I was playing the game on a laptop, and I gave up on it after 10 minutes. Right at the beginning of the game you will have to pry open a door. This is done by frantically mashing/clicking the mousepad for a while. Shortly after this scene, you will have to close a door while being followed by monsters. Again this is done by the same repetitive clicking on the mouse pad, followed by a fast switch to the inventory to get something to lock the door. This was where I realized that I had wasted enough time on this game.
The first 3 Deponia games had great puzzles and a really good story. Too bad that they decided to follow up with senseless button-pushing.
It might be that real puzzels appear later, but I will never know. The intro was simply too annoying. Even though I made it through the two button-pushing-events, the chance for encountering more such events, made me decide to uninstall and delete the game.
