You begin on Shipwreck Beach still trapped in a cage. To get out pick up the branch and use it to smash open the cage door. While exploring this area you’ll come across Giant Turtles and water humanoid creatures called Zarchtons. The Zarchtons have a jumping melee attack, leaping over a square to reach you. Take your time searching the area because you’ll soon be fighting your first boss, the Viper Roots.

They pop up from the ground and attack or shoot a poison bolt before digging back into the ground. Each Viper Root takes up 50% of the health of the boss bar. When both have been killed they will drop a Power Gem and both exits to the arena will be opened.
