Otherworld: Spring of Shadows

elleIt all started when you moved into an old house in the English countryside, hoping for a chance to be alone and take new stock in your life. But are we ever really alone? As it turns out, there is more to this world than what's apparent on the surface. The fairytales you heard when you were young, the ones you thought stuffed with nonsense and meant only as cautionary allegories to frighten children into behaving properly, are not so far from the truth. So, as curious as Alice in Wonderland, you peek behind the veneer, following clues left by Fiona, a little girl trapped in another dimension, and become caught up in Otherworld: Spring of Shadows, a sumptuously-detailed fantasy adventure-hybrid from Boomzap.

elle_otherworld_springofshadows_image1.jpgArmed with little more than an enchanted knife and a water pitcher, you seem to the be only one who can prevent the Shade's eternal winter, a blight of ice and death the foul creature hatefully threatens to cast upon the earth. Do this by searching high and low, across all terrains, for the magical charms that will activate Fiona's magical locket. The Shade will not make this easy on you and—as evidenced by the victims which lay dead in his path—he's quite capable of doing you harm, a thought that weighs heavy on your mind as you face the Shade in a mortal battle.

All that's for the end, though. First you'll explore six chapters, encountering not only mini-games, puzzles and hidden object scenes, you will also earn new achievements and uncover an optional side-quest. None of which are mightily difficult, so you won't be pulled away from the enjoyment of adventuring and simply taking in the beautifully elaborate scenery. There is never a sparkle in sight to deter from this, but "casual" mode still provides plenty of hints, skipping and guided help at your request. "Expert" is a little less affable but, if you have the guts, choose "Hard Core" to truly go it alone (you'll also earn a badge of honor for that achievement.)

elle_otherworld_springofshadows_image2.jpgAnalysis: This is not your typical hidden object game—far from it! No piles of randomly-strewn anachronisms; hidden object scenes fit the setting perfectly, are well-composed and pleasing to behold. Even better, they make sense! Collect only what's needed, never returning to the same scene because you have foresight to grab important bits the first time around. In fact, handy items do not disappear after first use and they often have multiple purposes. Finally, some logic.

Along with the traditional type of hidden object scenes, searches vary from multiples of a single object, or broken pieces needing reconstruction, or matching pairs or even riddle clues. It's absolutely refreshing to escape the boredom of cluttered compositions and jarringly out-of-place collections. As for minigames? They're rather easy yet they do make you think without requiring elaborate note taking or pulling of hairs to complete. Jigsaws, tile swaps and matching games are strongly emphasized here but there are many adventure-centered quest tasks as well. Making good of the repetition, is the unique style and interesting artwork in the games.

elle_otherworld_springofshadows_image4.jpgOtherworld: Spring of Shadows weaves a fantastic story and absorbs you into surreal environments, exactly as you'd expect from Boomzap, the gamemaker who brought us Awakening 2: Moonfell Wood and Death Under Tuscan Skies: a Dana Knighstone Novel. An appreciation of ambiance and entertaining tale-telling is well met here; every detail is intricately-designed to add mood and atmosphere. The music seems to come from a strange, 1960s British supernatural horror flick: enticing, haunted notes echoed by soft, etheral vocals. Outside of the occasional cut-scene, there is no voice-over to jar you out of the moment, so the focus remains almost entirely on adventuring.

This dedication to drawing the player into the story is Otherworld's strongest asset and, because of that, it also has its weaknesses: a mild lag between changing scenes that is made noticeable because of all the moving back and forth between scenes. Even so, there's a great pleasure that comes from traveling across the richly-appointed settings. After all, sometimes it's nice to believe in fairy tales, even if they're not actually real (or are they?)

A Collector's Edition is also available. It contains bonus content not found in the standard edition: an additional chapter, wallpapers, strategy guide, and more.

Otherworld: Spring of Shadows walkthrough
Part 1: Chapters 1-3

Chapter 1: The Missing Girl

Follow the Shade

  • Zoom in on the mirror on the stairs. Take the Iron Key.

