    The first question was rather simple, I thought the second was also simple, but it didn't work.

    Second Level

    Riddle:
    There were 2 ducks in front of a duck and 2 ducks behind a duck and one duck in the middle
    How many ducks were there in total?


    My Answer:
    -3

    Reason:

    • .
    • .
    • .
    Let's say every dot is duck:
    - there are 2 ducks in front of a duck (the 2 first dots)
    - There are 2 ducks behind a duck (the 2 last dots)
    - There is a duck in the middle (the middle dot)
    - There are 3 ducks in total (the 3 dots)

    So, why is this wrong?

    I've tried:
    -3
    -3 ducks
    -3 duck
    -3ducks
    -3duck

    None of them worked.
    Give me the reason why my answer is wrong, normally there wouldn't be any typo's (test it 1 time and you've found all typo's)


    I will wait untill you've given the reason my answer was wrong.
    After that, I will test it again.

    Edit:
    Maybe you can create a quest per level?
    Like this:

    Level:
    Riddle:
    <Riddle>
    Answer Example:
    e.g.:
    -# (Where # is a number)
    -Word (Where "Word" is your answer).


    Tip for testing

    When you test the map, just go through all levels without any cheats (if there are any), type your answers (it takes about 5-10min since you know the answers), if you cannot get past a level, open the trigger editor (it's still on, since you are testing the map), check the answer for that level.
    Check if you've copied the typo for other players.
    go on with testing

    You mean something like a skill then players can use the skill for hints?
    3times per game or per level?

    Here's my review, as I have said earlier (thanks for the update, it wasn't really smart of me either, but other people with the same problem will also be happy ^^).

    Gameplay

    • It's a Riddle-game without a real 'gameplay'
    • It isn't original, though it hasn't been made a lot (good riddle-maps are hard to find, most of them contain lame riddles).
    • The riddles are very fun to say at least, they aren't of those stupid, dumb riddles, but riddles where you actually have to think ^^
    • There were no quests, which makes it a little bit harder, because you've got to find the answer all on your own
    • There are no hints (maybe show a hint after X seconds, or after X wrong answers)
    • Not an interessting terrain (probably isn't ment to), but a few things to clean it up would make it more comfortable to play.

    Triggers

    Triggering a riddle-map is very simple, but because it is a riddle-map, I am not going to let this affect the rating.
    I assume there aren't any leaks and all triggers are working exactly the way they are supposed to work.

    Riddles

    • Riddle 1-3: Easy, but rather fun opening riddles.
    • Riddle 4-5: Good lord, there were so many possible answers :p
    • Riddle 6-7: Idem riddle 1-3 (very easy because of the doodads, though)
    • Riddle 8-11: I already knew (variations) of those, but there are several possibilities as well
    • Riddle 12-13: I have to admit... I googled them (I was really close to 13 though :p)
    That's all, I'm sorry :D

    Overall

    It's a pretty good map, but it needs some work.
    I would recommend using "as a substring", not "as an exact match" for some riddles, this will clear some common problems.
    A few hints could also be usefull and, as I have already said before, say how you need to formulate your answer.
    I will send you my answer of level 5, I hope you can do something about this (you can also make about 5 events per player per riddle, so he has a few options to formulate his answer).

    I will rate this map 3/5

    Most answers are quite simple only some riddles like the 1 with the number pattern needs time to do. Even if you don't know the answer, you can use the Skip Level skill (Only red)

    No, i meant that you could 3 times PER GAME could get a hint, by typing -hint. just so, if you're determined to finish the game, and don't want to look them all up, have a chance to do it... it might be single player only... for guys like me, Whom isn't not englishmen, and therefore haven't been bottlefed with those riddles, have a chance.

    Reviewing a map of this genre is quite difficult, but I'll give it a try.

    This is my review of Riddle Game v0.4

    Pros:
    -Required creative thinking.
    -The levels were skip-able, so you were never forced to stay very long on a single riddle.

    Cons:
    -Not really replayable after you complete it once.
    -The riddles were taken from other sources which you didn't credit.
    -While creative, the idea has been done before.

    Rating: 2.5 and recommended for approval.

    I don't normally recommend maps with a score below 2.5, but you seem willing to continue updating this.
