General Tips/FAQ

  • First and foremost, this is not a “Guide Dang It” game! Don’t worry about missables (there are none) and you should be able to beat most of the game without a guide, so try your best and come back if you get stuck or need something specific
  • You don’t have to complete a level/survive to keep Collectibles. If you touch a Petal or give a Flower to the prince, it’s saved even if you leave the stage
  • Try clearing a path of enemies before taking the prince along when possible
  • For Pacifist challenges, jump over small enemies in the way and you’ll usually be able to avoid them. Sometimes you have to be patient to wait for opportune enemy placement.
  • For Speed challenges, making a clean run through a level without any KOs or major mistakes is usually enough. You’ll usually be good on these your second playthrough if you remember what to do.
  • Mushrooms cary your momentum from when you jump; press jump after moving in a direction to jump much farther in that direction. It’s much harder to change course mid-jump
  • Drop gingerly off ledges with mushrooms below; it’s pretty easy to take fall damage from some of the spots
  • In certain circumstances, you may need to select Retry from the menu to return to your last checkpoint if you’re permanently separated from the prince or otherwise mess up a puzzle. Don’t worry, it doesn’t restart the whole level, just the checkpoint
  • If you’re really, really stuck, you can skip stages after 10 minutes (but there’s a walkthrough below, so you shouldn’t get stuck that long…)

Walkthrough (Spoiler Free)

Here you’ll find video walkthroughs of every level in the game with all story cutscenes removed, so no spoilers! Click the links to skip right to the relevant level or use the embed to see the whole chapter. I’ve also noted which levels have achievements specific to them.

Each level has 5 Petals to collect and some have one Flower; see the Stage Select menu in the game to see which you’re missing from which stages. I recommend a full playthrough before going back to re-collect Petals, you can do it at any time so no rush, and it’s more fun if you try to figure out the puzzles at least once yourself.

The Witch’s Garden

Chapter 3

  • Hallow Tree Hill puzzle

This puzzle is hard enough the game lets you skip it, so I thought I’d leave some hints if you’re stuck but want to get through with as little help as possible. In the video I simply show the correct solution immediately.

Hint the first: 

Gameplay Spoilers
It’s not a riddle. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out the riddles. They’re not riddles, they’re much blunter than they appear.

Hint the second:

Gameplay Spoilers
Each of the phrases is suggesting the column and row of the number for it’s orb.

Hint the final:

Trophies (Achievements)

You’ll be glad to know no trophies in Liar Princess and the Blind Prince are missable, and most will be earned just by playing the game. Most of the rest are simple speed/pacifist runs through specific levels.

Story Achievements

These achievements’ names are potentially spoilers (and hidden trophies by default), and you get all of them simply by beating the story anyway. I’ve swept them under the rug here to avoid spoilerinos.

  • Starting Point
    • Beat the game
  • Blade of Words
    • Get called a liar by the prince
      • Chapter 5
  • Eat Up, Moles!
    • Give flowers to the Moles

      • Chapter 2

Album

The album lets you re-watch any cutscene in Liar Princess and the Blind Prince at any time!

There is also a section for the flowers (see Walkthrough to see how to unlock those). You can see which flowers you’re missing in Stage Select. Don’t worry about missing any; you can go back to any stage later and get them.

Completing all the flowers unlocks an extra little story about the Witch in the forest; check the flowers in the menu to read it.

Collection

These are unlocked by collecting the gold Petals, 5 in every stage of Liar Princess and the Blind Prince. See the Stage Select menu to see which you’re missing after beating the game, then use the above Walkthrough section to find the specific leaves’ locations! Don’t worry about getting 100% your first time through, you can simply return at any time for the leaves.

Enemies

Caterpillar

HP: 2

The weakest enemy, they can be safely hopped over in most cases, making Pacifist challenges easier. Otherwise, they actively run from the Wolf and go down in only 2 hits.

Boar

HP: 3

Nothing can be done to avoid these as the Princess; you’ll have to either stay out of their path or kill them as the Wolf. Their charge doesn’t faze the wolf at all.

Moth

HP: 2

Shockingly vicious, these moths have a short activation radius but will KO the prince or Princess within a couple seconds if they’re within striking range. Almost always good to clear them out ahead of time.

Flower Bud

HP: Infinite

She’s your first friend on the forest, and spits out spiked seeds that instantly defeat enemies, and are almost always needed for little physics puzzles around the level. Time your slashes at her to solve the puzzles. The seeds can also wei

Yeti

HP: Invincible

She tries to help but isn’t very good at it. Contact won’t damage you, but they’ll toss you backwards (relative to their current facing). This is usually required to get up to a ledge, but they throw you high enough that if you land on the same level you were thrown from, you’ll be knocked out.

Puffy Blowhogs

Liar Princess windbag enemy

HP: Invincible

Surely not the real name for these things, but whatever they are, they’re invincible but you can turn them around with the Wolf. They don’t deal contact damage, they just push you around.

They push you back (even as the wolf) but stop to take breaths. They’re usually placed to stop you, but they can be used to get a bit of speed if they’re facing the right way too.

Addendum