  • Zoom in on the table with the tea set. Take the Handle.

  • Zoom in on the painting above the fireplace. Take the Stone Fragment (1/3).

  • Zoom in on the back porch door. Use the Handle, then turn it. Go outside.

  • Take the Stone Fragment (2/3) from the hanging orange flower.

  • Proceed down the path to the gate.

  • Zoom in on the yellow flower below the statue on the right. Move the leaves and take the Stone Fragment (3/3).

  • Use the Stone Fragments at the base of the statue on the left. Take the Star Dial and the Metal Pin from the cache.

  • Go back to the porch and zoom in on the hanging lantern on the right. Use the Metal Pin to open the lock, then take the Moon Dial.

  • Go back to the gate and zoom in on the lock in the middle of the gate.

  • Use the Star and Moon Dials in their respective slots to start a minigame.

    • The goal is to count the stars, suns, and moons surrounding the lock, then set the correct number on each dial.

    • Click and drag each dial to turn them to the proper number.

    • Solution

  • Use the Iron Key the girl in the mirror gave you on the revealed keyhole, then enter through the gate.

The Garden

  • Zoom in on the statue and take the Wire Brush.

  • Continue up the path and zoom in on the gazebo door.

  • Use the Wire Brush on the metal disc in the center 3x to start a minigame.

    • The goal is to open the correct flowers on the vine.

    • The metal disc tells you what flowers need to be open.

    • The easiest way to solve this is to open all the flowers, then close the ones that don't qualify.

      • You are looking for only red and white flowers, and only flowers with five petals.

      • Solution

  • Enter the gazebo. Take the Pitcher from the fallen statue.

  • If you zoom in on the font, you find that you can't get the object lodged in the drain. Instead, exit the gazebo, then go back one more screen after that.

  • Use the Pitcher in the brook to fill it, then go back inside the gazebo.

  • Zoom in on the basin and use the filled Pitcher. Then take the Butterfly Wing.

Find the Locket

  • Exit the gazebo and zoom in on the garden patch (to the right of the path, with the bunny statues).

  • Use the Butterfly Wing with the jeweled butterfly to start a hidden-object scene.

    • Find the gems that are shown in the toolbar below. You can only select the gems as they appear in the toolbar.

    • Click the darker green plants to move them aside. Click the snail to move it as well.

    • Screenshot

  • You have acquired Locket Gems. Go back a screen, zoom in on the blindfolded statue, and use the Gems on the slots to start a minigame.

    • Drag the gems to their respective slots. Gems will lock in place once they are correctly positioned.

    • Click a gem to rotate it.

    • Larger slots may hold more than one gem.

    • Solution

  • Take the locket.

Rescue the Dryad

  • Go to the cherry tree. Zoom in on the trunk and talk to the Dryad.

  • Leave the cherry tree, then go down the rightmost path to the lily pond gate.

  • Zoom in on the junk in the broken wheelbarrow, on the left. Take the Needle and Thread.

  • Zoom in on the flowers growing on the tree on the right, then take the Disc (1/2).

  • Go back 3x, until you are at the back porch.

  • Click the strange bird, then zoom in on the hanging pot. Take the Torn Cloth.

  • Go back inside the house. Zoom in on the canvasse-wrapped chair on the right.

  • Use the Torn Cloth, then the Needle and Thread, with the torn Gardening Glove, then take it.

  • Exit the house and zoom in again on the hanging pot. Use the Glove with the thorns, then take the Handle.

  • Go inside and zoom in on the large cupboard. Use the Handle with the door, then take the Paint Remover.

  • Zoom in on the painting. Use the Paint Remover until the full image is revealed. You have to splash it on enough parts of the painting to solve the puzzle.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Ancient Knife revealed on the left side of the painting.

  • Go back to the cherry tree. Zoom in on the tree and use the Ancient Knife to start a hidden object scene.

  • Find all the black flowers to remove them.

  • Screenshot

  • Talk to the freed Dryad to get the Disc (2/2).

