Thread: Swell

    Yes, that's how I feel. Here's the quote from Nordinho:

    If you want to play the game as it is intended, you shouldn't even be asking for hints for the first few days on the level. This way you can congratulate yourself when you finally get it. That is where the fun lies in the riddle, otherwise it would be same if you just clicked links on a walkthrough.

    Even people who have finished NotPron with all its 139 levels and received a certificate have taken weeks with swell's first 29 levels. The riddlers of this thread, then again, people first heard about the riddle 2 days ago and are now almost done. Can you see something wrong there?

    Thus, Kytten - you hadn't been stuck for ages - you hadn't even been stuck.

    All I'm saying is be patient and try to solve things for yourself before asking for help. Imagine how long it took us to come up with the riddles. You're not enjoying the game's full potential if you let someone else solve the mysteries for you.

    Thanks for reading, keep on swellin'!
    I'm no longer participating in this riddle.

    I'm sorry the Creator feels that way and in my opinion that's going to make a lot of people not want to play the riddle anymore if we can't ask for help, including me. If I can't get pass the level my self and I can't ask for help then I'm not going to play it anymore.

    @Brain--Yes, we are within the rules here and on Nordinho, but I don't like being reprimanded for it. Feel free to continue working on it and giving hints, but I'm done.

    @Shining--I completely agree. My idea of enjoying a riddle does not include spending weeks or months on a single level.

    yeah I'm not going to spend a month on a 20 level riddle, Thats not fun to me at all. if it had over 100 like Oddpawn then yeah I would, as long as I could have help through it.

    i also agree , if we could'nt help each other , they would'nt have very many people playing , its part of the fun on these forums , each and every person has their weaknesses and strengths and , share them between each other , thats what the forums are here for , its not a school exam , after all
    Just keep smiling !!!

    No offence but who says we need to listen to the creator. I usually try to respect everyones wishes but this is a game forum designed to help people if there having trouble on a game. its meant to be fun and without nudges here and there alot of people would give up. Its not nearly as fun doing a riddle alone, its a shame the creators acting like this because its a good riddle. I cant speak for anyone else but I'm not going to let them ruin our fun and I will continue the riddle and will be willing to hint if anyone needs it.

    I am not playing this riddle, (though this all made me curious about it), but I agree with you all.

    It's not the first time a riddle creator wished from the players to solve their riddles all by themselves. However I think the players are free to choose if they would like some help with it or not. Most riddle players will first try to solve a level by themselves but when they get stuck or ran out of ideas they ask for a little help or nudge. That is also the purpose of this whole thread.
    Walkthroughs, answers and even too big spoilers are not allowed here (like everyone knows). And the same counts for Nordinho.
    Generally I respect the wishes of a game creator, but I really think it is too much asked to expect from people to be stuck for weeks or even months.

    And I agree, solving riddles together, especially tough ones, just doubles the fun.
