Amorphous+


PsychotronicAmorphous+Your adversaries are cunning and relentless. They surround you, acting with the coordination of a directive hive-mind. They will shred you with teeth, dissolve you with acid, impale you with spikes, freeze you, burn you, crush you, devour you. They evolve and grow, mutating into terrible aberrations with overwhelming powers. They are filled with goo. They enjoy jazz. If you fail to annihilate them, surely they will multiply and smother the Earth. They are... AMORPHOUS.

Best of Casual Gameplay 2008Amorphous+, by first-time Flash developer Caleb Rhodes, is an overhead arena combat game that casts you in the role of a little bald human character with a ridiculously over-sized sword: the Splat-Master 9000. This weapon is tailor-made for fighting Glooples, which are basically man-sized soft-skinned green blobs of goop. Control your character with the mouse, and swing your sword by clicking. You can defeat most Glooples by cleaving them in twain with a single swipe, but things get much more difficult later on.

There are two main play modes. In "Single Nest", you must destroy a certain quota of Glooples. The smallest nest is composed of 200 enemies, which is already a pretty significant challenge, while the huge 500-Gloople nest will surely make even the hardest blade-master weep. Although the smallish green blobs at the start of a game are harmless by themselves, you will attract nastier, deadlier enemies the longer you stay alive. The second mode is "Bounty Run", where you simply try to rack up as high a score as possible with no ending in sight. You can adjust the difficulty ramp in Bounty Run, which is a nice feature if you want to skip quickly past the harmless greenies to the rare and scary monsters.

AmorphousYour incentive plan covers more than the mere promise of mass blob murder. You can also earn a boat-load of achievement medals, which are awarded for performing almost every possible action in the game. You get one for making your first kill, for making your 1000th kill, for whacking three Glooples with a single strike, for staying alive for one minute, for staying alive for five minutes, it goes on and on. Nearly every time you play, you'll earn at least one medal, and they all come with a snarky and apt description that usually belittles your accomplishment.

Amassing 10 medals rewards you with a golden key that can unlock a bonus on the Rewards page. These are a collection of weapons, armor, and gadgets that you can take into battle with you. Most of them have a short but powerful effect that takes a long time to recharge but can really save your bacon when you get surrounded.

Analysis: Amorphous+ doesn't look like much at first gander, but there is an impressive amount of thought and detail driving this little action excursion. It begins, as it always does, with interactivity. The Glooples do not merely move through each other like the classic Asteroids, but rather bounce, burst, ricochet, or meld together with each collision. Tough-skinned giant Glooples will squash smaller ones in their path. The orange Melties are filled with acid, which of course has the potential to kill you; but if you splatter them across the play field, you can use their acid blood as a protective moat against other enemies. When some Glooples start showing up filled with oil and others come enveloped in flames, things can get extraordinarily hectic.

This means that the gameplay is nowhere near as simple as it first appears. Although you can easily dispatch the early waves of Glooples with single slashes of the Splatmaster 9000, the be-toothed, be-spined masses will eventually force you to start using your enemies against each other and executing complicated, split-second maneuvers. There is a delay built into the swing of your sword (the Splatmaster series is notoriously heavy), so you can't just mindlessly hack your way through the mob. It's really a game of positioning and crowd control, which makes it much more compelling than similar arena combat games. Unfortunately, the collision detection between sword and Gloople can be unreliable, especially when there are many enemies within reach. It's a very rare problem, but it can be enough to kill you unfairly.

Amorphous+ is an update to Caleb Rhodes' first Flash game, Amorphous (no plus sign), which was already a good little action game, but lacked a compelling hook to make it addictive. Rhodes has now remedied that in the extensive Award/Reward system. Truly, 110 medals can keep you blob hunting for hours. And the reward gadgets are totally worth the effort, animated with so much care and detail they might very well distract you long enough for a Biter to sneak up and gnaw your chest off. Witness how the Saw Drone unfolds its blades and takes to the air, how the Box Gun unfolds its legs and drives plumes of dust from the ground with a heavy thud.

But what really hooked me in the beginning was the Bestiary: a compendium of over-the-top verbose scientific descriptions of each species of Gloople. These vignettes are so intelligent and thorough, it becomes easy to imagine that these homicidal little blobs really exist somewhere, threatening a large-scale oozy apocalypse if their numbers aren't kept in check by the occasional brave swordsperson.

Amorphous+ still has some room to grow in some areas. The background artwork looks cheap, and in general the presentation is fairly basic. The enemies don't look like much (they are mostly just blobs, after all), but like the Rewards, they are animated lovingly, and they convey a surprising amount of individual personality. I enjoy how a Biter's rotating batch of random spikes coalesce into a shrieking mouth as it lunges at you, for instance. The graphics aren't so much impressive as they are entertaining. And the music doesn't have much to do with the action, either in pacing or style. The tunes are a sort of ambient jazz/hip-hop fusion by a band called Void Revolution, and they serve as the game's soundtrack simply because Rhodes likes Void Revolution. One of the Glooples is even named after them.

So let's do a summary: Amorphous+ is an unassuming but solid maiden effort from a talented game designer. It's not for everyone, but action game aficionados will appreciate the depth of the combat, completionists will respond to the ample reward system, and casual gamers will like the simplicity of the controls. If you are all three, then this game will own your soul. I think there's even an achievement medal that says that.

Guide on how to find and kill gooples

Green Goople

Appears on every nest. Can merge with another Green Goople to form an Oozle. Does not aim for you or attack you, and is killed in one hit.

Stickie

Appears on every nest. Cannot merge. Does not aim for you, and is killed in one hit. When killed, sprays yellow ooze that sticks to you for aproximatly 10 seconds and makes you slower.

Biter

Appears on every nest. Can merge with another biter to form a Horror. Aims for you and jumps at you, and is killed in one hit. Cannot attack covered in Stickie goo.

Meltie

Appears on every nest. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit. When killed, sprays orange acid that kills most creatures, including you.

Sharp

Appears on Big Nest onwards. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit. Is covered in retractable spikes which make it immune to any hazards including Grinders, but it does not use them when it feels safe.

Clutter

Appears on every nest. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and shoots baby clutters, but does not get near you and cannot kill you, and is killed in one hit. When killed, its babies are set free, and they quickly turn into adults if not taken care of.

