General tips:As soon as you’ve watched the intro and the talking is over, save your game and explore your surroundings before you start playing in earnest. Draw a simple map made up of squares connected by lines, you are going to need it till you can find your way around blindfolded.Remember that it’s not enough to wave the cursor around, you have to click on EVERYTHING in order to find items.This is one of those games in which it would appear there is more than one solution to the same problem and, more often than not, no solution at all. For instance, if you embark on a particular path, although the alternative possibilities continue present to confuse you, they won’t actually work. There are also plenty of red herrings. Add to all that that you can go about what you need to do in each section in almost any order you like, and you will begin to see how difficult this game really is.I should mention that every time you play things turn out slightlydifferent, so don’t be alarmed if events don’t unfold exactly as I detail them – try something else, and please don’t blame me!As soon as you get the Jester Staff, do not neglect to use it on everyone you meet. And I mean EVERYONE!The Moodometer is very important and I’ll tell you when it is vital to lie or to be nice or normal. You can ordinarily leave it at normal.Save before you attempt anything important, I’ll try to remind you at crucial moments.I am giving you the bare minimum here to help you solve the game. This is only a rough guide. Do examine and try other things. The easiest thing will be to tell you what can be done at each location and let you do it your own way. Read the first section (KYRANDIA) through before you start, then decide how you want to go about it.KYRANDIAThe DumpRummage around the rubbish dump and get a shoe, a straight nail, a broken flask and some whole flasks. You can come back here any time and get some more of those (save the shoe, there is only one). By the way, if you find an orange peel, use it on Malcolm for extra points.The Castle GateYou could be dragged here at some point and taken to Prison, and you’ll return here afterwards. You can carry on from there. When you get the scissors, cut both pennants for extra points. If you don’t get the scissors, a broken flask will do just as well.The PrisonThis sequence only appears to take place if you waste too much time messing around. Follow the instructions precisely. The good thing is that you get to keep the scissors; so towards the end, put them in your inventory and don’t leave them on the floor. However, as I explain above, you don’t really need them.The BluffYou can enter the machine at any time, which takes you to the Town Center. Do so at least once to get the extra points.Out of TownYou are after the mime’s outfit. In order to get it, you have to place an eel in the mime’s hood; hang about till he turns around. If he does not, the time is not yet – so go elsewhere. When you succeed, he will go into the Baths. To follow him you need to have tied the nut-on-a-string to a hooked nail and use that on the coin box.The BathsMake sure the moodometer is at lying before you go in. Once inside, you talk to the guy. Then stand by the big wheel and move the arrow to scalding hot or freezing cold. Everyone will rush off and you will be able to get the outfit you can see in the window.The Town ArenaClick on the frog to move it aside. It is a good source of water, if you need it – you can also get the odd eel simply by clicking at its mouth. Note the footprints at the entrance.City LimitsPick up a couple of logs here.Cow ShedYou need several flasks full of water. You combine the seeds with the water and get a seedling. You put that in the hopper five times in all, so that the arrow is pointing at the red number. Watch what happens. Puncture the milk container with a straight nail to get some cream with a flask. You can also speed up the process by combining the seeds with an eel and adding water; in this case, you only need to fill the hopper twice – but then, you need to go fishing for eels.Town CenterThere are several locations here, and I’ll tackle them one by one.The Toy FactoryOpen the padlock with a straight nail. Once inside, go through the other door to Malcolm’s pad. Here, look in the drawers and get the nut-and-string and the staff under the bed. Don’t be too hasty in combining the nut with a bent nail to get the fishing tackle – read on. Oh, and you can look through the family album, if you like.Go out to the factory and click on the large book. You will see the shadow of a toy. Put a log in the funnel of the machine and press the green button. You get a toy soldier. Now manipulate the two antennae-like appendages on the machine and click on the book again. A different shadow of a toy will appear. If it is that of a ball, put the shoe in the funnel and press the green button. You get a ball. Go through the routine again with the antennae and book; you can get a toy horse by putting a log in the funnel and pressing the green key. You should end up with three toys. The CellarGo down the hole into the cellar. Fill all your flasks with water. (Later