    Viva Pinata help

    Help with Viva Pinata...

    This goes out to all you Pinata addicts...

    I'm having trouble taming sours, how do you get them to eat what you need? I've had the Jack O' Lantern out for the sherbat for at least 6 nights and he won't look at it twice, same with the other sour which needs the bird bath and the medicne... its driving me crazy!

    Unfortunately I can't help, but I'd like to know the answer as well!

    Hmmm, that's interesting. Mine tend to eat them automatically.

    Mind you, saying that, I did have trouble with one of them. I had to keep placing the item right in front of it for it to take any notice.

    Might be a silly question, but do the sours actually enter the garden? Once you reach a certain level they'll appear outside your garden, but you have to go a level or two higher than that before they actually visit. When they do visit, just try putting them item right in front of them.

    Don't ask about taming the Cocoadile though, causing me a whole lot of grief right now.

    I'm completely addicted to this game!

    pinataisland.info is your friend

    to tame a sour cocoadile, you need a sweetooth and two swananas. attracting a sweetooth is easy (grow a fir tree, some waterlillies, and have a reasonable size pond), but swananas are a real pain - they require a whopping 25% of your garden to be water, and to eat 2 sandwiches (transformed bread). your best bet therefore is to attract a sweetooth "normally", but to build a new garden purely to attract swananas - you can then use gretchen fetchem to pull in the required pinata (once they've been resident once in a garden), and the cocoadile should head straight towards them & munch

    as for other sours, some are more cooperative than others - the sherbat is a right pain, whilst the shellybean pretty much heads straight for the required items

    as suggested, your best bet is to keep trying to move the jack o' lantern in front of them. eventually they'll walk on the pumpkin, past it, turn round, and eat it.

    Yeah, you can already have multiplayer VP, where you both share the camera and controls, but I've heard they're bringing a similar functionality to xbox live.

    I actually found moving the items don't really make them eat it, they can notice across the garden a particular thing and go for it, it's not just stuff right in front of their noses.

    My pumpkin that I transformed was the maximum growth pumpkin and he went straight for it, so maybe that makes a difference.
