Seabeard is a building simulation from Hand Circus. In this game, you’ll rebuild and repopulate an abandoned town while exploring nearby islands, completing quests for villagers, and performing other tasks like fishing and item crafting. Gamezebo’s Seabeard Tips, Cheats and Strategies will help you get off to the right start as captain of your new destiny.

  • Movement: Moving only requires a single tap. Your character will go where you tap and will try to take the shortest route possible so long as your tap creates a green circle.
    • If you receive a red X upon tapping, it means your character cannot reach that location. Note: there are two exceptions to this. Sometimes an item you can remove, like a bush, is the only thing blocking the path. And sometimes you’ll receive a red X for no reason; this is just a bug in the current version. Tap somewhere nearby and your character should move.
    • To quickly travel across an island, drag the screen to where you want to go. Position the screen so the nearest entrance to it is just barely visible, then tap. The characters should teleport from their location to just at the entrance and walk directly to the desired location.
    • To zoom in or out, pinch with two fingers.
    • To rotate the screen and look at an area from a different angle, place two fingers on the screen and rotate them clockwise or counterclockwise.

    • Inventory management tips: Inventory space is extremely limited in the beginning of the game and makes it impossible to carry around everything you might find in a given day. Your initial inventory can only hold 20 items total: this includes same-type items. These items “stack” visually–3 milk will appear as 1 milk with a “3” on it–but they still take up the same amount of space. So those 3 milk take up 3 separate inventory spaces. To save space:
      • Leave items you find on the ground until you need them. If you pick up a bush and uncover a strawberry, you don’t have to pick up the strawberry right away. It will actually remain in that location for over a day–even if the bush respawns, the strawberry you previously uncovered will still be available in that spot. This is true for essentially everything you can “find”: fruit from trees, worms from bushes, vegetables on the farm, etc.
      • You can also leave crafted items in their location indefinitely. If you make a wooden plank but don’t have room for it or need it right away, leave it in the sawmill until you’re ready for it. This is also true for milk and eggs, which can stack–if you haven’t picked up the last batch of eggs but give the chickens more worms, the next eggs will just stack on top.
      • Once you build the Swap Shop, you can use it as a storehouse for clothing and furniture items. Just place your items “for sale,” but at a really high price. You can remove items from sale in the Swap Shop at any time, so if you want something back, just tap on it and take it off the market.

      • Build a warehouse as soon as possible. The architect’s plans for the warehouse should be available after you begin Emilia’s quests. The warehouse provides an extra 35 slots of storage space.
        • To build the warehouse, you’ll need 1,800 gold for the blueprint, 4 Stonefish, 4 planks (12 driftwood), 1 sawdust (3 driftwood), and 1 purple paint (2 grapes and 1 blue apple). The recipe for sawdust costs 100 gold and the recipe for purple paint costs 200 gold.
      • Best item to invest in early on: the inventory upgrade. If you want to spend some real money to make your life easier in the beginning, get the inventory upgrade as soon as possible for 50 pearls. You only start with 30 pearls and it’s unlikely you’ll earn 20 more anytime soon, so spending $1.99 on the 50 pearl pack is your best bet. We did not upgrade our inventory and played without spending any real money, so it is possible, but it’s a definite grind.

      • Fishing tips: Fishing is one of the first activities you’ll learn and the best way to make income for most of the early game. You’ll want to fish as often as possible and sell off fish at the fishmonger’s stall. Every island except your home island has fishing spots and fish respawn more quickly than foraged items (6 hours instead of 12), so you can catch quite a few fish in a day.
        • If it looks like a fish is about to get away or break your line, exit the mini-game. You can hit the red X in the upper right corner anytime while fishing to quit. This cancels your fishing attempt but the fish will remain in the water. You can cast and try to catch it again without any consequences. The fish’s attitude will change on each attempt, so if a fish was fighting a lot the first time you tried to catch him, he may be completely docile the second time.
        • Fish types are set once spawned. If you enter an area and there’s a Rubyfish in a certain location, even if you leave the island and return later, it will still be a Rubyfish. You need to catch the fish and let it respawn to get a different type. Because of this, if you’re hunting for Stonefish, it’s better to catch fish during the afternoon to give them a chance to respawn as Stonefish later that night.
        • Stonefish locations: Stonefish appear at night, which is after 8PM (your character will carry a lantern at night). We found Stonefish most often on the east side of Seadog Cove, the eastern side of Bullhorn Farm, sometimes the southern edge (near the dock) of Stonecutt Isle, and occasionally on the eastern beach of Larona Village (the only fishing spot in the village). Note: this was just our experience and Stonefish may spawn in other locations as well.

      • Sailing tips: The sailing mini-games can be played while traveling between islands for the price of one energy, or you can bypass them for no energy by using the airship. The benefit to playing a sailing mini-game is the opportunity to win otherwise hard-to-get items, including tree removers and dynamite.
        • You can refresh sailing mini-games without spending a pearl. If you’re trying to find a certain type or difficulty of mini-game, first check every available island. The games and difficulty level will vary between them. If none of them currently have what you’re looking for, travel to an island by airship and then exit back to your boat. Upon entering the sailing map, all the mini-games will refresh and you can check each island again.

