Stage 1 – Complete the game
Tails of Iron is a linear game full of story elements. Each objective is shown on the interactive mini-map, which displays various things. You can find waypoints, missions, and savepoints on the map.
You’ll be spending around 8 hours completing the game. During this game, you will face various foes and bosses. The combat can be a bit challenging and some bosses can prove quite tough. That’s the reason the difficulty is rated 6/10, but you could find it harder or easier, depending on your combat skills.
There are a few trophies you need to keep an eye on:
– Complete the Chef’s Book
Most of the food is found during the story, for some you need to talk to NPCs and complete little quests.
– Complete Redgi’s Armoury
You’ll need to find all weapons and armors in the game. You’ll find about 80% just by completing the game. The other 20% are found by entering all rooms in the game. There are no hidden treasures, everything is in plain sight or buried, but it will show up clearly when you enter rooms.
Be sure to check the map from time to time, in order to get your waypoints! Another great tip is to save at each blue lanturn you encounter, otherwise, you’ll be respawned at your latest checkpoint upon death!
Upon completing the story you will be able to explore the world, so don’t worry about missing any trophies.
