Souldiers Cheats and Tips
There Are Three Difficulties
Players don’t need to worry about Souldiers being too hard or too easy for them. There are three choices presented at the start of the game: Explorer, Soldier, and Warrior. The best thing of all, these modes can be changed in the options at any time.
The game does warn players that if the difficulty is changed, they can’t earn achievements. If that is something that matters to a player then they might want to start the game from scratch if they want to change the difficulty. It should be noted that Souldiers is an RPG with a gold system, meaning that players can always grind if things get too hard.
Testing Out Classes
Like the difficulty system, there are three classes to choose from in Souldiers. The Scout is like a typical warrior class in an RPG. They have strong defenses, health, and good attack power. The Archer, who uses a bow, and the Caster, who is a mage, focus on ranged attacks. Their health, attack, and defense stats are lower than the Scout, but they have the advantage of being able to fight from a distance.
For beginners, the Scout is the best option, especially on the Warrior difficulty. If players plan to check out Explorer instead then all three classes are viable options.
Souldiers is a Metroidvania at heart. Instinctively, players might want to progress at a brisk pace through the map. While that is certainly an option, it might put players at a disadvantage.
Souldiers is an action RPG as well, which means that if players don’t level up, they may find themselves dying more often. It’s a good idea to grind at certain save points if players find an area with a good amount of enemies nearby. Saving will reset the world similar to a Soulslike experience. So, save the game, kill monsters, go back to the save point, and repeat. It’s RPG 101.
Look Out For Secret Walls
Two types of hidden walls can be found in Souldiers. Some will be marked on the map by rubble, and these walls can be blown up once players acquire bombs after unlocking the shop. Without the map, players will eventually be able to tell an explodable wall from a solid one.
There are also hidden walls. Simply trying to walk into a wall may reveal a hidden room. There are no requirements needed. So, while exploring the layout in this Metroidvania, make sure to hug every wall.
Take Manual Notes
Another good idea for any Metroidvania is to take manual notes. Some things will be marked on the map like the aforementioned explodable walls, but other stuff may not be written down automatically.
The nice thing about playing games nowadays is that all consoles have some sort of image capturing system built within. Making a note and taking a screenshot will go a long way when players need to backtrack. This is especially useful when gaining a new power, like the fire ability, which can open up fresh pathways.
