Things to do and get in Shadow of the colossus


There's actually more things to do than you think in shadow of the Colossus, You can get more items which well make it much easier to beat the colossi (plus they're pretty cool)

You must have beat the game at least one to do this (since you need to have unlocked time attack mode).

Go in front of a colossi statue and pray to start to time attack mode. Here are the items you get and what they do:

Whistling arrow: averts the colosises attention

Cloak of Force: Inncreases your strength to inflict greater wounds upon a Colosi

Mask of Strength: basically the same as Cloak of force exept it is a mask

Fruit tree map: displays all the fruit trees in the land on your map

Lizard detection stone: Detects Lizards with white tails and displays their area on your map

Mask of power: I cannot find any difference between this mask and the other (exept they look different)

Cloak of deception: Makes you invisible to the Colosi and yourself (looks funny when you are riding your horse)

Fllash arrow: An Exploding arrow, useful for killing lizards easily and doing damage do a colosi if you aim it for the skin (not the armour), will even do damage to it even if you don't hit it's weak points

You get these Items every time you beat two colosi in time attack mode (note: you get them in order, whistling arrow being first and flash arrow being last)

Now you may be asking yourself "how in the world will the Fruit tree map and the lizard detection stone help me?". Will, finding a fruit tree and eating the fruit extends your life bar by a a tiny bit (more easily noticeable if you have full health then eat it) to get the fruit down from the tree you have to shoot it with a arrow. Once you have eaten all the fruit from a certain area the fruit icon will dissapear from your map (If you have the fruit tree map).

If you find a lizard with a shining white tail kill it and pick up it's tail with R1, doing this improves your grip, I am not sure in what way it improves it yet but I do know it does something something because when I pick up the white tail the outside of my grip meter shines for a few seconds.

Don't bother killing and picking up the tails of fully black lizards, they do absolutey nothing (but killing them could be fun for you if you've collected all the White tails aleady.

Note: if you have the Lizard Detection stone it will only show you the area where the White-tail Lizard is if you either run or ride near the area. It will also show you only the AREA where the White-tail Lizard is, not it's exact location.

So you see? There is much more you can do in "shadow of the Colossus" then just fighting colosi,

This may add more hours to your game, have fun.
