Reverting to easy mode

While I’ve 1CC’d Imperishable Night and Mountain of Faith on Normal, those are the two easiest Toho games. Subterranean Animism is much harder than those. It quickly became apparent that if I was struggling to pass Satori, then Orin would be pretty much impossible.

Fortunately for losers like myself, there’s Easy Mode.

As you can see, Easy Mode makes 1CC-ing Subterranean Animism quite possible. I think I should be able to beat Utsuho in less than a hundred tries now.

Although I must say, this is somewhat difficult for Easy Mode. Phantasmagoria of Flower View, the other Toho game I have that I can’t 1CC on Normal, is pretty effortless to 1CC on Easy Mode, and I 1CC’d both Imperishable Night and Mountain of Faith on Easy Mode in one try. But Subterranean Animism has had me running into the 50-60 attempt range on Easy Mode. Apparently even Easy Mode is harder underground.

    Just kidding. I still can’t even get past Mugi in SA.

    You mean Yugi? Or are you playing with some K-On patch installed?

    Also, 610, don’t feel bad about Easy Modo; you’re still infinitely more coordinated than me, the guy who regularly trips over himself. If I were female, I’d totally have the whole “clumsy moe” thing going on, but as it is, nobody wants me… ;___;

  5. Sob, I’m old. I don’t have the slightest idea what “1CC” means. (moan)

    “1CC” is short for “1-credit-clear”. It means that you beat the game without using a Continue, as though you were at the arcade and only needed to insert coins once on your way to beating a game.

    This seems odd to me 😛

    I can clear SA on easy, and it is always an easy 1CC for me, but Mountain of faith and IN, I cannot beat 1CC on easy ;.; . I can manage to clear 1-3 on normal Sa with maybe 1 death, and can beat satori without a continue, but then get destroyed on stage 5. I still need to get a good stage 6 strategy for MoF I guess >.>
