After finishing Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse I decided to play another game published by SSI which was made on the same engine. The original version which was made for Windows 3.1 and 95 couldn't be installed on 64 bit system. Fortunatelly GOG has released this oldie as well, so after a brief moment I could admire the title screen in 800x600 resolution. The mouse scrolling is optimal, and there are no artifacts. The only problem that I've stumbled upon, are the random crashes. Sometimes they happened right after saving the game (which aren't corrupted, so nothing bad happens). While later on it occured after some sequence with voice acting. It wasn't as frequent, as I feared, so I could endure this without any problem.

Without further ado, let's start the LP with an intro sequence.




Which doesn't tell us much. Giant bees are attacking some random village.

After that we see this screen.

I've decided to play on medium difficulty for balanced experience and naming my digital alter ego Hudson, because this game is apparently full of bugs. There are no other things that we can change. The box cover is totally misleading since we can't make our hero with blond hair.

We are somewhere in the gigantic web labyrinth, where the giant spider queen is being irritated by seeing us again. I don't know what she means by that, but I'm sure we will learn about it later on. She is bored with humans trying to be heroes, does a devil hand sign with her right hand (seriously, she does that!) and sends us ... somewhere.

Hudson without any feedback tells me, that he was meeting his sister.

"Yeah, but is our sister hot?"

Patience Melcar.





This is a village of Addegun. The crabs may look harmless, but they actually attack and you will loose health. It's best to just avoid them.

The interface is really simple. We have a backpack icon with all our items which we find and the spellbook. The three circles are for choosing the spells from the book for quick use (with Z,X and C buttons). We control the power of the spell, by deciding how long we keep the magic attack on hold. The spell power grows, and we can see how much on the small horizontal bar above the circles. The red bar on the left is our life, and the green-yellow one is for mana. The latter one replenishes itself with the passing time and sometimes when we reach some major plot point. It's an action adventure game in it's heart just like Al-Qadim.

I can go only in the northern direction.

From the nearby hut the doors are smashed and two 100 % white zombie like creatures are really interested in me. I introduce myself properly with both fists.

lzbms8gewyudjp7.png


Damn! Hudson must be a long distant relative of Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star.

He is so powerful that he turned the zombies into pile of intestines and bones without any problem. I found a Mana Bolt spell which one of the monsters had. It's really weak, but I can keep some distance between myself and enemies, and that's what really counts.

Time to start looking for valuable stuff in the village. I need everything what I can get.

abkytosvontgkpr.png


But apart from more corpses and empty vases with some furniture the place is empty. I move to the western part of island.
I finally meet another person.

ar9nq3xqak6cj8i.png


That is a good question. There is something odd happening here.

muuoc8smxmz4kpi.png


After that there is nothing more I can talk about. Not that I want to. I walk slowly away. The rocks have created the natural maze, but I find exit without any problems. There is another men who starts the conversation.

a6oqhh2utbuojf4.png


After that he isn't talkative much, so I can ignore him for the time being. He unlocks the path for me and I stumble upon a small boy, who apparently is my younger brother.

It's hard to tell, but since it is basically a tutorial chapter I think that not for long.

Hah, I knew it.

:drink:

abeeyb24vmbzk65.png


Since the hut on the right is so close I just check up just to be sure I don't miss anything.

rlete0vqfyx3kws.png


Well, it turns out it's aunt Rellia and uncle Vadin. Things aren't looking good.

At least know I know what will be the next step in our journey, and what to expect. We don't learn much from other dialogue options. I tried to scout the area, but surprisingly a group of giant mosquitoes attacks the villagers. Rumble time!

20190408233410ztkte.png


20190408233444arkwa.png


The pack divides the attack between the smaller groups, and unfortunately the guy who was blocking my path died. We move quicker than them, so basically is a hit and run operation. The mana bolt spell was useful and I can finally scavenge the remaining parts of the village.

20190408233517gckl3.png


I find an amulet nearby. I can't wear it and use it, but I'm sure it will be useful.

201904082335545nk73.png


In one of the huts I find a really interesting scrolls regarding the resurrection ritual. I've got the amulet already, yay.
I visit Ennest, who is the leader of the village and has some interesting information to share with us.

I ask him about the Shaman, since he is the one I would need to resurrect.

