Pursuing The Octopus

Just when you thought the hardest part was over, having located the missing Beluga, “Dave the Diver” throws in a thrilling underwater chase that tests your speed and agility.

  • The Antarctic Octopus swiftly darts away, initiating a high-speed chase through the Glacial Maze.
  • Quick reflexes and a good understanding of the maze’s layout are crucial for this challenge.
  • The Octopus aims to lose you amidst the maze’s icy passageways.
  • Falling icicles pose obstacles that need to be dodged during the pursuit.
  • Icicles can hinder progress and allow the Octopus to gain distance.
  • The Octopus occasionally releases puffs of poisonous ink, which can obscure vision and slow you down if swum through.
  • Avoiding the poisonous ink clouds to maintain speed and visibility is important.

Options After Cornering The Octopus

Once you’ve skillfully maneuvered the icy passageways of the Glacial Maze and managed to corner the Antarctic Octopus, you are presented with a moral choice that significantly impacts how the quest progresses in “Dave the Diver”.

Cornering the Antarctic Octopus is no small feat, and upon doing so, you’re faced with two options: Harvest or Rescue.

  1. Harvest Option: Harvesting the Antarctic Octopus would mean ending its life and potentially using its body parts for other game progressions. While practical in some aspects, this decision leans towards a more aggressive approach in dealing with the creature that caused harm to the Beluga.
  2. Rescue Option: If you choose to rescue the Antarctic Octopus, you let it go free despite its harmful actions towards the Beluga. This choice reflects a more compassionate approach, recognizing the octopus as a creature of nature that only acted upon its instincts.

The decision is a matter of personal preference, but choosing to Rescue the Octopus is pivotal for the Beluga’s survival. In gratitude or out of fear, the Antarctic Octopus will drop the Antarctic Octopus Antidote and a Jade Fish Statue when released.
