Oddworld Soulstorm: Quick beginner's guide
Oddworld Soulstorm is quite a difficult game. Sometimes simply completing a stage might prove to be quite a challenge, not to mention saving 100% of the Mudokons along the way. Below we have included some useful tips.
- Stealth is the basis of survival. Abe is vulnerable to direct confrontation, and as a result, the key to success is to avoid detection. We can do that by distracting enemies, bypassing them by walking on the shelves above/below them or relying on sneaking on your toes next to sleeping enemies who normally react to sounds.
- Enemies are not the only threat. Our character can also easily die, for example, as a result of activating a death trap or falling into a chasm after a failed jump. Every action we take should be well planned - it is worth stopping for a while at each new location to get familiar with it first.
- Mind control helps you get through difficult areas. Abe, as in the previous part, can use possession on selected enemies. This can help us in various ways: we can e.g. shoot some fellows of the possessed enemy, make the possessed character go into a trap or get them away from our area of interest.
- Giving orders to Mudokons is significant. The other Mudokons we find are not very bright and, as a result, they can die quite easily. To avoid this, we have to give them orders to follow Abe or stop until a path becomes safe. We won't be able to save 100% of the Mudokons unless we master giving them commands to perfection.
More extensive tips can be found on a separate page: Beginner's Guide.
