Temple of Spikes: The Legend Guide - How To Have Fun While Dying Constantly

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 8th, 2018

We’ve been dying over and over in the absolutely brutal Temple of Spikes: The Legend recently, but somehow we can’t stop playing it. If you want to have as good a time as we are with the game, check out a few of these tips to help you out:

How to spot secret areas

Every level in Temple of Spikes has a secret area where you can go through a particularly challenging platforming section to retrieve a Scarab. These areas aren’t exactly easy to see though. They are almost always hallways that are hidden behind walls that you can just walk through, but there is a trick to spotting them. As you’re moving close to a level’s walls, your torch can shine past walls where secret passages are, so keep that in mind while you’re trying to go Scarab hunting.

Dig Dog Guide - Dig Deep to Discover Your Inner Dog

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 8th, 2018

Dig Dog is a platforming game that feels something like a cross between the arcade simplicity of Dig Dug and the ultra tough (but unwaveringly fair) Spelunky. Here’s a few tips to help you get better in your dogged pursuit of bones.

Go the distance

When you first start playing Dig Dog, I recommend just trying to get as far into the game’s Bone Hunt mode as possible. This is both because the Dig Dog’s other mode seems almost completely lacking in challenge and also because getting through levels in Bone Hunt can unlock new worlds that you can warp to immediately on new runs. If you clear enough levels to visit a new world a few times, you eventually get the power to warp straight there, which can cut out having to replay older and easier worlds.

Older dogs learn newer tricks
