Questions, complaints and Explainations thread

It seems as though their may be some confusion about Ex-Peppermint, which is understand-able considering its nature.
Here you can post what you are confused about. It will help me clarify for the next version and let me help you.

You can also use this to register any complaints (which I would really like to hear so I can improve on them).

It appears that people may have complaints because they don't understand the game anyway.

You can be pretty much assured that if there is something obviously wrong with Ex-Peppermint it was a creative decision and not a bug (other then the after death bug which I didn't think was important enough for me to fix yet given the time retriants). There is supposed to be stuff wrong with it. The explaination to this will come mid to late-game.(At least if you can pick up on it.)

Edit: Be sure to read the "keys and such" file.

I've delivered the package, went down the series of stairs (killing the mutant kitty, etc). Now it seems I can go through the rock-pushing maze (where the wasps kill me instantly) or go through the pie maze (where the bread products kill me nearly instantly). Woo. I'm stuck.

You can also go up the stairs behind the big woman. If you like.

I did that... that's what I meant by the "went down the series of stairs (killing the mutant kitty, etc)". I suppose I should have mentioned I went up the stairs too.

Well to Dink Again, the game is rather difficult... ...I think in the read me like thingie it mentions how you can fire over certain pies with fire balls. You should go to the bread maze, use bombs and hiding behind walls. Use the terrain to your benifit.

Be sure you have covered as much area after the tower as possible though first.

---You can go all the way down the tower to the ground. If you didn't...---

here is where you should probably go if you have not already:


Off the path after the tower to the left there is a man you should talk to. You should see a bonus there.

You should kill all the screens with pillbugs. Get the bonus save and go down. Kill the wasps. Go to the left get the bonus burn the tree and save on the warp pig screen.

Talk to the warp pig go to "the edge of the world" and head left untill you reach another stat booster. *Do not* go to the screen above 'cause it is hard right now.

You [i]might[i] be able to take the screen next to the water screen though to get more money and EXP.

It must be done stratigically though.

Make sure you go to billy bob's to the right after the tower to get the bombs; before taking the pie maze on.

If you need more help ask.

I gave up at the same point redink is at. I was tired of dying right away on those two sections...

on a side note, I like the humor in it. It makes no sense and makes me laugh Still, the difficulty is too high I think... there is good difficult and bad difficult and so far it seems to be the bad variety.

Does my post help at all?
I suppose I should include a walkthrough if I still care enough to make a new version.
Did you read what I posted above?
I didn't think the pie maze was so hard... also should bring mushrooms and use the mushroom use key in mid battle I suppose.


With the difficulty I was sort of going for an original Megaman type feel.
I beat Cast initiation fairly recently and had little trouble on normal mode where it seems most other people used easy so maybe I am just a little off on my perception of what is "hard".

Obviously, if I make a new version I am going to have to add an easy mode.

I can use a global varible to modify enemy stats. It would be really easy if it was not for how poorly Dink handles external procedures.

I'll go back and play it some more sometime here. I am really using every spare moment right now on FB2. I think the "hard" part about the pies is that they are moving 10 times faster than you can move and react so basically they are like deathtraps. I guess you are suppossed to kill them from protected ground :/

Well weigh slay, Finding cover is not a good option in a couple of scenarios... You should kill them mostly from afar if I recall correctly any way using mini fireball. Make sure you have gotten all the bonuses I mentioned, some bombs (for combat reasons), mushrooms and the spells you can afford.

--Oh, yeah Make sure you complete the noodle "quest" first.--
