Konami has revealed some advanced tips to help players beat certain quests from their new adventure/simulation RPG game, Magicians Quest Mysterious Times

has over 50 events, and many unique and interesting characters for you to interact with. What follows are some examples of these events as well as a few tips to help you solve them:
: Journey to Magic Academy where you'll be met by the Sphinx. There he will ask you a question which you must answer correctly. Upon answering the question correctly or not, the Sphinx will move to a different location where you'll have to find him. Once you find him, you can cast a spell to make it rain which requires you have aquamarine in your possession. The Sphinx moves again. Find him and cast the rainbow spell which requires you have turquoise in your possession. The Sphinx moves again. Find him and cast the spell to make it rain flowers, which requires you to have the marguerite flower in your possession. This will complete the challenge.
: Head down to the Post Office where you'll need to speak with Thom, the post office worker to trigger the event. Once you do, Death will appear. Death is there to take Thom's soul and your job is to save it. Death will play a song called "That's Soul". You then need to go into town and buy the CD that has that song on it, return and give it to Death in exchange for Thom's soul. This will complete the challenge.
: Mysterious Time begins and you'll be thrust into an environment where you'll be greeted by a Martian. He'll speak in his mystery language which you'll need to figure out to answer his questions. When he asks you his second question, answer "no". Once you do so you'll need to hand him the Flower of Skull which you must have in your possession. This will complete the challenge.
: Walk all the way to the back of the cave where you meet the dragon. He's stuck in the cave because he can't fly. After he speaks, go to the spell casting screen and select the "greeting" icon. Then he'll ask you to give him 3 kinds of medicine which require 3 different items: Freaky Frog Fat, Ancient Dragon Scale and Mandragona Root. You'll need to watch him for some time to make sure he's okay. After the last of the medicine the dragon will thank you which will complete the challenge.
: Nessie lives deep in the cave, after he speaks go to the spell casting screen and select the "greeting" icon. Nessie will retreat back into the lake and you'll have to leave the cave. Enter again and Nessie reappears, asking you if you've brought him an item. You'll need to give Nessie a fish 4 times, after which, Nessie will thank you. Next, Nessie will demand a song and you'll have to whistle until Nessie thanks you and says goodbye. This will complete the challenge.
