|Went through the first 3 levels (Foggy Lake, Silent Forest, Castle Wall) with Reinhardt very easily without using any healing items. I did die a few times at the first boss and the castle wall boss though, and had to regain my powerups...|
The Villa is a bit different with Reinhardt/Carrie... you meet Rosa in the Rose Garden, a vampire who hasn't started attacking humans yet... then you meet a vampire hunter in the house and he gives you the key to the archives, and in the archives you get the key to the garden... if you explore that first hedge maze section before meeting the blue haired kid, you can see the frankenstein monster in a corner of the maze, fixing his chainsaw.. if you attack him he'll start chasing you early.
Then comes the annoying part... you meet Malus, the blue haired kid, in the hedge maze, and at that point the two dog statues at the entrance come alive and start attacking you, and the frankenstein monster starts constantly chasing you... all of these enemies are invincible and can only be stunned. The dogs don't hurt you, but they can stop you from moving long enough for the chainsaw monster to hit you and he takes out a LOT of damage. While following Malus to the exit, you have to keep turning back every few seconds to attack these enemies or else they'll take a lot out of you and waste a lot of chickens... also Malus is very fast and is hard to keep up with.
I died at the first attempt. You don't even gain access to the 2nd part of the hedge maze until after you talk to Malus, so there's no way to just explore that ahead of time while it's safe and memorize where to go. I managed to make it through the 2nd try though with only using a few chickens.
I think I'm gonna try not buying anything from Renon this time... instead I'll take my time collecting every item and make it so I get the extra boss that appears when you take too long.
From where you got Malus to the exit, you can get back into the house from the door that was locked on the other side, and you find the copper key there and can now just go back to the first hedge maze entrance and get to that door that needed a copper key, which is very easy to find... the invincible monsters are still roaming the hedge maze so you can't really do a full item sweep of the 2nd maze area, and I don't think there's anything to find there anyway besides the chicken inside that gated garden.
and yeah, the Tunnel level... it's the same spider/bat infested tunnel that I had to go through with Henry. I still remember where to go pretty much... I managed to fully explore this area without a guide pretty easily... it loops around a lot. That spider boss is actually super easy... after that I met Rosa again.. she tries to kill herself by stepping into the beam of sunlight coming down from the tunnel ceiling.. Reinhardt stops her, then she says he'll regret refusing to kill a vampire just because she looks like a girl...
