What if we get stuck?
The game has a in-built clue system. You can request a clue at any time, the less clues the better. The clue will be tailored to the stage of the game you are currently facing. You do not lose any game time by asking for a clue, but a penalty of 5 minutes is shown against your final time for each clue used.
What if we're still stuck after the clue?
Don't worry, after you have requested a clue, you are also then given an option to request the complete solution to the puzzle you are currently facing.
How do I interact with my team?
All the puzzles in the games are shared, meaning if one player does something, the other players will be able to see and react to this too.
