Tunic Cheats and Tips
Target often and change targets as necessary
Dodging and throwing attacks will only go so far without some proper guidance. Make sure to target enemies as you move in for attacks or perform dodge rolls. You’ll always attack and dodge when you press the corresponding button but where is up to you. This is particularly important when facing multiple enemies, especially as foes change positions and present different challenges.
Watch those ears
The fox will move their head toward points of interest as you make your way past them. Sometimes it’s a cave entrance you would never miss but other times it can be a treasure chest tucked off to the side or a trail just behind a bush. Watch the fox’s head as you move through Tunic’s colorful world; you just might discover a special item or shortcut that will ease the burdens of your adventure.
Don’t hesitate to chop everything once you get the sword
Bushes and grass are fun to chop down. The green cover can also provide a hidden home to goodies or passage to somewhere else. There’s no harm in chopping all of the grass and bushes you see, and it increases your chances of finding something cool.
Watch your stamina closely–and don’t ever be afraid to run
Holding A to run is always an option, and it never uses stamina. You take more damage when your stamina is in the lowest percentile, so you really don’t want to risk damage in those moments. Instead run away, heal if needed, and plan your next move accordingly. Dodge, block, and move until you have a good plan put together.
Practice patience and watch the attacks of enemies before engaging
Enemies will often telegraph their attack patterns as they become aware of the cute little fox, especially as the gap between the two is reduced. Be prepared to dodge or block for their first few attempts at dishing out damage. Knowing their attack pattern will provide the key moments to engage, allowing you to save on health and stamina.
