Were you looking for the older version of Fierce Tales?
Fierce Tales is an RPG in which you play as a goblin. The main goal is to beat many bosses, which are wrecking havoc for a currently unknown reason. The player has to complete quests too. Fortunately, they have access to a large cast of allies to help them. The many enemies you fight in the game can also be tamed to help you even further. It has a rather long story split into 3 "acts".
The game begins with a menu that asks you to choose a grey goblin's class and then to name the goblin. This goblin is the player character in this game.
After this, a cutscene plays. The goblin you play as is seen on a pirate ship along with other grey goblins. Some goblins are speaking about exiling the player because he isn't useful and is generally weak. Their captain agrees with them and throw you into the water.
Your character wakes up on a beach right next to a grassy area named "Begaini Fields". The player is then told to go to a farm house, where they will meet Carapar, who is getting attacked by a bunch of red, blue and green goblin. You must defeat them. Carapar will thank you for saving him and decides to help the goblin learn how things work, and the two become friends.
Carapar then introduces them to a mechanical, underground base, where the goblin meets various robots, such as nurses, exploration robots and security guards. He tells them the base was made to help monsters in danger and shelter them from the "bosses". The ninja then gives the Goblin a tour around the diverse terrariums, some of which are jungles, others are volcanic, ect. They then bump into Chicken Engineer, another member of the base and one of Carapar's friends. After a short discussion, Chicken Engineer joins the "team".
Mushrooms and Blobs
Chicken Engineer then shows Carapar the next mission; they must defeat "Jimbly the Giant Shroom" because it is causing havoc in the Begaini Farms. The team hurries to that location, having to beat various monsters in the way. Once they get there, they find Jimbly and fight him. The team ultimately defeats the giant mushroom, who then retreats. They then go back to the base to announce to the rest of the base that they defeated one of the bosses.
After that, various missions play in Begaini Fields, as well as a new area, the Kotistia Jungle and it's shore, which are mostly calm in that moment. Once the player gets a rescue mission, it will automatically be about rescuing Angrie. The player will also automatically get the mission after 10 missions. Once they rescue Angrie, Angrie thanks them and as they bring it to the base, Angrie becomes friends with the team. The player now has Angrie on the team.
Queen of Cyberlith
After the player completes around three missions after unlocking Angrie, the base gets an emergency call. Guest, one of the stronger members of the base, has been kidnapped by a certain "Virinus"! Carapar explains to the player that Virinus is an alien who came to the planet and corrupted part of the Kotistia Jungle with a monolith, turning everything in that part of the jungle into robots who work for her. She is considered a major threat. The team quickly decide to stop her antics. They travel through the jungle until they reach the roboticised area.
However, Virinus is nowhere in sight. The player must scout the area to find where she could be hiding. Eventually, the goblin finds an opening to the inside of a giant computer. The alien, however, notices them and starts sending waves of enemies. Despite this, the team defeats the enemies, which makes her angry. However, the team must still travel through the computer to enter her control room. Virinus doesn't settles things peacefully, so she fights them.
While she puts up an impressive fight, she is still beaten. She flees, but not before saying she'll come back later. The team then remembers; what happened to Guest? Chicken Engineer then hears banging from a wall. He presses the wall and Guest comes out of it. The team supports Guest and they bring him back to the base. The player can now have Guest as an ally.
After a few more missions, a dragon with an accent named Pokeman warns the team that it's not looking good in the Forseth Desert; it's king, Zeth the Sand Shark, has been forcing the local creatures to mine some specific ores. These ores are known because they can make dangerous explosives, and Pokeman suspects Zeth might try attacking one of the areas nearing the desert. Carapar says they'll come and then tells Goblin that Pokeman is a scout for the base. He also warns him to not make any puns near him.
When the player and his helpers reach the Forseth Desert, Pokeman is there. He joins the team and can be selected as an Helper. Goblin must reach a Pyramid in the middle of the desert, since that's where Zeth lives. The area has few enemies, but there's damaging cactuses around the area, it is quite long, and the enemies are either rather strong or appear in groups.
The team finally reaches the pyramid. When they enter it, Zeth is waiting there, with many more creatures of the area placing red gems on a pile. Pokeman orders Zeth to tell them what he's planning to do, but the shark says that he can't say that. Carapar tells him they don't want to use ways they don't want to use to make him say, but Zeth says he doesn't wants to either. After they briefly stare at each other, a boss battle with the sand shark begins. He is fast and can deal a lot of damage, but tends to get confused after some of his attacks and is thus pretty vulnerable.