Inkie

Appears on Big Nest onwards. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit. Highly flammable. If touched by the player, explodes and turns him or her blind for aproximatly 5 seconds. If their goo is touched, the creature will walk in a straight line for a short period of time.

Grinder

Appears on Big Nest onwards. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in five hits when vurnerable. Can only be damaged if it crashes with another Grinder, if it rolls over acid or if it crashes against a hardened Grey, though there may be other methods. Cannot be killed by acid, and is immune to Stickie goo and Inkie goo.

Fuzzle

Appears on Big Nest onwards. Cannot merge. Aims for you and jumps, and is killed in one hit after shaving of hair in two hits. Acid shaves it completely, and Stickie goo does not impede it from attacking.

Oozle

Is formed by two Green Gooples. Can merge with a Green Goople to form a Grey. Aims for you, and is killed in three hits.

Torchie

Appears on Huge nest. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit, though it is not recommended to try while on fire since it explodes. Is put out by Stickie goo, acid, being frozen. Will explode if it crashes with an Inkie.

Frostie

Appears on Huge nest. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit, though it is not recommended because it freezes you. If the player manages to get frozen, spinning will free him or her.

Gray

Is formed by an Oozle and a Green Goople. Can merge with a Green Goople to form a Void Eater. Aims for you, and is killed in three hits when vurnerable. Only vurnable during the few seconds when it is in the process of shooting a spike. Can harden to be immune to sword attacks, acid, Grinders, etc..

Amalgram

Appears on every nest, though only when the quantity of gooples is around 100 or less. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and amount of hits to kill depends on size. Can absorb other gooples, making it one sword hit bigger, and can seperate in two ocassions: upon growing too big, or upon being damaged. If it wanders out of bounderies, it still stays in the game and comes back in.

Horror

Is formed by two Biters. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit when vurnerable. Can shoot spikes, which upon touching certain small gooples turns them into Biters, and can send out small razors. When these are used, it becomes vurnerable. Is immune to acid, Stickie goo, etc., but not Grinders, Void Eaters, etc..

Void Eater

Is formed by a Grey and a Green Goople. Cannot merge. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit. Has three attacks: it can shrink and pull all creatures towards itself then kill them with a shockwave, it can simply make a shockwave when the player is near, and it can charge and shoot a beam which atracts all creatures and kills them. Since it is normally innaproachable due to shockwaves, the best time to kill it would be when charging or while shooting the beam. It is unknown if it immune to acid or Stickie goo.

Queen

Appears on any nest. Aims for you, and is killed in one hit. Attacks by swinging one of its blades at you, and is easier to attack when this is dodged. Leaves behind small larva that enter other gooples and turn into Queens when she is killed.

Razor Queen

Appears at the end of any nest. Aims for you, is killed in five hits. Attacks in different ways: swings its blades at you, jams its blades into the ground and shoots spikes and spiked balls, lunges and swipes at you, swings its tail, throws little spiked gooples on the floor who shoot spikes if you get too close, throws larva on the ground that burrow and jump at you. The only moment when she is most open to attack is when she lunges at the player. Also, if she is killed using no rewards, the player is given a key to the lock for a more powerful sword.

Very fun! So simple, yet interesting. I guess the only thing I have to complain about are the graphics.... so far.

And I just got eaten by a giant blob

)=>

Trying again now...

interesting game... quite fun. I've played it for a bit now and I like it. Wish they would describe what 'reward' is what, so you aren't randomly guessing.

Fun game. I guess the gameplay could be improved a bit, maybe if you could hit and move at the same time. And maybe the graphics a little, they stay somewhere between old-school and modern flash. But it's pretty fun to play! Lots of awards to get.

Boo!

I can't play this at work (Kongregate is firewalled).

Oh well, the last thing I needed was a game with a small man and a huge sword to obsess over.

Yay!

My best score yet was 1285 on the Bounty Run mode. I found it easier than playing on the regular Single Nest Mode.

LOL, Grimmrook!

Well, in case you do want to do some obsessing, it is also available over at Newgrounds:

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/450670

Too late, Jay. Newgrounds is firewalled here too, but I found yet another place carrying the game and...

sigh...

so much for my productivity the rest of the evening.

Great game! It's fun and addictive. The awards were a great touch. Could someone perhaps post all the awards and rewards? That would be useful. I mean, when someone finishes the game.

Sorry, but it gets annoying after you have 40 to go in the small nest, and you're half covered in Cluster spawn and 2 Biters come up, you kill one, your mouse goes off the screen, and you die.
:/
Could someone add a life system? -_-

It's funny how the awards comments are always right...

Please don't copy/paste walkthroughs from other sites here. It was removed.

If you wish to write one yourself and post it here, we would be very happy to publish it. It may even earn a permanent spot in our special Walkthrough Guide section above the comments.

Thanks!

Oooooooh, so...many...awards...*drools*

And completist, such a nice description of my personality. Thank you for coining that word, Psychotronic. ^_^

Dang it! I hate those stupid

grays

! I can't figure out how to kill them. Suggestions?

So, what rewards do you recommend?

I found the

armor very useful... and the grenade a bit useful, though it's hard to aim

Well, thank you for bringing the word to my attention then. I can at least give you that much credit. :)

As for the game, I'm surprised how they managed to come up with 150 awards for a simple game like this. o_O I think they could teach me a lesson or two. ^_^

warning this comment may have spoilers:

thank you so much for taking my suggestion jayisgames team. Although i'm though if you really read it but who cares. I love this game. From common gloople to the final boss the razor queen each of them is awesome. Anyways thank you for reviewing it.

Sheer Cold,

The last normal reward on the bottom row acts as an extra life for pretty much everything. One notable exception would be that dratted acid.

Also i forgot to mention that I love the addition of a save system that was not in the first game. I recommend trying the game on newgrounds. Mainly because there a lot more reviews and it has links to a guide which can help you. No disrespect to psychotronic I just like getting other peoples opinions. The link is displayed up there. Anyways I cannot begin to describe I love this game. Good night.

The reason I changed the links to Kongregate is because of the 'modal' overlay Newgrounds uses for its games. Not only does it require an additional click to play the game, but it also causes display issues on some computers (mine included).

Kongregate does have badges for this game, and currently a card challenge for Kongai as well!

I hate that there is no way to stop them purple ones once they get started on you.

