Mega Miracle Force (メガミラ) Import Guide | A Real Neptunia Crossover Mobile Game!

Mega Miracle Force (メガミラ) just released in Japan! Just like Makai Wars prior (and several Neptunia games) I figured I’d do a little import guide to help other players get going! This guide is still very much work in progress so expect big updates.

Feel free to contribute any information that’s missing or ask questions in the comments, or join our Discord to discuss Mega Miracle Force, Neptunia series, or other games in general!

Mega Miracle Force is a Compile Heart universe crossover game, with Hyperdimension Neptunia characters as well as characters and enemies from many of Compile Heart’s other games. It plays much like Makai Wars as a gachapon based mini-SRPG with auto-battle and various character-enhancing systems. In a very Compile Heart quirk, you equip CG images from the various games as “equipment”.

Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium: Valentine’s Day 2019 Event Guide

This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Valentine’s Day Event (2019) information. See the main guide for other events and general game information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!

If my guides help remember you can support me on Patreon, YouTube, or chat about games in my Discord Server!

You can see my archived stream of the event here:

Valentine’s Day 2019 Event Stats

Start date: 2019-01-29
End Date: 2019-02-28 (estimated)

Costs: (data)

Total Cost: 625,500 roses!!!!
Fusion Materials: 3050 Seaweed, 640 clams, 275 Urchins
Time: over 30 days worth of max level crab casts or 626 ad watches, plus 82 hours of manual Urchin collection

Making this tie for one of the most expensive ever, and everyone starts from scratch

How It Works

Estimated Difficulty: Extremely high. Over 600,000 candy required.

Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.

  • Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
  • It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
    • Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
  • 17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
    • 2017 fish are back too.
    • 2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
  • New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days

Valentine’s Day Event Roadmap

First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.

With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.

With the Dye  and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).

The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.

To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.

Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.

Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.

With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.

Valentine’s 2018 Fish

None of the corals or fish are available, except the Pygmy Whales. They’re in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly.

  • A Pair of Pygmy Right Whales
    • 2 Wedding Town Whales

Valentine’s 2017 Fish

    • Tap 50 roses
  • Get Candies
    • Own 1 of each Candy fish
      • Candy Nautilus
      • Candy Goldfish
      • Candy Turtle
    • Yes that is the requirement, there are no candies to get, I don’t know why people keep asking this. Just do what is said on the requirements in the guide and totally ignore the ingame UI text, it is terrible and misleading.
  • Who is the best couple
    • After this quest unlocks, make one of each “couple” fish
      • Couple Lobsters
      • Couple Seahorses
      • Couple Gourami
  • Thanks for the goddess of love

La-Mulana 2 Guide: Outfit Locations, Walkthrough, and Secrets

La-Mulana 2’s PC release snuck up on…just about everyone, and so I haven’t had time to make a fully detailed guide like my old Axiom Verge guide, but I thought I’d get started since I couldn’t find much info and I got really, REALLY stuck. WIP as I complete the game myself and flesh it all out, check back for updates!

Update: The wiki’s fairly complete and I’ve been a lot less able to play the game than I’d hoped, so for now I’m shelving this

As a Metroidvania, La-Mulana 2 can be quite confusing, so as always in addition to the content of the guide, feel free to pop in my Discord Server or post in the comments below to ask questions or share info!

Here there be spoilers. The game’s huge and writing a spoiler-free walkthrough is pretty much beyond my time-allotment for now. Read carefully and I suggest only reading when you’re stuck. 

Game Info

Title: La-Mulana 2 
Platform: PC
Developer: NIGORO
Publisher: AGM Playism
Languages: Japanese, English, Simplified Chinese
Release date: 2018-07-30
Length: Long (Likely >40 hours)
Genre: Metroidvania

Updates

2018-08-12: Majorly expanded the item & item location list, starting to work on a map though it’s too ugly to share just yet; tomorrow probably! Added some boss info to Shrine of Frost Giants. My La-Mulana 2 streams have continued too if you want to see the footage!

