I have just printed off your rather excellent guide to this DS game in the hope that I can help Edmund find the White Witch - having lots of trouble at the moment!
I smash the three ice statues, kill the anklebiters, goblins etc but cannot get past the iron staves at the top neither can I find a way up to the White Witch from the Red Dwarf's Peak. You say in your guide you enter through a "narrow defile in the north" but I have been stuck at this level for three days and cannot see a way through.
Any specific instructions and/or screen shot would really really help me as I think this is a fabulous game and am quite desperate to get on and keep playing. I got my DS for Christmas and this is the one game that has really captured my imagination!
Thanks for all and any help you can give me in working out this problem.
There is a cave entrance blocked with stakes on that mountain that actually is a dead end. Disregard it. It is most frustrating! It originally was intended to have a purpose but in the final version of the game, that purpose was deleted but the visuals were left untouched. I spent about a month trying to unlock it after I completed the game without success. I finally spoke to my contact at BuenaVista about it and he told me the sad truth. I should have been less stubborn and contacted him sooner but I always like to try to solve everything myself in a game when I am working on a guide.
As far as the real path is concerned, it is rather difficult to explain... it is right in front of you actually! I myself have 'lost' the path many times simply because it is not very clear visually but it is right there. It has been two years since I last played this game, but you simply carry on climbing the mountain. Are you stuck sort of halfway up the mountain?
It is a glorious game... in fact, I wish I could play it again. If you continue to have trouble, let me know and I will look for my own copy and try to walk you through it.
Actually, when Milly found the path, she described it very well:
Thank you very much for your reply.
I have indeed "found" the path after using my up and sideways (left) button simultaneously, otherwise I would just slide down the path and have to climb up the vine continuously - very frustrating!
Anyway, you are quite correct it is a simply glorious game and I am enjoying playing it so much that my console needs charging approximately once every day!
Thank you once again for your kind reply.
Very best wishes
