Leaves 2, The Return

Postby draclvr » Wed Aug 23, 2017 11:58 am

I am a glutton for puzzle punishment! I started the second Leaves game last weekend. Very clever puzzling with some which make my brain hurt! Of course, puzzling is not my strong suit, but these are fun in a twisted sort of way!

I'm having the hardest time with theses little arrow puzzles. At first glance they look so easy!

I just finished this game. Loved it! The puzzles were more involved, I think. The one with all the number sets (3, 4, 5, and 6 digits) was the toughest, I think. The in-game help was good, although it gave you the actual solution....where I would have preferred just a hint. Made the little critters happy again! I'd love to see a Leaves 3!

I'm with you - ready for a Leaves 3 even though the puzzles some times drive me nuts! Sometimes even the solution given in the "help" still didn't help me figure out the logic!

In Leaves 2, I solved the door maze puzzle with the galumphing guy, but I can't seem to find a pattern for the changeable noses on the wall in his room. I assume that when the hints section shows a big red X it means that I don't have something to solve it yet. A nudge would be nice. :)

I did finally solve the crossnumber puzzle. I used the hints but only copied down a small section and did the rest on my own. I had been off by a mile with the 6 digit numbers, which, of course, threw everything out of whack.

You are correct - you can't do the noses until later in the game when you pick up another item.

That crossnumber puzzle was a bear. I found the one place that one of the 6 digit numbers would work. It actually made it doable from there.

I did something similar, JK. But it was still a bear!

Well, I finally sent the little guys flying with their leaves. Other than it being a bit of a pain putting in the maze codes each time, I really had fun with this one. The art is fantastic, and I really liked the music as well. It took me a while to figure out how to activate the water puzzle in the yellow hut. At first I thought the 3 items were just part of the scenery, but I guess that was the idea. It was a bit of an aha moment when I realized what I had to do. Oh, and I was so very glad that the disk puzzle with black and white squares was so much simpler this time.

It's so nice to have a beautiful, wonderfully done puzzle game again. If Amanita put out more of them, I'd love it. My favorite of theirs is still Machinarium. I'd love to see more of my little robots.
