I got 3 or 4 gems on this before it was here...got stuck with block with the marbles...didn't know what you're supposed to do.

Put the marbles on the holes. Dots while appear next to the marbles according to the drawing on them.

For each set, you have to fill each holes on the set using both the marbles and the dots.

I'm blocked a little further. I don't know where to put the flower I can make grow with the flying thingy.

OK, I've put the flower to grow on the boulder, but now what?

***SPOILER*** (after you've found all five stones: arranage them on the see-saw so they are balanced. This "stops" the wind. Now you can control the pollen. Use the flying pollen on the right flower to get the broken part of the stick and to fix the broken stick on the wind pipes. Then grow a new pollen and "pollinate" the flower on the left and "plant" the seed to the left of the boulder. This moves the boulder and plugs the hole. Then use the tune of the windpipes to figure out what order to click on the mushrooms. This sets the rock pieces on the right flying. Click to move them and make a keyhole. And done.

Thanks 23:21...What are the "obectives" to the pentagram stone? The mushrooms? The stick? The curved blocks? It's all so vague.

Jack: for the pentogram, click on all the bees flying above it and they will direct you. As for the mushrooms, see above (you need to do more before you start at the mushrooms...)

I've gotten to where I can move the stones, but I don't know what positions to put them in. Someone said a keyhole but..?

TheWhiteLady said...

I can't get a fifth stone :S
I'm having a hard time figuring this last one out

Anonymous said...

Same here...red, green, blue & black.
The goal now is to be able to read the game author's troubled mind to get the last stone.

You can grow more seeds by clicking each flower. You can't guide seeds when the wind is blowing.

@Anonymous 04:44
where did you get the black stone?
I have red, green, blue and yellow

TheWhiteLady said...

nvm. i found the black. i just never clicked the centre circle

you can find the one your missing by doing the pentagram i believe.
I could be mixing it up though.

Nice art, good concept, enough story to add a mood. There are too many random leaps of non-logic for this to be a great game. The puzzle with the dotted stones (make sure each circle is filled with a stone or a dot) is very clever. The flying bees with the rune pattern is good. Also, attempting to direct the seed is very awkward, and even a correct guess fails to reward, leading to needless frustration. (Example, I figured out the seed should roll the rock downhill, but after 3 failed attempts decided I was wrong.)

I do hope to see a sequel, but I hope the controls are improved and the answers to all the puzzles make at least a little sense - or have clues leading us to the silly answer. I don't mind that a seed COULD pull a stick out of the ground and transport it; I mind that I was expected to figure it out by trial and error.

Yes. Even given a step-by-step WT, some tasks were just irksome at best.
I would give this games creator another shot though.
