I. Version History

v. 1.00 - 08/05/2006 - Initial Information



II. Introduction

Entomorph is much more complex game than some might realize.
I've always enjoyed reading boss strategies, especially
to compare methods. When it comes to Entomorph, there is
basically no discussion. Entomorph also has a variety of
difficulty settings, making some of the bosses extremely deadly.

IV. Bestiary

Since Entomorph is a fairly short game, there aren't
that many enemies to deal with. You'll find descriptions,
general locations and strategies for each enemy here. 
As I've covered the bosses in another FAQ, they won't
be listed here.
 


----------------------------------------------------------
a) Mutrizzba 
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Damos Village, Mutrizzba Temple

Description & Strategy:

A kind of flying jagtera. They're large mosquitoes that 
are pretty much instantly recognizable by the high buzzing
sound you'll hear even if they're off screen. They can be
pretty tough enemies, especially since you're forced to
fight a few early on. At higher difficulties the fight in
Damos Village can be almost impossible.

If that's the case, engage them with Mana Bolt from a 
distance, as it will be the only offensive spell you have.

When you face some mutrizzba later on in their temple, 
your Mutalid transformation will be well underway, and
you'll be able to crush them in melee combat as though
they were real mosquitoes.

There are also some mutrizzba that are blue in color,
and move much faster than the red ones. However, their
combat abilities are equal, and they do no more damage
than their regular counterparts.

----------------------------------------------------------
b) Muncher 
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Everywhere

Description & Strategy:

Munchers are one of the most common enemies. They're
large beetles with shiny red shells. They're ridiculously
slow, and attack much slower than you do. One on one 
they pose little to no threat, however in the early stages
of the game they can sometimes be difficult, as they travel
in packs. Pick off a few with magic in that case before
moving in for close combat.

----------------------------------------------------------
c) Red Slasher
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Everywhere

Description & Strategy:

The Red Slasher is the Muncher's big angry cousin.

A large brown beetle with red slash marks on its back, 
the Red Slasher is an enemy that is definitely not to
be trifled with early on. While they're pretty easy to
kill, even on lower difficulties they can dish out a lot
of damage. Since they're quite slow, the best strategy
is generally to run past them. They'll give up pursuit
not too long afterwards.

Later in the game they become a mere nuisance, and
taking them out close up is quite satisfying.

----------------------------------------------------------
d) Wraith
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Eastern Abandoned Village

Description & Strategy:

The wraith is a sort of legless human apparition that
attacks with its fists much like a zombie does.

Close combat is suggested, as they fall quite easily
and are lacking in the offensive department. Note that
you should still try to evade their attacks, as wraiths
damage your mana as well as your health. As mana in
Entomorph can be difficult to recover, you should look
out for wasting it whenever possible.

----------------------------------------------------------
e) Zombie
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Addegun Village, Saltmoon Village

Description & Strategy:

Zombies look and attack like regular humans, expect they
are covered in white bandages, are much slower and do even
less damage. They're the first enemy you face, and are
quite easy to defeat. Later on they're only found in a
few abandoned villages, and are just as easy to beat.

Their attack speed is MUCH slower than yours, meaning you
can get off at least four punches before they land one.
It should be more than enough to take them out.

----------------------------------------------------------
f) Panorpid Champion
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Panorpid Hive

Description & Strategy:

Panorpids are the large bee-like Jagtera found in the
eastern part of Phoros. They're also one of the first
challenging foes you'll come up again. Since, for the
most part, you'll be forced to fight them while in Panorpid
form yourself, the battles can be quite tricky. They're 
as fast as you are, and will close quickly and attack
with their horns.

The best way to fight them is to use your spitting
attack while constantly staying on the move. They'll try
to strafe you, but since you're the one chasing you,
their own spit attacks will generally miss. After you've
defeated the Queen, you won't have to worry about
these guys much anymore.

----------------------------------------------------------
g) Junior Panorpids
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Panorpid Hive

Description & Strategy:

A smaller kind of Panorpid. They're a one shot enemy,
attacking in a room that opens up after the Queen is
defeated. They're physically weak, and are killed in a 
single hit, regardless of the attack. Their strength lies
in numbers; they'll swarm at you the minute the door opens.

Try not to let them surround you, and keep on the move. One
punch should take a few out if they're clustered together.
A spell with a wide area of effect like Whirlwind works 
wonders in this situation.

----------------------------------------------------------
h) Golden Muncher
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Mutrizzba Temple, Keechadachup

Description & Strategy:

Looks a lot like a regular Muncher, only the carapace is
gold instead of red. As you only meet them late in the 
game when you are much stronger, there's almost no
real difference between regular Munchers and Golden ones.

