Wandering Willows

JohnBOk, so it isn't the weekend, but the latest game from PlayFirst, Wandering Willows, just can't wait that long! Combining some of the best parts of Best of Casual Gameplay 2009Animal Crossing and Virtual Villagers with a sprinkling role playing know-how, this game is something so incredibly alluring you'll burn through a few hours of game time before you realize what hit you. It's a pet-raising recipe-collecting item-bartering friend-gaining character-customizing leveling-up collect-a-thon!

A hot air balloon is gently hovering in the sky when a seagull suddenly pierces its canvas, sending you gently crashing to the ground. You land in Wandering Willows, an island inhabited with strange (but cute) animals and a handful of fellow strandees. Your goal is to repair your balloon so you can get back in the air, but in order to accomplish that, you'll need a hand. The locals are more than willing to help, only you'll need to do a few things for them first...

Wandering WillowsAnd so your epic quest of running errands begins! Wandering Willows is all about mini-quests that lead in to solving the bigger puzzle of repairing your balloon. To get the wicker you'll need to repair the balloon's basket, for example, you'll need to find some sticks to bring to one of the villagers. In order to get the sticks, however, you'll need to dig them up. You might also have to bring the villager an additional item he needs to make the basket, sending you on another quest with even more items to find and tasks to complete. And believe me, that's only the beginning!

Your actions are divided into a few easy categories: making objects (cooking food, planting seeds, creating clothing from patterns, crafting flower bouquets, etc.) and working with goods in your inventory and in stores. Your pet companion has several actions as well, including climbing, which allows you to nab things from trees, charming other animals, and digging to uncover items. These abilities level up with use, and you'll need to keep your pet strong to be able to reach the highest items and dig in the toughest parts of the ground.

If you're worried about keeping all of this sorted out in your head, don't worry, Wandering Willows provides you with a great tutorial to ease you into the game. A handy toolbar gives you easy access to all of your current quests, inventory items and food recipes are also easily accessible, and the mini-map lets you see who needs to talk to you and where you need to go to complete your mini-quest. The layout is perfectly conducive to a casual experience, no steep learning curve required.

Wandering WillowsAnalysis: This is one tough game to tear yourself away from! Wandering Willows has a great over-reaching main goal that keeps you driven towards a larger end, and the mini-quests you complete in the interim bestow a superb casual flavor to the game. Pick up and play, or sit and stay all afternoon. I did both with the game, and I'm still hooked. Within the first half hour you'll have mastered the basics, and from that point everything is an extrapolation of the core mechanics. The game actually has a lovely progression from simple errand running to a larger-scale role playing-esque experience.

Visually, as you can tell, Wandering Willows is cute-to-the-core. You can almost feel the happy fun rainbows pouring out of your monitor. The animals are adorable and rather creatively drawn, and the items have an almost whimsical look to them.

Here's the true beauty of Wandering Willows: it's extremely open-ended. At all times you feel as if you can do anything, make anything, and explore anywhere you want. A few areas aren't accessible at the beginning of the game, and you'll need to do certain things in order to unlock additional items, clothing patterns, etc., but other than that, you're not pressured by any clock, scoring system or anything. Kick back, enjoy the scenery, and do some seriously fun item collecting.

Wandering Willows is one of the freshest casual games I've played in some time. This review only touches the surface of the many things you'll uncover and experience throughout the game. It's difficult to categorize because it breaks so many genre conventions. None of that matters, though, because from the moment I started playing it, I knew I was in for a great time.

Wandering Willows Walkthrough including general tips and strategies for getting the most out of this awesome game!

General Tips and Strategies

  • Upgrade your bag to hold more items at the sewing store whenever you can afford it. You can also add more squares to your garden patch at the cooking store, and your speed of growing plants at the garden store. You won't need much more space than a 4x4 grid, so after that consider getting everything else before upgrading the gardens to full size.

