I found one of the secrets so far!!

[Post New]by mouseclick2 on Jun 18, 13 2:28 AM
I remember playing Sparkle back in 2005. Back then finding all the secrets was quite captivating since you had to be very curious about every aspect of the game and I mean every aspect. I was doodling around and found the first one. It's no fun telling quite yet, but perhaps this discussion can be where we can talk about our findings if players need a hint and such. I know I will be needing help from others too!

I just stumbled over a "second secret". Keep using your mouse in unsuspecting places. I am remembering back now to the first Sparkle as to how and where the secrets were kept and what to do. By the way, when you do trigger a secret, a page will suddenly appear that describes the secret that you just uncovered.

FOUND 1 of the SECRETS??

I've got to say that I'm confused as to what you're talking about; are you talking about the key, hand, etc. (of which I've got 2 and almost 3 of the 5) or something else?

I sure would like to be enlightened because I'm seriously NOT thinking of using one of game coupons on this game as it appears to be EXTREMELY short -- there's 5 things to get and I've already gotten 2 of them!?!

I would really appreciate it if you would share the secrets. I have searched the internet for help with the secrets but there is none. So, please, can you share? Thanks.

Welcome to the pond, amf57

Sparkle 2 is pretty new so I'm not surprised that there's not much out there yet on the secrets. If you meant the secrets in the original Sparkle game, check that game's forum on this site as the secrets for that were posted there.

MEnr56, there are Easter eggs to find if you click in certain spots. This is also true of the original Sparkle, but you won't get powerups for finding them like in the first game. The keys that you are referring to are just part of the adventure mode/storyline. There are challenge and survival modes to play in that will unlock if you play the adventure mode long enough.

*SPOILER ALERT* Here are the 7 secrets I've found so far (click and drag below to read)

#1 Home for Butterflies: click on the orb slinger in the opening screen until all the butterflies end up in the middle of the slinger

#2 Survival Count: after unlocking all the survival levels, click on them one by one all the way down the list

#3 Friend in the Pond: click on the pond near the left of the map until you get the secret

#4 Secret of the Tower: after reaching the tower once, return to it later and click on it

#5 Volcano Extinguisher: click on the flames on top of both volcanoes in the map screen

#6 Nothing at All: after unlocking all four slots for enchantments and having at least 2 in the last set of enchantments enabled, remove all the enchantments from the orb slinger

#7 12th Time is the Charm: after getting the 12x chain achievement, click on it 12 times


Enjoy!

I've found 2 secrets so far, but it seems that they're different than in Sparkle 1 - which is a good thing, IMHO.

Thanks SynthpopAddict
Another one not listed (and same method to hide spoiler):

Go and look several times in a row at the "Credit" window.

(I only had 5 of the ones you listed)

Welcome to the pond, Ubu

Thank you for posting that one. I stumbled across that last night myself, but now I know that there are at least 2 other secrets that I have to discover as that one is #10.

Haven't found any more secrets

Whenever I start the game on my current profile, the Book of Challenges automatically opens, so I'm guessing that there has to be an undiscovered secret there as I found ones in all the other books. But I am out of ideas as to what to do. Have tried clicking on all the thumbnails, all the larger pictures on the right, drawing patterns in the thumbnails, replaying all the boards, clicking on the progress tube at various times (empty, partially filled, while filling, full tube, clicking on bubbles). Also tried matching up pairs or opposites based on track shape or board names...anyone have any other ideas?

I am also wondering if there are secrets in the options or player profile pages but am out of ideas for what else to try there too.

What is a progress tube? What is a thumbnail? What pictures? Bubbles? There are bubbles?

I'm sorry but I have no idea what you fishies are talking about.

Welcome to the pond!

I'm guessing you have a phone or tablet version of this game as the PC version I've got doesn't have the Hard or Nightmare modes (too bad because I would have liked to play them). So, what's the 9th secret you've found, as I can't figure out secrets #8 or #9 myself and am starting to wonder if maybe a couple of them are broken in my version of the game because I think I've pretty much tried everything and my carpal tunnel is killing me?

A huge thank you to Jaakko at 10tons, who is an awesome CS rep for looking all the secrets up in the game code...you rock!!! Would have never guessed those two secrets I was missing in a million years without your help.

I still can't figure out how to do #9 but have a few guesses. If anyone has done it, would be much appreciated if you share! [click and drag below to read]

Secret #8 is Lucky Lottery - after you've won these on the achievements screen, click on the 5S quick powerups collected, 24x chain, 100 pushers, and 4 hours played achievements in that order.

Secret #9 is Yellow Mud Toad Magic Paint "you have discovered that not all pages should be read". Even Jaakko doesn't know what this means. I'm guessing this might be either clicking fast enough through the glowing artifact (it's yellow, sits in a swamp, and looks like a toadstool) the first time you get there so that none of the text appears and you get the key ASAP, or doing this on a revisit so you get none of the text. Going back and revisiting all the checkpoints except the glowing artifact didn't work. So far I've tried several times to get through the glowing artifact screen without any text showing up, but I always get about a half second of it no matter how fast I click. Or else maybe trying to skip over that checkpoint altogether when going through the game the first time, but that would mean I've already blown it on my latest run through the game and all my previous ones too LOL.

Anyone figured out how to do #9 yet? I still can't get it.
