Solar Ash Cheats and Tips
PLASMA IS THE PRIMARY CURRENCY
Before you get started, you need to know the importance of Plasma. Plasma is the resource you’ll find easily across the void, and it’s very easy to collect it, but it’s not immediately obvious how crucial it is. You’ll use it as your primary currency to upgrade your health with synthesis available from Cyd.
Every time you take down one of the colossal Remnants, you’ll lose a canister of health, so you need to be constantly collecting and topping up your shields. Don’t miss any – you’ll rue that you did.
VOIDRUNNER CACHES UNLOCK SUIT PARTS
Dotted around the map, you’ll find Voidrunner Caches as your main “collectible”. They’ll give you a greater insight into the way the Ultravoid works through the lens of fellow Voidrunners, friendly or not.
It’s worth knowing, though, that each of these caches will grant you a piece of a brand new suit that you can equip to grant yourself new buffs and abilities. Find all five caches in an area and you’ll unlock something new to help you on your journey.
JOURNALS PROVIDE EXTRA LORE
Also scattered across the world are pieces of the journal of Tarragon Danderpaw, a mysterious figure who you’ll discover has a lot to say about the ever-shifting Ultravoid. If you want any chance of 100% completing the game, you’ll have to find them all – and they’re not exactly easy to spot.
If you find any piece of paper sat out for you to inspect, make sure you read it, as you might be lucky enough to get a peek into Danderpaw’s mind.
USE THE BOOST SPARINGLY
Now, perhaps the most important part of Solar Ash – its movement. It might be tempting to absolutely blast the boost button to keep your speed high (as after all, reaching huge speeds is immensely satisfying), but chances are, you’ll only distract yourself by spamming and miss those all-important jumps. Do yourself a favour – keep it to a minimum.