on, when you have a disguise, you can stand on the carpet by clicking on one of the apples drawn on it, then clicking on the other – see under Darm’s.)Note the bricked wall. When you are given the right information (on the other hand, why wait?), you can combine sesame seeds with an eel to get fertilized seeds (you can fish for eels in the sewer), put them amongst the bricks, fill a flask with water and use that on the seeds. This busts the bricks and you can go in. If you click on the shell and use an empty flask on it you get a portal potion which you can use in the Arena. This is a great shortcut which takes you to the Isle of the Cats straight away, although you miss out on the fun of the longer solution to this particular problem. Since you can only use the portal potion once, leave the shell alone if you don’t want it; but you get extra points for busting the hole open.From the cellar you can go up the stairs to the Town Hall, more further on.Darm’sYou arrive here on the magic carpet from the cellar and leave the same way. If you were to attempt a visit without a disguise, you’ll be recognized and you’ll leave quite promptly. Once you get the disguise, you can visit Darm and he will ask for a fishcream sandwich. Give it to him and talk both to him and to the dragon. You can use all your items on them to see if they give you any useful info on them. Finally, use the staff on Darm repeatedly till he leaves the room and then speak to the dragon – he will give you a clue pointing to the bricked-up wall in the cellar.Town HallYou have to give the statue a sandwich in order to speak to it. Once you’ve spoken, try your items on it and see if you can get any clues.The Fishcream ParlourWhen you enter the place it’s chock-a-block full of people and Malcolm expresses the desire to make everyone go. To get stampede points, get some seeds, the nut-and-string and go to the dump. Place the seeds on the log on which the squirrel is standing (near you) and use the nut on it to hypnotise it. Now you can pick it up and go to the Parlour. Come to the front and put the squirrel on the floor. Use the nut on the squirrel and watch. When everybody is out and you leave, the parlour will be closed and bolted. If you had trouble getting hold of sandwiches (and you need three), you could always come armed with three (or whatever number) lots of seeds, fish and cream and make the sandwiches when everyone leaves and before you go out.The Magician LodgeYou can only enter here if you are wearing the mime’s outfit. Lie when you talk to Zanthia. You can pull the alarm which will empty the parlour – unfortunately, it is then also locked up.The Strange BoyHe pops up all over, but he is mostly to be found in City Limits. Be nice. You must offer him three toys and get try to get three sandwiches in exchange. He will accept the toys at random, so you’ll have to try different ones on him. Sometimes he will take two the same. I got lucky and had no trouble. At any rate, you must get the sandwiches somehow. If he will not trade for all three, then you have to get the Fishcream Parlour sorted.The CrossroadsUse the scissors or broken glass to get a flower.The GraveyardGet another flower. Change to nice. Use the flowers on the grave to speak to the ghost.Pegasus LandingBe nice. Talk to Zanthia and she will give you a clue.The DockYou can go to the point and use the string and hook contraption to get eels. Later, and dressed up as the mime and carrying a sandwich, you can talk to the dog and he will let you in the ship. Try pricking him with something sharp, like a straight nail, to get extra points.So, there you have it. The main thing here, as you will have gathered from all this, is either to get the portal potion or to get the mime’s outfit and to be left with one sandwich so that you can get on the boat and sail to…THE ISLE OF CATSYou will land in style. There is an altar here. If you were to go left, you would see some statues. Be nice and talk both to the cat and the dog. Don’t attempt to wander into the jungle. Click on the cart to get a lift.The cart will take you to the three locations available, at random; so that if you turn up at the Pirates, talk to them all but get back on the cart.In the Dog Fort you will find a machete, which is vital. Now you can go into the jungle, but it is a very tiresome business, since you have to hack the vegetation and kill any snakes you find before you can proceed anywhere. The jungle wraps around on you, so you might go around in circles forever. Which reminds me, jump into puddles wherever you see them, otherwise you die eaten up by fleas. If you forget and are at death’s point, you can always get rid of the fleas by clicking on the character and discarding them.Right, to save a lot of wear and tear, from the Dog Fort go left, left, left and up, collecting all the bones you find along the way. Make sure you lie when you talk to Fluffy. Now go left, upand up, again, collecting bones. (I found these directions varied when I played the game again – so don’t take me too seriously.)Talk to the dog leaning on some rocks. Now, you can either give him a bone, in which case