Even if they swarm you they aren't much of a threat. 
A few regular attacks should do them in effortlessly.


----------------------------------------------------------
i) Urthrax (Male)
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: T'Urthrax Ravine

Description & Strategy:

Male Urthrax are the furry white spiders that inhabit 
the lower part of the ravine.

Like all the Urthrax, they're weak in close combat and
easily killed. The male Urthrax has the weakest poison,
and isn't much of a threat.

Take them out any way you like. It's worth mentioning 
that, unlike the T'Urthrax and even female Urthrax, males
rarely use their poison spit.

----------------------------------------------------------
j) Urthrax (Female)
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: T'Urthrax Ravine

Description & Strategy:

Female Urthrax are the furry brown spiders that inhabit
the lower part of the ravine.

Almost identical to their male counterparts in terms of
ability, the female does have much stronger poison.
However, they are just as easy to defeat up close.

Try to close in using a zigzag movement pattern so
their spit doesn't hit home. A hit or two and she'll
bite the dust.

----------------------------------------------------------
k) T'Urthrax
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: T'Urthrax Ravine

Description & Strategy:

The T'Urthrax are the elite warriors of the T'Urthrax
Mata. Compared to the more common Urthrax, they appear as
huge black widow spiders. They're frail in close combat,
but they possess a ranged spit attack that's extremely
poisonous. 

Try to avoid their poison at all costs, as it will last
a long time and seriously hamper your combat ability.
Using your own spit attack or magic is suggested, but
if you can weave inbetween their ranged strikes and close
in, a T'Urthrax will go down quickly.

----------------------------------------------------------
l) Keechda Mongrel
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Keechdachup

Description & Strategy:

They're cute little green humanoid guys. They're basically
friendly, and won't initiate combat unless you irk them
during a conversation. While most are quite important to
the plot, even if you kill one, he'll regenerate later.

There's really no need for a strategy; Mongrels only 
attack with their fists, and are about as strong as 
Zombies, only with less health. Personally, I think they
are too cute to mess with, so I keep things friendly.

----------------------------------------------------------
m) Thelyd Worker
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Thelyd Stronghold

Description & Strategy:

Thelyd Workers are the most common Thelyd. They function
as labor for their ant colonies. There are three different
categories of Workers: red workers, who forage for food,
purple workers, who escort various creatures, and green
workers, who are charged with tending the Thelyd Queen.

Even in your initial form, a Thelyd Worker can be defeated
with a powerful offensive spell. Engaging them in close
combat early on is not recommended. Once you're ready
to defeat the Thelyd Queen, they're easy targets to be
taken out however you see fit.

----------------------------------------------------------
n) Thelyd Warrior
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Thelyd Stronghold

Description & Strategy:

The Warriors resemble large black ants with massive
jaws. Engaging one of these boys in your human form is
suicide. Even later on they can be particularly dangerous,
as they possess a large amount of health and severe
offensive power. 

Keeping your distance is the best strategy. Since they are
quite slow, getting in an attack and retreating over and
over is fairly effective.

----------------------------------------------------------
o) Elite Thelyd
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Thelyd Stronghold

Description & Strategy:

An enhanced Thelyd Warrior recognizable by its red and
yellow stripe. Even more dangerous than a regular Thelyd
Warrior, but are fairly rare, typically found guarding
important parts of the stronghold.

Use the same back and forth strategy to defeat them.

----------------------------------------------------------
p) Mutalid
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Scattered throughout the island

Description & Strategy:

The mean, green kings of the jungle.

Mutalids are among the most powerful enemies in the game.

By the time you're actively fighting them, you've already
become one. They have all the same abilities as you do,
only you're a little faster with a lot more health, as 
well as magic capabilities. They'll typically close in
with their melee attack, a sweeping claw strike that
will knock you back and do a fair amount of damage.

Since you don't possess that knockback, fighting a Mutalid
in close quarters can be difficult. Since they rarely use
their spit attack, a constant barrage of spit while keeping
on the run is an effective tactic. 

If you can spare the mana, a fully charged Fire Ball spell
or similar magic is very effective as well.

----------------------------------------------------------
q) Greater Mutalid
----------------------------------------------------------

Location: Scattered throughout the island

Description & Strategy:

Greater Mutalids are an enhanced version of regular ones,
recognizable by their dark, almost brown skin tone.

These bad boys outclass Mutalids in every aspect. Their
attack speed is meteoric compared to your own, and even
their movement rate is almost as fast as yours. On the
easiest difficulty setting, they can still make short 
work of you in close melee range, and they're far too
fast for the old spit 'n' run tactic.

Use your strongest spells to take these guys out. It
might seem like a waste of mana, but considering their 
strength, there aren't many other foes to convese your
mana and potions for in the first place.
