View Full Version : stuff makes no sense

So Escape From Monkey Island is just a bit confusing. I have a walkthrough that I had to abuse to figure out some stuff so far, and even after having the solutions, I still don't know how you are supposed to figure it out by yourself. First, how do I know what Pegnose Pete smells like? Why do you combine those certain items in the cologne bottle??? Did I miss something? Second, why do the pictures on the little device stand for the letters that they do??? I see no rhyme or reason for this!! There is no pattern! It makes no sense!! This game is looking to be too darn difficult and incomprehensible!

1. Sniff on the handkerchief Pegnose Pete dropped in the bank and you get a hint of the ingredients.
2. Deadeye Dave tells you to spray him with an amplified version.
3. A monkey was in charge of the system. It must have been easier for him with symbols rather than the letters.

Well I suppose the whole smell thing makes sense, but I still don't get how the person playing the game is supposed to decipher the whole symbols standing for letters thing, because I don't see how the creators of the game even came up with what symbol will stand for what letters.

The symbols are in alphabetical order... by that, I mean that the letters they represent are in alphabetical order....
