I love this game! However there are some pretty bad moments when I could have just taken a hammer and smashed the computer to pieces. But I eventually I finished it and boy was I satisfied. So here's help for some areas of the game where I got stuck and a lot of other people too :) Also look closely at the screenshots to see the exit cursor if youre stuck and need to find an exit point.
To find Glass's Palace
You have to go to south from the oracle and then west. Eventually you will find a tower-like structure that needs to be opened with one of your keys. This was my first major stumbling block that had me going crazy just to find the path that led to the palace.
How to Ring the Damn Bell!!!
First remember the code that the old man taught you in the tavern. Ring it 3 times in succession. Then pause for a second. Next ring it twice then pause again. Finally ring it once more and the gates will open. Okay, the trick here is when after you ring the bell and start to pause, look at David's and see whether he nods his head. If he nods then youre on the right track. If not then adjust your timing on the ringing part and you will succeed eventually.
How to kill the Green Dragon
If you don't have the lightning orb then you can't just hit it directly and damage it. At least that's what I got from other people. The way to kill it without using lightning is to wait for it to stop then shoot at it from underneath. You can usually get 2 shots at it this way before it comes crashing down on you. The trick to get out of the way is to defend or backout(ctrl-right click).
To find the Lighning Orb
You have to talk to the wiseman in the monastery. The way to find him is through the left exit in the main building which I thought was extremely well hidden. Incidently this was my 2nd stumbling block that prevented me from finishing the game.
To open the Sluice Gates
There are a lot of people asking how to open the sewer gates and there
are some that just can't open the gates just by ringing the bell. I managed to
open them on my first try :). To those that don't know how to open them, you
need to shoot at the bell with some sort of weapon eg slingshot, magic etc. To
those that just can't open the gates even after shooting them
well......... here are my saved games. I've checked them out and they all
work to open the gates. 13.sav is the one where I haven't got the lightning orb
and have not open the gates yet! Just go to the rebel camp and talk to Ben and
Fat Bob then go to the tavern and talk to inkeeper then proceed down to the
sewers and open the gates by shooting at it. 14.sav is the one where I have done
all of the above and have even opened the gates. That's all that I can do at the
moment on this problem. Hope it helps.
Without further ado
To find the acid orb
The acid orb can be found in the sewers. It is guarded by the "Rat King" or some other monster :). Follow the screens below to get to him.
To find the Enemy Barracks
The enemy barracks can be only after you have drained away the flood to the sewers. Go back to the place where you saw the boatman. Then scroll the screen rightwards and you should come upon 2 exits with one leading to the barracks.
How to find the "little boy" that needs the teddy
First you need to defeat Fuge. After deafeating him follow the screens below and you will get to him. Now equip the T.Bear and he will take it from you. After giving him the T.Bear then go back to the rebel camp to collect your reward which is quite useful by the way. (Note that you do not need to complete this quest to win the game)
To defeat the final boss
This is the toughest challenge yet. However I was to fed-up at having to defeat the wizard time and time again just to set-up another match with the end boss. So I've posted some of the battle tactics that should help you defeat him. Have fun and enjoy the ending.
You need to use the falcon magic on it as it is going to land. This will do some major damage. Then hack'n'slash. As he flies away to shoot fireballs at you face him and hit defend (ctrl-rightclick). One of the fireballs will eventually be deflected and hit him for some damage. Repeat until "it" dies.
I think that I have covered most of the problems that you will face in the game cept the bell not opening the sluice gates when you ring it. I have totally no clue as to why some of you can't open it sorry :(
