  • Which games only have one, linear solution?

    Hey all, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this topic, so bear with me.

    I'm working my way through some of the older games and if memory serves, some of the really early ones (like Stay Tuned for Danger) only have one path to success, and if you forget to do something simple (like pick up a pair of pliers), you have to start the entire game over. At least, that's how it was back in the day when the games first came out!

    Can anyone tell me 1. which games, if any, are still like this if I were to purchase the digital downloads now, and 2. whether there have been any downloadable updates made available to fix this problem?

    Thank you!

    I once had a snag in Phantom of Venice that I couldn't get past:
    if you forget to give Colin the mosaic tile before he leaves
    , but STFD and the pliers is the only other one I have come across- there still isn't a fix for that..

    There is also a problem in some HAU games, where the screen will freeze when you are trying to tell Kyler something near the end, but there is a game patch to fix this.

    You can find an entire list of game patches here: http://www.herinteractive.com/support/game-patches/

      This is so helpful to know. I had just assumed the early ones were all like that because STFD happened to be the very first one I played as a kid! Thanks so much.
