The path that we take through the game is the one we found the easiest to do. As it’s an open game (in terms of where you can go at what point); we’re going to cover each area in general and allow you to actually tackle them in any order you choose.
Simply click on the area you’re on for the help needed to get through, find all the main items and beat the boss(es) at the end. We won’t spoil everything for you (or cover every single minor item location); but you’ll certainly feel much more confident with our help to hand for each area. Of that we’re sure.
