First let me issue an apology to any nerds I insulted with part 1 of this article. Now I have unlocked the lost world of Krematoa, but still have not beaten it. I mentioned the difficulty level of this game versus the first two, but it has only gotten harder. To unlock levels in Krematoa you must find 15 Bonus coins, which are obtained by completing mini-challenges found in bonus barrels. The barrels are often located in hidden places randomly placed throughout the levels. There are two bonus barrels in every level, but you need to collect 15 of these coins JUST TO UNLOCK ONE OF THE BONUS KREMATOA levels. The people who created this game are sadistic.
Not just in the difficulty level but also in the terrifying scenarios they create. These are anthropomorphic apes, with characteristics directly related to that of children. Remember the Game Over screen? Every time we run out of lives we are reminded that these are practically babies that shouldn’t be out killing alligator men and giant rats but should be playing with an abacus in the playpen. And yet there are levels where:
- You climb up a tree with an enormous saw blade grinding it’s way toward you
- You climb up a cliff on a rope, while the rope is on fire constantly burning forcing you upward
- You run through a forest dodging CONSTANT lightning
I joke, of course. This is one of the most fun games I’ve ever played and it is incredibly addictive. I might also note that all the levels mentioned above are actually some of the most entertaining and exciting levels in the entire game. The hardest level in the game doesn’t sound that bad on paper. You just dodge these guys:
They’re called Koindozers or some shit, but you will come to know them as the devil. They cannot actually kill you themselves, they only have a shield. Plus we’ve seen their green counterpart throughout the entire game, they don’t move and are very easy to kill. In fact, if you kill them you get a special coin, so you’re always happy to see the green ones. However, these pink fuckers cannot be killed and will push you with their shield into any nearby opening. And this level is filled with cliffs and chasms. It takes quickness and precision to get by them. one mistake or slow maneuver can mean death.
Just trust me it’s awful. The game isn’t though, you should check it out! Expect more blogs up soon, and possibly a part three to this article as soon as I beat the lost world of Krematoa.
