T7G: Doll room flip puzzle impossible to win in some cases
If one square in the puzzle is on the wrong face compared to all the others, the puzzle is impossible to win. It's an error in the script when the puzzle is randomly generated.
Other descriptions of the bug:
http://www.gamesetwatch.com/2007/09/column_beyond_tetris_the_7th_g.php One puzzle in the game, "Flipping Out" in the doll room, is randomly generated in such a way that the puzzle may be impossible. Prima's Official Strategy Guide seems to know about the problem, but not really understand how it works. It cautions, "It appears to be impossible to solve this puzzle if only 1 square is incorrect." So what do you do with an impossible setup? You reset the puzzle until you get a setup that you hope is good. As Scott Purdy said in a proposed rec.puzzles walkthrough, "The problem is that this puzzle, depending upon the starting position, is either trivial or impossible."