The Lily Pond

  • Go to the lily pond gate. Zoom in on the lock and use the Ancient Knife 2x to clear the moss.

  • Then use the Disc (from the Dryad and from the flowers to the right of the gate) on the slot to start a minigame.

    • Click the hexagonal tiles to rotate them so they are contiguous with the rest of the design on the disc.

    • The design is symmetrical. I found it easier to start with the tiles with the fewest neighboring tiles, like those on the outside.
      Solution.

  • Go through the open gate. Take the Empty Sack on the right side of the screen.

  • Click the alcove in the upper right of the screen for a hidden object scene.

  • Find all of the spiders. There are three hanging vines you have to click and drag out of the way. I've edited the screenshot below to remove the vines.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Tear-Shaped Carving. When the alcove opens, take the Wire Cutters (1/2) and open the green sketchbook for a minigame.

    • Drag the pieces to the correct spot to reassemble the sketches. Pieces will lock in place when correctly positioned.

    • Click a piece to rotate it.

    • The green sketch has larger pieces, so I found it easier to assemble it first.

    • Solution

Jewels and Gargoyles

  • The sketches give you a clue for what to do next. Go back to the lily pond gate and use the Ancient Knife on the flower carving on the tree on the right.

  • Click and drag to trace the outline of the flower. If you let go of the mouse or are too inaccurate, you will have to start over. Start with the stem.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Figurine (1/3), then use the Empty Sack from the lily pond with the soil to get a sack of Magic Soil.

  • Go to the stepped path to the gazebo. Zoom in on the garden patch (with the, erm, bunnies) and take the Wire Cutters (2/2).

  • Zoom in on the winged statue on the left and use the Tear-Shaped Carving (from the alcove in the lily pond) in the slot to start a minigame.

    • Find the three pieces that go in the slots.

    • Click to rotate; click and drag to put them in place. Correctly-placed pieces will lock in place.

    • Note that each piece has one of three designs, and that each design matches one of the slots available.

    • Now rotate the three glass wheels so the image in the center matches the carved design above.

    • Solution

    Take the Ruby from the alcove

  • Go back to the lily pond gate. Zoom in on the wheelbarrow and use the Wire Cutters (from the bunny statues in the garden patch, and from the lily pond alcove) on the wire grate to get the Wire Mesh.

  • Go back to the gazebo path. Zoom in on the frog statue on the left.

  • Use the Wire Mesh on the opening, then use the Wire Cutters on each of the corners to trim it to fit.

  • Use the Magic Soil on the sifter, then drag it back and forth until the Sapphire is shown. Take the Sapphire.

  • Use the Sack on the Soil to reclaim it.

  • Go back to the garden gate. Zoom in on the left statue, use the Sapphire on the empty eye, and take the Figurine (2/3).

  • Do the same with the right statue and the Ruby to get Figurine (3/3).

The Eternal Flower

  • Go to the lily pond. Zoom in on the miniature statue in the lower left corner and use the Figurines for a minigame.

    • Arrange the Figurines so that their relative positions match the three sets of colored discs above.

    • Click two figurines to switch positions. Note that the black figurine cannot be moved.

    • Solution

  • Zoom in on the planter in the middle of the pond.

  • Take the Dead Eternal Flower.

  • Go to the cherry tree and show the Dead Flower to the Dryad to get the Seed Pod.

  • Go back to the lily pond and zoom in on the pond for a hidden-object scene.

  • Find the Planter Pieces.

  • Screenshot

  • Use the Pitcher on the pond to fill it.

  • Zoom in on the planter and use the Planter Pieces to start a minigame.

    • Drag the pieces into place to repair the planter. Correctly placed pieces will lock in place.

    • Click a piece to rotate it.

    • Try assembling the outer pieces first.

  • Use the Sifted Soil, the Seed Pod, then the Filled Pitcher on the planter, then use the Ancient Knife with the Eternal Flower to take it.

  • Go back to the cherry tree and give the Flower to the Dryad.

  • Go to the gazebo, zoom in on the font, and give the Flower to Fiona. Take the Lily Charm.

