(The following have been deduced from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.)
I have decided to have some of these examples displayed in screenshots instead. The context may become more clear.
Stop! The floor is of ice! (I think Boden would be the word for "floor" or "ground".)
schmelzen = to melt
But in this context, "Boden" would actually be closer to "bottom". "The 'hint' is hidden at the bottom of the pot." (I really don't know what Wegweiser would really be... and the "dem" that precedes "Boden" may be a different form of the article--ie, one that may be used as the adjective of an object of a preposition when it is masculine, considering the "Boden" in the first example is preceded by "der".)