  • Keeping a few of each item in your inventory can come in handy so you don't have to go collect each item anew when you get a new task. Keep a lot of thread, eggs/butter/milk, wheat, and sugar (when you get access to sugar) on your person at all times since those items will be used fairly often and in large quantities. Also try to keep as much oil, dye, glass, and iron as you can (as in don't sell em), for the same reasons.

  • Take as many tasks as you can at once, and you'll cut down on how many trips you need to take to collect everything you need.

  • When you're out gathering items, move in a circle in that area, and the trees and dirt piles you collected from will most likely regenerate before you come back to them.

  • Certain special quest items that only are used for that quest do not serve any other purpose, so extras can be discarded (they'll be worth only one willowbee).

  • Just because you unlocked the other island doesn't mean that you won't get any new quests on the first one, so check back often (use the teleport to make things easier) to see if anybody's got a new task for you.

  • Always keep around 5 to 10 batteries on hand since it's pretty easy to run through a lot of them.

  • If they like it, people will put on whatever clothes you give them. This is sometimes hilarious. Be creative. ;)

  • Pay attention to the special abilities of the creatures when selecting your pets. For example, some pets cause increased gem drops in the animals you charm, and some cause more egg drops. For most purposes, you want a pet who functions at medium or better for all skills (besides energy), since you'll be doing pretty much everything. Don't worry about energy too much, just keep a bunch of its favorites on hand to use whenever you need it.

  • Items that people or creatures like (you always want to use their favorites to save time and money) will generally be more effective if you combine them with more things. The more valuable and complicated it is to make something, the larger the effect is. The whole gains more points than the individual parts by themselves, so even just turning fruits into juice gives more points than just two fruits. Things that you find in later areas are way more valuable than things you get early on, so a pineapple will certainly get more done than an apple. Store bought things that haven't been improved have little to no effect at all.

  • Sometimes a new recipe requires a previous recipe you don't have yet - often these basic recipes or patterns can be bought at the store.

  • The majority of the recipes and patterns can only be found by digging or charming animals. On that same topic, the recipes/patterns that are given for filling up a friendship meter can only be gained from that person.

  • Usually when a new area is opened, your new tasks will require items found only in that area. Move on and explore if you can't find what you need.

  • Making collars for your pets can be helpful when you want to quickly increase a creature's skill at a particular task, like digging or climbing. The move speed ones make both you and your pet faster at getting around. Don't worry about running out of collar slots later on with your favorite creature; you can replace old collars with new ones when all the slots are full, but when you do, the old collar is discarded. You get to pick which one goes, though.

  • Bonuses from multiple collars of the same type will stack. That is, you can put three move speed collars on it and it'll let you rush as if you were wearing rocket skates.

  • If you want to plant something, and it's not shown in the current selection, you have to plant more crops in general to "unlock" the one you want. Each island has six different crop types for their patch, and you can't grow a crop from one area in the other.

  • On the whole money making end, gems are usually worth the most, and recipe-created foods too, although they're usually more expensive to make than sell. Try to get a bull-type creature as soon as possible to increase your gains from selling stuff. In addition to that, once you've unlocked the other island, you'll find that items exclusive to one island sell for more on the other island's shops. Supply and demand, and all that jazz.

  • The higher your creature's charm level is, the higher the starting skill levels of any egg you get from using that pet to charm one out of a creature. They did this because they wanted you to be able to use new creatures you get right away without having to train them up to the area you're in.

  • If you're not sure what of anything you're looking at, you can hover over it with the mouse and it'll let you know some quick info.

I ended up buying the game after the demo because it is SO addicting! And I am happy to report that this game doesn't end right after your one hour demo like other games I ended up buying. It's a great relaxing game and I often charm animals and climb trees while I watch tv :) I highly recommend this game, esp if you liked the demo

One of the best simulation games I've played in a long time. Reminded me of Harvest Moon but with a twist. I wish the characters were more dynamic... I wish events would happen, and I wish I had a house to decorate/ develop my own property. I would probably buy it then, but seriously, it is still a great game.

