New Year’s 2020 Event Fish & Expand Items

Like last year’s New Year’s event, it’s just a mini-event with rewards distributed once per day. All you have to do is long in to get the reward, and it seems likely even if you miss a day the event will go a bit longer than the 12 days it will take to get all rewards. Some items are fish, some are Expand items, I’ve noted which each is.

More Gachapon fish were also added. As always, the event is in a slow rollout so it might take a few days to appear. AbyssRium Pole is supposed to launch soon, look for a guide here soon.

Flero Games announces “Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Pole” a new Idle Game

Flero Games recently acquired Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium, and they’ve now announced a second game will be created: Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Pole. I had hoped the acquisition would be a good time to chop off the clumsy “Tap Tap Fish” from the title, but apparently not (and no, the game is not in any way related to SirTapTap).

There’s very little information about AbyssRium Pole yet, but iOS and Android app store pre-registrations are open. According to the iOS store page it’s expected very early December 2019, though this could be a flexible placeholder.

The press release is short on gameplay details and what is included makes it sound like AbyssRium Pole may play exactly like the first AbyssRium so far, just in a different location but with many of the same fish. The best look into the game is the brief 15 second teaser below.

YouTube player

Hopefully AbyssRium Pole will address many of the complaints the game has accrued since Cheetah Mobile bought it, including arduous events and many bugs.Flero games recently acquired AbyssRium from Cheetah Mobile, though Cheetah Mobile is still publishing the game in China. There still seems to be no new word on the Nintendo Switch version of the original AbyssRium, which Flero Games was originally supposed to develop. With Flero acquiring the game outright, perhaps there will be more news on that front soon.

As you might expect from the creator of the biggest AbyssRium guide, I’ll be checking out the game myself whenever it launches and make some guides to help players!

The Club Guide: Secrets in Crows Crows Crows’ TheClub.Zone

So The Club launched a month ago, and just got it’s “Season 2” update a few days ago! The game has a Dark Secret and some generally confusing aspects, so I thought I’d make a little guide for it! If you like free games like The Club, check out Free Points, my feature of free games worth your time!

Generally, The Club is as advertised; a “music listening/clubbing” MMO; you see other players with randomized names and avatars and can run around, listening to music either by the game’s creators, or submitted by players via The Club Sample Pack.  But there is also a Dark Secret in this game…

If you have reached the end of the Over 18 Door please contact me! If you have footage or images of what’s at the end I would absolutely love to have it. I haven’t managed to reach it myself nor has seemingly anyone else. OBS is a great recorder if you want to try and capture it yourself. Leave any info on the matter in the comments!

The Club Game Info

Developer: Crows Crows Crows
Twitter: @Crowsx3
Genre: Comedy/Club Simulator/MMO
Platform: Any web browser with a keyboard (not mobile)

How To Play The Club

First mosey on down to TheClub.Zone. Controls are basic WASD to move around, mouse to look, space to jump. T opens the Talk menu, C repeats dialog, F toggles fullscreen. The game can be played in any modern web browser on just about any hardware.

I recommend exploring a bit since there’s some fun and easy to find “secrets”, and some…not easy to find secrets we’ll detail more below!

Commentary

There’s a “developer’s commentary” presented in-character from The Club’s CEO, be sure to play it while you play the first time for fun. It’s just below the game window on the club zone website.

Club Level

Initially appearing to be pointless, Club Level increases once per minute in the game. Club Level actually has a purpose, it determines whether you can enter the door marked “No Under 18” or, for the purpose of this guide, the Over 18 Door.

See the Bugs section below for an extremely useful exploit regarding club level.

Change Characters

Go into the bathroom (hang a right after the staircase to the club floor) to find a mirror, and a mystery tunnel. Go into the animated mystery tunnel of sparkles and eventually you’ll fall through the floor in front of the mirror again, and your player name and avatar will be different. Your level and everything else in the game is unaffected. You can repeat this as much as you like.

Chat

Press T to open the Talking menu, you can only use pre-selected phrases that are more for humor than communication, but that’s the game isn’t it? Press C outside of the talking menu to repeat/spam the last selected message as much as you want.

Updates

The game has “seasons”, adding character names, avatars, more music of course, more text lines etc. Sign up for the crowscrowscrows newsletter to be notified of updates, or just to see their famously surreal newsletters.

Ghosts vs Skeletons!

The Halloween update changed the posters and everything, added ghosts and skeletons, and added two new areas. For posterity, here’s a livestream from when it was new to see the fun:

Let's Play The Club (2) | Halloween update! Skeletons vs Ghosts!

You become a ghost/skeleton by dying; either in the +18 room, or via the new chute right next to the starting hallway to your left. Just fall in the hole to die and become a ghost or skellie. Note that using the mirror to change your appearance will turn you “human” again and remove your undead powers; the only way to see the different avatars/names for skels/ghosts is to die and retry.

