Triglav action RPG

Triglav is a single-player action RPG in which the objective is to make it to the top of Triglav Tower, which is 50 floors high. It is an exquisitely detailed effort by SmokymonkeyS and composed in DHTML. Yes, you read that correctly: the game was written almost entirely in Javascript. However, that being said, the developers do rely a little too heavily on Microsoft's own implementation of the DOM (document object model), and therefore the game will run in IE only (v5.5+). Mac users are out of luck, sorry.

If you do have a PC, then that is a relatively small inconvenience to an otherwise exceptional browser-based action RPG experience that looks and plays a lot like Blizzard's Diablo series of games, minus the multiplayer component. Let's dig right in, starting a new game is quick and easy...

TriglavArcade or Career mode: to begin a new game you will first need to choose between arcade and career modes. Both modes feature the same gameplay, except with career mode your game is automatically saved each time you move to a new floor. A username and password are required to begin a career mode game and to reload a saved game.

Choose a character: Daggermaster, Axemaster, or Swordmaster. Each character class has unique weapons, armor and a special attack that sets it apart from the others. For example, if you choose Axemaster, you will have no use for the swords and daggers you may find throughout the game. Once you select a character, the game begins.

Control is entirely with the mouse, click and hold the mouse button down to move. As your character moves the game map will scroll to reveal more of Triglav Tower. Items in your inventory can be used or equipped by clicking on them. Only the weapons, armor, and accessories that are highlighted are equipped. To drop an item, right-click to highlight in red, right-click again to delete. Dropped items cannot be picked up again.

Combat: left click on an enemy to attack it with the currently equipped weapon. Keep clicking until it disappears. When attacking an enemy, its vitality bar will appear in yellow in lower right of the game window for valuable feedback. When the yellow lightning bolt just above that is flashing, your character may use its special attack by right-clicking. Special attacks substantially increase damage and attack range for a short burst of power. Your character must wait about 30 seconds for it to become available again.

Vitality: or health, is represented by the red bar in the lower left of the game window. All characters have auto-healing abilities by simply mousing-over the heart symbol. If you lose all your vitality your character will die and take with it some gold, experience, and a puppet item. If you do not have a puppet item, it is truly game over for your character.

Triglav side questGameplay: Hack and slash your way through each level to find the key that opens the door to the stairway leading to the next floor. Keys are generally found in treasure chests, some of which are left behind after doing away with an enemy or boss. As you progress higher in the tower enemies get tougher and more plentiful based on your experience points; even returning to a lower floor will yield an increase in the number and strength of the creatures that oppose you. Also, you will eventually come upon puzzles and side quests that require solving such as the one shown here. Most of these that I've seen follow a similar pattern: give a particular item to the NPC (non-player character) to earn a new item in return.

Analysis: My jaw quite literally dropped when I came upon Smokymonkeys' website Sunday afternoon. The graphics and effects are stunning and the gameplay is classic action RPG fare. The fact that these talented developers crafted the whole experience using DHTML—and of course some server-side scripting for game saving and stats—is astonishing to me. The game is gorgeous, runs silky smooth on my 1.7GHz PC with GeForce 4 video card, and is a lot of fun to play. The interface is equally beautiful with its emphasis of icons over text descriptions. The artistic style of the entire game is very appealing and quite polished.

Unfortunately, the game lacks background music and sound effects of any kind. Although this was at first bothersome, as I ventured deeper, ascending the tremendous tower of Triglav with all of its glorious eye candy, the missing audio became moot. Besides the lack of sound, there isn't anything else that I would complain about other than the PC/IE requirement, since that means I cannot play on my Mac—and I do just about everything on my Mac of late.

Triglav's project and art design was headed by Koizumi Tota, with design and programming headed by Nakano Sin. It is a personal project of the developers, and it was started more than three (3) years ago. And what an amazing accomplishment it is: truly one of the finest browser-based games I have ever played.

