Lost Pig type puzzle complexity - an IFDB Poll

by Mostly Useless
RSS Feed

I haven't played a lot of IF, as I'm often put off by what are (for me) difficult puzzles. Without doubt the most satisfaction I've had from finishing a game has been Admiral Jota's Lost Pig, and I would love to hear about other games with a similar level of puzzle complexity. Thanks!

Edited to add: To clarify, I am not looking for puzzle free games, just ones that offer a level of challenge similar to Lost Pig.