Once defeated, Zeth says that he's not allowed to say what he's doing, but orders the creatures to stop bringing him explosives. A demon with rocket launcher for hands then enters the base, and asks him to give him the stones he mined. Zeth refuses, saying he doesn't wants to cause the world pain, but the demon then says "you'll know what will happen if you don't...". Zeth panics and gives him the jewels. The demon then leaves, looking happy.
Back at the base, Carapar explains that the rocket demon is a dangerous individual named Kony. He is considered a major threat to what's left of the peace in the Fierce Tales world. He is building an army in order to rule the world, but with all the other bosses around, this would probably cause disastrous wars everywhere around the world. Kony himself is no pushover, either; he apparently hails from hell itself, althrough it's possible he might have been exiled from there.
A member of the base then sends the base a transmission; Searchie, an alien and cockatrice hybrid. He discovered a factory in a cold area named "Mechanarctica". Angrie says that it explains why the area is named Mechanarctica. He then asks Chicken if he knew about the factory; Chicken says he does, but that he didn't create it; so he only knows of it's existence, and not it's purpose. Pokeman suggests they investigate. Everyone agrees, except Carapar who stays behind for a few seconds. He calls Searchie and seems to whisper something to him, then comes with the group.
They arrive in the snowfield part of Mechanarctica. Searchie greets the team and then marks where the factory's entrance is in a map. The player is then free to travel through the snowfield and explore, althrough there are some monsters in the way.
Eventually, Goblin and the others reach the factory. The place seems to have been abandoned for years; decades, according to Chicken. Many places are frozen over, and some bugged logs can be accessed. What can be read from them implies it was used for freaky experiments; these are most likely true considering the presence of freaky Blob/Minion hybrids. The owners of the factories seem to have been a certain "Mr. Carpet" and a "Mr. Google". The logs get spookier the farther you go in the factory; Mr. Google apparently even got fused with one of his own experiments.
They reach the end of the factory, where they discover what might have frozen the factory; an enormous, floating ice blob with four melting eyes, each with a strange spinning symbol in them. Searchie is shocked; he then claims that it is the "Banafrit of Legends". Banafrit seems hostile and soons begin attacking the heroes by creating ice beams; they are forced to run around the factory while Banafrit chases after them, sometimes blocking thier path with ice spikes. Eventually, the team manages to knock out Banafrit, but not before it wakes up again; however, it goes back to the end of the factory. Searchie and Carapar says they've gone far enough, and everyone else agree and return to the base.
When the team return to the base, they find out it's under attack by some of Kony's troops! Thankfully, Goblin and friends arrived before they did damage, and forced them to retreat. Kony himself then comes in, boasting about how he's made powerful explosives using the crystals from Forseth, and that they can't get to him because he blocked the entrance with a locked door. He then says that he gave the key to "Lleh". Right before he leaves, however, Angrie asks him who did he give the key to. Kony says that he's not telling that. This leads to cricket sounds. When Kony leaves, Pokeman start laughing very hard, followed by Searchie and Carapar, while Goblin and Angrie look at them confused.
The group then enters the spooky Grimbo Woods. It is filled with spooky creatures such as Pumpkin Dragons and King Tail Crows. Even Carapar seems spooked by the place. They eventually reach a large temple, filled with gold; it has to be Lleh's temple. They also find many odd broken statues of a moth...
They go further in, and find out the place is filled with deadly puzzles. Eventually, they reach a hall with two doors; one is closed. The team tries to open the closed door to no avail; however, Angrie notices someone is in the room with an open door. The group enters the room and find a golden wyvern with large black eyes on a pile of gold coins. He quickly notices the group and roars at them, telling them to go away or he will beat them up. But the group doesn't back away: Searchie asks the wyvern, who turns out to be Lleh, for the key. Lleh claims there is no way he's giving the key to them, though, and begins swooping at them.
After a long and tiring fight versus the wyvern, it falls unconscious on it's gold pile; it must've been hurt! Guest, meanwhile, finds the key among the pile of gold. He and the others then get out of the temple with a little trouble, and after travelling through the spooky woods again, return to the main base to discuss how they will infiltrate Kony's fortress.
