Rinngogo's Tarachine is their longest, the most comprehensive, and maybe the loveliest escape. It's a complete fairytale featuring magical beings, spells, wise old men, and challenges - and of course, puzzles.
Notice, that at the beginning of the game you can change the language to English.
Princ Liten's mother is weaker and weaker, and her strenght is leaving her. The only cure which would help her is a fruit called Tarachine and it can be found in the neighbouring country Berg. It's a long way to Berg, and for Liten is only a child, the way seems too complicated and maybe dangerous for him. Alas, Liten is a brave (very) young man and decides to set on a journey and get the fruit for his mom - luckily, he gets a devoted helper.
Without the helper, he wouldn't be let out of the castle and so your first objective is to find the companion. Then they must get a map in a nearby village - elders living there are said to have a map and also a wise advice - and with the map reach the city and go further and further, until they arrive to a well guarded secret garden where Tarachine grows and prince Liten gets one for his mother. The journey did worth the effort - mother's health improvement is miraculous!
The game consists of six chapters and each contains many puzzles. Well elaborated hint system is quite helpful and provides exactly what you need - just a hint, not a full solution. The game has autosave and as mentioned earlier, an English language option. It's rather long - the walkthrough takes more than twenty minutes.
Have a good time and enjoy!
TARACHINE (Android, Android Tablet)
Got so stumped on the white/yellow/red flowers puzzle in Task 4 "Crossing Borders". Turns out it's quite similar to a form I've seen this puzzle take in other games.
Looking around the game area, the only obvious puzzle to solve is the three-button panel in the first scene. The buttons are white, red, and yellow. So we need clues to what buttons to push and in what order.
Looking around further, we see a curious plot of flowers growing. And look, they happen to be white, red, and yellow. There must be a connection there!
And interestingly, they seem to be arranged in what looks like a tic-tac-toe grid.
So it appears we have something connected. But how can we get any information from it?
You'll need the paper clue sheet before you can do anything.
The paper clue sheet is hidden under the bushes at the left of the first scene.
The clue sheet shows you the solution, but you have to understand how things work.
First of all, note the frame and its patterns: white on the left, dots on the top, lines on the right, and gridding on the bottom.
Now note the pieces displayed beneath the frame. Since this looks somewhat like a game of dominoes in progress, that's what I'm going to refer to the little pieces as.
The dominoes below the frame seem to be grouped together, in six groups.
That tells us that there are going to be six "digits" in our solution.
Also notice the arrow underneath the dominoes.
This gives us the proper order, in case left-to-right isn't obvious.
So what exactly is the clue sheet telling us?
Let's look at the first "digit". There are four dominoes, covering all four patterns. What could those mean?
Here's where you might remember a similar puzzle in other games. If you consider those first four dominoes, how might they correspond to a position in that grid of flowers?
In the top frame, the four patterns seem to form walls. And there's only one spot in the grid of flowers surrounded by four "walls".
The very center position is completely surrounded. Maybe the presence of a white domino, dotted domino, lined domino, and gridded domino tells us that we should be looking at the position surrounded by a left wall, top wall, right wall, and bottom wall. And that could only be the center position.
Cool—now we know how to figure out the rest!
The combinations of dominoes refer to the center, upper-left, upper-right, center-left, bottom-center, and center-right positions in the flower grid.
These positions contain white, red, white, yellow, white, and yellow flowers, respectively.
So we have our combination for the three-button panel.
Press white, red, white, yellow, white, and yellow. The panel opens to reveal a key.
Concerning the puzzle in other games:
A lot of times you'll see it with number puzzles where the tic-tac-toe grid is numbered 1 through 9, and 1 is the upper-left of the grid (a backwards L shape), 2 is the top-center (a U shape), 3 is the top-right (an L shape), and so on.
Hope that helps someone out! 🙂
Great game with lots of areas and puzzles. Thank you so much for this link!
When looking at the map, it appears the Tarachine grows in the mountains near the nuclear cooling towers! Special plant, indeed!
