Yes, there is one section of the game where this is required, and yet the game never says that fast-climbing is possible or how to do it. Took me twenty minutes to give up and hit GameFAQs for the answer. This must have been like the Carnival Zone Barrel in Sonic 3 back in the day...
Someone or a post give you that info at the first village.
I think I screwed myself over, though. There is a spot in the volcano where you're supposed to throw your Pepelago into a hole, but I got it to work once and never again. As if it's only allowed once. Now I can't do anything, not even retrace my steps.
Huh? It's definitely allowed more than once. Maybe you're doing it wrong. I remember throwing being weird, like there is something you can do that seems like it is throwing, but isn't, and then the real throwing is using the A button or something? I forget.
The Pepelago got properly stuck in that hole and then got shot up, but I wasn't on it. Now, every time I try it, it seems to not stick in the crater. It kinda just goes through. And I'm throwing it properly, using A.
I started Monster World IV a few hours ago; I only played for a few minutes, but I like this game's controls much more than Wonder Boy in Monster Land's. I love that you can attack upward and downward while in mid-air; I could defeat a lot of enemies with ease by downward-thrusting them like as if using a pogo stick. It's much better than the clunky attack mechanics Monster Land used.
Thanks to this I downloaded it on the 360. I've only got to play about 30 minutes so far, but I like what I've played. I'm only to where the spikes start popping out in the first tower. Hopefully I'll get some more time on it over the weekend.
D'awwwwwww, awesome ending. What a great game. The last dungeon really showcased the enemy variety, and looking back, I really dig how each dungeon played differently.
Something was up with my game last night. I don't know if it was a bug, or I had mistakingly unequipped my good sword, or what, but enemies would take forever to kill. I thought this was normal and that the difficulty had simply been bumped up, but tonight they were dispatched as easily as they should have been. It was much easier.
