On Continued Evolution

One more of these, then I think we’ll do something else.

Pretend there’s a plot

On Continued Evolution
Get the Amulet, defeat the bad guy. The first half is in the time travel area…

On Continued Evolution
And the second half is in a different area. I’m pretty sure this is the wrong choice, but it’s the one I made.

A few UI tweaks later, and you’re playing something that looks suspiciously like Diablo.

On Continued Evolution
It wouldn’t be a compete simulation without loot. Unfortunately, nothing you can pick up has any effect on your character.

One boss and one town portal later, the second half of the amulet is acquired.

I didn’t feel like coming up with another synonym for Final Fantasy

On Continued Evolution
The evil force reveals his name, and it’s time for a boss fight. Sadly, you can’t win this one, and after a certain point he’ll spam an attack that gets stronger each time he uses it.

After which Kaeris follows in the footsteps of her namesake. It’s hard to call this a surprise in any way.

On Continued Evolution
You do get to go back to the fight with Kaeris’s heal ability, and a little bonus.

This has an animation that is about as over-the top as one would expect from a summon. It also does enough damage to finish the fight in one hit.

But we can’t end there, so there’s one more thing to do.

The Final Battle

On Continued Evolution
You have to take an airship the the final boss, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to clean up anything you might have missed from earlier in the game. In particular, you have bombs and can open passages in the Zelda dungeon.

The first form is pretty straightforward. Avoid the bad stuff, beat on the hands. When they’re gone, run around behind and beat on the core.

On Continued Evolution
Then get your Ganon shoes on, because you have to reflect his projectiles back to finish him off. There are two colors, and you can only reflect one of them, so I took a few hits figuring that out.

Actually, I was pretty bad at that fight all around, but a victory is a victory.

That’s it for Evoland. I wasn’t terribly completionist, and there are a both stars and cards to collect, but I can do without. Maybe I’ll try this for something else later.
