Not sure how far you need to get or what else you need to do to "finish" the second game.

I think the distance needed was either 22500 or 25000. I can't really remember but it should be somewhere around that.

Yeah, my guess would be 25000 as 22500 seems a bit too close to 20k. Also, there is no real end or finish. You just need to get lucky.

Dunno, but I think if you stick to one team you'll be fine. I used 2 archers and 2 swordsman, and if you go through every enemy on each floor you always seem to stay ahead of the difficulty curve. Loot everything and keep an eye on the "suggest" button on the inventory, it's really useful.

Actually, the way I played it will easily net you 14/16 medals. For the last one and the completionist medal you definitely need a healer in your time. Since you need your entire party to be lvl10 for the completionist medal, it will take a shitload of time anyway. Enough time to experiment on your own, that is.

Yeah, I'm finding that clerics are weaker healers than archers, and that magic spells have pretty crappy scaling. By scaling, I mean how well it gains in power as you level up. I suppose if you want sheer damage via area of effect spells, then there's no better than the mages. A notable exception is the Conjuror's Disintegrate spell, as it seems to work on bosses, and it only costs 20 power.

All things considered, I wouldn't mind hoarding all of the equipment that gives you bonuses when getting healed (suffix "Recovery"). I've only found one, but it was on a medium armor that gave +30 healing bonus when the user gets healed. Flash heal and Intercession suddenly got very good xD

It's certainly not 22,5k, as I got to 24k and didn't get the end. I think it's somewhere between 25 and 30k.

It's pretty easy to get a high score in that game. Shoot high, and hope to land on a trampoline with an accelerator the first two times. With that you can easily get over 40k.

The game spawns its obstacles based on time, not on distance/length. So if you go really slow you'll get lots of accelerators and bumpers in relation to distance. This makes recovering from going slow easy, while recovering from going too low impossible. Try to get a high start, so you won't be in any trouble.

Also, high highscore time?

Nice score. But I think all the other stuff you mentioned in regards to going high instead of long is just guessing. I tried everything and I'm 100% sure it's just luck. Anyway, I can confirm that getting 'The End' medal, for making it to the finish, is indeed 25,000. Since I ended up with 25,173. Good Luck everyone.

It's not a medal for just simply watching the movie. Is that what you have only been doing?

Is Level 18 impossible to beat? It seems like it's missing a block. Asandir and I have tried everything to beat this level with no success.

And this one is ridiculous it will take ages to get the medals because your stats don't save after each attempt. Everything resets to Zero and that's just crazy. Admittedly the medals are worth 100 points a piece but there's hard and then there's silly hard. Because of the lack of a stat save feature this game fits into the silly hard category.

Seems pretty straight forward to me? 2 short jumps at the edges of the level and you should be just fine.

The score ones are very doable, if you grind the blue dots your multiplier goes up really fast. Problem seems to be the level medals, 30 seems very hard to reach.

To even even one is a huge accomplishment.

It's hard to describe thew magnitude to get the multiplier which may have been the easiest one of the bunch. For that to happen, I took tons of risks by having my aura getting scraped by projectiles while squeezing through the blue dots as well. It's that tough.

Well nevermind. I just lost my difficulty mod, QQ. It's kinda strange, but I think you can save progress if you buy your stuff, then quit before finishing another round.

The game does seem a bit intensive, seeing how a lot of things use graphic effects and it runs on 60 fps in a large window. On my budget gaming desktop, I have hardware acceleration enabled too. I can get mostly consistent 60 fps when I dim the lights, but otherwise it sporadically lags and slows down.

The 150 multiplier medal does work. Try again.

Meh, no thanks. It's not that I find the game so interesting that I feel like sitting there for another half hour when I'm not sure whether it will work for me this time.

Some observations about survival mode (aka Act IV):
-- It's definitely time-consuming to reach wave 30.
-- While the earlier waves have limited monsters, expect to face full waves of 6 monsters.
-- There are boss waves! If you really hated the bosses in the Demons Nest, have fun!
-- The next wave will not arrive until you kill everything. Therefore, when there's only one monster left, take the time to regenerate your health and power. Skipping your turn deliberately immediately grants you 10 power for half an action.
-- Chances are you haven't see everything that the monsters are capable of. For example, if you get killed by the Nexus Engine's Void Cannon, you don't leave behind a corpse, thus leaving no chance of an in-battle resurrection. Sucks. Therefore, think very carefully about your strategy when attempting the run, and try to cover as many bases as possible.

I'm currently taking a break and haven't finished the run yet. If I'm victorious, then I'll post what I did and what my strategy was.

Success. The ending was very hilarious xD

Total run time was 88 minutes. The enemies progress in difficulty by 1 level every 10 waves. For example, if you started with level 19 enemies, you'll face level 20 enemies on wave 10, and lvl 22 enemies on wave 30.

I used these guys for my strategy:

-- Hadrian, Warrior - Champion
Tank, and solo front-liner. Basically, he's decked out in armor, health regeneration, and retaliation damage. He can protect his allies with his passive, and if things get pretty heated, he can use Shield Wall to draw all enemy fire.

-- Croca, Warrior - Captain
His main purpose is two-fold: to support the tank, and to support the entire party. Since my tank has crappy power regeneration and quickness, the support can help boost his power regeneration with the skill Push Harder (the tank has this skill too, but he can't use it on himself). The health cost is minor compared to my party's healing output. Hold the Line can also assist the tank in his tanking duties. And if any of the enemies pull a fast one by repositioning my guys, he can call for a party reformation. His power costs are minor, so I don't need to worry about that. Last but not least, he can use his passive Inspire to boost the DPS of my party (he has a polearm equipped), even if he hits my allies. lol.

-- Parthian, Ranger - Marksman
The more offensive of the archer duo. He can pick off enemies in the backline, stun problematic enemies (such as the green and purple demons), and heal in times of dire need. His passive health regeneration covers 80% of his healing needs, so he doesn't have to focus on himself much. If he needs to recharge power, he can use his speedy quickness to pass turns and recharge power that way.

-- Holm, Ranger - Warden
Nearly identical purpose and function as the first archer. However, this one can purge buffs from enemies using the passive Force of Nature, and he also has the revive spell Second Wind.

There are a couple of hitches though. Remember the demon bosses I mentioned? You won't face the Soul Harvester, but you will face the Possessor (mind controller) and the Suborned Champion, both of whom can cause serious problems. The latter can create clones of your party members with similar stats, and the former turns your own party members against each other. Play smart, and you should pull through.
