Brand new to this game so I apologize to everyone up front for asking what is probably a dumb question.
My initial question is simply - how do I know where I am exactly in the game so I can ask for advice on this forum? Somehow - I think that if I post that I am "20 minutes into the game" that won't be helpful. :-)
What brought me here was trying to figure out hoe to get past what seems like a simple location. I really am not far into the game. The city appears to be burning. I was guided to climb a ladder to a roof where I then went left, hopping over a few more roofs and picking up orbs. I find my self at the edge of the roof with the arrow pointing down. No matter how I get off that roof I am then redirected to repeat the sequence. I have been through this sequence probably 20+ times. The poor guy is even out of breath! I've jumped on everything I can see, tried to jump as far as I can from every angle. Once I am down I have to repeat the process.
Anyway - the first question is probably more important in terms of asking for help here in a constructive way. The second issue I will keep trying but if anyone has an idea of where I am and remembers what it took to move on - that would be helpful.
