Part Eighteen: The Wonders of Liz Island!
Or some truly terrifying e-monster designs and stories.


So last off, Miyor told us about their friend in Alice that could make the bad telemarketers go away.

Naturally, I choose to explore Liz Island instead.


Again with the consistent 'guies' spelling. And I wonder what sort of companies they have in this world...?


Oh no, level 19. Basically battling anyone here for now is a walk in the park.


They don't all resort to this I think, but it's the common expression for the angry e-monsters to use.


It can make factories!?


When I stop sightseeing.


Oh no!


...You just battled with me here! =(


Why must I do everything for everyone? =(


What are you trying to say!?


The woes of powerful companies. They have to put up with so much!


As opposed to saying 'You're not allowed here'.

Time to walk in the water surronding the island then as we can't go in the woods yet.


Oh, look, a...WAMITERA! Whatever it is.


Strange battle cry, but I did just that.




Makes it sound like Bek is writing these entries...


If you remember the telephone competition...we're next to where it was! In fact:


Selected part (sorta bottom left if you can see it) is the cursor on part of Liz Island with the water around it surronding the forest part we cannot yet access. Above is the first village with MUSA and to the left the second. Alice is all the way on the right with Palan next to it, and M-City Virginia is in-between it and Liz Island. (hurr hurr)

Basically - the world is arranged like a toddler's attempt at tetris.


How does one give an e-wave anyway? Is it like winning an internet?


Can I choose the revolvers we got earlier? =D


I guess it's a better attempt than the previous person's...


These villagers sure are confusing.


Gee, what a boring island!


The what?


What?


Oh. =(


OSIE's evolution! He lost weight.


Oh god he heard my comment didn't he.


Why would you even ask me about golf and no it will not help you much in losing weight.


I can imagine a player hitting the golf (not the golf ball, but EVERYTHING GOLF) into a hole, and the caddy exclaiming 'OK' in response. Or 'Difficul'.


OSIE...plays...golf?




What questionable thing will come from this!?


The question really is - is it better than what gets played on the radio!?


This is a question. (Yes/No)


I am interested in two things. One - what was the actual question in Japanese? Was it so inane? And secondly - why am I being told this


Uh...hey guys, meet another new e-monster!


Yay for strange new attacks.


Maybe that's why they are electric monsters...?


SDAJHASDHKSDPWQOI

JABBA THE HUTT TWO: ATTACK OF THE EVOLUTION


A most terrifying attack.

But not as terrifying as the appearance seriously why.



I wouldn't follow either.


A considerly less scary attack in which some...smoke-looking thing appears for half a second? Nonetheless, WAMITE (which is, by the way what I think they should have called the new Vegemite) dislikes it.


Should just charge GERLIN for assault! D=


That is pretty good too though.


NOOOOOOO


NOOOO THAT'S NOT THE NO BUTTON WHY DID I ACCEPT


...I am not making it up - he really did call me shortly after beating GERLIN. =/


DO YOU MEAN THEY HAVE CARS IN THIS STUPID WORLD


...

If ever there was a time when you could hang up a phone call in the middle of a conversation, now is it.


I could say the same thing about you, believe me.

Actually screw this I hate Liz Island now.


Next update we'll actually do the backtracking and do the stuff for Liz Island so we can get the hell away from Jabba the Hutt.

Another couple weeks, another update! And a minor point to mention along with this too! As some readers may know on some sites, this is not the first time I actually attempted this LP. Back then I had foolishly went with imageshack which then screwed me over by suddenly changing max number of images limits on accounts. [Photobucket and also dropbox are much better with this].

This part here is actually the point where I had gotten up to before that happened and I was forced to replace all the images to avoid them being removed on me. Onwards is all new content! \o/ Let's see if I can get to the end this time around.


Part Nineteen: Back to the sea!
Or some fun backtracking and abusing an item.


Last time, we were escaping from a horrible thing and heading back to Alice to find some guy who can scare away e-waves or something. Palan is quick to get through so we'll just skip that...


Oh, hey, OSIE.


What...you mean fighting?


Oh hey I'm wondering about that too! I doubt answering these inane questions 'correctly' makes you bigger, so... let's go close. Because I can't get far away from any of you.


And whose fault is that, hmm? I suppose by close they mean closer in terms of friendship rather than physical distance though... oh dear, that's a horrid thought given what sort of creatures may try to come 'close'. -_-

At any rate, time to make use of the shops in this town! I'm already pretty underleveled and later on this will only be worse, so I might as well grind. However, there is a way to make grinding easier!


Step one: Obtain P-card.


Step two: talk to this person and do this [reform evolve] with P-card.


Step three: get exp and repeat once more!

And step four is to have a single battle, and you level up. 2 P-cards give you half the exp of your current level, making it an amazing item. So soon enough I get Kuribute to the 30s.