This is the main gameplay mode. The Goblin has to complete missions. Most of them involve beating a certain boss, but in others you must beat a certain number of enemies, rescue a creature or find an item. The player can choose many randomly-generated missions, which are of varying difficulty levels.
Once in the overworld, the player can move around and use their moves. They have to complete missions. There is no particular time to complete the missions as they can be done any time.
You can only get a Boss Mission after you beat the boss the Boss Mission involves. For example you cannot get Boss Missions in which you have to beat Jimbly, unless you already beat him.
This plays similary to Missions except you don't choose missions; you have to do all the missions in a set order. Some missions play differently each run; for example, in one run you may have to find an item in Begaini Fields while in another the mission might involve rescuing a certain creature. Most missions in the mode are boss missions, however. After defeating a Boss in story mode you will start getting boss missions of that boss in Missions.
This mode is identical to Mission mode, except instead of having pets and allies, you have to play with two other goblin players. There is a local and global multiplayer. In the Local multiplayer you can play with your friends. On the Wii U version the other players can choose thier class. You can play with up to five players. Global mode is pretty different; a server is made and up to ten (five in the 3DS version) players can randomly join the server. Goblins can even join during a round. The goal in Global multiplayer is always to beat a certain boss.
Battle Royale is an unique mode in which Goblins are put in an arena and must fight each other. Up to 5 players can fight each other on the 3DS version, 10 on the Wii U version and a whooping 30 on the PC version. There isn't a reward for fighting and is overall a mode to test skills.
An important part of gameplay are classes. The player can choose between seven classes for the goblin at the start of a new game. Each class has ten moves, which are usually quite diverse. You can upgrade the moves to make them stronger.
|One of the strongest classes in the game, the Swordfighter focuses on dealing a lot of damage in a short time. However, he is very fragile having the weakest defenses out of all the classes. It doesn't helps that it is a close-ranged class, having only one ranged move, Rock. If you know how to retreat at the right time, the advantages outweight the disadvantages. Some players believe this class is overpowered because of this.|
|This class has extremely weak damage and is rather slow, but has incredible defenses to make up for it. It is unlikely you will die a lot with this class unless you aren't careful, and even then... The Defender has a lot of different moves, such as wind that launches enemies away and rock walls that emerge from the ground. One particular move, Reflect, can be used to do very powerful damage to enemies with their own attacks; some of them deal more damage then their own health.|
|The Magician is a class with a huge variety of moves, but with low damage overall. It can increase it's damage, create flames directly on foes, slow down enemies, poison them and even increase it's evasion. It can adapt to a lot of situations and is generally considered one of the best classes along with the Swordfighter.|
|A class that deals damage very quickly to enemies, and with very good accuracy. However, it's actual damage is rather low and it's pretty vunerable. They have the highest range in the game, specialising in sniping enemies. The Archer is good for players who don't like getting hurt. Some attacks are shot in an arch while others are straight. The archer is known to be horrible at close-combat as well as dealing with large groups.|
|The Bomber is a powerful class that deals a lot of damage, but rather slowly. It has slightly better range then the Swordfighter, but has a notable flaw in that he can harm himself with his attacks. It can use a variety of bombs such as grenades, mines and even rocket launchers. It is good to deal a lot of damage to bosses. The Bomber is also great to destroy crowds of enemies.|
|This class is a tank, able to deal a lot of damage and also able to stand huge blows. It is the slowest class in the game however. Good for reckless players, though you might have trouble escaping. It is considered one of the worst classes in the game because it cannot retreat and the high defenses aren't strong enough for most boss fights. It has to rely on allies in order to be useful.|
|A class that is a bit like a ninja; it is skilled at dodging attacks. It has rather weak defenses, though, so it is best to not get hit. Some of it's moves are pretty strong and it is also rather fast. It isn't exactly bad at anything but can't kill enemies as quickly as some of the other classes. In general it is a balanced and all-around class that is very useful for begginers and pros alike.|
There are various allies the player can unlock, but only one can be used at once. Some allies are more compatible with certain classes then others. Allies have 5 moves. You have control over their behaviour; they will attack enemies but you can also command them to do actions such as staying close to you, running away and standing still until an enemy approaches. One can also enable or disable attacks. They are essential to beat some of the stronger bosses. They can be considered AI-controlled classes.
