Frantic Franko Demo walkthrough
« on: 28 Jun 2009, 16:19 »
I'm posting a complete walkthrough for the game. You can also ask me for hints. I would certainly like players to figure the game on their own, or as much as possible, so don't give up easily.

Getting Started

Spoiler: ShowHide

- try a random action with the verbcoin on a random hotspot except on Franko and his axe
- click on Franko
- click on Franko again, you'll get the tying & untying skill
- in the inventory open the bag with  the tying & untying skill
- smell the Smell-Me-First Manual for instructions how to use the bag's items
- use the flag on the flying man to get a conversation started

The Puddle Quest && The Cactus

Spoiler: ShowHide

- choose moustache as the method of talking to the old man
- talk with him about everything until he flies away
- (bonus)combine flag and polish and use this in the fire to create a torch
- go right to a new location
- inspect the puddle, try using items on it, for example the torch if you have it
- start a conversation with the old man using one of the items from the bag
- the wind has blown something into Franko's nose - you'll have to get it out, or he'll be complaining
- click on Franko, he'll produce a bone
- click on the bone to take it
- (bonus) use the stamp on the bone to create a new way to talk with characters - The Bone Death Paean
- carve the bone with the axe
- choose the nose icon over the sharpened bone, you'll get a seed covered in snot
- go back to the location with the fire
- put the seed in the mutilated ground
- go up and high up you'll find a hotspot for the foliage
- throw axe at the foliage
- a peyote cactus will grow from the seed, cut it with the axe
- go to the puddle location
- try to bite the cactus
- in the new location smell the only hotspot available
- talk to the moon-thing by.... choosing the mouth icon over it
- to get back to the real world, tell the moon something about his face

Getting the Baloons Method 1

Spoiler: ShowHide

- use the jar on the old man
- talk until he puts up a darth shooting contest
- you can take a break from the contest any time by again using the jar on the man
- try throwing a darth at the head
- try talking to the head using the bag of junk items
- put a darth in the mouth
- spit a darth at the head
- use stamp on the head
- spit a darth at the head
- try using the axe on the line
- use the pig on the man (or choose it during conversation)
- spit the last darth at the head - you won't win, but you'll get the baloons anyway

Getting the Baloons Method 2

Spoiler: ShowHide

- in the campsite location click on Franko until he starts jumping
- if the darth contest is on, use the jar on  the man and tell him you need a break
- when the baloon man is close to the fire, throw some polish in the fire
- quickly click on Franko to jump and retrieve the baloons

Flying up to the Moon

Spoiler: ShowHide

- go to the puddle location and use baloons on Franko
- use the flying skill on the moon - but Franko is afraid to without some kind of safety device
- click on baloons and go to the other location
- stoke the rubber chicken with the sharpened bone
- put the chicken in the fire, you'll get some goo in effect
- the goo needs molding and there are two methods to do that
- (method1) use the jar on the goo
- (method 2) cut the sharpened bone with the axe and then use the goo on it
- go to the puddle location
- use the gooey cord on the tree, then on Franko, then attach the baloons to Franko again
- fly up to the moon
- too bad that Franko can't reach the moon, or can he?
- take a bite of the peyote cactus
- enjoy the end cutscene and a teaser of things to come

Could you please move that old man? It was next to impossible to reach the cactus hotspot

If you start moving Franko on the old man - sort of pushing on him - Franko will tell him to get out of the way. But you're right he sometimes gets in the way anyway.


Spoiler: ShowHide
Most of the time the man does follow you. If you start the darths contest and then tell the man you need a break, he'll be following you for sure and you can easily get him out of the way to the hotspot