Yay for the long-charge move! You won't use it too often, unless you like overkill in random wild encounters and don't mind waiting a while, in which case you will use it very often.


Funny in the way that makes my brain bleed.


'No' is pretty funny.


'It' was funny? =/


Is everyone going to swear at me again? Let's find out!


...Nope. Huh.


What? isunderstanding not.


Well, at least none of you look like Gumi.


I guess they are sorry for their swearing, but why can't they apologise now? Afterwards what?


What sake are you talking about? The alcoholic drink? O_o


Useless? I... they still don't make sense seeing this is clearly not the case.


I'll just pretend you said the last two words and leave.


Yes. But hang on, how was he going to break it anyway? Chainsaw? His e-monster? Mashing his face into it?


Huh?


I think someone coded in the wrong dialogue. Or this one is just plain old cranky. =/


The sea still sucks let's leave already.


=/

Remember kids about the dangers of sexting!


YOU DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE


Oh hey I think I found the guy we're looking for.


Seriously what kind of name is Jinxi anyways.


Bek refuses to answer and continues the conversation.


Something!


Well how does one treat a Jinxi anyways?


Yes, your power of standing in the corner will surely send everyone running!


Everyone talks funny?


Oh yeah, that rule. 'Resolve everything with fighting'.


NOOO THE BLACK SQUARES


WHY ARE YOU CALLED JINXI WHEN YOU ARE REALLY RANBRAGE


Note the high level. He's not very strong in attack, but he DOES have an attack with a high chance of paralysing in Needle, making him very hard for your team of mid-20s. That is, if you didn't abuse P-cards beforehand. Especially on a monster with a type advantage. >:]


Come, McBird! Observe a one-hit kill.


No no, you're not killed yet, Not-JINXI. Wait a moment!


Oh fine. You managed to make your super-duper attack stronger.


Now, wasn't that fun?


I already did!


Str for STRONG.


This text is pointless!


And then he disappears.

Hurrah for that though! Now we can go back to Liz Island in the next update.

Time for the first 100% new content update! Oh boy!

Part Twenty: Down with the Telemarketers
Or using RANBRAGE for one thing.



Last time, we beat up a bishop looking monster. Let's see what it can do!


It can be... extremely friendly and has its name change to o.

I have no idea why. Let's just go back to Liz Island.

On the way there:


'Attack enemy by laping two wing.' Hmm. A very cultured monster, this.


That was quick.

Liz Island Theme


Sure did! Let's just call them.


I guess this is how you do it, from memory...


You... want to give Not-Sandslash a R-gun?


...He beat you up, RANBRAGE.


No, I'm using telepathy.


Wait, where-


Oh.


And from the heavens did descend RAMBRAGE, and all was Engrish.


See? I told you he descended from heaven.


Christ isn't very happy at the moment it seems.


It's awfully hard to understand what exactly is being said around now. =/


Like what, exactly?


You tell that Christ what to do, Bek.


At least he is a well natured guy, I suppose? Or was Bek making a threat there?


Yes, Mr. RAMBRAGE.


That's quite some special effects there, I guess.


Wait, what?

Didn't we just want to try and stop it being transmitted? :/


Or did we? I'm not sure anymore. I don't think the game is sure either.


In other words...

What happened was that RAMBRAGE did stop the e-wave. (Whatever that is exactly). But it still works fine for Bek's phone.

Because it is too special.

Good work explaining yourself out of that plothole, game! I don't think the Engrish is even at fault for this here.


And by we...


...we mean Bek.


Well, to be fair we've already seen what a walkover they are, and that was before the extra grinding done to beat RAMBRAGE...


Great teamwork! What you don't see is the sheep thing walk into a house and stay there for the rest of the game instead of helping out. :V


Damn straight RAMBRAGE isn't quite as quick at bashing up stuff as you.


Let's do this.


Deal with it.


I suppose that's one way to deal with it.


Who have come back?

As with the bad guys (or guies) in the sea or caves, they disappear once you beat them and force them to say something confusing.


Okay.



Yay for levels.


Ah ah, you are right.


I'm just showing a few of the snippets of odd text you get from these mooks.


It has been back indeed!

Soon enough they're all gone, and so Bek goes to report back to...whoever that sheep guy is.


That's... one way to put it, Bek?


It's odd how half the time plot-concerned NPCs end up behind the text bubbles.


What an odd term.


Probably a fat one. Gee, I hope it's not Jabba the Hutt. =(


Sounds legit!


Bek makes a long boring spiel about wanting more friends.


Oh, you're going to help us?


Clearly not. What was really meant by the above is 'go find him yourself lol'. =/


The heck did sheep guy disappear off to...?


Previously, this one was standing in the way! Now we can actually see the inner parts of the island!


