Thanks. Done the Earth Temple and got the ring. Left temple went left and used power to go up glowing stars to a signpost which points left to "The Wall" and right to bosco forest. In that "The Wall" area there is a well, down which is three doors with shapes (star, sun, moon), and three shops one of which you can buy a sword (masamune). Then there is an exit in the background with an arrow above it which leads to a greyer area with two tree stumps and with a high jump on first screen. There doesn't appear to be anywhere else to go, have been right back to the start and gone through each map.
Okay. I assume you're playing the full game, I don't think the demo has this part. I know exactly where you are!
Have you got the fireball teleport thing yet?
Once you get it, you have to go back and go through all the areas that were blocked by the two bars before.
You will find a room where a dragon gives you tasks to complete.
I am stuck here!
I'm not stuck because I don't know what to do, I'm stuck because the difficulty suddenly rose astronomically!
It's hard as fuck! I can get through the first task and the one where you have to go to bubble form and float around catching the gems.
After that, you have to complete a section without using special weapons and it's just fuckin' frustrating as all Hell!
You hold down and bounce across the bad guys, then you have to do the double jump/sword up thing as well and it becomes a tedious
chore! I'll eventually get through it though!
The thing about this game is, you can get to many places but if you don't have the special abilities, you can't explore those places in full.
For underwater, you need the bubble transform so you can go to the top and find various items. For many places with the two silver bars
blocking your path, you need the fire teleport. Also, the big tall wall that is made of "very dry wood" can be burned down with a fireball.
Of course, I assume you have the double jump/upward sword swing. That allows you to get to some high places you couldn't get to
before as well. I hope this helps!
I love how this game links all the areas together with secret passageways that can be navigated once you get power-ups as well!
It's just how WBIMW is! This game is really ending up being one of my most favorite games of the year!
I have been waiting for MONSTER BOY but the devs have taken too long and have become sidetracked on everything but the
actual game it's self it seems - Hyping it up for consoles/ignoring PC users/etc. I hope it's good but I'm sick of waiting!
AGGELOS is better than THE DRAGON'S TRAP remake as well! It's a better game all around and that's really saying something,
considering DRAGON'S TRAP is a 1:1 remake of the original but with new graphics and a few tweaked elements.
I was never a huge DT fan anyhow, I love Wonderboy (Arcade original), Wonderboy in Monsterland (SMS,C=64,ETC.) and
Wonderboy in Monster World. I also love Wonderboy IV (I think?) which is the one where you're a girl. That game rocks!
It's a great time to be a WONDERBOY fan! There's even another game, WONDERBOY RETURNS, which I have but it's just average.
AGGELOS is turning out to be one of my favorites!!!
I WISH THE DEVS WOULD SELL IT ON ITCH.IO THOUGH!!!
You can't access the upper level of the library from the inside. You need to enter through a window on the roof. Generally if the game is too hard it's because you don't have the right equipment for it. Going in the Volcano area without the dragon sword and the armor, you'll get pulverized in no time. There are three hints for the dragon sword: one is near the save point, the others are further down on your way to the fire temple. You need to speak to one of the monkeys to know the path to out of the labyrinth in the volcano.
