To play the Claw Machine Puzzle, you have to pay a fee of 10 Rupees each time you play around. The game has items like rare Heart Pieces, gems which give you currency when you pick them, Magic Powder, and a Yoshi Doll as well.

The doll pulls you in a quest which makes you interact and exchange items with characters and you get a reward for it at the very end.

There is a set amount of price over the gems like the purple gem is worth rupees 50 and you can grab it easily since it is in the first row of the game set up.


If you are only here for that gem then take it and leave the game which will reset the game and now the purple gem will appear again for you to pick it up and if you want, repeat the process.

This is actually one of the best ways to farm money very quickly.

When you start the game, as said above, you have to pay a fee of 10 Rupees then you see the game set up where there are two rows which are topped with items.

Now the front row does not move at all so getting items from here is fairly simple and easy. The row behind is a bit troublesome as it moves horizontally and you have to push your claw down to pick up the items like that.

There are two buttons, X and A. A is used to move the claw horizontally on the set up while X is used to move the claw diagonally. Move the claw by pressing and set it over your prize and then shoot the claw down and pick up your prize.

You will see a green light telling you that the claw is approaching the prize and once you get it, you get to keep it.

The row behind, since it moves, can be a little difficult to handle but, its movement is not that fast so when you move the claw above your prize, predicting the movement of the prize will be easy.

Wait for it to reach near the claw and release it so it can capture the prize. In case you do not have money to play the game, you can always check out as near the Trendy Game.

There is grass which you can cut with your sword in order to farm money and this will allow you to play the game a few more times, and if you play it well, you will be able to make more money out of it.
