    This may not seem like a big achievement to most, but I had this game for years and have completed it many times, but never rescued all the mudokons. Well, tonight, I accomplished the feat of rescuing all 99 (well, 100 if you count Abe) mudokons. It took 11 hours and countless 'I wonder if there's anything down that.........Nope, just another death' moments.
    Felt I needed to share...

    (Oddbox from Steam which is why I started playing the game again)

    Well done!

    Been there, done that, probably still have the savegames on a backup or something;
    couldn't do it on Exoddus though...

    Yeah, isn't there 300 to rescue on Exodus though? Only ever went through it once. Need to rest for a while and revel in my glory before attempting the nigh impossible.

    Thanks for the heartfelt congrats... :-)
    Would have helped had there been a "there are this many mudokons on this level and you have rescued..." like on the first level, essentially.
    And Gearskin, I haven't tried Strangers Wrath as yet as I have Exodus and Munch to go through yet.

    Congrats, been playing these myself lately and its certainly not easy.

    I would say its actually easier to get all 300 on Exoddus , the higher number is mainly accounted for by there being bigger groups of mudokons then in Oddysey , plus you can lead them in a group rather then having to move them one by one. Most importantly of all Exoddus has the godsend of quicksave.

    Good work. I love that game, can't remember how many I rescued, but almost certainly in the nineties.

    Gotta say, quicksave almost feels like cheating after Oddysey. Finally rescuing 3 mudokons after a lengthy, tough timing section on your 12 attempt only to die foolishly on the next screen and having to repeat everything. Well, I guess that's part of the charm.
