3) Redecorate the flat.
4) Sing a bit more.
5) Not die.
In my previous fishy adventure, you may recall I got murked by a fat fish, whom I designated "Tubbs". After becoming a fire daemon fish lady, I was determined to get my revenge. It would be the last time Tubbs bullied the ocean folk. I was to be the hero of Home Springs.
|We meet again.|
|Take this! and that! and this!!|
|YES! IN YOUR FACE...oh.|
Anyhow. Back to the quest. Which is... erm. I can't really remember. I start by swimming through the myriad of underground cave networks in Home Springs. Each area is pretty much empty, give or take a few food ingredients and enemies. I revisit the Energy Temple. But don't really find anything worth writing about.
In my desperation, I swim all the way back to the start of the game. There's a rock, which I can drag with my song, which, after dislodging, reveals a spiky object. After interacting with the object, I'm told its a seed for my flat....
I swim towards her and morph to daemon mode. Well, that's what I had intended to do. Instead I picked up a rock. Song fail. This time I use the right note combination. We begin to duel.
Her super strong shell repels all of my fire assaults, though she can take damage in the face; I concentrate my attacks there. Weirdly the rock I'm dragging round is actually proving to be of assistance. Occasionally Michelle dives at me and hits the rock, taking damage. Noob.
She starts to flash red at one point, I know the fight is nearly over.
|Rock + Fishwoman beats fish thing hiding inside rock...|
|So er....I'm err...about your parents...lets get some ice cream eh!|
Finally.......I find a pearl that fits a orb slot thing, that opens a door when I fill it with fire. I swim on to "Open Waters". Yay!
I'm not entirely sure where I'm meant to go...first I seem to swim into a fish graveyard, that has a humanoid skeleton with a crown on it.
|Great Underwater Bake Off.|
I swim about a bit more and find an cathedral, which seems to have seen better days. There's weird pulsating flesh attached to the walls, which looks very familiar to another game...probably best not touch it.
I swim deeper into the cathedral and discover this ballbag.
|Eyes to meet you! (Urgh.....sorry.)|
Et voilà. It's down. I took a bit of damage in the fight, but now that I remember I have my shield, I seem to be doing much better. After it dies, a tentacle is removed from a gateway I've not even seen yet. Two tentacles remain, which means two more of these things to fight.
After trashing some pots and having a sit down....
Sure enough, it's in the one area I haven't been yet. I seem to have done this the wrong way round. I guess I was meant to find this first...then wonder how to open it. I guess I'm too efficient. This gateway leads me to a series of strong currents, full of the same pulsating flesh. This must be leading to the "heart" of the cathedral corruption. Which can only mean one thing.
After the currents stop, I'm allowed to rest. Based on my efforts the last time round, I decide its best to stock up on food for the impending boss battle. In this play through I have learnt how to make the following:
- Swamp cake (basically a cake from the swamp...)
- Perogi (basically a mistranslation of Pierogi...)
- Healing poultice (basically a healthy thing...)
- Poison loaf (basically poisoned bread...)
- Tough cake (basically a stale cake...)
- Rotten cake (basically a...rotten cake...)
What do you think awesome reader? I should continue on, right? You want to hear more about the recipes I collect don't you??!