Being a ghost/skeleton also changes your dialog options; try them out! They also change gameplay to make the +18 door a bit easier (but no less buggy or frustrating). If you die in +18 as undead, you still die and become a different ghost/skeleton and lose your levels.

Ghosts can jump a bit higher and float slowly down. They can also go through the Ghosts Only door to the right of the stage, and through the Ghost Wall on the second floor also to the right.

Skeletons jump much higher and can reach the bone zone Skeleton Room at the very top of the club from the catwalk.

Secrets In The Club

Abandon all hope ye who enter here; spoilers ahead!

Can Names

Not much of a secret, but be sure to read all the text in the game, especially the posters and pop can labels. Some are pretty funny.

Big Red Button

Going up the right staircase, there’s a catwalk path leading to a button. Tantalizingly, it makes a pressing sound when clicked with the mouse. Less tantalizing, I don’t know what it does, if anything. Leave a comment if you’ve found anything!

Over 18 Door

To camera left of the throne in The Club, there’s a door marked with a “No Entry Under 18”, which we’ll call the Over 18 Door. The door seems impassible, but it becomes permeable the moment you hit Club Level 18!

Beyond the door lies a dreadful platforming challenge. You lose your club level if you fall off the path, meaning you can only try every 18 minutes (unless you achieve the exploit listed below in the bugs section!).

First you have to jump along the clouds, avoiding the black ones; those kill you. Ignore the path to the left of the start of the cloud trail; there’s just an NPC that tells you to avoid the black ones. I already did that.

Watch out for moving clouds; you will NOT automatically move with the cloud, and have to walk constantly to keep your position! The jumping here is very tricky, and almost all players are sure to give up. Don’t feel bad, it’s totally unfair.

over 18 door crows crows crows the club

If you get to the end of the first set of clouds, you’ll get a fun little quiz that would make you ragequit if you weren’t reading this guide. Or maybe you already did. Anyway, I have the answer!

The answer for the current riddle is there’s 112 tiles in the bathroom, or the leftmost cloud. The riddle appears to change each season, so it may be different in the future. Next hop up some simple spires and you’re greeted with a swinging ball bridge.

I haven’t gotten past the swinging balls yet, but the best hint I can tell you is that there appears to be no safe space between them. Once you see and opening in the swings and start, just keep running.

There’s several more jumping puzzles past this unfortunately. Again, if you have gotten past this segment, please leave a comment, email me, or tweet at me! I’d love video or even photo evidence of what’s beyond (and your skills/luck!).

Bugs

Infinite Tries At Over 18 Door

We’re having trouble reproducing this! If you have any info on this bug let us know!

The Over 18 door is incredibly unfair, but this bug at least removes the 18 minute wait between attempts! It’s an exploit, sure, and it might be patched at any time, but in the meantime, this is the most sane way to attempt the Over 18 Door. Don’t worry; it’s still very insane. Just less!

If you leave the game open long enough, as I did when I left it open overnight on accident, the game will glitch out and fail to remove your Club Level when you die. This also prevents all the multiplayer features and such from working but does not, as far as we’ve seen, affect the Over 18 Door.

For me the game stuck at Club Level 372. I’m not sure if it always glitches out like this at that level or not. It’s possible it’s just a long amount of time, or a network disconnection instead.

Be warned I don’t know if this always works, but I have at least one person attempting it right now. Leave info in the comments if you find anything new that does/doesn’t work with this bug!

Jumping Bug

Infuriatingly, sometimes when you jump you’ll hop half a centimeter instead of a proper jump. This bug alone makes the Over 18 Door path nearly impossible. Nothing so far has been able to fix it. Hopefully Crows Crows Crows fix it.

Clipping Bugs

Not so much bugs as oversights, various parts of The Club aren’t programmed to have collision, so if you jump into certain spots, you “phase” into the wall. More fun than anything, poke around in places you feel the devs didn’t want you to go, and you might go inside a wall! A fun place for this is the red button at the top of the club.

Video Playthrough

I played the game on my Twitch, here’s the archive!

Pokemon Masters Game Info

Title: Pokemon Masters
Platform: Android, iOS 
Language: English, Japanese
Release date: 2019-08-28
Developer: DeNA Co. Ltd.
Publisher: Pokemon Company
Price: F2P with microtransactions and gachapon
File Size: 1.33 GB fully installed
Genre: 3v3 Gachapon real-time RPG

Events

Rock Type Training

Trash

Guaranteed 5 Star Scout

This is bait, IMO. It’s paid gem only, and for the 3000 paid gems to get 10 units + 1 5 star, you could have pulled 30 free daily sync pairs instead (expected value 2.1 5 star units).

Launch Celebration Special Rally

Dates: 2019-08-29 through 2019-10-16

A basic event, you simply need to win 5 Co-Op battles and complete Story Mode to earn rewards. Completing all missions gets you 10 Big Pearls. Should be very easy to complete, if minimally rewarding.

