Selected Test Results

What works

Everything unless you play with keyboard.

There are some little glitches, they are explained in the part below.

 

What does not

Playing with mouse.

Some textures are missing, it's about two or three on the whole game and these are really not important.

Sting doesn't glow enough to light your path at the beggining of "Riddles in the Dark", it makes the first steps difficult because you have to guess your path in the complete darkness but it's really short, about ten seconds of darkness till you find the other cave which got lights.

In "Riddles in the Dark" level, you have to take a mugg lift. You MUST kill the goblin and the worm before activating the key, or the game will crash. You must skip videos when you take keys in that level. I know one of them makes the game crash and I skipped all of them after that, I can't remember which has a bug and I don't know if the other keysalso make the game crash.

You also have to skip the videos from the three spiders sisters, at the end of "Flies and Spiders" level, for the same reason than the key's one in "Riddles in the Dark".

Some times, the thief in Lake-Town refuses to move so you can't follow him and you can't go through the level. You must use the menu to reload the game manually.
