Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is among the hardest videogames on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. This is especially true when playing by yourself for the very first tips. Follow these beginner tips if you want to survive the tough encounters.
Beginner Tip #1: Learn Your Move List
In the beginning of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, you can only perform a limited set of moves. Because of that, you will have a hard time defeating enemies, even in the easiest difficulty setting. However, your move set will expand when you level up by defeating enemies and buying items.
A new move will flash on the screen once you reach the required level. Sometimes, the action may be a little too hectic and you may end up missing the notification. Fortunately, you can see your move list anytime by pressing the start button. Although you don’t have to memorize all the moves in order to beat the game, a few of them, like the dash attack, will make your journey much easier.
Beginner Tip #2: Attack with Interactive Objects
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is full of interactive objects for you to pick up and use as weapons. Not only do they increase your power, the objects also give you more attack range in addition to providing you with a throwing option. The only downside for using an interactive object is that you can’t block. Even so, it is good to pick them up early and often, especially when your attack power is low in the beginning.
Beginner Tip #3: Shop Often
When you level up in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, your base stats for strength, defense, willpower and speed do not increase. Instead, you have to spend the money you have collected from fallen enemies and spend it in shops. Not to mention that food items will also heal you in addition to other boosts. Therefore, you should spend money early and often. Fortunately, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game lets you keep your cash and money even if you run out of lives.
Beginner Tip #4: Conserve Gut Points
You Gut Points (GP) are as equally as important as your Health Points (HP). In terms of offense, you can use Gut Points to perform a powerful Super Attack in addition to summoning a striker. However, you should refrain from using it often on offense.
This is because your Gut Points will replenish your Health Points once it is all depleted. Instead of losing a life, you can keep on fighting. This is crucial because you will have to repeat a world over again if you ran out of lives. Thus, you must save your Gut Points unless you are really in a pinch.
With these beginner tips, you should be able to get by the high learning curve and dominate Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game in no time. This is true even in the hardest difficulty setting of the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 game.
