USE OF HINTS, WALKTHROUGHS & SKIP


Some players believe that using the Skip button or the Walkthroughs and Hints to give you a nudge is wrong – that they shouldn’t be allowed. That is fine for them – they can play the game however they wish. But I think that it is good to have it on hand. A player can be as disciplined or relaxed as they wish to be. Besides, there is nothing worse for the blood pressure than sitting fully frustrated and getting nowhere. If a nudge gets you moving again, then the next time you play the game – unless you have left too much time between plays, or you have short term memory loss – you will have a more successful and enjoyable experience. And that surely is the whole point in playing computer games!

About judsartwork

I write reviews of Adventure and Hidden Object games that are Crime, Fantasy, SciFi, Renovation, Travel, Quest and/or Mystery by genre. I have a Masters in Writing (2006) and have been writing novels, both crime and fantasy for many years; plus Haiku, verse, and prose both fictional and literary. I am also an artist of modern, Acrylic, textural and hard edge work, underwater, fantasy, expressionist, and Cosmos paintings. I use mixed media (Acrylic, Watercolour, Pastels) in textural Monoprints, finding surprises to expose within each work. Having both an analytical and creative mind has meant that I have strong powers of observation, and the persistence required to follow computer problems through till I solve them. Of course I am not always successful, but am willing to ask for a little help in order to then unlock the main problem myself. My Troubleshooting Blog, 'Problems and Solutions', was the result of my tenacity.
