Hero’s Arms Walkthrough, Tips, Hints, Cheat
About Hero’s Arms Walkthrough
This is our new game, which is kind of a good-old Zelda-like adventure game. We made it very retro-fashioned on purpose, to bring back the “magic” of the 80’s games. The game has a decent length if you want to complete everything in it, which should take around 20 to 25 hours, or more like 10 to 15 hours for a first run just trying to beat it.
You’ll need to defeat monsters along the way of the outside world to find dungeons where quest items (or treasures) are kept safe by big monsters. Those relics are then used to grant passage to the evil Gordzak’s lair, which you’ll have to destroy in order to beat the game. To accomplish this you will need to upgrade your gear and your personal strength by leveling up and finding magic items.

Hero’s Arms World Map – Forest, Desert, Palace, Cave [Click thumbnail below to zoom in!]
Introduction to Hero’s Arms World 1 Enemies and Bosses [Bestiary]
Below is a list of enemies that you will encounter in World 1. Once you have successfully entered Gordzak
Lair and you meet him face to face, he will then send you to World 2. Everything is same but your hero
will encounter tougher opponents and the scenery in forest becomes more dull due to evil atmosphere.
Note: Palace and Castle are used interchangeably. Both are same in this context. Palace refers to P in map.
Click here to view World 1 Monsters that you will face!
Hero’s Arms Introduction and Summary
Hero’s Arms have 4 disguise items to be found. However, 2 are found in World 1, and the other in World 2.
In Hero’s Arms World 1, you will need to search Scout Badge and Cookie Basket to disguise as a cookie seller.
Gordzack have not tasted cookies for long time. So, he will invite you into his Lair to buy your cookies!
To revisit Gordzack’s Lair for the second time in World 2, you need to search Security Guard Cap and
Mustache to disguise as a security guard to prevent cookie sellers from entering his Lair! Hahaha…
During the expedition, you will find some useful equipments and permanent potion booster along the way.
Power Elixir increases EXP [Experience] , Life Burst increases your HP [life] , Mana Burst increases MP [Mana]
These permanent potions are essential for higher levels since most monsters in World 2 deals high damage.
Band-aids are value for money if it applies on high HP and Magic soda best applies on high MP heroes.
You can stock up a maximum of 9 band-aids and 9 magic soda before you encounter any difficult boss.
Note: Both items auto-replenish. Example: If you had 0 HP, band-aid is used to provide full health!
Note: World 1 provides 2 Health and Magic Burst Packs, World 2 provides another 2 more HP/MP Burst Pack.
So be sure to obtain all the Burst Packs in World 1 before you visit Gordzack’s Lair to teleport to World 2.
Reminder: You will not be able to travel to World 1 back if you are in World 2, so collect all weapons and equipments, 2 health burst packs and 2 magic burst packs before completing World 1 Gordzak Lair.
Hero’s Arms Weapons, Shield, Armor
Weapons, armor and shield can be bought in town, some are left hidden in treasure boxes placed in
various caves in both World 1 and World 2. The items sold in town is outrageously expensive. Farming gold coins in World 1 will be slow. If you have sufficient money, purchase the Frost Sword from town first! It provides +100 damage to your attack, and make life easier against high level monsters.
Another good news is World 2 has many treasure chest to be found! Each provides 200-500 gold coins. It’s sufficient to buy a Flame Armor $5000. These 2 items are essential against the final boss Gordzack.
It’s not necessary to buy the Magic Shield because in World 2, you can find Mirror Shield that repels/reflect
enemy fireballs/bullets. Very handy against dark magician. Also, you can find heavy metal armor in World 1.
World 1 Equipments
1. Stick – Basic Weapon. Unable to clear bushes.
2. Sword – Found in World 1 Cave C1 [Forest]. Able to slash bushes. Adds +25 Damage.