In regards to the purple ones, it took me a while but I found out that if you run your mouse in a circle really fast, you'll spin off the little ones that hang onto you. It doesn't work that fast, though, so don't think that just because you can get them off means you can not worry about getting hit by them... :P

I think I like this award the best:

purple heart: clear a nest with a clutter still attached. Look! You have a new friend! I think it likes you.

How to use awards during game???

Hardcore mode's way more fun than normal! I, for some reason, got farther in hardcore than normal.

Anyone got tips on how to kill the greys or voids?

There are some 'accidental' badges, as you may have suspected. Some of them are:

Absentee: Pausing for two minutes
Jackpot: getting a score of 777 at any point during a game, not necessarily ending with it.
Unfortunate: being killed by a biter that lunges from off-screen
Pacifist: Not swinging for 30 seconds
Bully: chasing a clutter off screen without swinging
Guerilla Tactics: knocking a sharp into another blob
Accident Prone: getting bumped 30 times
Friendly: getting covered in the little clutters
and Dirty Job: spending a total of one minute all gooed up by the wretched yellow Stickies.

Also, a couple of tips:

You can use Melties to your advantage. Even if you don't get points, it'll still clear the screen. Also, if a stickie is killed by acid, there is no annoying yellow goo to get you mucked up.
A good way to get some of those combo badges is to cover yourself in tiny clutters, and twirl them all off, then kill them all in one smooth swing.

Grays are vulnerable when they're shooting their lance out but before it's fully formed. Three hits will kill them. They'll only shoot if you're in front of them.

Stay away from void eaters. The shockwave will kill you. When they charge their laser, you can either try to kill them before they fire, or set it up so that the laser will pull you into slashing range.

Also I hate amalgams.

I am so addicted to this game now.

Actually, if you're lucky, you can use the Saw Drone reward to hopefully spin around and get the wretched void eater In practice mode, I can frequently narrowly avoid being dematerialized by my trusty drone killing it at the last moment. It's kinda funny how it splats like a regular gloople, but is infinitely more lethal. Whenever I find myself running from a Horror, I like to scream "OH GOD THE HORROR!". Also, all the awards, rewards, and species can be found here: http://kongccg.blogspot.com/2008/08/amorphous-award-and-reward-guide.html

Would someone please create a walkthrough for us (in their own words) and post it here?

We would much rather have the entire listing here at JIG for our visitors than link to some other site where we have no control over what is there.

Thanks!

Here's a good way to kill the different foes.
Glooples: Sword. Swing. Splat. simple enough...

(Can't remember the name, it's a combo of two glooples. Ooples?): Get round behind them. three swings.

Greys: They're invunerable while they're not attacking. Wait until they try to spear you, then rush in and strike. If they start reeling it in, you've missed the chance. Three hits.

Void Eaters: Avoid their gravity beam, otherwise you get vaporised. If they use their black hole attack, run or get exploded. (they suck you in then make a shockwave. Get too close and KABOOM! you're chunky salad.) And if you ever get a chance, run parrelel to the gravity beam and slice them. One hit and they die.

I just got

the perfectionist badge for

ninety minutes clocked up, I may be an addict... but yeah, wonderful game with a surprisingly sharp sense of humour too.

38 awards, only 72 to go.

Man, this is going to take up the rest of this week.

I found that you get another extras slot after a while. I don't know how though...

more than three hours of play time, but I only have 21 awards left to go....
some of which are enemies I don't know how to get. how do you get a

queen

I just can't figure it out

grr... I'm getting addicted... I'm gonna make a guide once I get all the awards :P

Gryphon, someone said that the queen is random and that s/he got her on the small nest, other people say you get her if you play bounty run enough, and others say you get her at the end of the huge nest... I've never gotten her before on the small nest or got far on the other two, so I don't know... Somebody said that s/he had ten glooples left when a queen killed him/her, but I didn't ask where

This game is just great. Normally I'd try to quantify what makes it great, but that's a verbosity habit that I'd better break.

I swear there's a little gremlin inside the flash applet writing up the Award descriptions. They're just too true... Three Licks excessively so. I think that I got killed by Oozles two or three times before I managed to actually kill one in nest mode.

Does anyone know how to get this award?

The one for surviving an explosion... I already killed around 7 torchies with a reactive suit, and nothing :(

I haven't even finished a small nest yet... do I suck at this game?

ah-ha-ha-ha! I finally beat a small nest. I love how hairy the game can get at times, too. Nothing like a couple of Clutters taking up all your attention, while an Oozle rolls in from behind and a Biter flanks you, plus the ever-present Stickie and Meltie puddles about to make it all the more complex.
But surviving it all is good fun.

2 things:

1. can the armor protect you from certain attacks as well as give you an extra hit point?I fought grays in practice and their lance did't hurt me.

2. how do you lit ink on fire ?

Clearly a good deal of time has gone into writing for this game. There are detailed descriptions of glooples, awards and even tips. So then it maddens me when I read "it's" where "its" should be. I know it's nitpicking, but it's clear the maker of this game is intelligent, so that one glaring error is all the more glaring. Plus, with all those little genderless critters about, "it's" [sic] appears a lot.

I found some kind of glitch with the game to get a queen.

put the hypermode thing on which sends all gloople types & die, when u retry there is no spawns of any gloople but after a few minutes a queen will apear.

I have not been able to defeat 1 yet so I cannot tell if this will work for the special key & award.
I hope it works for anybody who tries it & its not just my game thats messed up lol.

I think I got really lucky... Ran into a queen the first time I finished a small nest (one of the tips says it's just a random chance, and more likely for bigger nests) and somehow managed to kill it in one swing before I knew what was going on. I tried fighting some more in practice mode, and they seem to block me no matter what I do...

There are still a bunch I haven't met, though, even after (finally) finishing a big nest.

urmurim: I'm pretty sure you get the extra reward slot after 55 awards (since that's half).

Yep, you get the extra reward slot after 55 rewards.

Man, I feel like I'm destroying big water balloons filled with paint and the occasional acid. :D

What is your favorite gloople? Mine is the sharp. I love splatting their pentagonal unprotected membrane. It's so satisfying to finally get the splatted after so many pings of metal-on-stiffened-gloople-membrane.

Lol I just got an award for

shaving a fuzzle's fur 3 times!! You do this by

slashing it twice and letting it grow back, slashing it twice again, letting it grow back again and then slicing it twice AGAIN!!!

