Playing Hard Mode and Receiving the Crown.

[Post New]by MargieB on Feb 24, 11 4:17 AM
Good Morning Fishies,

I know there are a couple of threads regarding this topic but wanted to post a separate thread so the information remains on top. I will ask a mod to sticky this thread later.

Just want to clarify about Hard Mode and the Crown.

You start the game by playing in Regular Mode by default. Once you complete Regular Mode you will receive the Golden Crown at the end of the game.

You must go back to the Main Menu after you complete the game and click on "PLay". Make sure that you see the words "Hard Mode" (written in red I believe) above the word "Play"

You should see the Golden Crown in your inventory.

You should also see a " lock" in place of the hint button in the lower left.This locks the hints and skips in the game.

The Hard Mode info is integrated into the strategy guide with the words "SPOILER ALERT FOR HARD MODE" on top and 'END OF SPOILER ALERT" at the end of that section so that people playing in Regular Mode do not receive spoilers.

Hope this helps, please let us know if anything else is unclear.

Thanks,

MargieB

Thanks MargieB for the great info!

I'm just swimming by to sticky this thread so that it'll stay up top in the Forum and be easier for everyone to find.

Happy gaming everyone!

How can I complete the game in any mode without the crown, it presumably opens the gate underneath.

I have been reading the strategy guide umpteen times and the first mention of the crown is when you are putting it on the frogs head, didn't tell you where to find it so I back tracked and looked in every nook and cranny and then came here.

The crown is given to you once you complete the game, you don't need it for the first time through.

Hi MargieB...

So, are you telling us that while playing the easy mode, we don´t have to worry about finding the crown? And does that mean that if I don´t want to play the hard mode, I will never discover what will happen after I give the crown to the frog nor will I be able to go to a different, until then, undiscovered area?

Hey Valdy,

That is correct, you do not need the crown when playing the original mode, it will be automatically given to you once you complete the game.

You have to play Hard Mode if you want to go into 2 undiscovered areas in the game.

Hope that helps.

Oooh... that´s sneaky. LOL Thank you very much for answering my question.

But I am assuming this has nothing to do with the bonus game, which we can play right after the main game is completed? And I would then start the game again in hard mode after finishing the bonus game? Sorry for sounding so daft, but I just want to make sure that the hard mode is not actually the bonus game - seeing that there are other areas to discover.

Hey Valdy,

The Bonus Round has nothing to do with Hard Mode. As soon as you finish the game you can start on the Bonus Game or play Hard Mode, whichever you choose.

Good luck!

As far as I can see there is no mention of any "Spoiler Alert" when the SG talks about the crown. This is still very confusing to me because I still remain stuck in Chapt. 4. By the way, the SG is really written very well. I would rather have a walkthrough.

I did finish the regular mode but I still didn't get the crown and neither did the hard mode become activated. Is there something I'm missing?