20190408233707r6kft.png


20190408233708bbkw9.png


And the Water Nymph as well.

20190408233716vrkxg.png


20190408233717oekjk.png


I think we can clearly see what we will have to do here. I finally check up with my brother. He introduces us to the storyteller, who gives us a special Pendant of Communication. This allows him to follow our actions through the course of the game, and comment on them every now and then. It is quite annoying to be honest, but we can't progress without it.

20190408233752c2kyp.png


He gives us armor spell, which is quite useful. It creates the grey magic barrier which makes us less fragile.
After that I try to enter one last hut again, but without any success.

201904082339178qkcx.png


Well, I've killed all the hostiles in the area. If you want it to be any more safe, you need to find a new place to live. Whatever, time to move on and find the corpse of the shaman.


20190408234010efkhd.png


A helpful crow is making sounds while he is near the corpse of the shaman. Now I need to find some blood that to start the ritual. Our birdie is really helpful and makes a short trip towards south.

20190408234034kckiv.png


There is one problem though. I'm missing something, since I can't take blood with my bare hands. After quick tour I realize that I missed the spot near the unfriendly necrophile.

201904082325040okhy.png


A sea sponge, how creative. I return to the corpse and finally the shaman is alive.

20190408234116ssj4u.png


20190408234118pkjsc.png


20190408234122yykj4.png



Or more like undead, because he resembles the earlier creatures that I have killed. The spell won't last long so we quickly run to the altar to summon the Nymph. I wonder how will she look.

20190408234236mujb6.png


Behold the beautiful...

20190408234257kmjae.png


Nymph !?!? That was unexpected.

:mhd:


20190408234303rcjje.png


20190408234305vbko5.png


Poor shaman is dead again, but he saved the island.

201904082343131djzv.png


Looks like someone has unusual taste, if you ask me.


The village leader is grateful to the shaman, but he forgot to mention us.

20190408234353jfjsd.png

Of course I accept the quest. Maybe we will receive something nice in return.

201904082347475zkig.png


201904082347588ojpz.png


This ends first chapter of the story, which was rather simple and easy to complete. From now on things will probably get more interesting and more difficult. Time to find Sulianna. All aboard!

Part II : Welcome To The Jungle

20190408234809hfjr8.png


After arriving I start searching the area for people of interest and useful items.

Dagan isn't really a fountain of information really, and quickly shuts any possible interesting conversations options.

20190408235134u6jxz.png


I see a jar of honey in this room, but the bees will kill me if I try to take it. I know, because I've try to take it.

20190408235229lfjgx.png


Oh really? I don't see any guards and magical barriers so let's see what's in this building.

20190408235246ncjgs.png


Some strange scroll regarding the convertion...

201904082352523bjva.png


... and a mooka statue. I don't really know what I can use it for, but whatever.

201904082352591fkue.png


Last, but not least, some very interesting information regarding a nectar and transformation of some sort. I look other smaller houses to concentrate on the big one behind the closed gate.

201904082353567fkg9.png


20190408235414sajly.png


20190408235526f6jad.png


I forgot in my first entry, that regarding the hp/mana, we can find some places, where we can sleep for free to restore them. There aren't many of them, but considering the scarcity of potions, it can be really helpful if you are running on fumes. Let's talk to the men, who is near the centre of the building, in which some sort of festivities are underway.

He seems to be... confused. Really confused.

(I'll be using H: for Hudson and A: for answers depending on the person if needed)

20190408235629byj25.png


H: I am Squire Warrick of Garos
A: Greetings, Warbler. We are saved! Saved!

H: Saved? Saved from what?
A: Saved from eating foul mammals, friend. No more grubbing in the dirt for food with the jagtera here! Haha! But wait...
You are not Hadrik! Why have you come back so soon?

H: Come back? I never left!
A: There is no need to shout, young lady. I heard you perfectly well for the first time. Now where did your brother go? He was here a moment ago. (Wait, what?)

