Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition Walkthrough
Table of Contents
Say hello to General Ikkaku, leader of the green samurai. A new unit appears in this stage – the Salamander Monk. These fire-spitters won’t just support Akamoto, they’ll burn those green armies down.
Rush down and capture the Salamander Shrine with the Soldier Shrine below. Capture the lower set first, but send cavalry up and capture the Salamander Shrine at the top of the battlefield too. Once a Salamander is summoned, Akamoto will instantly have a helper.
Salamanders have very high attack power, but very low defense. A single attack from most units will take off 5 out of the Salamander’s 6 health points. Keep them safe, and feed them skulls to make them a real force on the battlefield.
Clear out the stragglers that attempt to move on the red army, and eventually the green General will awaken to lead the advance. Now’s the time to abandon posts and regroup. Feed Salamanders skulls whenever possible and keep far away from the General until he’s close to Akamoto – leading enemy generals to Akamoto while retreating and hitting them with arrows is always a simple tactic for victory.
There’s always a catch to that tactic – if the enemy General manages to kill red samurai, he’ll eat the skulls and become more powerful. Always play it safe. If it’s better to retreat than to attack, do it to stay out of his movement range.
