Once I got stuck on those extra rooms of the Orphan Black game last week, I basically quit playing it. If you follow the 2 hints the first one is fine, but #2 is impossible to accomplish. There is a flying evil angel that sweeps across the room from one corner to the next each time my clone moves a square. There is no way to line up the characters in the proper spots because it takes an odd number of steps to get where the flying angel can’t kill you or the paramedic pursuing you but the path, no matter how circuitous is always an even number of steps.
Today at lunch I thought, ‘There has got to be a way. I’m going to try just one more time.’ When I opened the game I was presented with a whole new “world.” I’m now Cosima on the secret island where we left the show at the end of Season 4. Cool, they have tossed in some more frustrating maze-type action for me to play. For free. Not a bad deal for my initial $1.99 investment. This is probably a veiled promo for the premier of Season 5 of the show this Saturday. I’m cool with that.
The first room is kindergarten level just to introduce you to the new twist of the new world. And it is a twist literally, if you get one of the bad guys standing on a certain spot when you throw a switch the square under the bad guy rotates 90°. Room 2 was fairly simple, but I got kind of stuck in #3. There are 8 rooms, we’ll see how far I can get.
