    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.

    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.
