I'm really stuck
I thought you already claimed your prize then. One is wings, one is that the valuables are indicated by blue fire and the last one I forgot.

It's supposed to be the wings, but they do not show. As I said earlier I went to the temple on the cliff and it only said "The wind blows quietly...". Do I need to do the element pieces first in order to get the wings? Because I can't find the fire element yet as I don't know where it is.

The Studious and Disillusioned medals in William and Sly don't resend, but all the others do. I'll send a PM to the author about those two.


See this news post for information on a program that does all kinds of neat things with medal statistics.

I don't quite know what's going on here, but here's what I remember...

The "wings" you speak of is actually an unlimited multi jump power. This is accomplished by finding all four blue critters (forgot what they were called), then returning to the third temple. Not really difficult, other than finding these guys in the first place. Personally I already found three of them before I reached the third temple.

The elements puzzle is the one I completed last. Its power is to grant you better item detection by making them throw out blue sparks everywhere, although you might not find items in caves under the disillusion spell. All pieces of the puzzle are found in chests.

I never succeeded in entering William's house. It's not needed for 100% completion.

This is the problem I have. I already found three pixies, but the one left is very high for a normal jump to reach. So how did you guys managed to do it? Is there like an invisible platform that you can jump from there or something?

That isn't a pixie, but a journal piece. I was confused by that too. Pixies are always in secret caverns. You can get to the journal piece after you get the unlimited jumping. Try searching in the cavern-like areas at the bottom of the map. They're often there. Look at my or Furryfox' map at the previous page and look if you've missed any secret caverns.

Note that you can't get to some of them, as you don't have the unlimited jumping ability yet.

Thanks for the help, man! I just found the fire amnhi and the last hidden pixie. It was in a part I had never been before since I even collected some mushrooms. Thanks again!

Beat me by 27 mins oh well.


Excuse me, I'm looking for a car that's been tricked out to look like an ice cream truck.

I don't think the "get to level 30" medal works in adventure story. It also doesn't unlock in-game.

All the medals worked just fine for me. If it didn't unlock in-game then you probably haven't met the requirements. You can find your experience level in the Equips screen. I'm at lvl 35 and I received the medal and it unlocked in-game somewhere along the way. If you are lvl 30+ and it didn't unlock in-game you should PM Matt about it, but I would double-check it first.

I checked, I'm level 30 now.
I'll go on for a while and see if it unlocks at 31 or 32.

Yup, although the medal description says you have to reach level 30, you have to get past level 30.

In other words, get to level 31

This one has its medals approved too. I don't know for how long already, but I'm pretty sure it's been a few weeks ago.

How can you get past this part? I've tried jumping towards it with full stamina and many other things, but nothing seems to work.

You can replay the last scene to get all the endings. The last ending you must use all the moves in this order: web, stink, sting, claw, bite.

You guys seriously never tried to run up to it and grab the ledge? Seems logical to me.

My bigger complaint is the controls though.

Aah, thank you. Mashing a spacebar to get up a ledge didn't pop up my mind.

Now I'm stuck on the next hurdle. Do you know how to jump far enough to grab the rope?

It looks like we got a great new game every day for the last four days:

December 27:

December 28:

December 29:

December 30:

I wonder if we'll get another really awesome game for New Year's Eve? Hey, maybe they'll decide to release Abobo early, at the stroke of midnight. I can hope, right? :P

Oh gawd another grinding game. I have yet to explore every aspect of story mode (looks like you may have to play it through at least 10 times to complete the "Quick reader" challenge) but Swarm mode by itself looks to be friggin ugly as hell.

5 Waves = 1 Round
3 Rounds = 1 Set
5 Sets = Level 1 in "Wow baby" challenge
5 Levels = Challenge complete

1 Play of Swarm1 = 6% in "Swarm fan" challenge
17? plays = Level 1 in "Swarm fan" challenge
5 Levels = Challenge complete

Nothing wrong with mowing down swarms of baddies from time to time, but with the way this game is executed, it gets old fast.

I dunno about the rest of you, but my desktop computer doesn't exactly run this fast after the first round, due to the sheer number of mobs or something. There's also enough green blood splatters to paint the floor black. lol

Anybody have any strategies on how to beat the final guy in Adventure Story? I've tried a buncha times, and for the life of me, I can't beat 'em. Any tips on what to do (like is there a certain armor/helmet/sword I should use? Should I use any magic? Any certain place to stand to avoid being hit, and the like)?

Thank you much. :)
