure out what was wanted, but a few glances and I went on to do the four puzzles, which were actually quite easy once I knew what I needed to do. So, I don't find the game too difficult but have no idea what would have been my attitude if I had not been doing these puzzles/mini-games for a couple years!

How can you play Echoes? Is it for beta testing only? How do you get to be a beta tester? I hope there is much more to Devil's Triangle than what the 30 minute demo gave. I was disappointed.

To those asking abt length - the game took me abt 5 hours to complete and I am pretty good at this style of game. I used just a couple hints and looked at walk-thru once, inadvertently skipped one puzzle by hitting the hint button.

I'm like PhatKhat-not mathematically inclined. Other than that I am so far really
enjoying this game. It's really raining outside right now, so perfect excuse to
continue enjoying Is this Echo game by big fish?? Sounds interesting

Jaguar994, anyone can read your posts on here, so I suggest you remove your e-mail address for your own safety. People can send you a PM if they can answer your question.

I read some of the posts and found them mostly very positive so I went and purchased the full download and did not even try the teaser. Now that I am finished I read more negative comments. I will have to go and play the game and see who is right. Maybe some need easier games to play.

I played 3 levels of this game last level being the sonar machine and then when I clicked on the island scene it flashed forward thru the end and stopped asking to play again. Has this happened to anyone else? I was going to purchase this game but with all the glitches and problems won't buy it unless they fix it.
