|Chapter 3: The Suspicious Peddler|
The pig ship has landed.
Alright monkey! Listen up! If you don't do your job... then this girlie monkey is as good as dead.
The monkey gets zapped whenever he disobeys his commands... He makes the monkey, dance, laugh, and backflip... and when the monkey starts crying...
Hey, you stupid monkey! You only get to cry when I tell you to!
No... stop this.
You wound up being taken with Fassad.
I'm playing as the monkey right now... I'm in control, well not really... If I go anywhere besides where Fassad wants me to go I get zapped.
The monkey, Salsa, has monkey skills...
- Apologize to an enemy to stop it in its tracks.
- Perform various tricks to stop an enemy somwhat.
- Perform various dances for different results.
- Counter an enemy with its own attack.
Talked to a frog in a barrel... defeated a dung beetle and picked up a "Dung" item...
Gave him sum dung and he gave me some experience points.
You can easily get Salsa leveled up a lot here, just by guarding and letting Fassad kill everything. Some enemies often give you healing items for killing them too.
Found a luxury banana... but Fassad eats it. Oh... maybe it's better to stay away from collecting useful items if the enemy is likely to take the important ones.
The frog... in exchange for saving him, he lets Salsa save.
... Frogs in the desert? It's not as crazy as you might think.
After that, I went around collecting more dung to prepare for the Cactus Dog fight.
When an enemy confuses Salsa, Fassad immediately zaps him back to obedience... Sometimes Fassad doesn't attack during battle. I think if Salsa doesn't attack once in a while, then Fassad will stop attacking too.
Fassad put his finger on the punisher button.
This part of the game is really neat actually... like I wouldn't be staying here grinding for so long if I didn't think it'd be more fun then just charging ahead as soon as possible... I like how Fassad is just barely not strong enough to defeat most of these enemies on his own in one turn, but with the help of level 8 Salsa, every single enemy battle can be won on the first turn. Salsa's growth in this short time period seem very noticeable... Now I'm at the point where I longer need to guard against these desert enemies.
Hmm... the water near that Wan Sum Dung guy has gotten all dungy now... you can still drink it...
Oh wow... I just realized dancing is a VERY good tactic... it just does a random buff/enemy debuff each turn. There, that Cactus Dog was easy with Salsa only at level 8
Oh man this creepy music section...
lol nah that's not what happens, that'd be cool though.
Wow this is creepy... it's like these enemies are already infiltrating the world in various ways that you had no idea about. This kinda reminds me of EarthBound when Giygas's forces infiltrated Winters and Threed via the cave below Stonehenge, except this time you get to see some of it from the enemy's perspective.
This tall man never leaves this spot... and I've never seen him talk with anyone, either.
I'm not sure why, but this stuff is incredible... Just having lots of it can get you anything you want!
Fassad runs into Duster...
Butch to Duster:
What? You don't know what money is? ...Actually, I'm not really all that sure, either. After all, we've never had it in Tazmily Before.
He gave it to me in exchange for some pigs. Yeah, he really took a liking to those pigs...
Yeah, probably to make weird hybrid monsters out of.
Oh damn wait... is it showing me... yeah it's the scene from Chapter 2 when Duster sees Butch hide the money... wow... So this whole chapter 3 is actually chapter 2 from the monkey's perspective.
Fassad tells Salsa to go deliver these people their Happy Boxes... With a 23 minute life threatening time limit... Now he's zapping the monkey even for obeying... damn.
Is my Happy Box ready yet? I'm really looking forward to it.
Oh wow... that tunnel where the pig tank dug through on the way to Osohe castle in chapter 2... That's where Fassad and Salsa came from just now... That path to the desert is now gated off. Only the secret graveyard path connects the desert to Tazmily.
I explored all of the town and found the 4 characters before going to the cemetery to find out I was supposed to grab each Happy Box from there first to deliver them... and also Mapson marks their locations on the map for you.
Abbey canceled her order when she saw Abbot getting one. I'm done I guess...
We can't let criminals run amuck in Tazmily! We must all seek happiness... or this village will be in grave danger!
This scene is awesome... Lucas comes and saves Wess and the others with the baby Drago and his parent.. Wess tells him about what happened with Duster...
