You can have up to 4 configurations of powers. There are tabs right above the grid.

You can use the D pad to cycle through powers and press down to use them. Sure you still have to let go of the circle pad and time it but it's still easier I think, especially for powers that have you aiming a power up.

If you're going to use the dpad, might as well set Up to use power. Personally, I haven't gotten used to using the dpad yet.
Posted: 03/30/12, 23:38:36
I didn't know there was any way to use them BUT the d-pad?!
Posted: 03/31/12, 00:04:56

You can flick through them with the stylus and tap to use. I only figured out you can use the D pad after

What I done for the powers, I changed the controls so the A button changes for the next power to the right, Y for the next power to the left and B uses the highlighted power. It's great if you want to be able to move while selecting powers.

Well it's still good to have the D pad actually use the powers as some (well one that I know of) actually needs you to aim. So you can aim with the stylus and use with the D pad.

I got invited to a game from a guy in my contact list. Little did I know it was a one on one, no bots. Apparently sniping is a thing in that game too. It was the most boring game ever. The dude was using a long range homing weapon with +4 confusion. It was oh so very cheap of him. I can not believe it. At one point, I was standing on one side of the level, just dodging his shots. It was really very boring. I'm never playing that guy again.

Fo those who wonder, yeah, I beat him... just once. Then I left.

Go into the next round equipping powers that make you invisible

@VofEscaflowne I did, but it was still plain boring & overpowered. He had weapons near 300, I had one at 220. I like how Light vs Dark makes the chances more even. Now that's good balancing. There is no real pride in being an overpowered a$$h*le.

I used shields too.
Posted: 03/31/12, 05:31:55
Almost 11 hours, 41.8% completed, 90/120 treasures. And I can't stop playing!


Posted: 03/31/12, 06:49:25
@Guillaume what?! I wasn't speaking about you... at all.
Also, can't wait for tomorrow. T's'gonna be great!

I kind of thought you wouldn't really like this style of gameplay, considering you bashed on Harmony of Despair for its loot based equipment and replaying levels for better stuff.
Posted: 03/31/12, 14:38:06

I do dislike loot-based games usually. Either I'm being a blatant fanboy right now, or the cauldron system solved any problem I had with those games...
Posted: 03/31/12, 17:01:50

Pretty good! What chapter are you on right now?

I think the mix of weapon variety/power, fusing, and the adjustable risk/reward difficulty of the Fiend's Cauldron make for a very compelling system that works well with all those elements combined.
Posted: 03/31/12, 18:18:16

Oh yeah, I forgot to say: I'm just at chapter 11, haha. Gotta replay those levels and get the achievements! I wanna see that picture!

And hey, that's one thing I'd love "achievements" to steal from this game: each one unlocks some reward in-game, and reveals a piece of a picture. Then they'd be worthwhile.
Posted: 03/31/12, 20:10:27

I'm not sure if a picture is a worthwhile reward but it's better than nothing I suppose They're still fun to complete though!
Posted: 03/31/12, 23:13:09

In addition to the individual rewards each achievement yields? Hell yeah it's worthwhile!
Posted: 04/01/12, 07:24:23

Yeah, those can be good I suppose though I've yet to pull off any that are really hard so I haven't gotten anything great from them

(damn you April Fools!)
