In this episode, I return some Bowlerflies and explore Dead Grove village... and that's it. They have a LARGE library and I have to read everything :P

ALSO, I got to the point of no return, where I'm stuck, the next video is the last one unless someone can help me. I might even try downloading the game again and seeing if it works then, or maybe even try playing on a computer with less lag to see if that's the issue.

This is my debut let's play, so I hope you enjoy it!

[the player checks the first book shelf]
ALBERO: [reading] "'The Two Moons of Novus Vita' by Golden Enjit Publishing ... Our planet, Novus Vita, has two moons, Lunari and Azarath. But, unlike most moons, these two disappear when you get within several miles of them. It is believed that the great Guru who created this planet made the two planets as the afterlife. Lunari was designed to serve as a place of relaxation for those who were good in their life. Azaroth was designed to serve as punishment to those who served on the side of evil."

'I know I can beat you, punk' said our hero with true words of sheer confidence. The two villains merged together to form an ultimate supervillain.

From gamemakergames.com:

You play as Albero, a cute white Malbio that used to serve as the guardian to the Great Blue Emblem. The emblem is a great source of magic. It alone powers the sky and gives it its blue color. However, another guardian, also a Malbio, is one day consumed with a lust for power. As he begins to steal the emblem's power, Albero breaks apart the emblem, scattering its pieces throughout the world. Furious, the evil Malbio throws Albero from the tower.

Albero survives the fall, but now he must journey the world in search of the pieces of the Great Blue Emblem. On his journey, he meets and helps many inhabitants of the world. Many friends also later join him in his epic quest. As they search for the missing pieces, they learn of an evil, sinister conspiracy that threatens to corrupt the entire world.

This platformer is mostly about overcoming obstacles while avoiding monsters. You jump around, use special abilities, switch characters and collect items. It doesn't sound very intriguing on the surface, but the game offers a great deal of variety and many places to explore.
