In the full version are there different bad guys in each level and do they get stronger than the ones in the demo?

Philip_J_Reed

There are the obvious expected recolors, but so far, yes, each dungeon has unique enemies (and bosses). And yeah, they do get stronger. Prepare to do a lot of elemental juggling.

Are you ever able to go back to the demo dungeon and access that L-shaped room on B3F with the 5 treasure chests?

Exactly.

I have an antennaless denpa and he's pretty much a tank, way better defense and hp than my other denpa men.

Meowph, that's right!

I assume so! But last time I checked — which was admittedly a while ago — I still couldn't get to them.

I might not be able to get this afterall. Apparently a simple $20 card for 3DS is too expensive yet my family can get 2 couches, a tv, and laptop just like that... -_-

The title is like some kind of terrible scifi monster flick from the 50s.

So I'm downloading the demo now.

@Philip_J_Reed, how much do the dungeon themes vary? Are they mostly pallete swaps of the cave motif that the first dungeon sports, or do they vary with temple, forest, ect. themes?

This game was surprisingly good. O_O I wasn't expecting much at all.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

So far a few cave motifs (understandable), but there's at least one that takes place in an open forest. As I advance in the game I expect to see more like that...it keeps it nice and varied, visually speaking, but the feel of "dungeon crawling" never quite abandons the game.

When it's their money, that's perfectly understandable

In the demo, it ends going on about other islands... are other islands the other dungeons?

^ I would imagine that there are (multiple) dungeons on the other islands (seeing as how the island in the demo has multiple locations. even if only one of them is a dungeon. There are actually two locked locations on the demo's island, so one or both of them could be dungeons as well).

I've got new information regarding the location of Denpa Men and how they are determined in an area. As we know, the game uses wifi hotspots as an indicator of where you are with the system. I have discovered that certain Denpa Men are set to certain hotspots. For example, I see this one chap by the name of Olin floating around my house every time I look (He's the only one since I captured everyone else). I've checked my house every day since I got the demo and he has been the only one every time so if Denpas DO switch out with new ones after a while, it must take a while. On that same note, if Denpas switch out, it should have to be somehow based in date. I know this (and this is the exciting part) because I had a co-worker grab the demo and search my workplace with her 3DS (just like with my house, I see the same 2 Denpa Men at my work that are always there) and the Denpa Men she saw were the exact same ones that I saw! This means that somehow, based on a number or some type of info the 3DS takes from a hotspot, it has some tyoe of formula for creating Denpa Men from it! I think that is SO cool! So I can be like "hey, if you want a really strong Denpa Man, there is one named Bill that hangs around the McDonalds down the street." I am absolutely DYING for this game to come out!

Oh wow that sounds awesome.
It makes the fact that the game generated two denpas with meaningful names for my household (my dad's name and my brother's idol (Lennon)) even more awesome (though I bet I simply got lucky).

I haven't been able to find any more denpas in my house though, after the fifth they've stopped "respawning" in my house

Meowph, that's right!

@Morphtroid: Yeah, I don't think the Denpas actually respawn. I think each hotspot has like 4-6 Denpas tied to it and that's it. Once you catch them, they're gone and that's that. If there is some type of respawning that goes on it must take at least a few days to happen since again, Olin is the only one that had been floating around my house the last few days. I wonder though...if you catch every Denpa Man in your house if the game will eventually toss you a new one in the hotspot....I'm off to test this theory!

Ok, back from my test. I caught Olin. For the moast part it seems I'm correct. Granted, after Olin was captured, one new guy (although, I MIGHT have seen him flying around on the first day) named Justin appeared. I caught him and was then told to try somewhere else as there are no more Denpas in the area. Just to be certain, I exited the game and then went back in and as expected, nothing! I will continue checking over the next couple days to see if the game will indeed swap in more Denpas after a while but as it stands, it appears as though once Denpas in a territory are gone, they're gone! I imagine I might find a couple new guys if I go to another room in the house as I may be touching a neighbor's wifi then. Oh, and I forgot to say before (although this may already be known) if you let a Denpa Man go, you can find it again in the real world spot that you originally got them. Also, if re-captured, they'll actually remember you and say something like "oh, so you need me again, huh?" I thought that was a neat touch. The more I study this game, the more it intrigues me. This is how AR should be, real world locations actually having an effect on the game and what you find in your surroundings!

I know it's their money but I just find it rediculous sometimes how asking for something like Pikmin 2 for Wii which is only 20 dollars, I end up getting lectured how we have no money for it yet in the exact same day they buy a new flat screen tv that we don't even need cause we already have 1 that works perfectly!

Yep!

How long does it look like this gaming is going to take on average?

I've put in about 10 hours so far with no signs of stopping, so who knows!

Yeah, I don't think the Denpas actually respawn. I think each hotspot has like 4-6 Denpas tied to it and that's it.

Can't speak for everyone of course, but mine definitely respawn. Or, maybe I should say, if I catch them all (or many of them) and check again the next day or so, there's a whole new group for me to catch. Maybe I'm picking up someone else's WiFi signals in the neighborhood, but I'm definitely getting a restocked pool if I wait long enough.

Interesting. I'm still not totally sure so I will be looking into this every day to see (from the same spot in the house of course just to be sure). On another note, 10 hours!? That's awesome! I would have been happy if it was 10 hours start to finish but you're still going. I can see a new 3DS addiction in my future.
