    Temple of War done 100%

    Thought it was great - some very challenging fights and excellent platforming. I assume I'm 3/4 of the way though, but still having lots of fun!

    Just got the Flying Goat thing (flying?) :D

    New abilities FTW

    I can't remember exactly what the area I'm in called, but I'm guessing I'm approaching the dreaded Javier Jaguar fight :/

    @Flying_Pig

    Not really that bad at all mate. Just dodge a lot and learn his moves. I found all the boss fights enjoyable, but none easy.

    All the boss fights are just a matter of learning the best way of dodging their attacks, I have noticed though in hard mode the bosses have some new attacks.

    F**k Jaguar Javier is one tough bugger! It's his relentless attacks and constant mixing them up which makes him so challenging.

    Initially I feared I'd never be able to beat him - losing after only getting his health down by 1/4 to 1/3, but as my tactics have slowly evolved and I've learned where and when to attack, I am getting better. Not beat him yet, but I'm confident that it's only a matter of perseverance!!

    Gah - just had a quick go now, and got him down to a slither of health before I made a mistake and he killed me :(

    So close!!

    fair enough, the trick I found with him is that when he does that dash punch (that's what it looked like anyway) you dodge roll into it, if you time it right you'll miss the punch and pop up just behind him before he finishes the animation for it and that leaves you just enough to time get some punches in then you just keep dodging his attacks until he tries that attack again. It requires good timing though but once I got it it was all rather easy.

    The other attacks he does have very quick animations so the margin for error is a lot less.

    Finished now and just trying to 100% each area. I actually loved the controversial Tree Tops section. Really challenging but lots of fun and very satisfying once you successfully make it up.

    Iam finding the item hunt to be a bit annoying due some fiddly platforming, and think I might just go for the end.

    I know I will regret it but I kinda just want to get on and  'complete' the story.

    Edir: the key to Javier is in the dodge on general attack and wall jump when he dash. He doesn't actually have much health once you get him into a combo.

    The amount of health I found myself with after playing a little longer after finishing to mop up a couple of straightforward trophies would have made the final battler much easier!

    @dsmx - did him frist time this morning. The fight was initially going quite poorly, but I got my eye in and took him down pretty easily in the end :D

    Now to find the remaining Chests and Orbs before the final fight!

    Wow - how tough is Tree Tops!?

    Making slow progress - up to the second spoken pole....

    Given up on Tree Tops for now to play elsewhere...

    Quick question - I assume that once I beat the final boss, I can't go back and collect the remaining chests and orbs...?

    @Flying_Pig Yes you can. Once you beat him you can select 'continue' on the title screen and you'll appear just before the final boss, so you are free to go back and collect what you missed.

    not sure it's worth doing though since getting 100% only gets you the "good" credits sequence rather than the bad.

    I found the tree tops really really fun, probably the highlight of the game for me tbh. It is very hard , but it's very clever and rewarding, and there are sort of save points at each 'level' you get to. And it's worth it just for the dialogue with the chicken....

    The only frustrating part I've found so far in the game has been Jaguar on hard mode. That really got me swearing, but it's done now - very close to final boss.

    Just in time for Soul Sacrifice which should be delivered today. :)

    I think I may give up on my quest for all of the orbs/chests. As much as I love this game, Tree Tops is possibly too tough for me and I'm not really enjoying the death matches down in the mine...

    I'm also conscious that I've got SS coming this week, and I haven't played the demo yet...

    Orb quest officially binned - those disappearing platforms in the desert - it's all too much :(

    Off to fight Calaca

    Loved this game, but parts are just too tough for me.