I love it too but I wish I could see all my pets walking around in the pen. Looks like 3 is the max even if you have more nests. I also wish things would happen. It could really be beefed up and be super-fantastic.

I would get this game if it came through Big Fish Games. I am not going to plunk down 10 bucks on another site though.

[Edit: As with other Playfirst exclusives, the game will be available from Big Fish in about a month. -Jay]

In case anybody's worried about the length of the game, there is a whole other island beyond the first one, with a completely different set of ingredients to harvest. There's even a boss creature near the end, sort of.

I downloaded the try out and had to buy it at the end of the hour. I love gathering games and this one comes with cute pets and witty characters. Also the tutorials are very helpful and everything is very easy to understand. Awesome stuff. Hope they keep making more games like this.

Sign me up for the "played it for one hour, then HAD to buy it" fan group.

This really is an amazing game, right up there with Escape from Paradise. And like John said, there is PLENTY to do. I'd say it takes at least 2 days of full playing time (not including nights) to complete it.

One thing I've been wondering though, is if the Biologist badge requires just one pet of each type, so the same animal but with different colours is one type, or if you need one of each species (the animals are of the same type, gorilla for instance, but you need to get one of each colour scheme, i.e. species).

Nevermind, through the magic of Google I found the answer. It turns out that you do need one of each species (i.e. each colour scheme means a different species), and including the one you get at the beginning, there is a total of 41 pets.

This also brings up another reason why I had to buy this game. Even though it can be completed in 2 days, there are still so many things to do for a completist like myself, which adds to the value of the game tenfold.

I just beat the main game. Completing sidequests is what I live for, and now that they're all done with... I have trouble finding the motive to continue playing.

...I don't know about the ending, though. It's so predictable I feel justified not putting it in a spoiler tag... and new friends or not, I wouldn't have minded being the one person to decide to leave Wandering Willows.

Yeah, after I got the full game, I played for about 9 hours and thought, "what a long game!"
Not your usual casual game! Aside from spelling/grammar errors and how I wish the stable window was bigger or a little less... clunkier? More organized? Well, anyway. Aside from that, what an impressive game! I'm not sure how to describe it. Harvest Moon? No. Animal Crossing? Maybe! It kind of feels like an MMO if MMOs were single player and not terrible!

I haven't been this hooked on a game since Totem Tribe -- and the best part is that I'm not battling that fear of doing a ton of work, only to lose the battle and having to do everything over again. A sweetly refreshing game... that I can't pull myself out of! Argh! More coffee, please?

Anyolina: The garden can indeed be made bigger. Buy additional garden plots one at a time in the general store. If you spend enough money, you can eventually fill that entire 4x4 dirt area with fertile soil.

Collecting all animals, recipes and patterns can be pretty painful, as you have to keep playing for a long time after the quests and the fun exploration is over. But I've found a XML inside the folder of the game (strings.xml), containing a list of all these items! Woot! That might help us at least a bit.

Anyway, here's a partial transcription containing only the Pets list, since they're the only ones you need to keep track in order to collect/hatch only the ones you don't have.

Pets:

cat(4):

  • Eesa

  • Rao

  • Rasa

  • Imboko

fatbird(4):

  • Turlie

  • Swirlie

  • Murgie

  • Furgie

horndog(4):

  • Jojo

  • Jimjim

  • Jamjam

  • Chacha

kangalope(4):

  • Oingo

  • Ningo

  • Gruffie

  • Bubbubs

monster(4):

  • Moogor

  • Monthrax

  • Morilla

  • Morgothula

penguin(4):

  • Cooey

  • Tooey

  • Monnie

  • Loopia

rhinohippo(5):

  • Torzil

  • Gibby

  • Scooter

  • Lulu

  • Lingling

robot(4):

  • Beepbop

  • Zeepzop

  • Zoobity

  • MX-9000

yeti(4):

  • Zangar

  • Dijibo

  • Filo

  • Ohweeoh

  • Kababa's pet (class "monster") won't lay eggs, so it's not on the list.