There are no Event stages in Explore nor Event Exchanges in the shop.

Pokemon Masters FAQ

Where Are Gym Leader Notes?

To get your first Gym Leader Notes, fight Hard mode of any Co-Op story mode stage, after Chapter 11. Single player will not work.

Very Hard Supercourses drop them too, but they’re vastly harder and ideally require level 90+ pokemon. Supercourses are the best way to get them after you have 1-3 pokemon Max Level Capped.

How Do I Evolve (Pokemon)?

If you’re asking, odds are you can’t. The great majority of Sync Pairs in Pokemon Masters simply do not evolve. A rare few do, including free characters Rosa and Barry, and other units in the Gachapon noted with an icon. Get your pokemon above level 35 (stage 1) or 50 (stage 2) to see if it evolves. If no Sync Story unlocks for evolution, that pokemon does not evolve, ever.

Note that Evolution Stones are very rare and consider not evolving pokemon you may never use, contrary as that may be to Pokemon instincts. Since Launch they increased the cost of evolving, making it extremely prohibitive.

Where are Red and Blue?

Not in the game yet. Blue will have a Gachapon banner starting september 4th. Red is currently MIA but will surely be added in the future, as well most famous trainers. These games always release favorites slowly to keep people interested.

How Do I Get Star Power Ups?

Star Power Ups are the items that raise a character from 3* to 5* etc. But they’re effectively not in the game at least for now. You can only get them by pulling 6+ of the same unit from the gachapon, a feat that would cost several hundred dollars bare minimum, probably over $1000 total.

Hopefully they’ll be event items eventually, they effectively do not exist at present.

How do I complete “Getting Stronger With Gear”?

Beat Chapter 18 Co-Op hard mode to unlock the gear feature, and the Very Hard stages of Co-Op.

Why Am I so Weak!

If you’re neglecting Training Courses you’re going to be extremely underleveled and behind on Move/Level Cap items. They’re your ticket to grinding. If you haven’t completed the story yet, there’s also probably multiple features you haven’t unlocked yet.

Muse Dash Guide: Anime Rhythm Game for Switch, PC & Mobile All Costumes Unlocks

Muse Dash just launched on Nintendo Switch and Steam! It’s a surprisingly great Rhythm game (that even I can enjoy!) so I thought I’d share some useful information about the game in a guide! As always, feel free to comment below to add any tips, ask any questions, or just share what you think of the game!

Note of course this is a rhythm game and doing well mostly depends on your own skill. I can’t really give hands-on rhythm tutorials, so this focuses mostly on the objective informational side of the game.

I’m streaming Muse Dash tonight!

https://www.twitch.tv/sirtaptap

Muse Dash Game Info

Title: Muse Dash
Platform: iOS, Android, PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch
Language: Japanese/English
Release date: 2018-06-15 (Mobile), 2019-06-20 (PC/console)
Developer: Pero Pero Games
Price: $1 (iOS), $1.50 (Android) $3 (Steam), $30 (Nintendo Switch, all DLC included)
Season Pass DLC price: $30  (Steam), $21 (mobile)
File Size: ~600MB
Genre: Music/Rhythm Game

Muse Dash Version Differences

The versions of Muse Dash are slightly different, most notably the Mobile versions are a bit different from the PC and Switch versions.

  • Mobile versions have an option to manually trigger Fever. Oddly, the Switch version lacks this for now.
  • Switch version has separate Leaderboards
  • DLC varies by platform, same content, different distributions:
    • The Nintendo Switch version has no DLC and is sold as a single item
    • The PC Version is sold as a cheap base game with a single DLC unit of the current mobile DLC
    • The mobile version sells DLC piecemeal
  • Title Screen is different on Mobile and PC/Switch with unique art for each
  • Mobile versions include Cloud Save with Facebook, Google Play/iCloud, and XD account
    • The Steam version can import your score/progress from mobile; the Switch version cannot.
  • Mobile versions show X/100 progress on the level up bar, console versions only show a bar. XP per level is still the same.
DLC

The Switch version does not have DLC, all tracks are included in the base price.

The Steam version has a single DLC, which will include all future tracks in the single purchase price.

The Mobile version has piecemeal DLC or you can buy the same Season Pass as Steam, which gives all future packs for free.

I recommend getting the season pass if you like the game, it’s the best deal since you get future stuff free.

Which Version Is Best?

If you want to play on multiple platforms, Steam + Mobile is the best combo. Mobile is the native platform and lets you manually control Fever. If you already have it on Mobile and want to keep your progress but play with a controller, get Steam as Switch doesn’t have account import.

However the Switch version is the simplest, most complete way to get the game at once and offers nice control options, while still being portable and allowing touch and TV play. The only major downsides are the lack of manual fever (patch please!) and the lack of account connection. Switch version will get free DLC updates.