There's so much depth in this game, and I really want to like it but please, PLEASE fix the hit detection. It feels like the sword is made of paper, the way it handles right now. And swings take sooo long to recover from! I'm wielding this giant sword and a feel like a weakling. It's so wrong.

The trophy names are pretty awesome. I can't believe how many there are.

Queen can be encountered on small nests, and they're not as hard as they seem. A good grenade and they're gone.

beeblebrox, the swing recovery time is the only way that most enemies can possibly attack you. Any reduction in that would make the game much too easy.

So far I've gotten:
All the Glopples, including Queen except one which I think is the Superbiter. I'm pretty sure its when 2 Biters fuse but I've never seen it happen yet.


Void Eaters

Grays turn into Void Eaters. They're easy to defeat. One hit will kill them. Just swing at them as soon as you spot one.

Grinders

You must weaken them first. Possible ways are lure them into Meltie's acid, have too bump into each other, grenade or make them hit something hard like SCAER (It will destroye it). Then hit it 5 times.

Queen

Dangerous. She has 2 blades equivalent to your Splatmaster. When killed she will leave parasites. When they find a host Gloople and she is killed it will grow into another Queen.

Others

Stickie's goo protects you from fire and from freezing

Rewards

Top: Sprint, Grenade, Bio-Chem Grenade, Inhibitor, Hazard suit, Sawdrone.
Bottom: Wall, Repulser, Auto-turret, Teleporter, Armor, ???

Somebody post a a walkthrough on all the awards and/or rewards, all the glooples, how they're made, and how to kill them.

How to get Silver Kay to unlock Sword:

Kill Queen with your sword. No rewards like grenades etc.

That's all fine and dandy Tweed, but HOW do you do that? I have been trying on practice for a while and cannot figure out a way to kill her without rewards

I hope this is completely correct... If there are any errors, I hope someone can point them out.

Be bumped 30 times

Friendly-

Be immobile due to baby clutters

Dirty Job-

Be stuck in Stickie goo for over a minute. You often get this at almost the same time as "friendly"

I hope that helped you get some!

Oh, and a tip for being blinded by Inkies-

Pray that no Melties come, and swing wildly.

So very sorry about triple post, but I have a great discovery for fighting Horrors!!! It will save many people deaths.

You can bat away the spinning disks with your knife, just evade them when there are a lot nearby.

Well, it DOES say in the Tips screen...

that you can deflect a lot of the things that glooples throw at you.

I was playing a Big nest, getting just a little bit bored with the (somewhat) basic enemies that I had encountered so far over the course of the game. Apparently someone was listening in on my thoughts, because I'm pretty sure that a fuzzle, a grinder, and an inkie - which I had previously never seen - all apeared within the space of ten seconds or less.
Incidentally, I did not survive the fuzzle.

Later:
Anyhow, I've just completed a Big nest for the first time. Realising that it was possible to deploy a reward multiple times over the course of the game was pretty important.
I used the

saw drone.

Right near the end, though, I got totally cluster****ed by clutters. Completely bogged down by about five adults, covered in little purple babies. I was so dang lucky that nothing tough showed up at that point - just a biter or two.
On the plus side, I got Purple Heart and Friendly for my pains.

Insertnamehere - you survive an explosion by having an inkie crash into a torchie on the opposite side of the screen then you are on. Since both follow you, it's possible to make happen, but more likely will happen by accident.

The suit's explosion doesn't count, because you always survive that explosion.

Is there any way to make the appearance more of a razor queen more probable? I keep playing the small nest, but it just won't appear.

I'm on 68 awards so far, and with my (meager) skils that makes me feel pretty good. Just now, I kept replaying the Bounty Run on Slow, just to increase the probability that a VoidEater would appear so I could splat it and net another award.
It took me a few tries, needless to say. At one stage I had no less than three oozles on screen at the same time...

Oh man oh man oh man... I only just realised that there's going to be an award for

splatting multiple void eaters.

Needless to say, this thought fills me with dread. It's like getting a huge plateful of food that you do not enjoy, and knowing that you have to eat it all.

How do you find the razorqueen? Does she even exist? There is no slot for her in the bestiary.

This game is fantastic, I'm not saying it isn't,
but I'd like to make a suggestion.

Why not have a canvas background option? The goo would stay as color on the canvas so you'd have
a more colorful background as you progress through the nest or bounty run.

But even without that, this game is great.

On the five combo award description, it
said exactly what I had killed to get the award:
Three baby clutters and two glooples. Freaky!

Agh.I do NOT want to imagine what it's going to be like to face down a Horror in a real game... I can't even splat them in practice.

Here's something fun if you want to put yourself through hell: start a practice session with the toughest glooples that you have. For example, I just started one with the Amalgam, Void Eater, Horror, and Gray.
It was all I could do to run about madly, trying to clock another few seconds, while their friendly fire popped each other and my autocannon got an occasional kill.

Oh hey, I just got a BETTER survival practice.
Stickies, Clutters, and Grinders.

This is the best game I've played online for a long time. I've spent so much time playing it. I mean, like, hours. And my award count is currently 90/110!

I still haven't seen a torchie, though.

Can someone tell me the

15 ways to die?

This game is by far best played with the Yakety Sax song from the Benny Hill show, in place of the music provided... I mean, really, it is, just, so much fun. :D

The Razor Queen is a lie! I cannot find her!

I never imagined that a game about a little guy trying to kill killer blobs of goo using a freakishly giant sword would be so fun.

I keep getting killed by Biters as they charge out from the side of the screen, and I don't have time to dodge. Just recently, I was destroyed by a Biter, as I was running for my life from a Gray and avoiding acid. Sigh.

Oh yeah, and Void Eaters ARE immune to Acid and Sticky Goo. I tried. And failed. But in practice mode, so yeah...

Just recently, I was chased and hunted down by a Gray, Void Eater (5 glooples just suddenly decided to come to the exact same spot...), and giant acid pools everywhere. And I survived! BOO-YEAH!

But then I stepped in acid 5 seconds later.

I really like the Awards and gloop combinations. Very cool. And fun. Graphics could use a little work though.

Can someone please tell me the fifteen ways to die? Pretty please?

