Following our review of Myst III: Exile yesterday, today IMG has posted a little help guide to get you through the game. Entitled "A Spoiler-Free Cure for Fear of Myst", the article offers a few general tips, how to solve puzzles, and more. Here's a brief snippet from the article:

What to do

The flipside of all this peaceful wandering, with no guide and no one to fight, is that quite often you have no idea what to do next. Thereíll be miles of corridor, a door or two that wonít open, some switches that donít seem to do anything, and maybe a complicated machine with innumerable controls and no apparent function. To quote the late Mr. Douglas Adams, donít panic. Follow these simple guidelines instead.


Stop, look, and listen

This might seem obvious, but in a game thatís mostly a series of still pictures, you have to look at things very carefully. From each step along the way, you can see in several directions. Useful information might be in the far background, or in the placement of a shadow, or a side path may be hidden except from one particular angle. Blow thru the worlds along the obvious routes first, if thatís your style, but eventually youíll have to stand in every spot and look in every direction to be sure you havenít missed something.


Sound is also important. Frequently, what you can or canít hear constitutes a major clue. Sounds can even be the very elements of a puzzle. Wear headphones or turn up the volume.

Be sure to check out the rest of the article. And in case you missed it, be sure to also check out our review of Myst III: Exile.
