What makes a puzzle?
Posted By: C LundDate: 10/2/05 8:36 a.m.

A question appeared to me between two polygons...

What makes a puzzle (as they appear in this game) a puzzle? IMO simply hiding a switch that opens a door isn't enough to constitute a puzzle. Nor is winding your way through a maze. The platforms in "Colony Ship for Sale" are puzzles, and so is the code in Septic Exodus (Evil) - IMO, of course.

But where is the boundry between "puzzle" and "not-puzzle"? Is there one? Any thoughts on this?

Not an important question, mind you.. ;)