  • Put the Lily Charm in the locket and watch the cutscene.

Chapter Two: The Intruder

Find the Intruder

    • Find the diamond-shaped Wooden Tiles.

    • You'll have to open two cardboard boxes, the small wooden box, and the small travelling case to find all the tiles.

    • Screenshot

  • Zoom in on the door on the left and use the Wooden Tiles to start a minigame.

    • Arrange the wooden tiles so the strings in the picture are continuous.

    • Click two tiles to switch places.

    • Try setting the eight outer tiles before the two inner tiles.

    • Solution

    • Then click the balloons in the order of the numbered strings they are attached to.

    • If you click a wrong button, you will have to start the sequence again.

    • If the top balloon is A and the bottom is H, then the order is:

      1. D

      2. B

      3. E

      4. H

      5. C

      6. G

      7. A

      8. F

  • Enter the door and pick up the Battery (1/2) on the ground. It's too dark to see, so exit for now.

  • Zoom in on the family portrait, just to the right of the bedroom door. Take the Battery (2/2) from the frame. Note the time on the portrait.

  • Zoom in on the drawer beneath the portrait. Drag it open, then use the Batteries with the Flashlight. Take the Flashlight.

  • Reenter the bedroom. Use the Flashlight on the darkness.

  • Zoom in on the bed in the lower right corner for a hidden-object scene.

    • Find all the Bulbs.

    • You'll have to move or open the toy truck, the Slinky, the sail of the sailboat, the teapot, the basket, the penant flag, the lion's mouth, and the piggy bank to find all the bulbs.

    • Screenshot

  • Use the Bulbs with the chandelier at the top of the screen.

    • It's easier to assemble the half of the sketch with the Hobgoblin drawing on it.

    • Solution

  • Read the tip about what Hobgoblins like. Take the Map from the open alcove.

Find Eggs

  • Use the map to go to the old barn.

  • Take the wooden Step (1/4) leaning against the short barrels.

  • Zoom in on the bucket and take the Step (2/4).

  • Zoom in on the truck bed for a hidden-object scene.

  • Use the map to return to the barn, then go back to the loft.

  • Use the bag on the hay to get a Bag of Hay.

  • Go back to the sheep pen outside. Use the Bag of Hay on the hook so the sheep will move.

  • Zoom in on the pen where the sheep was lying and take the Shears.

  • Use the Shears on the sheep. Click and drag vertically until the sheep is shorn to collect Dirty Wool.

  • Go to the front of the barn and zoom in on the bucket. Use the Filled Pitcher (filled with water from the faucet in the barn workshop) and the Soap (found near the faucet) in the bucket.

  • Use the Dirty Wool in the water. Drag it in circles until it is clean, then collect the Clean Wool.

  • Go to the loft. Use the Wool on the carding machine to the right of the window. Drag the card left and right until you have Fine Wool.

  • Use the Wooden Wheel (from the truck bed hidden-object scene outside the barn) on the spinning machine to the left of the window. Zoom in, use the Wool, click the pedal 3x, and take the Yarn.

  • Go downstairs to the workshop. Use the yarn on the loom on the workbench to start a minigame.

    • Complete the pattern by filling in the white squares with the proper color.

    • Click a color on the patch on the left, then click a spot to dye it.

    • You can always re-dye a square. Squares that you have dyed have a white circle on them.

  • Solution

  • Go forward 2x. Zoom in on the dead woman and take the Fruit Peeling (2/3). Ignore the monkey for now.

  • Go forward 2x. Use the Ancient Knife on the vines.

    • Cut the vine on top, then the next one, and so on. You only need to remove the vines in the center. There are seven vines to cut.

    • Find the Fruit that matches the three peelings.

    • Click a fruit to mark that it is not the correct fruit: The fruit that is NOT selected will be the correct answer. You can undo this marking by clicking again.

    • The green part with the stem matches the bottom of the fruit, the other green part matches the top, and the peeled skin matches the middle.

    • If need be, a kludgy way to solve this is to mark all the fruit, then click to unmark and remark each fruit until you find the answer.

