Touhoumon Another World NuzLocke??
« on: September 20, 2015, 11:47:15 PM »
Hello everyone, I am fairly new on this forum but have been looking at some of the posts for a while. I got into Touhoumon a few years back and played some of the games a little.

Anyway, I was looking around youtube and noticed that while there were some let's plays of some of the different versions I have never seen a NuzLocke of any of the games (I guess they are already difficult enough). Well, I am part of a Youtube group called The Backroom Crew where we have podcasts and play video games.

One of the games I just started on the channel was a nuzlocke challenge of Touhoumon Another World and wanted to know if anyone here would be interested in giving it a watch.

Please let me know if I can do anything to polish it up and make it better I also eventually want to play Touhou Puppet Play 1.8 Enhanced on twitch stream if anyone would be interested in that. The link to the video is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch_bwfjZmU4
 and Thank you in advance if you can watch it.

Word Link/Another World are pretty bugy and unbalanced. I saw few touhoumon runs on Nuzlocke Forums :V

Considering ZReimu exist, I would say Another world is impossible to nuzlocke unless you actually get a ghost in the primsriver mansion, and assuming you grind for days.

I would recommend looking for less ridiculus hacks or easier versions. Ordinary is more balanced even with certain spikes, and from what I've heard, blue version is supposed to be a "easy version"

I've seen a Nuzlocke of Enhanced and Purple done by the same person (I think it was TheDepressedEeyore).

I'd recommend you look at the game's level curve and to not do Another World blind if you are going to do a successful Nuzlocke challenge (although blind plays are more fun). If you haven't already, pay a visit to Agastya' Nitpick Zone (http://lkaexe.supersanctuary.net/nitpickzone/) to get a feel of what you're up against.

Enhanced is not as hard, but again, looking at its level curve, which I posted here on the forums (http://thpp.supersanctuary.net/forum/index.php?topic=480.0), also helps.

Wow thanks, I remember playing it a few years back and thought it was buggy but that it had gotten patched. I'll look into some of the other games and try them out. All in all I really just wanna do a nuzlocke of touhoumon, if it's a better version than that only helps.

A good list of Touhoumon hacks can be found here http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Touhou_Puppet_Play
The list is almost up to date, with the exclusion of Touhoumon Unnamed made by DoesntKnowHowToPlay.
If you're looking for a good hack in the 1.5 generation to Nuzlocke, one that's fair and balanced to do blind, I'd suggest Touhoumon Blue or Merry. If you want to try your hand at a 1.8 one, I'd suggest Purple. Unnamed is a challenging one, but I've heard reports that doing it blind is literally a suicide run.

you probably wont have fun. play the game normally first.

a blind nuzlocke will put a bit of pressure on you if you're more concerned about completing the game, so you may either overgrind and trivialize things or just get annihilated and burn out on trying to play the game again.

unnamed is very, very rude. i love the game but i do not recommend a blind playthrough to be under nuz rules.

I know a couple of people that have tried to nuzlocke Touhoumon Another World and all of them have failed after hours of repetitive grinding, there are some tricks to get through it with marginal safety but the catch first encounter on each route kind of defeats any hope of that.

That being said I did actually enjoy the game when I first played it and even made a route to speedrun it eventually getting stupidly lucky and beating the game in about 6 and a half hours. Complete with exploiting a glitch to skip Reimu, buffing up to +6 defense on most fights just to avoid getting one shot and PP stalling.

A thing to note about the game is that there is a programming error with the dream stone trigger where sometimes you are given the Dream Stone but the bed event wont trigger and you are stuck forever with no way to undo it other then delete your save and try again from the start.

In summary, had fun got my record never going to play it again. Well... maybe if someone beat my record but I highly doubt that will ever happen, let alone anyone even try.

WHAT IS THE GLITCH.

also, i've been curious. Would randomizer tools work on Another World/World Link? I remember they shift data around some so I don't know if it'd still work.
hopefully it doesn't count out-of-dex mons when deciding teams, so a nuzlocke of it might be possible by virtue of not having broken crap.
