This comprehensive guide presents a detailed walkthrough and strategic approach to triumph over Nifa’s First Mission, with the gameplay set to normal difficulty.
In this section, the game acquaints you with the controls following a brief exposition. Proceed to the right until Nifa alerts you about encountering your first monster, a slime. After successfully defeating the initial slime, you will obtain a life shard, which serves to restore your health. Following this, there is further exposition, and you will face more slime adversaries until you encounter Frea. Once Frea’s exposition concludes, she will entrust you with seven Lilna flowers. Subsequently, you are assigned the task, by Frea, to rescue fellow soldiers and the princess. It is worth noting that upon restarting the game, you will be compelled to redo this portion.
Note: Lilna flowers can be obtained either within specific levels or as rewards for saving fellow soldiers.
- Health – Maximum Hit Points (Max HP)
- Attack – Attack Power (ATK)
- Technical – Technical Proficiency (TEC)
- Defense – Defense Strength (DEF)
- Mobility – Agility and Movement Capability (LEG)
- Restoration – Recovery Efficiency (REC)
Once the game title disappears, proceed towards the statue. The statue serves as a checkpoint where you can save your progress and upgrade your character’s statistics. By increasing your stats sufficiently, you will unlock new abilities. To enhance your attack power, use three of the seven flowers provided. For increasing defense and technical skills, use two flowers each.
Afterward, continue moving to the right until you come across a pitfall. In the lower section, you will encounter the second monster, a wasp. Eliminate any monsters that hinder your path as you progress to the right, until you reach the surface area again. Along the way, be sure to collect the two Lilna flowers that you can reach with a single jump. Once you’ve collected these flowers, be prepared to face two giant slimes and rescue your first captured comrade.
Here are the locations of the flowers:
- Flower #1: Found in the first area.
- Flower #2: Located in the second area before the pitfall.
- Flower #3: Placed in the second area, beyond Flower #2; acquiring it requires the use of a dash and double jump.
- Flower #4: In the pitfall area, reachable with a double jump.
- Flower #5: Also in the pitfall area, collectible after navigating through the hazards.
- Flower #6: Located in the final area, accessible with a double jump.
Go back to Black Gate to obtain six flowers for the statue. Enhance attack twice, technical abilities twice, and recovery capabilities twice.
This task is relatively straightforward. In the initial section, you’ll come across a spike wall. Within the second area, there will be two such walls. Afterwards, you’ll face the third foe, a humpbacked orc. To succeed, you must carefully time your actions, either by crouching or blocking his projectiles while striking the wall. Subsequently, he will flee towards the second wall after destroying the first one. Following that encounter, you’ll face your second boss, an orc. Defeat him and rescue your comrade.
No wild flowers are available in this context.
Upon entering the initial zone, the boss will launch a spike wall in your direction before escaping. Proceed to confront the fourth monster, a male dryad, as you venture towards the statue located in the second area. Continue onward to the third area, where the boss will hurl two boulders at you. Once you reach the fourth area, you must be nimble to navigate through the gaps in the floor. If you are proficient enough, you can avoid falling into them. Subsequently, you will face the boss, after dealing with a humpbacked orc that shoots projectiles at you. Additionally, interact with the statue to allocate eight out of nine flowers to enhance your attack and defense attributes by four each.
Please note that I neglected to save prior to confronting the boss, thus depleting that number of flowers. Consequently, I respawned at the temple with 17 flowers.
- Flower #1: Accessible within the first area through jumping.
- Flower #2: Accessible within the second area by jumping down from the platform beneath the statue.
- Flower #3: Located in the third area, which requires dashing and double jumping.
- Flower #4: Positioned in the fourth area on a platform accessible via a wall platform.
- Flower #5: Found in the fourth area on a platform reached by jumping down from the rock floor.
- Flower #6: Situated in the fourth area, reachable from location #5.
- Flower #7: Located in the fourth area, requiring a double jump.
Additional Comrade Locations:
- Comrade #1: Found in the first area, requiring a double jump.
- Comrade #2: Ascend the upward platform to the left of the statue, leading to a room where you must defeat two dryads and two wasp hives.
Mt. Hydeguld: Foot
Upon embarking into this level’s first area, you will soon confront the fifth formidable creature, known as the hellhound. Subsequently, brace yourself for a challenge as you encounter two rolling spike walls. The second area may deceive you, presenting itself as a dead end; however, to proceed, you must patiently wait at the farthest right part of that area. Progress to the left until you perceive wall platforms, which will grant you access to the third area. It is advisable to save your progress at the second statue upon reaching this stage.
Once you find yourself in the fourth area, you will come face-to-face with the sixth adversary, a baby angel. Negotiating the fifth area will require you to navigate skillfully through a hopscotch-like path. The ultimate showdown with the boss awaits you in the room adjacent to the third statue. To enhance your technical prowess and defense capabilities, it is recommended to implement a two-tiered strategy.
For your convenience, I’ve also compiled the locations of the flowers in this level:
- Flower #1: Third area, situated on a platform.
- Flower #2: Fourth area, resting on a platform.
- Flower #3: Fifth area, accessible by jumping down to a platform.
- Flower #4: Sixth area, found on the left platform.
- Flower #5: Sixth area, located on the right platform.
Mt. Hydeguld: Summit
Upon spawning on this level, the boss will take action by destroying the bridge, causing you to fall into the second area. In this area, you will face the seventh monster, a legless skeleton. To enhance your health and attack power, interact with the statue twice. Beyond this point, you will unexpectedly encounter a boss, which is positioned too early in the level.
As you progress to the third area, you will confront a spore-launching monster. Subsequently, the area following the second statue involves a fairy guiding you through a dark environment until you reach the end of the level. Throughout this area, you will also encounter the eighth monster, a ghost.
Locations of flowers:
- Flower #1: First area after the bridge destruction.
- Flower #2: First area on the other side of the destroyed bridge.
- Flower #3: Second area, on top of a mushroom.
- Flower #4: Third area, on a platform.
- Flower #5: Third area, on another platform.
- Flower #6: Fifth area, easily noticeable.
- Flower #1: First zone necessitates utilizing the double jump ability.
- Comrade #1: In the second region, situated on the left floor platform.