Press SPACEBAR to open up your Hero’s Arms In-Game Menu. Notice the 3 symbols for your hero stats?
Fist Symbol refers to Weapon Skill, Thunder Symbol refers to Magic Skill, Heart Symbol refers to Health Skill.
Upgrading Magic skill will fully replenish MP while upgrading Health Skill will fully replenishes your health [HP]
Note: In World 1, invest your EXP points on Weapon Skill because you will be swing your sword all the time!
Weapon skill : Increases damage (most useful)
Magic skill : Decreases cost from magic attacks, increases magic attack damage.
Health skill : Decreases damage received (when upgraded, you’re HP is fully healed)
World 1 Forest : Searching for Sword, Boomraxe, Scout Badge and Magic Burst Pack
First, visit the house to obtain your first Power Elixir and +50 Gold Coins. The power elixir provides 500 EXP. This instantly levels you up. I advice that you do not add any points into Magic and Life [heart Symbol]. Just save your points for your DAMAGE [Fist Icon]. Once you have completed World 1, you will have at least Level 10 Damage [Fist icon]. In World 2, you will be encountering many pig warriors and having less than Level 10 Fist will make it very difficult to attack many high level monsters.
There are 2 routes you can choose. Either get the Boomraxe -> Scout Badge -> Sword -> Magic Burst OR
Sword -> Boomraxe -> Scout Badge -> Magic Burst [I prefer the 2nd way, much faster! I like sword.]
How to access the desert area in Hero’s Arms World 1?
Once you have found your handy sword and purchased the MP burst from the witch seller, you can
now explore further into the desert area, which lies more treasure boxes to be found! To access the
desert, you need to reveal the hidden passage between the forest and desert. To do so, clear the
bushes at the right corner of the map, and use boomraxe to activate the switch from the forest map.
Hero’s Arms Tips/Hints : Teleporting and Discovering nearby Shop
If you planned to return back to the starting point of a particular map, “save and exit” the game.
Load the game back, and you will find your hero back at the starting point with full health and magic!
This also saves time and trouble of walking back to the starting point. For example, you have found a key
in the palace, but lazy to walk back to the starting point, save and reload the game. Your hero will end up
at the palace starting point. This applies to cave as well. However, if you are outside palace/cave/lair, your
hero will be found at your home in the forest location. From there, you can head to the town to purchase
some band-aids and magic soda to prepare against difficult boss! In World 2, there is a Colosseum that
allows player to purchase band-aids and magic soda to prepare for Level 30 Wave Boss. For more information
about the Colosseum, see further in this guide!

Hero’s Arm Walkthrough World 1 Heavy Armour Gordzak Lair
World 1 Completed! Proceed to World 2: Search for Golden Sword
Once you have completed Hero’s Arm World 1, you will be sent to World 2 by Gordzack.
World 2 is basically same as World 1, but the scenery became much more dull and darker.
The monster you will encounter there is much more tougher with more pig knights roaming the forest!
If you had Level 10 Weapon Skill [Fist Icon], it would be not much a problem to kill it in 3-4 hits with sword.
Firstly, visit the old cave where you found your sword. World 2 Cave 1 provides Golden Sword.
This allows you to defeat enemies in World 2 Palace 1 easily since there are many pig warriors and pig wiz.
Click here to view the picture summary of the items that you will obtain after completing World 1.
Hero’s Arms World 2 Cave 1 Golden Sword
Where to find Fake Mustache and Blue Boomraxe?
After obtaining your golden sword, you can now proceed to World 2 Palace 1 without having fear!
The blue boomraxe is found at the same palace where you found your red boomraxe. However, the room
within has changed, and its pretty confusing to navigate. But don’t worry, I have provided a mini map
guide with red path to show you on how to get your blue boomraxe and fake mustache for disguise!
In World 2 Forest, press SPACEBAR to open your minimap. Notice the castle on the top right corner? Pay a visit to the castle. Once you enter the castle, refer to the map/picture below to guide you. Follow the red path to the Blue Boomraxe first, because the room accessing to the Fake Mustache has 4 levers/switches that requires Blue Boomraxe special attack to simultaneously activate all the levers/switches in the same time! Special attack requires MP/Magic, so be sure to have at some MP with you or buy 1 Magic Soda for $50 in case you run out of MP. Note: You can break the pots around the room in hope to find a turkey/chicken to recover 200 HP and 200 MP.
Hero’s Arms Walkthrough World 2 Dual Boomraxe and Fake Moustache
Where is the Security Guard Cap [2nd Disguise Item]?
Remember the place where you found your Round Shield? That’s the place where you will be searching for
your next disguise item: The Security Guard Cap. Gordzack is in need of a security guard to prevent cookie
sellers from invading is Lair. That would trick Gordzack again and make him really angry and he will fight you.
Security Guard Cap is protected by a Blue Squid, similar to the Red Squid you encounter in World 1 Palace 1.
It does the same thing, but it now summons doombat: the bat that can shoot fireballs. Pretty annoying.
After you found your final disguise item, proceed to World 2 Palace 2 to search for your Black Ice Scepter.
It’s the same place where you found your Blue Ice Scepter. Blue Flame can be removed with Black Scepter!

Hero’s Arms Walkthrough – Where is the Colosseum/Coliseum? Colosseum Location
Colosseum can only be found in World 2. Press SPACEBAR to view your mini map. You will notice there are
3 cave. The middle/center cave is the place where you can visit the Colosseum. Bring 9 band-aids and
9 magic soda with you because Colosseum requires player to defeat 30 levels. The final level is the big boss.
Keep training there till you max out all your skills to level 20. Only then, you will unlock level 21 stat.
Each time you complete the Coliseum, you will gained 75000 EXP, which includes all monsters and bosses!
Doing Coliseum twice will help you level up your level 21 skill easily. I suggest you go for Weapon Lvl 21 first!
Once you have at least level 20 weapon skill, you can defeat cutybunny and butterfly easily!
Bring band-aids and magic soda before you attempt hunting both of these wild monsters!
Colosseum Reward – Life Elixir, Magic Elixir, 500 Gold Coins
Colosseum is a good place to farm gold coins. Once you have defeated Level 30 Boss, you can choose :
Life Elixir : Replenish your Health by 4HP every second. [Most useful]
Magic Elixir : Replenish your Magic by 4MP every second.
500 Gold Coins : This is only rewarded if you already have both Life and Magic Elxir.