This has been another poorly constructed sentence presented by Telefang.


Trees everywhere, and not a master of island in sight. Guess what we look for next update!?

Where is everyone? =(

Part Twenty-One: Hunt for the Master
Or bashing up a bunch of sheep and getting some ice cream.


Luckily this isn't a difficult maze by any means, but we still need to go find this master.


Are you the master?


...I'll take that as a no.


Why did you move to the left side?


We're definitely going places in this conversation.


Maybe what?


Oh.


Not the sheep thing that was on the island, I might add. Or at least, I'm pretty sure this one isn't.


The level of it is at least comparable to Not-Sandslash, but it's still a simple battle.


I believe Bek is asking this, given the following dialogue. A fair question to ask of a talking fighting ram with a tiny hat.


We want money.


Oh. =(


Can't make what? Money?


Hmm, maybe he has money.


'It' was there? =/


Oh.

What the game doesn't tell you is that you need to find two more of these guys to be able to find out where the master is. Nothing exciting happened between the first and second encounters, so:


Maybe for Engrish training.


I never really get why Bek is so eager to make new friends Maybe he likes violence, given that making friends usually involves bashing them up.


More than ten seconds? Dang.

'
These WARATA are not very good at making calls, given nobody ever comes to help them in the fight. Some training they do.


=|


Dang those lying sheep.


NO.


Well, I did find the tree gate to the next place. So that's something.


And thus we encounter KESI's evolution: ICECREAM

Now in the delicious cancer variety!


I bet you never had your ice cream Miao at you.



It's the ice cream that bites back!


This game. It has things like this. Idk what the pirates were thinking in using that as a name for a monster.


But I don't think there's many other monsters that fit the name so well though. ;p


OSIE meanwhile has a much nicer looking evolution, and a less edible name!


OSIE also lost a fair bit of weight. Good on him!


...No.

Sadly, this heralds the start of a lot of phone calls while I try to find other monsters.


Well, you still could use some weightwatchers. >:[ And I am not, you are calling me! And yet, the correct answer (at least for getting FD) is Yes...


Everyone? Gosh, I hope not, especially considering how many things I hate.


Damn.


I'll opt for Why?, as in Why are you saying this to me? (Also not a question to begin with!)


I don't think I want to know about this story, really. =(


This has nothing to do with anything, PUNIKA! =(


Oh?


Huh.

Well, you can't do anything about this guy, but we've seen him in a few places already. Hmm.

Guess we better meet the third sheep guy then.


Oh great, another guy who is quick to jump to conclusions.


Bek, that is not nearly enough words to say what you wanted to.


Somehow the sheep gets that out of what Bek said. =/


???


Of course.


There, happy?


I don't like the sound of that. =/


Somehow I don't think ET would be out of place here.


*facepalm*


It was a glorious battle. Several telemarketers lay still on the sands of Liz Island.


We were already there!


Ok.


Well, Bek, are you going to say thanks?


I guess not. Anyways we found the master, and he looks fat. We also got a call from RANBRAGE.


No they weren't, quit telling fibs.


Stupid RANBRAGE. Anyways, sorry to keep you waiting, Mr Master.


As in, this very spot you are standing on. And maybe a step to the right as well. Yeah.


Your money!


Well, everyone likes to make friend, Bek. But not everyone can have friend and money.


You have to be qualified for these things now?


In other words: 'I don't care if you are old, FIGHT ME! I'll MAKE you be my friend!'


I don't really like how he talks. =/


BANGUPAL

Even as a kid this whole arc felt out of place. Sure, you could say the same of the whole game, but for some reason this part was especially so. The 2nd half of Liz Island is 'find this master guy and be his friend', and he's not even that good. RANBRAGE was two updates back and two levels higher!

He can just have the regular battle theme, even.

Regular Battle Theme


erties! Also sky type. Weird looking owl.


Sums up WAMITE, I suppose.


Armory gets the type advantage here, so why not. So polite!


Sure, that's a lot of health...


But we do half of that on him despite the type disadvantage, and that's a bigger fraction of his health.


And then he crits Not-Sandslash. Spoke too soon! :V


But this battle is still rather simple...


Now we get a critical hit our way, for instance.


And ARMORY would have probably killed him anyway.


But you're good at hiding! We had to beat up three sheep to be able to notice you!


Not-Sandslash is currently flexing his muscles.


MagMon! Whatever that means.


All the tuber.


But we already have too many! =(


Did he just talk to the door...?


Oh? Is it the power to go home?


I... think I can?


Or are these the powers?


And then he disappears. Let's never use him! \o/

But he did give us some useful powers. Although how he did that is beyond me. Maybe he made Bek buff.

Remember those treasure chests from previous towns? We can access them now! But we'll bother with that some other time. Items aren't really important to progress in this game anyways save for the grinding sort.


