Some puzzles are **** like The Pillared Hallway !

Post by Neil79 » Mon Apr 16, 2012 10:59 pm

I know a game needs to be fun but some puzzles are just so frustrating that i don't find that fun at all, even the walkthroughs are useless and yes I have the scrolls and still can't make headway with it!..

Can someone please tell me the way past this puzzle the Pillared hallway on level 9 in easy moving terms..

Forward - F
Left - L
Right - R

Some Clarification into how the note works for those interested.
SpoilerShow
Two times left She slithers,
Once right,
Once left,
Three times right and
twice more is left.
This She repeats twice.

Basically it is telling how many times to move forward on which side.

Two Times left she slithers. = Move forward on the left side twice

So basically if your looking forward like a snake would you slide to the left move forward twice then side to the right... ect.

At lest that was the logic leap I made when I figured it out.
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
My end game stats LoG 1st play through

I think this is a great puzzle, except for one thing - it's difficult to discover where to start.

This is the one thing I'd change in this game - I'd make it so that you entered the Pillared Hallway from the side instead of from behind it, and make it so that you must start from the back wall.

That way, people are less likely to do the correct thing, but from the wrong starting position, and then think their idea was incorrect.

Wow. That's immensely stupid.
You're not slithering at all. You're moving forward. The note is actually very misleading. It should read 2 times foreward, right once, foreward once, left once, foreward this many times.

I have that note and I was expecting it to be some kind of pattern of some kind of snake creature later on, not a fucking instruction manual for walking down a hall.

If you imagine a giant snake doing it, it kind of makes sense.
