Monkey trouble!
February 9, 2007 9:35 PM   Subscribe

Zelda/wii: I have all three monkeys and I am standing at the long rope which (I am assuming they are supposed to help me get across), yet they do nothing but follow me around. What am I doing wrong?

I've completed every part of everything up until here according to the guide on IGN's website. Is there something I am missing?

I think you need four monkeys to cross the broken bridge.

Gamespot has a Zelda guide as well if IGN's isn't helping.

you could try, if you haven't already. They've got spectacular cheats and walkthroughs. I personally don't own a Wii or play Zelda, so I can't help otherwise, sorry.

Yep, you need more monkeys. When you have enough, they'll know what to do.

Is this The Twilight Princess version?... It sounds like you're in the Forest Temple... My son can't remember what you need to do, but there are walk-throughs at that he finds very helpful... Good luck!

Ask MetaFilter: You need more monkeys.

I concur with the GameFAQs recommendations, and I'll add that I had the exact same problem as you, and it was one of the 2 or 3 most frustrating parts of the game.

thanks! I found the step i was missing! Rock Steady, you are right, this is completely frustrating!

On a side note, I love any AskMefi question that results in an overwhelming response that I do, indeed, need more monkeys!

Thanks, everyone!

There were three spots in Zelda where I got stuck, and that was one of them.

Grumble. I was gonna put two hints/spoilers, but Matt has disabled the font color tag, so I can't hide them in the page's background color.

I don't want to accidentally wreck this wonderful game for anyone, so I'll suggest the FAQs instead. :)

You know, there are very few problems where the answer is you need more monkeys....

Just a random thought.

And maybe the world just needs more monkeys in general.

I remember I used to have to a call a long distance "helpline" number in Seattle to get past my Zelda stages! And, boy, was my Mom angry when the phone bill came. Ah, the internets!

I remember this. I got stuck for about half an hour until I realized I needed more.

Keep looking!
