Speaking Parseltongue

Speaking Parseltongue

I'm at the part where you play as Riddle and you're chasing Aragog, but I'm stuck at the snake statue. How do I make him speak Parseltongue? I tap on the statue but nothing happens, and I can't tap the icon at the bottom either.

Guest answered:

If you look at the lower screen there should be a snake icon. If so you need to hiss into the microphone of your DS. If there is no icon try tapping the statue again. it will appear but it is small.

Guest answered:

when the symbol appears, hiss into the microphone

Guest answered:

Yes i was stuck on this for awhile too. When you are in range of the snake statue it should have a green highlight around it. When you tap it a little pentogon with a small snake in it will apear at the bottem of your screen. This means you will have to hiss(or just blow) into the microphone and the things blocking the archway will fall through a trap door and you will be able to get through the arch. You will have to speak parssle tounge alot nearing the end of the tom riddle level and neart he end of the actual chamber of secrets level,but instead of a statue there will be snake symbols on the walls and floors that you will have to tap and speak parssle tounge with. Hope it helped!

I can't get past this WHATSOEVER! No matter how hard or gentle I blow or hiss into the microphone I can't get past the duel with ,alfoy in year two! O-O

Guest answered:

If you can't get it to work try closing your ds a couple of times and give it some force. It worked for me at least.

no go to game stop
Guest answered:

I played this game on the DS and I found that if you pause it for a couple seconds, then unpause it, it works. I'm not sure if this is how it is supposed to work or not but it worked for me.

Guest answered:

To use the snake statue you need to blow into the microphone on your DS/DSI/DSIXL. Then whatever the parseltongue is for will work, if not try again,then continue to try until it works. There will probibaly be a clip to show you what is being done with parseltongue.

944bthare10 answered:

To use parseltongue you half to blow into the microphone on your DS/DSI/DSIXL. There will probibaly be a brief little video to show you what is going on by using parseltongue. If it does not work continue to try until it does work properly.
