Kreludan Mining Corp: Forgotten Wonder?
KRELUDOR - The tattered robot struggled to obtain the Kreludan Metal, determined
to get enough money to feed his family, but things were getting entirely too
difficult. The soil was becoming rougher, and the little robot was having the
most difficult time trying to mine around the dangerous alien fungus who had
already shut down at least 4 different miners this week. That's when the brave
robot suddenly got a brilliant idea- he would find someone to operate remote
drones to mine the Kreludan Metal for them!
Kreludan Mining Corp is one of the most underrated and overestimated games
in the history of the Action category. Some people think it's too hard. Others
think it's just a waste of time. But in fact, it is packed with cool things
including music, and it really isn't that bad when you get the hang of the controls-
and learn some valuable secrets. Join me as I try to help you figure out how
great this game is, and hopefully, it won't take a devastating visit to the
One morning, I found that it had 0 plays in the game popularity, and the first
thing I thought was, are you kidding me? You can earn just about 1000
neopoints each play if you know how to control your drone and if you know just
what to do! Why aren't people playing this game much? Well, I hope this article
will open the doors to a new life for this forgotten game. Well, what are we
waiting for? Let's get to the tips!
When you begin, the game puts your drone directly over the Kreludan Metal,
or what I'll call it, the orange orb. To guide the drone, you have to know NOT
to press the keys too long, but simply tap them slowly. If you want to go faster,
slowly increase speed, but NEVER go full-throttle unless it is absolutely necessary.
Remember- there is no time limit on the levels, so you can take as long as you
like to get used to the controls and to stabilize your ship. A good way to learn
how to do this would be to practice in large caverns, like the starting area
in the first level. Get the hang of controlling your ship before you continue
through the levels, because, like any good game, the levels do get harder as
you get farther.
On the first level, all you have to do is simply slowly drop down towards
the orange orb and press B for the tractor beam. A blue line will attach to
the orb. Don't let go of B until you've flown upwards a little and removed the
orb from the ground. Now it's attached to your ship, and if the orb touches
the ground, both you and the orb explode. This is why going slowly will help.
The orb also swings to and fro, making it more difficult to contain it. Sometimes,
you have to try and hover in one spot and try to slow down the wild swinging
of the orb before you return it to the base.
When you have the orb attached, you must fly it into the bright, yellow section
of the base. Now, in some of the harder levels, the base will be nowhere near
where you start off, and you must find it yourself.
Another part of this game is the creepy alien fungus. If you stay
in one place for a while, they'll shoot you with slow-moving but lethal fungus
balls. Dodge the balls and shoot the aliens right on the head. Sometimes, you
can stay out of their shooting range by dropping below where their eye can rotate,
but only if they are close to a gap in the ground. Also, another good way to
destroy them is to fly slowly around so they can't lock on to you, then position
your gun to face them and shoot them quickly. Be careful, though. Try to keep
your distance from them, because if you get too close, you won't be able to
dodge their cunning bullets.
A good thing to do before you retrieve the orb is to shoot all of the fungus
in the level before you get the orb, because it's more dangerous carrying the
orb while trying to shoot fungus at the same time. This tip is especially important
in the later levels, because the base won't usually be where you first respawn.
Now, also, in the later levels, starting in World 3 (the world with brown
soil), there will be strange gems hanging from the ceilings or protruding from
the ground. No, they aren't just fancy next-level decorations, they're valuable
gems! You can get them by facing the rear of the ship towards the gem and sucking
them in with your tractor beam. They're worth 20 points each, and there's a
few of them in each level. Add that up to all the fungus aliens you've destroyed,
and you're racking in the points!
Also, some levels are like a maze. You have to figure out where to go and
which way to turn. Also, there are ways that lead around in a circle, and you
have to choose which way is the better way to go to get to your destination.
Some halls may be wider, and some thinner. But, through thick and thin, careful
observation will lead to triumph.
Are you addicted to this game yet? Hopefully, this article has shown you the
light and has led you to the fact that this is a great game indeed. So, contrary
to the popular belief, this game is, in fact, a great way to earn Neopoints
and great fun, too! All you need to do is master the speed of your throttle,
and how to handle your orb and keep it steady. Once you've learned that, here's
a game where you can easily win 3000 neopoints a day with. Now that's something
to squeal about!
