Fantastic game. Brings back pleasant memories of Link to the Past, Illusion of Gaia and Terranigma. The Minish Cap didn't really hook me but this game sure did. Meaty sound effects too.

I managed to barge my way into the last spirit, last power. All fun, love the different elements, but when you have to check 120 different combinations for lighting 5 candles, yeah, I hope there is a walkthrough....

Yeah, I need either a walkthrough or a translation, I only got 1 spirit and tried everything... -.-
Does someone know what I must do now?

that spirit is able to trigger switches (as in those blue and brown floor switches), try to time it ;)

This game is pure magic, same as Akuji the Demon. But the lack of English really hurts, especially when you have to solve the number puzzles on your lonesome, without the help of the flowers (I assume they give you hints).

Pure Magic. Get Now.

Hey cool game, I wonder why its been proposed just as a freeware, buster rocks. Love the artwork.

Here are some of the most difficult switch codes

Water Shrine

3 1 4 2


Earth Shrine

3 1
2 4


Candles combination

x x
3
1 2

At the moment I'm stuck at what seems to be the last level. Maybe I'll write a walkthrough this summer if I don't find better to do hehe

Fantastic game - but I'm stuck in the forest maze. No matter which combination of directions I go in, I can't advance. Am I doing something wrong?
Anonymous Anonymous said at 5/29/2006 08:01:00 PM:  
Before you walk into the forest maze (I assume you mean the one that resembles the "Lost Woods" in Zelda, and not the maze where you have to find four or five ladybug type things), you'll want to look around the overworld for a cat. If you talk to the cat, it will disappear. Then, go back into the maze and after walking around a bit, the cat will be there to lead the way.

please help! I'm stuck in this game, but it's a very strange thing.

I'm in the second dungeon, the one when you acquire the spirit that allows you to swim. The problem is I need to change to the first spirit to be able to get out of the dungeon (turning again to the beggining of the dungeon, there's a room with mushroom, and I need to make it grow to jump and continue walking), and I simply cannot change the spirit.

I press F1, (by default I have the second spirit selected) and I select the first spirit, but when I press F1 again, I still have the second spirit selected, and I can't use the magics of the first spirit (and for that reason, I cannot make the mushroom grow and pass that room and go out of the dungeon). I'm using windows 98. It's maybe some kind of bug?

It seems to be a nice game, but where is the sword at the start of the game? The Z button doesn't work as it seems there's no sword in equipment, so where could I find the sword?

Walkthrough doesn't cover evil paradise and I'm also stuck on the iceblock puzzle. Has anyone got past it yet?
Anonymous Anonymous said at 11/03/2006 08:43:00 AM:  
I can't believe how easy that ice-block puzzle wound up being once I figured it out. You ready?

Remember: ORDER IS IMPORTANT!
The three blocks on the same vertical line will be called A, B, and C from top to bottom. The fourth will be D.
Push B left.
Push D left.
Push A up.
Push C up.
Push A left.
Push B up.
Push C left.
Walk over the bottom switch, and the aquamarine is yours.

Great game, but im stuck on the very end part, with the last boss, can anyone help?
Anonymous Anonymous said at 4/09/2007 07:23:00 PM:  
the last boss? its simple.. all u have 2 do is gather the MP coins.. if u have water MP on you, you have 2 use an offensive water attack at the boss's ring.. the colours on the ring around him stand for the types of MP...

e.g. BLUE=WATER
RED=FIRE
ORANGE=WIND...

etc

good game... reminded me of zelda but better music..

Please help! I'm totally stuck.
I've just entered the dark area. I understand about coins and the different elements. I've gotten to a locked door and found the key, but can't get through the red puffy things to get the key. Cant find the dark spirit or whatever it is. Any hints and clues. Is there a written walkthrough that anyone knows of?

I am in Paradise too and have one emblem [Forest] Cannot do anything else. Please someone give me some clues.
Anonymous Anonymous said at 6/01/2007 02:47:00 PM:  
To find the sword you go to the sign South=East Forest Town, turn right, go until you see 3 purple square stones. Move them to get by.
go around the "trees" and you will se a sliding platform. Get on the platform and go to the other side.
Fall into the hole on the left. You will be inside the cave. Go left until you see a switch. That will open the door to get the sword.

Anonymous Anonymous said at 6/11/2007 03:03:00 PM:  
Guardian of Paradise is a polished Zelda-like game with great graphics and interesting gameplay, but it`s not without its flaws. The spell system may be well integrated with the game's puzzles, but I often found it to be very restrictive, especially when I wished I could use the dash and jump to get past some areas faster. Also, if you're gonna put any form of plot in a game you better give it some pacing. What plot there is in this game is just thrown at your face in the last moment, making it seem like an afterthought. The bosses were pretty nice, however, and kept my adrenaline pumping. Overall it`s a very good game, but not incredible. I`ll give it 8 out of 10.
Anonymous Anonymous said at 6/15/2007 10:00:00 PM:  
Would the ones that have finished the game please help us that is in the final area. When you say you are in Paradise and have recovered the elements but not emblems, where are the locusts you talk about?

Anonymous Anonymous said at 8/20/2007 11:58:00 AM:  
In the area where the whirling machines are that look like they are putting out fog/snow you can use the dark coin [purple] and run around the area to get to the chest at the end that has wind coins [yellow]. If you hold down the X and "walk" him slowly you can make it around to the chest. It takes some practice.

I"m in the last castle of the game, trying to get the emblems back. I have the forest emblem but that's it. I can't figure out how to go anywhere else. The only thing I can seem to do is fall through the holes in the floor but that doesn't take me anywhere new.

Is there any other walkthroughs for the game? A hint? Anything so I can progress?
