New Enemy - Zombies

$$$item 3597

Head to the left of the area and drop off onto the ledge follow it round and you’ll soon pull back up on top. Look forward; time to do an epic Dashing Double Jump to hook point, this just feels great doing it. Get ready and… GO GO GO!

Awesome wasn’t it? Well get ready to curse because a Chupacabras has got its tiny eyes on your prizes and it’s set up a puzzle to test you getting them back…

Puzzle - Chupacabras Cage

The idea here is to power and angle lights at the creature’s cage, all the while battling off the undead. Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as it first seems. You need at least one crystal shard; if you are missing one they are all over this area.

Follow the path right; note the see the glowing pylon? There is a glowing wall nearby, insert the crystal shard into this and you’ll see the ground glow. We’ll call this track 1. Use Gabriel’s whip to move the pylon up as far as it will go and then round to the left to the end of the track. Now rotate it to blast the light into the cage.

Whip the pylon back down as far as it will go to the other end of the track. Move to the left and you’ll find another conductor pylon. The power here is fried to instead whip the pylon all the way right, then rotate pylon 1 so it is aimed at pylon 2, and then rotate pylon 2 to aim light at the cage.

Now retrieve the crystal shard, run to the left and up and you’ll find track 3. Insert the crystal into the glowing slot here, and whip the pylon to the bottom of its track, make sure you whip pylon 2 to the left as well, now aim the light from pylon 3 at pylon 2, then rotate pylon 2 so it is aimed at the cage.

Run in, grab the Chupacabras, and take your powers back. Puzzle Solved!

Run forward and up the stairs. You’ll be ambushed by a lot of zombies, and to open the door you need to punch the two gongs in quick succession.

Leap over the zombies to the magic refill and top up, let the horde amble towards you and once they are all a fair distance from the gongs, leap over of dash through them, punch the right, shadow dash to the left and punch this gong. Head through the open door ahead.


Objective: Finish the level after killing 20 Zombies in a single aerial sequence

At the very end of the level, at the gong puzzle, there are loads of zombies that spawn. Lure them towards the back of the stage as before, but rather than avoiding them use a rising attack, and another, then wail on the zombies you’ve picked up with midair direct attacks.

Once these are dead use a mid-air block + wide punch to draw more zombies up to you and then destroy these as well. If you don’t find the zombies dying quick enough, use shadow magic to speed up their expiry.
