Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Ginormo Sword is a Flash game where you kill monsters to get money, use the money to upgrade your sword so that you can kill stronger monsters, get more money and upgrade your sword some more.

It is possibly the grindiest game ever and now you will waste hours playing it.

    Ha. I actually clicked on it, but it still had my save. No grinding for me.

    For those not in the know, that red background at the top of the screen? That's his sword.

    Turns out I am missing a dragon, two demons, and a dog. Ugh. I think that's why I stopped playing in the first place, filling the library sucked.

    Macro your left-mouse click then just watch your guy stand on the side of the screen for about 4 hours.

    Argh, why did you have to post this?! I gave up playing it so long ago, and now when I visit the site, it apparently saved my progress... I guess I have no choice but to continue on, now.

    I'm stuck on the Lizard Assassin boss (he teleports around a lot). Any easy way to beat him?

    No, after you beat those you have the second quest to deal with. More grinding!

    ... second quest?

    Oh god this game is going to eat my weekend, isn't it.

    EDIT: Small question, does increasing the elemental level on a sword increase its overall damage too, or just its damage against specific kinds of enemies?

    Wait till like the 5th screen or so. There's a location with "theater" in the name, it's got a flashing disco floor can't miss it. Keep fighting in there you'll run into some fairly easy to beat rare enemies like Valkyries and neko metals and the like. Good early place to grind.

    If you're really lucky there you'll run into the elusive "Neko Platinum" a flashing neon slime. Kick it's ass and over a million gold will be yours.

    2nd quest? Please explain. I still have several billion from the last guy I killed.

  • jothkijothki Registered User regular

    The second quest is stupid. Nothing drops more money than the Avatar, so you'd just want to grid in in normal mode over and over until you can kill things in hard mode...which don't actually give you anything useful since the Avatar drops so much cash.

    I wonder what Luck does...

    Better money drops? More jewels? More rare monsters?

    Anyone know how big of an impact Strength has, or is it generally just better to focus your gold on upgrading the hell out of your weapons untill the cost of raising strength is lower than the cost of upgrading your swords?

    And I think you nailed the issue on this one, too. Get the cheaper one.

    I think the best strategy was to get up to the 13th or 14th area and pump your luck while grinding in one of those spots(somewhere around there is a great place to farm). My memory is terrible!

    Wow. I'm really in the mood for a grinder right now. But probably not this one.
