In order to offer Ori a happy ending with his family, there are numerous puzzles and adventures players must take on. Some are easy, some are definitely more challenging, but one thing that is promised to frustrate – at least a little – is those giant purple formations. First things first: you’re going to need to have the ability unlocked that allows you to slow down time as well as redirect objects in your path. This nifty little ability is helpful for a lot of reasons but in this instance, it’s helpful in removing pesky barriers. 

Another thing to know before knockin’ those walls down is that the ability to redirect flying objects means that the object will fly in the opposite direction of the player, which means when using this trick to clear baths, you’re going to want to do things a little backward. Take a throwable object and make sure the aimed arrow is pointed in the opposite direction of the wall. The player will then be directed into the arrow’s direction while the object in question penetrates the purple nuisance. Just … again, make sure you have the projective away from the item you want to affect – if not, Ori gonna get hurt real bad. 

And that’s it! Unlock that ability early on in the game and try out a few practice rounds to get comfy and you’re good to go, nothing purple to stop you. Just be warned, this story will pull at those heartstrings much like its predecessor. So, yeah … enjoy! 

As for the game itself, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is available now on Xbox and PC.
