Yggdrasillogo
Yggdrasil is a beat em' up platformer designed by Laughball Interactive for the V², featuring several cooking and farming elements as well. Players can traverse through procedurally generated levels to hunt monsters and gather ingredients, and then return home to cook up dishes that can be used to gain buffs, or gifted to NPCs in exchange for new weapons and tools.

Gameplay

Basics

In Yggdrasil, players control Syzele, a huntress with a variety of skills and tools at her disposal. The primary focuses of Yggdrasil are hunting down enemies across the six 'tiers' of the world tree, and using ingredients you acquire along the way to cook. Different recipes will increase your abilities in different ways, and as you progress further, you'll find higher quality ingredients and more exotic recipes.

In addition to cooking for yourself, you can give food away to the townsfolk and visitors of Rhoston, allowing you to upgrade your weaponry, unlock new ones, or receive other gifts. Different people have different preferences in food, so preparing the right dish is key to getting the best gear.

Hunting

When out hunting, Syzele can jump by tapping the V2Action Green button (or the right bottom trigger), and tapping it again will allow her to double jump or climb up nearby ledges. She can attack using the V2Action Purple (or right inner trigger) for light attacks and the V2Action Blue button (or left inner trigger) for heavy attacks, with different weapons featuring different combos. Four weapons can be mapped to the V2Directional for quick usage, and the rest are located in the paused menu, along with Syzele's 24-slot inventory of ingredients.

The V2Action Red button (or left bottom trigger) is a situational action command; when in the middle of a combo, it can quickly be tapped to block incoming enemy attacks, although a poorly timed block will stun Syzele momentarily. If Syzele is holding any dishes, you can hit V2Action Red to start eating, although some larger dishes will leave Syzele vulnerable while she eats. Using the Center Scroll Wheel allows you to tilt the camera around slightly to scout ahead.

Yggdrasil is divided into six "Tiers", each with 8 regular levels, a Ruin, and a Sanctuary where bosses are fought. To unlock new levels, Syzele must locate a Shrine and leave three ingredients there. Ruins can be unlocked by finding a well-hidden Stone Tablet, and Sanctuaries are automatically unlocked after your first visit to that tier's Ruin.

Cooking

Each ingredient Syzele finds has up to three associated flavors out of a total of six - Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Salty, Savory, and Spicy. These flavors will boost Syzele's stats in certain ways.

  • Sweetness increases Syzele's agility, letting her move faster and jump higher.
  • Sourness increases Syzele's defense, letting her resist more damage.
  • Bitterness increases Syzele's attack power, letting her hit harder.
  • Saltiness increases Syzele's resourcefulness, giving her a chance to forage extra ingredients.
  • Savoriness increases Syzele's HP, letting her last longer without having to return home to rest.
  • Spiciness increases Syzele's attack speed, letting her hit faster.

Eating basic ingredients provides temporary stay boosts while hunting, but cooking them up together allows her to gain permanent upgrades, which can be measured in Syzele's status menu. Relying too much on one flavor makes your other stats weaker, so a balanced diet is crucial to utilizing your full potential.

Recipes are unlocked by clearing levels under certain conditions; generally speaking, most levels have two or three recipes to unlock. Recipes call for specific ingredients, but Syzele can often substitute basic ingredients for more powerful Grade-A, Grade-A+, and Grade-S variants.

Cooking in Yggdrasil is done through a variety of minigames, with higher quality recipes requiring both more minigames and better performance. Each minigames can be practiced at any time at Syzele's home without wasting actual ingredients. The minigames include:

  • Stir: Rotate the thumbsticks in varying directions to stir up batter or sauce.
  • Tenderize: Mash V2Action Purple and V2Action Blue (or the inner triggers) to soften up tough ingredients.
  • Chop: Use V2Action Green (or the right bottom trigger) to chop up ingredients while using V2Directional to carefully move your knife.
  • Heat Up: Use the center scroll wheel to adjust your stove's temperature, making sure not to undercook or burn your ingredients.

