Hints and tips

If you didn't get the steam puzzle, this is where you ask for some (not-too-obvious) hints  :hat:

Hello,

thank you for the demo! Playing it, it awakens the feelings I had when playing the original games.

However, I'm stuck very early on and I'm not sure if it is just me or a technical bug. I have tried everything - but nothing works.

I'm in the church: I have everything: The broom stick, the chewing gum, the bucket, the long rudder. I have filled the basin, lit the oil lamp.

I could imagine that the next step is to play the "horn" (stone) which is placed at the right in the church. And I can imagine that you use the stick. But Indy wouldn't do it. I also realize that there are some musical notes at the top inside the church. It is also strange that I have to click "Use" twice (and Indy always says "I can't use it") before "Use ... with" appears.

It's frustrating: I have tried everything with everything - also in the mountain. Nothing works...

Help would be very much appreciated!

@Indy1960 Have you been at the harbour?

I - on the other hand - need help with the steam puzzle. I am clearly missing an indicator if I doing something right. I activated 4 and can't get the last one.

@Indy1960

Hi, here's a couple hints and a solution.

Hint 1

Have you explored the harbour good enough? Have a feeling you might have missed something there.


Hint 2

There seems to be someone in the one of the boats.


Solution

Use Talk to on  the small boat/ship. :)

@pali

Hint:

You don't need the last one. There's a clue above the church's door.

Oh wow. My monitor was to dark so that I couldn't see the carvings up there. And I was running back and forth the cave and the church for ages. :D

Hello! Would it be possible to help me with the shield positionning puzzle please? I have read the inscription in the metal door but it is still not clear how the shields need to be positionned. Or perhaps I miss another clue? Thank you  :)

Hint  1
The clue for the shields is not on the metal door.

Hint 2
Did you see what happened with the metal door after it broke off?

Hint 3
Look to the right of the metal door.

Hint 4
The ice to the right got a crack.

Solution
Use the shovel with the ice.

Apparently several people had issues related to the darkness of their display.
I'll think of a better way for version 1.1.

I'm having trouble in Norway. I only have the shovel head, gum, lamp, lighter and oar. I have spoken to the fisherman and helped him fix his boat but stuck with what to do next.
Thanks
