I'll add a short note about my thoughts on the maps

Prehistoric Zack
apparently, people thought it was a bit harder than I intended

The Great Kaboom
Pretty short and a bit amusing, though I question the "choice" you're given, since you don't really have a choice anyway

Lost Way Chapel
Quite amusing npc's and a quite okay and not hard puzzle. There need to be a few of those as well.

Don't Feed the Troll
I actually loved this one. A great yet simple puzzle that required some thought.

A Hole in Time
This is quite a nice puzzle. Basic, but works well. Making the piano keep showing the a new choice whenever choosing right, and not when choosing wrong was a nice touch, given how it could be hard to hear the exact tones.

Space Station of IQ
Not so much IQ neccessary as Knowledge, but it works for most of the part. Congratulation on the St. Patrick award

The End of the World
Very atmospheric, rather creepy to be more spesific. nicely conveyed and the puzzles were quite okay as well. Only problem with it is how easily you can end up screwing up pushing on of the things, making the map unsolvable. I guess this is why it was adviced to save first, but still.

Another Portal
Designed as a later level dungeon, and thus it is possible that it ended up becoming a little bit difficult.

Horus Hours
Another concept I simply wanted to try, since there was enough time for it, though I'm a bit worried that the puzzles weren't quite intuitive

The Offspring Paradox
This was another sweet puzzle. The battlesystem worked great, and the concept is somewhat amusing. The mini game can be a little buggy in terms of you still controlling fruits which has landed on the edge of the potion bottle, but others than that it was a cool addition.

Switch it Up
A puzzle type I'm rather familiar with, and kind of fond implementing myself every now and then. So with that I did end up enjoying this one as well. It did take some thought and trial to get through though.

Pit of the Pendulum
Another puzzle with atmosphere. This one requires lot of exploring and has some good clever puzzles, and did beat me at one point towards the end due to short term idiocy on my end. I really liked this one, though I do question the use of trigonmetry as it's something some people might not have had too much
learned too much about it. Aside from that all puzzles were cool though.

The Ice Age
Not my favourite to be honest. it's short and okay, but also rather weird. A rather short Ice Age

Time Warrior
Loved this one as well. Lot of amusing touches and a nice puzzle. Due to nostalgia reasons, I kept expecting a random encounter to happen whenever traversing the world map though.

Lot's of good puzzles this time around

I'd redownload it just to be safe. Wouldn't want you to solve five INCREDIBLY HARD puzzles and beat a RIDICULOUSLY TOUGH boss only to have to do it all again.

But I SAID as much in a comment!

I haven't completed all the puzzles yet, but I'll give my 2 cents on the ones I have played so far...

Prehistoric Zack
Really neat engine for this one, far better than I could have ever done. The only problem was that it was tough in a non-befuddling way and more in an action-y kind of way.

The Great Kaboom
Hilarious concept, I really really liked this one. I wouldn't call it a puzzle though. Either way I enjoyed all ten seconds or so of this one.

Lost Way Chapel
Another darkly funny puzzle. Not too tough but enjoyable to play.

Don't Feed the Troll
Whoever made this puzzle is clearly a genius with devilishly good looks.

A Hole in Time
This was a nice clean puzzle that was tough enough to keep it interesting but not so much to make it aggravating.

Space Station of IQ
I thought this one was quite funny. It was also ironic that there were so many grammatical errors (some intentional, others not). I had a lot of fun with this one though.

The End of the World
Talk about creepy, wow. This one was really well done and was very innovative. It reminded me of a certain place in WoW (in outland) where there's a desolate town literally crumbling off the face of the land into the abyss.

Another Portal
Once again, Kazesui shows everyone up with his superior RMing skills. This puzzle was neat but it was just plain too hard for the wrong reasons (being super unforgiving for example or vague about what needs to be done). I could really see this being its own standalone game though, the building blocks are all there.

The Offspring Paradox
This puzzle glitched for me somehow.... (spoilers).... I walk in, fight mordred, then the old man comes and thanks me, then I've beaten it. It seemed oddly short/underdeveloped so I did some snooping and found out that there's more to the puzzle that I didn't get to see. If anyone can help me on this, the concept sounds really enticing.

The Ice Age
The problem with this puzzle is that there wasn't much befuddling to be had.

Zone of the Endings
With the exception of a screen-pan glitch that left my screen stuck, after I tampered with the file, I saw the neato end. I only wish there was one last befuddle to be had.


Overall, this was my first befuddle quest and I really enjoyed it! It was tons of fun and I'll definitely do something more elaborate for my next one.... which WILL happen, RIGHT KENTON?!?!?! The only downside was that the puzzles weren't in chronological order like they should have been.


I still have a few more to play before I give awards, so stay in touch!

The puzzles were placed in the order in which I haphazardly added them to the game. Chronological order probably makes more sense.
