About the Into the Depths
Shinsekai: Into the Depths is a two-dimensional side-scrolling, adventure game taking place in three-dimensional scenes. The player character works his way through a series of underwater environments, each containing a mix of puzzle and combat encounters. To overcome these challenges, the player has access to several tools and mechanics.
Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for smooth gameplay.
- Pay attention to your oxygen level
If this isn’t the most important thing to know when playing Shinsekai, then it’s certainly up there. Your oxygen essentially plays as your health. There is a booster that allows you to jump higher and faster, but by using this, it will cause your oxygen to drain.
This is the main way to get your oxygen used up but it is necessary on many occasions (and it’s fun to use). The other you’ll get killed is by getting crushed by ice like we mentioned or getting killed by an enemy. A foe will do so by cracking the glass on your suit
- Be observant
Yes, I know you’re trying to move at a fair pace to avoid the ice, but while you’re moving, try to pay attention to your surroundings. There’s a possibility that you may find something of great worth. It could be a much-needed oxygen tank or even a new weapon among other things.
Grabbing oxygen tanks will basically add an extra health bar to your character. Or it might be one that refills your lone tank. And the weapons you find can be very useful. One you will encounter early is like a gun which obviously is great for long-distance enemies.
- Make sure you save
This kind of goes back to being observant. As you explore, you’ll see some save points that along the way. Make sure you save at these locations. You can’t just pause the game and freely save. The only way you can do so is by finding these checkpoints.
The hope is that you don’t die before finding the next one (unless you didn’t get far from your last one). That’s always pretty annoying when you have run, climb and fight your way to the checkpoint that you were so close to. This actually happened to me.