    • Solution

  • Go to the wagon and zoom in on the body. Give the Fruit to the monkey.

  • Zoom in again. Take the Rope that is wrapped around her.

  • Go back one screen (to where you found the fruit). Use the Rope on the branch to the right of the stepped path.

    • You need to shoot three sets of Weights. Just wait until the monkey is as far from the ornaments as possible, then shoot.

The Wagon

  • Once you get the Weights from the monkey, go back to the wagon. Use the Weights from the mobile hanging from the wagon to start a minigame.

    • Balance the mobile with the weights. Click two weights to switch them.

    • The owl figure is the balance: The closer it moves towards the center, the closer you are to the solution.

    • Screenshot

    • One possible solution is described below.

      • First set Discs 2 and 4 with Button C.

      • Set Disc 3 with Button B, so that the red part is on the bottom.

      • Use Buttons A and D to set Discs 1 and 6 so that the red part is on the bottom, and to set Disc 5 so that the red part is on the left. The precise way to do this will depend on how you start.

      • Once you have everything set up this way, click Button D once, then click Button B once.

  • Now complete the hidden-object scene.

    • Find pairs of related objects. Click each half of a pair to select the pair.

    • Solution

  • Enter the cave. Use the Matches (from the wagon) on the torch held by the statue the right.

  • Take the lit Torch and use it on the three other torches as they appear.

  • Screenshot

  • Go further inside the cave. There is a large stone control panel on the near side of the water, surrounded by three smaller "stone codes". Zoom in on the leftmost stone code and note what it says.

  • Zoom in on the control panel and enter the proper keys, according to the stone code.

    • The clue shows a water drop and four hash marks. Find four water-related keys on the control panel and click to select them.

    • Solution

    • When the Shade is stunned, use your Potion on him before the timer runs out.

    • Do this four times to defeat the Shade.

  • Take the Shade Charm that appears on top of the vortext.

Ran in to what seems to be a crippling bug right after the start of chapter 2. There's a scene where you have to pick up a number of wooden tiles. I can see the last tile in a box, but when I click on it nothing happens. I double checked by using the hint, and that is what I'm supposed to be clicking on. I don't know if the fact that I'm playing the demo has anything to do with it, but I'm certainly not going to buy the full game if it looks like I can't progress.

I'm having the same problem as Regy...bought the Collector's Edition today and got to the HOS where you have to collect the wooden tiles. The last one (in the box at the right side of the screen) I've clicked on about 100 times and nothing is working! I don't want to have spent all that money to not be able to continue! Help!

1. this game is excellent!! 2. I had an issue with Chapter 2 also. SPOILER ALERT - mine was not getting the 1st battery on the coffee table. I am on a Lenovo ThinkPad T410 running Windows 7. I read someone's comment to update DirecX which I did (even though that required some puzzle solving. Hint: When your prompted to chose a file location for the extracted files, pick a place you can find them easily because your DIRECTX.EXE file is your next step to load) This update did not solve my issue with the game after the update. I have not yet rebooted though, but wasn't prompted to so it's probably not necessary. Sigh. Next I'm going to just contact Support lol

  • Take the Stone Fragment (2/3) from the hanging orange flower.

  • Proceed down the path to the gate.

  • Zoom in on the yellow flower below the statue on the right. Move the leaves and take the Stone Fragment (3/3).

  • Use the Stone Fragments at the base of the statue on the left. Take the Star Dial and the Metal Pin from the cache.

  • Go back to the porch and zoom in on the hanging lantern on the right. Use the Metal Pin to open the lock, then take the Moon Dial.

  • Go back to the gate and zoom in on the lock in the middle of the gate.

  • Use the Star and Moon Dials in their respective slots to start a minigame.

    • The goal is to count the stars, suns, and moons surrounding the lock, then set the correct number on each dial.

    • Click and drag each dial to turn them to the proper number.

    • Solution

  • Use the Iron Key the girl in the mirror gave you on the revealed keyhole, then enter through the gate.

