Return to Mysterious Island (Spoilers)

I am enjoying this game, but the glitches and inventory screen make me feel like its the game that isn't working rather than my ability to figure it out. I actually went to the PC version walkthrough online and that doesn't seem to work all the time. So I am appealing to those out there who know for help.

I am at the point of the game where I have an uncooked cake and I can't cook it in the oven. Is this supposed to be possible? I also want to get by the big bad monkey on the other side of the bridge. I tried to look online for help but it says I need the cake or bamboo, but the cake is uncooked and my bamboo doesn't work on the sulfur pool. Any ideas?

Thanks

This link is great for hints to the game. But it was made for the PC version.

figued out the cake

Strange, but you can't bake the cake in the oven, you need the open fire. This game is a bit different than the pc version.

Now If I can just get the Canon to fire!!! gunpowder and a canon ball went in... But I'm not sure what to do next. This seems different than the PC version too.

loading the canon (Nemo's Ship section)

I got back to the spot I was after the crashing. Now.

Does anyone know how t load the Cannon on the iphone version. When you add a cannon ball the cannon shows gun powder, when you add gunpowder it shows a cannon ball being added... then it tells me the canon isn't loaded properly. This seems like one of the last steps in the game and I am stuck.

Thanks.

What do I do with the metals on the wall (where you climb up and she says its odd)?

That dry plant with spikes, what do I do?

To really get the game moving you need a knife. Use a rock on the wreckage of the boat near the ocean and it falls apart. The metal piece you get can be made into a knife by combining it with the rock in your inventory (this was new to me, combining items in the inventory is really important just take one object and drag it onto another in the inventory sceen and watch what happens). keep the knife in your hand for a while and all sorts of good stuff happens. Fire is similar, combine the silex and the metal plaque and you get a lighter, then combine the lighter with two burnable oblects liek the dry lichen and the wood that you collected from the boat. Hope that helps. I bet you can figure out the vine with the spikes now, it always depends on what is in your hand.

Yeah, just noticed combining. OK, so do you know where I can get the "lens"?

Thanks MrMann, I had allready figured out the nails, but for some reason I had never touched the cannon just right to get the drawer to close.... The combination of things with action icons and things without tricks you. I think the game would be slightly easier without the help and just larger objects.
