7. Bard's Gold WORLD 1 - Dungeon

WORLD 1 - Dungeon

So you're new to the game you say? Well you better know what buttons do what!

TRY using the cn_dpad to move Bard instead of the cn_LS. It's slightly more controllable.

BUTTONFUNCTION
cn_LSl cn_LSrMoves Bard Left / Right
cn_LSuBuys item in Reaper Shop (Bard must first move underneath item)
cn_RSuScouts upwards [hold]
cn_RSdScouts downwards [hold]
cn_XAttack / Fire
cn_ASingle Jump
cn_Acn_ADouble Jump (Second jump can be delayed as long as you're in the air even if you're free falling far below)

Ok, now back to the action!

Keep a lookout for Pots. They hide Gems and there's an achievement for destroying 200 of them! Get cracking at the smashing!

POTS

LEVEL 2

Level 2 has two unique and new features. The SHOP & your first attempt to fight a MINI-BOSS.

SHOP. The shop is a place where you can buy items to help you and make catching that pesky Goblin who stole you're gold all the easier! See the Inventory ITEMS page for information about the individual items. You use Gems to purchase items with unique abilities. But who wants to pay full price?!? NO ONE PAYS RETAIL! Before entering the Shop attack the SIGN for about 5-10 seconds until it flashes GREEN. This indicates you have activated the SALE aspect of the shop and discounted all items by 10 Gems.

MINI-BOSS. The Blood Ghost. On ALL Variants of Level 2, at the level start "I feel an evil presence" and a Bard's ICON should appear at the upper top left of your screen. This indicates this is a Blood Ghost level. However CHARLIE Variant and at random other times, this message does not seem to appear at the start but there will still be a Blood Ghost if you fulfill requirements. If you miss the Blood Ghost in Level 2, don't worry as there is one more potential Blood Ghost to spawn on Level 5. In order to get the Blood Ghost to spawn though, you need to locate all the Hidden items in the level. You don't have to physically grab them all, just attack every GLIMMER SPARKLE in the level and the Blood Ghost will spawn. Either follow the Map for your Variant or use the Magic Glasses and look for the GLIMMER SPARKLES. Once you find the last Treasure (including the hidden Map piece) the Blood Ghost will spawn and homing beacon towards you. He can pass through objects & walls. Once you have spammed enough damage into him and he dies you will unlock an achievement!

LEVEL 3

Level 3 has the first of a 2 new types of Secret. The first is the Secret Door. With the Magic Glasses on, it is marked just like any other Secrets with the GLIMMER SPARKLE. There are a handful of Secret Doors throughout the game. The LEVEL 3 Secret Door is unique and is in ALL VARIANTS (just in a different location). You find a Secret Door the same way you do any other Secret in the game. You ATTACK it! SPAM that cn_X 5 times into the GLIMMER SPARKLE and the Secret Door will appear. This Secret Door contains a BONUS room. Flamy's Treasure Room. You face your second Mini-Boss FLAMY at the top of the room. The timer stands still while in this room so don't rush too fast. Once you defeat Flamy and all his minions, there is the second new Secret type, the Secret Ledge to find on the top left of the Treasure Room. Secret Ledges are just like the Secret Doors. Attack it 5 times and it will appear. Once the Secret Ledge appears, jump onto it and grab the Magic Glasses. These are SPECIAL Magic Glasses. They make a Magic BLUE Key appear on the upper right of the room. Regular Magic Glasses do not make this Key appear. Grab the Magic Glasses.

LEVEL 4

Level 4 has a new Secret Door that appears in ALL VARIANTS. This is the Tower of Patience Secret Door. Find it as you would all other Secrets. When you enter this door you will immediately unlock:

a TOWER!?

Discover tower of patience

a TOWER!?
3 guidesOffline Game ModeSingle Player

Inside this tower there are no enemies, the Level timer is on pause and there is nothing that can physically damage you. The bouncing purple fire looking things only serve to push you and make you fall down the tower and infuriate you. It is a little tricky to make it up to the top and you may be tempted to take the Exit door back to the main level if you're struggling. However, you must climb all the way to the top of the Tower of Patience at least once. Because at the very top is a PURPLE Treasure Chest and if it is your first time looting this chest you will obtain the Extra Time Skill Book. PROGRESS: Bookworm (3/15)

BOOKWORM VIDEO

This achievement a TOWER!? can be glitchy also. Some have reported (and I have experienced it on a bot when creating guides) that it does not unlock here and requires both Patience areas to be entered. The Tower of Patience described here and the Temple of Patience found in World 2. If the achievement does not pop here simply make an extra effort to hunt down the Temple of Patience outlined later in World 2. Once you enter that one, the achievement will unlock.

If you missed the Blood Ghost achievement on Level 2, Level 5 is your second opportunity to make him spawn and punish him with your blades for the achievement. Simply uncover all the hidden items in the level and he'll spawn just as outlined previously in Level 2's section.
