I don't think there is one. The game is pretty lacking as far as extras are concerned. A sound test would have been nice.

You need a weapon with the hammer icon, and the required ingredients to upgrade it.

I see. So where do I get weapons with the hammer icon? Do I get them from enemies or rewards for beating stages?

They drop from monsters.

Ok. I'm having trouble trying to S rank a A Guest and a Runaway. The scorpions block my attacks and the desert sharks attack me and I have no way to get them out. How do I earn a S rank on that stage?

Haven't got to that part yet, but mainly time, damage taken, then highest hit combo are biggest factors.

Hit generally is low amount of points, but should come naturally working on low damage.

Less than 100 hit combo is around 100 points, 180 hit is about 190 points. Low amount of score here.

Damage taken is 500 point if no damage, taking minimal damage drops it to around 380, then less for more damage taken.

The majority of points are gotten with low time limits.

S rank seems to be between 1400 and 1500 points.

For strategy there, Plume's Square Square Square Down+Square works really well in butt-bumping enemies into a stun, and enemies that go flying also become a temporary projectile weapon of sorts. Works wonderfully on wolves.

For the sand fish, you can knock them out of the sand if you swing at the right time. You can also jump or block (block works for all direction, not just the way you are facing, but will end your combo) and them come out of sand for a bit, though with an odd period of invincibility just before they attack.

Also you could use X+Square if full SP to clear most of the screen, or simply Down/Down-Toward/Toward Square for the shrimpions if only 1/2 SP.

The biggest enemy will be time, so make sure you are able to kill quickly with minimal hits, ignore all drops, and if you score around 1200 decide if you can get an extra 200-300 points from high hit/low damage taken, of if your times are simply not low enough.

Hope this is helpful and somewhat correct.

I'm a little disappointed, they promise high speed combat, but it doesn't feel too fast unless they mean the boss battles when a mob of allies join in.

I really don't remember the term "high speed" being thrown around...

Just to correct a few things I said earlier:
Scoring is based on time, damage taken, highest hit counter.

No damage is 500 pt bonus.
317 or greater hit combo is 1000 pts.

S rank is 1500 or more points, with a higher "master" tag added for no damage.

Easiest way to S rank:
Spoiler:
Plume; Square Square Square Up+Square combo, can continually juggle dead enemies if you have trouble maintaining a combo. For siege (boss) battles, simply finish fast for S rank. For combat and skirmish, combo 317 and then finish fast. Easy.


Best farm tactics, locations:
Spoiler:
Experience: the beginning section of subspace 4, with wolves. Can die in 2nd section or 3rd section lava if you wish to keep levels. Do not "give up" from menu else forfeit your levels.
Items:Side Story 11: Sometimes find Ralges(sp) wing as drop, +20 str, +50 fire element. Beyond the Abyss, get pure electrorock +12 attack +20 electric element as stage reward, +1 skirmish reward.
Honor: Side story 11 or Mock skirmish (since you also need 100 skirmish wins). Mock Skirmish can be won without pressing any buttons if your squad is 99 level.
Upgrade items: Beyond the Abyss I got a sword and an axe, forgot the names off hand but I think the sword started with an "s" and the axe with a "c." Both can be upgraded simply with items sold by merchant.


All the above should be done on NG+.

Hope this is accurate and helpful!

Got the game last weekend and I already predict the skirmish battles will be giving me some trouble. Other than that this looks to be a fun Vanillaware style game as I expected from watching the images and trailers.

They get easier once you train your units up enough. ^^ A little grinding should see you through the whole game.

Ah, and don't forget to enhance items - getting a bonus of +100 elemental damage (or more) can REALLY make things easier. XD