  • Doobear (class "doobear") never showed up in-game, so I guess it was just a testing monster.


Recipes and patterns will pop up only if you still don't have them, so it suffice to know how many there are:

  • 229 food recipes,

  • 35 bouquet/vases recipes,

  • 37 collar recipes,

  • 157 patterns.

I would like to note that there are 4 more pets that aren't in Stefano's note...for lack of what else to call them I'll just use Wolf/fox I guess haha.

They are:

Cowlie
Joopie
Murfee

You're right Chelle8806. I forgot those!
They're called "raccoon" in the aforementioned XML, although I agree Wolf/Fox is a lot more appropriate. :D

I don't usually enjoy the commercial games posted on JIG, but I did love this one, I must say. Clever humor, simple enough game mechanics and although the item combining and quests were obviously repetitions of the same mechanism, they felt very different and diverse for some reason.

The whole experience seemed like a mixture of Amaranth's Grimm's Hatchery (eggs, funny animal collecting), Pokémon (as pointed by JohnB) and the 80's cartoon The Wuzzles (mixed animals!)

Wandering Willows Walkthrough including general tips and strategies for getting the most out of this awesome game!

General Tips and Strategies

  • Upgrade your bag to hold more items at the sewing store whenever you can afford it. You can also add more squares to your garden patch at the cooking store, and your speed of growing plants at the garden store. You won't need much more space than a 4x4 grid, so after that consider getting everything else before upgrading the gardens to full size.

  • Keeping a few of each item in your inventory can come in handy so you don't have to go collect each item anew when you get a new task. Keep a lot of thread, eggs/butter/milk, wheat, and sugar (when you get access to sugar) on your person at all times since those items will be used fairly often and in large quantities. Also try to keep as much oil, dye, glass, and iron as you can (as in don't sell em), for the same reasons.

  • Take as many tasks as you can at once, and you'll cut down on how many trips you need to take to collect everything you need.

  • When you're out gathering items, move in a circle in that area, and the trees and dirt piles you collected from will most likely regenerate before you come back to them.

  • Certain special quest items that only are used for that quest do not serve any other purpose, so extras can be discarded (they'll be worth only one willowbee).

  • Just because you unlocked the other island doesn't mean that you won't get any new quests on the first one, so check back often (use the teleport to make things easier) to see if anybody's got a new task for you.

  • Always keep around 5 to 10 batteries on hand since it's pretty easy to run through a lot of them.

  • If they like it, people will put on whatever clothes you give them. This is sometimes hilarious. Be creative. ;)

  • Pay attention to the special abilities of the creatures when selecting your pets. For example, some pets cause increased gem drops in the animals you charm, and some cause more egg drops. For most purposes, you want a pet who functions at medium or better for all skills (besides energy), since you'll be doing pretty much everything. Don't worry about energy too much, just keep a bunch of its favorites on hand to use whenever you need it.

  • Items that people or creatures like (you always want to use their favorites to save time and money) will generally be more effective if you combine them with more things. The more valuable and complicated it is to make something, the larger the effect is. The whole gains more points than the individual parts by themselves, so even just turning fruits into juice gives more points than just two fruits. Things that you find in later areas are way more valuable than things you get early on, so a pineapple will certainly get more done than an apple. Store bought things that haven't been improved have little to no effect at all.

  • Sometimes a new recipe requires a previous recipe you don't have yet - often these basic recipes or patterns can be bought at the store.

  • The majority of the recipes and patterns can only be found by digging or charming animals. On that same topic, the recipes/patterns that are given for filling up a friendship meter can only be gained from that person.

  • Usually when a new area is opened, your new tasks will require items found only in that area. Move on and explore if you can't find what you need.

