Congratz to those who finished the game!!!

But for me, after my first mistake, coz I battled the monster with 5 hours ending up with bad ending; now the second time, I want to beat it with the good ending...

These motivation, keeps me extra carefull as the game progress... thats why I dont want to enter inside Comet, not unless gone to Guardian Moon and fulfilled the necessary tasks there.

Me too, Dom. I waited an extra four days until I found the secret to the last missing gem and modified the data file to fix the programming bug in my version 1.0 copy of the game. It was worth it, because I couldn't bear to feed my people to those mouths!

It is frustrating though, that the Purifed Tear of Heaven wasn't presented to me as a weapon until only the tiniest sliver of green was left in Scuzzbucket Squid's lifeline. I would have finished him off in the next five minutes anyway after hours of monotonous battle.

Nice to be recognized, Pava...

I just finished the game... ending it with the best finale - killing the Octupus Alien Master just in 3 minutes coz:

a) I collected all the Gems (but even if you have only 439, the Guardiam Moon will appear)
b) Explored the world 90 percent.
c) Completed all 123 Quests (solving the light puzzle on Guardian Moon will also increase your population in every building.)
d) Prepare well my base: having several tower arrows, a couple of mud tower (to slow down the enemies), many cave of trials, many as you can shaman tents, and couple of witch doctor shant, and 3 Temples.
e) able to prepare all, including shattering the obelisks in order to remove the obelisks guarding the Octupus perimeter.
f) during the battle I able to put up also 2 towers near Octupus Lair.

Then in short time, defeated the Octupus , through the purified Tear of Heaven.

When you mean short you mean less than a hour.

439 gems = 100%? Hmmm. Dom, I think you must have version 1.02 or something. Even when I added more until I had 444 gems, I was still at 99%. Only when I added the extra gem to Volcano Island and replayed it from scratch, only then did the game finally acknowledge 100% of the gems and open Rainbow Road to the Guardian Moon.

Congratulations on such an unbelievably rapid defeat of Octo-monster! My Purified Tear of Heaven wasn't open to me until I had almost finished him off. Bravo to you!

And thanks to you, Cyber, for your many hours producing You Tube help. This game is so tough, the forums are getting too big to find anything. Your work should simplify things exponentially. Great job!

Thanks. A few of those videos took a few retries because I thought I could do better. What is so funny is I messed up on the Shade on Volcano Island, but I was able to recover during the video. I said I was showing what people did to get defeated by the Shade. Actually, I goofed. LOL.

Oh yeah, Pava. Most of us on this forum have version 1.02.

Pava,

Yeap, I have the latest version. After BFG announced it, I downloaded the new version... It minimized my problems, like certain bugs... It is better to have that one than to hold on the old version.

Hints & Strategy on how TO KILL TOTALLY the OCTOPUS!!!

I just finished my second go around and the Octopus replenished itself, too, it was weird! It was nearly done for then all of a sudden the life bar started moving in the wrong direction - ended up about half way full. Major argh! I did manage to kill it, but that was so strange. At least it only happened just the once.

I replayed the game to get the happy ending, which I got (Yay!) but my gem stats at the end were weird - 437/440. Not sure how that's possible when I got 100%/Guardian Moon. I had checked the .dat files before finishing because I was stuck at 98%, but I got the ones I missed and got access to GM, so should be at 440.

I was a bit bummed that I ended up at 122/123 quests and only 74% of the world discovered. No idea what I missed. But it sure was fun! Thanks everybody for all the help.