Something I didn't mention in the review: when you find an item, such as a key, it appears in the lower right icon position. That position is called the "treasure viewer" and is not considered part of your inventory.

To move an item to your inventory, left-click on it, but you must have an available space for it.

Keys will disappear from your inventory when you open the door to the next floor.

I actually quite prefer single player games for my side indulgences, I get enough multiplayer games in other ways. Especially with RPGs this is so, like with dofus you start and there are already people a million times stronger then you, and always ready to tell you what to do so it takes out the ambiance and the feeling of personal accomplishment for me.

I was quite sad when I learned that in stick arena you could talk, I was quite good at the game and won every round I played it, but the other players just got on my nerves sometimes.

So, thank you for finding this great single player action RPG, it is exactly my style of game for side-indulgences over the commercial games I play. All I have to do now is find sometime to start it that isn't 10 minutes before class :).

Items will disappear(permanently) if you move before you click on the item in the treasure viewer.

When you open a treasure chest and click on it, any item that is inside (including gold) will appear in the right-most icon of the inventory: the "treasure viewer".

If you do not click on the item to add it to your inventory, the item remains in the opened treasure chest and does not disappear, though it will be removed from the treasure viewer when you move away from the treasure chest.

This is handy in the event your inventory is full and you want to go sell some items to a vendor before returning to pick up the extra item left behind. That being said, it doesn't make any sense to go back to a previous floor for loot left behind since the floors respawn each time you visit them, chests and all.

Gold does not require a free inventory space: left-click to add to your coffers.

Ok, I have five comments on this very nice game.

1. Prrrreeettty...

2. ...but the lack of sound and music make me sad. Yes, even though it is very, very pretty, I still feel the lack of both painfully. It just doesn't feel like a complete experience without either. At least give it some sound! It begs for some sound... and music fills the time while you walk around defeated dungeon floors.

3. I wish I could move my inventory around so that I could put my equipment on one side and collectables on the other. Minor annoyance.

4. I feel it was a very poor decision to permanently kill off career characters that die without a puppet. It may be consistent, but puts me off quite a bit since I'll now have to make another account, and I've never had this problem with other Internet games.

5. On the upside, I've found that if you start attacking an enemy, you can hold down the left mouse button to keep hitting them, and you can even follow them. If they die, though, you will have to click on your next target to attack it.

For 17: A Kind of Blue, all you have to do is

make all of the pillars blue (have all the bridges down) and end up in the center, where the chest will be freed. As an extra hint:

I stepped onto 13 platforms to solve it

and hit 9 switches

I got to level 26, then made some bad decisions and had bad enough luck to die without a puppet...

Wiser: Yeah, I've had this issue too, fortunately only once, though. And Tiralmo, as mentioned above I feel your pain. I think the best way to put it is that if you're going to encourage people to invest more time than usual into a game like this by giving them individual names and the ability to come back at any time with the work they've done still being in place, you shouldn't make game-sanctioned methods for destroying all that work (unless you want people to question putting more work into that game just to get back to where they were originally). Permanent loss of time investment into larger-than-normally-accomplishable-within-single-sitting games pretty much went out of style with passwords, IMO.

I only lost about maybe 6 hours at most, and it is a very nice game, so I've come back, but I reiterate: very poor decision to permanently destroy characters. Though from looking around I'll probably surpass my original character in no time (even though he got a piece of armor whose defense was based on Exp. [grah!!] on like the first/second floor).

Bananas are for monkeys. Monkeys are cool, cool animals. You'll see what I mean when you give them some bananas; at least, some of them will show you.

Okay, just passing this on so that other people won't get wiped out like I did.

Once you get up to the 10th floor, you'll notice a machine with a signboard nearby that says it needs some three-colored flask.

This is Mixed Scarab Oil, which you can obtain by taking a Red, Blue, and Yellow Scarab (found on floors

13, 14, and 9

)to the picture of the scarab on floor 16.

