Okay, I admit to failing at the Maze of Madness. It is driving me mad.

Could you maybe post a quick spoiler for it? :|

Yeah these kinda puzzles break my brain. I am normally quite good at logic stuff, but this kind of puzzle just sends a signal upwards that is essentially "shutdown". :(

Sooo... a full walkthough through that one particular puzzle would be greatly appreciated!

Actually the Maze of Madness is pretty easy because there is nothing random to it.
Giving full spoilers ain't my style so here are my hints for you.
SpoilerShow
The maze has
a) a bunch of teleporters. Each sends you to a fixed target. Check one after another and note where each of them sends you. What may confuse you is that some teleporters also feature an additional change of heading beside the relocation so it's good to have a compass ready and make immediate notes on/to your map.
b) a bunch of buttons. Each does at least one thing. First only locate them. Once you charted every(!) teleporter head to a button, push it and then check what did change. Repeat until all buttons are done.

oh btw: once you solved the maze it may be wise to undo anything you did to solve it

it's a teleporter trick, flip the lever, keep watching it, step back away from it a couple steps, then back to the lever to actually open the door, then push the noisy control again :)

Me again about the secrets / level :)

I miss one on level 2 and there are so many buttons on walls that it would be difficult to me to say which one opens a secret or not.

Can someone help me ? a pm maybe better?

Thanks

:)

It should not be too hard to tell yet. If they don't open a nearby door it's very likely a secret or a treasure or a short-cut. Now some new secrets require a bit more than just pushing a button, like one on level 2. But fear not, the needed help is close. VERY close :D

Yes u right :)

In fact I was lazy with my map and did not note every secret whenever I hear the magic sound. Finishing the level, I checked the stats and saw I m missing one.

Komag was kind enough to pm me and I found which one I missed immediately.

:mrgreen: And no it was not the one in the cell :mrgreen:

Thanks :)