H: I think you are really confused.
A: I'm not confused! Just happy. They have returned, you know. Can you believe it! Treasure sailing, sweet honey, food on the table... . No more grubbing in the dirt! Haha! Soon the tall treasure ships with white sails a-billowing because our armies jaws clacking! Carapaces gleaming! Haha! Giant slaves weeding my fields! Reaping my grain! Washing my robes! Jagtera roasting on spit! Delicious! Swimming in lakes of liquid gold. Streets paved with diamonds! They'll do the work! They'll raise the crops! They'll lick the grim from my boots! They'll go to war! Other nations will bow to us and send us generous tribute!

At this point of conversation I just want to ask him about my sister, since he is just spewing same unhinged things about Jagtera. And no, I don't know why the guy confuses my name all the time, and then he thinks I'm a women. But it's 2019, so I won't judge. Just keep your hands, where I can see them.

H: My sister - have you talked with her?
A: Of course! That is, yes. At least I think so. I mean, probably. More likely than not.

H: More likely than not she was my sister?
A: More likely than not I talked to her. She looked like you. Her name was Su... Sule... Sulie...
H: Sulianna?
A: Of course! That is, yes. At least I think so. More likely than not.
H: More likely than not Sulianna was her name?
A: More likely than not Sulianna is your sister.
:lol:
H: Sulianna is my sister!
A: See? Just as I told you. I told her what I told you. They have returned!
H: The Jagtera, you mean?
A: Yes!

Enough is enough! I'm loosing patience here, and the guy obviously has some real problems. I move onward.

I try to talk with the other guy who is guarding the doors. I'm direct and ask again about Sulianna.

So she isn't in the town probably. I try to ask other people. What the hell are they doing to that beetle creature?

20190409000101eukst.png


I try to ask about the Sulianna again. But instead I met the girl, who Clorin mentioned regarding the flowers I should deliver.

Cool. I guess this quest was not a waste of time after all. I try to find more information regarding the Jagtera, nectar and the village.

20190409000234gqjy2.png


20190409000259gsk3l.png


20190409000301takxg.png


The natives just talk about the joy of nectar, and how everyone should taste it. Almost like they are in some strange hypnotic state. I learn nothing else from them. They just want to drink that sweet golden nectar. The strangers wearing the red robes are the nobles. I don't expect much from them, but I might try to learn more about them.

I'll keep that in mind. Although information regarding the transformation that I found in the scroll makes me think why the nobles are so eager to give it to the people. Nothing suspicious here! Oh well, I won't drink it for now. Let's talk with the lady on the right with a men beside her.

Hmm, I need to watch out and not be rude towards the old lady and nobles.

20190409000530mtj35.png


Apart from that, I can't ask about anything interesting. I almost finished the scouting of the whole area. I might as well see, what's in the nearby doors at the eastern exit... I met some strange lady.

201904090006082wj67.png


And a yellow beetle farts rainbows at morning.

20190409000613nfj5h.png


Yeah, start talking some sense. I have headache from the conversation with the guy who is nearby. I can introduce you to him, but you probably know him already.

201904090006157rjyk.png


20190409000618f1kqh.png


She quietly walks away, while some two men are shouting at me and asking about a women who was with me. I'm playing innocent of course.

We learn about the underground resistance movement and where it is located. Our sister is in the secret base, so we obviously need to venture the area and find it. The jungle is like a big crossroads, where we need to go in a specific direction to find specific place. There are some cavern entries as well, so I take my time and try to see as much as possible. There are enemies in the jungle, but it's easier to just avoid them, than fight.

2019040911301894kxg.png


I found deserted village with a strange portal like thing. But unfortunately it's not working.

20190409113035ifkq4.png


To my surprise I find one last living men among the ruins. He doesn't want me to enter though.

20190409113221f4j4i.png


I also stumble upon some noble and a mutated guard of his. He doesn't want to be bothered right now, and I don't want to start a fight.

The last interesting encounter for now, is the ghost of the men, who apparently is dead. He tells us, that probably it's because he killed some people in the vengeance. For now, I can't help him.

Finally, I reach the place, where the base is situated.

Since Hudson is not from Phoros, does drinking the nectar then make him stronger?

All them creepy crawlies aside, the game looks very colourful and pretty. Yet to reach it on my "to-play" list of games.

Oh, this game was cool. More interesting than most AAA titles bundled together and wit many quirky little details (for example, try coming back to the starter village, you'll see what happens, or mess up with random tombs, you might have ghosts spawn to stop you from desecrating their own graves).

