Matt Bird writes all sorts of nonsense, but he dedicates a large chunk of his time to writing game walkthroughs.
Hyphen Heights is home to all who don't quite want to live in the big city but still enjoy an urban lifestyle. The place needs some fixing. A magical notebook is just the thing to get started on patching up these people.
|Task||Who gives the task?||Solution||Reward|
Help me befriend the birds!
Grandmother to the left of the subway line
What else? Give her some 'birdseed'.
I need to teach this dog a trick!
Dog Trainer above the subway
Clearly this Dog Trainer doesn't know what she's doing. Bring in another 'dog trainer' to do her job for her.
Will you help us get our ball? Be careful not to touch the old man's lawn!
Whippersnapper near the subway
The old man can't get mad about kids on his lawn if he can't see them. Make him 'blind' or give him a 'blindfold', then run over and grab the ball. Hand it to the Whippersnapper.
Help me become a better basketball player!
Basketball Player above the old man's house
Make the Basketball Player 'tall', 'big' or 'fast' to improve his game.
This grass is overgrown!
Townhouse near the old man's house
Pfft, so obvious. Make a 'cow' to eat the grass. Next! (Also maybe a 'lawnmower'.)
I need to get to school, but I'm afraid Duce will hurt me!
Boy next to the school
Your brother is such a punk. Either make Duce 'friendly' or make the Boy 'invisible' so he can slip by.
Starite Shard; unlocks Duce
My 3D glasses can make anyone on the screen look 3D!
Flux, next to the movie screen above the diner
Flux just wants to see something alive on the movie screen. Create a person or animal and put it on the screen.
Starite Shard; unlocks Flux
I wish someone would give me something romantic like in the movies!
Theatergoer next to the movie screen
This girl is pretty picky. Think stereotypical dating periphinalia - 'chocolates', 'flowers', 'candy' - to win her heart.
This pizza will be cold by the time I deliver it on foot!
Teen next to the diner
Clearly a terrible deliverboy, the Teen needs transportation. Give him a 'car' or 'jet' or 'UFO' or something.
Try my new magical movie treats!
Fairy Godmother near the movie screen
In what may be a terrible move, eat one of the floating items at the stand near the screen.
Boyfriend near the old man's house
Start off this lovely date by giving the Boyfriend a 'suit' or 'hair gel'. Next, transportation - make it something snazzy, like a 'moving van'. Next she needs a present - how about a 'DVD'? Fourth is a romantic mood-setter, and a 'musician' will do the trick. Last, in the fastest marriage proposal ever, they need someone to help at the wedding. A 'priest' will seal the deal.
Out with the Old!
Woman by the diner
First, bring down the building with a 'battering ram', 'bulldozer' or 'bomb'. Next, create somewhere people would like to visit - perhaps a 'park'. Last, use a 'megaphone' to bring people to your new attraction.

Full Stop Diner
You know a restaurant is in trouble when there are dogs and monsters in attendance. Help solve the problems of this lacklustre diner with your culinary expertise.
|Task||Who gives the task?||Solution||Reward|
I'm so bored! Give me something to entertain myself!
Bored Boyfriend near the entrance
His date is dull. Give him a piece of entertainment, such as a 'magazine', to take his mind off his dull Girlfriend.
I wish he would give me something to make me feel better!
Brokenhearted Crying Girlfriend
She's broken up because you distracted her Boyfriend. Give her something nice to smooth things over - perhaps a 'ring'?
Help! The oven is on fire!
Flaming Stove in the kitchen
'Fire extinguisher' all the way. Or a 'firefighter'?
We won't pass the health inspection with these bugs around!
Sanitation Supervisor in the basement
You can swat the bugs with a 'flyswatter' or some other weapon, or send a predatory bird like a 'hawk' in to do the job.
I'm trapped in the freezer! Help me out and warm me up!
Freezer in the basement
Empty' the Freezer, then create a 'fire' nearby to thaw its residents.
We're looking for a suitable individual to join our club!
Minotaur in the basement
Create a generic 'monster' or go with something specific, like a 'siren' or 'demon' or 'Cthulhu'.
The billboard needs to show what we sell here!
Chief Marketing Officer on the roof
Create a random food item and shove it on the billboard. (Heck, you don't even seem to need food. I used a 'saki', a sort of monkey, and it worked fine.)
When will dinner arrive?
Dogs on the second floor
Either summon a 'waiter' to serve food or create some of your own.
Oops! I forgot to fill the box with a gift!
Grandmother on the second floor
You can put anything - ANYTHING - in the box, and it seems to count as a gift.
Feed the Hungry Guests!
Table near the entrance
Each guest wants something different. Give the school boy some kind of vegetable; the vampire could use a drink; the robot will want 'oil' or 'robotic' food; and the cannibal, er, will want a person. Any person. How grim.
Chef in the kitchen
The chef will want different ingredients for each guest. Start with 'cheese', 'sauce' and 'dough' for the pizza, then add a secret ingredient (anything, really). Next, you need to make a Phoenix. 'Fire', 'feather', 'wings' and 'magic' will bring it to life. Last is a motorcycle: use a 'wheel', a 'horn' and an 'engine' to get rolling.
Completing these two levels will give you enough Starite stamina to make your way to the next group of levels - and perhaps beyond.
