Kingdom Hearts II

I’m in Halloween town where there’s a sign on Dr. Finklestien’s wall that says, “After modifying the drain, climb over it to…” . What is the rest of the sentence and what does it mean, or what am I supposed to do?

Games Guru: I don’t think it means much of anything, except maybe to Dr. Finkelstein.

I can’t beat the Cerberus Cup. I get to the last level and I run out of time. Help needed!

Games Guru: You and me both, pal. My experience was that Cerberus ran away and I ran out of time. As I understand it, the tricks for beating this demon pooch appear on the screen-Evade, Jump-Dog Paddle. Words to live by. They will leave the monster mutt temporarily stunned, giving you a chance to strike.

How can I get lots of points in the tournaments, and how do I unlock the third paradox cup?

Games Guru: If we’re speaking about the Cerberus Cup, you will need to clear the Agrabah, Pride Land and Halloween worlds before you can enter.

What is the best way to get points in the Cerberus paradox battle? Also, where do you get twilight stones for Goofy’s shield?

Games Guru: A lot of people have trouble with this level. The best advice I can give you is to level up before you enter, and arm your keyblade with the thunder and magnet. As for the twilight stones, try taking them from nobodies in the World that Never Was.

How do you defeat Demyx in Hollow Bastion?

Games Guru: As it turns out, you never really fight Demyx. The trick to beating this rather timid bad guy is to destroy 100 of his water minions in 80 seconds. That may sound hard, but take heart—these guys are weak. In this battle of quantity, the trick is to use the “Wild Dance” reaction whenever the prompt appears. This will allow you to kill many minions at once.

It’s tough to find all the “Orichalcum+”es. I have one from the Hundred Acre wood, one from the throne room (Land of Dragons) and I understand I get one from the “goddess of fate” cup. Where can I find the others?

Games Guru: Square Enix was kind enough to give us a complete list of places to go for Orichalcum+:

  • Central Computer Mesa
  • Sunset Terrace (L4)
  • The Brink of Despair
  • Finish Starry Hill
  • Finish A New Day is Dawning
  • Finish Goddess of Fate Cup

  4. It says in the menu what you have to kill for leveling up forms.



    Master-Drive Orbs


    Everytime you use Valour or Wisdom, you get +1 and everytime you use Final you get -10. Get +10 and you turn into Anti-Sora. I can’t remember for sure, it’s something like that. 😛

  9. to pikka boy yes

  10. for riptide, it took me 7 trie to kill him but all I did was enter the fray at level 99 [just be past level 79 though] and always remembered to use the reaction “block” when you can. whenever in the air press square if your knocked down then attack and repeat. when he says “perish now” keep gliding or dashing away from him. whn he says “sin heartless angel” find and attack him. if you dont you will have 1 health left then you have to use block and thn immediatly heal. if you see blue orbs kil them. when he says “give into the dark” use glide and stay away from him. whenever possible constantly attack him.when your health is low heal yourself. if he turns pink he becomes stronger and faster. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
