I too would like some hints on what they are. I know for certain that one of 'em isn't for dying.

I have no idea about the 2nd secret medal, but the rest of them are related to hard mode. Just have lots of patience, and you'll be fine.

New game, all medals work fine. Help function is included, if you get stuck.

The second one is the only one I do have :). But indeed, what is hard mode?

EdyKel spilled the beans already, but I think it's worth explaining how I found it.

Usually when I finish a game (reach "The End" screen/zone or the equivalent), I run a check on all the medals that I've gotten. In this case, I've noticed I didn't get any of the secret medals! So being the guy that liked to disect the crap out of anything, I decided to find out what happened if I kept on going "inwards" beyond the plug to buy Closure on the PS3. Eventually, I found the beginning of the game again, but alas the rooms were empty, presumably because I already cleared it out the first go.

Then I thought: "What happens if I restarted the game, and went backwards immediately?"

Immediately after appearing in the boss room, I was in "oshiet" mode. I noticed the boss was faster, the music was playing backwards/inverted (I dunno), and the squares were spamming tons of bullets. Not one to pass up a challenge, I went ahead and played the game to completion this way.

I took the easy route to complete hard mode....

Just putting the word out: anyone still interested in the war of the web martian medal should get a level 9 launchpad ready. Last round kong won by a stupidly large margin, but after some players crossed over NG is now leading, and the current round should end in a couple of days, so get ready!

Don't need it, but I'll help out with the research points.

: : The medals for this game are not working for me. Has anybody received them? Are they broken?


I believe the authors says he knows about the problem and will fix it, and add more, the next time he updates the game.

The medals are still broken for this game two weeks later. :(

I played it a few days ago, but no medals. The author says that he will try to fix them with the next update, but I'm not going to hold my breath for it.

Overkill medals are broken. I just overkilled something by 64 non-element damage, just to be absolutely sure.

Damage via move command is calculated by taking the attacker's attack stat minus the defender's defense stat. If the result is 0 or less, it becomes 1 instead. Defend and critical hit modifiers apply once the result is obtained, reducing or increasing the damage by 50% or 200% respectively. If the resulting damage goes below 1, it is effectively blocked.

I'm not sure how element damage is calculated, although based on the elemental spirits, it seems apparent that the defense works on a percent basis. For what it's worth, a 5 force 10 element earth sword used by a 23 attack Dash deals 16 earth damage to the first Dragon (-25 earth resistance) on extreme mode.

I managed to unlock Special Overkill, Hyper Overkill and Perfect Overkill. I didn't try for the other ones, so I'll have to take your word for it on those being broken. But the other ones are possible it seems.

On that note, I managed to unlock Heal Apprentice in the game, but it didn't register in my medals, so I'm not sure if that one's busted or not.

Yeah my bad. It's just Apprentice, Veteran, and Master that are broken.

Really? Same thing happened to me.