Hero’s Arms 2 Levers / Hero’s Arms 2 Switches?
In World 1 Palace 1 and some other Palace/Castles, you will find many double levers/switches.
First, equip your hero with Boomraxe [The red color axe found from World 1 Palace 1]
Position your hero in the center/middle of both switches and then activate the special attack by pressing X.
This will summon 2 homing axes that hits both switches. This will reveal either a key or unlock the gate.
Hero’s Arms 4 Levers/ Hero’s Arms 4 Switches?
You will be encountering many rooms with 4 levers/switches. To solve this puzzle, simply equip with
your Blue Boomraxe and press X to activate special attack. Four axes will appear and hit the 4 levers.
However, for this technique to work, you need to stand in the center of the 4 levers.
Blue Boomraxe is found in World 2 Palace 1. For more information on getting this weapon, read above.
How to cross over the lava river to proceed to Gordzack Lair?
Use your Blue Ice Scepter [World 1 Weapon] or Black Ice Scepter [World 2 Weapon] to chill the lava river.
I am stuck in a room with 4 flame [4 fire]. What to do?
Use your Blue Ice Scepter or Black Ice Scepter to remove the flame. This will unlock the door.
I am unable to reach my hidden key within the same room. No access! Help.
Equip with Boomraxe/Blue Boomraxe [preferred] and activate special attack by pressing X.
This will allow your homing axes to retrieve any items including keys from very far visible/invisible corners.
What to do next after beating World 2?
After defeating Gordzack in World 2, visit back to the page where you create your first character.
You will notice there is an extra button: “Create Character+” with a plus symbol. Click that button.
You will notice that it keeps your previous stats but starts the whole game again.
However, you will not keep your previous equipments/items. This makes it a little tougher ^_^
If you manage to max all your stats to level 20, you will unlock level 21. Level 21 requires 99,999 EXP.
I suggest that you go back to your first main account in Hero’s Arms and train at the Colosseum. It’s faster!
Once you have Level 21, you can try out your godly skill with God-like stats which are explained below.

How to farm gold in Hero’s Arms RPG Flash Game [Screenshot]
Ayumilove’s Hero’s Arms Review
I have not played this type of RPG game before but tried MMORPG such as MapleStory and others.
At first glance, it seems like an old game, namely Zelda or Final Fantasy I, II, III.
After playing this game for 10-15 minutes, it felt boring because there is no indication/hint of what the player
should do. After exploring the whole forest, I managed to find a town with villagers. However, talking to them does not give any useful hints such as the location of the disguise items. The prices of each weapon, shield, and armor are outrageously expensive. Farming gold coins in the forest would not prove useful because
monster sometimes drops and sometimes the amount is either large or small. Mostly are small unless you
fight against high level monsters. With this aspect itself, it discourages many players, and to think it more
like grinding for experience and money. -1 point for this.
When I level up, I could spend my experience points into either one of the 3 stats namely weapon [fist], magic [thunder] and health [heart]. But there is no explanation to what each stat does. This puzzles the players which to prioritize first. Player could not decide if they do not know what each stat do, and also
without knowing your character well, its hard to plan ahead on what skill he need to prioritize first.
Thirdly, the map in the game is horrible and difficult to navigate compare to the map shown in this blog.
because it does not show the boundaries within the map. One suggestion to solve this is provide the players undiscovered map but with detailed map. Undiscovered map is highlighted in black, but once the user explored the map, all path are shown. This will make the map much more useful than simply small mini icons that presents little information.
Summary Review [Rating 5/10]
Boss has different types of attacks and show some indicator before attacking hero.
Bushes/Pots dropped random stuff.
Statue provides healing powers.
Treasure boxes rewards player with gold coins/band-aids/magic soda.
– Only 1 town to explore.
– Lack of storyline and side quest.
– No indication to inform user on the things needed to be done. It’s basically exploring the whole map.
– Gold coins dropped by monster are too little and amount varies. Farming gold is difficult.
– Equipment price sold in shop are too expensive.
– Unable to carry many band-aids and magic soda.
– Shop is too far from the main battle : Lots of traveling which is time consuming.
– Lack variety of equipments.
– Mini map somewhat useful but confusing.
– Unable to replenish HP/MP. But this can only be done after completing Colosseum.
– There are no description for each equipment and stat [Fist/Heart/Thunder]
– Lack of skills, mostly slashing and ultimate special attack.
– Axe is pretty weak against a line of mobs in front [with max level 21 weapon]
– Scepter is very weak, deals little damage compare to weapon [with max level 21 magic]
