Episode 01: Under Da Sea


The first boss has 75HP, so you have to hit him 15 times without being hit 5 times. There's enough little items lying around to take one extra hit, but good luck grabbing them all without taking one!

Oh, and something I was told after recording: The Swordfish Horn is an exception to the three uses rule. It doesn't break, but it locks you into using the mid-tier jaws.

I think the Strolites in the game are a reference to Stromatolites which are a type of rock colony created by cyanobacteria in shallow waters. They are still around today in fact and one of the best places to see them is in a place called Shark Bay in Western Australia. It's weird to think of living rocks, but that's basically what they are.

e: have a picture!

A couple notes about that first transformation crystal: It actually changes you into one of two forms, the other being a very fast eel with 100 HP. Also, the ray form is affected by your size when you swallow the crystal. The large ray also has 100 HP. IIRC, only one other crystal form has a size difference.
