There are cheats which require you to face north. Otherwise the only purpose is that you may get a slight idea of where you are heading. (e.g. in a maze you can always check where you are going)

Can I solve a maze by using the compass? How? Have I to go always to the north?

The compass isn't all that helpful, that's true. I never used it except for the times I tried out some of the cheats.

ok, so the compass is only for cheats, but how? I say, doing the cheats you only have to walk, jump or similar in a specific order. When I have to use it? Sorry, but I don't understand.

You have to face directly North for them to work. You now that you're facing the right direction, when the compass needle turns transparent.

As far as I remember these cheats where you need the compass are for Last Revelation and Chronicles only. But it might help if you get lost in the tombs sometimes.
