It's a interesting game. Even with the in-game walkthrough it was to hard. I couldn't find most of the things needed to make the machine work.

Liek said...

it is kinda nice, but needed the walkthrough to give it a start.. Walkthrough looks nice too btw :)

I didn't understand the walkthrough that was with it. I just wasted an hour trying to figure it out. I do much better with written walkthroughs. The photo/video ones aren't much help to me.

Megan said...

I have done everything in the walkthrough, but I'm stuck with one extra orb and I'm still missing a dream ball. Anonymous first-completer, do you have any hints?

You got alot further than I did using the walkthrough. I was missing half of the "dream balls" and I couldn't get the star map either. Is anyone willing to make a typed walkthrough for the game? It would help greatly.

Oops... Sorry about the double post. I hit the "publish your comment" button twice.

Megan said...

I thought the walkthrough was pretty straight forward... you have to hold your cursor over the various items and it pretty much tells you what to do with each thing.
I'm stuck with an extra orb and I can't see that there are any other transporters to put it on and I'm still missing one dream ball. As far as I can tell, there are no other walkthroughs out there.

The game probably still has a few bugs in it. That's most likley why you have extra items. Were you able to finish the game with the extras? I'll give it another try again soon.

Megan said...

nope, still haven't finished because I'm missing one dream ball...

I just noticed that this game has only been on here for an hour ahd there are alrady 11 comments on it. That's pretty cool.

Anonymous said...

Hmmm.... That's odd. I've been looking on other sites to see if there's another walkthough and there arn't any yet. I had the extra transporter thing as well. I was missing two or three of the dream balls. So, I wasn't able to finish the game either. hopefully they'll get the bug fixed soon so we can finish the game.

Rebus said...

Finished. It's good game with cool graphic and very easy puzzles.

Wind Lane said...

Not bad, and I can see why there's an extra yellow thing. If there wasn't, it would be possible to get stuck with no way to advance since you can do things in any order you wish.

Fitz said...

Excellent game. Made sese to me just needed help with the music because I am completely tone deaf!

Rebus said...

Some hints:
The Dreamballs belongs to the gray platform.
Gray platforms used to transport between the planets.
In the workbook is written by one of the 3 coordinates of the "constellation".

Someone needs help with a specific puzzle?

Megan said...

can anyone tell me how to find the last dream ball? I have the top two (orange alien with one eye & sky with clouds) and the bottom three (music notes, pink liquid and rainbow prism). I have one extra orb and I've been to every planet/asteroid I can find - any help?

Anonymous said...

Can't find the last platform to use my orb. Nothing on the walkthrough about it either.. Anybody?

Rebus said...

It's someone wrote.
Last dreamball no use.

Anonymous said...

Someone said they finished the game without the last dreamball? Then I'm finished and it's a really bad ending where my character just stands there while the games still running.

Anybody know how to get the last dreamball?

lac515 said...

can someone please tell me the music code as i have no sounds to hear, thanks

Anonymous said...

@lac515 the notes are E D C E F, or numbered from left to right 3,4,5,3,2

Last dreamball anyone?

Rebus said...

Sorry, my mistake.
I mistook dreamball and Glowing orbs.
You need every six dreamballs.

Anonymous said...

What a lovely little game. Thanks Bart.

When I finished the game I had one extra Orb. Did any one find what to do with it?

I hate walkthroughs - I always wish somebody had written clues. So here are some clues for you:

Home:
-What does the giant wish for?
-What does the wale need, and what is this strange contraption next to him?
You will find what you need on the other planets, so away you go.

Colors: There is a clue on the second page of the diary. What color is formed in the center?
Note the color of the rays of light.

Elements: Well this is straight forward - there are four elements. Collect them in various locations.
Earth: Where did you see earth? Now find something to pick it up with.
Air: Something is puffing air when you activate it. Now what do you have to catch some air in?
Water: Did you find a bucket? You probably wouldn't recognize it before it is filled with water. There is somebody in this world in desperate need of water. Once you give him his water, you will find yours.
Fire: Did you see something burning on one of the planets? Now you need something to catch fire with.

Asteroid: This one was the hardest for me. But aren't the orange thingies just adorable?
- The telescope and the screen work together. One gives you a clue how to activate the other. Find the important x,y coordinates. Where are the stars?
- Look closely at the comet - why is it so bright?

Music:
- Did you find something that plays music? listen to it carefully and repeat the tune.
- Don't forget to write down the numbers. Where did you see something similar?
- And don't forget to take the baloon

Life: my favorite planet - there are clues here to many of the puzzles.
-When you come here you pass very close to another planet. The inhabitants of one planet can influence the other.
-Did you see that purple fluffy plant somewhere before? I'll bet it will make someone happy.
-Those blue rubbery things are tubes - you can use them to pump water.
- There is plenty of dirt here, if only you had something to pick it up with.


Back home:
-Did you cheer up the giant?
-Did you cheer up the whale?
-If you found the balls on all the other planets you are ready for the last dream ball.
See the strange contraption in-front of the giant?
The giant is happy, he spits out purple bubbles - make the bubbles go through the contraption and collect them at the bottom.

I liked the game. At the beginning, I was just trying to do it myself, and I was totally stuck and clueless, but when I started using the walkthrough, I understood and finished it quickly. I really like the walkthrough actually, and I thought it was very useful.

Anonymous said...

One more clue:

To get the dream ball from the life planet you need to make the red plant bloom.
You will not be able to collect the ball directly. Pull some strings.

Megan said...

OMG THANK YOU ANONYMOUS PERSON!!! I FINALLY got the last dream ball out of the flower! YAY!

Thank you for that last clue about the flower blooming. That was the last dream ball, one that I think most people were looking for. Other than that, the game was pretty logical and very fun to play. Nice job, designer.

Peter said...

Nice one!

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much for the complete walkthrough!

Anonymous said...

Yay!!! I finished it! I still had one extra transporter orb at the end though... That was kind of odd. Thanks again for the walkthrough!

sandra said...

i found this game quite easy actually.
i finished it without the walkthrough!^^

Anonymous said...

I burnt the dinner playing this game, and loved every clue, contraption and step of the way!

matt w said...

There's an extra glowing orb so you can visit the planets in any order -- don't worry about the extra glowing orb. (I was confused about it for a while too, because like Megan I didn't know how to get the life orb.)

Difficult but fun :)

Me/You said...

Did it this morning at work... That was just AWESOME! Hard, but without walkthrough...

Anonymous said...

Help! I'm stuck...
I already have five dream balls (the skyball; the pink liquid ball; the cyclops; the music ball and the colour ball). But how can i find the last one?!
I think i'm going crazy

Rebus said...

Hi Anonymous (30 July 2010 22:09)

I think you need dreamball from planet LIFE.

But the game was really great and tough!