Since Hudson is not from Phoros, does drinking the nectar then make him stronger?

It's stated pretty much what happens if you do. Hudson* is a dirty foreigner so he won't be too badly affected by taking the local drugs here. At least for now.
The game nowadays wouldn't be taken well, since taking exotic substances is a must-have to advance the story here.

H: Saved? Saved from what?
A: Saved from eating foul mammals, friend. No more grubbing in the dirt for food with the jagtera here!

This must be where some of the UN's latest ideas regarding world hunger came from. EAt insects lol!


*If we're talking about bugs, you should have named the MC as Todd, Howard, or even Mac(intosh).

Part III : Brother, do you even lift?

After finding the hideout, the guard stops me immediately and asks me, if I'm a mutant or a human. I'm going for direct response and tell him, that I'm brother of Sulianna.

Smaller? She must have really been pumping iron when I was absent.

After that cold welcome I can move to the west.

For the time being the doors are closed, so I kill some time by talking with the men who looks like the leader of this small group of rebels.

201904091137459njsg.png


I introduce myself by mentioning Cetina who gave me direction to their base.

20190409113918mlket.png



20190409113938kejb0.png


Finally, I found my ... sister ?! Damn, she really is strong and independent women, that's for sure. The guard was right after all.

20190409114005kxjqv.png


201904091140111cjt2.png


We quickly catch on, but there is someone else with her. A suspicious figure called Nookadum.

Of course I'm willing to take the risk on myself and try the nectar, since everyone is talking all the time about it. Besides, it could make things more interesting. But I can sense that I'm not the only one interested in it.

Just to be sure, and to avoid unnecessary backtracking, I ask the leader of a small group, if he has anything to add regarding my mission.

The jungle is crawling with enemies, but for now I just keep running since there is no point in killing them. Finally in the western part of the mountain, i find a single rebel.

Cool, I can do that. I've already made some map with the locations, and scouting will be a good opportunity to add more of them.



20190409115506uskjy.png


I go to the Thelyd's stronghold. Hudson hears something, that keep him going up north without me having any control. What's going on?

20190409115518trk8v.png


20190409115526sikwm.png


20190409115540e6jwc.png


After that I have gained control once again. Hudson thinks loudly and tells me that I shouldn't be here for too long. I quickly grab the scrolls and read them.

After that the message ends. I quickly check the entrance.

20190409120911a6k6g.png


The Thelyds are giant ants, and as you already know, there is a queen somewhere in this labyrinth. Thelyds are really aggresive, especially the big black ones who are warriors and I quickly decide to evacuate. Whoever was here, he is probably dead or in the storeroom waiting to be eaten.

20190409120928mvkli.png


In the nearby hut I found an interesting book. Sadly I can't read it.

20190409121114hujz3.png


In the far west I find some kind of a gigantic palace with a nasty looking things. They won't attack me on sight, which is probably a big plus, judging from today's meals that you can see on the plates.

20190409121140rpjkd.png


The southwest part isn't better at all. The spider webs are blocking the path, and I quickly evacuate from the area.

I find a cave at the south of the big mountain that I was told to check as well.

201904091229230bkk4.png


20190409123113m0jft.png


The place is a real maze, but I can finally use my boosted powers. It seems the nectar doesn't make a big difference.

201904091231373tj3t.png


The mana bolt spell is really useful with all those wide corridors.

20190409123159rqkvt.png


I kill all the larvas. I don't know if it makes any difference, but I don't want to be ambushed by huge groups in the later parts of the game.

20190409123408hcjk1.png


How did this ended up here?

20190409123645qbjnl.png


201904091236504okrz.png


Finally, I'm returning to the ....

201904091238321ekwk.png


base ? Damn, looks like everyone left in a hurry and the place is infested with bugs. But where are the rebels?

20190409124015t0jnu.png


Fortunately for me, there is a short note from Sulianna.

201904091240256ejpz.png


The new base is situated in the far north. Damn, they are quick builders.

20190409132559epjr6.png


Ha. I finally meet Zizu, I tell her about the stronghold and the cave. I ask about my sister.

20190409132609asjqe.png


She also mentions the statue, that was brought by one of the soldiers.

