How to get all 3 keys!

Ok the dimond is to set a fire, but don't put fire wood until there is nothing in the fire place. Then later you will see a dimond. Have 1 villager to the water fall to put water on it to make it cool down, but put another villager on top of the dimond when the other one puts the water, but put him/ her exactly the same time the other one puts the water. The pink jewel. Make the potion cactus, rose, and lotus then when a villager tastes it, they will feel light and springy then put him/ her right next to the pink jewel then that villager will get it. The pearl. Get level 3 of restoration and level 3 of leader ship then get a master builder to write on the chalk board then fix the statue, but only at least trainee builders can help push it.(the more villagers, the more faster.) After you are done, there will be a light blue mest up fake pearl get an adept builder. If it does not work then only a master builder will work. Then get an adept scientist. If it does not work then only a master scientist will work. After that get your chief to replace the pearl the clam has for the fake one. Then you have all the keys! Have fun!

Solution for the food

This game is great! I love all the puzzels and just the game itself. I've noticed a lot of people have said their people r dead from starvation :/ it's easy.
Beehive: there r these stick-like things right next to the beehive on the ground, put a villager on them and he/she will go to the fire to light them, & then he/she will go to the beehive. U now have honey :)
Orchard: U need to have level 2 restoration and at least 3 adept builders. Place the builders on the machine in the blackish dirt right next to the food bin. They will then fix the machine, wait till it rains and put a builder to stand on the lift, wait for the lift to go all the way up and a piece of fruit will drop. Drop a villager on the piece of fruit & he/she will go and plant it. Do this 3 times for the Orchard.
Fish: you need to either have lvl 2 magic/nature do the potion to get rid of the sharks (pitcher plant/berries & 2 black orchid) (I think) then the villager will get rid if the sharks and u can start to fish.
Hope this helps!!!!!

Awesome game and highly recommended

I love this game and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to play games but is usually very busy. This game progresses even when you aren't playing it, which is perfect for those who are always very busy. The puzzles are very challenging, but if you get stuck, there is plenty of help online, even very detailed lists of how to accomplish each puzzle. To the person who got stuck trying to push the statue up the hill: you MUST have a chief directing the work at all times. If, for some reason, your chief stops, then the progress stops until you make your chief return. To the person who's villagers won't age: this game runs off the clock in your iPhone/iPod Touch, and if there is a problem with your clock, then the game won't run correctly.