The Garden

  • Zoom in on the statue and take the Wire Brush.

  • Continue up the path and zoom in on the gazebo door.

  • Use the Wire Brush on the metal disc in the center 3x to start a minigame.

    • The goal is to open the correct flowers on the vine.

    • The metal disc tells you what flowers need to be open.

    • The easiest way to solve this is to open all the flowers, then close the ones that don't qualify.

      • You are looking for only red and white flowers, and only flowers with five petals.

      • Solution

  • Enter the gazebo. Take the Pitcher from the fallen statue.

  • If you zoom in on the font, you find that you can't get the object lodged in the drain. Instead, exit the gazebo, then go back one more screen after that.

  • Use the Pitcher in the brook to fill it, then go back inside the gazebo.

  • Zoom in on the basin and use the filled Pitcher. Then take the Butterfly Wing.

Find the Locket

  • Exit the gazebo and zoom in on the garden patch (to the right of the path, with the bunny statues).

  • Use the Butterfly Wing with the jeweled butterfly to start a hidden-object scene.

    • Find the gems that are shown in the toolbar below. You can only select the gems as they appear in the toolbar.

    • Click the darker green plants to move them aside. Click the snail to move it as well.

    • Screenshot

  • You have acquired Locket Gems. Go back a screen, zoom in on the blindfolded statue, and use the Gems on the slots to start a minigame.

    • Drag the gems to their respective slots. Gems will lock in place once they are correctly positioned.

    • Click a gem to rotate it.

    • Larger slots may hold more than one gem.

    • Solution

  • Take the locket.

Rescue the Dryad

  • Go to the cherry tree. Zoom in on the trunk and talk to the Dryad.

  • Leave the cherry tree, then go down the rightmost path to the lily pond gate.

  • Zoom in on the junk in the broken wheelbarrow, on the left. Take the Needle and Thread.

  • Zoom in on the flowers growing on the tree on the right, then take the Disc (1/2).

  • Go back 3x, until you are at the back porch.

  • Click the strange bird, then zoom in on the hanging pot. Take the Torn Cloth.

  • Go back inside the house. Zoom in on the canvasse-wrapped chair on the right.

  • Use the Torn Cloth, then the Needle and Thread, with the torn Gardening Glove, then take it.

  • Exit the house and zoom in again on the hanging pot. Use the Glove with the thorns, then take the Handle.

  • Go inside and zoom in on the large cupboard. Use the Handle with the door, then take the Paint Remover.

  • Zoom in on the painting. Use the Paint Remover until the full image is revealed. You have to splash it on enough parts of the painting to solve the puzzle.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Ancient Knife revealed on the left side of the painting.

  • Go back to the cherry tree. Zoom in on the tree and use the Ancient Knife to start a hidden object scene.

  • Then use the Disc (from the Dryad and from the flowers to the right of the gate) on the slot to start a minigame.

    • Click the hexagonal tiles to rotate them so they are contiguous with the rest of the design on the disc.

    • The design is symmetrical. I found it easier to start with the tiles with the fewest neighboring tiles, like those on the outside.
      Solution.

  • Go through the open gate. Take the Empty Sack on the right side of the screen.

  • Click the alcove in the upper right of the screen for a hidden object scene.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Tear-Shaped Carving. When the alcove opens, take the Wire Cutters (1/2) and open the green sketchbook for a minigame.

    • Drag the pieces to the correct spot to reassemble the sketches. Pieces will lock in place when correctly positioned.

    • Click a piece to rotate it.

    • The green sketch has larger pieces, so I found it easier to assemble it first.

    • Solution

Jewels and Gargoyles

  • The sketches give you a clue for what to do next. Go back to the lily pond gate and use the Ancient Knife on the flower carving on the tree on the right.

  • Click and drag to trace the outline of the flower. If you let go of the mouse or are too inaccurate, you will have to start over. Start with the stem.

  • Screenshot

  • Take the Figurine (1/3), then use the Empty Sack from the lily pond with the soil to get a sack of Magic Soil.

