I'm at level 3, and I believe that I have conquered all the rooms, because I can't find any more. BUT the big blue door doesn't want to open. I have walked around the dungeon for at least 2 hours but still no more rooms. Maybe it is a bug.

Here's an easy way to find out: post a reply to this message. To the right of the Message box is a link that says "Insert DROD Room image". Use that to navigate to the third level and see if you can find the room you are missing.

If I had to guess it would be 3S 1W.

Game on,

Use logic, really. There are a two main things that can be figured out just by looking at the scrolls.

After this, it is probably easiest to write something down on paper (That is what I did). However, trial and error can work - you'll see why when you solve it.

There is also a post on the forum somewhere about it. It asked how few orbs you needed for the quickest solution. I think it's five, but there is a longer way which is easier to figure this out.

Hope this helps.....

There is in fact a stupidly simple solution to this puzzle, which is the way I always solve it. This solution involves nine orb strikes. The fastest solution is 5 orbs, but that one takes some time and effort to calculate out.

I thought it could be done in 5 hits.

So did I. Guess I'll have to go dig up that thread again.

numbering the orbs from the top. I didn't think it was that hard to work out.

Pipped at the post. :~(

Not the fewest orb hits, but the simplest method. I think Erik once said this is his favoured way to solve this room, too.

You have to hit the top orb twice in your way, and you don't have to include the bottom orb.

I might not have to hit the bottom one, but I assure you I don't have to hit the top orb twice, just the one that toggles 4 and 5.

Then you're probably using a different solution, because in the bottom-to-top version, it's 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,7.

That's really bizarre, I was sure it never required the second 1 hit. Ah well, submitted and corrected.

Wouldn't you have had to write that down somewhere?
