Take on each of the challenges within the cave.
Collect all the coins.
Reach the cyclops and answer his challenge to retrieve the Orb of Verbs.
Entering the cave
The octopus demon will ask you which verbs are the present or past tense.
Hint: All verbs in their base form are in the present tense. A verb in any other form is usually either in the future or past tenses.
Answer 5 questions in a row correctly to enter.
If you make at least 1 mistake, you must answer 5 more questions until you get 5 correct ones in a row.
Flip the switches up or down to open the door by identifying whether the word it shows is a verb. If the word is a verb, then the switch goes up. If it isn’t, it goes down.
The cave door will only open if you flipped all the switches correctly.
If you don’t get all the answers correct, you must flip all the switches from the beginning.
Create a path
To move forward, you must answer the defender’s question on verbs.
Choose the right verb from the selection of choices to move forward. The verb must be in the correct form or tense.
Hint: Verbs take on an s when they are done by a single subject. They have no s when done by multiple subjects.
If you chose correctly, another path segment emerges from the lava. If you don’t, nothing happens.
Skipping across the lava
Cross the chasm by picking the right stone to step on.
Each steps represent a tense. Pick the step that best describes the tense shown in the sentence.
If you answer incorrectly, you fall in and must go through the entire puzzle all over again.
The cyclops will ask you to pick out the verbs in the sentence.
Verbs describe an action. Pick all the verbs that describe the subject or objects doing something.
Be very careful with be verbs: (am, is, are, be). If another verb is beside it, it is not the verb to select. If it is the only verb in the sentence, you must select it.
Watch out for verbs functioning as adjectives. If a word that’s usually a verb describes something other than the action done, it’s an adjective. For more unexpected uses of verbs, see this page.
Select check to verify your answers.
You can only move onto the next question when you’ve chosen all the correct answers.
Answer all 5 questions to win the orb.
It’s impossible to backtrack in this game, so collect all the coins that you can before entering any of the game’s doors.
Most doors face sideways, so consider avoiding them until you’ve collected everything in that section of the cave.
