Chapter 5 Tips

Fire Cave Pattern

The fire cave will have multiple teleportation ports that you'll need to use to get through the maze. There are several items that can be obtained but if you simply wish to reach the boss, use the left teleporter then keep using the next teleporter that appears.

Once you reach an area with an X pattern and four teleporters to coose from, use the right one. Keep following it to reach the fire room's boss.

Save Your Game!

After the final boss in Chapter 5, make sure to make the credits end (watch it or skip it) then save your game after the ending cutscene. This will allow you to proceed to the game's hidden chapter 6.
