    100% Purify Beauty on Normal difficulty

    General tips:
    Spam A
    Forget Octo-lock
    Go for smaller enemies first
    Don't be afraid to take some hits, killing enemies is more important and theres a bit of health on the level.

    USE A CONTROLLER
    *It's worth pausing and checking your progress against this guide

    Edit:
    It's worth noting that in the first section you should make sure that each plant has finished shooting ALL of its birds. There's a couple that shoot about 8 birds, and if you accidentally shoot the plant before they've all come out then it will cancel the rest and you'll lose your 100%

    Wave 1-1:
    By far the hardest section, when the plants shoot loads of birds straight up do not use a bomb and be very quick. Make sure you hit the plants twice, its easy to think you have and you miss one.

    Plants

    Health Orb = 42%

    Butterfly = 45%
    Butterfly = 48%
    Butterfly x 2 = 54%

    Health Orb

    THIS BIT!!
    SHOOT BIRDS THEN PLANTS DO NOT USE A BOMB

    Plants firing birds x 2
    Plant shooting x 1
    Plant firing birds x 1
    Plant shooting x 1

    Health orb = 80%

    Health

    Final butterfly = 95%
    Final birds = 100%

    Wave 1-2:
    Worm x 1
    Flying thing

    Health orb = 13%

    Worm x 1
    Flying thing

    1st tunnel = 31%

    Red thing
    Worm

    Bomb Orb = 40%

    2nd tunnel
    Worms x2
    flying things

    Health orb = 55%

    Worm
    Spinning things

    Health Orb = 72%

    Worms x 2
    Flying things

    Health Orb = 91%

    Very quick flying things x 2

    Wave 1-3:
    Flying things

    Bomb Orb = 34%

    Flying shooting things

    Health Orb = 53%

    Flying things

    Health Orb = 100%

    Wave 1-4:
    Just use purple tracer fire on first bit

    1st change = 30%

    Moves back = 53%

    2nd change = 90%

    Finish her!! = 100%

    Even knowing all of the above this was very hard to unlock in one playthrough.
    Learn each section, hope and pray.

    Hope this guide helps, any questions or complaints just let me know.

    Good luck!!

    Morpheus414I wanted to let everyone know(and I've also posted this on the other 100% guides) that Child of Eden(at some point) has been updated, and it NOW shows Purification progress for each area!! So in addition to using these guide to help you, instead of guessing and thinking about a certain percentage, you'll know FULL well whether you've completely cleared that area or not! Spread the word!! smile

    This is are excellent guide for this level, for the Gold Star (100% + 800k) rank you definitely need some practice, but you can get the 100% on your first try. Just follow the video, this is very detailed and useful guide.
