Hunting Strategy

Hunting tips by Larry

HELLO THERE, HUNTERS... hunters... (hunters...)

ECHO... echo... (echo...)

Alright, enough of that.

Watch your step! This quarry runs deep down below the surface and hunters that have entered have yet to return.

The only thing that can distract these mice from their work excavating the quarry is delicious queso! The spicier the cheese, the further into the quarry the scent seems to penetrate, bringing more powerful mice up from the depths, looking to taste the mouthwateringly-spiced queso. The stronger the mouse, the deeper they've explored, and the more Nachore they'll have. Spicier queso will help you find more Nachore much faster!

Nachore is very valuable in Queso Canyon. Not only can you use it to upgrade your pump, but it can be used to purchase a variety of goods from the General Store. The King needs the extra Nachore to keep producing pumps for new hunters to the area, so keep on extracting it and trading it in for goods, even after your pump is fully upgraded!

Good luck and don't fall in!