Once it's on, walk onto the nearby platform to be transported to the underworld. I don't believe the machine will ever run out of oil, but I could only use it twice.
Anyway, in the underworld there's an empty blue switch platform

which you can fill with a 'switch plate' that you buy from the grifter on level 22. You need to go down an alternate route from floor 24 through floor 23 to get there. And, uh, bring some cash to get one immediately (think it's 1800) since you might be getting acid-clouded by orc mages through the bars.

Once you've activated it and tripped the switch there'll be a swirling yellow portal nearby.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T GO THROUGH THERE UNLESS YOU'RE PREPARED. By which I mean "been up to level 30" at _least_. You can't get out until you

find and defeat three dopplegangers of the adventuring classes and use the orbs that drop on the statues in the upper part of the room.

Every portal will lead you to a room with multiple very hard enemies, including some that have been floor bosses elsewhere.

Restarting yet again,

You can get more puppets either by finding them as treasure or by buying them (earliest shop for such is on level 10, and they are pretty costly at 1000+ Gold), just like equipment.

Oh my... I have no idea how it happened but somehow I got knocked back to level 1 and I'm dual-wielding as a sword user. All the levels I unlocked on my previous play (on this account, of course) were opened, and I had all my equipment, but the starting sword was permanently equipped, and I had another, better sword equipped as well, which basically means I'm dual-wielding and unable to stop. In theory, I could stop by selling the sword, but I'm not really sure I want to do that, since it adds 2-6 damage and 2 to my range, on top of the sword I'm "really" using. Of course, if it works that I always have to have one sword permanently equipped now, this could turn out to be extremely advantageous, but I highly doubt it. I'm also a little worried that this may be a hack rather than a simple bug (my password isn't very secure..)

About that lightning trap on 32: (Use as many hints as you need.)

There's a switch on the other side that'll turn off the electricity, if you can survive the walk through it...

Maybe if your vitality and walk speed were higher, you could survive?

A sign nearby shows "person + puppet", although you'll likely need two or more...

Shotaar the Roughneck could help you here. To get what he wants, kill some goblins. Looking around near the end of floor 4 might also prove worthwhile...

And for further clarification, what you're trying to do on floor 17 is

get to the central platform when all four of its bridges are raised, then hit the switch. The task will take some thinking.

Also, floor 29, as I'm guessing that'll come up eventually:

Fifteen is your friend.

As for fighting the Will'O the Wisp? It is never required. The Key is in one of the boxes on the level, and you won't be able to defeat the Wisp without a high enough attack, which you won't have before you first get to that level unless you're extremely lucky. I think I went back after I beat level 25 and still had to hit and run with my special.

Whenever you quit the game you show up on the last 'safe floor' you visited.

These floors are generally multiples of 5, but if you haven't gotten up to 5 yet you'll show up on 1.

Regarding Floor 9s Will o The Wisp.

He and I had a bit of a disagreement regarding whether he was going to keep his phat loot or not. I wanted it, he wanted to kill me dead. I won.

Tips :

Hit and run is a definite requirement, the key is to get your run speed high enough that you can beat on him and then get away from him quickly enough that he can't get any parting shots in.

I sacked him the very first time I came to the level, granted, I was -really- lucky early on in finding some spectacular armor (+6 def + 8 vitality, found it on the 2nd level)

Try going directly to the left as you enter the level, if you go straight left and down you'll arrive at a circular platform, wait there, recharge your health, if you're not at -full- when he gets there, duck down, when he comes after you, circle him using the width of the platform, then run -up- to the platform above, circle him using the bridges to the right of that platform, make him chase you, make him choose the wrong bridge, then come right back down to the south platform. It will be tedious, it will take 10-15 runs or more (It took me about a half hour to beat him down). But it's -worth- it, the ring he's carrying is bar none, the best thing you'll pick up for quite some time.

Spend some time in this level, loot -all- the chests. I also found a dirk of the vampire in the bottom half of the level.

Damage 1-10
Range + 1
Defense -2

1-10 damage is GODLY for this level (For a Dirk)
To give you an idea, the main-gauche they sell in level 10 is 1500gold and 1-6 damage.

