    Gave it another shot. The moment to moment gameplay is still terribly tedious after a few hours. It challenges neither my reflexes nor my intellect, it's just a work-like grind. Oh well. Like I said before, if you're the type of person that loves Diablo/PoE/etc. and are looking for another unpaid job to spend time on in your spare hours, you could do worse that Noita.

    While I do like this game quite a bit I also find it pretty tedious at the same time. So often I spend a lot of time trying to scrape together a good run only to get instakilled my some sudden bullshit.
    Sometimes depending on what wands I find I could be even more careful, but the game already drags a lot as it is. Considering how long crippling status effects like blind and no spell casting lasts maybe the game does expect you to just stand around a whole lot more than I do, but then getting instakilled by bullshit later on would be even more tiresome.

    Rediscovered Noita since it has one magical quality - you can play it while mining. I kid you not, doesn't even make a dent. This kind of old-school coding brings a smile on my face.

    Since I've long since done everything normal the game has to offer, I've been now dicking about in the 1.0, just looking for secrets and beating bosses.

    I have to say, Noita is a game for a special kind of an autist. If we look beyond the secret messages "encoded" with a special language and the cryptic hints on tablets, there are no quest compasses. So if you play this one blind, I doubt you'll ever discover all the hidden things.

    The game barely has any steam achievements, but there is an in-game "tracker" on the top of the world tree. The game never tells what you actually did to unlock them, but there are a ton of really really silly things it keeps track of.

    Like the "New Sun" quest. If you don't have a walkthrough, you will never ever figure it out. Not only will it kill you several times, but the amount of... well tedium you have to go through to unlock all the possible 'cheevos on it...

    The guy who did the 33 Orb "true ending" live on Twitch must be a special kind of a retard.

    Spell wise they've been pretty conservative with the patches, it seems. The only thing that stands out are the plasma spells. I killed myself like ten times in a row trying to get them to work. I mean, should be pretty basic: don't walk into it once you fire, it will kill you...

    - Add a "slow shot" -modifier - it kills you, as it shoots backwards?
    - Add a "chain spell" -modifier - it kills you, as it starts shooting in random directions
    - Add a "homing" -modifier - should be obvious, but you just couldn't help yourself, eh
    - Add a "freeze" -modifier - combining hot plasma and subzero freeze is a great idea

    Slow shot could be used for healing bolts.

    This is the first rougelike i reallt like so far. Each run feels TRULY different and it's the only one game i really feel benefit from randomly generated layout and loot. The learning curve is great so far. Like rhe first half dozen runs i didn't know wtf i am doing and blowing shit up randomly and kept dying, after that i learned to approach things tactically and got more and more progress. Some fucks ups due to random factors are actually fun too. Like when i met the tnt throwing guys while standing on a pile of coal, while the previous platform got flooded by acid spitting orb thing that also bleed acids.

    It's just incredible

    Made a wand combining magic missile with trigger and luminous drill, got OHKO armor piercing sniper rifle. Died in hiisi base. This is my first real block so far. The first 3 levels aren't that hard anymore as i learned better ways to wand craft and the overall mechanics. But yeah, the combination of what you can do is fucking bonkers.

    In some previous run, i got those air blast thing which i combine a simple torch and made a flamethrower.

    Yeah, it's fascinating how such a seemingly harmless spell can, in the right combination, turn into a machinery of doom. My first winning run was with a wand that had Gust of Wind as a permanent effect, and which I had loaded with chainsaw spells... it literally ate through rock (and Hiisi, and the end boss, and everything else...) faster than I could move. Only drawback was that any gold nuggets were usually gone with the wind.

    But I've definitely found that a careful, planned approach works better than going in guns blazing. If you lose control of your positioning, you die, often in hilarious ways. My second winning wand, for example, had such insane recoil that I always had to position myself against a firm surface (or better, a corner) before using it.

    There are distinct milestones and goals to be reached until hisii base:
    1. Dagame dealer wand - either fast firing with good regen or other delivering good punch, but generally fast firing less damage is better than big damage slower firing
    2. Digging wand - anything to dig. Because you'll have to dig every corner of coal mines and mushroom caves for health boost
    3. Good perks - if you are given shitty perks then better to restart than waste time.

    I try make wands that both digs and damages. I love the Plasma Beam and Plasma Cutter spells despite me almost always accidentally killing myself with them.

    Luminous Drill and Chainsaw work very well with the Bouncing Spells perk!

    Fair assessment. Would he have played more, it would've been thumbs down though, because the game is quite shit. Typical indie shit with a gimmick to lure you in, which turns out to be shit though.

    I think he should've noticed after 1k hours though.
