Current Mission - Defeat Olrox

Boss - Commander Olrox

Remember Brauner? Meet Mk. II. Olrox does fight very similarly to Brauner; including the un-blockable or blockable switch-a-roo so the same deal applies. Dodge the first and then react. Olrox follows his un-blockable with a second unblockable though so keep dodging!

Olrox will also throw his dual blades, foreshadowed by a line such as ‘The Dark Lady will be pleased…’ Unfortunately you can’t return these so dodge to the side and lay in to the brute. Olrox will also go into a flurry of teleports, this will end up in front of you and either culminates in a blockable swipe, or un-blockable, so the usual tactics of dodge then decide is relevant here.

The crucial thing in this fight is to move; this guy can close a gap and slice your face with formidable speed so go for a few hits then dodge, few hits then dodge, and of course stop attacking if he blocks.

When his health gets low the vampire Commander will start regaining his health from poor victims of iron maiden deaths around the arena. Bat the boss away and then destroy the cadaver inside, eventually Mr. Fangs will run out of sources to recharge and you’re free to finish him off.

Puzzle - The Bloody Key

Thankfully Olrox died right where we needed some blood to trail between some cups! This puzzle can be a bit tricky as some of the timing is incredibly tight.

The diagram above shows the route you need to take through the maze, remember to push the stick into the corners as you get to the corner, almost as if you were playing Pac Man, as this is quicker than waiting to be at the corner before moving round. With the puzzle solved, run through the exit to end the level.


Objective: Finish the level after keeping the focus meter at its maximum value for 60 seconds

Lower the difficulty. Now, attack Olrox with some varied attacks to raise the focus meter, once it’s up you need to keep it up so focus on keeping away from Olrox, avoiding anything he tries to throw at you.

To keep the bar up you’ll also need to poke him every now and again but most importantly, avoid. Oh and don’t die afterwards else it will all be for naught, that’s why we brought the difficulty down…
