PUZZLE HINTS The hints of each puzzle found in-game follow. These can be unlocked with a Hint Coin. Here are the hints in case you want them without spending the Hint Coins. I am not the author of these hints, I merely transcribed them. Other info: there are 170 Hint Coins in the game (according to ScurvyDerv). 001 Where's the Town? ------------------------------- 1. You can use the stylus for a whole lot more than just circling the answer, you know. Try tracing a path--any path-- to see if it connects to more than one town. Try it a few times until you are confident you have the right answer. Then just tap the submit icon. 2. Still stumped? Try tracing paths backward, so that you start from a village and work your way back. This will make it easy for you to see if any other towns are connected to the one you selected. 3. Just look for the town that's not connected to any other. In other words, any town that's connected to another can't possibly be the right answer. If you take a look at the map, you should be able to see any connections between towns with no trouble. 002 The Crank and Slot ------------------------------- 1. First, get a good, long look at the shape of the crank. How is the central axle shaped? Are the little protrusions around the edges of the crank triangular or square? Next, look at where those funny shapes stick out on the crank. Starting to make sense? 2. While you need to pay attention to the actual features of the crank and slot, you also need to remember that the shape of the slot is a mirror image of the crank. That's right, you have to stare at the crank straight on and then look for the slot that mirrors it. 3. The central axle on the crank has five sides. There are three shapes attached to the main axle, one triangle and two squares. One of the small squares sits right on top of one of the central axle's five corners, while the other two shapes sit flush on two sides of the axle. All right, now you have everything you need. Don't forget that you need to flip the crank's shape when searching for the slot! 003 Strange Hats ------------------------------- 1. Don't just pick an answer based on what you see on the screen. If this puzzle could be solved with a quick glance at the screen, it wouldn't be much of a puzzle, now would it? The human eye perceives vertical and horizontal length differently. 2. B is certainly not the hat you are looking for. 3. D isn't the right hat either. 004 Where's My House? ------------------------------- 1. To face the morning sun, one must, of course, look eastward. The map shows north pointing toward the top of the screen, so which direction indicates east? 2. The rising sun comes from the east. On this map, that means it comes from the right. Therefore, if you follow the directions, you should be facing to the right after you take your last turn. 3. Trying to follow the directions from each house only complicates matters. Instead, why not follow the directions in reverse? Needless to say, going backward means the directions you turn will reverse as well. Start by facing right, then head left down the road then take a left, then another left... 005 Digital Digits ------------------------------- 1. As mentioned earlier, this digital clock works on a 12-hour display system. This means you'll cycle through the numbers twice a day. Therefore, before you submit your answer, you need to double the number of times you found to account for a.m. and p.m. 2. You probably have already picked up on combinations like 1:11 and 2:22, but finding the less obvious combinations is what makes up the real meat of this problem. Did you for example, remember to include the time 10:00? 3. 12:22 is another combination that's easy to overlook. Also, have you thought about 11:12? Be sure to take a look at the various combinations that follow the above time as well. 006 Light Weight ------------------------------- 1. You're not weighing two sets of four weights on your first use of the scale, are you? If you do that, you'll only have one more chance left to determine which of four weights is the light one. But you probably already know that, right? 2. Maybe thinking about another example will help you out here. Imagine you have three weights, one of which is lighter than the rest. To find the light weight, all you gotta do is weigh any two of the three. If one of the weights on the scale is lighter, there's your answer. If the two weights on the scale are the same, the remaining weight is the light one. 3. Think about the last hint. You can figure out the light weight in a group of three with one use of the scale. If you can narrow the number of weights in question to three in one use of the scale, you've got your answer. 007 Wolves and Chicks ------------------------------- 1. Do you find yourself moving the raft back and forth only to end up with the animals back in the start position? Somewhere within your movements, you are doing something that restores the animals to their original positions. When you've found that point, try to do something different than you have thus far. It might bring you closer to the answer. 2. You don't necessarily have to take two animals over on every trip and then bring only one back. Sometimes you may want to bring two animals back. For starters, try getting all three of the wolves to the right side. Then you can slowly start swapping out wolves for chicks. 3. Let's recap the previous hint. First, get all the wolves to the right side of the river. Then, start swapping the wolves for chicks. When you start to have too few chicks on the left bank of the river, you can bring a chick back over with a wolf to keep your remaining chick from getting eaten. 008 Farm Work ------------------------------- 1. The two workers receive $100 for the job and divide it according to the amount of work each person did. In this case, "work" refers to the number of acres each person seeded. Read the puzzle again and think about exactly how much work each person did. 2. Since work refers to the number of acres each person seeded, the amount of time each person took isn't a factor in deciding payment. 3. Did you see the sentence that said that Roland and Alfred were assigned a 10-acre plot of land to work together and split it in half? What does that tell you about the amount of work each person did? 009 One Poor Pooch ------------------------------- 1. The original shape shows the dog walking. Think about how that shape will change after the dog gets hit by the car. 2. Dogs walk on all four legs, but since this poor pooch isn't doing much walking anymore, the position of his legs must have changed. 3. The dog is probably sprawled out on the pavement where it got hit. To show this, you'll need to move two of his legs, or two matches. Take the two legs in the middle and bring them above. 010 Alphabet ------------------------------- 1. Z isn't the answer. Though it might not seem like it, that's a very big hint. 2. The letter after P isn't Q. It's H. 3. Still nothing? Look at the title of this puzzle. It's all you really need to know. 011 Arc and Line ------------------------------- 1. Surely somebody must have looked at the diagram and realized that the triangle formed by points A, B, and C is a right triangle. That's sharp thinking and exactly right. However, are you sure there isn't a much easier way to find the answer? 2. You don't need the Pythagorean theorem to answer this one. Something else in the diagram should be the exact same length as AC. 3. Notice that diagonal line AC within the rectangle is the same size as the diagonal line BD. Have you also noticed that BD is also the same length as another part of this diagram? 012 Make a Rectangle ------------------------------- 1. The example shape that the puzzle shows you (Diagram 2) isn't at all indicative of the shape you're looking for. Think about a totally different shape you'd like to try. 2. The paper has a total area of 15 squares. Since you're trying to assemble the rectangle, the only dimensions possible are 3x5 squares or 5x3 squares. 3. Look for a piece that can help you complete a rectangle that's five squares tall. Now that you know the height of your rectangle, you should be able to narrow down your options a little. 013 Sinking Ship ------------------------------- 1. In 20 minutes, the raft can make two round-trips to the boat. Where is that boat located after two trips to the island and back? 2. After two round-trips, the raft returns to the ship. At this point, 18 minutes have passed, but since the ship hasn't sunk yet, there's no reason the raft can't pick up a few more pa
