Hint system

Video game concept

Includes some form of hint system, either something that's off the game or something incorporated to the gameplay itself, such as asking advice from another character.


The first video game about Hint system was released in 1984.

Eidos Interactive, Endless Loop Studios and JoWood Productions has published most of these games

* Companion - a companion may give suggestions automatically after some time passes being stuck.
In case the system isn't incorporated into the gameplay itself, the hints are often literal solutions to problems rather than simple suggestions where to look for the answer or part of it.
