    Default Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals

    Just wondering if anyone else has this game. I hopefully expect to see some of the regulars from the old Spectrobes Thread here...

    Anyway, I picked it up yesterday. Great game; I've been playing for 17 hours already. It is definitely a vast improvement over the original title, which was pretty decent. As for graphics, it's honestly one of the best-looking games on the DS right now. Also, Mobi Clip Video Codec is way better than Actimagine in terms of FMV quality... more games should use Mobi Clip nowadays.

        Spoiler:- My Progress:


    Unfortunately, like its predecessor, I can see this game becoming one of the most underrated titles of the year...

    So...does this game have a map?

    I never realized how much I liked maps till I played the first Spectrobes.

    Oh yeah.
    If you didn't notice, the top screen in the original title was mainly useless... now they've replaced it with party statistics and a map. All of the action happens on the bottom screen now.

    And I just beat the game. Whoo.
    Final boss battle(s) definitely trumps the old one by miles...

    Where did you get the game? I saw it on the Nintendo site and was like Whhooaaa! Awesome! And could you please tell me if there is any new Spectropes.

    I got the game at GameStop... it should be available at all major retailers.
    And yeah, there's a total of 185 Spectrobes in the game; 112 of which are new.

    You can check out the Wikipedia article on the game, most of which I happened to write myself. :P

    I enjoyed the original game and I'm getting used to this one, Im currently stuck on that green planet (not Daichi, Fons (I think its called that)), and the Krawl there hit hard so I can not excavate any new fossils or minerals! Do I need to evolve my Spectrobes to the evolved level?

    Also, can I have a list of all the games planets and what star system they're in? It will give me some help!(I can't believe Himuro and Meido are not in the game.......)

    As far as I know, you're not gonna get very far with adult Spectrobes.
    Have you cleared the dark lake yet? If you have, there's a whole bunch of dark Spectrobe fossils buried in the dark lake area, which you can dig up after you clear it.
    If not... well, you'll just have to make do with regular Spectrobes for now. Try to evolve them, though.

    Or hey, I could always sell you some strong Spectrobes on the market. :P

    And here's your planet list:
    Nanairo
    Genshi
    Daichi
    Kollin
    Nessa
    Ziba (Akaboshi, Aoboshi)
    Portal 1
    Portal 2
    Portal 3

    Fubuki
    Hyoga
    Portal 1

    Kagero
    Fons (Satellite)
    Darkmos
    Portal 2

    Hakaba
    Nox
    Malik
    Portal 3

    Sorry if I missed any, but that's all I can remember.

    As for Himuro and Meido being removed, it would be nice if they were included as "secret" planets that you could access after you beat the game... or perhaps in a sidequest. Unfortunately there's not much to do after you beat the game.

    Yes, of course.

    I thought Portal 3 lead to what was once Giorna, where Aldous came from....

    It is possible that Himuro and Meido will return in the third Spectrobes game if there is one......... One more thing, if you listen REALLY close to the Hyoga background music, it sound similar to Himuro's music, that's what I think.......


    Another thing, will the cards for the original Spectrobes game work on BtP?

    Yeah, I really thought we'd see Giorna in this game. Or at least, some survivors from Giorna. Besides Aldous.

    Yup. You have to get past a certain part in the game though.

    Also, do you have a friend code yet? Wanna register me?
    My code is 1977-3124-1058.

    OMG :O I loved the first Spectrobes game. I thought the second one came out in Nov sometime.. I need to buy this game as soon as I can. It probably wont be until this weekend >_>

    I am so excited, thanks for making this topic and reminding me about it. I was looking at my DS games yesterday seeing my Spectrobes game. I wanted to play it but didn't want to get too envolved when the new one is coming out

    I will be getting this game and playing it until Ranger comes out.

    EDIT: Nice job on the Wiki! I can't wait to see all the new Spectrobes and the dark ones too.

    Um. Nothing. I just thought it was funny that I had a play time of 41:41:41 at that exact moment that I saved.

    And I'm not supposed to be anywhere, I beat the game a long time ago. >_>;

    Looks like a fun game I might get just have some questions:

    How does the wifi work?

    How long does it take to complete the game?

    Is there more to do after you complete the game?

    Is the game complicated?

    Thank you in advance...

    1) There are five different Wi-Fi activities. Wi-Fi Battle is the first. You can battle with your friends or random strangers. Wi-Fi Market is the second. You can buy or sell Spectrobes at any price you chooose. Wi-Fi Download is the third. With DL Points given to you every Friday, you can download exclusive presents with these points. The fourth is Wi-Fi Upload, which allows you to upload your stats to the Spectrobes Community website and compare with other players. The last is DGamer, which is an online community service. You can chat with other gamers that own DGamer compatible games. Certain achievements unlocked in Beyond the Portals will carry over to your DGamer account, which will allow you to access secret costume items for your DGamer avatar.

    2) It took me roughly twenty or so hours to beat the game. (rough estimate)

    3) There's really not much to do after you beat the game that you couldn't do before you beat the game. The only real feature that is unlocked after you beat the game is the Great Black Hole, which lets you fight swarms of Krawl in order to win special prizes, such as Geos, which summon Ultimate Form Spectrobes. The scores from the GBH are also uploaded to the Community website with Wi-Fi Upload. Other than the GBH, you can complete your Spectrobes Database and earn all fifty achievements.

    4) The game is rather straightforward. If you understand Pokemon, you'll understand this game just fine. There are tutorials at the beginning of the game to help you, but most features are pretty much self-explanatory, if you care to dig into them a bit.

    I got the game a few days ago - just beat it today. Do you know where I could find a list of the Spectrobes in the Database?
    What do you mean, we're out of stuff to burn down? Give me your leg.
