Before you can take root for all the corruption in Chicory: A Colourale Tale, chicory awaits you by passing four Wielder exams to strengthen your bond with Paintbrush. You have already completed the Wielder Temple Trial, so now you will need to go to the four corners of Picnic Providence to complete them.
You can choose these tests in any order, but you will have to find the places yourself. Our advice is to start with the next exam and we will show you how to get there.
From lunch you will want to go southeast on the map. Instead of going to Gulf Swamp in the lower right corner, go to Supper Woods, which is one of the first places you went in the game. Traversal will be much easier if you can now swim, jump and climb. There are several ways to get to Banquest Rainforest via Supper Woods, but the main idea is to continue driving down and to the right. Finally, you get to the screen with the trees blocking the path on the right. Now that you can swim, walk around these trees. On the next screen on the right, climb up to the top screen.
The Banquest Rainforest introduces you to these plants, which act as moving platforms and lifts. You can paint them to move the way you want – press the center light to lift or press one of the leaves to point in the direction you want to go in that direction. If the plant shakes, it cannot go any further and retracts the next time it is painted. You will need to use these plants in your first attempt to collect at least four Brushflowers.
Keep in mind that this is the most emotional test for Chicory because of the story, and although this guide describes the best order of tests in terms of distance, it can be a good test that you can keep to last. From the beginning of Banquet Rainforest you will want to go to the left screen using the flower platform. From this screen, keep moving by jumping down the cliffs. Once you reach the crossroads, flood right. Follow this path until you reach Teatime Meadows; You should see Hummus sitting by a tree. Swim across the river and go up the screen.
Continue until you see a bridge, an exploding ball and a few stones that you must destroy. Sail across the platform where the ball is so you can push. Destroy all the stones and then you will want to go to the right screen. You have arrived in the charming town of Brekkie on the far east side of Picnic, but in reality you will want to go all the way to the right until you reach the water. To get to Brunch Canyon, you will have to constantly swim down the river until you reach the misty Brunch Canyon, where chicory awaits you.
In the test, you will constantly walk along the river, where you will come across a damaged tree; inside are flames used to destroy branches along the way. Control can be difficult, but guide the flames with a brush through the walls and on land, away from the water, where they are immediately extinguished.
For the Northwest Wielder Trial you will want to travel quickly to Elevenses. From the Transit Bench of Elevenses, slide one screen up. From there, follow the river to the right – the left path will take you to Simmer Springs instead. You will want one screen on the right and the other screen down to be on the right side of the mirror, which you can easily swim at this point. You may have noticed holes that geyse the color if you use a brush on them. You can travel through these geysers by swimming in them when they fire. Use the geyser to the right and get to the higher ground.
On the next few screens you will ride geysers in tandem and jump into the clouds. You can jump into these clouds and stay in them for a few seconds, indicating that the colors have emptied, so keep jumping between these clouds to get through the gaps. Eventually you will have to climb and reach the chicory at the foot of the mountain. Your main goal for this test is to climb an entire mountain that will include more geysers, clouds and exploding colored balls – the trick in this test is to use the wind to your advantage to help you jump further as it blows hard here and there.
Relatively speaking, Spoons Island should be the easiest test site you can get thanks to your swimming skills. Go south of Potluck and fill the water with color on every screen you reach. Head southwest and find the chicory on the beach of a curved island. After the chicory explains the test, head south to the island.
Eventually you will get to platforms that can be lifted by filling dots on the ground. You will manipulate these platforms to create sequences of light platforms. Be sure not to underestimate your jumping distance and the directions you can jump. The harder part of the test will make you manipulate these platforms to complete the puzzles – basically connecting two black dots at opposite ends of the screen in one continuous line. Take these puzzles on one platform from the first dot to the end.
