1. Tap anywhere. The two fish will swim up to Yixiu and wake him up. Pick up his luggage.

2. Tap his knapsack to look at the painting inside and make sure it’s safe.

3. Follow the carp to Moyan. It will wake him. Send Yixiu to Moyan to see if he’s ok. He has a tail!

4. Climb the vines. Climb the stairs. Pick up the stone shard and then meet Miaoshan.

5. Open your knapsack and drag the painting to Miaoshan. He gives you the Skandha Brush. You can now paint things around you!

6. Feel free to read the sign to the left and then head up the stairs to the right. Pick up the maple leaf and continue up to the tree.

7. Use the maple leaf on the maple tree to turn it red. Then go back and report to Master Miaoshan. Take a look at his painting.

8. Now you need to repair the brush. First, head right and eventually a new scene will load.

9. Head left and tap on Miaoshan. They’ll all discuss the woman playing music. Then follow him back to the studio and talk to him again.

10. Head to the backyard. Tap the seal workbench. It will explain how to paint a seal. Paint one. It seems you can probably change it later.

I’ve come to the point where I’m instructed to tap the frame, but it seems nothing happens no matter where I tap!

It is because the frame you think is not the “frame” master talks about. Go to left side of the room and tap semisphere frame. Instructor will then give further instructions. Chinese masters, including my high school teacher, like use such small trick to help his student learn. LOL Hope you like this game.

Ok what about the missing collectable for chapter 2? It looks like it might be shoe or… idk a gourd maybe? I can’t tell just by the silhouette. I’ve played the chapter over and over and can’t find it, I just keep tapping everywhere on the screen and hoping for the best.

It’s definitely a shoe, Jingwei’s shoe from the end cutscene. Another site says the shoe is near the first underwater shrine but I simply can’t find it either.
