so i just beaten level 3, my hands are still shaking from the many clutch pulls i did duking all the gold watchers and traps when i use my ‘boost’ ability and i think i may found some sort of way to be able to make it easiler to beat the level for those that may be struggling. Please read on and if my advice is useful please tell me 🙂
This guide will be simple and brief.
1) Try to balance out running around and stopping in a corner of one of the big rooms with funiture inside.
when you start out try to collect some crystals near you and try to keep running and turn if you can hear the gold watchers behind you and if you can find yourself in a big room go to a corner and turn around with middle mouse and try to get them inside with you and then turn around again with middle mouse and then make your way around them and run away with the boost and teleport past any gold watchers in your way.
Tip: if you have gold watchers to your far left and right you can look the other way slightly to stop one and make the other move then look back to the center between both, this helps make it easiler to get the stragglers far off or the gold watchers at another angle closer to you and then make your way around.
2) Keep in mind of the timing of the spikes and have clear view points of axe traps too.
when you are running around and you keep getting killed by traps, you will need to hear when the spikes traps go off and then run, (there is a sound just before they rise indicating to you when you have to stop for a small moment.)
The axe traps can be dodged around if you see them swing to their fullest and then run past, if you are running past 2 which you would be after running past the first one go to the opposite side of where the next axe will be swinging making it easy to get by them without getting hit. It is more easy if you have a clear view of them from a distance
3) Grab as much crystals as you can anywhere!
Basically just grab as much and go to the next area, you don’t want to have to go all the way back just to get that one crystal which could potentially cause you to lose a life.
4) Use powers wisely if must be
if you see a stun, don’t use it yet unless their are lots of easy crystals around to pick up or you are being surrounded badly and need to use it.
The red crystals can be picked up at anytime so you know where to run in hallways or room to avoid the most amount of gold watchers and know where they are flanking you from.
Now after getting the last crystal malak will appear and chase you actively and the gold watchers will still be around, just run away untill you find the ring alter and bypass all the gold watchers waiting for you there and grab it.
Once you are outside make a right and open the first gate you will approach too and then after you can either run towards the gate from where you entered in the begninnig (A gold watcher will be there so teleport right after opening) OR you can go to the far corner of the open space and get every gold watcher closer to you then quickly duke around them and make it safetly to the gate.
After opening the gate… GET THE HELL OUT! and use all your boost to make it to the portal and around the gold watchers surrounding the front of the portal, you really want to make sure that you go around them and towards the backside of the portal to avoid death and if you were on only one life at the time, a game over screen.
I’m hoping that this will be useful to anyone out there stuck on deadly decadence and if you got any questions try to ask me and maybe i could help you get an answer.
The best tip is too just keep trying and don’t give up, because sooner or later you will have that one game where you start to beat your record of crystals and with more lives to spare and sooner then you would think, finally beat that level that you first thought you would never be able to do.
best of luck to you all
