joyeElephant QuestLook over there! In your browser window! It's an RPG! It's a platformer! It's... an elephant? Yes, it's Elephant Quest, which is both of these genres lovingly baked together into an adorable JIMP-drawn pachyderm shape for you by jmtb02 with a sprinkling of shooter goodness on top. Wooly the Mammoth has stolen your hat, and in order to get it back, you're going to need to get some epic questing going on, exploring a huge, non-linear environment, completing side-quests, collecting keys, and shooting cute but evil monsters in the face with your laser.

Best of Casual Gameplay 2011Either the [WASD] or [arrow] keys will control your elephant's movement, and aim and fire with the mouse. When you first start the game, you'll notice that your character handles like... well, an elephant. An elephant who just ate a huge meal of peanuts. He can hardly jump, he's fairly slow, and his laser is not exactly impressive. As you kill enemies and complete quests, you'll gain experience points and level up. When that happens, click the button in the upper right corner, or hit the [spacebar].

In this menu, you'll first and foremost be able to spend the "credits" you earn from leveling up on a maze-like skill tree. You'll earn skill points in 5, 10, 15 and 50 point increments in four areas: dexterity, agility, charisma, and intelligence. In turn, you can use these points on the skill window (in the same menu) to buy and upgrade important skills like your jumping ability, and your cuteness. Every 25 points increases a skill by one level, so keep that in mind when spending your points. There are two other important menus in this area. The level map shows where you have and haven't been yet, marks NPCs with stars, and shows exits and connections between screens. The quest menu shows which quests you've unlocked, what you have to do next for quests in progress, and which quests you've completed as well. There are 11 regular quests, and if you log in to your free Armor Games account, Sushi Cat, another game featuring JIMP art, makes an appearance in a bonus quest.

At the bottom, you can resume the game, and in the lower right you'll notice controls for quality and sound as well as a pause button. The game also automatically pauses anytime you click outside the game window.

Elephant QuestAnalysis: A lot can be happening on screen at once, and this can be a drag on older computers, especially once you unlock a flock of minions to hover around you. If you notice serious lag issues, definitely try closing other browser tabs and adjusting the quality. Since my usual lean mean game-chewing machine is awaiting a warranty swap, I'm currently stuck on a 2006-era MacBook. Even so, I was able to beat the game and complete all the quests, so don't think you have to pass this one up if your computer's on the old side. I even was able to keep the quality on high much of the time.

The game has a freewheeling spirit of exploration akin in some ways to the classic Fancy Pants series, and JIMP's art perfectly fits the sweet yet witty humor of the plot. There are certain comparisons to be made in girth, greed and attitude between Wooly and the canine villain of the latest Sushi Cat game, so if you liked the style and atmosphere of that game, you're bound to be tickled by Elephant Quest as well.

In Sushi Cat, you defeat the villain in a cutscene, and the villain of Elephant Quest might as well have been a cutscene for all the difficulty I had defeating him in the final boss fight. That part was a little anticlimactic. Even though I hadn't actually leveled up fully, I still beat the boss without my hitpoints ever getting lower than 260/275.

Elephant QuestI had many much more challenging sections in the regular game itself, especially because I ventured into a certain locked area a little earlier than I think the game-maker intended, and then got spooked and ran away from the enemies deeper into the more difficult area (oops). By the time I figured out I was really in trouble, I had gotten myself into an area where I couldn't backtrack because platforming back was more difficult than platforming forward had been. I thus was stuck with my rather pathetic low-level elephant in an area where flying enemies swarmed you almost immediately. It was hectic but fun. I died a lot, but I leveled up fairly quickly too (it helps that dying has no experience penalty), and pretty soon I had beefed up my elephant enough to laser-blast my way out of there, and when I got to that point I felt the satisfaction of accomplishment.

Then again, there is something to be said for the satisfaction when the 97-pound-weakling runs up and kicks sand in the face of the former bully, so maybe this total curb-stomping of a boss battle fits the narrative arc of the game better than a victory you have to struggle to achieve by the skin of your teeth (or tusks). Perhaps the fight would have been more challenging if I hadn't completed all the sidequests first (this is the problem I always run into with Final Fantasy games, too). The game does try to appeal to many different styles of gamer, from fanatical completionists like myself to "what's the most direct way to the boss" speed demons. The game also offers an additional "come get some" to speedrunners in the form of the "new game plus" option, which enables you to start the game over with all your experiences and upgrades already unlocked.

