This is the 2007 game Overlord by Codemasters, not to be confused with the 1990 game Overlord by Virgin Mastertronic.
When you are in Evernight-swamp, go near to waterfall
with the blue minions. Send them into the waterfall and they will
return with gold. Wait for a short amount of time and send them
again. They will return with more gold. You can do this at any
When there is water in front of you or blocking your
path, only you can walk through it. If your goblin minions go
out of the shallow end of the water they will drown, and can only
be saved by blue goblins. Instead of guiding your goblin minions
across a complex path to keep out of the water (which they usually
fall in anyway and drown), simply walk through the water. Your
minions are smart enough not to follow you and will automatically
seek the easiest path to get back to you. Be careful; sometimes
your minions cannot get through because a bridge needs to be activated
(for example, Blue Goblin Cave).
Always have blue minions on guard duty. While on a
guard post, they will actively run into the combat, grab a fallen
peer, and drag their half conscious form over to you so they can
revive their fallen comrade. However, while not assigned, they
will wait for you to micromanage them over to the body by sweeping,
making them almost useless in a large battle.
Easy soul gathering
In order to do this you must have fought Dazzler Beetles
(found in the blue minion cave), Puff Beetles (Evernight), Magma
Beetles (outside of Heavens Peak) and Battler Beetles. After you
have fought at least one of each, they will be available at your
dungeon. Go to your dungeon and choose to fight one of the four.
The easiest way to take out the horde of beetles is to pull only
a few from the swarm and take your time killing them individually.
Green minions work well due to the fact that they are experts
at overwhelming and killing your enemies. Set a marker for them
to wait at and they will eventually turn invisible. Pull a few
beetles and make them follow you to the marker, where your minions
will then jump on them and eventually kill them. Battler Beetles
are good for getting Brown souls. Puff Beetles are good for getting
Green souls. Magma Beetles give red souls and Dazzler beetles
give blue souls. You should get at least 75 souls each time you
completely kill all of the beetles that are in the dungeon.
Use the following trick for fast green minion soul gathering.
When you find the green minion hive you will see five green minions
jump into the spawning pit for you to take control of. Do not
do that. Instead, go to the tower using the gate beside the tree
spawn pits to your right, then return to the green minion hive.
Five more green minions will jump into the spawn pit and you will
still have the ones from before. You can do this as many times
as desired, but after you take the hive it will no longer work.
Easy Rollie Boss battle
Target-lock onto Rollie and start to circle him while
he prepares attacks. After he attacks you should be able to get
directly behind him while he pauses and circle up to his side.
Stand against the tank treads on his side and start hacking away
at him. He will not move or try to attack you. You can defeat
him in each phase of his battle this way and it requires no minions
to do so.