Onwards to the next place!


That sure is a name to call your lake. Let's explore it next update.

I've already taken the screenshots for the next location (yay for having to play more again!), so I just need to sort through them and then do the comments on them. There's a few updates in that bunch alone.

This game is fantastic. I might play it myself except that I fear I'd have absolutely no idea what would be going on at any given point and I wouldn't' be able go figure out what to so.

So instead I just watch his and it's fantastic.

MagMon might mean "magical monster". He's probably legendary, being the Master and stuff.

A fair fear to have, given that's what happened to me many a time as a kid. And you'll see more of this soon enough too!

The original translation for that was apparently Demon Denjuu (Denjuu being the Mon/Monster part), so where mag came from for that is odd. Mr. Master of the Island is not the only MagMon out there too... hum, he is a demon. Weird classification there too, really.



Part Twenty-Two: Let's go fishing!
Or getting confused by RESEARCH and doctors.



Let's go see this oddly named lake.

Palan got a new theme, as did Liz Island, so we should get a new tune, right...?

Nope, back to the standard overworld theme! We will get a different tune later, but this is the theme for the update.


Considering we've seen no lakes of note before, I suppose we'll take his word for it.


Granted, this is the second square of the area we've seen (third if we count the tree), but that's a hell of a lake right there. =p

Also yay a forced phone call.


A lake.


And Sungki is not easily impressed!


What is with everyone and wanting to fish the moment they see a body of water?


A logical conclusion.


Don't ask Bek, he just knows about baseball and Peach Boy.


Alright, that's an acceptable amount of water, and I suppose that's the antenna tree door too. But unlike the sea we can't actually go walking through water. =/ Talk about a lame power!


What was the point of this map design? @_@ (Answer - seemingly none).


The people around here like sitting in corners.


A star thing! Let's hit it.


It's a good idea to recruit some 'friends' around here given everything else takes three turns minimum to reach you!


Yay type advantage.


That doesn't sound like a good dex entry...


What persons who came in?


That's slightly more informative, I suppose. Guess we should check them out after some more exploring.


Oh, one of these guys again! Useful to get, but sadly this one did not give us their number.


And then this one appears. Another evolution of a monster seen all the way back in Tulunk.


And he's friendly!


And very good at hiding, apparently.


What are you doing in the corner there?


Biology is an interesting choice of words there. Useable, but strange for speech. I suppose that's the mystery of this place - strange thing in the lake, and some guys are scared of it.


And some guys just want to be on TV.


Another evolution! This place is full of them.


A straightforward entry here. That's enough of getting friends as backup - time to see a guy with a unique sprite.


He's just chilling.


First time of...what exactly? =/


Can't you see, Bek? He's being a plot relevant character.


Looked more like you were just staring at the lake, really.



The quest of friendship! Given we have pages upon pages of phone numbers, I'd have thought that we've already done enough of that, but clearly not.


No.


For goodness sake, Bek, don't encourage him! He's called DR BRAG, after all.


Nope.


A good question.


So basically it's Telefang's version of a legendary Pokemon. Just supernal. Meanwhile Dr. Brag turned his back on us.


Well, we found a fat master of the island, but I don't think that's quite it.



So Bek has heard of it before, or not? Abuh.


Come now, you can't just give us this conversation for no reason. We're going to bump into one of these supernal things sooner or later.


No.


I like how he didn't wait for an answer from Bek.


Wait, did you say that?


Bek, are you being brainwashed? =|


I don't like how Bek was talked into this helping thing. Again. =|

The doctor then goes up. Let's follow him!


Hey, where did he go?


Good question, random NPC!


Dang. Well, we did hear about some guy running away back on the left side of the lake, so he's probably the same person as what Dr. BRAG mentioned. Might as well go there.


This happened on the way there!


Found him!


That's a casual way to begin a conversation.


RESEARCH? Oh dear, the game's assigning names before it should, or maybe when it shouldn't...


That's an interesting reaction...


...As is that.


Well, at least this plot development is a bit better than the attack of the telemarketers.



SANARBA?


If you cast your minds back to Kelina Village, you'll recall an NPC explaining this. They were into pharmacy! What a useful detail.


Wait, what?


Woah what no you are a person. Called RESEARCH, apparently. Uh.

So basically, we've got an escaped scientist working for another, who is saying they are an e-monster created by their boss. Who treats e-monsters like draught animals.

Okay.


Well, maybe the dock will make more sense.


Well, are you going to say anything else, Mr OCTOBRE RESEARCH man?


Okay, I suppose.


...

Let's just go.



Oh look it's the doctor. Let's ask him-


So the crazy guy was right?


Huh. How about that.

