You have many opportunites to die here especially in the caves!! So saving your game frequently is wise. The many rooms in the cave can make you go crazy literally! You can only carry so many items at a time so you have to be careful what you choose to bring with you as you might need these things later on in the game. Sometimes you can go back and get the items, but sometimes you can't and you have to start all over again. A few puzzles are not logical and they are more based on luck than anything else.
Definitely a good game for someone starting out on adventure games. Adventure game lovers will also find it entertaining. And remember if you are stuck at a part, just save your game and try anything you can think of!
