    So having finished the JPN release of this fine game, I am quite famililar with the parts that people will get stumped/stuck on. Instead of flooding the board with topics, please use this thread.
    I meant to make one for Tingle too but forgot heh.

    That kind of defeats the purpose of our forum but yeah, as this game is bound to cause lots of problems please read this, or at least look at it first: http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/932377/48979
    I actually had some input into that faq when we were all playing the JPN release of the game. Theres absolutly nothing missing from it so please use it people, if you must of course.

    When i lock on to an enemy by tapping on them from far away, theres a small delay after i hit them with my sword... is that normally supposed to happen? [​IMG]

    edit: n/m, just watched some gameplay vids on youtube and it happens there too.

    Will I miss any secrets or items if I just try to play on my own?

    I don't think it's possible to miss anything in the game, bearing in mind I finished the JPN release without doing any side quests or optional fishing.

    So if there's some side quests, it will be obvious enough? And I hope I don't need to keep going back somewhere that does not have anything to do with the story to get some secret item or something. And will I get anything for fishing?

    The only place you return to a few times is the fairy pool to upgrade one of 3 traits. I can't say more without spoiling it and the sidequests are all obvious providing you talk to all the NPCs all the time.
    This game is Zelda Lite imo, it's not an epic Zelda at all, very dumbed down and very easy.. the only time you should get stuck is from bad stylus drawing on certain puzzles.
    Fishing is for gold and certain items that you use at the fairy pool. I think you may get something special once you fish the very last spot though I'm not 100% on that as I didn't bother.

    OK, thanks. I'm just making sure that a straightforward guy like me won't miss anything important. [​IMG]

    can anyone help me with this riddle?

    it steers with rudder then makes spray! and third it paddles then sees a way!

    i'm stuck on a island with 5 statues on a island that has no map, when i hit one of the stones in the middle it says this riddle and i have no idea what it's talking about, it says i have to hit the stones in order but the riddle doesn't given any clues or make any sense at all.

    Ugh, performing a somersault with the stylus is a bitch.

    Hope I don't have to use that shit anywhere in the game or perform any other near impossible moves on the touch screen later... [​IMG]

    Any tips on performing somersaults? I know I'm supposed to draw little circles on the edge of my screen but... ugh-ity. [​IMG]

    isnt that the whale island?

    you have to read the stones in a certain order, tail, blowhole, fins, eyes iirc

    i cant play it, cause my ds is at nintendo to be fixxored

    edit: it might be fins, blowhole, tail and eyes, not sure

    yeah i solved it, you have to go over the whole island and draw out a whale, then, go to the tail point (rudder), then go to the spurting water part (spray) and then the fins part (paddle) and then the eye (sees a way)

    i had a problem with this too, what you need to do is to keep the stylus near the edge of the screen to keep link running then make a quick very small circle, do it fast and promt and he should do a roll, i'm still having problems with it as i am used to button preses and doing a roll the old fashioned way, but i am getting better at it.
