Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.


Stage 1 – Complete the game


You will be completing a total of 3 chapters, each with their own themes.
Each level has its own countdown timer. It’s your task to survive until the timer runs out. Each chapter has a total of 6 levels (It’s not required to play all levels). The last 2 chapters are end bosses, which only consists out of fighting that boss.

As these last bosses are quite hard, it’s recommended that you get the following upgrades:

Upgrades
Skin: First one, will boost your dashing ability, making you dash further.
Special Item: Third one, will boost your dashing ability, making you invulnerable.
Weapon: Box 5, as it’s the strongest.
Make sure to equip the items, as this isn’t done automatically.

Farming money is best done in Chapter 1, level 3.


Trophies

 Defeat Giant Flambido
Defeat the Giant Flambido

Found during chapter 1, level 4. It’s a giant slimy that can be killed without too many problems.


 Little Invaders
Complete “Little Invaders” chapter

You will only need to complete levels 1-4, as you will have earned enough stars to challenge the chapter boss.

The final boss, which requires 10 golden stars, has a total of 4 phases.

Phase 1
He will smash the ground. There are indicators on the ground where he will land. Note that his hitbox is bigger than the indicators!

Phase 2
Beside the smashing, there will be spikes falling from the sky. Make sure to dodge them.

Phase 3
In addition to the smashing and spikes, he will be shooting lasers from his eyes. These can be dodges by doing a timed jump.

Phase 4
The same as Phase 3, but in a much faster tempo!

Between each phase, some enemies will spawn. They shouldn’t form any problems.


  Nocturnal Experiments
Complete “Nocturnal Experiments” chapter

You will only need to complete levels 1-4, as you will have earned enough stars to challenge the chapter boss.

The boss has a total of 4 phases, but doesn’t show any real patterns. It’s best to tackle her really aggressive.

Dodge her shock lasers with your dash, then keep attacking her.


 Hell’s Kitchen
Complete “Hell’s Kitchen” chapter

You will only need to complete levels 1-5, as level 5 contains the midboss (oven).
You will need to defeat the final boss, the chef!
He will be flying around, dropping bombs. Make sure to dodge those, while also dodging all the other projectiles. You should hit him with the explosive barrels, as these deal massive damage.

Refer to the video below if you are having trouble.


 The Disclosure
Complete “The Disclosure” chapter

This chapter has a bossfight, with 2 stages. The first bossfight is most likely the hardest for you.

It’s best if you try to charge your special laser. In order to do this, don’t pick up any other special upgrades. The special laser is shown in the bottom right corner.

It’s best if you use your dash do dodge attacks.

Refer to the video below if you are having trouble with the first phase.


 Stairway to Death
Complete “Stairway to Death” chapter

The final chapter you will be fighting the Magic Book. He has multiple phases, but the good thing is that each phase has its own save point!

You will be shooting him, then making your way up. This will happen a total of 3 times, until you defeat it the third time. The magic book is a lot easier than the boss from “The Disclosure” (previous chapter).


 Perfect Level
Unlock a level with 3 stars

Save 3 classmates on any level and you will earn 3 stars. It’s highly recommended that you save all 3 classmates on all levels, anyhow.


 Defeat Living Oven
Defeat the Living Oven

This boss can be found in chapter 3, level 5. Go stand on the left side of the levels and keep shooting the oven. The only thing you need to do is dodge his projectiles. If it shoots left, step right and shoot back.
If it shoots right, walk left and stop shooting.

Keep in mind that you just need to survive for the duration of the timer, and that damage isn’t important.


 The Beginning
Complete the tutorial

The tutorial will explain to you the basics, such as walking, dashing, shooting and the special weapons.


 Defeat Giant Toad