ARGH!!!
With about 4500 xp, some SWEET gear, and ambitious goals, I died on level 30 (yeah, the elven encampment)...

I was standing too close to the campfire while trying to buy a puppet (ironically enought to save me if I died).

Well, lots of knowledge now... gonna take another run (maybe as Axemaster this time).

Oh, and for the record, damage reflection ROCKS! that is the only way I can kill the will'o'wisps...
Speaking of which:

if you go back to level 19 later, there are three will o wisps (Yellow, Red, and Blue)...
Beware - they are really tough and fast!

And the item you get from killing the Blue one is called "The Soul Flame" it is an immediate effect item, and is nothing but a bunch of negatives to almost all of your stats... And it lasts for about 8 minutes (500 seconds)

I needed 3 potions to survive the yellow and red, and then used a Run/Heal/Special Attack/repeat approach to the blue one.

Man, I wish you could get more inventory slots.

Walking around with a helm, two rings, boots, gloves, daggers/weapon and shield/axe and mantle, armor, and a puppet gives you just enough room to hold a floor key.

Anyway, regarding the lanterns: get through the lightning trap on floor 32, take enough keys, and the use of the lanterns will become clear.

this game is unbelievably addicting. i've been playing it for 2 weeks now, and can't stop, and i totally see me playing it for at least another month, if not more. the complexity, nested endless pathways means the game is much more intriguing, and lasts quite longer than more linear games. you could play it all the way thru many times, and it wouldn't be the same game.

the "forum" at the smokeymonkeys site, while not the most user-friendly, and kinda frustrating to wade thru acres of useless verbage, can be mostly helpful if you search specifically for whatever you're looking for. i.e., floor 10, floor 7, thieves tool, lightning field, etc. lots of tips and knowledge can be found in that forum, if you're patient.

my 3rd character in 2 weeks died this afternoon at level 14, after achieving some wicked eternal dexterity gloves, and amazing armor that knocked my defense up to 19. stupid me, daring the boulder to get the blue beetle, without a puppet. i almost cried.

the game is beautiful and very well-made; i feel like i'm taking advantage of somebody by getting something so gorgeous for free. thank you, game designers, and jay for recommending. but my addiction is way frustrated, given it's PC only. my only PC access is at work, while at home i have a mac. way to make me want it more. =)

by the way, regarding the will-o-wisp on the 9th floor, here's a easy trick: enter the thru the door from the 8th floor, there's a a cube right there in front of you. hack at it, open the chest if there's one inside (sometimes there isn't), get whatever's in there, then go immediately back out the door. keep doing this, and eventually the key will be inside that chest, as the contents of the treasure chests thruout that floor play musical chairs each time you open. once you get the key, run like hell for the other door.

you can also get the yellow scarab this way.

Oh and as for the portal in B1 underworld, those guys were tough at first but I found a better sword and owned them, when you use the orbs a path opens and you get to chose one of the four potion thingies thar upgrade your stats.

Wayne,for your problem regarding passing trough floor 26 is actually very simple. When you enter floor 26,you just keep on walking straight trough until the door on the very end of the long road (don't forget to take the key in the case when you enter)(AND VERY IMPORTANT DON'T KILL ANY OF THE CREATURES THAT ARE THERE)
When you come back later (again on floor 26, then you can kill the beasts and take whatever is in any of the cases.

cheers everyone ,jaak

For anyone having TOO much trouble, there is a walkthrough for triglav the "monkeys' madness fourum,
http://mmadness.9.forumer.com/index.php?showtopic=248

I would suggest that you don't use this too often, as it really takes a lot out of the game to be looking up answers to every quest.

and... regarding the soul flames...

They are for perhaps the largest quest in the game.

man! I just lost at level 41! Jaak: You just have to sell it to any vendor.
To sell equipment talk to a vendor and right-click on the thing you want to sell twice. On level 17 you need to get all the bridges DOWN, and be at the middle.

