Alice – Madness Returns: Chapter 1: Vorpal Blade, Jumping, Enemy
In Alice: Madness Returns, the vorpal blade, jumping, and enemy tips are going to save you from a lot of trouble in Chapter 1. Here are the things that you should know:
Vorpal Blade: You get this in the first level and can use it to inflict great damage at close range when you have a single target. After you get it, you’ll run into the Insidious Ruin, which is your first group of enemies. Focus on an enemy (using the left trigger on your console) and press ‘attack’ (Square or X on your console) repeatedly. This will create a series of attacks with your vorpal blade and finish the enemies off faster. If you’re being attacked, remember to dodge the attacks. Dodge using the right shoulder button, which you can even do while jumping.
Jumping: During a jump, press and hold the jump button to make Alice Float. If you want to extend the float, press and hold it again. You can do this multiple times during jumps using A on Xbox 360 and X on PS3.
Enemy Tip: If you’re caught by an enemy, you can escape with your Shrink or Dodge move. Also, the Insidious Ruin in Alice: Madness Returns have no defense so you need to finish them fast to thin out your enemies. Menacing Ruin become enraged when they’re close to defeat, so you’ll need to Dodge to avoid getting rammed.