he’ll go off and bury it at random, or you can place a bone where you want him to dig. Sometimes you get lucky and get a gem. You must get six, so, when you run out of bones, go right, clear the jungle, get more bones and go right again. Don’t forget to take the odd dip in the puddle. If you don’t get any bones, go right and this time try going left, clearing the jungle,and then go up. Good luck to you.Once you have the gems, go to Fluffy and show one to him. He will give you a magic mouse. Go back to Dog Fort (from Fluffy, left, up, up) and enter the ruins through the hole next to the dog. Go right and use the mouse on each of the statues to see what each one represents – make a note of it. Go out, change to nice and get on the cart. You might go to the pirates (if you had not visited them before, talk to them all) or to the altar; but you need to go to the altar.Use each gem on the altar to find out what they represent and make a note of it. Go left and use the mouse on one of the balls. Now all you have to do is to match the gems with the statues.At the end you will get a crystal mouse. You will have to find your own way to the pirates, since the cats are no longer pulling carts. The directions in my case (it could be different in yours) were, from the altar, right, left, left, up, right, left, righ, right.Once you reach them, talk to the captain. When asked to perform magic, use the mouse on the one-legged pirate. You are invited on board and end up in Kyrandia, and from there you get sent to…THE ENDS OF THE EARTHThis is a killer. Arm yourselves with patience and save your game. You start with three coins. Buy insurance, the fins and the cleats (press on the next button for that). Wear the cleats and you get a shoehorn. Put it in the inventory. Press next the button for the brolly and use the shoehorn on the machine. Remove the cleats by clicking with the shoehorn on Malcolm. Click twice on the first barrel to go down in it. Climb up using the cleats (click up to the left of the screen). Swing across with the brolly (click with it on the hook). Move to the extreme left and use the brolly. Go into the cave. Again, move to the left and use the brolly. Go into the cave. Remove the brolly by using the cover on Malcolm. Put the fins on (click them on Malcolm) and use the bungee string to get across (click it on the nearest hoop). From this ledge you can climb up with the cleats or swim up, then climb again, swing across with the brolly and swim up. Go into the cave. You might have reached your destination (it varies), but if you haven’t, as you come out you can do any old thing; you need to die and end up at the top again. This bit, as I said, might not be necessary – but just in case it is, at the top, but the toy float and the brolly. Take the second barrel. Wear the toy and inflate the flower fully. Still wearing the toy, click on the flower to jump across. Enter the cave. You will see that the pictures have changed. Out, jump with the toy. Swing across with the brolly and jump down again to the next cave. Whichever cave is the one that changes, you will find yourself in…LIMBOAt the Fish Court, you find out you are a slave to the queen by virtue of a collar you wear around your neck. You will be forced to play Tic Tac Toe, now and at other inconvenient moments. Change to lying and lose the game, which is tougher than winning it. Then click on the queen and lie to her till she gives you leave to go. (This you will have to do several times, so I won’t repeat these instructions). On this occasion, you will finish up outside. Change to nice, go back in and talk to the merman in the background.Out, pick up the key, exit top left, use the staff on the fish to the left and when the perch turns to the side, swipe his apple. You will probably be interrupted here, but I’ll ignore the interruptions (you know what to do) and press on. From the university, go left and watch. Talk to the fish by the gate (nice). Pick up the fondue set. Get in the water course and pull the lever. You should finish up in the dump. You can pick up two objects each time you land here before the old bat tells you to get down. Talk to him.Lie and say you are the tax collector and you’ll get two coins. Although you’ll find it convenient to keep one of each of the objects you find, give anything extra to the bat: a worm will gain you a coin (feel free to sell it), three objects the same, another coin. The object of the exercise is to get at least six coins as soon as possible. Talk to the bat in all three moods to get some useful information. Go on as many rides in the chute as necessary to collect sufficient coins.As soon as you have the money, go to the cannon and give five coins to the fish. You will be shot to hell, literally. Change to nice and speak to the guy on the line. Speak to the woman (normal or lying) at the table and you will be told how to hold a Royal Seance. Now you’ll be pulled back to play tic-tac-toe. As soon as you are free, take another ride on the chute and you should get a newspaper from the dump. So long as you have a coin and a newspaper, that’s all you need. Use both on Malcolm.Change to