Grow RPG Σ (Sigma) Solution Guide & Walkthrough

Grow RPG Sigma is/was an Android port of EyezMaze’s delightful Grow RPG with added achievements, unlockable ‘figures’, and a whole new Sigma mode!

Check out my other Grow guides.

Grow Sigma Ending Solutions

Like all Grow games, click the items to “use” them, the order in which they’re used affects the outcome. A specific order is required to “win” or see the endings.

To keep things fun, spoilers are staggered, so you can see which item to use first/last to help use process of elimination to figure things out, rather than simply looking at the whole list and spoiling it all in one go. If you know the first item, there’s much less possible mistakes to make.

Normal Ending

Grow games usually have at least one secret ending. As far as I can tell, Grow RPG Sigma Mode only has one sending. If there’s a secret, let me know in the comments so I can add it!

Item 1
Cloud
Item 2
Egg
Item 3
Potion
Item 4
Iceberg
Item 5
Fire

Download Grow RPG Sigma

Grow RPG Sigma was sadly removed from Android stores, but you can still download and play the APK File to play it. I’ve played the one from APK Pure myself, so it should be safe.

You can play it on PC with Nox Player (or any other Android emulator of your choice). Or naturally, on almost any Android phone.

Google Play Achievements

Here’s a guide with the Android achievements information for now: https://www.exophase.com/game/grow-rpg-%CF%83-android/achievements/

100% Orange Juice Co op Roles Guide

100% Orange Juice’s Co Op mode is criminally underrated and a great addition to this Steam board game. I’ll work more on expanding this guide later if you all find it interesting, but for now I’ve focused on who to use for which role.

A note, since you determine your cards and role, any character can fill any role. There’s just some characters that have notable advantages, and I’ve listed my personal favorites for all roles here. Let me know in the comments who your favorites to use are!

What Is 100% Orange Juice Co Op?

As a quick run-down, Co Op turns the normally free-for-all verus game of 100% Orange Juice into a more strategic and cooperative game where all 4 players (ideally) decide on which roles each player will play, which characters, and which cards they’ll bring.

Since everyone is working together instead of against each other, certain characters are more or less effective, and certain cards play differently in co op. Cards that serve only to harm other players for example are either removed or edited so that they impact the boss instead. For a list of card changes, see the Wiki, another great resource.

If that sounds too easy or boring, keep in mind all 4 players are working against a super overpowered boss with 50+ HP and an increasingly powerful set of special Boss Hyper Cards, some of which can instantly KO one or more players. If all players are KO’d at the same time, the players lose the round and the boss wins.

It completely changes the game and I can’t recommend 100% Orange Juice Co-Op enough. Join us in our Discord Server if you want to play with us, we play it very often and have a role you can ping to look for games.

Do note co op works much better with human players. Try online and remove your password before starting the game, even a rando is better than a CPU (they tend to waste your stars and do very little). I’ve encountered much less rude players playing co op online than VS mode, so don’t be shy to dip your toes in the pool. Or, again, join our discord!

Roles

Roles are half of what makes Co Op interesting: each player can pick one of 5 roles which have specific stat boosts (gaining extra stats at Norma level 2, 3, and/or 4), a special Hyper Card you can replace your character’s hyper with, and a Cooldown skill that helps you or your team out.

Proper use of roles is key to victory in Co Op, and you should coordinate your roles with your team before starting a round to ensure you have the right balance of attack and defense.

Here’s quick rundown of the roles, a much more thorough breakdown is in each roles section below:

  • Attacker
    • Deal extra damage at the expense of gaining 1 REC, extending revive times. Always gets first turn attack against the boss.
  • Guardian
    • High defense stat and shield allies from damage. The only way to reduce incoming damage to 0 instead of 1.
  • Support
    • Revive allies and heal them by walking past them on the board, +1 Evade and +2 move through stat boosts.
  • Avenger
    • Extra HP and damage taken inside a battle is added to your attack for that battle. Revive instantly when certain powers are used to attack after a KO and avoid losing the match.
  • Dealer
    • Deal extra cards and pass them to other players, useful for spamming hypers or filling other players’ hands. Can also ignore a tile’s effect turning it into a Draw tile.

Are YouTube Shorts Worth Making? My Success With Shorts

YouTube Shorts were recently released publicly though still technically in Beta. The short-form looping videos are a very clear answer to TikTok (and the former Vine), providing very short videos of a minute or less to a vertical-only viewing experience designed just for Mobile, surfaced in a compact “watch a bunch at once” style experience.

If you haven’t messed with Shorts yet, the YouTube help article describes the technical aspects pretty well. I’ll focus more on how to use them and my experience with them and if they’re worth it. Note it’s very early stages so don’t draw too many conclusions, I’m still experimenting myself!

Have you started using YouTube Shorts? Share any tips or experiences in the comments below?

The YouTube Shorts Camera App

The Shorts Camera App seems to be the most direct answer to TikTok, including many features specifically for Shorts creation. However, it is only being tested in India for now, and users outside India will have to wait for the app to roll out worldwide.

