I finally figured out how to use the “save” functionality with the Chameleon. When you access the menu it notices when the image has changed (after save game to disk) and asks if you want to update the image. Works like a charm, but you have to remember to do this first before turning off the computer.
Sadly though, I wasn’t able to solve all the puzzles on my own. Once again, I was too impatient and I decided I needed help. Which was hard to find because there aren’t many walkthroughs online. Only after thinking about searching in German, did I find any: Lösung baby!
The part where you have to do something with the sword didn’t make sense to me. I had tried the axe already, as I thought that was a more likely approach.
And also the second thing you have to do with the sword I don’t think I would have figured out for myself. Although in hindsight it sounds logical I guess. I had already tried the second part of the act after all.
The ending was a bit abrupt. After finding all the gemstones it was suddenly over. Still I loved the game. Great graphics, music, controls, humor, puzzles and atmosphere.
