Wow - I can't believe that I was playing this 5 years ago! And it seems I was pretty au fait with the game back then, but I am afraid I have very little memory of playing the game or the puzzles and I don't keep notes, so I am sorry but it appears that "Froggie's Help Swamp" has dried up. :embarassed:

I'm having trouble remembering ..and I wrote the game. I have vague memories of putting Gobolino the cat on a ledge halfway down the side of a castle and you need to give her the opened can of tuna. I think the translation book is for the mushrooms.

From what i've noted that monkey wants what all monkey's want a..... banana and the translation bk is used on the guy at the monolith - hope it helps cause it's a neat game

BAD GRANDAD - no notes :say_no:

The problem is that monolith maze. I presume there's something at the centre of it but I can't work out how you get to it.

You have to go pick up the hat that blew onto the monolith ledge

I've already done that but I meant I can't work out where to go once I get inside. I just spend forever going through different doorways getting nowhere.

I can't really remember, but I think there's a puzzle somewhere that shows you a map of the labyrinth, or maybe marks the doors or something. Until you've done that the labyrinth is unpassable.

(I think - I really can't remember the game very well)

From earlier hints in the thread, I think Noggin is right, and it seems from my earlier, knowleggable (!) posts, it has to do with the rising sun rhyme. I gave loads of hints about that previously.
