How To Take Down The Izimu [video]

Taking down the Izimu!


Spoiler Alert: If you’re not interested in finding out how to defeat the first Izimu (Shadow of the Colossus-type bosses) in Voodoo this article is not for you! To be fair, this is a pre-alpha version of Voodoo and the Izimu will be slightly tougher when the full game is released.

Battling the Izimu

We caught up with KrazzykillaB who streamed his defeat of the Izimu a little earlier. Here’s what he had to say about the Izimu battle gameplay.

.

Q: What was battling the Izimu like?

.

Krazzy: Fighting the Colossus was super fun! Something very new, very unique, and exciting! The music made it that much more intense.

.

Q: How did you know how to defeat the Izimu?

.

Krazzy: While fighting the Izimu I saw 4 targets. 2 around its head and 1 on each knee. I figured that if I shot the target on its knees, the Izimu would fall down for me to shoot the targets around its head.

.

Q: What do you think is lacking from the Izimu fight that would make it more enjoyable?

.

Krazzy: A slingshot to shoot at the Izimu with! But really, it all felt very balanced, very smooth; it was not too easy and not too hard. It was a challenge.

.

Well, this is what he said when he had already defeated the Izimu twice!

Needed: Audio For Izimu Battles…

We couldn’t be happier that players can already enjoy Voodoo through our Kickstarter campaign. However, If you watched the video with the Izimu battle, one thing in particular is killing the vibe. As creators and gamers it’s all too clear.

.

While the soundtrack is pretty amazing (gothic meets tribal!) the Izimu itself is missing proper audio engineering to really immerse you in the experience. You can’t hear the roar of the titan, the quaking when it stomps, and the avalanche of its apocalyptic fall from power!

.

Audio is an important part of a rich experience and that became even more apparent when we watched this gameplay video. We’d probably become numb to it ourselves. Here is a clear example where community feedback is so vital for game development.  Please support our Kickstarter campaign so we can improve these types of aspects! The devil — we mean Izimu — is in the details!

By the way, Cryptic Hybrid also battled the Izimu but so far has been less prosperous against its massive powers 😛
