It seems as though a few medals don't work. The 5 pointer for getting one piece of the eye, and kill 100 ships for sure. The only one I got that actually popped up was for saving 5000 gold coins. Not sure if that's just on my end or not, but figured I'd give a heads up.

Same happened to me - I also should have earned those medals but didn't get them, which is unfortunate. The game itself is still great though - I will wait until the issue with the medals has been solved.

A little, hopefully helpful hint if your struggling with this game. Since this game has NO tutorial, some of you may not be aware. That you actually have a super helpful one-off super save, for when you get in a bit of trouble and those balls seems out of control, just click the left mouse button, remember you only get 1 of these saves. But it pushes all the balls that are on the screen at the time, back up off the top of the screen, buying you some much needed time.

Honestly you guys will probably fly through this game in 10 to 15 minutes. But I'm old and frail and got so pissed off when I died with 119 seconds gone. I will get back to this later.

The authors of this game have now made getting the medals for finding the items easier/more accessible. They've changed the locations of some of the items to make it easier to get the medals. So far I have all of them, except Salad Fingers rusty spoons. Could someone help me find the last one?

Here are the locations that I have found the spoons so far (there are 5 in all to find):
One: Pico's level under the generator/character switch thing he was in; you have to use Dad to break some blocks to get it.
Two: Bitey's level in the middle of the forest (obvious location; anyone can see).
Three: Salad Finger's own level. It's in the middle of the level easily accessible once you get Salad Fingers.
Four: In the gold level, you once again use Dad to break some blocks under you when you first start the level to get the spoon.

If someone could let me know where the 5th one is, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, the medal for completion (defeating P-bot) is still broken btw.

It was in a pit in the first level before you rescued anyone. Only problem I have with this is that I have no clue how to access the first level.

Like I said, they changed the locations of some of the items. I looked in the pit for it, and it was no longer there. Thanks for remembering that tho.

If anyone does find the location of the last spoon, let me know, here or PM. I listed the ones I found in an above post, I just need the last one.

Yep, none of 'em seem to work (aside from the 5000 gold coin medal) as I just defeated the Kraken, and nada.

Another tip for Bounce Up Balls:

When your ball is touching the red zone, it still has an apparent "velocity" based on how high your mouse cursor is. So if you hold the cursor at the very top of the red zone, you'll bounce things much higher, even though your ball doesn't appear to be moving.

Also, if a ball slips by, moving down to save it can sometimes tip the balance of the game against you. Try to stay on top of things and let a ball slide here or there without plunging to rescue it (especially after 60 seconds).

It's also worth noting that the no deaths medal and the "beat the game" medal have had their point values increased.

Okay, in the game Pirateers, how do you get the golden treasures? They're the chests you find on the islands, correct? Reason I ask, is because I must've found more than 10 so far, but the stats screen only register 8. Am I doing something wrong here? Because I don't wanna fight the Kraken, because I think that'll reset the game and I'd have to start all over finding those damn chests again.

I think I know what the problem in your case is. It doesn't count the Golden Treasures that you get via those quests, only the ones that you find with the maps that destroyed ships drop. The symbol must be green to count, red one is quest related and doesn't count. And yes, you better get those treasures before the Kraken, because the game froze for me after I beat the boss. I also like that my current level icon is a pirate sword :3

Wow. These guys just can't get it right. They made it from getting all collectables being impossible, to making getting Pico impossible.

I thought it was just me, but this game seems to have problems. Has anybody finished it? If so, can you give me some help?

Yep, that was the problem, not the quest, but rather finding the treasure map. Thanks very much for the assist. :)

Not sure if I really want to do the 9000 medal. It is asking for at least an hour of great performance. I might make an attempt at it, though I want to make sure that it isn't bastard hard first.

Fortunately, this game saves the solution you used! It's one of those things that kinda doesn't make sense in real life, but makes complete sense in a video game.

Wow, it's a hunk of meat that goes there? That wasn't even on my radar as a possibility, since all previous evidence had shown that movable blocks travel over your tools rather than being impeded by them. Weird.

Thanks.

All sent. The Bear of Love secret medal is a 100 pt medal. Easy points, if you know what to do.