Start by listing those you've encountered already, we'll work from there ;)

Make sure you deal with Amalgams quickly. Or else: http://i36.tinypic.com/2lk7cz9.jpg

The razor queen DOES exist:

Here is a screenie I took of it in practice mode: http://i34.tinypic.com/op0lfk.jpg
The one I found was at the end of a small nest. After dieing to her, I got the option to retry which put me right back in combat with her. After 2 retries,I could not retry again. I'll post again once I have info on how to beat her

Nice, very nice game. But call me stupid if you want I can't use the specials weapons I was rewarded ? What did I miss ?

I discovered an interesting tidbit:

Oozles are much more likely to stick to the glooples they hit and become Greys if you have already smacked them two times. Same with Greys becoming Void Eaters.

And to Lodz: You have to click on the rewards to equip them, and some require you to press either A or S to activate them. If they are equipped then they should have a green circle letter around them on the rewards page (which should tell you which button to push to use them) and they will be in the top left corner of the screen when you play, surrounded by that same green circle.

Has anyone else had the problem of Kongregate causing Firefox to spontaneously crash?

Has anyone beat the huge nest? I've gotten as low as 86 using the

hazard suit and grenade.

JAY, THE SPOILERS AREN'T WORKING FOR ME!

Can you, the head administrator and founder of this daily updated commercial blog, send a fine and sophisticated solution to this pestering problem?

Also, javascript:void(0); is written on the status bar of my browser when I roll over it.


[Edit: Javascript must be enabled for spoilers to work. They have been tested in every major browser on Mac, Linux and Windows, and they function in all browsers. I really don't know what to suggest besides: 1) make sure Javascript is enabled; 2) try a different browser; 3) try a different computer and, if they work, compare what's different between the two. -Jay]

I was thinking... as I was getting totally massacred in the process...

but what if, for a game designer, you could control the masses of blobs and have to kill the warrior thing with the giant sword...

Just a thought.

This is so frustrating! The '15 Different Deaths Award' is the only one keeping me from 110/110. So far, I've died via:

1. Biter/Fuzzle (chomp)
2. Sharp/Gray (impale)
3. Meltie (acid)
4. Grinder (steamrolled)
5. Oozle/Gray/Amalgam (absorption)
6. Torchie (lit on fire)
7. Torchie (its explosions from a distance)
8. Frostie (frozen then ran over by anything)
9. Horror (spinning blades/flying teeth)
10. Void Eater (beam)
11. Void Eater (pulse)
12. Queen/Razor Queen (claws)
13. Grenade
14. Saw Drone
15. Box Gun

Now, i think i'm being on the safe side calling some of those the same "way of dying"...so, if anything, i'd have more. Anyone know of other ways that i can try adding to my list to get that award?

I don't know if this will help you... but:

If you get covered by a bunch of purple things, you get run over by a boulder...

If the medals were worth anything to the game, i would try to get them...

Eric... The Razor Queen has A LOT of different attacks, each with a different death, so that should boost you to 15 deaths

Thanks ___, but I'm pretty sure i've also died each way from her too (claws, lunge, spikey larva, shooting teeth, the thing that burrows and chases you...)

that, plus i found out biter and fuzzle actually count as two different kinds, as well as sharp and gray impaling you. also confirmed that the 3 absorption-types do count as the same kind.

i still can't conceive how i don't have that award yet

PS - it's frustratingly near impossible to allow an oozle to live in hopes to form a gray, then allow that to live in hopes to form a void eater

the rasor queen is only vulnerable after a certain attack, and i am pretty sure it kills you in one hit.

Does anyone know what all of the different rewards do?

Sprint - hold action key to run faster until it runs out
Grenade - throws grenade at distance and direction of cursor
Lure - tricks honing-glooples into going after it instead of you
Inhibitor - decreases number of glooples spawned on screen
Hazard Suit - protects from defensive hazards (all different goo-types), until worn down
Saw Drone - flies about the screen, aiming for and killing what it encounters
Instant Wall - builds a (as far as i know) permanent blockade, approximately 1/3 the height of the playing area
Repulsor - creates a circle which pushes glooples away from the center
Box Gun - holds 30 (i believe) rounds to shoot and kill all glooples in one shot (except hard surfaced ones like Sharps, Grinders)
Teleport - one-time use to transport to another spot on screen
Reactive Armour - one-time protection from offensive attacks (Biters/Fuzzles, Horrors)
Glaive Sword - bigger, more powerful sword, although does slow your running speed

I found the GREATEST way to get any points-in-a-single-swing award you haven't gotten.

Use a grenade to shatter a Grinder's shell, hit it four times, and catch it in a swing that kills any two other Glooples with it for the fifth swing. It'll get you 300 (and loose change) of bounty.

Found another way to get the Firefighter award.

If you hit the SCAER with a grenade, it explodes into ten little spots of fire. Just run 'em over and you got it. I haven't even seen the torchie yet and I have the award

I found it ironic that I got the "Alertness" award when I was distracted and not actually looking at the screen when the sound popped up.

Ironic indeed.

I just got the Enforced Gravity and Bravery awards. I can't wait to see the description for the awards for...

Multiple kills on Grays, Void Eaters, and Horrors, all of which I'm now working on.

Eric - not sure if you've already done this, but it's possible to die by throwing the Wall reward, and then quickly moving to where it falls so you get insta-crushed when the Wall forms itself.

But it seems so bizarre I have no idea if it'd count as an extra death. And no, I haven't gotten the 15 ways of death award, I've only just gotten the 10 ways one - but I haven't met either of the Queens yet.

Yeah, I finally get 110 awards! :) I think the 15 death way awarded is given by finding the most death animation. Here's what I think is the possible 15 way of death:

1. Bite by Biter
2. Bite by Fuzzle
3. Smashed by Grinder ,Wall or Razor Queen's spine jack
4. Melted by Meltie's acid
5. Stick to death by Sticker
6. Burned to ashes by touching Torchie or walked into a bonfire.
7. Smashed to pieces in frozen state (frozen state can be earned by killing a Frostie)
8. Explosion by grenade, Inkie near Torchie, Void Eater's shock wave and by slashing Torchie while it's in fire
9. Slashed into horizontal half by Horror's disc, Razor Queen's blade (sometimes), Saw Drone.
10. Lost your head by Queen and either one of Razor Queen's single blade. (Note: not its tail: tail gives death #16)
11. Slashed into vertical half by Razor Queen's digging mite
12. Swallowed by Amalgam, Oozle and Gray
13. Pierced, and then swallowed by Gray
14. Being stabbed by Horror's teeth, Razor Queen's long spine and spine ball, Gun Box.
15. Vaporize into nothing by Void Eater's beam.
16. Smashed into pieces by Horror's body and Razor Queen's tail.

