Arijigora


Arijigora

JayArijigora is a point-and-click puzzle game from Japan starring stick figures against a diabolical biological creature. Click on the right items, and with the right timing, to save the stickman race from the threat to its existence.

If you're familiar with the Hapland series, then you'll feel right at home with this new game from author Hozo, who even gives a nod to Rob Allen's original as the inspiration behind this one.

If you're unfamiliar with this type of puzzle, then you should know that it is possible to reach a dead end, a condition where it is impossible to win. A reset button is usually provided to reset the puzzle back to the beginning. But Hozo has taken that concept to the next level by providing additional reset buttons at certain checkpoints, thereby eliminating the hassle of having to start again all the way from the beginning as you progress through the game. A welcome addition to a highly enjoyable puzzle game concept.

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

This is a complete walkthrough from beginning to end! First I've ever posted too! I did this game without any hints.. so I feel pretty good! Hope you don't need this... but here it is if you do...

First:

You click the dog so it can get out of your way. If you don't, you can't get down the slide. Once he's gone, click the man on the slide to get down.

Second:

Once you're down,click on the rope that leads down to that nasty looking bug. That'll make your man go down and grab it. Don't know what good it is.. but just go and do it. ^^ (For your own safety... don't click on the man or the bug while he's standing near the edge.. that'll make him want to look at the bug. The bug gets mean, and chucks a rock at him, rendering him dead. Heh...)

Third:

Now click on the bug, and that'll make the dog growl at it, turning it the other direction. Now that it's facing left, click on the dog, that will scare the man to climb on the rope again. Once he's back on ground, use the dog to scare him one more time up the slide. Congrats! You've got your first save point!

Fourth:

Next.. you wanna collect some rocks... So, to start off, click on the slide itself twice, and it'll break. Now, click on the teeter-totter to make the left side face down. Click on the yellow rope you found, and the bug will want to throw a rock at it. With careful timing, click the slide as the bug launches a rock over it. If you do it just right, it'll bounce off the slide, and onto the teeter-totter. That's one. but you need two. So just do it again.

Fouth:

To quickly get your next save point, (Which I recommend doing now, as the next part will most likely take several tries) Simply click the teeter-totter once to make it turn over, and then click on the man to make him jump! That'll launch the rocks over, oddly knocking a man out of the tree, but killing him in the process. We need him alive.. so use that new Save Point to start at the recent location.

Fifth:

You may Also have noticed that the rocks scared away the bird. You'll need him. So first thing you do is click the bird. He'll land on the swings. Next, click once on the spring horse, and it'll break. Now, click on the tree. A soccer ball will drop. Immediately after clicking the tree, click on the blue porta-potty, and the door will swing open. If you do it right, the ball will bounce up onto the bench, roll and hit the horse.. and rest at the edge of the bench. Now you have a nice pillow for your man to fall on when you launch those rocks!

Sixth:

This next part takes timing too. Click on the man to jump him down onto the teeter-totter. That'll launch the rocks. (Be sure you already moved your bird to the swing, otherwise you'll lose him and have to start over). As soon as the man falls, click the porta-potty again. This'll open the door, and the unfortunate man sitting inside will get a soccer ball to the crotch! Ow! To protest, he tosses out a bomb. The fuse is a fake though, so don't worry about being quick. Though, clicking it now will blow it up, killing the sleeping man on the bench. Not a good idea. (The timing in launching the ball into the porta-potty will take just a little practice. Just time it right, take your time, and you'll be fine.)

Seventh:

So now you've got a bomb. Worthy weapon to destroy this bad bug! Now you've just got to use it! More timing involved, but it's not too hard. Click (And hold down the click for more power) to make the swing flip the birdie to face the other direction. Next, click the man in the pit. That will get the bugs attention, and will toss a rock at him. Things need to start moving now, as the man doesn't have much time left now. As soon as the rock hits the jungle-gym, count two seconds, and click the bird on the swing. As you do, he'll fly over the man, leaving a nasty present on his face as it does. When the bird rests on the tree, click it again. That will bring it back to the swing. When the man gets up, and sees the bird, he'll throw the bomb at it to extract his revenge! If you did it exactly like I told you, the bug will open his mouth to eat then man, but quickly receive a bomb instead! It will blow up, destroying the bug! Yaaay! You'll hear a nifty song, and win the game! Hope you enjoyed it! I know I did! (If the timing is off on throwing the bomb, it will not long in it's mouth. It must be open for it to work. The directions should result in the man throwing the bomb at the perfect time, every time.. but who knows.. just experiment if it doesn't work. You'll get it.)