Whimsical and with wide-appeal, this is certain to be another major hit.

Path to the Boss:

The way to the boss is behind a locked door in area 27 (in the caves). Every room from there to the boss has a door with a lock. The rooms are numbered 34, 37, 39, and 40. These rooms are totally empty, except for room 40, which contains James, who warns you if you go through the door, you can't come back out. Going forward from 40 takes you to the boss battle.

Skill Tree and Abilities Guide

  • You can complete the skill tree without having enough points to fully upgrade every skill. The random squares (marked with question marks) give upgrade a random area, so you may end up with 300 points in dexterity but only 250 in agility or vice versa. You need to put 25 points into an ability to move it up one rank, to a max of 4 ranks or 100 points. Points between no ranks don't make any difference, so you might want to only spend points once you've got 25 to spend.

  • Here is an ugly, but functional, full-sized version of the skill tree. You can use this to more easily figure out the best path to take. I suggest first going up from the start and taking the path to the +15 INT square; that will get you enough INT to go up a rank in "Credit Junkie", which will speed up your time on the skill tree.

AGL (agility):
Overview: Every skill in agility is useful, so if you get shortchanged here by the random squares, that's a real bummer. Upgrading Acrobatics fully is a must in order to reach some things.

  • Acrobatics: Each rank increases ability to jump by one square, to a max of four. Extremely useful skill, necessary to reach some areas.

  • Hide Armor: Damage deflection, 25% per rank. Useful.

  • Constitution: Total hit point increase, 25% per rank. Probably the least useful of the three.

INT (intelligence):
Overview: This is the most important trait to develop in the beginning, as the "Credit Junkie" skill enables you to traverse the skill tree much faster.

  • Weapon Targeting: This says it increases the ability to aim your weapon, but I have to say I didn't notice too much improvement. I would consider this one the least useful.

  • Credit Junkie: Credits awarded per levelup. This is the priority skill to unlock if you want to get through the game faster. You get an extra credit per rank, up to a total of six credits per level up (including the base two).

  • Spike-Readiness: Decreases damage taken from spikes, useful, especially if you want to speed run and just get through places quickly without having to use platforming skills to avoid spikes.

DEX (dexterity)
Overview: Only one of the skills here is really worth maxing out, so if you're like me, naturally this will be the area where the random numbers give you lots of points. Sad.

  • Weapons: Damage done by weapons, up to a max of 12 dmg/sec. Very, very useful, of course.

  • Swiftness: How fast your elephant goes. I'll be frank: I upgraded my elephant to only 50 points worth and I found him plenty fast. I think extra speed might make him too hard to handle. It's up to you.

  • Adrenaline: It appears this affects how much you regain from the hearts monsters drop. Since death is so low-penalty, this is not that useful of a skill.

CHA (charisma)
Overview: The best skill here can actually backfire on you if your machine is prone to lag, so those with slow machines can consider charisma to be low priority.

  • Miniphant Swarm: Per rank, you will be accompanied by more little floating elephants that independently attack monsters. They are extremely useful because you get the same experience for their kills as for kills you make yourself. If you have a slow computer, you may find that the miniphants cause too much lag, however.

  • Quest Uptake: Increases XP bonuses per rank, I think by 25% per rank. Mezzo for usefulness.

  • Cantering: Makes your avatar toddle and look "+1 cuter" per rank. Totally useless, of course, but fun!

My goodness what a fine and inspiring games maker is jmtb02.

My heart skipped when I saw he'd made a new game as he'd managed to draw me away from my platforming/RPG fetish to play his crossover 'achievment' games but you can imagine my physical reaction to finding out it was a platforming RPG.

The controls and game dynamics are so lovely and tactile (lazer sound especially).

I'm loving it. Very very much.

Thank you Mr Cooney. Again.