Carapar the Ninja
|Carapar is a mysterious ninja who hides his face under a hood. He has glowing eyes. His skin seems to be green. It is unknown what are his goals through they don't seem to major; it is possible he just does it for show. He attacks using dark and stealth themed moves. He tends to dodge moves a lot, which can be harmful to the player if they rely on him for defense, especially Lumberjack players.|
|A chicken rumored to have created the world, but who's so lazy he doesn't cares about stopping all the mean guys roaming around unless you convince him too. He is rather nice through, always helping new people as well as his friends. Most of his attacks are joke attacks, like dealing a lot of damage with a single slap.|
Angrie the Fire Blob
|A genderless Fire Blob that keeps beign angry because it can. It's actually intentionally trying to be so angry, as it gets angry about every single thing. Despite this, it joins you. Angrie is rather slow, but it's fire attacks can deal a lot of damage. It has a variety of moves such as fireballs, fire spins and flaming dashes.|
|Guest is a test robot made to test people's reactions to a robotic guest entering the restaurant they work at. He only has set lines, most of which are based on food through it also has lines based on stuff like animals. After the tests, it was modified to what it says has on effect on real life. For example, "Hot!" would summon fire in front of it. These lines act as his attacks. Enemies tend to target him.|
Pokeman the Dragon
|Pokeman is a dragon who is a bit like Angrie through he is legitimately angry unlike it. He hates puns, through you can't really blame him as his teammates make horrible puns all the time. The dragon has quite the accent; when he talks, he talks a bit like a pirate. He tends to use brute force to get through things, which are his attacks.|
|Searchie is an hybrid creature made in a laboratory. He seems to be half avian, half alien. He has two antennas. One of his arm is an arm cannon while the other is a tentacle. Most of his attacks are electric themed though some are wind and even poison themed too. He seems to be pretty smart, dodging attacks and guessing what the player will do next more accurately then the others. However, he deals less average damage then some of the other classes.|

Boss "pets" are the strongest ones, however, matching the strength of allies. They can be very useful to beat bosses.
Locations and Enemies
The game has many areas the player can visit. In these areas, there are sub-areas, of varying difficulty. Each area and sub-area has different monsters through monsters may be shared between areas.
The enemies in the locations are randomly generated. For example, in one run of Begaini Forest, the player may only encounter a little amount of Chickens but find a lot of Pigs, but in another visit, they may find Normal Blobs instead of Pigs and more Chickens. Nearly all of these monsters can become pets.
The first area unlocked into the game. The areas and monsters are fairly basic, and the difficulty is low. These areas do not consist much more then generic places like forests.
A simple, plain grass and flower field with a few trees here and there. Several agricultural structures, like mills, are seen too and most of the enemies are farm animals (including 6 different pigs!), althrough a few other creatures like Blobs can be found there. It is widely considered the easiest area in the game.
|Because Chickens are obviously very viscious! Chickens won't attack you unless you interrupt them; if you do, they'll violently peck you. They deal a surprisingly high amount of damage.||Common|
|It is said that if you attack the pig, it will never stop attacking you. Despite this, you can still tame them...So that's false. Anyways, if you attack these pigs, they will charge at you.||Common|
|This cat will make you regret having laughed at lolcats. They're more aggresive then the other animals and will try to scratch you with no mercy. What a rude creature.||Common|
|Some think it is the cutest creature to exist. It's nothing but a puddle with eyes. If you attack it, it will cry out other puddles which can slow you down at best.||Common|
|No, not the despicable ones. They're fatter and rounder then goblins, and they don't wear clothes. They will challenge you to punch duels. But they don't ask before punching!||Common|
|Green Goblins have a strange liking to pink swimsuits. Aside from that, they're kinda like wizards, carrying staves and beign "close to nature". They cast grass spell on other goblins.||Average|
|Red Goblins love fire! So much that they made hatchets. They use it to chop down trees to make fire. But they may mistake you for a tree and attack you. Or maybe they're just mean.||Average|
|Blue Goblin carry fishing spears to fish. Except there's no lakes and rivers in these fields! So instead they use them as swords. As with other goblins they hate all other goblin kinds.||Average|
|A pig with the power of fire. It's like a normal pig, except it's red and it burns you when it hits you. Oh, and they make better bacon.||Rare|
|A pig that was struck by lightning and now has lightning power. It's yellow and will stun you when it hits you. According to Minecraft, they should be zombie pigmen, but whatever.||Rare|
|When pigs spend too much time in water, they become blue instead of drowning. They charge at people, making those people slower for a while. Wait, how did it find enough water?||Rare|
|A vegetarian pig...I'm not sure if pigs are herbivores, but whatever. It's now green and restores it's HP very fast, making them annoying to kill.||Rare|
|Fairy Pig||Very few are the ones that have seen this legendary pig. These pigs are much nicer and will just be tamed as soon as you find them. They even heal you if you use them!||Very Rare|
Description: A forest area with many rocks and several tunnels. There is a noticeable amount of mushrooms in this area. The enemies here are stronger then in the Fields, but it is still an easy area if you know what you're doing. Just hope you don't encounter a Winged Giant Black Ant. The majority of enemies are ants, althrough a few other creatures can be found there too. A boss, Jimbly the Giant Mushroom, is found here.
