Just completed this game - yay! Those final 4 coins were sneaky though!!

Nice to see a Dizzy game in a different style, although I am a bit of a Spectrum devotee.

Good game!

Have you found the bucket of salt yet? If not, then there are more puzzles to solve first.

Have you examined the log pile in the forest? That probably what's stopping you from progressing.

Has anyone checked if there's a bug in v1.2 of this excellently different little game? I found I was missing one coin, so gave it a go with simon's walkthrough above. When I get to the saltmines, there is no coin the 'deep in the saltmines' screen - just the bucket of salt, and a cake to eat. Also, all three of the 'saltmines' screens don't have an on-screen room-name in this version.

Help! So :hitwall: as I thought I'd managed to complete it all on my ownsome!

It's there for me. I tested it several times before releasing it. Can you email me your save game?
