nineteen : @Furdiburb for dummies

This post is base on one dsscussion about Furdiburb at his facebook fan page

Hope it can help 🙂

Please note that furdiburb is a PUZZLE GAME. This dummies guide will completely ruin the fun of figuring things out on your own. I’ve included a FAQ section for those of you looking for a quick answer. I urge you to try things out on your own before resorting to this guide. 🙂

Furdi burb starts out as an egg. The quickest way to hatch his egg is to throw it around, zap it with a passing cloud, rock it back and forth, drag a wind to it and let the cyclone help crack it, and/or put chicken mama on the egg. (But do be careful..once his head peeks out, take chicken mama off and toss her so she flies away, otherwise she could get eaten. Don’t worry about her flying away, she’ll be back on the roof when you come back)
Once he is fully hatched, you can feed him if he’s hungry. (He will look sad when he’s hungry.) There are three sprouts on furdis home screen. Drag a cloud to one of the sprouts and water it, once the cloud floats away you will see something “grow”.
Items that grow on sprouts
Hot dogs- edible
Mangasteen fruit (plum looking dealio) – edible
Pumpkin – edible
Strawberry- edible
Pink sushi (looks like a cupcake) – edible
Yellow sushi- inedible (rotten)
Squirrels- inedible
Squash- edible
Cheese- edible
Pineapple- edible
Dragon fruit- edible
Eggplant- edible
Pick whatever it is that grew (if edible) and feed it to furdi. Keep feeding him until he smiles. Furdi can eat alot!
If what you grew was inedible, simply pick it up and “long press” to store the item in your inventory. You can long press on furdi to gain access to your inventory.

Furdi will poo, at some point, you can long press on these to store them as well. The ice cream looking ones (looks like neopolitan icecream) are used to buy a potion from the owl.

To enter furdis house, or any house (the tree, the shell, or the castle) long press on the door.

The plant in furdis house is called a ginko. If it only has one leaf, its not because its sick, its because ginkos lose their leaves in the winter.

Once you’ve gotten acquainted with furdis home screen, drag your finger along the ground in either direction. There are more lands to visit! In one direction is the owls house in the dark woods, followed by a mysterious bridge. In the opposite direction you’ll find the statue of the twin sisters and a fountain, further is an empty land with rocks and then the sea, where you’ll find the crabs house. Past the crabs house and the beach is the recycling machine.

The crab sells potions that change furdis appearance, along with a free renewal potion that will revert furdi back to normal after you’ve given him one of the potions.
The owl sells potions that cure furdi of sickness, and also sells star potions. When you visit the owl, make sure you pick up one of the free potions. You’ll need this for star surfing.

To star surf, go to the land with the sister statues. Long press on furdi to get the potion out of his inventory. Place the potion in the sisters hand ( the one not already holding a bottle.) The fountain begins to swirl and sparkle. Toss your furdi into the fountain. He shoots up into the stars. Use your phone to steer him towards the stars to earn credits (money ) and climb higher. If furdi ends up in open space with no stars to propel him, he falls to the ground. After a short distance you’ll see a spinning vortex, aim for that and it gives you a speed boost. After three of those you should arrive on your first planet. Once there, you can take a break before going on.

The planets you jump are Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune.
After the last planet will be the spaceship. (Once you reach this, it crashes. There’s nothing you can do about it until they update and fix it.)

The planets are just rest stops. You can’t do anything on them. The further you go, you’ll see different stars. These are worth more money.

Back on earth, there’s still the mysterious bridge. Hopefully on your way to the crab, you’ll have noticed a rock with a little plant on it and picked it up. This is on the land with boulders on each side. If not, you might want to! Head back to the owls place…you might notice some patches of clover grass. Try watering these and you’ll find they grow mushrooms. Store these away for later.

Once at the bridge you’ll notice 4 pillars. You’ll have to figure out the riddle to get across the bridge. Its pretty simple. You need earth, water, fire, air (not sure if this is the actual order in the game, but you get the idea) the water and wind are in the sky. The earth and fire are in your pocket…kind of. The earth is the rock. Fire is the mushroom. But you have to feed the mushroom to furdi, to light the fire.

Once you’ve figured the riddle out, a castle appears. Long press to enter and you’ll find the monks. They commend you for figuring out the puzzle and offer to sell you some furniture for furdis house. You can’t go into the hallway past the monks. The castle is only a furniture store.

Now, on to furdi care.
Furdi gets dirty. You have to wash him. To do this, take a cloud from the sky and place it over furdis head til it rains on him. Grab an aloe leaf ( in front of furdis house) and scrub the little guy down. Scrub until all the stink lines disappear. Then grab a wind from the sky to dry him. Always dry your furdi or he will get sick!!

If furdi gets sick he gets spots or plaid stripes. Look at the colors of the spots or stripes and go to the owl. Match the colors of furdis sickness to the colors of the potions.
*Potions list*
Chili potion- red and purple cures tummy aches.

Vitamin C- orange cures furdi of a cold from not being properly dried off.

Eye berry- pink and blue cures tummy aches from greedy eyes and eating ice cream looking poo. This doesn’t cost any credits, just an ice cream poo.

Free Star quest potion- is free from the owl and is given to the sisters statues to star jump.

$1000 star quest potion- given to the sisters so you can continue star jumping from the last planet you reached.

98 squirrels star quest potion- given to the sisters to bypass all planets and make it to the spaceship. (Which will crash, for now.)
The crab has three potions available now.
The cyclops potion turns furdi into a cyclops. The bottle will have an eye looking symbol on it.

The goth potion changes furdis antenna, gives him a piercing and a few spikes. The bottle will have a line with spikes on it.

The free potion has arrows on it, and reverts furdi to his normal appearance.

*The recycling machine*
To use the recycling machine, (which is past the beach land with the crabs house), you want to drag a cloud to the top of it where the globe is. It will start up (and Vibrate your phone). Then place 3 items in the glass tubes. After you’ve selected your items, press the red button. Something new will be created, or you’ll receive star credits ranging from 10 to thousands.

The FAQ!

What do I do if furdi is sick?
Match the colors of his stripes or spots to the potions color that the owl sells. Or keep in mind that if you feed furdi something bad, give him lavender chili potion. If you left him wet after bathing him, give him the orange potion. If you find an icecream poo with a bite out of it, give him the eyeball potion.

Why is furdi always sad?
Because you’re not feeding him until he smiles.

What is chicken momma for?
Currently, she is only good for hatching.

How do I make money?
By starjumping at the sisters statue with the free potion from owl.

How do I fix the spaceship?
This will be addressed in the next update. Furdi creators have said that the ship will be fixed in stages.. the first stage will be the next update

How do I get the spaceship? By star jumping all five planets or buying the potion from the owl that costs 98 squirrels. Do NOT feed this potion to furdi. Put it in the statue as if you would when star jumping.

How do I solve the monks riddle?
If you’re talking to the monk, you’ve already solved the riddle.

How do I solve the element puzzle?
Earth- the rock, fire- the fire shroom or a chili fed to furdi by the pillar. Water- a cloud, air- a wind whirl from the sky.
