I am trying to pick up the porcupine I wait until the 2 crabs are eating and cannot pick it up. There is a red circle with a line through it prohibiting me from picking it up. I have picked up all of the other items with no problem. What am I missing to trigger picking up the porcupine?

Grab a crab when they both turn their backs to eat. Get both of them and then take the porcupine.

Take the crabs first; then the porcupine is yours. Hold your breath, it's been there a few days.

The rusty nail was on the beach, under the bird's nest. (There is also something else that will do as a fishook; possibly even a third item.) There is also an alternate pole, and line! I haven't found another bait except the worms, though a raw oyster might work. Haven't tried that.

Curiously, there are alternate solutions to so many problems in this game. That's what makes it fun, and what will encourage me to replay it!

So that's where the nail was. I'll have to go back and replay. I think I'll have to hunt a bit more carefully next time.
Thanks Tally Ho

Think I am stuck.

Have been wandering around picking up inventory items, combining things as I think they should be, and using things were I think they should be. When I am at a complete loss I will peek at the WT.

One place I need a large bamboo stick to throw into a sulphur pool to scare away a monkey with a stick. Remember collecting at one point 3 sizes of bamboo. Not sure when but have used the large size at some place so now do not have. Went back to area where bamboo was collected but there seems to be no more there to obtain.

Does this mean you are out of luck at this point or have to go way back to a saved game and begin all over again?

The same thing has occurred with a plam frond. Evidently did not see it the first time, looked at a saved game and found the frond but can find no way to bring it up to current game I am playing.

Is there some way to avoid these kinds of situations? Or must one follow a WT item by item so as not to miss something?

There are alternatives to most of the puzzles, so I think you just need to find those. This is true for the palm frond. There are a lot of things around that can replace it. Try things in your inventory to see if they work.

The wt is just one sequence of doing the game.

I remember scaring that monkey with something other than that bamboo. Let me check if it is the slingshot.

You should have 2 of those large bamboos.

The slingshot didn't work but the snake in the cage did.

Yes, I remember collecting two large bamboos but have neither now. Seems as though I put them together to do something. And re the snake in the cage - dont think I can access that until the monkey with the stick is gone. Will check that out again. As I remember I have to get rid of that monkey and then get some invent. items one of which is a snake in a cage.

Back to the drawing board. smile

DL, do you have any food left? That might work.

I replayed this part earlier for the post above.
Face the monkey, turn right, get the cage.
Fix the cage.
Go to snake at other hot spring, use stick on snake, click cage on snake.
Go back to monkey with stick, click snake in cage on monkey.

Is a save possible in this game? I need one for the robot at the rock arch. I only have bow and arrow to use as I used the ammo for the gun in the cannon and it has been impossible to hit the darn thing in the right place. I need a save that will allow me to pick up the transformer and key. Thanks

Dutch, do you have a bow and arrow or a long gun in inventory?

I finally killed it. Wasn't easy. Now I am at the broken robot the letters were not VINU like it says in WT. So I cannot use the numbers there to turn all lights green. It is an impossible task as the numbers keep changing letters.So how do I get past this place?

Dutch,press 0 if the letters are not a part of the name nautilus. So, 1=N, 2=A, 3 or 7 for U, 4 for T, 5 for I, 6 for L and 7 for S.
It's not impossible at all, just remember if a letter pops up that isn't a part of nautilus, press the 0.
Good luck

Sue

Ok Texas Lady - do have food but it did not work. In fact I have to date 48 items in inventory and I tried everyone one on the monkey whether it was logical or not just in case - nothing worked.

And Mag - I have cage but neglected to fix it. Maybe that will get me the snake - had tried to put the snake in the cage but no luck. So again - back to the drawing board. smile
