Hellenica - Tips + Mechanics + Achievements Guide

Tips, Achievements, Mechanics and a Hard Objectives checklist, all uncovered on your planning pleasure 🙂

Introduction

I really like tactic video games and achievements so i simply needed to go for 100% on this one.

Man, what a trip! This game was tremendous enjoyable and the story was extra fascinating than I anticipated!

Dude! Werebadgers!

Well, yeah, possibly she is a werebear however for me, she is a werebadger!

From the intro, I actually fell in love with it and then she got here.. and broke the spell.

Well, wonderful, I suppose. The game had me actually pumping there as Epic however that is enjoyable too!

Anyway, the type and mechanics remind me of the previous Tactics Ogre/Final Fantasy Tactics video games of previous and I actually like Hellenica for it. This is a quite simple game however the pushing/tossing mechanics are very enjoyable!

Those operating animations are tremendous humorous too!

Each stage has little challenges so that you can attempt and do which provides to each battle.

One factor I didnt like was that there was no “Speed Up” possibility for animations, each battle is slowed down by trying on the enemies stroll round. There isnt a tutorial both however most issues are fairly apparent, I’ll add a Mechanics part for individuals who need assistance on this.

There isnt any choice to remap the game hotkeys both.

And and the AI is fairly dumb generally, however’s its wonderful.

If this game ever will get a Hard mode it might be enabling the AI to Toss/Push you off, man, lethal!

Storywise, this game has branching paths however you may return and take one other path while you’d like so youre probably not lacking something and on this, the game could be very versatile. I do suggest you keep on with a path till you get to a recruit THEN begin once more on Day 1 and take one other route, it is extra enjoyable that approach, I believe.

Game is round 20 hours, 30 should you go for all achievements (Hard Objectives take time).

Mechanics and Interface

The game autosaves, you may replay fights, dont fear about it.

This is the primary battle display screen:

Yellow Arrow: Here you may click on the PC portraits to shortly go to them and begin giving them orders.

Red Rectangle: Switches the Isometric View (Can even be moved with Q and E)

*The digicam itself may be moved with WASD keys or click on and drag the map.

*Zoom In: R, Zoom Out: F

Yellow Rectangle: PC Info and the Orders you can provide them.

Red Arrow: How many PCs nonetheless can transfer/take actions and while you hover your mouse on it OR no extra PCs can transfer, you End your Turn right here.

Moving

To transfer, when you will have a PC chosen, simply click on on a yellow sq..

The little arrow beneath the character mannequin tells you its dealing with after you progress, you get much less broken from the entrance and extra from the perimeters and specifically from the again. (Well, thats how I really feel)

After you click on on an assault, you need to choose a Target, solely targets inside Red Squares may be focused, the crimson squares seem after clicking on the motion.

During your motion resolution, you may click on on an Enemy to see how far they will stroll (Blue squares) and how far they will assault (Red Squares)

Turn

After transferring, deciding on an motion, then a goal (if relevant), just a little Arrow to the best aspect of the character information panel will seem, that can verify that character’s actions for the flip.

To cancel an motion, simply click on on the motion you chose once more.

If you already confirmed each motion and motion, to cancel, click on on the X on the backside proper nook, the place the PC portrait is now.

Pushing

Pushing is a giant game mechanic, sure actions will push enemies or objects about and you’ll be notified of it, if it might occur.

Here, the barrel will fall, bounce, then fall once more!

The Fall harm goes from 4dmg if its just one sq. and it grows exponentially, if enemies bounce, they obtain much more harm.

Skills

Before battle, you may click on on the SKILLS button (its beneath the START button) to spend your talent factors and re-assign abilities to characters.

Click on Change and right here you should purchase new abilities and equip them within the slots.

PCs dont get new talent slots so select properly!

Skill Points are shared between all characters!

Agora (Waypoint#1)

After the primary battle, you’ll enter the Agora, converse to the NPCs concerning the world to unlock new Paths (Missions), after speaking to the vital, confronted NPCs, you would possibly get paths from regular folks. (Right hand circle turns into accessible)

On the higher left, you will have settings, your journal(story) and abilities.

You can revisit battles from the Journal in order for you.

Its from the Travel Log (Journal) the place you may choose your subsequent battle.

These I name waypoints and from right here, you may speak to NPCs and/or click on on background objects to seek out new paths or dialogue.

Notes:

Tossing/Pushing is essentially the most enjoyable this game had for me. I liked it.

  • You can kill ghosts by hitting them with magic harm or ethereal harm.
  • Everyone does extra harm when attacking from the perimeters/again and from above.
  • Everyone does much less harm when attacking from the entrance or from beneath.
  • Above does extra harm than again assaults (besides backstabs).
  • On missions the place you’ll want to exit, the mission wont finish should you kill each enemy, you gotta exit.
  • When you bounce one thing, solely the factor bounced on takes harm except the factor falls at the least a bit after the bounces.
  • Heavy characters do extra bounce harm when tossed.