OK, OK, there's 16 ways, but I think any 15 is good enough. After all, I don't think I have ever died the #16 way.

ii just got two void eater at the same time! (died in seconds...)

I can't get the queen to appear.

Is the queen more likly to appear if hardcore is on?

lol... an oozle eated me , then a frostie freezed me inside , then go crashed into 1 million pieces by a sharp xD a nice way to die huh?

@ganondorfchampion: No, the chance are equal. The trick here is to reduce a small nest to less than 10 gloopers, and then do the waiting game, and don't kill any gloopers anymore if possible.

You can easily dodge them or force them out of play, except maybe the occasional Amalgam, which you have to kill it as it can't be driven off. Sooner or later, you will meet the queen. :)

I've met the queen but couldn'y kill her.

Now is she more likely to appear in hardcoremode?

sorry about the double posting. My stupid mouse must of double clicked.

I killed the queen now how do I get the razor queen?

The razor Queen is awesome!

I got everything! All the bestiary entries, awards and rewards! To answer the 90 minute playtime award, yes, I was not satisfied until today!

I had been using the reactive armor for a while, then I unlocked the hazard suit, and I decided to see what would happen if I put the Hazard suit in the A slot, and the reactive armor in the S slot. And, it creates a whole set of armor. It has the metal look of the reactive armor and the black/gray color scheme of the hazard suit with the splincer cell lights. It has all the benefits of both suits of armor, and if the hazard suit runs it, it turns into the reactive armor, if the reactive armor blows up, it turns into the hazard suit. Just thought i'd share my discovery, did anyone else know?

You can earn massive scores in single swings using this technique:

Try to end a single nest having only one gloople and make sure it is a clutter.
Without moving wait for it to cover you in babies then turn wildly and most of them are off you kill them in one swing .
If you remain still while the clutter is 'shooting' you you can get most of the babies off at one time.

My personal best using this technique is 47x combo and 6627 points single swing.
This technique earns you most difficult awards like 8x combo, 300 point single swing bounty and 3000 score in any game mode.

Can anyone answer my query?
While fighting a razor queen, do you have to kill it in a single chance or do you have to get in the required five hits in the 3 rematches?
I have found it difficult to land 4 hits in the three chances. I die after 1 hit and rarely manage to get 2 hits in a single chance.
Is there an easier way to kill the razor queen?
It is extremely frustrating to complete a nest with a couple of glooples left and wait for the razor queen to appear before being killed by it.

I want to turn the music off. That's a noob game designer mistake - to not give that option.

In case you were new to game menus, Options > Sound allows All, FX Only, Music Only, or None.

according to Ang's list of 16 different ways to die:

1st) i argue #5 since you can't be killed by Clutters, only immobilized to be killed by something else
(leaving 15 different ways)

2nd) i suppose the only thing keeping me from 15 is the Void Eater's beam, since every time i get one, the only thing he uses is his pulse...everything else, i've died by

I love this game! Practice mode helps me understand killing every single one of them..I know how to kill anyone of them...though i only have a few awards left and i am unable to kill a Razor Queen..even if i know how to kill it. (COWARDLY QUEEN!) I play at newgrounds but anywhere is just as fun. By the way try using 2 Rewards at the same time.

the Reactive Suit and Hazard Suit together..it gives you a very long life.( If you know how to use it well.)

I hope it helps..

In order to get the razor queen, you need a full bestiary, then she appears like a normal queen, except a lot bigger, a lot more painful, a lot more blades, and a lot more painful retries. Note: you can weaken an RQ with a reward, but the finishing blow has to be from your sword if you want the glaive sword.

To InsertNameHere:
Void eaters are unaffected by both meltie acid and sticky goo.

Can someone explain to me the hardcore mode?

P.S. Which do you think are the best rewards?

Is there any way to increase the appearances of grays?
How do I kill frosties without being frozen and queens?
How can I get more reward slots? Is the maximum no. of rewards you can use at the same time 2?

I have found every beast in game, but no razor queen appers at end of nests. I know I have every monster because there's only one slot left in the bestairy, for razor queen... I tried epic and non epic, rewards or no rewards. I'm not getting razor queen!

just to let u all know. in the spoilers at the top of the screen it reads "amalgram" its ment to be amalgam.

just to brag a bit. i have all the awards, rewards, the razor glaive and have beten all nests in hardcore mode. my awesomness is above all yours. haha

Just a note, but void eaters are easy. Wait until they start to charge up their black beam of death and then rush at them and swing at them. Before or after the void eater shoots is irrelevant, as it is comnpletely powerless when it does that.

You kill grays by swatting them when they attack with their lance.

Either you like it or not the best way to kill a queen is by

standing still and waiting for her to lunge at you its not as much fun but if you try you'll get the award

Anyone know which reward behind the locks is the hazard suit?

A good tip for the razor queen and to get the

the razor glaive (ownage sword)

Get grenade and reactive armour. get 51 awards to unlock dual slots. When the razor queen lunges at you, quickly move to her side and hit her now unprotected side. When she digs her spines in the ground, throw your grenade and run as far away as possible. teeth cannot kill you with armour. Spike jacks, dodge, then use as cover from attacks. Tooth disks: let them come near, then move just before they pop out of the ground and try to send them out of the arena. Rinse and repeat with the splatting and the grenade throwing and you will get the special key which unlocks the silver lock in the items menu.

Hey, that's not right! I finished small nest 3 times already and no razor queen or just queen! Do you have to do something to make them come or is it down to luck?If luck, then that part of the walkthrough's wrong?

i have noticed that some people saying they don't know how to kill the hard glooples so I will explain how to kill all the hard glooples. (also included is self deemed useful hints.)

