    Those Puzzles

    Post  Dio on Wed Mar 18, 2009 11:15 am

    I'm reffering to a specific type of puzzle,
    it's a random encounter rarely found but no matter what game this puzzle is in you WILL hate it by the time you solve it.
    What is this puzzle?

    The displaced area maze puzzle.
    It's when your in a series of area which for a maze in the fact you'll run through them and find yourself back where you were before, following the path you came from might take you somewhere completely diffrent, and chances are there is only one 'Proper' exit from the maze, and it like to laugh at you by confusing you into walking back out the entrance.

    Defiance of the Shrine maiden, a touhou RPG game, had one of these.
    It took myself and mcmicken working as a team a whole night to map out and get through the area, and this was all based in a series of 'slightly diffrent versions of the same playground' type maze.
    Then I played the retro game; ZORK I.
    It's text based, oh and I hope you don't go nuts from the phrase.

    "You are in a series of tangled passageways, all alike."
    Because thats the only hint you get from the game.
    In order to work out what room a room is you have to try and match it up to a series of possible rooms of which you don't know how many diffrent rooms by repeatedly finding your way to the same sequence of rooms and trying to exit diffrent entances and seeing which ones do and don't work, yes you have to exit the room to find out what room it was...

    ARGHH!!

    The only real way other than stupidly good luck is to try and make a map and work out what links to what.
    Though in the case of Defiant of the Shrine maiden we identified atleast 21 diffrent unique areas in the chain before we found the exit.

    Now that was a fun night...not frustrating in the slightest.

    But seriously, despite how annoying they are, it's one of the puzzles you feel like you've achieved something when you complete it.

    Still bloody annoying though.
