Hey, people.

I'm really needing help here. I've finished the game and the only things left to do are those bloody pigeons and shield.

The place is easy to recognize. It's right where you have that big ramp with giant balls rolling down. I've tried everything from jumping from up the ramp and from the cart, but nothing managed to get me to where I should go to get the pigeons and shield.

Take a look at the pictures and if you guys have any tips, pleeeeease let me know :)

You actually can jump there from the toad-ball machine. I managed it by doing the single jump + attack thing that shoots you forward (I'm at work so I don't know the name of the attack). But by far, the easier way to do it is to run through Doctormabus' lair again, which will spit you out on top of that dry aqueduct or whatever it is.

As a side note, I'm missing 3 pigeons and 1 shield. :( I'm running through the game a second time, and writing up a list of where the items are and will post it in the next couple of days. Hopefully then someone will be able to let me know which ones I missed. :)

Dude! Thank you so much! That single jump + dash tip was a life saver.

You can't actually jump from that toad-ball machine, but what I did was to single jump to the right and then use the B button to dash in the air in a way that I could land on the pigeon cage pointed in the first picture.

Then, in front of me there were the other (and last) two cages. Once you free all pigeons, the last shield is shown by the birds (you can't get all the shields without freeing all the pigeons first.

As for your problem, the best way is walking by all areas again and holding dogmatix (RT) until you know there's no pigeon cages in that area.

The last shield will be only available for you to get once you free all pigeons, so don't worry about this one ;)

You're correct, I wasn't clear in what I said. I meant you could do the jump + attack dash from the ledge where the toadball machine was, not from on the machine itself. I'm glad you were able to get it though. :woop:

As for my missing pigeons, I thought I had gone through all the areas holding Dogmatix, but I must have missed one. Irregardless, I'm going to write up all the pigeon, shield, glue and magnesia locations to post here. That will help others, and hopefully me too. :)

You're doing something very useful. I bet that if I had a guide with the locations, I'd spend half the time I spent with this game.

Good luck, my friend! :drunk