Very interesting. I have already found some statues, and they will most probably be useful to us after all.

Our little chit chat must stop here. The bugs! They're coming outta the goddamn walls!

2019040913274221jgj.png


20190409132815lgkr9.png


Phew, that was close. The red ones aren't so hard to kill. But the browns with the red symbols really mean business.

201904091328409jkm5.png


20190409133025yljk8.png


I quickly move and pull the switch. It's a total massacre down here.

20190409133047r3j56.png

Not really, probably too small dosage or because it was the first time I took it.

I see a healer nearby. Things are looking really grim judging from the state of the patients.

20190409133231ugjwq.png


20190409133347ntkzr.png


Aid heals us constantly through some short time, while Heal gives a constant bigger dosage of health.

20190409133430rrkhm.png


After that I go outside to find Darmot, who was with a group of soldiers during the attack on the second base.

201904091337092fkq7.png


Venturing through the mountain, I finally found him. Situation is changing from bad to worse.

Wow, talking about a change of scenery.

20190409133825jekw9.png


This place is really something else, really clean, but it feels more like a tomb than a place where someone would live.

On the western corner I saw someone. A strange green person, but he lock the doors behind and I can't do anything about them. Time to go back.

2019040913415235jzb.png


WTF! Another breach and there is no one left.

:imperialscum:


Let's rock!

20190409134211n2jf6.png


20190409134308x0kkt.png


I find another scroll, and I think to myself, that would be a great idea to take it with me. Just to avoid any more situations like this. Ah, la resistance!



201904091347542tkke.png


I find the newest locations of the rebel's base. I need to use teleport on the left to be able to use the wooden elevator. The place needs a neon sign to not make it more obvious.

20190409135015fykw2.png


Well, it looks I was right. The nobles don't fool around and they are really serious about the extermination of any opposition.

2019040913504061jtb.png


All those tombstones...

There are four doors in the south. They are guarded by an old men.

:negative:

The story is really merciless and we see most of the rebels wiped out.

That was brutal. It seems that I'm the only one capable of doing something about the nobles. Not counting a crazy Crispy and some kids.

20190409135745s0jfx.png


Hm. Interesting, go on.

20190409135748uvk4a.png


The kid is leaving, and I knock one more time to give and old men the answer to his riddle.

It's easy to brute force your answer here, since there is no penalty regarding the number of answers really. Forfend did avoid the jaws decend, and since he is the only one left alive it makes sense.

Oh great. So Forfend ends up in his grave, and there are some strange dark ghosts attacking me as well. Luckilly I can move to the safe location behind the doors.

201904091400177ekty.png


Well, at least there is a healer still alive.

Good, something to focus on. Because right now I really don't know how to move up with my quest. Hmm, that carpet looks fabulous, maybe it's a magic carpet from Al Qadim?

20190409142937ztkq6.png


Coin in the carpet? Who does that? The carpet can't be used for quick transport, but it's still interesting finding.

Since there is nothing else to do, I check my inventory. I forgot about the book which I found earlier. There was a men living in a desolated village who could be interested in it.

Old men asks me, to read him the beginning of the book, and after that lets me in.

201904091411539kkdv.png


He is a great source of information, so I ask him about every topic from the list:

The Underground hall I visited.

Hmm, that's very nice but I wonder what does he drink or eat? No matter, this was a very interesting conversation. I decide to scout the eastern part of the jungle, since it was the only one that I can visit without running in circles. Bingo! the pyramid mentioned in the carpet. That must be it.

20190409141608tfkyd.png


The top of the pyramid automatically opens and I'm alone in some bizzare room. Full of nasty holes, full of really nasty spikes. The thing at the centre looks like an altar of some sorts. I need to carefully move up there.

2019040914173687jtz.png


20190409143947p7jtl.png


The talisman! The coin that was in the carpet.

201904091439535aj3r.png


20190409144042u5jxg.png


I will go with the leash first, since it's the first choice on the list.

Well, It turns out that I need a name, which I need to use during the whole ritual. Fortunately the altar being tells me, to ask the beekeeper about it.


20190409145008d8kyl.png


After a long journey back, I find the beekeeper. The men looks strange.

It's time for me to solve the ritual puzzle and see what's going on with the giant bees aka Panorpids.





