Unfair guess the verb, January 4, 2022
The conclusion of the game is a fun crunchy arithmetic logic puzzle. The puzzles leading up to it are not as fun.
There's an annoying, very tightly timed puzzle where you have to avoid a sentry who arrives at a predictable time, requiring you to UNDO a bunch to avoid him.
Inside that room, there's a "guess the verb" puzzle using a non-standard verb. (Spoiler - click to show)You have to "spin the painting" even though it says you can't "push the painting." "It can't be pushed, since a nail is holding it to the wall." I thought this was unfair.
And in the puzzle with the host, if you guess the right thing to do, he delivers a line of dialog, but the game gives no indication that you've solved the puzzle. (Spoiler - click to show)When you "hit the host," he complains about it, but it turns out that once you hit him, he's unable to stop you from opening the door. The game doesn't make that clear enough; I had to read the source to solve this puzzle.
The logic puzzle at the end was fun, though!
