Game by: M.S.T.O.P. (@QuadolorGames)

The beast tribe of Gloo is causing trouble in town and it's up to Rubba to stop them. He isn't really trained in the art of direct magical combat, but he has knowledge of photographic counter-spells. His camera allows him to capture the magic missiles cast by his enemies and shoot them right back.

  • Capture Enemy Magic -- Press (and hold) X

Lessons in Photographic Counter-Magic

Lesson 1

When an enemy shoots a magic missile at you, press X at the right time to capture it into your camera. Each captured projectile gives you three shots of the same element. Press C to shoot the projectile back at the enemy. You can only hold one type of element at a time.

Lesson 2

There are four different elemental types: lightning, leaf, fire, and water. The mages of the beast tribe of Gloo spent countless hours honing their craft in a single element, which leaves them more susceptible to their counter-element. The cycle goes: Leaf → Lightning → Water → Fire → Leaf.

Lesson 3

If you're feeling brave, you can press X while standing directly in front of an enemy who is preparing to cast a magic missile to execute a Flash Counter. The sudden bright flash from your camera with startle the enemy into dropping its missile onto its head, inflicting major damage.
