Survival Mode
To earn extra money, Horn can compete in exciting, Challenge-based fights in special zones called Survival Rooms. Each Hub has a unique Survival Room, where Horn can go to battle the enemies that inhabit that hub and stand up to dangerous and rewarding challenges.

Finding the Survival Room

Survival Rooms are marked with a yellow sunbeam and are unlocked by beating the first two missions in a Hub. Survival Rooms only have one mission, and selecting that mission will take Horn into an arena and raise a prompt to select a special challenge.

The Challenge Wheel

Upon entering a Survival Room, Horn will be presented with the Challenge Wheel. While in the Survival Room, Horn must adapt to a series of challenges that are randomly applied to the room through the challenge wheel. To spin the wheel, swipe it on the screen. The challenges will spin, and a random challenge will be presented.

At this point, you will be given two options: Accept or Respin.

  • Accept: Accept this challenge and spawn the next enemy.
  • Respin: Pay 100 pygite to respin the challenge wheel in order to try to get a different challenge.

After accepting a challenge, an enemy will spawn and the battle will survival will begin! Horn can fight for as long as he is able to survive and continue to earn money.

After a Battle

If you survive a battle and successfully complete the challenge presented to you, you'll be given the option to continue or finish playing challenges. Selecting continue will risk the bonus money you've earned so far to gamble for even more money, while selecting "Finish" will pay out all the money you've earned and return you to the Hub.

Hubs
