In the well-known AGS game "Apprentice", there is a timed puzzle that requires to hide and then quickly climb a staircase while a character looks the other way.
See this video walkthrough:

When played using scummvm, Pip's walking speed is much slower and he never manages to get upstars before the wizard goes back to his room.
Steps to reproduce

  1. Use master's door
  2. Immediately walk to the "dark corner"
  3. As soon as he finishes his line <<where are you Pib?>> click on the stairs ("walk to upstairs")
  4. The game should now move to the upstairs room; instead, the magician says something like "i hate it when he does that" and goes back to his room closing the door.

This occurs identically in the standard and the deluxe version.

Game is freeware and can be downloaded from the official website