  • Go to the stepped path to the gazebo. Zoom in on the garden patch (with the, erm, bunnies) and take the Wire Cutters (2/2).

  • Zoom in on the winged statue on the left and use the Tear-Shaped Carving (from the alcove in the lily pond) in the slot to start a minigame.

    • Find the three pieces that go in the slots.

    • Click to rotate; click and drag to put them in place. Correctly-placed pieces will lock in place.

    • Note that each piece has one of three designs, and that each design matches one of the slots available.

    • Now rotate the three glass wheels so the image in the center matches the carved design above.

    • Solution

    Take the Ruby from the alcove

  • Go back to the lily pond gate. Zoom in on the wheelbarrow and use the Wire Cutters (from the bunny statues in the garden patch, and from the lily pond alcove) on the wire grate to get the Wire Mesh.

  • Go back to the gazebo path. Zoom in on the frog statue on the left.

  • Use the Wire Mesh on the opening, then use the Wire Cutters on each of the corners to trim it to fit.

  • Use the Magic Soil on the sifter, then drag it back and forth until the Sapphire is shown. Take the Sapphire.

  • Use the Sack on the Soil to reclaim it.

  • Go back to the garden gate. Zoom in on the left statue, use the Sapphire on the empty eye, and take the Figurine (2/3).

  • Do the same with the right statue and the Ruby to get Figurine (3/3).

  • Go back to the lily pond and zoom in on the pond for a hidden-object scene.

  • Find the Planter Pieces.

  • Screenshot

  • Use the Pitcher on the pond to fill it.

  • Zoom in on the planter and use the Planter Pieces to start a minigame.

    • Drag the pieces into place to repair the planter. Correctly placed pieces will lock in place.

    • Click a piece to rotate it.

    • Try assembling the outer pieces first.

  • Use the Sifted Soil, the Seed Pod, then the Filled Pitcher on the planter, then use the Ancient Knife with the Eternal Flower to take it.

  • Go back to the cherry tree and give the Flower to the Dryad.

    • Arrange the wooden tiles so the strings in the picture are continuous.

    • Click two tiles to switch places.

    • Try setting the eight outer tiles before the two inner tiles.

    • Solution

    • Then click the balloons in the order of the numbered strings they are attached to.

    • If you click a wrong button, you will have to start the sequence again.

    • If the top balloon is A and the bottom is H, then the order is:

    • The green part with the stem matches the bottom of the fruit, the other green part matches the top, and the peeled skin matches the middle.

    • If need be, a kludgy way to solve this is to mark all the fruit, then click to unmark and remark each fruit until you find the answer.

    • Solution

  • Go to the wagon and zoom in on the body. Give the Fruit to the monkey.

  • Zoom in again. Take the Rope that is wrapped around her.

    • You need to shoot three sets of Weights. Just wait until the monkey is as far from the ornaments as possible, then shoot.

The Wagon

  • Once you get the Weights from the monkey, go back to the wagon. Use the Weights from the mobile hanging from the wagon to start a minigame.

    • Balance the mobile with the weights. Click two weights to switch them.

    • The owl figure is the balance: The closer it moves towards the center, the closer you are to the solution.

    • There are a few possible solutions: One is below.

    • Solution

  • Enter the wagon. Zoom in on the cabinet for a minigame.

    • Click the blue buttons to rotate the colored discs so they match the color of the background.

    • Consult the screenshot below. Button A spins discs 1 and 6. B spins 1, 3, and 5.

    • C spins 2 and 4. D spins 5 and 6.

    • Screenshot

    • One possible solution is described below.

      • First set Discs 2 and 4 with Button C.

      • Set Disc 3 with Button B, so that the red part is on the bottom.

      • Use Buttons A and D to set Discs 1 and 6 so that the red part is on the bottom, and to set Disc 5 so that the red part is on the left. The precise way to do this will depend on how you start.

      • Once you have everything set up this way, click Button D once, then click Button B once.

  • Now complete the hidden-object scene.

    • Find pairs of related objects. Click each half of a pair to select the pair.