YouTube Shorts Camera explanation

The features sound pretty good and will help notice users make Shorts without much/any editing work. The Shorts Camera is NOT required to upload shorts however, so you can upload them now even if you don’t have the app/live outside India.

Note that while the Shorts “experience” is only on Mobile, Shorts are still also a “normal” upload video that will appear like any other video to Desktop users. You get to have your cake and eat it too.

How To Make Your YouTube Video a Short

Even without the app, you can simply upload a vertically oriented (9:16 aspect ratio usually) video 60 seconds or less in length and include #Shorts in the description or title and the system will recognize it as a Short (though this doesn’t guarantee it will be featured as one).

Shorts are somewhat limited: Users can watch the Short, Comment, Like, Share, Subscribe, visit your channel or with a little effort, read the description. Many YouTube features like Chapters and even captions (!!) are currently unsupported, since when watching a Short from the Shorts slider, you get a different fullscreen interface instead of the usual watch page. No ads are shown in the Shorts experience, so a Shorts feature probably won’t raise your income directly—but subs are money too.

The lack of captions is particularly frustrating for accessibility reasons, plus many of us watching on phone leave our devices muted anyway. If your video completely depends on captions, I would bake them in for now. You also cannot tell what frame will be used as the “thumbnail” for Shorts—YouTube will use a frame from the video, not your normal thumbnail.

Expect inconsistency, new features for shorts etc, as the rollout is still technically a beta, so anything could change (or they could quietly nuke the project in a year as Google often does).

Where Do Users See Shorts?

PokeTwo Guide & Commands List | Pokemon Discord Bot

I do not own PokeTwo and my Discord Server is a CHAT SERVER not a PokeTwo spamfest! PokeTwo is a Discord Pokemon game bot designed to be just like the original Pokecord (RIP). It’s the closest to Pokecord I’ve found so far, while MewBot and PokeMeow (which I also have guides for) are more their own thing. If you know how to play Pokecord you’re pretty much already good to go with PokeTwo, but I’ll note everything here for new or confused players!

This is a guide written by Sir TapTap. Donations to Poketwo do not go to me, so if my guides help, consider supporting my Patreon or become a paid member of my YouTube channel

How To Play PokeTwo

How Pokemon Spawn in PokeTwo

Please actually read this section as a massive amount of people seem to misunderstand the fundamental concept of this bot!

If you played Pokecord, you’re basically up to speed already. In PokeTwo, every time someone posts a regular chat message there is a chance of a Pokemon spawning in response. This means no chatting, no pokemon, ever! There are also anti-spam features that limit how often one person can spawn a pokemon: one person spamming over and over still won’t spawn Pokemon. The best way to spawn pokemon is (shock and horror) a lot of people having a real conversation and talking back and forth! Yes, that’s what PokeCord was originally designed to encourage!

Only real, generally back-and-forth chatting generates Pokemon! Spamming the chat with repeated lines from one person will not reliably generate pokemon, nor is there a ;spawn command or anything of the sort! Most people forget, but Pokecord was designed to encourage chatting on a Discord server. If you’re sitting silently waiting for Pokemon you are playing Pokecord clones wrong. Say hi in a general chat channel and make a dialog to get Pokemon spawning.

The one exception is if you buy incense, which spawns a pokemon every 20 seconds for an hour.

If you just want to force Pokemon to appear, you want to play PokeMeow or Myuu instead. There is to my knowledge no bot that just constantly spawns pokemon with 0 input like some people seem to want. Also note PokeTwo’s spawn rate seems to have been massively nerfed.

YouTube Community Posts Guide – Boost Engagement on YouTube

YouTube Community Posts aren’t a new feature, but I’ve noticed a lot more creators start to use them lately so I thought I’d write up a quick How-To. Community Posts are a great way to keep your audience engaged (and knowing you’re alive) even when you don’t have a new video to post yet!

We’ll run down the choices of posts and how to use them. Note to unlock the Community tab, you must have 1,000 subscribers. It effectively replaces the old “Discussions” tab with better features. If this How To helps, check out my other articles on YouTube!

Where Do YouTube Community Posts Appear?

youtube community posts in home feed

Posts appear in your Community tab on your Channel Page, but most importantly on YouTube Mobile, Posts appear intermixed with the subscriptions/recommendations feed on the front page! Yes, front page billing, though for now it seems to just be on mobile.

Note that Community Posts for recently watched channels can show up even if you don’t subscribe to the channel, so some non-subscribers may see a popular post of yours as well. You’re not guaranteed a slot by The Algorithm of course, which is why it pays to sprinkle your posts a couple times a week instead of just one.

Using YouTube Community Posts

The simplest Community Post is just raw text, which is great to give a heads-up to your followers about upcoming videos, ask questions, or just give a quick status update.

Note that only the first 4 lines of text on your post will show up before a Show More block, so be terse, punchy, or at least lead with a banger.

YouTube Video Posts

The most obvious kind of post, these let you share a video (yours or someone else’s) directly to your audience along with some text. This is a great way to promote quality, older videos that The Algorithm hasn’t graced lately.

You can announce scheduled Livestreams as well

As I note below, Video Posts appear to get circulated less than other post types—or at least, they seem to get a lot less engagement in my experience.