Sadly that earlier line is surely a mistranslation on the translator's side, and if anything is a line that shouldn't even be in the game. (Maybe something to that effect was unused text in the game though, and they just shoved it here?) All this does is just make things confusing. Or more so, given how this game has gone so far.


Ha, ha, ha, ha! Why is this funny?


This OCTOBRE jumps and then disappears back into the water.


Who are you talking to?


No, seriously, why are you monologuing loudly at the lake?


Oh wait.


Do something, Bek and Not-Sandslash!


Nicely done. Hurrah for the convenient tree!


I'm not really sure if Bek is speaking here, but let's just go with it.


This screenshot is not a bad sum up of how confusing that sequence was.


Palsy by sticks!


Well, I suppose something weird is up. Let's check it out.


And the first room greets us with statues.

We'll explore inside in the next update!

So the Master is a demon now? Sounds very dangerous... And the statues... Are those... angels? The Master must have summoned them to scare the Doctor so that he could steal his soul, and then he summoned the ghost of an evil scientist to possess him... Why else would the Doctor be making supernal tentacle monsters? Can you get a watch somewhere?

Oh, the master of the island was always a demon. =p

And I'll agree with you that the statues are creepy. The music doesn't help with the mood too, which is I suppose credit to the tune. That'll be linked in the next update.

The same word ("ma") in Japanese can translate to both "magic" and "demon," apparently. Whoever translated the bootleg probably saw "ma" and translated it as magic, shortening it to "mag" because they couldn't fit the full word. (...apparently they didn't consider the possibility that "DemMon" would almost spell out "demon" if they had gone with the other translation...)

Hmm, that sounds like it'd hold water, that explanation. After all the translator certainly wasn't very good at it! Cheers for offering that.

Yeah, I'll confess that those sort of references will go over my head. =p



Part Twenty-Three: Infiltrating the lab!
Or forgetting this place has to do with lakes.



Time to check out a lab with creepy statues! Standard fare I suppose.

Lab Theme
I think the theme here is pretty decent in setting up the mood for the location!


Hi there, bookcases and person.


He's a jumpy sort, but I guess you can say that of everyone here.


He's also of a battling sort.


I love this sprite. RESEARCH clearly wants to party down in the lab.


This sprite however I hate. Meet one of the more annoying e-monsters in the game!


It's not that it's strong or anything. It's just one move it knows that makes it annoying. You'll see in a bit.


This first fight is just a 2-on-2, so it does help to recruit someone from outside the lab, as I did here. Of course, RESEARCH has two SHERSTLA.


Well, SHERSTLA is doing a good job at that, I suppose. The starfish isn't the most defensively built monster though.


Which one is which!?


Well, now I can tell the difference between the two of them. One is horribly hurt!


Ah, here it is.


Yes, that thing did just flied in the sky. What's weird about that? :V

But what's special about this? Well, it's like the move Fly in the Pokémon games - you can't hit them while they are in the sky (even if they are inside a building). Which is annoying if say they are the only remaining enemy - when it's your turn you can't land a hit. Fly isn't a damaging move either - they'll just return when it finishes (and it can last multiple turns!) and do a different attack. Or Fly again.


And when there's two of them...

Luckily:


Somehow Not-Sandslash stops this one.


And our starfish finishes it off.


At least Not-Sandslash has a non-attacking move while we wait...


Trading blows...


...And smashing for good measure.


EXP boost for fighting RESEARCH!


And now I have an annoying monster on my side! But it's not very fun annoying the CPU. =/ Oh well. The last monster we knock out is the one that gives their number in these battles, but here it didn't matter given they were the same.


These scientists don't take losing well. Or maybe it's a side effect of being near water?


I like how the dex tries to offer an explanation for it knowing how to fly. Oh well, onwards!


Remember how the Master of the Island gave us those powers? He must have known that we'd encounter terrible and difficult puzzles that'd require said powers to overcome them!


However will we solve it!?


Oh.


C'mon, this isn't even a puzzle.


Or maybe it was a trap.


...Okay.


Ma-gun stands for machine gun.

Wait, what?


Bek celebrates this finding by demonstrating his other power - throwing vases.


And then we encounter this guy.

He's a decent one to recruit if you're not using Not-Sandslash, I suppose.


Yes, I do see.


Pow.


An apt description for how it attacks.


Oh look, a guy higher up guarding treasure. Let's work our way there.


No, I just want the treasure.


Bek doesn't have a license.


Work hard. Play hard.


For some reason this particular message of BANDAs is amusing.


Such friendly opponents.


Contrary to the dex entry for it, it doesn't spin about to fly.


Not-Sandslash decides to take it out on the non-flying foe.


It doesn't even pose much of a threat considering in usual circumstances it's down in two hits. But then Not-Sandslash is a touch overlevelled for this area.


RIKORIS however is just all kinds of unimpressive.


