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”.
2020-01-30: I haven’t kept up with MMF, but my Discord Server has! Pop in the #Hyperdimension channel if you have questions about new units or events. This guide still covers the basics for players struggling to play without knowing the language but might not be up to date.
2019-04-26: Added an Abridged Guide from @WaifuWarrior in the Discord! Green Heart was added to the game.
2019-02-07: Uzume and Tiara were added to the gacha. No rate up.
2019-02-06: Much more info added to the spreadsheet, best current CG reqs added to Items section.
2019-02-04: Starting to add more gameplay info about CGs, achievements etc. Icons were added to the spreadsheet for Characters/Items/CGs (Link Cards), thanks to everyone’s help on that! Info from the sheet is being worked into the guide. Added a lot of the item descriptions just now.
2019-02-03: Pseudo Cloud Save workaround discovered.
2019-02-02: Updated info on the save transfer feature (it’s not REALLY a cloud save yet), how to emulate the game (you don’t need a specific android version, just a recent one). Recommend android 7.1.2 for emulation, 5.1 freezes sometimes. Images added to the Characters/CGs/Items spreadsheet, thanks!
2019-02-01: Much more complete characters list/spreadsheet, thanks to the contributors! Added info on how to get the game working in emulator.

Mega Miracle Force Abridged Guide
From @WaifuWarrior#9296 in our Discord Server, here’s a quick guide to what you need to know; the game’s pretty simple and easy so this simple strategy will do you for almost any stage.
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)!
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 Day 2019 Hidden Fish
The event’s not released yet, so we don’t know the specifics yet. Here’s a list of the fish that I can see from the preview image, the names are made up.
Candy Goldfish (Hidden)
Watch 15 Event ads for roses
Couple Kissing Gourami (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use Volcanic Eruption skill 3 times
Bouquet Sea Slug
Own 5 Lace Spadefish
Own 5 Candy Goldfish
Couple Lobster (Hidden)
Have a Candy Nautilus in your tank for 10 minutes
The game has to be open and on screen for these kinds of unlocks. You can still play the game though.
Own 5 Couple Lobster
Own 20 Valentine’s 2019 Fish
Parfait Puffer (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use crab skill 25 times
Couple Seahorse (Hidden)
Equip Sweet Box costume and make one Parfait Puffer
Own 5 Parfait Puffer
Own 5 Couple Seahorse
Heart Oarfish (Hidden)
Equip Romantic Ocean Theme and take 1 picture of every Candy/Couple 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
These are also in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly. They all cost fusion materials (see the fusion guide) plus 2 2019 Valentine’s fish.
Pink Juvenile Pinnate Spadefish
Pink Striped Marlin
Pink Whale Shark
Wedding Town Whale
Valentine’s Day 2019 IAP Fish
Not required to unlock any other fish
This is another 20 day set of rewards just like the New Year’s Gift. Also like New Year’s Gift, you frustratingly only get a single one of each item and can do nothing to accelerate how fast you get anything beyond longing in once a day. Hopefully we have more than 20 days unlike the NYG at least.
Valentine’s Harp Coral
Log in 3 days
Gentleman Flamingo Coral
Log in 5 days
Baby Pink Whale
Log in 10 days
Lady Flamingo Coral
Log in 15 days
Baby Heart Sunfish
Log in 20 days
Valentine’s Parade Event Quest
Much simpler than the separate tank quests, the Valentine’s Day one is only a quest to unlock the Cupid Girl fish. Note you have to complete these in order.
Decorate the Party
Tap 50 roses
Own 1 of each Candy fish
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
This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Freshwater World tank 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)!
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.
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
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 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.
Secret Ending 1
Grow games usually have at least one secret ending. This one has two!
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
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.
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)!
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.
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).

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).
Yume Nikki Dream Diary is here, now with a Version 2.0 update that brings it closer to what most of us expected! Here I’ve documented a walkthrough of (most) of what you need to do, what effects do, the endings, and other information. This guide was written with the PC Version, but it should be accurate for everything in the Switch version too.
Feel free to comment to ask any questions or share info! I’ve provided links to some key terms in the Yume Nikki Wiki, feel free to get lost in the wiki as well, it’s quite enjoyable. I’m trying to link all the references to the original game, as they’re a rather significant amount of the enjoyment to be had in the game, so point out any I’ve missed as well!
For purpose of clarity, the full name Yume Nikki Dream Diary will be used when referring to this game, and Yume Nikki alone will be used to refer to the original game by Kikiyama.
Title: Yume Nikki -Dream Diary- Platform: PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch Languages: English, Japanese, French,Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Portuguese Release date: 2018-02-23 Developer: Kadokawa Corporation Price: $20 Length: About 4 hours Genre: Horror/Exploration Filesize: 3GB
2019-02-26: Yume Nikki Dream Diary released on Nintendo Switch! Added the solution for the Sky Pyramid Glyph puzzle I somehow forgot to add.
2018-06-10: Adding info for Version 2.0! Thanks a lot to this reddit thread for help with The Wilderness updates.
2018-05-31: Version 2.0 is out and it sounds great! I don’t have the guide updated yet for the new worlds/changes but feel free to ask questions in the comments.
2018-03-09: Expanded walkthrough, The Wilderness info completed and added The Nexus info. The only major stuff missing is a complete list of Concept Art locations (arg)
2018-03-07: Added an interesting theory from Reddit to the Theories section.
2018-03-02: A number of bug patches have been applied to the game lately, including the infamous jumping issues when the framerate is low. Minor guide corrections.
2018-02-28: Added much more Walkthrough info and listed the general location of each Effect.
2018-02-27: Explained (spoiler)’s music puzzle in the secret ending. Added The Mall to the walkthrough.
The Sewers, Block World, and Snow World, which are all connected
The Sewers is mostly a connection to existing worlds, plus a new puzzle/jellyfish is in it
Block World is accessed via The Sewers and is a puzzle blocking access to Snow World
Snow World has the Hat and Scarf effect, and access to Pink Sea/Poniko/Uboa
Most existing worlds are untouched beyond The Sewers connections
Two new effects, Hat and Scarf and Uboa Mask
Interact with Poniko’s desk while using the Lantern after triggering the Uboa Event (lights out) in Poniko’s room, then chase Uboa to get the Uboa Mask
Get Hat and Scarf in Snow World from Mafurako
Uboa’s Trap room added per above, it looks amazing
Four new subsections of The Wilderness added via a Lost Woods/looping maze puzzle including the Aztec Rave Monkey, some purple pylons, the hot springs room, and a lake you freeze to get some concept art
A new NES minigame added, Witch Adventure, referencing the Flight of the Witch event
This is found by finding the cat in The Sewers, then meeting it again at the roof of The Mall
The strangest addition, Madotsuki’s apartment now has a bathroom in the bottom corner, accessible only in the dream world. It has no apparent function.
All in all, 2.0 is a fantastic update that brings the game a fair bit more in line with the original and addresses several concerns of fans!
What is Yume Nikki -Dream Diary-?
As a heads-up in case you haven’t purchased the game yet (or haven’t started it), Yume Nikki is something closer to a “reimagining” of the original than typical remake or sequel.
Many are disappointed by what they find (as, well, was I) so it’s best to be aware of what you’re going in for. That said, if you’re a big enough fan of Yume Nikki, you’ll probably dive right in and play it like I did so I figured I would make a guide to help those who have already committed to it.
