This newbie is stuck
First of all, I'd like to say that I am very impressed with this game. The graphics are awesome, and the gameplay is compelling.
However, I am completely stuck at the very beginning of the game. The only spell I've learned is the shield spell. I can't seem to move anything or kill anything, and the furthest I've gotten is the Song Cave. I have not been able to figure out the correct song to open the special door in that cave.
I can't get around any of the rocks that are blocking my access to other parts of the game, nor work the controls for the various doors that I have encountered (i.e., those things with the big pearls in them).
I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but I've been over every inch of the areas I can reach multiple times, and I'm making no progress. Probably the most exciting thing I've done is ride the seahorse...
Any small hints you can give to get me unstuck would be much appreciated.
