The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I can’t figure out how to play the harp correctly when Nina sings for customers in the pumpkin-house-thingy-mabbober.

Games Guru: It’s a terrific game overall, but this is a glitchy mini-game. Try holding the Wiimote so that the buttons face the left. Also, try recalibrating the Motion Plus just before you start. Follow the hands of the audience and match their rhythm. Don’t make wild moves. But do make them wide and flowing. Good luck!

I have reached the ground floor and am at the first temple. I got to the Skultas and can’t figure out how to defeat them. If you know any helpful tips, that would be great.

Games Guru: Whack them with a horizontal Wiimote strike. They’ll turn around. Then thrust theWiimote to hit them in the guts, their centers. Good news: You’ll get an item soon that’ll make dealing with the Skulltulas easier.

O Great Games Guru, do you have any big tips for defeating Ghiraham? I am stuck at the part where you must fight him for the second time in the fire sanctuary. There just seems no way to hit him; he blocks all my attacks. Any tips?

Games Guru: Go here and follow the instructions:

I am looking for the party wheel for the guy at Fun Fun Island. I know that it is in Lanayru Desert near the Lanayru Mining Facility entrance. I know that it is on a cliff that I can’t get to. The only clue I have is that there is an Amplius near it. How do I get the wheel?

Games Guru: It’s in the Lanayru Desert near the most Southern Bird Statue. Find and activate the Timeshift Stone. Vines will appears. Climb them and move eastward. You’ll soon see the wheel, somewhat covered by sand.

Would you please give me some tips for this game, o wise Games Guru? Thank you.

Games Guru: We have some tips in the March issue of Boys’ Life. If you missed them, here they are:

1. There’s a heart piece on the hanging chandelier in the Lumpy Pumpkin on Pumpkin Landing. To get it, roll into the banister which causes the chandelier to crash to the ground.

2. The Silent Realms can be quite challenging. The trick sometimes is to scope out and collect the most challenging tears first and save the easy to get to ones in case of an emergency.

3. If you’re ever in need of a fairy, there is one in a pot at the left side of the temple in the Sacred Grounds.

4. Koloktos is a tough boss to beat. Use your whip to pull away his arms, and then repeatedly stab the red heart-like jewel in his chest. The second part of the fight is even more of an adrenaline rush. Let’s just say that you have to use his weapons against him.

5. Collect Gratitude Crystals by doing side quests in and around Skyloft. To find out what the Gratitude Crystals are for, start with the “Lost Child” quest by talking to the worried mom by the Goddess Statue.

    Oh my gosh, the final boss is (almost) IMPOSSIBLE! I beat him though. I find it very irritating that you can’t keep playing after you win.

  14. BIG B says:

    I love this game! But on my non-compleated file, and stuck behind bars when I went into the water temple

  15. the master says:

    i have already beat the game and trying to beat demise on hero mode wish me luck

  16. gamerguy says:

    skywardsword is pretty good, demise is hard. i beat him with 5 heart potion++’s, 2 life medals, and the hylian shield, you get hylian shield by beating like 6 or 7 bosses in boss rush.

  17. legoguy says:

    Really fun game. Just so you know to get the wheel you need an ancient flower. Then give it to the guy in the gizmo shop to get his ancient hover bot working to pick up the wheel.

  18. legofroggy says:

  19. the legand of wesley says:

  20. ITS says:

    I played it at my cousins house. In Eldin Volcano, how do beat the demon lord? He’s got like, fifty hearts? (P.S. how do you get fifty gratitude cystals? Its so hard!)

  21. applesauce says:

    Demise took me like 15 tries to beat u will need like 3 heart potions to survive

  22. bubba boy says:

    The game is so easy!!! Have any of you guys gotten stuck trying to find the key to the big palace in Eldin Volcano? If you are, I know where it is. If you go to the end of the railing where you can jump off, jump off to your left. You will fall, But a platform should appear. Go through the door and then light the torches in order. Then you will get the key.

