F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is a Metroidvania style side-scroller game where you play as Rayton the rabbit, armed with a mechanical fist, drill and whip. The game will see you exploring Torch City as Rayton, fighting against the Legion and meeting different characters to guide you on your mission.
None of the trophies are missable as after the final boss you can reload your save and travel anywhere in the city. I recommend collecting all the weapon, health (HP), stamina (SP) and ability upgrades (EP) before taking on the final boss - you will know when you are approaching this stage as your objective marker will be in Lower Torch City.
You start the game with the fist and will later unlock the drill and the whip. Each of these give you different attacks and allow you to open different doors. You can cycle through the weapons using and but I would recommend using the d-pad as this will make your life easier when you come to do Martial Arts Heir as you'll be in the habit of using for the fist, for drill and for the whip.
As you progress you will unlock four abilities/devices which you can select with , using these will consume one bar of EP (the orange bar at the bottom of the screen). See Unlimited Energy .
These will consume one bar of SP (blue bar at the top of the screen). You can upgrade to a maximum of six bars see Endless Qi .
As with the above you can increase your max HP (red bar) with upgrades, see Indestructible . You can also get an extra temporary 2 or 3 bars added on by eating at Chuan's noodle shop in Joffre street. Once these are depleted you will need to eat noodles again. I only did this for the final boss and I ate a bowl of chili noodles to add 3 bars.
EP, SP and HP can all be restored to the current maximum by chosing the repair option at a save point machine.
Chuan's Noodle shop on Joffre street.
Not only is Chaun a skilled maker of noodle-based dishes, he will also reward you for eating them! For every 3 bowls you eat he will invent a new dish, you will have to leave the area and return for them to appear on the menu.
- Eat 3 plain noodles - get EP compound
- Eat 3 mixed noodles - get SP essence
- Eat 3 classic chilli noodles - get Woof-Woof poster
- Eat 3 cabbage noodles - get a Mystery Shard piece
A little way into the game you will have access to a map, which you can view with . Make use of this to see where your objective is which areas of the map you are yet to uncover. Very helpfully, Demajens has created all of the maps with their collectibles in Google Drive: LINK.
Step 1: Follow the objective markers on the map, explorer everywhere that you can
As this is a Metroidvania game you will have to return to parts of the map, once you unlock the ability that allows you to progress into new areas.
If you visit everywhere and collect everything, you should get:
Survival of the Fittest
Weapon of the Legion
DO NOT ANSWER! DO NOT ANSWER! DO NOT ANSWER!
Turing Test Failure
See Me Not
Shelter from the Blizzard
Weapon of the Resistance
Bitten by a Mutant Spider?
A Breath of Freedom
Martial Arts Heir
Toe to Toe
Unsafe to Possession
One Step Away
There Will Be Blood
For the New Dawn
Step 2: Collectibles clean-up
Even if you went everywhere in step 1, you won't be able to get the below trophies until after the 'big' boss fight as you won't be able to 100% explore Upper Torch Tower until then. You will also need to return to the Coastal Fortress to collect the poster at the top.