This was a rather depressive chapter in our story, and next time hopefully I will start fighting back after what happened with the rebels and Sulianna.

Enthusiasm didn't help the revolution in their war against bugs and nobles.
And them bug lore is suprisingly deep.

That was one long update. Also, yeah, the rebels don't last long, even if the game is surprisingly progressive for its age.
Fun fact: The ghosts in that grim puzzle may randomly spawn if you take too long to solve the puzzle, or guess incorrectly too many times. Moreover, one of the graves that spawn ghosts is Sully's one, as if she was so mad at you she came back from the dead to punch you. Thankfully, the main character has a such mean hook that he can hurt ghosts with his bare hands.
No idea if the nectar improves your attack power though, it wasn't clear. Speaking of: That village with the bee-lover had a noble offering you nectar. You should try getting that if you can because it has a time-limit of sorts. You'll realize when exactly you're too late to get said nectar.

That was one long update.

Due to the jungle being semi-open I wanted to put more lore/context into the update and it's really long, I agree. Al Qadim was easier because it was more linear. I intend to make shorter updates for convenience. Thanks for the tip about the nectar.

2019040915023940klq.png


After obtaining the information about the ritual, I can finally invoke the bee servant.

20190409150241uvkmf.png


20190409150243ktje5.png


What is interesting, is that we are controlling the mind of the Panorpid servant. We are automatically sent to the hive.

20190409183359q3k68.png


As you can see, there is not much to see here. There are separate chamber closed for now, and beside some workers there is only a guard here.
What I found the hard way, it's to not irritate him with inane question regarding the hive. He gets angry quickly and I was attacked by some other warriors as well.

2019040918340659knr.png


RIP

Ok. Time to restore my save game.

20190409183443lhk4v.png


I fly into the north, and see a sort of tube. Behind this doors is the Queen, who will be giving me tasks to fulfill. She isn't impressed by our present.

20190409183451psk9p.png


20190409183452aekkr.png


Here is our first quest:

20190409183454q6kz1.png


201904091834584wjg7.png


After that, a second task:

20190409183503u1jr1.png

20190409183510t4ka3.png


20190409183512xkjcv.png




20190409183541a2kzs.png


The first task is very straightforward. But to open to chamber with the Alpha warrior, I need to ask the guardian about it. This time I have more luck, but he tells us that we probably don't stand a chance. Only one way to find out!

20190409183552wojz5.png


20190409183636ssjgd.png


After that, the Alpha introduces himself. Since I don't have any spells I need to watch out for my health. He is a honorable enemy, so there is no extra allies that would help him. After some melee fight I'm victorious. I guess he wasn't so tough after all.

20190409183729iikl5.png


20190409183751o8ked.png


Now I need to fulfill other quests. I ask the guard about the blood chamber. It's really helpful to see, how does he open it. Pressing the hexagonal symbols in a proper sequence is the only way to open each room in this location.

20190409183837fckqd.png


The best blood, is the one with the air bubbles, and it's the last one at the north. I drink as much as I can of it.

20190409183851h1kxs.png



20190409184021dfjad.png


I put all the blood in the little hole near the Queen chamber. Now starts the harder part.

20190409184041h3kd9.png


I ask politely about the egg chamber. Unfortunately this doesn't work like before.

20190409184046jwk07.png


20190409184048xpj8t.png


20190409184051uoke5.png


Well, the guardian didn't give me much choice.
I hope this time there won't any surprises regarding the number of enemies.

20190409184102jwkwj.png


Phew, he was a tough cookie but I can now open all the necessary chambers. But without the assist I need to ask the workers how to open them.

20190409184833tdjgi.png


20190409184835m0j8n.png


I asked a couple of them to finally try it myself. The sequences aren't really complicated - you need to push 4 symbols to open a chamber, while there is 11 symbols overall.

Solution for egg chamber:

x

x x 4 x

x 1 x

2 x

3


20190409184448zakzb.png


20190409184456dgjzk.png


20190409184614ojjwa.png


I take the egg with me, and put it in the whole with the blood.

Now for the last chamber, where the wax is stored.

Solution for sequence to open it:

x

x x x 4

x 1 2

x x

3



20190409184757ntkjs.png


I grab the wax, and seal the hole with it.

