Battle: You will see a counter underneath your player, this
is the number of "moves" that you have. For Atarishyn,
1 point is needed to move one space, and x is needed to issue
an attack. (The bigger the weapon you have, the move "x"
is). The other characters are NPC, so it's kind of irrelavent
(you'll figure it out).
Other things: In each town, there are guys in long overcoats
in either the bar or Inn, they allow you to Warp from town
to town (20 gold). For instacen, if you are in the third town,
you can warp to the first and second (via a horse drawn carriage!),
so long as you've "been" there.
In the second town, there are 2 interesting things. A casino,
and a "training" gym. The Casino allows you to play
2 games, one is a Shoot-the-darts-at-moving-things game, the
other is a slot machine game. Always save before playing ..
. if you loose, just restore.
The training thing is weird. It's mainly a place to build
up some Exp. You have 3 options (Easy, medium and Hard). Once
you've done the Hard training 5 times (or something?), you
can no longer use the facility. I found no other use other
than Exp build up.
Pesky guards who will not let you pass. . .
I went back and forth between towns, talking to every person
in the BARs. Next, I went into item shop NE of guy's house
who we thought was the key (town directly east of pesky guards).
Talk to girl, man will come out of back room and give you
something. Go to the 2 guards and answer yes. Your next move
will be to speak to the 2 guards on south end of "guards
palace". Could not open the 2 doors in this area. Next,
you will be thrown out by the guards into this new area.
Go south. New town. Talk to all, and especially the bartender.
Answer all his questions, then the guy on the left in the
bar will let you enter door. Now, you can enter the temple
northwest of town. After that talk to all. In a NE house there
is a bookcase. Go up to it and it will open and allow to talk
to a whole bunch of people. You'll lose a member. Go southeast
to a new town. In the bottom right house is where is most
important. You'll gain a new character. Upon leaving house,
new member will open up new area to the east.
Follow your map. Don't bother to go to dead end areas before
reaching the next town (see NOTE below). Talk to townspeople,
then go SW to cave. Follow the green poisonous slime of the
scorpion. I wandered around and found nothing. Eventually,
the area will be blocked with fallen rocks. Circle around,
going left and up and right to resume the green slime trail.
Long cinema after finding bloody dude. Scorpion boss is next.
Back to town. In the lower right house, a girl will diappear.
After trying to exit town, you are stopped, cinema, and then
sent back to previous town. NOTE: There is an area west of
scorpion town that I did not survey. It was a dead end on
the map, so I hit the town first. Was not able to go there
again. Perhaps you might want to continue west and check out
before doing the cave bit.
Talk to all, then proceed the town in the NW (the first town
you entered after the guards threw you out). Again talk to
all, proceed to NE cave. A guard will join your party. Enter
the previously locked gate. You will have to enter the palace.
A guy blocks your way if go NE. This area is not hard, but
you will fight often. On the 4th floor is the boss. Should
you go to floor 5 first, people there will push you back toward
4th fl. After boss, floor 5 people will let you exit. Leave
this palace and go back to the town where we spent a lot of
time while we were stuck with those pesky guards. The dude
that transports you no longer allows access to the first two
towns. Interesting. Hopefully, we're done with those areas.
Now, go into the temple-like structure NE of town. We've been
here before but the monsters are back. You will find a treasure
chest you cannot open. Come back later. Eventually, you will
enter a cell with a guard. Now, respond with answer #2 both
times. You fight. Respond with answer #2. Fight more. You'll
be given something, and the entire temple is now freed of
monsters. Proceed and you will meet with 3 people at the exit.
After speaking with them, proceed to town. Noone is there.
Go to the house in the SW corner. Proceed to the big room
where we fought a boss way back when. Read the map on the
table. Exit room and go right to a table. A cinema, and you
will find yourself walking in a secret passage. Fight the
boss. Now comes the tricky part.
After this, the townsfolk are back. I warped to every town,
spoke to everyone, and eventually one of the two woman inthe
town that's directly south of the bridge (directly right of
the guy who we thought was the key to get past those pesky
guards) gave me something. At this point I had no luck at
crossing the bridge, entering the east forest area (where
the girl says something and pushes you back), nor the guard
standing in front of the castles entrance. Proceed all the
way back to the town that you had to use your map to navigate
(scorpion town). In the SW corner a guy joins your party (now
you have 5 people).
Go back to town immediately west of the entrance to this forest
area. Someone in a house will "do" something. Here
is where I travelled for hours. (go back to the Indian's father's
house, and "search" the bookcase) Go back to scorpion
town, go SW to the cave entrance and proceed to the east.
A whole new area opens up. Use your map to plot the best way
to the temple. Don't bother to check dead ends, as I did and
nothing was ever there. The little houses ytou see on the
map are actually "healing wells". Go to temple talk
to woman, proceed outside and you be warped back to entrance
of forest area. Try going now to the area east of the castle
that we could not enter because of the girl. You should be
able to enter. If not, then talk to everyone in all the towns.
Proceed to house. Ignore dead ends. Enter upper right doorway.
Make sure you "touch" all 5 emblems on the wall.
The tombstone gives you the clue to successfully open the
door with the switches. After reading the tombstone and touching
all the emblems, go to the locked gate with the 5 emblems
on the floor. Use the sequence of colors that are on the bottom
of the tombstone writing and step on the switches in that
color order. Fight dragon, then approach crystal ball on pedestal.
