Welcome to the walkthrough for Robin’s Quest: A Legend is Born on Gamezebo. Robin’s Quest: A Legend is Born is a hidden object game for the PC created by Gogii Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to complete Robin’s Quest: A Legend is Born.

General Information

Main Scenes

  • The default cursor in the game is the yellow arrow. Move the mouse and the cursor will change as it moves over different hotspots. Left click when the icon appears to perform an action. The walking boots icon will move Robin to a new area. The speech bubble icon starts a conversation with a character. The gears icon moves or interacts with an object. The magnifying glass examines an object for a close-up view. The grasping hand icon adds an object to the inventory or to the progress section of the journal. The crossed red circle means that the area cannot currently be accessed until certain events have been completed. A beckoning hand indicates that an ability can be used on it.
  • There are many inventory items and collectable items to be found in the game. Inventory items are added to the slots at the bottom of the screen, and these can then be used on relevant objects in the game window. Collectable items include pardon pieces, gold pieces and wanted posters. Collectable items are not added to the inventory, but can be viewed by selecting the journal at the bottom-right corner of the screen and selecting the progress tab.
  • Pardon pieces are important to collect as when a certain number have been found, a new character will be added to the band of merry men. Each new character that is added to the band brings along his own special ability; for example, persuasion or strength. These abilities can then be used to access new locations in the game or find collectable objects. For example, the arrow ability can be selected to fire an arrow at a picture, causing ten gold pieces to drop out.
  • The journal at the bottom-right corner of the screen has different tabs that can be selected. The tabs show the current quests, the progress for the amount of collectable items, the medals that have been awarded in the archery competitions, biographies of different characters that have been met in the game, and also a map of the area that shows the current location of Robin. Keep checking back on the journal as it is updated frequently as you progress through the game.
  • The area clear sign will appear when all inventory objects and collectables have been found, and all events have been completed. You may still need to move through these areas to get to other locations, but you will not have to do anything else in the areas that have been cleared.
  • The hint jar can be selected to reveal the location or the action that needs to be taken next. After all hints have been used, it takes 80 seconds before another hint is added to the jar. Finding five fireflies in the main scenes gives one hint, so find these fireflies to add hints to the jar at a faster rate.


Hidden Object Scenes

  • The aim in the hidden object scenes is to find all of the objects that are displayed on the buttons in the list window. There are five sets of buttons in the list window, and each set of buttons is normally stacked on top of other buttons. As an object on one set of buttons is found, a new button is normally revealed. Only the objects that are shown on the currently displayed list buttons can be found.
  • After finding all of the objects in a scene, certain objects from that scene will be added to the inventory. This walkthrough identifies all of the inventory objects in each scene. The remaining objects in the scene can vary from one game to the next, so these are not identified.
  • The hint jar can be selected to reveal the location of one of the hidden objects on the list. After all hints have been used, it takes 80 seconds before another hint is added to the jar.
  • There is no penalty for clicking too quickly or too many times in a scene.


Mini-Games

  • There are many varieties of mini-games to solve within the main game, with tasks that range from shooting lanterns in order to scare crows to more difficult mini-games where you may have to recreate a specific pattern of colors by swapping discs.
  • Some of the more difficult mini-games can be skipped after 45 seconds when the blue bar in the locket has become full. Easier mini-games generally do not have the skip option available. Sometimes it helps to look in the journal to see if a clue has been given to the solution of the mini-game.
  • The question mark icon can be selected at the top-left corner of the mini-game window to display the objective.
  • Click the X button at the top-right corner of the mini-game window to close the mini-game.
