CHAPTER 14: 13 GEMS TO FIND (5 MAIN STREET/ 4 TUTTI FRUTTI/ 4 MAIN GATE)
MAIN STREET GEMS
LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN
RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN
TUTTI FRUTTI GEMS
MAIN GATE GEMS
The goal here is to place objects on the pillars that are located on the main gate that add up to the weight specified on each pillar. For example, place a doll on the pillar marked 93. If that item is correct you will see the following message:
The object that I placed here keeps the post exactly on the number mark of the post" and you have to do this for each pillar.
There are 2 ways to achieve this:
1. I recommend the following method: Just put into inventory all the pieces you can find( toys, books and assortment of fruits)
**stay away from the weights for this method**
Go back to the main gate and start placing objects on the pillars until you read the message I printed above.
2- The 2nd method is to pick up all the weights and place them on the scale that is located in the Tutti Frutti area.
You have to put the right amount of weights that add up to the # on each pillar. For example for pillar # 36, place the weights that add up to that number on the left side of the scale (it could be 3 or 4 weights). On the right side of the scale put for example the doll. If the scales balance out then the doll goes on pillar #36. This method can be extremely time consuming and it takes longer to find all the weights and they fill up your inventory too quickly
The puzzle changes every time you play it but here are some items that worked for me on different occasions:
**Don't forget the get the gems in Tutti Frutti and the Main Gate**
Once you get all the pillars exit to the next level