Grays

stay far enough away and in front of it that it will shoot out a tendril lancey thing. dodge tendrance(tendril/lance) and swoop in for a third of the kill. with the razor glaive(a.k.a. glavor) just move up and swing away george(once)

a list of other now one hit deaths(with glavor) oozle, fuzzle, spiked sharp, grinder?

grinder

the real problemo with this one is opening it.
you can: grenade it, meltie acid it(get a meltie grinder crossover), make a clash of the grinders, run a flamie into it, hit it with the wall in a can, or smack it with the glavor.
then all you have to hit it until it dies.

you can save that fifth hit on the grinder for a combo grinder+gloople+gloople=903 points givings you many a medal

void eater

pretty straight forward. stay out of its reach(about a tendrance length) and wait for it to charge its laser beam and swoop in for the kill. glavor does no special help for this

horror

this is a tuffie. the first problem is forming it(some people do not know how to do that). two biters bumping(not lunging) into each other will eventually form it. then proceed to run away and scream like a sissy girl(in the game peoples) until it shoots out its razor blades(you have to be far away for this to happen) and move in for the kill.
glavor does nothing helpful in this.

amalgam

just slash it until it eventually gets too small and kill it.although if you are rare monster hunting and are at low number of enemies this is the only rare enemy you will get

queen

an all out sword fight. wait until she lunges and hit her red body blob thing, but be forewarned she has larvae(a.k.a. pawns) that if ingested by a gloople host will reach the other side, i mean become a queen when the previous queen dies. most effective way to kill pawns is smash em trogdor style which is to say underfoot (no need to call them peasants though). if a gloople already has a pawn inside it; kill that gloople or face the wrath of many queens. also glavor is good for nought against ole queenie

razor queen

THE BIG BAD BOSS. you must run away while screaming like a sissy girl(although both in game and in real life this is acceptable) if you remain and fight (while whimpering in fear) wait until it launches at you then: sidestep, hit right behind mouth blades, rinse, and repeat 5 times with normal sword 2 with glavor. also do not try to get in more than one hit per lunge you will undoubtedly be mulchi-fied. if however sharp and royal decides to dig in its bladependages just dodge like heck.

hints

meltie

there is a suit that is on the first row second to last that protect from all splats including meltie. although you might want to pair it up the red armor because other wise it is very very ugly

flamies

to get the medal demolition have insta transporter in your hold. first you need a corner of the screen to go to when you teleport (away from the flamie) find a flamie, slash at it, and imedeatly teleport away.

medal

in order to get big combo get swarmed by clutters, spin em all off, and lastly slash at the biggest group

Whoops. Forgot to look thoroughly. Now I have a useless post.

Someone should put out a full beastiary picture. And can someone please tell me how to make all the hard enemies appear?

For those of you who have trouble killing

Void Eaters

here's something helpful:

The Hazard Suit (the one that makes you immune to acid, stickie goo, etc. is also immune to the void eater's shockwave. I've killed 2 very easily this way.

This isn't really helpfull, but if you put on both the Hazard Suit and Armor, they sorta combine, and you look like you have to silver armor with lights :P

for some reason the razor queen has the unrisistable urge to destroy the turret gun. i would recomend that award if you want to kill her. I did it in practice mode and was able to kill 4 queens before it was kill by her claws.

I just got attacked by a void eater, a horror, and a Queen all at the same time.

1st the void eater fired a vaporization ray and killed the horror, then the Queen killed the void eater, then I killed the Queen, and the queen was the last gloople in the huge nest.

The two best items to use are the very last normal item on the bottom row and the one diagonal left from it. If you use those two tegether then you are invincible for the whole game until you get hit by something if its deadly then it gets rid of the one instantly but if its like sticky goo or acid then it uses your other suit which lasts a while. You'll see for yourself its awesome.

Okay, this is the absolute, guaranteed, foolproof way to beat the razor queen (and get the razor glaive).

1. Equip box gun under rewards (and reactive armor if you have unlocked double slots)
2. Get the razor queen (click on small nest, wait until there are less than 10 glooples left, wait for her)
3. Once she is there, put the box gun in a corner. Lead the razor queen into the opposite corner while it activates.
4. When it has activated, she will forget about you and plod over to the box gun to destroy it. You can actually slash her while she is doing this. hit her twice (but only twice!)
5. When she slashes the box gun, it will explode, scoring the equivalent of 2 hits on her.
6. Now that she is on the other side of the screen from you, she will lunge at you, at which point you slash her core.
7. She is dead, and you have unlocked the razor glaive.

For the award which says you have to beat a nest with a baby clutter attached, does it have to be attached all the time or just at the moment when you beat the nest?

I found another method for getting big combos (depends mostly on luck and timing, though):

first you must make sure there is a frostie nearby. lead it to a large group of glooples. when you're close enough, ONLY SLASH THE FROSTIE. shake off the ice. wait for the glooples to melt and slash.

Eric, You can die from a frostie if you are frozen and you are hit again. Happened to me in practise mode.

I've just cleared a huge nest with almost 5k in points but still no queen :( I guess she only shows up when conditions of some kind are met.
I have like 78 awards but I'm wondering how to unlock that one reward that you need a "special key" to unlock. This game is a real time consumer. I think I might be addicted, lol, but I guess I'm not the only one. This game is really
complex.

Cloud0807

I think the best way to kill a Queen is basically to have

Reactive Armor or a Grenade

and wait until you get hit or

just throw a Grenade

A question: Will I get the silver key if I use sprint when facing

razor queen?


And dear CJ,

Queen only show up at the near end of EVERY NEST with a small chance. And if you want the silver key, you need to kill a Razor queen. It appears that you have to unlock all enemy, maybe even slay all kind of enemy first! Keep going.

Here's a trick for the razor queen:

Choose the gun as your reward. As soon as the queen comes onto the screen (I'm assuming you're using the cheat method to get another crack at her), throw the gun up into a corner which is far away from her. She'll come at you at first (lead her away from the gun), but then turn away to take out the gun. As she makes a bee-line for the gun, you can walk along her right side and get several good swipes at her grey circle. When the gun explodes, that will do another point of damage to her. If you're lucky, you can kill her with one more swipe, or even get her entirely as she makes her way to the gun.

Sorry about that last post - I see someone else had already suggested it!

Here's a quick walthrough on all enemies:

(an ! means can kill you and an @ means they're not affected by things like Meltie and Stickie splats, additionally a * means flammable)
Gloople(*):

Harmless on their own but sometimes they combine to form more dangerous creatures if they touch an Oozle, a Gray, or a Horror's spike barrage.

Oozle(!):

2 Glooples. These things are slow and take 3-hits to kill from your blade. Sometimes when touching a Clutter or Sticky they turn into an Amalgam but only if there are less than 150 enemies left in Nest mode.

