I set off last night to find out what was beyond a boulder dropping enemy in one of the castles I'd previously passed on. I took some time to prepare and made my way back. Unfortunately, I didn't prepare enough, and needed to go further back to buy another K-Key. I'm sure there's something to be said about the keys being Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, but I can't think of anything. In any case, luck wasn't with me last night as I didn't find the ring in that castle.
|All this trouble for an Elixir... the punchline is I die shortly before getting to it|
Feeling well prepared for the final assault I start looking for the final ring that will unlock the last area, and the boss. Already knowing it lies in the hands of a guru I keep my eyes peeled, and find him without much effort. As luck would have it though, he doesn't give me a ring. It seems he's under an event lock, so I go exploring more.
Eventually I find a dragon, and what's that I hear... boss music? It seems this is the Dwarf King that swallowed the Dragon Slayer in order to keep it safe from the Evil One (and me).
|I choose you... Grieve!|
With the "key" to the final area, I head off to defeat the Evil One in his Evil Place. The last area is truly evil, in maze form. Finding the Evil One is the hardest part of the game. In fact, once I did find him--myself prepared for a long battle, 4 healing potions at the ready--he lasted all of 10 seconds.
|For the final boss, let's make him look like all the enemies in one|
|The world always heals so quickly|
Session Time: 1h03m (Total: 4h51m)
P.S. Having finished this game early in the night, I decided to finish up Dungeon Explorer. It only took another hour, and I had completed both games. With two short games out of the way, I hope that the next few provide a little more depth.
Also, for those that want to see the game in a bit less time, there's a speedrun for this game too. Clocking in at 30 minutes, I do suggest checking this one out. Even if you hadn't played the game before I think it's entertaining enough to watch considering all the planning and execution that went into making it. Once again, it's hosted at Speed Demos Archive.
