Trivia

Minigames

The Nuggets game located in the mines is a clone of the classic arcade game Snake.

Version differences

All of the game's English releases have flaws of their own, but the Target-exclusive release from 2007 in particular should be avoided. In addition to retaining various minor graphical issues introduced in the previous release from 2002, it always crashes when talking to the grandfather clock. This makes the game impossible to complete whenever the flashlight is hidden in the mines.
