Difficulty of puzzles
Am I the only one who finds that the only way to pass puzzles is to just randomly click at stuff until I get it correct or can skip them? I try my hardest to work them out with pen and paper but I can't do it

They're quite easy, if you ask me. I've been expecting a bit harder challenges, but anyway, this game is just awesome.
Sorry for my poor English, lol.

Didn't need a sheet of paper even once for the entire game. Actually, didn't need anything additional at all except for the game itself, 'cause all the relevant info always at hand in-game. Can't really see the problem.

Some puzzles requires you to be skilled at mathematics I 100% agree, the puzzles were quite challenging without a doubt. Tho most can be solved by just patienctly searching for the most rational answer.

Required a bit of thinking, but for the most part it's not been too hard.

Well I guess I have been pretty sleepy when I start playing after work so I guess the lack of concentration must be the problem then.

I just want to say this game has beautiful graphics and audio. I own all the S.H. Games and in my opinion this is the best Game yet of the series. I appreciate there is a skip for puzzles. I was enjoying the game so much until I got stuck in a time response puzzle and now I fear the money I paid for the Game is a waste.

I really wish frogware would have made a skip for the part Sherlock and Watson have to lure the guard and Sherlock has to stab him with a hypo needle. If you miss the timing sneaking up behind the guard you have to keep starting over trying again. I must have tried over 100 times and I have read the clue in search engine but Sherlock always gets busted by the bouncer guard. LOL Sherlock gets busted by the bouncer in more than one way. Does anyone know a cheat tip to get past this part? Waiting until he gets past the corner is not working as suggested on Google.


Can anyone tell me their secret getting past this part? Frogware if you're listening please put skips on time release puzzles also in your games. I buy all of Frogware Games because the name stands for quality.

Except few puzzles (like the horse chess puzzle that requires some time), I found the other ones quite easy.

Hey I don't know if this helps but I found that the angle was a big factor, can't really explain it but it's kind of like in some shooting games your shots seem to miss unless you're at a certain angle (that's the best way I can explain it but doesn't seem to do it justice). It still might be a bug or something, like I couldn't find a way to do the puzzle when they dig the box out of the grave, whatever I click on just didn't cause any response on the screen so I had to skip that one :/