HIT. A great attack name.


Combo victory!


Yay, more of these! @_@


It's the sea all over again.


Not another swearing scientist!


So he changed?


That's not an answer. >:[

This guy is a side evolution of ARMORY.


And he has this guy too.


Not a bad attack!


Oh wait.


BAIBU though manages to dodge a hit.


And then fails to hit itself.


BANDA shows us how it's done.


BANDA is certainly more frail than Not-Sandslash, given this wasn't a critical hit.


That one however was.


Yay, all the stat boosts.


:V


Not quite the right wording, but at least they tried.


Another wild monster, just running about in the lab. Does seem well-maintained to me.


They're not very polite, I have to say.


The most inspiring of dex entries.


Well, at least he said please.


And then we meet the melted version of Jabba.


A 3-on-3 battle here!


They're not very dangerous, but still this battle can be a trouble if you don't have a plan or an overlevelled monster.


Oh boy


Sure, it does rather little damage. But it's a melted Jabba spewing on you. =(


TAMPALA shows how unthreatening it is. It has a type advantage here.


PHANEL isn't too shabby on its own.


This is one of the more annoying parts this battle can throw up - status.


It cured the next turn for BANDA, but note that it takes up the whole turn.

Luckily that's only one of two troublesome parts of this battle.


\o/


It's not even a damaging attack and it was stopped.


This is the other annoying part. Status all round for BANDA!



PHANEL doesn't need telling to know what it should hit.


Really unimpressive.


So Not-Sandslash puts it out of its misery.


Great, it just became a sitting duck! Or a sitting melted duck. I'm not sure.


So close!


So not close.


Ew.


Oh, we do.


It has a bomb!?


This piece of news disturbs me greatly.


That RESEARCH sure can jump!


'person who barged in' is a popular phrase of this game, by the way.


This guy has crabs. :V


And a killer pony!


Let's get the pony's number!


Not today, we're overlevelled. Or at least Not-Sandslash is.


Banda is actually doing more damage than the pony.


On the flip side, it's faster than it. But in the end:


Aw yeah.


Maybe it's an advertisement? It could be for a company called ****, and they sponsored this lab and brainwashed the sea monsters.


Makes as much sense as this game after all. We just found a missile lying about in a lab.


Yeah, if only we could use such items ourselves. =(


More of these guys!


??? I have no idea what that means, but I do know this guy has another melted Jabba. Which means:


:V


Always a fun move. Let's see what sort of a defence it can put up!


Okay.


Someone's angry today.


And by someone, I mean everyone here.


Maybe that's why they're so grumpy. Stuck in a lab, guarding against intruders and roaming monkeys and demons. Oh my.


Really, overall this section is oddly easy. Then again Liz Island was too... I suppose it's just a darn easy part of the game, if you discount RAMBRAGE.


Everyone's helping!


What is with these rooms?


Sure, okay.


And what is a starfish doing in a lab anyways?


BANDA cares not for logistic, he just cares for levels. Sadly he doesn't gain any SP (speed), as that's something that is rather lacking. =/


Boredom?


This guy has two DORIA. The battle isn't very interesting though.


Yay more friends.


Nay more swears.


This room here is curious. Nearly every other guard will challenge you to a battle if you get too close, but these require being talked to.


Took you long enough to realise Bek was not a party-hard RESEARCH.


The other curious thing is that these are 2-on-3 battles.


Not-Sandslash however is very quick to level up the score.


And really, I'm lucking out here on what is normally a tougher battle. But then I never kept Not-Sandslash in my party up to here.


I should keep a counter or something.


These things at the bottom of the stairs are... more stairs, perhaps. They act as a form of one-way barricade...


...but not in this instance, as you can still walk around them. I do not know why there are here.


Do they include the wild monkeys?


Oh, of course.


I like this part of the killer pony. Healing for all!


Rude. =(


Two pony fight! But these are low levelled and not worth using. =/


So we'll just beat them up instead.


Did we need to be more overlevelled? I think we did.


No u


Does this mean the roaming monkeys, demons AND starfish are not strangers?


Killer Pony dislikes e-magic.


REALLY dislikes.


Not a bad level there. Note that Not-Sandslash is sitting on level 38.


A Mo-Gun.

One wonders what weapons we'll continue to find. But that'll have to wait for the next update!

Yes, I'm sure they'll get along just fine.

And apparently so, if we are to believe that throwaway line! The next update will wrap up the events of this area, so you'll see what this doctor is like.

Part Twenty-Four: Doctor's Orders
Or encountering the first really over-levelled boss.


Who leaves guns lying around in their lab anyway? I mean, really. I guess they don't have any safety regulations around here.


Bah.


No, and I'm glad for it.


I won't question your judgement on this, SIGERA.


I'll deal with you later.


