Time for the danger boat to retire & the aircraft carrier to break records.
In this game you have to use the helipad to visit areas and play a mini game to collect animals for your zoo.
These animals then generate income for you so you can visit the helipad again & constant loop. You get the idea now...
You can use Disco bux to start a disco & your income will double for a certain time. Occasionally you will be given tasks to find strayed animals across your zoo or given the opportunity to sell an animal for more cash.
A new update has added a few new areas you can visit like Acid Caves, Space Trip (for which you need to create a ticket in the factory) & Lucky Hit (Which so far for me has not prove lucky).
There I met an elder who explained I was created by the moonbloods from the souls of two people. Jin (Ginger's brother) & an assassin called Cassius. General Gaius knew of the village and was planning an attack so it was time for the final showdown.
You have to fight quite a few soldiers in this volcanic region before you come face to face with General Gaius, it is quite a tough boss fight because it has quite a few stages. I had to use up nearly all of my healing items to ensure I would not die.
Unfortunately it is not only General Gaius who meets his end has Dust perishes in the lava. An enjoyable metroidvania type of game with great voice acting for the main characters.
Next on the list to complete Army of Two Devils Cartel.
I already have a stack load of 360/PS3 (PS+) games to play without having another console that I won't play (No, I'm not looking at the PS4).
I'll continue playing Dust & Army of Two. When they are completed I will finish off Dishonoured & start Knack.
I also have Deus Ex Human Revolution & Mass Effect 3 to enjoy whilst waiting for the reviews of Infamous Second Son. Hopefully some news from Ubisoft over the next few weeks on the fate of Watch_Dogs will also make me use the PS4. Which is not being neglected by the boys who are happily playing Fifa 14.
1st on all three leaderboards for Danger Boat
Best Score is 43,765
Best Distance is 1,768
Total Distance is 181,505
Make sure you are connected to Game Center before you start playing otherwise the game will not update the leaderboards if you manage a good score.
I have now fully upgraded the Turbo power & need to complete another 11 daily challenges to unlock the Aircraft Carrier.
The sorrowing meadows introduces a few new enemies, most notably zombies but the Necromancers are tough because they can only be attacked by using Fidget's abilities. I completed a second mansion & then exited the map to revisit some of the earlier locations like the Glade & Abadis Forest to reach areas with my new climb ability.
That was all I had time for this weekend, I will continue to revisit the earlier locations like the Caverns & Hidden Cove to see if I can complete those areas before returning to The Sorrowing Meadows to visit the remaining two mansions.
The explosion also opened up access to the Cirromon Caverns & the village of Mudpot below Aurora. In the caverns I found a new ability to crouch slide (just like metroid, you slowly get the skills to revisit areas & progress further) which is perfect for getting through tight spaces.
The flow of water has stopped to the village of Mudpot & I venture further deep into the caverns to find "The Lady" who is the next boss fight. She was overcome by Darkness & is now cured by getting her ass kicked by Dust.
With my new skill acquired, some armour upgrades & a ton of sidequests completed I can now venture to the Northern mountains & here starts Chapter 3 Love.
The pick now only offers an upgrade of +2 & requires a lot of cash before you can upgrade.
Avoiding all these whilst collecting coins & powerups will rack up your score. You can then spend the acquired gold in the shop purchasing boosts, upgrades or new boats.
By completing various missions you can increase your multiplier, some of these are challenging like a high score target.
My current stats are
Best Distance 1,364
Best Score 14,040
But I had to try at least once to see what treasure I would get from a rainbow chest.
You also need 17 coins to unlock a chest which you can get from completing bonus missions or exchanging rubies.
Super Bomb was my reward 100% more bomb crates with 15% more power.
The game has a mission based structure with some taking longer than others (especially if we die & have to respawn to the last checkpoint). There have been some nice gameplay moments which include a nice driving section with the other player on a mounted gun & a slide down a hallway with a building exploding (reminds of some gameplay I saw on Bulletstorm).
The game seems to have done away with the back to back feature from the previous game which had you taking out a large number of enemies whilst having your back to your co-op partner.
Earlier in the game there was a mission set in the past in which we rescued a hostage named Fiona who we now meet up five years later & she informs us of the cartel's hideout which is in a church.
The app has now been updated to fix the gamecentre leaderboards & I managed to get a higher depth score of 267.
Stupidly wasted my rubies in the game to get deeper when I should have used them to purchase more chest keys.
Next target is to get to 300.
Working my way through the many digital releases on XBLA & PS+ to see if anything bites. Disappointed by the checkpoints in Outland & scared witless with Outlast.
I really wanted Deadlight to be a metroidvania/shadow complex style of game but this is where Dust Elysian Tail ticks all the boxes. Lovely characters with great voice-acting & great gameplay.
You play Dust who wakes up with forgotten memories & his greeted by a sword & it's companion Fidget. They accompany you towards the nearest village which is infested by monsters. After you save the village the mayor asks you to go to another nearby village where the monsters commander is based.
You get given various quests from the town dwellers which open up more of the world map for you to explore.
The monsters leader Fuse is a Moonblood creature who are victims of a genocide by a man known as General Gaius. Fuse also tells Dust that he was a soldier in this war. I now have a quest to go to the northern mountains to find more information about the general.
I am waiting for more skills to unlock so I can revisit some areas which I can't at the moment reach.
Looking forward to seeing where the story evolves & what new skills unlock.
