I just downloaded Minerva and it's great except.....the part in map 4 with infinite zombies and no apparent way forward. After killing about 3 million zombies I finally figured it out. I was literally about 2 more minutes of insanity away from uninstalling this (and jumping out the damn window!)

Note to the developer: seeing as you don't have the luxury of extensive beta-test teams to tweak the difficulty, please consider the following advice in lieu. Please, god, never ever ever force the player to solve a quite subtle puzzle while throwing infinite freaking zombies at them! In fact, just never force them to face infinite zombies period. I'd rather face 50 zombies than have to deal with infinity of them, at least I can eventually have a chance to kill them all....

Hello and welcome to the forum. I think this final puzzle was the one which created the most dental gnashing among the players. The turrets, if placed carefully, as well as the Magical Box of Infinite Grenades, do give you more time to look around and notice the valve beneath, then try to blow the green door open, then go down, turn the valve, go back up, turn the second valve, and wait for the explosion.

MINERVA is not standard FPS fare, in that it succeeds in rewarding clever and conservative rather than dexterous playing styles. How did you feel when the confiscation field took away your weapons?