I wonder if he shouts this at the wild monsters too. Or are they his friends?


BUBARIA are nothing much to talk about, really. They have some bulk, but...


Nothing Not-Sandslash can't handle.


No, BUBARIA, those are cobras.

You are a crab.

That face isn't even intimidating.


Well put, good sir.


Hopping down the staircase things! And that's all they're good for. Like one-way ledges, I suppose.


A-gun, or just a gun? You decide.


Oh my, sorry, uh

You might want to clean that up.


Now now, don't go blaming me. There wasn't a door and this isn't a bathroom!


Thanks.


What are you doing here? Hiding from the guy above?


I don't know, would he?


Gosh, sorry.


The R is for ridiculous.


Another puzzle!


Gee, I wonder.


Right, got rid of him and now we're placing the last crate...


Gosh, that's rude of you, Not-Sandslash! :o


The trickiest of puzzles. The random jar is there to add to the sheer madness of it all.


Oh.


I think we have a disgruntled employee here.


I'm sensing a recurring theme here.


Oh, something that's not a gun! Although one can't be too sure about these things.


And after that detour, we're back on track. The statues help!


What?


Guess someone has to file the paperwork.


Yay!


Nay. >:[


The puzzles are still dead easy.


Oh yeah, I remember you from the start of this update. How sneaky.


No.


There's no kill quite like overkill. ~


Yay again!


Nay again!


Let's try down first.


Aha, more... 'treasure'.


Good guess.


Really, this is the highlight of that battle.

What guns will we get this time!?


Just a regular gun? Oh.


That doesn't have Gun in the name!


Oi! Where are my [Letter]-guns?


Oh good, I'm going there right now.


-_-


Yes, this must be the place. More statues than usual.


Almost as cool as using the force. Let's go, Bek.


Uh


We came all this way to find an empty room save for more statues?


Not even a lab table or something.


!?


Oh, there you are. Couldn't see you under all those text boxes. You know how it is.



The moment of truth-wait, we already know the answer.


That's not very funny.


Sounds simple enough when you say it like that.


Uh-oh.


...?


AAAAAA where did it come from


No. >:[


There are two things to take notice of here. The first is that we're fighting an oversized pink elephant-octopus thing.


The second is that it's level 50, a good 11 levels over our already over-levelled Not-Sandslash!

Pistol and Horn luckily are not great attacks, although G-SEA is pretty cool looking for the charge-up attack. But that level difference can be a big challenge.


Luckily we have two type advantages. :V

Boss Battle Theme!


Let's do this.


This is why BANDA is useful here. That's still a decent chunk of HP though.


This however is fantastic. =D


It's pretty fast for an e-monster given the level difference, so one must be careful. That's where killer pony comes in.


Ah, one of my favourite status effects to use.


Yes, we can see.


This battle is going very well, but it helps that I know how to play the game and actually stuck with the starter who has a type advantage here. I suspect the next area's boss will be decent too.


That was quick.


Whoops.


\o/


Jump all you like, you lost!


Sorry to disappoint you there.


Yeah, like Not-Sandslash, I suppose! And it's not okay if they are Jabba the Hutt!


Aww.


Oh yeah, you're still there. Funny, that, usually defeated e-monsters disappear.


Bek just stands around like a douche who just broke into someone's lab, took all the guns inside and beat up a giant elephant sea monster.


He was your friend in the first place?


Will the thing forgive the doctor!?


Meanwhile Sungki decides to interrupt this moving moment.


Can't touch this ~


So casual there, Bek.



No.


I think we know Bek is going to say yes though.


Gotta go fast.


Which key? The one we already used?

Then the doctor speaks.


Okay...?


Where did that name come from?


No seriously, game, why does he have a name now?


STOP IGNORING MY QUESTIONS

Oh well let's see if anybody noticed.


No TV moment for you!


These people really wanted to be on TV, didn't they?


And then BANDA bothers to get an increase in speed. Bit late there, monkey.


I'm wondering what the doctor did exactly to his supposed friend, and why we just let him off the hook there and why we only now know his name.


Uh-oh.



'He has the cleanliness' is one of my favourite quotes now. And no, OSIE, we're not giving you any of our guns.


You're welcome, I suppose.


Oh, is this how we're going to get to the next antenna tree?


Time for an acid trip again.


How does this even work!?


Oh well, we're here now. I suppose we'll explore this village in the next update.

Part Twenty-Five: Knock Knock
Or walking about trying to find someone sane.




Right, what sort of crazies will we encounter next?


Huh, just buildings to greet us.
Overworld Theme!

Another overworld-theme town. Nothing special about it then I guess in that sense.


...You have a house, Not-Sandslash?

Or wait, does this one just belong to another one? It's locked and none of our [KEYS] work.


He has a house too?


