Hints?
« on: May 12, 2009, 02:03:39 AM »
I love the game.  Actually, I'm addicted.
But what do I do when I get stuck?!

Is it possible for you guys to implement a hint system in a future patch?

PS:  when I finally do get past those tough levels I realize how easy the solution was... but still- make a hint system?  (im stuck on "Hidden Pipes")

If you can't finish a level, skip it for now and come back later.  If you don't have enough stars to unlock the next level, try earning more in Challenge Mode.  And if you just can't wait to try out new puzzles, you may find some helpful cheat codes in the Cogs FAQ at http://www.lazy8studios.com/faq.

I think we tossed around ideas for doing hints at one point but ultimately decided too much time to implement that could be spent on other aspects of the game.  Regarding the puzzle you're on, I can at least tell you you need to use all the pipes on the board.  Try connecting to the one on the bottom-right edge first.

I'm surprised no one has done anything in the way of a Cogs walk-through yet.  Regardless I'm happy to provide text-based hints if you get stuck again. ;)

I think we all get a little bit distracted from the main topicstarter's theme
