The last few days with so many new players, have got me thinking ( lol yes.. its been known to happen).
There are a lot of intro's and a lot of new players start mixing them up etc..
Would it not be better to have basic intro puzzles and then have some of the others, actually linked to a science puzzle?
The intro links would be to <15 puzzles, not all the others.
For example, alignment tool..when a new player goes to play a science puzzle that is alignment based, the alignment intro comes up, they have to pass that in order to "unlock" the actual science puzzle.
A lot of games have this type of strategy
Same could be done with the other "specialised" intro puzzles.
New players would have a higher change of actually learning the tool better and retaining the knowledge.
I dont see the point of teaching people something they may not get to use for a month, by which time they have forgotten it, as they never got to practice what they learnt.
I realise there is probably too much work associated with setting something like that up, but it was just a thought I had after heavy involvement with lots of new players the last few days