Okay, odd information about houses which we can't enter at all. Okay.


Well, there's a shop. And grass.


And this thing again.


Interestingly, for our first fight we have a bunch of monsters who can show up straightaway!


Of course, 3-1 battles are darn easy in this circumstance, and there's really not much besides this e-monster in this area.


But here, we can see Bansis Village is right next to Liz Island. Although it seems the water, lack of direct antenna tree and barrier between there and here doesn't stop the e-monsters much. Not that great a system.


The shop is fine, although maybe not in the sense of its products.


A blender for what, exactly?


I don't think it's called that.


That's exactly what I want to have.


Is it even a song? Or maybe it's what you guys listen to. I'll take your word for it.


Whose grandpa?


Oh, there was this really old clock
It sat next to grandpa's spare sock~


Oh hey, tiny hat ram reappeared! They're wild here.


Excellent! There's a rather interesting dex entry for this, although I'm not sure interesting is quite the word I'm looking for...


Who even came up with this, and how? ...Actually, I probably don't want to know.


Who needs insta-growing grass?


Well this is an odd feature in the middle of town.


Nothing to see here, it seems.


Oh, one of these buildings. We saw one back in Kelina. It somehow has a tree inside it


Of course. Wonder what's in there.


It smells like egg inside.


This might actually be the antenna tree door. Guess we need plot to open it up.


Oh hey, that douche!


I'll note that there was actually a reason in me getting all these screenshots.


Oh look, a green thing in the corner! But let's check these houses first.


Whelp, all locked.


It's alive!

...Not-Sandslash, why is this the only thing we've seen here besides the shopkeepers?


Couldn't you have asked that a few times earlier in these game, Bek? I can think of a few examples...


Besides the shopkeepers, that is. Not very fond of Moving, really.


Did the engrish overcome them?


Honestly Bek why do you keep doing this to yourself?


Seems normal to me so far.


Wait what


Bek the hero to the plot as always.


Well, we were already there, and there wasn't anything interesting.


That won't stop us checking again though!


A for effort right there.


Well... he is a good hider, I'll give him that.


Oh.


...How did you hear that, and why do you call it sth.?

That was the entire phone call, by the way. No questions, or details, or concern. Just 'I heard some stuff is going on over there!' I suppose it's the game's way to tell you where to go if you (somehow) get lost, but...


Well, still nothing...


...?


Bek isn't a bug. >:[ Not-Sandslash... well, who knows?


'Sup.


Bek gets right to the point.


So I guess this guy is the kidnapper. Okay.


Stompy mc stomp stomp.


Not a bad idea, Bek. Cutting to the chase to the boss battle there.


Oh. Can... you do that?


What?


What what?


Hey where did you go

What did that mean?

Go...here, without the bridge? Order?

I need a drink.


KESI are you home and do you have any drinkable and safe liquids


AAAAAAAAAA


How did we get here-


Wrong again? What? I wasn't wrong before.

Why did poking KESI's house teleport us here?


Well... maybe we should try what you said. You mentioned GUMI's house first... stupid Jabba line.


How did we suddenly end up here? Why are we in front of...


...yeah, that guy's house.


waaaaaaaaah


=|


Now to explain what's happening! This is a badly worded puzzle in which you need to end up in the middle of this water feature, which can be done by visiting houses in the correct order. Talking to a house teleports you... somehow.

I have no idea why or how, and this really stumped me as a kid. In part because I didn't write down what he said about an order. This part also has a curious effect in that the more often you screw up the faster this kidnapper appears to say you screwed up.

Luckily emulators allow for screenshots! So this puzzle is much easier thank to them serving as notes. And so:



Well that was fun. -_-


We made it!


But...

...we just did. =|


What? Why not? First we can't fight, and then after this stupid puzzle you won't do this anyway? You suck, kidnapper thing.


Yes, what I said, Bek.


Oh. Okay then, I guess?


Wait what now



Another teleportation sequence. Great. -_-


And now we're suddenly here. @_@ Why? I don't see any villagers.


Where are we, Not-Sandslash?


Oh, here. Okay then- how did we get from the island to inside this building?


Oh boy.


HITODE you are not helping why would you ask this


I'm not cheating any exam, unless this exam is one on my remaining sanity. In that case I need all the help I can get.


Talking starfish are terrible helpers.


Alright, what is all this about?

Lab Theme

This tune comes up again too. That's promising.


Oh, of course. Should have been obvious - teleportation continues to be the theme.


Oh, so you're not a guard or something. Are you kidnapped? If so, why are you just wandering around here.


More teleportation panels!


That's a good question, actually. What is the motive of this kidnapper? He just laughed a lot and refused to fight.


Oh fun. Options.


More fun - a guard! Let's beat him up next time, in I-can't-believe-it's-not-warp-mazes.