  • Making collars for your pets can be helpful when you want to quickly increase a creature's skill at a particular task, like digging or climbing. The move speed ones make both you and your pet faster at getting around. Don't worry about running out of collar slots later on with your favorite creature; you can replace old collars with new ones when all the slots are full, but when you do, the old collar is discarded. You get to pick which one goes, though.

  • Bonuses from multiple collars of the same type will stack. That is, you can put three move speed collars on it and it'll let you rush as if you were wearing rocket skates.

  • If you want to plant something, and it's not shown in the current selection, you have to plant more crops in general to "unlock" the one you want. Each island has six different crop types for their patch, and you can't grow a crop from one area in the other.

  • On the whole money making end, gems are usually worth the most, and recipe-created foods too, although they're usually more expensive to make than sell. Try to get a bull-type creature as soon as possible to increase your gains from selling stuff. In addition to that, once you've unlocked the other island, you'll find that items exclusive to one island sell for more on the other island's shops. Supply and demand, and all that jazz.

  • The higher your creature's charm level is, the higher the starting skill levels of any egg you get from using that pet to charm one out of a creature. They did this because they wanted you to be able to use new creatures you get right away without having to train them up to the area you're in.

  • If you're not sure what of anything you're looking at, you can hover over it with the mouse and it'll let you know some quick info.

So my question is, does anyone know of SIMILAR games (for Mac)? I am nuts for this game (though it has a Mac bug at the point you have to fix broken router unfortunately) and desperately would like recommendations for similar games. Any and all suggestions welcome! It's the gathering, recipe making, stuff making parts I like most, fyi, if that helps. Thanks! Let me know....

Q: I cannot find the paint recipe!! I have spoken to the professor who asked me to make him a broom, gave me the "recipe" for the broom, which includes paint. When I try to "make" paint, it tells me I can't because I don't have that "recipe"!! I cannot move forward in the game now and am getting quite annoyed. I know to make paint you need oil and dye. I have tons of dye. Have yet to dig up any oil and I've been digging everywhere for a while now. I don't think I'll find oil until I get the paint recipe.

Help! I'm on the "heating element" part and have done all the tasks down to making the pink ninja outfit. BUT, somehow it skipped JJ asking for the orchid bouquet so now I have no tasks and I'm wandering aimlessly looking for the "recipe" for the orchid bouquet. I'm guessing that's why he didn't ask for it, because I didn't have the recipe. How can I get that darn recipe? I've been playing for hours charming critters and digging stuff up trying to get it and I can't come across it! Am I missing something or do I just have to keep wandering?

@ jsttoomuch : have you upgraded your watering can to the max? Once you have enough watering can capacity, new flower arrangements become available. Hope this helps!

Otherwise, for the collars, I already have 41 but do not have the associated medal... so probably there are even more! :s

(This is as much a test as a question...)

OK, I really want to buy this game, but I have PCs and Macs, and I won't buy it if I have to buy it twice. My question, then, is this: If I buy Wandering Willows, am I buying "Wandering Willows" and can then download it for both platforms? Or am I buying, for example "Wandering Willows for x86 Windows", and unable to also download the mac one? I can't find this info explicitly anywhere on PlayFirst's site, and suspect it wants me to pay for them separately.

Any ideas Jay?

[Edit: It's a good question, and one that does not come up often. When you purchase a game from the casual game portals, you are purchasing either the Mac or the Windows version, not a version that may be downloaded for either platform. Although I have been able to get a Mac version for a Windows version I previously purchased through Big Fish, you would have to go through the normal customer support channels to do that. -Jay]

Also, for those looking for something similar and awesome, try Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (or it's sequel) for DS. They're both exceptionally well made games. If you want to lose the dungeon crawling aspect of it, then try Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (GBA) or any of the Animal Crossing games (GameCube, DS, Wii). I wouldn't really recommend any of the other Harvest Moon games though... they really swing wildly between awesome and total garbage.

