Shadow of the Beast 3 - Rules

Keeping it simple for Beast 3 waypoints:

1. In the Forest and Fort you just get points for collecting gold - 100 points per bar. Since gold is always displayed you don't have to take a pic there - anywhere works. The maximum is 2600.

2. In the Caves of Bidhur and Nosthomak you only get points for getting to the end - take a pic at the end of either level. Bidhur is worth 1500 points

Caves of Bidhur - end screen

(Caves with the phiole in the corner!)

3. Cave of Nosthomak is worth 1900 points. You're not required to solve the picture moving puzzle in Nosthomak!

Caves of Nosthomak - end screen


4. If you reach Maletoth (end boss) you don't have to show pics for Caves and Nosthomak anymore.

Pause the game after defeating Maletoth to get additional 500 points per remaining life.



Example with x3 lives
Score: 2600 + 1500 + 1900 + 500 +500 + 500 = 7,500

Tied scores will be resolved by comparing the remaining health. The players with more health will get extra points to put them ahead of their competitor like in Beast II. If health is the same it's a draw of course.

^ Nice first score!

Last year we've played through Beast I&II and defeated Zelek, but Maletoth is still alive.
Let's bring the story to its end:

Quote:

The story so far...

Shadow Of The Beast:

As a small child, Aarbron was enslaved by the Priests of the Beast Lord. He
was tormented for years and subjected to an evil programme of will-sapping
drugs. He eventually had no purpose of his own and totally belonged to
Maletoth, The Beast Lord.
He became the Beast Messenger, a creature possesing great strength and
agility, and he soon forgot his human ancestry.
Time passed and Aarbron performed his duties well, he was a good slave. Then,
one fateful day, he was passing time watching ritual sacrifices when the man
shackled to the alter woke dim and distant memories. Perplexed, Aarbron moved
closer and looked long and hard at the face of the man about to be
slaughtered...
The sacrificial knife plunged down and Aarbron remembered with horror that
the man he now looked on was his father!
As he watched the life blood flow from his body to splash red on the cold
floor of the temple, the memories of his short childhood and the truth of who
he really was became clear to him.
He looked around him at the priests of the Beast Lord and felt hatred. He
swore vengeance on Maletoth and his aid Zelek.
Running away from the temple, cold tears stinging his anguished face,
Aarbron vowed to avenge the death of his father and make them pay for his own
years of torment...
He knew he had a long and difficult battle ahead of him...

Shadow Of The Beast II:

Aarbron fought bravely and battled hard but failed to destroy either Zelek
or Maletoth. However, he had destroyed many armies of Beast followers and was
rewarded by having some of his humanity returned.
The power of the Beast was diminished... but Maletoth remained a dark
threat.
Aarbron drank from a pool of cool clear water. As the refeshing liquid
passed his lips, the pool darkened and grew cloudy. A dull light from its
depths illuminated a vision that transfixed Aarbrons gaze:
He saw a small ramshackle house, lonely and vulnerable in the storm that
raged around it. High on a craggy cliff overlooking the house stood Maletoth
... commanding the storm.
Lifting his arms to the rolling sky he began to metamorphose into his beast
form... a horrific winged demon.
With a cry of triumph he lept off the cliff and glided efforlessly through
the maelstrom to land with dark grace on the roof of the little house.
Inside, a frightened mother moved to protect her baby as the clawed hand of
Maletoth smashed its way through the flimsy roof and reached down.
A baby's cry, a mother's scream and Maletoth flew from the roof and into
the darkness... the frightened child in his talons.
A faint whisper escaped from Aarbrons lips... 'Sister!'
He heard Maletoth speak to him above the storm:
'She is perfect to take your place by my side... on Kara-Moon'
His evil laughter mingled with the thunder as the menacing vision slowly
dissapeared to be replaced by a bright rind of ripples.
Was Aarbron to be haunted forever by Maletoth?
He knew he must journey to Kara-Moon and face unknown terrors in order to
rescue his sister.

