Added DiffLines:

* SolveTheSoupCans: After breaking the shield around a memento, you have to, for some unexplained reason, solve a flip-the-squares puzzle (similar to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lights_Out_(game) "Lights Out"]]) to activate it. It's probably supposed to be a HackingMinigame of some sort, but it feels disconnected from the story and environment, compared to the exploration-based tasks you have to do to break the shield.

* YouShouldntKnowThisAlready: At one point, you are asked what David's main morph was in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', and you can speak to a character nearby to get the right answer. This is simple enough, but it becomes a problem if the player is familiar with the books and knows the answer because the game gets it wrong. The expected answer is a cobra, but David's actual main battle morph is a lion. ''Marco'' is the only one who ever morphed into a cobra. This was likely changed to keep people from solving the puzzle too early.