Well I'm not too far in at the moment, but I think it adds a new reset button to the bottom after doing certain things, so you don't always have to start over at the very beginning.
Some things I've discovered:

Click on the bug to make the dog face left.

There is a soccer ball in the tree.

I think you have to open the door of the bathroom (far left building) while the ball is still falling to kick it and do... something. If the ball stops, I think it's a dead end.

Retrieve the rope and pulley (and have the dog to its left position?) for the second reset button.

I keep hitting dead ends, I did find you can

make the ball stop at different positions depending on if the horse is broken, but not sure what to do with that

For the first additional reset button...

Get the rope and pulley like TheEternalFire said, then chase the man back up onto the slide with the dog.

Then for the second...

Click on the slide a few times to make the metal slide part fall off. Make sure the left side of the teeter-totter is down, then click on the rope and pulley. The antelion will get angry and throw a rock -- click the slide that fell off at the right time to deflect the rock onto the teeter-totter. Do this twice so you have two rocks on the teeter-totter. Then, click on the tree... twice, I think? Just enough so one more click will make the soccer ball fall out of the tree.

I haven't gotten the third yet (if there is one), but here's what I have so far...

Click on the rocking horse a few times until it breaks. Then click on the tree to make the soccer ball fall, then right after that, click on the door of the outhouse or whatever it is to hit the ball onto the bench. After that, click on the guy on top of the broken slide while the left side of the teeter-totter is up, and he should jump down, catapulting the rocks at the tree on the other side. This scares the bird away if it's still in the tree -- you might need to first click on the bird to get it to land on the swingset for another part of the puzzle, but I haven't found a use for the bird yet. A man also falls out of the tree randomly. If you didn't follow the steps above, he'll crack his head open on the bench. Instead, he'll fall on the soccer ball and end up laying down on the bench, still sleeping. And that's where I'm at!

the bird

wakes the sleeping man up. use the swing to turn it around

the port-o-potty isn't just used once:

If you quickly click the port-o-potty again when the rocks fly, the soccer ball will go inside and someone will spit out a bomb.

Richard...How do you use the swing? I have noticed that the bird poops as it goes from swing to pole.

the guy that was sleeping will pick the soccer ball up if it is next to the bench. he will then throw it at the bird if the bird is on the swing. it will land next to the creature, and after a short bit it the creatue will hit it over to the other side, where it bounces off the screen

richard, could you be more specific?

the bird

hold the button down, to make the swing go all the way up. And then to make the guy throw the ball, click the bird again. I dont know what to do then though

The bird

You can make the guy throw both the soccer ball and the bomb... but so far I can only make the bomb explode off screen when the bug thing throws it out... anyone know how to stop it?

re: hathia

That's where I am too. I tried making the bug throw rocks, to make him hold the bomb longer, but that didn't work.

Got it!

make the guy in the middle slide down, and have the other guy throw the bomb, the timing has to be perfect, but the bug eats the bomb and dies

Walkthrough (solution):

checkpoint 1:

  1. click on the dog, then the stick man on the right.

  2. then click on the wire.

  3. while the man is on the wire, click on the creature, making the dog turn around.

  4. then click on the dog.

  5. after the man gets back, click on the dog again.

checkpoint 2:

  1. click on the seesaw so the left side is down.

  2. click on the slide until it falls down.

  3. click on the pulley.

  4. when the creature throws a rock, click the slide so it bounces the rock on to the seesaw.

  5. get two rocks on the seesaw.

  6. click on the seesaw again so the right side is down.

  7. click the tree twice.

finish:

  1. click on the horse until it breaks.

  2. click on the tree until a soccer ball falls out.

  3. while the ball is bouncing, click on the porta-potty.

  4. click on the bird so it goes to the swing.

  5. click and hold on the swing so it turns the bird around.

  6. click on the stick man on the right.

  7. while the rocks are in the air, click on the porta-potty. a guy will fall out of the tree and hit the soccer ball into the porta-potty. a guy will throw out a bomb.

  8. click on the guy hanging in the pit.

  9. then click on the bird, then click on it again when it lands in the tree. the man will throw the bomb at the bird, into the creatures open mouth. Victory!

can anyone help

how do you get the bomb

Holy crap! I did it!

Try doing something with the guy hanging on...

How do you retrieve the rope and pulley?

Timing for the bomb...

after you have the bomb waiting by the bench, click the guy on the hill and he will start to slide down. If you click the bird to wake up the other guy right around when the bug opens it's jaws and then click the bird again as soon as it lands back on the tree, the bomb will land nicely in the bugs mouth.

