Part Thirty-Nine: Temple Adventures and Battles Galore
Or wandering around some more and talking to RESEARCH.
Let's take a third option.
Hi, random encounter! Alas, the battle was short lived. Let's just beat up this guy here. Hope you guys like battles!
Looks like it has cancer.
One of these is not like the other~
So is that.
So is that. Thanks for wasting your time!
That's more like it, killer pony.
Sure, it's super effective, but still not a bad hit!
AI is being kinda dumb right now.
And that was completely wasted too.
Well, that's one less problem.
The loudest hippo-bird-like thing.
Why? You have two of their numbers anyway!
It was pointed out that BORUTAMA is not a dodo, which is true (it is based on a hippo). But child me looked at its line and saw more of a bird rather than a hippo, and thus it was a dodo that lives in water. Hey, it made sense for this game! And I still say it doesn't look much like a hippo to me.
it's a thing with cancer.
He mentioned me? Cool. Nice to know that jerks who turn up to laugh at Bek for letting devil e-monsters run right past him then goes and tells other people about this.
Whelp, we know what that means:
I don't like any of these.
Killer pony sure is ignoring a lot this time around. =/
At least they can't hit too hard.
Could he perhaps see something and also do something about it?
Well, that... helps.
A dangerous customer.
Something... isn't right here.
Okay, it did more damage than killer pony. That doesn't make sense.
Oh, I'm okay with this.
Yes, that's how you do it.
Just a bit more! (And now they did the same amount of damage?)
Well... yes. Quite. Hurrah for pointless dead-end rooms!
This sure is a maze alright. I maintain that this is still far better than that darn mountain.
I maybe have thing-intention.
'What?' is my response.
This is true. It's just that it doesn't help me, nor make sense.
See what I mean?
Hi, RESEARCH guy.
Huh, you don't jump at me to cause a battle?
Well, okay. Carry on then.
What a nice guy.
What obnoxious rooms.
This map means I'm nearly back at the start.
A sensible piece of dialogue!
Cool, this guy.
Otherwise though I suppose it is a standard lineup...
He recovered straight away, but that's still annoying!
Keep it up.
And that's... even more so.
If only I had two of you.
Wow that's also pretty weak.
You're weird and slow, but at least you're dependable.
Battles like these would be far faster if I had three competent monsters...
Pony! Remember it?
And we're back here, where I fell down the hole last update.
DON'T YOU LOVE MAZES?
Huh? I beat him, not the other way around. It's just that Bek likes to allow people and devils to run off.
Sure looks stoned.
A more varied team here.
This one can inflict the afraid status, so it needs to go first.
Gotta go fast.
Cleaning up as usual.
A speed and defense buff, I see.
Sit still for a while then.
Oh no you don't.
Let's skip to the end:
That was fun!
That's kinda cool.
Alright, let's go up.
Oh. Well sure, there's no treasure and a dead end there, but
I like that he's talking to his monsters he hasn't called yet.
Not-Sandslash only likes two of these.
And it isn't you!
Oh, boosting your defense. That's alright.
Good, that's a start.
Water fight, with teeth.
(lost). That's more like it.
Good, don't attack Not-Sandslash.
Thank goodness you did that on him at least...
Take that, defense boost.
I always do.
This'll be easy.
See? 255 is the maximum damage one can deal, by the way.
Following the magic of the STONE:
THE POTS ARE NOW DIAMONDS
No, really. Not all pots do this, but if you need more money...
Just got to be careful with where you throw them as the diamonds can go out of the room, bleh.
If only I didn't already have a filled wallet.
Oh, that's better. As long as you listen more.
That's pretty cool.
Yep, pots respawn as well when you go revisit the room. I don't understand this setup though.
Do you want me to like you for asking that question?
I liked how I timed this screenshot.
I don't see him nearby...
The team? Three HERIOPS! AH HA HA.
They have a weird sprite.
That's a start...
Great, this may take some time.
Why do they keep saying burning?
Fight fire with fire. Or afraid with afraid. Or eyes, with... shouting.
Thank goodness their attack sucks!
I guess being bitten might give you a burning sensation?
Or do you just want to burn things?
No, HERIOPS, fire is bad.
Notice the change in Not-Sandslash's health bar.
Now notice that change.
That's not quite the same level...
But going twice in a row helps. I guess it still has that going for it.
The first failure of BORUTA?
And then there was one.
Oh hey, there was a RESEARCH. You're free now!
Man, saving people sucks. Even if I win, I'll just stop playing!
