Crane Craze is a mini game located in Merry Meadow Icon.webp Merry Meadow, in the Fast Travel Icon.png Merry Meadows Temple area accessible after growing the third Beanstalk from a Giant Seed.png Giant Seed and completing the "Petal Puzzle" quest. It is inside a round stone doorway in a tree trunk previously closed by a door with gems on it.

For 1 Game Ticket Icon.png game ticket, the Nul Icon.png nul allows the player to have one turn with no time limit, and the player must choose between Hard Mode or Easy Mode. The modes have different prizes available. Hard mode also has crates move faster and more erratically, though there is a pattern to how crates move.

The game is played by guiding a Crane Craze.png crane around a circular pool. The pool has 10 moving lily pads with crates on top. The crates have images of their contents on them. The player stands on the blue triangle buttons to use them as a directional pad to guide the crane around the pool. When satisfied with the crane's placement and what it might grab, the player must step on the purple circle button to trigger the crane to lower.

If the crane manages to grab a crate, it will bring it to the landing circle and drop it there, where the player must open their prize with a crate. If it fails to grab a crate, a crate with 3 Pollen Puff.png Pollen Puffs inside will be dropped on the landing circle.

Tips for Winning Crane Craze

The game relies on good timing and good positioning. The crates usually float closer to the pool's edge than its center, so it is better to move the crane away from the center. Also, make sure that you can see the shadow of the crane in the water, as the shadow allows you to judge where the crane will reach when lowered.

Some devices do not display the shadow properly, which can increase the difficulty. If you do not have a shadow that appears, use the stone blocks around the edge of the pond to help judge where the crane will land. If you make a habit of only moving the crane in one direction, it is easier to remember where the crane will reach the pond.

Once you have the crane positioned with the directional buttons, move away from them and towards the circle button without stepping on it. Only step on the button when you think the crane will catch a crate when lowered. If the claw does not close on both sides of a crate, the catch will fail.