        • During sailing challenges, your current lane is highlighted. There will be a lighter-colored streak that stretches the entire length ahead of you. This makes it easier to tell what obstacles coming up are in your current lane (if they are in the highlighted area) and is especially helpful on curves.
        • You don’t have to wait until you’ve moved over a lane to move back. If you accidentally swipe in the wrong direction, you can immediately correct this by swiping the other direction. Your boat won’t move entirely into the new lane–it will be somewhat between lanes. It’s best to practice this type of movement on Easy sailing stages to get a feel for it.
        • The red bar in the upper right corner is your current speed. A full red bar means you’re at max speed.
        • You can use two fingers on sailing mini-games. So for challenges like Feeding Frenzy and Tentacle Terror, where you might need to shoot at multiple items at once, you can tap on two areas simultaneously to save time.
        • Different mini-games award different challenges. Some items, like root remover, you can get randomly from any Medium or Hard difficulty mini-game. But other items are game-specific. The following games award these items at the Easy and Medium difficulties if you win first place:
          • Feeding Frenzy: Narwhal Horn, Whale Tooth
          • Tentacle Terror: Tentacle, Sea Salt
          • Fast Lane: Champion Lobster, Trophruit
          • Target Practice: Screw, Reinforced Wood Piece
          • Dangerous Waters: Wooden Spike, Spiked Fruit
          • Slalom: Slalom Pole, Partyfish
          • Note: we’ve also won a pearl from Fast Lane Medium difficulty. This may be a reward available from other games, but we’ve only won it that one time.

      • Money-making tips: Making money in the early game is difficult. The fastest way to earn money is to catch and sell fish, and to complete as many inexpensive quests as possible.
        • Stock the fishmonger as often as possible. As soon as you receive a notification that a fish has sold, return and restock. Focus on Golden Pike (the orange fish) but supplement with Rubyfish (red ones) as necessary. If you find Stonefish, try to save them for construction projects since they’re so much harder to find.
        • Don’t complete expensive quests. There’s no disadvantage to turning down a quest except forfeiting its reward. If someone asks you to buy new clothes, refuse. They will usually give you very little gold (5-10) while the cheapest clothing item you can buy will cost at least 60. Focus on quests that pay more than they cost.
        • You don’t have to complete quests you accepted. If you accept a quest but realize its reward is not worth the effort, just leave it alone. Although you can’t quit a quest, it will time out and go away after 12 hours.

        • Check in at the Larona Village town hall for rewards. The yellow booth behind the mayor’s desk will sparkle when you have a reward available. These are given out for achievements like catching 10 fish, building 2 trader’s homes, etc. The rewards are usually coins or pearls.
        • Don’t worry about the food stall too early on. The food stall can help you make money, but it takes a significant investment to get there. You need to not only buy the stall, but also buy and build another trader’s house. Then, to have anything valuable to sell, you’ll need to learn cooking recipes which also cost money. You won’t see a return on the food trader for quite awhile, so if you need money in the short term, just ignore it.
        • Play sailing mini-games before quitting for awhile. If you win first place, it’s a free item that you can sell. If not, you’ll at least get a few coins. If you’re about to quit playing for a few hours, use up your sailing energy to get these rewards. Focus on Fast Lane and Feeding Frenzy, as those provide rewards you can sell at the Fishmonger’s stall.

      • General tips: 8PM is when nighttime begins. It ends at 6AM. These are the effects in the early islands:
        • Stonefish begin appearing.
        • The farm closes. You cannot pick vegetables, or feed the chickens or cows.
        • Smuggling quests are available, but they’re still random and may not appear.
        • It’s dark, and some challenges may be slightly more difficult (like Dangerous Waters, it’s harder to see the hazards).
      • Smuggling quests can be failed. This isn’t super transparent since all the other sailing mini-games still award you “bronze” for most scores. If you are caught by the searchlights three or more times in a smuggling run, you will fail the quest.

      • Don’t worry about opening the boat shop on Seadog Cove until you reach level 6. You can’t buy any new boats until Captain level 6. You can buy decorative figureheads, but these don’t provide any benefit except beauty.
      • Tap on a quest from your quest list to be guided to that quest giver. Your last-tapped quest will be the quest bubble that is displayed on your map.

    • Use the Crafting inventory. This is a really helpful feature that shows you which items have finished crafting (also visible on the island map), as well as what ingredients are needed for all of the recipes you currently know. To reach it, just click the menu icon in the upper-left corner and select “Crafting.”
    • When searching for quests, don’t forget characters indoors. There are a handful of NPCs that award quests but never leave the building they’re in, such as the maître d’ at the restaurant on Larona Village.
