General Tips

  • From the beginning of the game, you can choose between two modes: Normal or Advanced. Normal Mode is geared towards players seeking a more casual and entertaining experience, while Advanced Mode is geared towards players looking for a more challenging experience.
  • From the Options menu, you may choose screen ratio, sound ratio, and very importantly: you can choose to adjust the game for slower computers if yours is having trouble running it smoothly.
  • From the Extras menu, you can access bonus Collector’s Edition content.
  • Throughout the game, accomplishing various tasks will unlock additional Collector’s Edition bonus content. Completing the main quest adventure will reward you with an entire bonus adventure.
  • Once you’ve unlocked the Bonus Adventure, you can either choose to start it immediately from the end of the normal game, or access it again anytime via the Extras menu.
  • Tasks you should be trying to currently accomplish are shown throughout the game via the Tasks window in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Clicking on the Journal in the bottom right corner of the screen will recap important game and storyline events as you go. It also includes a map.
  • Use the Menu button at the bottom right corner of the screen to access the Options or Main Menu at any time during gameplay.
  • To the left of the Tasks menu in the bottom left corner of the screen is a Crystal symbol, with a color and number beneath it. This refers to who you’re currently trying to free, what color the Gems are you need to find, and how many you currently have.
  • Everytime you find a new inventory item, it will be added to the bar at the bottom of the screen. The newest or most recently updated inventory items will always appear furthest on the right.
  • Throughout the game you will have help from a companion: the Fairy, the Dragon, or both. Each possesses unique Abilities you can unlock and use to progress further in the game. These helpers also harbor the location of the Hint button. Hints are unlimited, but will require time to recharge after use. When you have both helpers, you can use two Hints back-to-back.
  • When playing a puzzle, the Hint button will become the Skip button. After a certain amount of time has passed, you may choose to skip a puzzle. All puzzles may eventually be skipped.
  • Throughout the guide below, KEY ITEMS are capitalized and outlined in red. Normal or randomized items or locations are outlined in blue. Circular outlines refer to an object directly out in the open, while a square outline requires you to zoom in or perform an action to acquire the item in question.
  • It should be noted that while this game is linear, you can complete many tasks and objectives, as well as acquire various items, in very different orders. The strategy guide below outlines one of the easier and more linear routes in regards to gameplay.
  • Due to the fact you can do things in this game in very different orders, make sure to use the “Ctrl+F” command if you need help finding a specific item in the guide below, i.e. “GREEN GEM”. Items in a series are numbered throughout the guide to help you keep track, i.e. “GREEN GEM 4/8″.
  • This particular strategy guide is tailored towards the Collector’s Edition of the game. As such, the Collector’s Edition bonus adventure content can be found and is featured exclusively in Chapter 6.
