This guide will show you the gameplay basics, tips and strategies of the game Mirror 2: Project X. Mind you that these are the things that are easy to miss in the game especially if you have just started.
This is a quick guide for those playing the initial release and asking things like, “Am I doing this right? Did I miss something?”. Check out this guide to know more.
Beginner Tips, Tricks And Strategies For Mirror 2: Project X
Some important things to note in Mirror 2: Project X have been included below. If you feel like I have left out any important detail then please do mention it in the comments section.
Unlocking The Chapters
Even though the release announcement mentioned something about six chapters, as of 1/22/2022, we only have access to one chapter (in English).
It could be that others have been unlocked in the original language. The original Mirror game requires you to complete the initial chapters before you can unlock the additional ones.
That’s not the case here. If you have gone through the available chapter and are thinking maybe you missed something because the others didn’t unlock, trust me you haven’t. That’s all you have for now.
How To Reach The Endings
The available game chapter has four possible endings. None of them are too great in my opinion. You die in one, you end up enslaved in two, and the fourth is ambiguous.
You are unsure whether you have escaped or if you’re actually enslaved. The question is left hanging. Many of them occur quite high in the flowchart.
This may leave you thinking you may have missed some. Again, you haven’t.
Importance Of The Flowchart
If you play through the game in a systematic/methodical way, you will reach one of the four endings. Most probably you will stop to buy and equip new abilities, skill gems, and to level up your stats.
Quite soon you will reach an ending. It will be like cutscene, flavor text, dump to main menu.
Instead of playing through the game again, you can use the flowchart to see your saved progress and re-insert yourself anywhere you like.
From there you can choose different dialogue options and go through to the alternate endings.
The flowchart also lets you to replay levels to achieve higher scores and hence unlock really cool backstory documents and new skill gems.
When you respawn into the story using the flowchart, your old stats and skills are erased and your character is reset to starting figures.
However you do get to have a cash budget based on the level into the flowchart. So when using the flowchart, be sure to re-equip your character before you enter combat.
Combats are denoted by tiny game controller icons at the bottom of the flowchart bubbles. Clicking on these icons will show you whatever bonus rewards you earned.
It also shows if there are additional rewards that can be unlocked by restarting the level and achieving a higher score.
Game Progression and Unlocking Rewards
When you win in a combat, the next level in the flowchart will be unlocked. What is not so known is that how well you perform will affect your progression.
A simple victory unlocks the next cutscene. If you win an A-class or S-class victory you get much better rewards.
You can unlock rewards including “classified report” backstory documents and adding new valuable skill gems to the store for purchase.
The entire flowchart is out there for you, connected with blue lines. The path that you have taken in your previous run through the game is shown with amber lines.
The “Date night’ and “Final examination” minigames do not give 18+ content rewards as one might think.
Scoring close to 100% with Rita unlocks for you a seductive pose and an announcement that she will spend the night with you.
Doing it with Leah earns a little wiggle-dance and praises for you. I hope that more content will be added later in the game.
You can earn those rewards even with scores as low as 96% as I have done. I’m not really quite sure what the real threshold is.
That’s all I have for you in this guide today. This is my first guide on this game and hopefully not the last.
I was a fan of the Mirror franchise, and that made me expect certain familiar patterns, like finishing a level to unlock the next, to be repeated here.
Imagine my frustration when it didn’t. So I have published this guide to save other people from the same grief. It’s clear that we have barely scratched the surface in Early Release.
I have enjoyed the gameplay and art immensely of Mirror 2: Project X. But that “Six Chapters” declaration pre-release left me a bit confused when I couldn’t unlock new chapters.
And the amber/blue line and importance of scoring well on levels wasn’t apparent at first. I hope my guide made a difference for my readers.
I also have a YouTube channel where I upload the latest gaming content for PC and Android. Feel free to check that out at your own leisure. Got specific suggestions? You can submit them here. Thanks for reading!