Item appears. It seems that the text indicates that you have
finished an area ...at least that was my assumption. After
warping back, I spoke to everyone in all towns, but nothing
happened, so you might as well go to the bridge. A fight ensues,
and it's clear to roam. Also, you can go back to the previous
area. The guard is still blocking entrance to the castle,
Go to building (won't allow you to go anywhere else). Straightforward
maze, kill bad guy, now you can roam entire area. Go to town.
Someone dies, speak to everyone. This is what I did next..went
to lake west of town. Picked up item at the bottom. Went SW
to area that contained a sword. I switched items, and equipped
the 2 characters. If you go all the way SW, you will not be
allowed entrance. Go back to town. Go back to lake, and go
to bottom where sword was. Get 3000 dollars. Directly NW of
town is now a cave. Use you map. No problem here. Fight 3
scorpions. I was at level 80 by now. Go to dude's house. Read
all 7 lines. Funny, he keeps moving around. After that, he'll
be outside. Talk, go back in house and continually talk to
him. He eventually disappears. I'm still not sure if this
is good or not, but I did it anyway. Go back to town. The
guard rejoins your party, and it is now up to 5 again.
Now head all the way SW and you can enter new area. I like
this part. It was cool the way the guys got into the castle.
Go to the right hand entrance when you go into this castle.
Throw switch, go back up left side. Enter a new maze. Use
your map. Eventually, there will be a boss in the southeast
part of a floor. Cool sequence. After winning battle, another
one starts. After winning, you will now be allowed access
south of this castle.
Go to town. Guy joins your party. He is weak, and can't be
upgraded. Don't bother. The other characters can gain good
defense here. Go to the north cave. Easy. Back to town and
your old character rejoins the party. After exiting this house,
go back in and talk to yellow haired dude. He gives you 2
things. Now go to boathouse west of town, and you will be
allowed to cross water to new area.
SW of new boathouse is a cave. Follow map. On first level,
touch all of the columns to trigger opening of new entrance.
Also, there will be 2 torches. Come back to them after defeating
the boss, because an entrance will appear here. You end up
on another island, fighting a group of dudes. OK....after
winning the fight, I returned to the boathouse, hoping to
see if I could get into castle, or into the area desert. Guess
what! The dude at the boathouse denies you the boat! But double
check when you reach this point.
OK, you're on the new island now. No inn, weapon or item shops
here. Go back to previous town for needs. South is a cave
that you cannot gain entrance yet. Go to the 3 houses in the
NW from your starting point. Next, go to house in SW corner.
As you try to enter, winged creatures attack. Talk to girl.
Directly north of this little temple are rail tracks, and
locked doors. Go back to town, then the cave.
Finish cave, return to town, go back to girl's temple. Door
is unlocked now at end of tracks. Go to blocked wall. Return
to girl. (I returned to town also, but don't think it triggered
anything). Now go back to blocked doors. A tresure chest in
here will give you the 4th selection on the menu that you
use to call up the map. It won't work yet, as it is a warping
New area. North is town. Get better armor/weapons. Go southwest
and will encounter an ugly boss-dude by the water.
Get ready for a looooooong walk. Go back to town to stock
up on those $3000 items that do damage to all the creatures.
Head southwest to new area. You will encounter many mazes
underground, and many battles. Eventually, you'll fight big
bad dude. After this fight, you will be warped to land. You
can now use warp. Go to 2nd town on warp menu and visit the
castle south. Nice cinema. Now, here's where things got cloudy.
I visited every town, every cave, starting with the 1st town
on the warp menu. When you visit the town that you got to
when you crossed the bridge (the one where there is a grave
directly west), go to the cave NW. Go to the house that is
in the NW area. You'll warp there right after you answer yes
in the cave. The guy talks to you.
By now, all I did was warp around and around and around......
OK...here is where I possibly found a sub-quest. If you want
to bypass this part, go to next paragraph. If doesn't work,
then do the following: Warp to the next to last town on the
warp menu You'll pick up a 5th character and lose your warping
abilities (for now), so don't panic like I did. Go east and
find a cave. Get treasure (equip new dude), and head south.
See the torches...cannot proceed. Exit cave and go all the
way east and find another cave. Get to room with robot, treasure
chest, warp device and a big metal container. Open treasure
chest, and go back to the other cave. There'll be torch opening,
open treasure chest, return to other cave and fight bad dude.
The blue warp device does not work, but you now have your
warping ability back. Warp back to town.
Now, go to the town that has the grave marker to the west,
and the cave to the NW (the town right after the bridge).
Head SW, and go back in front of the structure that earlier
your army climbed the ropes to get over the moat. Proceed
west (remember you couldn't enter this area?), and look at
your map for an area that looks out of place (green squares)
and head there-SW). There will be girl, she joins your party.
I warped to towns now and stocked up..lose your warp soon.
Now, go NE from this girl and grave marker. You will see a
patch of green on the map. Once there, will be 3 palm trees
and a tile. As you approach, a winged creatures attacks. Head
to NW opening.
From here, it's simply follow the mazes. Eventually, you'll
come outside and proceed to bottom of lake. Here, you get
the "sword". Go NE to new opening. Here it becomes
interesting. After cinema, touch every- thing in room as you
are a girl. Proceed south of room, and find all your characters.
Go back to rooms that were immediately east and west of this
room, and stock up on armor/weapons/items. Exit either side
and more treasure chests. Boss is nearing.
Last boss changes to high powered dude after killing him the
first time. (but he's a wimp!)
G O O D L U C K!