I've been finding rubies and diamonds in the Tropics section, mostly around the bottom of the area. Go through your pets and find one that finds more gems through charming. In my game, it's Cowlie, Monthrax, and Morilla to name a few. I don't think it matters which animal they charm. They can all produce gems.

I've visited the tree that is supposed to supply nutmeg over and over, but I keep finding two sticks of cinnamon. I've harvested the cinnamon repeatedly, hoping nutmeg might grow back in it place, but no such luck. At this point, I am stuck, because making the ale is the only quest available, and it seems I can't progress until I finish it (I've finished all the other available quests). Any suggestions/ideas? Is this a glitch that I can't fix?

On the tropics island. The animals found in the bottom half of the island give them up.

I have a problem. I bought Wandering Willows from Big Fish Games and I have made it to 145 tasks and I have 5 of the main tasks done but now every time I go to play the game it shuts down. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program and scanned it with my anti virus software and it all checks out. Is there a glitch with the game or is it just me?

LOTS OF ANSWERS

More areas, critters, and items will open up if you keep doing the side quests. there are 162 quests total for this game, and the nerdy kid tends to open up a lot of stuff for you( for example, rock areas and the brigde next to him...) Also, some shortcuts are made by comical mistakes (like the prof. firing a laser into a tree, thus making an open path...). Make sure your mouse highlight shows a rake, then click for the seed pop-up. below the prof, there are i belive 4 total trees that have cinnomin and nutmeg(rarish). Same with lemons and limes, just strip the trees of all they are holding, then come back in 3-4 minutes and try again. the Cat Species is one of the best, as well. Especially Rao (med dig, med climb, SUPA HIGH charm (high charm++...) and low eng (about 1600 before hes hungry)). He also has the bulls special, but better...

Also, a cheap cash trick for those who have a lv 16 Rao:

THis works at anytime you have it at 16 charm: Buy ultra high class food at 61 WB, then sell it back. Rao sellback at 16 charm: 92. 31 WB profit per food. You could do this on other items( min price of 5, turns into 7...) but this supa food makes a smashing 31 profit each. Think about it...

About Gems

All those people saying tropics, south half are only half right. you can get a lot of gems from all over tropics, there just tends to be more critters south of the town, but if your hunting for tons of gems, try recharming kababa's pet. It can drop anywhere from 2-7 seeds (hibicus only, it appears) or 1-7 diamonds, sapphires or rubies. also diamond drops seem to be higher on eesas, northern bound birds seem to carry more sapphires, and rubies are dang near random...

I have all eggs except for the Chacha. The walkthrough on Gamezebo shows maps with where the animals are, but I have found plenty of animals to appear in other sections. Thus, I don't necessarily trust the maps. I have only seen one Chacha during the entire time I have played the game and he didn't give me an egg. I can't remember exactly where I saw him and I am trying to find another, but don't want to waste the time walking the islands over and over. Anyone remember where they've seen a Chacha?

To Diana:

You're talking about the quest where you have to charm Kababa's pet at the end? Level 16 is the max that any of the pets can reach for charming. Any pet should be able to do this quest as long as it's built up to the max on charming. Just be sure the pet is well fed before you start. You've already got good collars on it, so you should be able to do it.

hi, i have wandering willows but i think i ve got a bug, every time i close the game it "forgets" me, and i lose all the progress i've worked on, any idea how to fix it? thanks

[You might want to contact customer support at the site where you purchased the game from to see if they know what the issue is. That being said, it sounds like a permissions problem if you're running on Windows. The game may be having trouble writing (saving your game state) to the directory where it is installed, thereby seemingly "forgetting" about your progress. That is a common Windows issue. -Jay]

I just got a demo of this to try out to see if I'd like it enough to buy. However, each time I create my avatar and confirm I'm done, when the game starts to load/start it crashes with no error message. :(