normal and go to the queen. Speak to her and you will be challenged to another game. As soon as there are seven “pieces” on the board, drop the newspaper and use the coin on it. The ghost comes and you are free. Leave and go to the cannon again. Still at “normal”, speak to the fish and he will let you go for another coin. In hell, change to nice and speak to the guy to get ahead of him in the queue. Watch what happens. You should get through to the underworld. Talk to people as they come, but soon you will be sent to the Boondocks. Use the machine and you will find yourself…BACK IN KYRANDIAAt this point you are requested to choose between your better half and your worst half. It’s up to you, but I chose the good guy. I don’t know if it makes any difference.The first thing you must do is go to the Castle, where you’ll get nabbed and asked to produce the six jewels of the Isle of Cats. Talk to everyone there.Visit the dump, if you like, and see if you can pick up anything useful – you will certainly need a nail, a log, a whole flask and, later, a broken one.Again, you can do a variety of things. Go to the old Baths and you will see that it is now a Pawn Broker. He will sell you seeds for the items he asks – if you don’t have that particular item, leave and enter once more, and try again. The easiest one is flasks, since you can pick up an endless supply from the dump.Go to Malcolm’s pad and find the portrait under the bed. (This next bit is not necessary at the moment, or maybe never. It certainly didn’t get me anywhere, but it’s up to you.) Go to the cellar and travel to Darm’s. If you speak to the guys, the dragon asks for a squirrel. I tried that and it didn’t work for some reason. I think the only reason they are there is to supply you the Portal Potion and, once you have found it, there is no need to come back.Go up the stairs and have a look around and talk to the statue. You can try using the items you are carrying on it, to find out whether they are any use. Go back to the cellar. You can leave by clicking on the pipe hole to the right of the door.At the factory, use the log to make a toy horse. Leave the factory and peek through the window of the Magician’s Lodge. Use a nail on the door and go in. Use a nail on the lock to free the three “mice”. Go back to the cellar and up the stairs and you’ll find the magician at work. Talk to her and then put the horse in the cauldron she is stirring. Wait till it goes brown and use an empty flask on it. Leave through the door and then through the pipe.Find your way to the Pegasus Landing and use the potion. You finish up in the inlet in which you met the pirates. Pick up the machete and go left, left, left, right (Old Dog Fort), left, left, left, up (Fluffy), collecting bones as you go. You’ll need ten so give him what you have and, if you don’t have enough, go left, left and up. He will give you a cheese-making machine. Go right and you’ll be at the altar. Go left, use the cheese-making machine on Malcolm and pick up the cheese. Use it on the mouse statue and pick up all the gems. Go back to Fluffy and he will give you a can. Use it on yourself for an experience in a lifetime.Now you’ve hit town again, you ought to know the items you were carrying are to be found at the landing. No matter, right now go to the dump where you’ll find your two most precious items – the portrait and the collar. Pick them up or, if you have no room, just the collar. Go into the castle and talk to pegleg. Give him a jewel and JC will come down. Hand JC the collar and watch. Well,that got rid of them. Go to the dump to pick up a broken flask and whatever else is left there.Back at the castle you will see the two mice at the gate. Make some cheese and give it to Brandon. Watch. Cut two flowers with the broken glass. Go to the grave and summon the ghost. Go to the Fishcream Parlour and make some cheese to give to the Fishjerk. Talk to him. Leave and visit the Pawn Broker with your jewels and buy some goods for fun. Try buying the dagger and picking it up and see what happens. Save beforehand, just in case.Go back to the Parlour. In your absence, the Fishjerk will have mended the machine. He will ask for the ingredients needed to get the whole thing going (seeds, cream and eels). You know how to get them, so go ahead. Once you’ve put them in the funnel, you get a sandwich. Go out.Visit the pirate ship at the dock and click around for some fun. Go back to the Parlour and ask the Fishjerk to get everyone to the Town Hall. No dice.Now go to the Old Town Hall and to the statue. Click on it till it asks you about the ingredients for the seance. Pick up the crumpled portrait and click it on the magic cabinet to the left. You get to see a brief preview. Click again on the statue and it will ask you for the ingredients to get the Kyrandians together. Give him the sandwich. He will congratulate you and decide to go over to the Parlour. Make with the portrait and the cabinet again and simply sit back and watch.You will see a rather contrived ending and some very original credits. I don’t know about you, but I am exhausted and I am going to bed. Good NIGHT! THE END
