7 hours in:
I have returned...from the NETHER REALMS! I have seen...unspeakable thrillies! I have sucked...more than KIRBY!
Oh, the Great Green One and his adventures are a tricksy sort. I have teamed up with up to three other manifestations of His Greenliness: Bluigi, Pinkuigini and Orangicetto! We have conquered the Terror Tower many times. I even went searching by myself by choosing the path of local play and just not letting anyone into my tortured, awful, gothic world. Leave me alone! For it is my choice to chase and capture phantom dogs on each floor before time runs out. I have even come back from the ghastly experience with gold! Gold to feed my pretty tools so they may evolve into glorious ghost-busting gadgets of gold-wrought gain! In fact, you can do the same when you use your 3DS's ghostly rays to communicate with another spirit in the same room, or download your soul into the 3DSes of others, creating a poltergeist party of four, or send your essence into the ether, that mysterious Wi-Fi to find strangers or friends who will aid our cause.
Lo! There was much laughing to be had as Emperor Emerald and his three friends journeyed up the 5,10 or 25 floors of Terror Tower getting sucked into ectoplasm, burped upon, charged over, sucked into wardrobes without witches or lions, bumped into, had keys stolen from thine person, smashed into walls with doors with a mind of their own, had their vacuums plugged up, slipped on ectoplasmic goo, blown up, shot into the air, sliced and crowded around in an effort to find ghost dogs, escape deadly traps or defeat ghosts. But alas, our projected astral essence could not bear the agony of the Wi-Fi, as each floor had a time limit and we had to work together to scramble to the next and complete the objective the gods shouted from the heavens. Once we were done the gods dropped four red coins into the mansion and we scrambled to collect the four. The gods bestowed a higher chance of a power-up for the next floor on the one who collected their blood-tainted coins from the depths of the greedy man's hell by making the roulette stop on the spirit with the most coins.
I marveled to see there were many, many new ghosts that don't appear in the regular game who haunt the dastardly passageways of the curiously random Terror Towers. It was thrilling and terrifying, I had a bloody good time.
Eventually I fell out of my trance, ended the seance of the dead and returned to my studies of all things astral with the good professor and I found as the story of King Green continued he was bestowed with Darth Merenghi's Dark Light! A curious gizmo that could make disappeared things reappear. This meant, not only were there bronze, silver and gold metals for each level, but a mysterious Boo that could be captured by witty mortals with the foolish gall to track him down, following his ectoplasmic essence throughout the mansion and through walls until they come face to face with the Boo who can make furniture disappear and call upon ectoplasmic balls to protect him, and must be defeated with all the gadgets at The Green Majesty's disposal.
I am afraid I must go now. The ghostly realms are calling...calling...calling collect and I am afraid I must fish for change in the furniture with my vacuum...