201904091849248rj3h.png


20190409184929yrkue.png


I have done everything just like the Queen wanted. Unfortunately this still doesn't give me the green light to visit her. I need to play a role of a Sherlock Holmes The Consulting Detective.

After leaving the pyramid I'm looking for the mentioned body of the noble. There is also a Mooka statue and a scroll.

20190409185137r7k8s.png


20190409185146zvkd8.png


Hey, it's a new spell. Whirlwind isn't very powerful, but it can be a nuisance for the lesser foes.

20190409185423yjkf0.png


I bring the body as instructed.

Finally!

20190409185445lmjq1.png


Not! Damn, I'm in some really horrifying chamber filled with skeletons. I don't want to know what hornets in this world do with people, if bees do something like this.

The queen gives me a riddle to solve.

A murder mystery! The Queen gives me a free hint to have something that I can start with.

20190409185513aujhj.png


20190409185519d9kco.png


Of course it's vital to ask all three mentioned Panorpids about the case.

20190409185521yxk1h.png


:shredder:


First I ask Cleopid about the murder.

It's time to see who is who in this case and give the Queen the needed answers.

20190409185721qujks.png


So who did it?

It was Cleopid. My first questioned servant.

Gulp. The Queen is a big girl and looks intimidating.

The Panorpid Queen is the first boss I have to face. We don't have any spells, and can't use potions / nectar (the nectar can be used as a health potion).
The Queen doesn't move, and that is good for us. She start with some vague threats and then the fight starts. There are Champion Panorpids with her, and it's necessary to kill them first, one by one, and to be locked by two or three of them. Otherwise we will be killed in a short time manner. After that I started attacking the Queen bitch. She uses some weak spells, like for example Mana Bolt, but quickly she can change her mind and in our direction we will see up to 4-5 Lighting Bolts, that can bounce off the walls. If that wasn't enough, she has also a deadly Acid Bolt and Fire Ball spells almost at the same time. If you are hit by the first, you are dead. The best way to deal with her, is to stay mobile at the beginning, where she will test our flying skills. After that the best approach is to be near her, above, and attack her while watching out for condensed magic attacks. Luckilly we have also a spit attack, which can be used for a distant attacks. That will speed up the duel and after almost 10-15 times I already have beaten her. I really didn't expected the beginning to be such unforgivable, but that is a good lesson for a future boss fights.

After that I return to my human body. I think I have had enough of bees for today. Time to see what was hidden in a chamber.

Eww, that's nasty. The Queen is dead, and behind her I grab the scroll with the Cure Poison spell. I'm sure it will be useful.

Oh, but what's this? A nice big pile of nectar! Time to consume more and gain more strenght. I hope this time the effect will be more significant.

:what:

Damn, the nectar must have been really fresh.


What the hell? Looks like the nectar is really working, but I didn't expected this. I'm now mutated and start my metamorphosis.

It's time to roam through the jungle with a new version of Hudson with more strenght in his arms/claws.

How do you do, fellow bugs?

We're beautiful now!

And i have a suspicion that these jagtera are not truly loyal towards their noble masters.

You should have summarized what the queen insect says before attacking you, I don't remember how it was able to tell you were an intruder. Also, you should have tried to upload a video of the "transformation sequence" that happens upon eating the royal jelly thing, that one was metal. The dude in the game's cover was a big hint that things would get... Weird. However, I'm not sure if you can ask the nectar in that village by now, since after certain events in-game (including this one), the island's landscape changes due these bugs' actions. Lastly, I'm not sure if there was a speed up magic spell but, if not, you should be able to eventually tough it out the trap with the deadly insects.

It's interesting that while Thunderscape's setting is a bit of a magi-tech thing, this game is quite exotic and more of an African/jungle theme, featuring one of the few "sapient bug hives" done well in videogames.

Done. The strange thing about the cover, is that our hero doesn't have such magnificent dark blond hair (it still looks great though). I wonder if there is even possible not be mutating to finish the game.

Clearly the technology of the time wasn't able to perfectly render such fabulous hair.

If the cover is not enough of a hint, the manual kinda (un)subtly implied you would be gaining "special abilities" through the game, so...


Thanks for including the transformation sequence and the boss' dialog, these were cool.
