Alundra 2

Hey there folks, today we're kicking off a brand new let's play: Alundra 2! I'm gonna make sure to prove to you guys why it's worth playing even if it's very different to the original game! :)

For those who don't know, Alundra 2 is a 3D action adventure game for PS1 and is know for having loads of high difficulty sections, including hard bosses, tricky navigation and mind-numbing puzzles :s. Just like the original in that sense ha.

Of course, I didn't make the game. The companies involved are: Activision (2 LPs in a row by these guys!), Contrail and Matrix Software :).

Here's the opening for you:


Along with a link to the playlist on Youtube:

Thanks for watching! I'm looking forward to making a start on this one since there's so much nostalgia involved! Hopefully I do it justice :s. See you around for the start! :)

P.S. I tried to get a border on the go but as you'll see, there's no sort of central screen for this game lol. It moves a a lot and makes things awkward for borders unless you keep the actual screen tiny. This is the same reason I couldn't go full screen after the opening video. I think you'll see what I mean when we get going next time.

Anyways, enough about that! See you around for the proper start! :)

Episode 1 - Flint And The Mechanical Bird


Hey there folks, it's time to start Alundra 2! We're kicking things off with the first dungeon: the airship! Honestly, it's not the most exciting area in the world but it's just a tutorial place so it doesn't take too long.

It does however introduce us to 4 characters that we'll be seeing a lot of throughout the game: Flint (our main protagonist), Zeppo (the pirate father), Ruby (Zeppo's spoilt princess daughter) and Albert (Zeppo's geeky son).

In fact, we have our first boss too!

------------------------------------------

Zeppo Strategy:

- Jump over his fire attacks.
- Slash straight after he misses.
- Remember that he has barely any health so this'll be a quickie.

------------------------------------------

Finally, we crash land over by Paco Village! Look out for the kindly mother with a wonky eye throughout the cutscene. We shouldn't laugh but...sometimes it can't be helped :s.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 2 - Relaxing In Paco Village


Hey there folks, let's have a quick look around Paco Village, shall we? It's such a nice, peaceful village with some great stuff in the shop. Worth saving up for that sword!

We also head through Kindra Forest, which is an easy dungeon area to start us off with. Plenty of help from old man Prunewell too, in case you would get stuck.

Thanks for watching! We'll be taking on Mt Sparrowhawk next time which has a pretty tricky element to it :).

I was wondering why the monkeys had pants on, it all makes sense now. :LOL:

BTW, I think there was a healing spot in the house with the bull.

:lew: You were right! We'll catch it in episode 4 lol. Thanks for pointing it out!

---------------------------------

Episode 3 - One Purrfect Afternoon


Hey there folks, today we head off to Mt Sparrowhawk to see if we can find proof of Baron Diaz being involved with the pirates!

It's only a short dungeon and there are no real problems to speak of but there is a boss at the end that can cause a bit of trouble...

---------------------------------

Pandora Strategy:

- Attack from in front when she runs in circles. This can be a bit tricky to time.
- After you hit her, wait for her to charge and then quickly attack.
- When she starts breathing fire from a corner, go to the opposite corner to dodge.
- After this, she will charge at you so dodge and quickly attack like before.

---------------------------------

There seems to be something going on back at Paco Village. More on that next time!

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 4 - There's Sand On My Boots!


Hey peoples, today we're heading on over to Paco Village to see what all the fuss is about!

We also go to Tortuga Beach to attack the birds and other local wildlife. Seriously though, those birds can be such a pain! Just a bit of patience...

Finally, we make it to Toroledo! More on that next time!

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 5 - Happily Married In Toroledo


Hey there peoples, we've reached the second town of the game! Toroledo is just as relaxing but is a wee bit bigger and full of people with a love for bulls; they may just love them that bit too much...

We also learn a new move that will be really helpful shortly :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for our first complicated dungeon! The beginners' gloves are off now ;).

Episode 6 - Holy Cow!


Hey folks, today we're heading off to that area that we've been trying to reach for a while now: Mithra Valley! Specifically, the Ox Tank dungeon that is our first sign of tough things to come.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

This game was great, spent so many time collecting darts for that mini game
I agree! That darts minigame is so tough lmao. It's coming up soon actually :').

P.S. I love your music :s

-------------------------------------

Episode 7 - Mad Cow Disease


Hey folks, today we take on Mutox the bull! I guess he's the one behind the bombings etc but he does have that key on his back...where've we seen that before?

-------------------------------------

Mutox Strategy:

- Avoid his punches by always being on the run and keeping your distance.
- When he punches the boulder, avoid it until it hits Mutox.
- Do the same in phase 2, when he rolls around as a ball. Avoid him by running in slow circles.
- Attack when he's dizzy (my preference is a combo attack).
- Rinse and repeat :).

-------------------------------------

So with that, the Ox Tank is done! We head on back to Toroledo for a sec but only to find that Pierre (the gambling husband) has headed off to the Howling Cave. What's going on with him now??? So much trouble ;).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 8 - Zach's Dead Eye


Hey there folks, today we check out the mini-dungeon that is the Howling Cave! It's tiny. It's simple. It's got a local psychotic. What more do you want?

We also head on over to Deadeye Zach's to play some darts. This one isn't fun lmao. The colours actually remind me of the bombchu minigame in Ocarina of Time. Sorta. Kinda. If you want everything out of the game though, you'll need to play a tonne of this and farm for darts. More on that in the vid :).

Finally, we make a start on the biggest and hardest dungeon we've encountered so far: Dun Webb! We'll be here a bit longer yet :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for more webbery! :)

Episode 9 - That's It! I'm Dun!


Hey peoples, Dun Webb is ever bigger than what we've seen so far so here's a chunk more of it! We're actually done with the dungeon itself now so next time...we've got the big baddy of the place!

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)
