Gameplay tips for Figment 2: Creed Valley
As you start feeling out the controls for Figment 2: Creed Valley, you’ll also start to be presented with progressively more difficult enemies. If you’re playing in single player mode, you’ll be controlling Dusty. The green bar on the left of the screen represents your health, and you can refill it by collecting green Endurance Orbs.
One of the first things to keep in mind is that these Endurance Orbs don’t always need to be collected right away. If you’re engaging in a fight and already have high health, leave them alone in case you take damage and need to heal after combat.
Another crucial realization is that you can roll forward through some attacks without taking damage. While boss battles with larger area of affect may make that difficult, individual enemies firing attacks at you can be taken advantage of. You’ll often need to close the gap with ranged enemies, and rolling forward through their attacks can help you get close enough to unleash a flurry of strikes.
If you’re playing in Companion Mode, the second player controlling Piper won’t be leading things. However, Piper does have some significant benefits, including not having a health bar. While Piper’s attacks are a bit slower, they can often approach enemies earlier and start whittling away at health while Dusty stays out of dodge.
Finally, a big thing you’ll need in Figment 2: Creed Valley is patience. Whether it be as you’re navigating a puzzle or engaging in a tough boss battle, sometimes the best thing to do is avoid damage and wait for an opening. If you simply rush in, it can often be disastrous.
We’ll know more about the challenges of Figment 2: Creed Valley when the full game is available, but right now these controls and tips will help you hold your own in the game’s demo. You can find more updates about the ongoing development of the title by following Bedtime Digital Games on Twitter.