2018-08-05: Started a video walkthrough. Added Divine Fortress. Added and fleshed out Items section. Greatly expanded the walkthrough, though there’s still much, much more to come. Added pictures of all the wall murals I’ve found, since I’m sure they’re a puzzle.

2018-08-04: Added info on the PS4 controller bug, and a workaround. Expanded the shops in the walkthrough. Finished La Mulana Ruins walkthrough.

2018-08-03: Published La-Mulana 2 guide

La-Mulana 2 Quickstart Tips & Tricks

Save often. If you beat a boss, get a new item, or do almost anything, save. La-Mulana 2 will have (almost) no mercy. Though it will save continue points automatically at save points you fast travel to, but these won’t persis forever. So save.

You can fast-travel at any time, to any unlocked place. Sometimes this is the only way to escape a certain death, and may even solve some puzzles.

Similarly, you can heal by fast traveling to Village of Departure at any time and resting in the hotsprings. Easily La-Mulana 2’s greatest mercy. Otherwise the only way to heal is to find a healing fairy (later on), or “level up” with experience.

The blue meter below your HP is your “experience”. When you get a “level” your health is refilled fully, but nothing else happens. There is no track of your “levels”, it’s really just a health restore method.

La-Mulana 2 is brutal. Expect traps at every corner, expect death, try not to get too frustrated. It can be healthy to take breaks and revisit areas later. With a fresh mind you might find something you missed.

Read (Y button on Xbox controller) every save point pedestal before leaving; this registers them in the Holy Grail’s fast travel menu.

Most bosses you can just leave the room from. Sometimes this is the intended way to handle them; if a boss seems impossible, you’re probably just not supposed to fight it yet. Explore elsewhere.

Some items must be equipped to use (or unequipped to turn off). Pay extra attention to your “apps” menu, as you can only hold so many apps. Create different sets for exploring/scanning if you run out of space.

There are sequence breaks (as more or less always in a Metroidvania), but they make La-Mulana 2 drastically harder until you’re back on track. Avoid them until a second playthrough IMO.

Surprise Fish, surprisingly, are not abundant from what I’ve played. Other surprises, however, are common. Huzzah!

Grow Comeback Guide & Walkthrough

Grow  Comeback is the latest Grow game in the series by Eyezmaze, and since I didn’t find much info online when I first played it I made a tiny little guide for it! Grow Comeback is a double entendre; the game is about a literal comeback in-universe, but it’s also announcing the comeback of the Grow series via a crowdfunding campaign by On.

Play the game here on the official site; it takes a minute to load, then scroll down a bit under the ad to get the game. It’s HTML5 not flash so it works on PC and mobile regardless of platform! Watch out for malicious rehosts of the game, play Grow games on eyezmaze.com.

Grow Comeback Endings

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

Item 1
Dumbell
Item 2
Heart
Item 3

Item 4

Item 5

Item 6

Secret Ending 1

Grow games usually have at least one secret ending. This one has two!

Mothergunship Tips & Tricks Guide

Mothergunship is out now for PS4, PC, and Xbox One! You can buy it for PC here or digitally for Xbox One/PS4.

I’ve been having a blast with it so I’ve started a guide to share some important info and tips! I’ll be expanding it over the next few days/weeks, so feel free to suggest info, tell me what I’m missing, or ask questions in the comments!

Mothergunship Essential Tips

Progression

The game is a “roguelite” meaning it has progression systems between runs; you lose the currently held gun parts but nothing else upon dying. This means you’re always moving forward and at most you “lose” a short play session’s worth of progress, rather than starting over from the beginning.

This makes Mothergunship much more accessible for those who haven’t played many Roguelike games, but don’t think it won’t get harder as you go along! But generally, don’t be afraid to experiment and learn by doing, since there’s very little to lose.

Note that not all features are unlocked from the start; progress through the main story missions to unlock various features like the ability to spend Experience, the Smugger’s Shop, Endless Mode etc.

