Maybe the trickiest game of the tournament is Whirling Blades, a mouse-only game where all items are used automatically. It can be difficult to understand exactly how things works in the fast-paced action, yet there is a lot of depth to uncover. Let's figure things out together!
Please share in the comments section any info or correction you have, I'll update this post accordingly.
|Blueberry||Bushes with visible fruits||When the energy bar is depleted||Refills the energy bar|
|Apple||Trees with visible fruits||When the health bar goes below a certain level||Refills the health bar|
|Seeds||Fruitless trees & bushes||When walking on a corrupted tile||Reverts the tile to normal grass|
|Gel||All enemies||When item count reaches a certain value||Upgrades the weapon
- First upgrade = 60 gel
- Second upgrade = 150 gel
- Third upgrade???
|White insect||Simply runs towards you. May randomly transform into Double spike creatures. If you're cornered, they can deal massive damage due to no attack cooldown.|
|Double spike||Does not move. Fires artillery strikes that corrupt tiles.|
|White mask||Moves slowly, shooting purple boomerangs at you.|
- Corrupted tiles: They slow you down, and destroy any living plant on them. Corruption spreads with time to neighbor tiles. In the early game, you can delay the spread of corruption a bit by restoring grass as soon as you can with your seeds. More generally, clear the spike enemies early to prevent them from firing their corrupting attacks.
- Dashing: Useful not only for escaping monsters but also as an attack. Actually seems more powerful than the basic attack.
- Item gathering: It doesn't seem like plants or fruits grow/spread, so gather everything you find as fast as possible.
- Saving blueberries: Technically your energy bar resplenishes automatically, so if you're careful with your clicking, you can save blueberries for later… But to be honest the blueberries rarely empty, so click away!!!
