Author Comments

Hey hey,

EDIT 1: Thanks to fisholio for finding a bug in Puzzle Number 12 (Wired Numerals. Sorry for the inconvenience. Problem is now fixed.
ATTENTION: This game MAY be hard!

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for giving me helpful advices for this Puzzle Book. Not to mention the great paper background from Ronald Bien of naldzgraphics.net and grsites.com. Check out their sites. They're awesome!

Also, if you have an own invented puzzle, you can send it to me via private message or e-mail. If you're lucky, your puzzle will appear in the next Puzzle Book. For more information, click on the "ink bottle" in the Main Menu or the "Send your own puzzle" in the credits.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the second part!

An excellent puzzle game

The music gets old after awhile, but other than that, the game is fantastic! Graphics, concept, lethally pointy looking cursor, all great! But, just one little thing...

FuNaNdMoRe responds:

Thanks for the positive feedback. I really appreciate it.
Stay tuned for more Puzzle Books in the future ;)

Count all the numbers together. That should solve your problem. The solution will explain everything to you.

hard he said...

LIAR! ... of course that could just be me

I didn't like the fact that the jigsaw puzzle practically solved itself.
get the piece anywhere close to where it needed to go and it went there for you.

some of your math puzzles needed directions, I'm good at math but put a pile of numbers without apparent purpose puts my head into directionless thought.

of course that could be the point... never really got that

all in all a good game but not for everyone

FuNaNdMoRe responds:

Sorry for that :P

The puzzles are based on those (extremely) difficult puzzle sites on the web. They too contain barely information on solving the puzzles. That's why I thought it'd be a great idea to invent puzzles the same way. Just the picture or arrangements of letters/numbers and the player figures it out all by him/herself. It does seem like I'm making something wrong though.

Anyway, I'm trying to improve on my puzzle inventions, I promise ;)
Thanks for reviewing.

needs work

It's a good game, the graphics are nice, and the concept is fun, however, most puzzles throw you in without any instruction as to what the ojective is for each puzzle. it is hard to type in an answer when you don't know what you are supposed to be doing in the first place. It isn't that the puzzles are hard, it's that there are no accompanying rules telling you what the goal is.

FuNaNdMoRe responds:

The rules or instructions on how to figure out the puzzles are mostly (in this game) included in the puzzle text or somewhere on/in the images itself, not clearly, though.

If you mean instructions on how to play the game, they were on the Main Menu.

Too many Riddler puzzles

You know why the Batman villain The Riddler bugged me? Because, while there was a "correct" answer to his puzzles that remotely followed some trail of clues, the clues in themselves were not self-evident to anyone (other than Batman, somehow). This game suffers from the same problem; when you know the answer already, it kind of makes sense how the clue hints at it, but most of the time the clues don't help to find the answer and I have to use both of my hints, which make me feel stupid, because the girl practically gives you the answer instead of a better clue, as if it was obvious. The riddles were (usually) pretty good, so I'd focus more on those next time. Graphics, music, etc were all great, it was just the puzzles that bugged me.

(Spoilers ahead)

Of most note was the damned cell phone puzzle. How the hell was I supposed to know not only that the answer wasn't the name of an object (as was implied by the ransom note), but also to hit each button multiple times to come up with the number?

FuNaNdMoRe responds:

I know I may not be a good puzzle maker but inventing puzzles can usually be pretty difficult, since everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. I tried my best on figuring out how people will solve the puzzles or what hints I should include. Anyway, you're right about riddler puzzles, I will decrease their number in the following book (maybe).

About the puzzle. The cellphone was practically the "important tool", as it said in the title, of how to uncover the secret. The "second piece of paper" also said: "FUNNY --> #" which meant to convert FUNNY into a number. You could type in just "3" since the keypad number of a cellphone would be 3 which included the letter "F" but since F is in the third position before D and E, you had to type three times the keypad number 3, as you would do with your cellphone when writing a short message.

Thanks for reviewing,