Sticky:

Burst into sticky goo that slows you and most enemies down. Sometimes though it can save you because while covered in goo you can't be frozen or set on fire.

Meltie(!):

Upon splatting they form a highly acidic pool that melts or at least harms most enemies and you.

Inkie(*):

Black and oily they move fast. If they touch you you'll go temporarily blind. Plus their splats are slippery and highly flammable.

Biters(!):

Blue and low-level but they're the most common killer. They jump in straight lines and kill small enemies that are caught in the line. Sometimes if 2 touch they form a Horror. Additionally these are created if a Horror's spike barrage hits a Stickie or a Gloople.

Clutter:

THese spit their own children at you. You can kill ammo babies by dodging or hitting them out of the air. Clutters always run away from you so you can force them out of the arena. Addditionally upon hitting an adult their kids will pop out and grow up themselves if you don't finish them.

Sharp(!@):

Whenever these guys have their spikes out their almost invincible. If you stay behind them long enough they become vulnerable. You canalso swat them into other enemies for an easy kill.

Torchie(!*):

Don't ever hit these guys while their lit up or you'll perish in the explosion. Eventually they'll run out of fuel and have to either touch another Torchie or one of the little flames they spread. You can safely stamp out these flames to prevent them re-igniting.

Frostie(!):

When these guys die they freeze about half the screen. Its impossible to kill one with your sword and not get frozen. Anything frozen shatters and dies even if you just bump into them (or they do the same to you.....) Additionally these ar the fast moving type.

Horror(!!!!@):

These guys are a serious threat. They're invincible to everything except freezing whenever they're moving around. They randomly spit out a circle of tiny teeth that can muate some Glooples into Biters which can for more Horrors. The only time they're vulnerable is when they launch off 4 buzzsaws. You have to quickly manuouver between them and kill the center Gloople. You can however swat the teath and buzzsaws away but this does nothing to weaken the Horror.

Gray(!@):

Like the Horror these things require precise timing to kill. They move around and harden when threatened by anything. They also have a lance that they launch as an attack. While its shooting out is the only time they're vulnerable. They take 3-hits to kill and you can stop the lance killing you by hittin it.

Grinder(!@):

These things roll around and are invincible to all but 2 things. Meltie splats and each other. After hitting the acid or another Grinder their rock-skin cracks open and then you can kill them after 5 hits. 2nd most valuable Gloople at 100 points.

Void Eater(!!!@):

These things form if a Gray mixes with a basic Gloopie. They have 3 attacks and are as much a danger to other Glooples as to you. They will either turn small and condense gravity towards them and finish all within range with a shockwave or start charging up a beam that pulls you towards it then demoleculizes your body. If you approach at any time other than when they're charging or firing their laser they'll kill you with a gravity shockwave. 1-hit kill them while they're firing or charging their gravity laser.

Queen(!!!!@):

Only appear in Nest Mode on any size. Randomly appear whenever there are less than 20 enemies left. Require PERFECT timing to kill without using a reward weapon. They enter the area with a lethal sword-armed lunge and continue from there. They swing as fast as you but can also combo and block almost anything you do. You have to swing right after they begin a left sword-arm attack otherwise you'll either die or have your attack interrupted. Worst of all they leave out little green bugs that if they touch any other Gloople they infect them so that if the current Queen dies a new one is instantly formed.

Razor Queen(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@):

Yes they're as lethal as they sound. Pretty much made of blades and spikes. They spit spikes and small unique Gooples, swing a giant axe-like tail, and lunge faster than you can walk. You have to dodge whenever they do a lunge and walk around and swing at their head. You can also wait until she puts four legs into the ground and starts spitting spikes at you then run up and hit her. She requires 5 hits to kill. Defeating her using only your sword to inflict damage earns you a new sword made from one of her arms. Strangely, sometimes when you get killed by her it gives you the opton of fighting again.

Final notes: I'm not sure if the Gray and Grinder can block the Void Eater's Gravity Laser.

*sigh*
I've found a walkthrough with information on how to get all awards, full bestiary (description, strategy and location), glitches and evaluation of the rewards. Unfortunately, the JiG terms and conditions forbids me to post the link. >.

I have got: 3 queens, 3 voideaters, 5 greys, torchie (lots of them), 4 amalgrams, 4 horrors but I can't find a frostie, and I neen one to find a razor Queen.

this may or may not help but to unlock the entries in the beastary go to practice mode and practice with the gloople you wish to morph run around and then when they morph press "x" and use the morph with (eg.)a gloople and they should show up in the log

I just got killed by two fuzzles at once, from different angles. They both took my body with them so I had two bodies being torn apart at once by evil furry blobs... hmmm.

Even after it's been out for so long, this game still throws surprises at me.

I thought I could anticipate pretty much anything that could happen, but I didn't count on this:

How do you use the rewards when playing?

I can't find torchies anywhere, I've turned on hardcore mode and gone into huge nests and done bounty run w/fast speed ramp yet they still won't appear, they are the last gloople I need to find before I get to fight the razor queen please help

For Getting a Great armor Combo Use...

The second to last two column.
-Hazard Suit
-Reactive Armor

Hope it Helps!
-GamerOf2010

Try practice mode with EVERY gloople, and try to last more than ten seconds. I dare you.

The very hardest thing to do is Hardcore mode, Bounty Run, Difficult ramp High. With NO rewards turned on...

It's funny, the hardest thing to do is often the most lucrative thing to do to...

AKA you can get 215 points within less than HALF A MINUTE!

It's also really fun to dodge all these at the exact same time:

Horror x1
Fuzzy x2
Gloople x??
Biter x?
Melty x3
Sticky x5
Inky x2
Oozle x2
Grinder x1

THIS IS MADNESS!

Madness?

THIS IS AMPHOROUS!

Yes! I killed the Razor queen!
I have some tips for finding and killing queens/RQ's.

Go on a huge nest and kill all glooples exept for 10. then wait until a queen/RQ appears. (if a horror or amalgam appears, you have to kill it).

to kill a queen, wait until it lunges at you, then sidestep and swipe at the side that is not covered by the claws. for the Razor queen, do the same thing, exept you have to swipe at the main body part (the blob right behind the claws) five times (twoif you have razor glaive equipped).

i found a great way to find

queens and razorqueens

you play on small nest and fight til there is only 4 enemys left and then you just keep letting them go of the screen until it apears.