|Some think it is the cutest creature to exist. It's nothing but a puddle with eyes. If you attack it, it will cry out other puddles which can slow you down at best.||Common|
|No, not the despicable ones. They're fatter and rounder then goblins, and they don't wear clothes. They will challenge you to punch duels. But they don't ask before punching!||Common|

|Giant Black Ant||Giant Black Ants are like Giant Red Ants except they're a bit nicer. However, that doesn't mean they're weaker; they'll buzz loudly when you approach them, It deals damage.||Average|
|Boar||If a pig doesn't turns into any of the "elemental pigs", it will most likely become the dangerous Boar. Boar act just like pigs, except they're more aggresive.||Rare|

Description: A simple mountain-y area. But beware! Despite how early game you can access it (right after beating Jimbly), the Mountains are actually rather tough. Few monsters spawn here, but the map is wide meaning missions will take some time.
Description: A peaceful beach...well, not really peaceful. It's a rather small map at first, althrough it's actually rather huge accounting for the sea; however, some rocks prevent you from exiting the area completely. You're forced to go underwater to get past some sections; the area is designed to introduce players to water mechanics.
Description: A lush jungle with a lot of exotic species such as Orange Dragonflies and Springtails, but also...stranger species, like Palm Dragons. Yes, there are seriously palmtree dragons in here. The map is very wide and it can be quite confusing at times. There's also a lot of monsters that spawn here. However most of the monsters are kind of weak, thanksfully.
Description: This large canyon is special because you'll find lava in the later sections! This lava is not harmless but won't one-shot you. It's similar to the Mountain in that the map is huge, but there are few monsters, but at the same time they're pretty strong. At the end of the canyon, you'll find a single-room lair which is home to the cruel Kony, a Rocket Demon.
A very strange place which seems to guard a gigantic computer. Most, but not all of the monsters found here are robotic. The place is kind of swamp-like, and is drenched in what appears to be...coolant? Not to mention the sand is blue, the trees are cyan with olive leaves...was the one who created this place blind?
This place is slightly weirder then it's cover, but that role is carried by various kinds of ant-like creatures such as "Syntaxes". It's also SWARMING with "Pulse Bolts". There's a strange black structure in the center of the CPU, but don't approach it; it'll give you an automatic game over by converting you into a Cyberlith creature. Spooky. There's coolant here like in Cover, but in much smaller quantities. Near the top of the imap, you can face Virinus, an alien.
A strange island located far from other places, but closest to Cyberlith. It is kind of mountain-like. There are normal monsters here like "Red Raptors", but also skeletal variants of those that seems to have mechanical implants. There's also a lot of robots in general, and you can find some ruins of a factory. But that factory was in ruins since decades. Just what is creating the robots?
A cool desert with a lot of desert monsters. Ironically, there are a few oasises here, making this place one of the few areas with water in them. At first the area seems rather barren, but nearly all of the monsters travel in packs. Not to mention some of them are really aggressive. Beware of the cactuses, they hurt and if you hit one by accident there's a good chance there's a Cactus Beetle Larva in it, which is another threat to fight.
This pyramid has very few monsters and a rather small map, but it compensates by having a lot of puzzles in it. When you first enter the map you will always fight Zeth the Sand Shark, the sleepy king of the Forseth Desert, so you can't explore the map until later. Zeth's always open for a rematch but he'll never cause a mission to happen, so fighting him again gives no real reward.
These characters are not playable, or allies. However, they play a major to minor role.
