Solve Puzzles Using Your Imagination

Don’t be afraid to use your imagination to solve each of the increasingly elaborate puzzles. Each new invention has a unique mechanic, introducing new ways to help your soldiers to reach their destination. 

From toy drums to bounce your soldiers to safety, cannons to create makeshift bridges, trains to forge new trails to pin wheels and balloon machines to glide across the room you might even find that there are a variety of ways to solve each of the puzzles! 

A Relaxed Puzzle Adventure

Tin Hearts is a challenging puzzle adventure – but it is not punishing. Instead, we have aimed to create a relaxing atmosphere, free of severe consequences in the players’ actions. For example, it is possible to reverse time to save your soldiers from an unsettling fate, but most puzzles can be finished without every single soldier reaching the destination, too! At the very least, we hope you will try!

Manipulate the Clock! 

As the adventure continues, Tin Hearts will introduce the player to the Cuckoo Clock and Pocket Watch mechanics, unlocking the ability to manipulate time which in turn helps increasingly with the puzzle solving process. 

Players will find they can halt time completely to receive a fuller picture of what they need to do, reverse time to change the course of action, or alternatively they can speed up time when the puzzle has been solved!

Push the Chicken! 

Finally – be sure to keep an eye out for the hidden miniature toy chickens placed throughout Tin Hearts. Reminiscent of our time on Fable at Lionhead Studios, give the chickens a push for a fun Easter Egg!