Shadow Of The Beast III:

Zelek was dead...
Aarbron collapsed to the ground and slept.
As he dreamed, an apparition appeared before him in the form of a wizened
man. The man smiled.
"You have done well, Aarbron. Zelek was indeed a powerfull enemy, to defeat
him took great courage and strength. The world is now a safer place, thanks
to your valour. But your battle is not yet over. Maletoth, although abated
is still a power to be reckoned with. To be free of his curse forever he must
be destroyed.
I am Rekann. Once magician to the King, I maintained the balance between
light and dark, good and evil.
Sadly, I was lapse. I should have seen Maletoth's power growing and sensed
his presence, but he was clever... very clever. I had no hope, his attack was
swift. Before I could retaliate he had imprisoned me in this Cage Of
Constraint. But now, your defeat of Zelek has weakened Maletoth sufficiently
to allow me to contact you. His dark hold on the world is loosening. We must
strike while we can.
To banish Maletoth forever you must seek out these four items:
The Skull Of Louq-Garou, The Quintessence Of Being, Pendek's Mace and the
Crystals Of Hodag. Only when you have these four entities will you be strong
enough to face Maletoth. Awake now, Aarbron. Awake to face your greatest
challenge yet... but fear not for i shall be with you to guide you along the
way. Awake Aarbron... your transport awaits."
Aarbron stirred. He lay quietly on the ground, contemplating his dream. He
felt different, he felt good. Looking down he saw that his body had changed,
he had regained his human form. Maletoth's curse had left him, he was free!

----------------------------------------------------

From the distance, Aarbron heard the throbbing hum of aircraft engines. He
watched, fascinated, as an old plane flew into view and landed close by.
Aarbron waited... Nothing happened.
He approached the now silent aircraft and, as he neared it, the door
opened. Aarbron jumped back, but again nothing happened.
He looked inside... no-one was aboard. He climbed in and the door slamed
shut. The engine fired up and the plane took off.
Aarbron made himself comfortable. The plane was heading north, towards
Maletoth.

Instructions and Controls:

Maletoth's minions infest the four regions and they will do anything and
everything to prevent Aarbron reaching their master. And this time it's not
simply a case of fighting a way to Maletoth, for the path is strewn with
complex, inticate puzzles, switches, jet platforms, strange machinery and
deadly traps.
You begin the game armed with Shurikans but along the way you may collect
Grenades, Keys, Hammers and Gold to help you in your deadly task.


Selection Screen:

Push your joystick left and right to rotate the level disks. Press fire
when the required level is above Aarbron. You may only access two levels at
any one time: initially Levels 1 and 2 are available to you, however,
complete either and level 3 will also become accessible.


Whats On-Screen:

LEFT - TURN/RUN LEFT
RIGHT - TURN/RUN RIGHT
UP - JUMP
DOWN - CROUCH
FIRE - USE CURRENT OBJECT

Controls:

F1 - SCROLL THROUGH INVENTORY
F10 - QUIT
ESC - SUICIDE (LOSE A LIFE) (you can get stuck with some puzzles)
P - PAUSE

P Pause
The "power configuration" move (<RETURN>) is essential to overcome the barriers in level 1.

Level 2 seems harder than level 1.

Level 2 is an absolute bastard! this is one game where I don't bother with auto-fire, pressing the fire button yields far better results

Pff... I liked Hybris BitD.
Today, even if I still like it, I strongly dislike the colours that have been chosen for the enemies' bullets .

Did someone noticed that it's not possible to move in diagonals in this game ? (in fact 90% of the time)
First I thought it was my joystick that had some issues but the same happens when I play with the keyboard.
During the action, let's say you are moving right (continuously pressing the right arrow) and then press the up or down arrow, the ship will not move in diagonal but will continue to move right. You have to release the right key to change direction... This behaviour is stronger regarding the power-up you have.
Tried on two different computers. Same behaviour. It doesn't prevent me from playing, but it's far from what we can call an optimal gameplay...

OK, after further investigations I have found where the problem is coming from.
If I activate the "auto-fire" within WinUAE, the above mentioned issue appears.
If I don't activate the "auto-fire" within WinUAE, all moves are OK as expected.

Quick question about Beast... do you have to play all five levels in the same runthrough for your score to be valid, or can you submit your best score on each level from different attempts?

That didn't really answer the question John!

Edit: From a re-read of the rules I think I understand now. You play all the levels in one go and if you get to Maletoth, the only screenshot you need to submit is of the final level?