This game was fun and I enjoyed it overall, but a lot of times the screen felt very crowded, especially once you complete a few quests and have some things following you around, and then there are messages popping up on screen constantly and pictures of enemies and things flying around everywhere. It didn't help that I ran into a bug where I got stuck in the ceiling, and when I reloaded the page I had all my quest items back (but the quests were still marked completed so I couldn't get rid of the items again). It just made seeing what I was doing into a huge mess and caused significant slowdown.

The game was charming enough that I finished it despite this. I can't get enough of that elephant.

Am I the only one having problems with the controls? I tap the arrow button once and half the time the elephant (adorable as he is) inexplicably runs 5 or 10 steps instead of 1. Makes landing on platforms practically impossible, as he keeps running off the other side. :(

Lots of fun, although it has its share of problems. For me, the biggest problem was that it slowed down a lot, even on low quality. I don't exactly have a slow machine, but maybe that's my own problem. I ended up avoiding the "extra minions" upgrade just for the fact that I already had enough stuff cluttering up the screen. I also found it somewhat difficult to control the elephant at times, particularly when jumping and standing near edges, and found that upgrading the elephant's jumping capabilities served primarily to slow down my travel time. And you can count me among the many who were apparently confused by the quest involving Nancy's trophy--I backtracked through the entire cloud level looking for that trophy, since by the look of it on my quests page, I hadn't even completed the first step of "find trophy and bring to Nancy."

Nevertheless, I did enjoy playing, and was very pleased by the ending.

Great game! I did have some lag on a couple of areas, to the point my elephant wouldn't respond to my telling it to move until ten seconds later, after the birds completely kill me. -_-

I'm really stuck. I'm in area 31, the one right outside of the southwest key room in the Clouds, at the lower door. You have to ascend a series of narrow steps, with gaps in between them and low ceilings so that you have to jump and move right at exactly the right place. I died maybe 3 or 4 times in the entire rest of the game, and I've died at least 50 times here. When I tap the right arrow key, the game ignores it, and when I hold the key down for literally the shortest time of which I'm physically capable, it overshoots and sends the elephant off the other side of the platform. Did anyone else have problems like this? Does it have to do with the fact that I maxed out my speed and jump skills?

(PS - I did find a way out...

The old "game doesn't save your exact location and when you reload it puts you in a slightly different place" trick.

Still, I'd like to know if anyone else noticed the control problems.)

After getting killed by the Wooly boss several times, I quit, and opened the game again later. Fortunately it booted me out of that room so I could go back and finish Nancy's & the 10 balloon quests, but now I've lost the names of elephants on the map. No big deal.

I was the one who asked about how to get to the last balloon. It was in Area 28 - I knew where it was and could see it, but could not reach it. I had to go to a monster filled room and keep attacking until I could level up and increase my jumping abilities until I was able to jump four blocks high.

Agility is very important.

It helped me defeat Wooly as well.

Regarding lagged/ignored/stuck control problems this is something I see in a lot of flash games and have assumed it's endemic to flash and not worth commenting on for particular games. Mostly exiting and restarting the browser solves or at least minimizes the problem for me (it worked for this game). Sometimes the problem will come back after a short time.

Enjoyed the game! As neddo said, can't get enough of that elephant. JIMP's graphic is icing on the cake, and suits elephant "universe" just fine.
I made it to level 29-30 with 2 quests not completed, and still, boss-battle was fairly easy.
The ending scene made me chuckle in its genre-deconstructing absurdity:

elephant forgiving mammoth after the final battle and they sharing their caps for the rest of the day

Equivalent of that would be

Chrono making peace with Lavos, and they happily frolicking on the remains of charred earth, or Shepard forgiving the Reapers, 'couse its in their nature to be like that..

Chipmunk:

The yellow squares are just one of the four attributes, but you can't tell which until you buy it. If I remember correctly, they are often 10 points instead of 5.

Agility is the most important skill for getting all the balloons and definitely for beating wooly. You need to jump over him or you wont survive.

This was such a fun game!

For anyone else needing to level up before facing Wooly, I found that the best way to do it was with area 24. It was easy, with only crawlers and droppers, and gave 34xp when all killed, plus it usually dropped 2 or 3 hearts, each one good for extra xp. It's also through the door from area 28, which gave the 44xp for killing all enemies (the highest amount I found). Although for area 28, you've got to hit both sides, so you'll need agility's extra jump(s) to do it.

