Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Striped Marlin Guide

More than any other fish the Striped Marlin in Tap Tap Fish: Abyssrium has driven fans (and by extension, me) insane. So I decided hey, just make a single, extremely direct post to gather all the information into one place.

The biggest thing to remember about the Striped Marlin is that it is simply extremely rare and has a very long time between possible chances. There really aren’t many relevant tricks and there’s no secret to it. This page mostly serves to debunk various myths and reassure the correct method, but I have every single bit of relevant info I’ve found no matter how small.

Scouring dozens of comments and posts, this is what I’ve come up with. If you have a tip to share or a rumor to debunk please feel free to comment below, email me, or contact me however you feel most comfortable.

Potion Maker Guide

Last updated on May 22nd, 2017 at 11:34 am

Potion Maker is a hard game to describe, something like a very simple Item Shop management game mixed with a Clicker game but without the Idle aspect. Potion Maker is available for iOS and Android. Here you’ll find info on how to make the most of what Potion Maker gives you, unlock the unlockables, and perform the best you can in the time-limited Events.

Work in Progress.

2017-05-15: Pushcat Runaway event!

Events

Potion Maker has Events that happen about twice a month and have special Requests, as well as unique conditions to earn up to two special outfits for one of the characters.

Generally events cycle so there’s one event for Pio outfits then one for Tia outfits. The Event Requests can be completed with either character and should be considered a very high priority as they unlock extremely good rewards, such as tons of Likeability and event-exclusive fairies. Try to take on every request you possibly can.

Current Event – Pushcat Runaway!

Birdstopia – Idle Bird Clicker Guide

Last updated on May 11th, 2017 at 09:44 am

Birdstopia – Idle Bird Clicker, as they call it, is a clone of TapTap Fish/AbyssRium (to a rather severe extent). It’s a mobile clicking game focused on ornithology (that’s the study of birds, or the technical term; birbs) with a nice flat design style. It’s out now for iOS and Android.

Since I did a guide for AbyssRium and this game copied about 70% of it’s gameplay directly from Abyssrium I thought I’d make a guide for it in case AbyssRium fans take a liking to it.

As a mini review it certainly won’t blow you away as it’s clone-status is pretty visible, but it’s a nice change of pace if your idle game of choice has slowed down and you want that feeling of a fresh game with reasonable progress again. The bird theme is certainly a plus.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Series Release Date Calendar

Last updated on May 10th, 2017 at 09:39 am

Have you ever hoped someone composed a nice table of all Hyperdimension Neptunia games and their release dates across all platforms and regions? I certainly hope so, because you’ve found exactly that and will have to deal with it either way.

Note: The United States (US) and Japanese (JP) release dates will be used as generic “Western” and “Eastern” dates respectively, their exact release in all sub-regions like Asia, EU, AU may vary by a few days. PC releases are listed as World Wide (WW) even though technically they have different (or no) release date in Japanese, oddly enough.

This guide is for release dates only, try this post if you want help understanding the Neptunia Timeline/Canon, and if you want help understanding what kind of game each is/which you should buy for what reason, I have a guide for that coming up soon.

Main Title Release Dates

The Platform column links to where to buy that game for that platform.

One Shot Solstice Chapter/New True Ending Guide

Last updated on April 16th, 2017 at 09:06 am

As of March 26th 2017, OneShot was updated with a new bonus chapter! It’s generally called the “solstice” update. Here’s the info you need to start exploring it.

You’ll have to beat the game normally at least once to get this ending (don’t worry, it doesn’t matter how the game ends, but you do have to get an ending).

I don’t have a guide for the first playthrough, but I have a full playthrough on Youtube including both endings, a third playthrough, and Solstice.

I’ll keep spoilers to an absolute minimum and will tag them as so, but I’ll assume you’ve beaten the game at least once to be attempting this.

Horizon Zero Dawn Trophy Guide

Last updated on April 4th, 2017 at 04:44 pm

This was going to be a more complete guide for Horizon Zero Dawn, but for now I stopped with Trophies. I was planning on adding animal locations and robot strategies soon, though I haven’t decided on making separate small guides or a single large one with all the info shoved in one. If there’s specific information you’d like to see added (or if you have anything to contribute), feel free to leave a comment or contact me.

Important to note: nothing trophy-wise is missable whatsoever in Horizon Zero Dawn; it’s one of my favorite design decisions in the game. Horizion is a very low-stress game.

You can complete the game any way you like then go back and get all trophies, no matter how you happen to play. There are a few choices that do matter story-wise and a couple missable quests with Nil, but none of them count toward trophies.

If you want to avoid spoilers, you can just totally ignore this section and come back after beating the game or when you’re stuck.

A Normal Lost Phone Guide

Last updated on April 4th, 2017 at 04:40 pm

A Normal Lost Phone is a short narrative game by Accidental Queens. I found online guides lacking, so I put together a quick, superior one for others.

Passwords

Most progression gates in the game require finding out a password. I give a vague hint and a spoiler-block with the exact solution for each. Try to figure out as much as you can on your own, it makes it more fun and reveals the story as it was intended.
