Ok. So whenever the wizard leaves or naps you only get 15 minutes. Why? Why can't it be 25 minutes like the other 2 versions had?

Then there's the code thing with the trap door. Again, the other 2 didn't have a stupid code?

So I am done! I thought your game would be BETTER then IA's game and I was sadly wrong. So whenever someone makes a walkthrough, then and ONLY then will I play it!

It's true in Redux the wizard's absences are slightly shorter, but unlike the other versions, Redux gives you unlimited trips/naps to accomplish your goals, so it evens out. Also, absences become longer each time.

That's true. The others also lacked the place where you get the code. This game is not a 1:1 remake. We mentioned in advance. Certain things have changed. A few puzzles were added. This is one of them.

Still, this could an opportunity to have that true adventure feel back that was present in the eighties before GameFaqs and its like popped up. You'll have the opportunity to solve things on your own for a while. It can be very satisfying.

Don't get frustrated so quickly...playing adventures involve taking your time to work things out.

A cursory glance at your profile reveals that your most active topic on this forum is entitled, "Frustrated with QFG2VGA".

A pattern emerges...

This isn't a 1:1 remake. It contains a slew of new puzzles and new challenges. If you prefer a 1:1 remake, IA's version is better suited for your tastes. If you want to drop any preconcieved notions of what you think the game should be, I think you'll find it quite enjoyable. Take it for what it was meant to be though.

I would't be so frustrated if the puzzles in your games weren't so difficult. The Original KQ3, there was no stupid lever puzzle, the most annoying thing about that version, was typing the spells exact! The rest was fun.

I did play IA's version! Very enjoyable, only got stuck maybe twice. Even found the easter eggs as well.

If you need a hint, you can request one, but without complaints all the time, please.

The code is somewhere in Llewdor. Explore the entire valley from north to south. You'll come across a place you're not familiar with. Check that place out.

... you mean I didn't actually have to quit and start over when my only food item left to give the constantly-hungry wizard was the porridge and I hadn't managed to complete the spell? NOW you tell me! :o

Oh well, it went faster the second time...

I DID explore the valley! I even found Medusa's home and turned her to stone with the mirror. Now that was cool! You guys gave her an actual home! Instead of walking around the desert and being afraid of her.

Indeed. We stated in the manual there's no dead ends in the game. (unless you save somewhere in Llewdor with plenty of forbidden items while Manannan is only 5 seconds away from returning) That means you won't get stuck if you feed the wizard the porridge.

This was news to me as well. I guess he stops asking for food and makes you do chores instead? I was too scared to face Manannan without food so I restarted too. heh.

As long as you keep an eye on the timer you shouldn't ever get stuck.

Dude, I'm in IA, and I don't think the game is way too difficult! The lever puzzle isn't that hard. You just have to "break in" somewhere that's closed...

That was in response to people running out of food, I assume. Not about you. :)

Have you found the library yet? It is NOT in the wizard's house.

(_I_ never found the medusa's house, actually. I should go back and look for that sometime.)

Ok. I've been all over the valley and the desert. There is no library. Unless its in your head, or imagination. Do we need to take some medication to make us realize the little green men we are seeing, don't exist?

Why do people that don't like to solve puzzles play adventure games?

Do you think I'm too cynical when I say that few other genres require less active effort to beat if you have a walkthrough at your side?

Walkthroughs make things easier. You still have to figure some things on your own. Its more like a guide to help me, when I get stuck instead of waiting for people to respond with bs hints and junk.

It seems like a lot of townspeople have moved into Llewdor since 1986... ;)

Ok? Still don't get it. I know. Please send me a screen shot of this supposed town with houses and libraries and such. Otherwise, I will continue to think that its all in your heads.

Some people like reading stories, and many adventure games are entertaining to read through.

Keep going south from the spider cave.

Can't. Its either Left or Right. South is not an option. Nice try.