Thanks for the help johnnyb

Click in the following order:

1. dog
2. man
3. rope
4. monster
5. dog
6. dog

After that...

11. Click on the bird. When it stops on the swing click and hold the swing so that the bird turns.
12. Then click on the rocking horse twice to break it.
13. Click the tree three times. A ball will fall. Open the toilet door as the ball is falling so that it stops on the end of the bench.
14. Then click the man on the slide - he will jump on the seesaw to launch the stones. Click the toilet door as the stones arrive. If you did it right you'll hear "Yee Haa!" and the ball will come back as a bomb.

And finally...

15. Click on the man hanging from the climbing frame. When he is a little under half way towards the monster, click the bird twice. Saved!

This is a complete walkthrough from beginning to end! First I've ever posted too! I did this game without any hints.. so I feel pretty good! Hope you don't need this... but here it is if you do...

^o^

I love the last scene...When you click on the door

Shut the door!

I always kind of disliked hapland series, while interesting at first they soon start to be unlogical and pure try&error.

This one is a bit better than hapland, since you have the different restart points. However also... Hmm okay, there is an evil bug there... so I'm gonna destory it with... hmmm a bomb! Now where to I get a bomb? Ah yes of course I throw a football into the toilet, then somebody will throw out a bomb?????????????

this is the first one of these that i didnt use a walkthrough to do...

W00T!!!!

I noticed that some of the things you do are hinted to hapland...

Bouncing the rock off of the slide (Hapland 1)
Birds (Hapland 2)
Using a door to push things (Hapland 1?)

Just noting a few things

finished the game thanks to the help here.

I noticed that when the

bomb is thrown at the bird, the bird poops on the area that the guy by the climbing frame slides down. I'm wondering if it is supposed to be intended that the guy gets pooped on, as it is meant to be a sign of good luck - the guy doesn't get eaten if the timing is right.

Not sure if it was intended but it was just something I noticed.

I still can't figure it out. There's even a walkthrough! Can someone say what to do more clearly?

Never mind! What is the thing at the end suppose to mean?

Not strictly on topic, but if you browse that site, the game "micropul" is a great online solitaire game. Its also a two player board game thats available for free on boardgamegeek, but I like the solitaire better.

@Reese: It looks like some sort of japanese kanji,but i cant translate it

Maybe they should have an animation of an crazy/army/terrorist person popping his head out the port-a-potty, look angry, and close the door. So then when the ball hits him on the head, he'll fall back into the port-a-potty, look even angrier, and toss out a bomb, and then run away and laughing evilly.

I like this better than Hapland, because it's easier, but Hapland has better graphics, and has more dead ends and such. It gives you more ending to discover, while this one seems a bit bland.

Also, I find it odd that the bug didn't just climb out and eat everyone. I mean, if I were evil killer bug trying to take over a playground full of extra-tall stick figure kids, that's what I would do.

The thing at the end:

I think it may be this character (完...if that shows for ya). Looks like it translates to The End. How anticlimactic, though I don't know what I expected :P

Quite nice. A bit easier than Hapland, I thought, though that might just be because I've had so much Hapland training.

I wanted to mention that the bug is a giant ant-lion. The nightmare scenario of this game is reality for many ants. Ant-lions dig out big pits and sit buried at the bottom. When ants come by, the ant-lion tosses bits of sand at the ants to knock them in. Horrific! I'm too lazy to use google, but I'd guess that arijigora is Japanese for "ant-lion".

"diabolical biological"?
Say it three times fast.
I dare you.

Im wondering what kind of bug that is.....ugh looks NASTY!

@MailOrderYaks: Neat. But did you try clicking on the blue rectangle?

Ant-loins are awesome...

After reading that post I've started throwing rocks at people near cliffs... somewhat simmilar but different...

If you have trouble getting the soccer ball to go in the porta-potty, just open the door when the rock hits the tree. Also, once he's thrown out the bomb, click the dude in the pit. Two seconds after the bomb hits the jungle-gym, click the bird. When the bird lands on the tree, click it again! The dude will throw the bomb at the bird, missing the bird but hitting the Ant-Lion's open mouth. Also, may I add that the explosion with the bomb is the only thing in the whole game that is remotely related to good graphics

when you finish the game, if you click the blue square with the silver frame, it turns out to be the porta-potty door, and you will see a little man sitting on the toilet. I have to wonder where he got the bomb from? The was no bomb dispenser in that bathroom...

It's an antlion! they sit in pits and ants fall in and can't climb out.