  23. yoman says:

    demise is hard how do you beat him

  24. darthchimpatron! says:

    awesomest game in the universe but demise was eeeeasy

  25. Chocolate says:

    SILENT REALM IS EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. pizza says:

    How do you complete the flying challange were you hit all of the targets in the sky in the limeted time you have? I have been trying and trying but i still cant hit all of the targets. Do you have any tips or ideas that would/could help me hit all of the targets.

    • $moneyman$ says:

      Not sure. Never had a problem with that part. I think you mean the spiral charge part. Here’s the best I have for that. There are more targets to hit than you need to beat the challenge, so don’t worry if you miss one. Try going for the targets on the rocks themselves because they will be easier to hit, ( unless you like attacking the crows). Other than that just keep going at it.

  27. $moneyman$ says:

    Finaly beat the game in hero mode. I got all of the gratatude crystals, and completed every sidequest I can find. Ask me anything.

  28. duckman says:

    this game is crazy awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. TARDIS915 says:

    Are there any codes for upgrades or gems?

  30. da shotput says:

    S-s-s-si-si-silent realm… sooooo scary….

  31. Jamwam says:

    Help i’m in the fire temple and just got the dongeon map but i can’t get pass the main chamber

    • $moneyman$ says:

      If you have the bomb bag, use the big ball to roll to the x on the upper right of the map, then throw a bomb at the crack on the wall, a tunnel will open up, go down it.

  32. mister man says:

    skykeep is hard

  33. sink says:

    i love the legend of zelda! but i wish it was 2 players.

  34. muggle says:

    You know the boss that can catch your sword in his fingers? I was (WAS) stuck on the part where he said “you will never win if you telegraph your attacks” I kept on complaining that I couldn’t beat him. My dad walked over and said “run around him, then attack.” It worked. Hope this bit of advice helped!

    • da shotput says:

      actually, Girahim (the boss) is beatable in that way, (I guess) or by making him face his hand to your sword and it will stay there and then attacking in the other direction. Hope this helps too! Ps call fi if you lose and can’t beat a boss. :)

    • gamerguy says:

      or, for example, make your sword go to the bottom right corner, and then quickly attack from the top left corner. this works most times for me.

  35. slug says:

    AWESOME game i cant get into the temple with zelda in it though but this is probably a stupid question plz answer

  36. yo yo master says:

    i want this so bad but i can’t decide should i buy this or super smash bros brawl ( i lost it makes me so mad >:( ) please tell me which to get.:-) ;)

    • The Game Master says:

      Yo Yo Master,

      If you like the Zelda series you should buy this game. If on the other hand it is just a “fun game” to you buy whatever. Congratulations on being a Yo Yo Master!

    • sword master says:

  37. Gillborax says:

  38. Anonymous says:

  39. Yugio says:

    I beat the game two times without help!

  40. rexmaximus says:

    the clawshots and whip are so awesome!!!

  41. AwesomeMagmaBlizzard says:

    if anyone wants to beat the boss who can grab your sword in his finger and can tellaport, all you need to do is run around him in circals, than attack. when he gets a sword, use a sheld to deflect his attacks, and whall he is stunded, ATTACK!!!!!!

  42. rexmaximus says:

    how do you beat scaldera, the second boss

  43. i wnt the game says:

    i want kid icurus so bad *graon* i whant it but i cant have it *sigh* :(

  47. $moneyman$ says:

    Love this game. I’ve beat it and i’m working on hero mode (double damage and no hearts appear). If you need help just ask.

    • cj says:

      My sister is fighting dimise any hints

      • zelda guru says:

        Demise is tough try toshield bash all attacks wen he is electrifying himself do a spin slash

      • gamerguy says:

        try beating 6 or 7 bosses in boss rush so you get the “absurdly sturdy shield”.

      • Blahblah says:

        Demise you should do this combo: swing left swing right swing left. On the 2nd phase you should quickly raise your sword when Demise does or if you see a lightning bolt in the distance and it acts like a stunning skyward strike.

  48. jrkirk says:

    i like the beetle

  49. jones says:

    what does the sword look like.
