Here is a guide on how to traverse each map in Latex Dungeon. Spoiler Alert!!!
Also, you are playing a game made with rpg maker, I shouldn’t be the one telling you that it’s intended to be played with keyboard, (arrow keys to move, z and x as buttons), using mouse is much clunkier and may cause complications in later areas
This guide was intended just for traversing maps, but in every case, a little couple of tips about combat:
Each area has a max level cap, if you cannot gain nore exp, go to the next one.
You automatically rescue girls from the monsters you defeat and are able to rescue more from passive seedbeds scattered all over the map.
Girls can be brought back in the church to get a max hp increase.
Losing against enemies will result in your character getting filled with infants of parasitic monsters, giving birth to them will reduce your hp and increase breast size, the latter effect can be fixed via interacting with an healer and is automatically triggered when wearing breast armor or by interacting with a corrupted healer.
Let’s get started
After this sequence, the game will change scene to inside the church, where you’ll finally assume control of the protagonist and sent to rescue captured girls [s]or join them[/s].
There are a total of 6 areas:
Forest – Latex monsters
Cave – Tentacle monsters
Cliff – Slime monsters
Jungle – Plant + insect monsters
Desert – Demon monsters
Spaceship – Alien monsters
Losing in each area will cause your character to be sent inside the breeding grounds map for each, unless you lose against a boss, which will result in your character getting permanently corrupted by them. At the end of the final area, you’ll be sent back to the church, where the final boss awaits.
You may also wanna check the church’s basement, where you can find on a table all the hidden items, you collected during play, as well as a set of room containing each and every previously fought monster and two additional rooms, one for cutscenes and another one that I made for fun.
Now that i pulled out the game’s base, let’s start with the guide, this will only include the mandatory path, and it will no bonus section.
Forest and Cliff
As a puzzle, it’s not really difficult to solve: just travel to the center of the map and you’ll notice your screen taking a purple tinge as you approach a monster peacefully minding her own businnes, get rid of her via a sending her to the shadow realm and the path for the next map will finally open, same thing goes for the breeding grounds area and the maze map: find the purple, stationary enemy, ERASE them and the passage fro the next area will be open.
And about the maze: you are allowed to traverse up to three different tunnels, the moment you attempt a fourth time, it will result in the main character getting defeated and transported to the breeding grounds, to reset the counter, just exit and re-enter the map. Your target is the noxious blossom hidden inside the maze, which will allow you to escape the map and access an optional area. In order to get to it, just take the two entrances on the right and follow the path. After escaping the maze, you can proceed to the exit at the right. the rest of the area is pretty straightforward.
Now that you have finally reached the ruined city, you’ll discover that this large map has multiple choices of where to go: right and left path or inside three of the house, if you take any of the two paths, you will find yourself to a dead end as you will be unable to proceed without knowing the passwords to enter each house. You may wanna start with entering the small house on bottom right of the first map, where you’ll meet a friendly npc who will ask you to retrive for them a pendant in exchange to the password for opening the path to the boss, but said pendant is currently located inside the locked house on the left path so, your next target is gonna be finding the password for entering said house, which can be found written on a note placed at the very end of the one house completely covered with green vines, located at the center of the larger map, get the first code, enter the second house and deliver the pendant back to its probably not so rightful owner, in order to get the last password that you need to leave this place.
If you don’t feel like you wanna explore the maps, then the passwords you need are:
AGAVE for the house with the pendant and BARYTEfor accessing the boss, everything else is optional.