The game has an hefty amount of bosses. The bosses aren't just "there" for the most part, actually playing roles in the story and having personallities. Most of them even have dialogue.
Jimbly the Giant Mushroom
|Jimbly is a giant mushroom with a face, feet and arms. He has a red cap with white spots. His body is tan, while his feet and arms are brown. He appears sleepy or bored most of the time, and has squinty eyes. Some call him the "guardian of the forest", althrough if anything he hinders it as he often releases toxic spores.||Jimbly starts the battle by spinning, releasing huge spores that sprout into large mushrooms damaging mushroom. He then creates roots which try to attack the player's goblin. In his last attack, he releases clouds of smaller spores, which poison the goblin if they hit him. He repeats this pattern until defeated.|
Virinus the Alien Overseer
|Virinus is the queen of Cyberlith, and the one that created it. She is a small green alien in an UFO. She is one of the smallest bosses, only beign the same size as Goblin thanks to her UFO. She is very corrupt and sees her land as the "Perfect Place", planning to corrupt all of the world into it. She has a large army of robots and cyborgs protecting her.||TBA|
|Zeth the Desert Monarch||TBA||TBA|
|Banafrit the Mysterious Ice Organism||TBA||TBA|
|Lleh the Greedy Wyvern||TBA||TBA|
|Kony the Demon King (First Form)||TBA||TBA|
|Kony the Demon King (Second Form)||TBA||TBA|
All monsters in the game have an unique item they occasionally drop when they are beaten. Most, if not all of them, have different effects. Some heal, but when they do, they heal in different ways. Others give stat boosts, but these stat boosts may or may not have disadvantages too. ETC.
|Feathers are one of the many things that prove this game completely ignores physics; they make your goblin faster! However, attacks knock you further away. Can be equipped or unequipped at will.||Chicken|
|Despite the fact you never see one of these in Main Island, some pigs carry these mushrooms on them. It is a basic healing item that heals a decent amount of HP. Consumed upon use.||Pig|
|Sometimes a cat will be a little too vicious at you and will lose one of it's claw. That claw lets you deal a small amount of damage more then usual. Can be equipped and unequipped at will.||Cat|
|If you were cruel enough to hurt a blob, you might get this ball. But it's only a punishment; using it will actually slow you down and might even poison you! And it's consumed upon use.||Blob|
|Some minions carry a coin which doesn't really does anything, but makes the user luckier anyways. This item will give you a chance to do more damage then usual when you attack. Can be equipped or unequipped at will.||Minion|
|A green orb containing a large amount of natural power. Using it will heal you by 50% of your total HP. It isn't consumed upon use, but it needs to recharge for one mission.||Green Goblin|
|A red orb containing the power of fire. Wait, does each orb contains all the power of fire or what? Anyways, using it will launch a powerful fireball at enemies. Needs to recharge after use.||Red Goblin|
|A blue orb which contains water. How mundane. Using it will summon rain on the area, lowering enemies defenses, but the orb is nice enough to not affect you. Needs to recharge after use.||Blue Goblin|
|Don't worry, you didn't kill that pig. The bacon came from thin air, trust me... Anyways, eating it will heal you fully; but this only lasts for one minute. Once it's over, the boost is gone. Consumed upon use.||Fire Pig|
|It's full of energy! It is the drink of pros! It makes you two times faster! Well, except the effect wears off, and it lowers your speed by half after. Use it wisely, as it's consumed upon use.||Lightning Pig|
|A droplet of water that tastes good. Lowers the damage you take from attacks for one minute and slightly heals HP. The defense boost wears off like the other elemental pig drops, but the heal isn't. Consumed upon use.||Water Pig|
|A vegetarian's worst nightmare. This fruit that increases your total HP by 25% and heals you by 25% of your total HP. However, this boost only applies for one mission. Consumed upon use, of course.||Grass Pig|
|This didn't come from the wolf, don't worry. You can throw this bone at enemies and then get it back. Pretty useful if you need a ranged attack. However, it has a chance to break, so don't use it too much.||Wolf|
|Red ants like this powder, which comes from some flowers. Using it increases the strength of your physical attacks. Once used, it's effect is permanent until you use another item with a similar effect (like Black Powder).||Giant Red Ant|
|Black Ants like this powder, but red ants will try to destroy it upon sight! Unlike the red powder, it increases the strength of your ranged attacks. It's effect is permanent until another similar item is used.||Giant Black Ant|
|Truffles aren't seen in the forest. These have a more bitter taste then the normal truffle. While they heal you even more then normally, they slow you down temporarily. Consumed upon use.||Boar|
|Sometimes, the poor giant red ant will lose it's wings in a fight. Equipping this item increases the power of your attacks, but also make enemy knockback higher. Can be equipped or unequipped at will.||Winged Giant Red Ant|
|Black Ants can also lose thier wings. Equipping this item increases your defense. Like the red wings, through, it makes enemy knockback higher. Can be equipped or unequipped at will.||Winged Giant Black Ant|
amiibo is a feature exclusive to console versions of the game. It allows the players to get various boosts ingame. For example, using a Sonic amiibo will give the player a speed boost in thier next mission. If the game doesn't haves functionallity for an amiibo, it will give them a random item instead.
