The Story So Far

After finding Horteka Village on the Western Continent and rescuing a high priest from a Valuan labor camp, Vyse and crew are directed to the lost city of Rixis, where the Green Moon Crystal is hidden. Little did they know that King Ixa’taka had already taken the crystal and began activating the second Gigas to drive out Valua. The crew of the Little Jack managed to heroically drive off the Valuan army and the rampaging Gigas, obtaining the Green Moon Crystal. The road is now cleared to the North Ocean, home of the Valuan Empire in the hopes of finding the Yellow Moon Crystal.

Thoughts

Before clearing this continent, there were two major dungeons, the labor mine and Rixis, While the mine itself was riddled with some annoying traps, its layout was elaborate enough to enjoy, even after being sent back to the beginning of it a few times.

As for Rixis, I once again am thoroughly impressed with the design. Just as it was with the Temple of Pyrim, the design fit the continent’s outdoor feel, as it was a ruined city in the clouds.

I have also unlocked what seems to be Vyse’s final super move, Pirate’s Wrath. This move is incredibly powerful and almost killed the Rixis dungeon’s boss in one blow. It’s become a useful skill, even if it takes a few turns to charge.

Lastly, I’ve noticed a growing trend of being swarmed with monsters at each encounter. With four party members, I have been attacked with up to eight monsters at a time. Most of the monsters are weak and easy to kill, but it can get a bit tedious at times.

I’m getting into the heart of the Valuan Empire next. Who knows what it will bring!
