‘Adventures of Mana’: Top 5 Tips & Cheats You Need to Know

Here are the top five tips/tricks/cheats you need to know for Adventures of Mana.

1. The Basics Behind the Ring Menu

Adventures of Mana

• A familiar element from the series, the “Ring Menu” once again appears in Adventures of Mana. Tapping the icon will open the menu in a ring formation so players can change their weapon or equipment without the need to switch screens.

2. Utilize the Shortcuts Mechanic

Adventures of Mana

• For a smoother journey, players should utilize the newly implemented “Shortcuts” feature, where they can register up to four frequently used items or weapons, making weapon-swapping and item use during battles a breeze.

3. Check Your Inventory for Solutions to Roadblocks

Adventures of Mana

• Various obstacles may block the player’s path during their adventure. If players find themselves stuck in a room and cannot open the door, or an area with no clear path, they should check their inventory and spells. Items such as a mattock, chain flail, sickle, or a Blizzard spell may be the key to resolving these issues.

4. Wipe Out the Baddies in an Area to Get the Item You Need to Proceed Further

Adventures of Mana

• If players find themselves without a keyring or mattock in certain areas, take some time to battle monsters in the area. There is a one-in-four chance the items needed might drop from the defeated monsters.

5. Keep an Eye Out for Easter Eggs…

Adventures of Mana

• For the first time in Adventures of Mana, players will be able to see the Dark Lord without his mask on. This content was originally developed for the Game Boy version, but was not included due to system capacity issues at the time. Somewhere on the game’s map, players can listen to the track, “Town Theme,” a BGM track that was also previously not included in the Game Boy version due to system capacity issues. If players type “knight for a day” at a specific location in the game, something exciting may happen… (What will happen is a surprise for those who play the game.)