These amiibos change the class of the goblin for one mission. If the player is playing as the class the amiibo is, they will get a boost in all stats instead. These are the most common amiibo.
These amiibos allows the player to play as an ally for one round. These amiibos are rarer then the class amiibo, through still pretty common.

The game always took place in the same universe, and Goblin was always the main character. However, the gameplay was rather different. Unlike the current game, you could actually level up, but the allies didn't actually help in battles, and the game was very similar to Zelda games in that you would have to go to dungeons to progress, and get utility items such as the "Ant Staff". Also, instead of featuring drops as the game's items, it had buyable items and upgrades of weapons of the class you were. Additionally, there were only 3 classes; the Swordsman, the Magician and the Defender.
ROBLOX sponsored the original game, rather oddly. This explains Guest's similarity to the "guests" from ROBLOX; except he actually looked identical to one. Another odd thing is that the game seemed to be inspired by Pokemon by some degrees; careful inspection revealed the creatures actually all corresponded to Pokemon types, not to mention Pokeman is almost named Pokemon...
The ROBLOX inspiration turned off a lot of people, while most other people who disliked the game saw it as a "Zelda clone with Fakemon". The development team released a demo, which was received as mostly "meh", althrough they was some players who liked the gameplay a bit, citing the 3 different classes as beign pretty fun to try out. People also liked that the game was pretty cute, as well as the diverse range of areas to explore.
Seeing the criticism, the development team almost remade the game from scratch, but they kept the elements people liked and expanded on them. They introduced 4 classes to go with the 3 original classes; Bomber, Archer, Lumberjack and Gunslinger. The Swordsman was also renamed to Swordsfighter. The game was now mission-based instead of being dungeon-based. The leveling elements and the currency were removed to make the game less complex and more accessible. The story was also almost completely remade, although some elements are similar, such as the intro, the presence of a team that helps people, and the threat at the end of the game.
When the V2 was announced, the creators began to port the game to it. The V2 version was released slightly later then the other versions, but this didn't stop it from having the highest sales out of the console versions of the game, due to beign slightly higher quality in general, not to mention some bugs in the game were fixed in the release.
While the game's early version had mediocre reception, the newer version has positive reception overall. The characters are well liked; people say they are very cute and are all rather memorable. The large amount of classes the player can choose coupled with a very high variety of items is liked because it gives the game high customability. People also like the ally system a lot although giving orders to the allies occasionally gets tough. The mission and rescue-oriented gameplay is also liked a lot and considered unique in comparison to most other RPGs. Some players were surprised to see Goblin as the main character, as he was actually playable in games as early as Fantendo Smash Bros. Shattered.
The game is not without negative elements, through. Players have criticised the game for it's similarity to the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. Some players also find that most of the characters are not very expressive due to the lack of mouths, but some think said lack of mouths actually makes them cuter. It is often considered that the middle part of the game is pretty boring due to being mostly filler. The third part is also sometimes disliked because the concept of an alien threat attacking the planet is a pretty often used cliché. Finally, there isn't much post-game content besides some extra bosses.
- While the artwork is in a cartoony two-dimensional style with simple shadows, the game itself is 3D and has somewhat more complicated shadows.
- The Swordfighter is the default class if the player somehow skips the introduction sequence.
- The game's ports are as accurate as possible to each other, but the 3DS has a lot less enemies and smaller areas than the other versions to prevent framerate drops. This makes most people consider the 3DS some kind of "Easy Mode" compared to the other versions.
