Tales of Jayvin

After playing this for over 14 hours, I'm finally at the point of needing help :D

Spoiler: ShowHide

I closed all the portals and got all the characters. My starting character is on level 10 with 3 skills and I have the completed crown, including the diamonds. He is nowhere near ready to slay the monster on the mountain. What is the recommended level to even try the boss fight? I could keep training him and try again every few levels but that would be very expensive in terms of potions and shields and take a LOAD of time...


As far as outstanding quests:
Spoiler: ShowHide

I have the barman quest. He said he left you the key. I assume that's the building to the left of the bar/casino where there are barrels in a grid blocking a key. I have NO idea what to do there. There is no way to know which barrels move and in which direction and I've sunk a lot of time into this one.

I have the apple farm quest. The apples fall WAY too fast to catch them so I slowed down the framerate to a point where I can actually catch each apple. But the task STILL fails! It seems that sometimes catching an apple will actually deplete lives. How is this one to be played?

I have no idea how to fish. The instructions from the guy at the lake are pretty vague. I see the bullseye and a timer. I've tried randomly mashing enter but I've yet to catch a fish. Is this an important part of the game? What is the objective here?

I've only completed 55% of the game so I am hoping that completing some of these quests will open new quests to play...

Hi, Shadow1000.

Glad to hear you are progressing well in the game.
Let me see if I can be of assistance here.
I will answer you second batch of questions, first.  (laugh)
Spoiler: ShowHide
For the barrels in the Bar cellar do them in this way...
Second Barrel, Push left. Move down... Push barrel Left. Move down... Push Barrel Left. Move down... Push Barrel Down. Move Right... Push Barrel Up.
Move Right... Push Barrel Down. Move Right... Push Barrel Right. Move Down... Push Barrel Right. Move Down... Push Barrel Left. Move Down... Get Key.

To get out...
Move all the way up and Push barrel up. Move Left... Push Barrel Up... And exit.

Now For The Apple Quest.
-----------------------------
Catch only the red and green apples. Red apples give you a life. Brown apples take away a life. Allowing red or green apples to hit the ground will also take a life.

The Fishing Game.
--------------------
What you must do here is to Hold Enter so that the bar in the target moves withing the coloured areas and then release Enter key.
If you get a good Hit... Red is the best... You will catch the fish quicker.
You can catch a cooking fish that you can eat at your house.
There is also a quest linked with the Fishing game, which you will be given by Jen, at her store.
Also... By becoming a skilled fisherman and obtaining a high score will give you a completion percentage at the end of the game.

Completing Quests
---------------------
Not all quests, when completed,  will open new ones. However, there are one or two that will.
As far as I remember there are about 14 or 15 quests. :-D

Thanks for the solution. I am wondering HOW players were supposed to solve that? Short of mapping out each barrel and jotting down which directions it moves and restarting over and over.

I can't tell visually which apples are which colour. I wish I had known that this was a requirement for this quest before spending all that time :( Does this quest lead to another quest or is it just the 250 coins? If it's just the money then I'll pass

May I ask why?
Are you, by any chance, unable to see certain colours correctly?

Correct. Red/green

Ah... That makes sense. (laugh)
Sorry about that. Not much I can do about the colour of the apples.
Mind you... If you can see brown then just catch everything that isn't brown. :-D
Meant to say... Allowing brown apples to hit the ground will not take a life.

I think you will find that you will miss out on 5% of the completion percentage if you choose to skip this quest.

Red and green are indistinguishable; I can't identify which one is brown, although it would look different. Hard to explain :)

I think I know what you mean... It must be a little like looking at colours through those old 3d glasses. :-D
Obviously not that bad but... maybe you know what I mean... or not. (laugh)

Anyway... Bloody typical that we made a section that you can't play. (laugh)

Spoiler: ShowHide
The end creature is, if I remember correctly, Level 35.
You will need to be around level 10 to complete the "Barman Quest". and In the Casino you will need to be around Level 20.
Another point I would like to make is... You don't always need a lorry load of shields. One of our testers completed the game twice before we even added shields.

Fighting in the cave leveled my character up to level 20! One problem I'm having in the cave is that I got barrel #9 and I "heard something". I assumed that opened the locked door on the top right of the maze but that wasn't it. I burnt through 11 batteries wandering the maze seeing if there is a new open area or a key or something to no avail. What do I do now?

I caught a bunch of fish! Fun addition to the game! :) it was pretty exciting once I figured out what I'm doing. Not difficult at all.

I tried the apples one more time. It's just not going to happen...I really can't figure out what apple is what colour :(

The only way to not use shields is by LOADING up on arousal/deelectric/decalcify and so on.

  • Regarding the cave dungeon when Jayvin say "I heard something" you should return to that corridor where there is the locked door you mentioned. Now you must walk to the left side til the end of that corridor and then you will meet the Troll boss!

  • Regarding the fishing game I am much glad to hear that you like it! Please keep it in mind that each season has different fishes to catch!

  • Regarding the Apple farm quest I don't know if this screenshot it's going to be helpful somehow:

  • Regarding the shields they were not designed to be into the game, we have added this content a couple of days before releasing the game.

Thank you! With that hint I completed the game :-D

As far as the colours, a sincere thank you for trying to help. I looked at the illustration and strangely, there's no way I could tell the brown from the red. The green looks like a lighter colour so I'd be able to identify that, but there's no way to play just with that. Thanks for the effort to accommodate!
