(This guided is still a WIP)

This basic walkthrough of Phoenotopia: Awakening, the bare minimal of getting you through the main game!



(This guide is not complete, but I am planning on updating it on a daily basis as one of my current projects) 
The game can be basically divided into 6 main Regions: 

  • Panselo 
  • Atai & Sand Drifts 
  • Daea 
  • Cosette 
  • Past the First Wall up until Mul Caves 

Please be aware that the length of story relevance does not always reflect to the amount of collectibles in certain regions or something like that. Daea is stupidly large region with many locations, and the final region is mostly just a really large combined-location in itself until you have the thing for the optional area (that gives OP upgrades too, btw). 
The guide is just an infant, and I haven’t slept enough to type coherently. Pardon me. That said, I am trying to fit in as much useful bits as I can, albeit not in the most pretty way. 

Region 1 – Panselo

In Phoenotopia: Awakening, you play as a young village girl named “Gail”. After a brief cutscene, Gail wakes up in her bedroom and is ready for her adventure. 
Before leaving the orphanage, Nana asks you to fetch the kids who went out to play in the forest. Head to the east side of the village and enter the warehouse next to Adar for the Wooden Bat, which you will equip and hit the switch that opens the village gate with. 
East to your hometown Panselo Village is the Doki Forest. As you keep heading top-right to navigate the forest, you meet up with the orphanage children one by one. At last, you find Alex, Amanda and Seth, the last three of the children, waiting at the entrance of Anuri Temple, and they agree to head back as soon as you bring back a falling star that fell into the temple a while ago. 
After the quick introduction of Anuri Pearlstones being the keys of this dungeon, the main portion of Anuri Temple opens up. The layout is more or less just a big circle with small individual rooms as branches, and these branches hold either another Anuri Pearlstone or treasure, or both. 
At this point, there are up to 5 Anuri Pearlstones you can hold, and you only need 3 of them to open the big gate towards the first boss – Slargummy
(I am planning on writing a detailed guide for getting used to combat in this game, please be patient) 
Almost all enemies in this game does not deal contact damage, and experienced players will know when to get up close to attack, and when to stay afar to avoid attacks. Enemies generally wait for about 2 seconds between each attack, and that is where you dash out a few hits before retreating. 
Same goes for this big slime, so before you try to rush in, I recommend learning how to dodge its 3 attack patterns first. 

  • Spike: Sprint-jump away 
  • Whip: Run behind it 
  • Spawning small gummies: Ignore them unless they get close

After you are used to dodging, you may being sneaking in 3 to 6 bat swings between its attacks. The slime should take around 50 hits to defeat, 35 hits if you can perform aerial attacks. Good luck! 
Upon defeating it, you can advance further and find a Mysterious Golem Head. As you bring it back to Alex, a short cutscene takes place. Talk to Alex again back in Panselo Village and then sleep in your room to progress to the next day. 
You next task is to find a golem expert that can understand what the Mysterious Golem head is about. Thus, you leave the village and journey North-East to the next region – Atai. 

Region 2 – Atai