Maverik, unfortunately not. When you get a fantastic item (I've picked up two sharktooths as a swordmaster) you have to just remember where they fell, so you can come back with an appropriate character.

Also, as to the question about additional inventory slots; you can get them! simple donate 1$. This could get very expensive if you die often, but the option is there.

On the Wisp level, after running out then coming back in, a critter dropped a chest with an item that made me able to kill the Wisp in a few seconds. Glee!

I've managed to kill Wisp the first time I've met him - with Doubledagger class it's doable, only really time consuming. You just have to run in circles, attack him when full on health and run when low to heal (there are a few places, where you can run in circles all the time, which is very usefull). The problem with wisp is that he has very high defence rate, but since Doubledagger deals low damage quick anyway that's not such a grate drawback as it is in the case of the other two classes. I suppose, that with his defence each character hits him for something arroung 1 damage each time - only Doubledagger does it quick. Still, it took me about 15 minutes before I managed him.

I found out a quickish way for axemasters to kill the Will o'the Wisp. As long as your axe is of a decent quality by that lvl. your special should take it down half health or more (first time i found this out i had a nice axe by the lvl and almost killed it with 1 special). Just run away and when special is up do it again and hello purty ring

Defeat the Will'o the Wisp

1º First, there is no need : just avoid it and brake the chest where the key is (randomly) hidden.
2º If you want to kill it, the best item for it is any "damage reflection" one, due to the massive damage the wow deals. I've actually beaten it up with a 30% dmg reflection ring.
3º Once you did, you'll be granted a very nice ring.
4º Exit and re-enter the level : good luck, enjoy...

will of the wisp can be more readily killed if you have reflect damage. it drops wisp ring-very usefull!

It's been a long time since I played this game, but I was able to kill the Will O' Wisp very easily the first time I went to that level.

I was playing a DaggerMaster and just kept running around and using her special ability when it was available. Since it has quite a bit of range, I didn't have to be in the path of danger.

This might also work with the Swordmaster, but could be a bit difficult with the Axemaster, since he practically needs to be toe-to-toe with the target.

Grrr. This is the third game on JIG today that I have tried to play only to find it does not load at all, ever. Way to frustrate me. Congrats.

[Edit: I just tried this game and it loads and runs fine in IE (note that IE is required as the review mentions). Sorry you're having a frustrating day, but you might want to check your computer for an extension or something that may be gumming up the works. -Jay]

Of course I checked everything, Jay, but of the three games, one doesn't work in IE (unadvertized until I pointed it out), one is ONLY supposed to work in IE but does not for me, even with all appropriate settings changes, and then there's Triglav, which lets you create a character only to dump you back at the main page when you try to actually, you know, PLAY THE FRICKIN' GAME FOR EVEN A SECOND, then tells you to "Try again Later" when you try to get back in.

Obviously, I can't hold you responsible for this failing, but I can't help but be annoyed that you seem to go to so much trouble to review these games for reliability among other things, but yet leave out all this... you know, NOT-WORKINGNESS that I'm finding today, all over the place.

More to the point, every game I've tried to play from JIG today that looks any good doesn't work in some fashion. That may not be your fault, but it SHOULD be your concern.

[Edit: Of course I'm concerned, but the fact of the matter remains that Triglav works just fine for me. Beyond the character selection, I am able to actually play the game. So, again, sorry if you're having trouble playing the game. Most people with IE can. And as for games we've reviewed since day 1 over 5 years ago, what would you have me do, check all 4000 games daily to make sure they continue to work? I depend on people like you to bring my attention to it. I am always more than happy to look into the situation and correct it if it is within my power to do so. Thanks for your feedback, I hear your frustration and I'm sorry you are disappointed today. -Jay]

The game doesn't work for me either, IE on a PC running XP. There's obviously some code issue somewhere on the game's end. A shame, as I really wanted to try it. However it looks like Smokymonkey is working on a new project, so hopefully that will be widely playable and as good as Triglav sounds!