Name Info Drops Found In
Osseoar These wild boars live on a calcium-rich diet, with bones as strong as steel. They'll try to run you down with their spiked tusks and horns, but if they hit an obstacle, they'll get stuck, giving you a good opening to attack. Osseoars are often found close together, but they won't gang up on you unless a Chief Osseoar's leading the charge. Osseoar Pork (100%)

Osseoar Tusk (20%)

Salted Wilds (T1-1, T1-2, T1-3, T1-4, T1-5)
Clambeibo These mischievous little tree-dwelling rodents have a set of six prehensile tails on their backs, letting them hang freely from trees. They'll drop down to attack you and hide away quickly, so try to hit them quickly. If there's fruit in their tree, they'll toss them as projectiles, so keep an eye out. Clambeibo Tails (100%)
Salted Wilds (T1-1, T1-2, T1-3, T1-4)
Fleffum These strange lizards are covered from head to toe in a soft coat of feathers. They live close to the ground and can fluff up their feathers to soften any damage they take, so a sneak attack is key. Their brightly colored feathers draw a lot of attention, so if you set these little guys off, nearby beasts may attack too. Fleffum Legs (100%)

Prism Dust (100%)

Salted Wilds (T1-2, T1-3, T1-4)
Green Jelgly These vivid green slimes are one of the many native breeds of Jelglies inhabiting Yggdrasil. They tend to live in fields and forests, gathering nutrients from fresh fruit. Green Jelglies move fast and can slow you down, but they don't pack a big punch, so they're fairly easy to fend off. Green Jelgly Slime (100%)

Jelglied Fruit (10%)

Salted Wilds (T1-1, T1-3, T1-4)
Orange Jelgly These vivid orange slimes are one of the many native breeds of Jelglies inhabiting Yggdrasil. They tend to live in caves and plains, slowly absorbing nutrients from the ground.

Weapons and Tools

Name Info Obtained By
Butcher's Blade A large two-handed sword resembling a butcher's knife. Hit V2Action Purple to slash at your opponents, or perform a powerful overhead swing with V2Action Blue. Unlocked by default
Kebab Javelin A long wooden javelin, capable of being used as a weapon or a useful tool. Hold V2Action Blue to pull back, use the left control stick to aim, and release to toss it. It deals decent damage to enemies, can hit fruit out of trees, and even serve as an extra clambering point if it hits a wall. Three-Star Gift from Seymour
Cast-Iron Hammer A huge two-handed hammer, requiring perfect balance to swing. It's a powerful melee weapon that can defeat even the toughest foes, but its attacks are slow and leave you vulnerable. Holding V2Action Blue lets Syzele charge up for a heavy slam that stuns all nearby enemies. Three-Star Gift from Dominio Alumina
Bloodlust Shackle A mysterious heavy bracelet, glowing bright red beneath its rough surface. With this equipped, Syzele will have to fight with her bare hands, but its ominous red light will guide you to strong enemies, and Syzele gets a massive attack boost for every foe she defeats. Once it's been upgraded, you can also use it to revive defeated bosses for a rematch. Three-Star Gift from Dare
Disposable Camera An old-school disposable camera from Earth. Hold down V2Action Purple to snap a picture of an enemy; this provides you with some data on its stats and where they're most common. You can also use V2Action Blue to do some flash photography, briefly stunning enemies. After three pictures, it's pretty much useless, so use it carefully.

Armor

Name Info Obtained By
Huntress's Coat

no upgrades or downgrades

A simple plaid longcoat, with plenty of pocket space and simple fabric. It doesn't really do anything special, but it doesn't hinder anything either. Unlocked by default
Iron-Plated Coat

+5% defense, -5% attack speed

A thick coat with some armor plating on the shoulders and legs. It was designed it to hit a good balance between endurance and maneuverability, but the heavy iron and thick fabric make it hard to keep up in a fight. Bought from Dominio Obsidi
Heavy Armor

+30% defense, -60% movement speed and jump height

A bulky suit of steel armor with an intimidating look to it. It's practically impenetrable, but being a walking tank means sacrificing a lot of agility. Bought from Dominio Obsidi