@Neddo: What I'm really wondering is if the yellow +? squares are random, or if they're the same from game to game. That could affect which skills you're able to max out.

@joye: I notice in your image of the skill tree, there are two squares you haven't used - the red +5 HP just above and to the left of the center, and the orange +5 AGI hanging off it. Not that one more +5 AGI is going to do much for you. :)

On the main page it says that if you log in you get a special Sushi Cat mini-quest.

How do you access it?

I was wondering if anybody else is having trouble with the sushi cat quest?

I talked to the elephant that appears in the caves when you've logged into armor games and I've got one sushi cat, the one from the caves, but I can't find the others and the elephant that talks about the quest has disappeared once I refreshed the page. I'm still logged in though.


Is anyone else having this problem and knows how to fix it? Thanks!

I have a problem. The game says as if I were playing at another flash site, though I am at "Armor Games". This has stopped me to play. Help? Windows XP
Another tip is what has happened to me before:

I think the yellow question mark icons on the Credits map are randomized for each game. Unlike joye, I got 320 AGI, 270 INT, 280 DEX and 270 CHA.

I have been having so much fun with this game, but now I got my elephant caught in a graphical glitch! Stuck inside a cloud block in 'Area 6'. I hope I get my stuff back if I restart, this game is awesome.

Oh man - I got caught on the same block. A cloud block the top of 'area 6'? I was able to get my game back.. but beware of that level. It isn't stopping me from playing! I'm just going to avoid the block.

I managed to completely max out Agility and none of the others.

I've been taking a look at the map, and as far as I've been able to figure out, you get a minimum of 160 HP, 245 INT, 245 AGI, 240 CHA and 240 DEX. Then there's 19 yellow squares which are probably randomized. Since they give a minimum of 5 points, you could be so unlucky as to not be able to max out any of the four stats. And with a maximum of 10 points, even if you're lucky, you won't be able to max out more than three stats.

Yep, I just restarted the game twice, and both times went to the shortest yellow square. The first time it gave me 10 HP, the second time 10 DEX. So they are indeed randomized.

I wasn't sure what to upgrade so I didn't upgrade the xp grant. I feel as if I will never beat Mr.Woolly Bully.

I didn't see where anyone had mentioned it but you can replay the game with all of your stats intact. That is where I discovered a WEAPON SECRET!

If you go back through and complete the quests it gives you even more weapons. I think I counted at least 10 miniphants flying around and I had two of every weapon chained to my elephant. It made defeating Wooly at the end twice as fast. I'm sure this could be done a few times, so for speed runners if you want to defeat Wooly even faster this is a must.

Additionally the miniphant swarm could make it so that you don't even have to bother firing your weapons when going through levels. Works best if you have a powerful number cruncher.

The Adrenaline ability either allows for regeneration of HP or the amount of HP you get from the hearts.

For you who can't find a particular elephant (or bison), you can look on the map and it shows you where all the elephants are that you have found.

When I got to the lowest point on the map, I dragged out into the blackness underneath Wooly's lair and discovered two tiny rooms way down at the bottom. Neither had any connections or visible doors. Anyone else notice this? Glitch or secret?

I'm in area 6 of the game, and on the floating platform next to the upper door, my elephant got stuck. As in it can't move an inch. I jumped underneath the platform and somehow I stopped moving. Fix this glitch? And is there any way to get... un-stuck? :(

Having leveled up pretty high and purchased every available box of ability points from the topmost mazelike menu, I somehow have:

-1 extra credit...useless and unspendable
-Maxed out stats in dexterity, but 10 extra dedicated points to spend in that category
-A need for 20 agility points, 30 intelligence points and 20 charisma points.

In a word, frustrating. A bothersome problem for the perfectionists among us which kind of ruins an otherwise fun game.

Very fun. :) I'm gonna play it again now.

But just a note on the walkthrough:

I'm pretty sure the "Adrenaline" skill makes your elephant slowly regenerate health over time. Though this is still not a very useful skill because, as you pointed out, dying doesn't really set you back any.

Otherwise great as far as I can tell.
