This is video #21 in my playthrough of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded for the Nintendo DS. Kingdom Hearts Re:coded Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIZ8kn0xML25s4sY35y-C1zAobEAlHWoV Previously, Data-Sora encountered some temporal troubles orchestrated by Jafar in Agrabah. Genie has transported him to the Cave of Wonders, where Jafar has taken Jasmine, but Jafar has sealed up the entrance. But wait, theres a backdoor nearby! Sora can find the backdoor in the northwest of the Entrance area (time 0:26). The upcoming challenge condition requires the use of a Finish command, so I recommend using a low-level Overclock max, or using Ethers to raise the clock level. Unfortunately, I lack Ethers at the moment, so I will have to use the first option. After preparing himself, Sora enters the system sector (time 0:40). This is one room on one floor, and the objective is to defeat three enemies. The challenge is to use a Finish command. The three bug baddies are giant Bandits. Unfortunately, the battlefield is littered with bounce blox and damage blox. Once he has defeated all the enemies, Sora exits the system sector (time 1:42). The available one-time rewards include the Faith finisher, an Adamant Belt accessory, HP +2, Strength +1, Magic +1, and Fire Resistance +1. Sliding Rush commands are also available. Out at the Cave of Wonders Entrance, the mouth is now open (time 2:29). Sora updates his stat matrix. Expanding to the right from CPU 5, he destroys a Bug Chip: R and unlocks Aerial Payback. This allows Sora to counterattack when he has been attacked in midair. This also appears to be on a route to a CPU that has yet to appear on the Stat Matrix. Then, Sora enters the Cave of Wonders (time 3:24). Genie pops out to warn Sora that the place is loaded with traps. Yes, the Cave of Wonders has been warped yet again. I swear, this place is completely different in each Kingdom Hearts game. Sora starts out in the Hall of Beginnings. A Moogle Shop is conveniently located just inside the entrance. In the first battle, Sora gains a Level Up chip (time 5:18). Installing it between two linked CPUs, he reaches Level 29. In the middle of the boulder ramp complex, there is a rare prize block containing a Strike Raid command (time 7:44). Along the eastern hall, there is a rare prize block containing a Land Crash command (time 8:53). At the northeast end, Sora notices a glitch in the sandfall (time 9:45). Yup, theres another danged backdoor around here. A save point also appears nearby. The backdoor is located on a safe platform in the middle of the western boulder ramp (time 10:36). Before going in, be sure to have at least one Blizzard-line magic command for the second floors challenge. Sora enters the second system sector for this world. Floor 1 of the system sector consists of one room, and there are six bug baddies to defeat. The challenge is to block at least 10 enemy attacks. Not too hard. This floor also introduces magnet blox. The glowing sides of these blox will pull Sora towards them. The darkened sides have no effect. The blasted things have impressive range. As for the challenge, there are plenty of Shadows on the lower level that Sora can block safely. The six bug baddies are all Bandits, which appear in pairs on the plateaus. Sora continues through the link to Floor 2 (time 14:07). This is a four-room floor with four bug baddies in two rooms. One is a Fat Bandit in the southwest room. The others are Blox Bugs in the southeast room. The link will appear in the northeast room. The challenge here is to freeze Heartless three times. There are Blox Bugs and Fat Bandits here that are fairly easy to freeze with Blizzara. Then, Sora takes the link to Floor 3 (time 19:08). This floor consists of four rooms with two bug baddies in the northeast room. They are a Fat Bandit and an Air Soldier. The terminal will appear in the southwest room. The challenge is to miss with no more than 14 of Soras attacks. You have to watch with your stray Keyblade swings. Fortunately, there are some lava blox that can be used to your advantage. In the last room, Sora gains another Level Up chip (time 25:26). Finally, Sora exits through the terminal (time 25:32). The one-time rewards include the CMOS Armlet, a Debug Device: R, a Fire +1, a Blizzard +1, a Thunder Resistance +1, and an Aero Resistance +1. Aerial Slam commands are also available. Sora returns to the Hall of Beginnings (time 26:23). Updating his Stat Matrix, Sora reaches Level 31 with his new Level Up chip. He also unlocks another Command Slot Group near CPU 5. He now has six command slots available. Finally, he takes out a Bug Chip: R to the left of CPU 5. Sora saves at the save point in the northeast corner. Next time, he will delve deeper into the Cave of Wonders and hopefully reach the confrontation with Jafar. Thank you for watching!