Experience (purple diamonds) are used to level up your mech between levels, and can raise your jump count, movement speed, HP, hazard resistance, energy cap, energy recharge rate, ability to find secrets, and resistance to landing stun.

Coins can be used inside or outside of a level; inside a level Coins buy very cheap gun parts that are often critical to surviving and progressing through the map. After a level, extra coins are added to a total from which you can buy (very expensive) guns in the Smuggler’s stop.

Gun Parts can be gained from shops inside levels, and are kept as long as you beat the level. Gun parts are never dropped randomly or found in secrets; only shops.

Gun Parts are the only thing in the game that can be ‘lost’, but you only lose what you found in the level, plus anything you decide to take along. By simply not taking a favored gun on a risky mission, you can avoid losing it. Even if you do lose a good one, you can potentially get it back from the Lost and Found part of the Smuggler’s stop (for a fee, of course!).

There is (for some ungodly reason) a limit of 100 gun parts, so after you pick up too many gun parts, you’ll have to sell some.You’ll never be unable to pick up a gun part and lose it instantly; at the end of a mission you pick which parts to sell.

Kiting and dodging

Kiting (the practice of running around enemies to avoid their shots) is critical in this game (it is a bullet ballet after all). Certain enemies have limited ranges, unusual bullet arcs, or limited turning radiuses. 

Large cannons in particular you can often stand directly behind and hit, other enemies you’ll have to circle strafe around to keep them from hitting you. 

It’s often best to clear out low-HP smaller enemies before engaging in a strafe-down with a larger, high-HP enemy. You can only keep track of so much at once, and the difference in health can be quite large.

Tap Tap Fish Second Anniversary Event (2018) Guide

This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the July 2nd Anniversary Event (2018) information. See the main guide for a more comprehensive set of information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!

Support me on Patreon to help me keep making great guides! Paypal also accepted.

Update 2018-07-16: Baby Corgi does not require the IAP! I made a video discussing problems with the event.

Last year’s fish are included, also the babies; the costs/unlocks for them can be found at the 2017 Anniversary Event Guide. Tap the orange clownfish in the event tab to switch tabs to the 2017 fish. The 2018 event themes work for the 2017 unlocks, you do not need to buy the IAP.

A new fusion fish update is also included but not part of the event. See the Fusion Fish Guide for that info.

Pokemon Quest Recipe Guide

Recipes in Pokemon Quest are one of the most important (and initially, most confusing) aspects of the game. They’re the primary way of getting new pokemon, and without the right recipe you just can’t get some pokemon. So here I’ve compiled the basic recipes, how to make them, and some supporting info to help get you going!

The information in this guide should apply 100% to both mobile (iOS and Android) and Nintendo Switch versions of the game, though I primarily play on Mobile. 

If this guide’s successful (and I keep playing the game) I’ll look into making other guides for the game. I started with just this one since I find myself always having to look it up anyway. As always, feel free to comment to ask questions or point out new info!

Basic Recipe Info

Recipes are the primary way of getting new pokemon in Pokemon Quest so it’s important to understand how they work to get what you want and avoid wasting materials.

Higher quality materials attract rarer pokemon but take more turns/expeditions to complete; early on you should focus on low-quality recipes to quickly fill out your common pokemon list and keep a steady flow of new pokemon and not worry too much about rare ingredients.

Note that higher-evolutions are never obtained through recipes, you’ll always get basic pokemon. Pokemon in Pokemon Quest appear to always evolve via level-up rather than other conditions. (Not sure about Eevee yet).

Pokemon Quest Recipes List

Note Rainbow Matter can generally be substituted for recipes to raise their quality level.

Even if you don’t necessarily want pokemon of a specific recipe, I’d recommend going down the list and completing one of each recipe as one of your first tasks ingame. This not only completes your recipe book ingame for easy reference, but you get some rewards for completing Challenges as well.

Note that some combinations meet the requirements of multiple recipes, if this is the case the result is the lowest number from the list that it satisfies (not counting Mulligan stew).
