A guide that will explain how to activate all NPC's to aid your team in the fight in Cookies Vs. Claus. This guide is split into 4 sections about each NPC it also includes a basic description of each of the NPC's abilities and attacks.
Santa's Helpers: The 3 Toy Figurines
Santa has 3 helpers the Musketeer, the Mage and the Archer. Here is where each of them is located:
(The blue toy soldier next to the archer cannot be picked up and used by santa, it can however be used like a vehicle when you are a cookie)
To activate each of these helpers you must first pick them up. You pick them up by standing near them, looking at them and pressing right click. Once you have done this your screen should look like this:
Now once you have picked up one of the three you must find a cookie to activate it. Whilst holding the musketeer, mage or archer you must run up to a cookie and as if you were eating the cookie right click to bring out the figurine and the figurine will activate by consuming the cookie.
Once you have done this you should see this:
They each only have 1 basic attack which is just shooting bullets (musketeer), magical projectiles (mage) or arrows (archer).
Sadly these are all the helpers you can get as santa, but I suppose it would be a little bit OP if santa could get any more helpers.
Cookie helpers: Mecha-Mouse how to spawn and what it does
Firstly you must find some cheese.
Here are some locations of the cheese: (these locations are not every single possible location they are mainly here so you know what the cheese looks like)
Now that you have the cheese you need to carry it to the mousehole.
The mousehole is always located here:
To bring out the mecha mouse you must simply run with the cheese into the mouse hole
Once you have done this the cheese will automatically drop and a mouse will run out and take it into the hole like this:
Then the same mouse that grabbed the cheese will smash through the wall in a mecha creating a large hole in the wall.
The Mecha-Mouse has 2 main attacks, 1 special attack and 2 special moves. It's 2 main attacks are missiles and bullets, it shoots these constantly when in range of santa. It's special attack is a high-damage, red outlined homing missile seen below. As santa if you shoot the homing missile whilst it is in mid flight it will disapear and not damage you.
The Mecha-Mouse's 2 special moves are its jump and dash move. The jump move is when the mecha jumps into the air and rapidly fires bullets and missiles as it hovers down. The jump move is shown below.
It's other move is the dash move, the Mecha-Mouse simply dashes to one side dodging santa's projectiles.
Cookie Helpers: Snowman How to spawn and what it does
Firstly you must either find the hat or the carrot. Here are some possible locations showing what each of them look like:
(The carrot really blends in with the fireplace here so if you are having trouble finding it check the fire place)
Now once you have either the hat or the carrot you must bring it to the fridge where the snowman awaits. (see the faintly outlined hat and carrot).
Simply run and jump up into the snowman whilst holding the hat/carrot to place it on the snowman. Once you have done this the item you placed should appear on the snowman like this:
Now find the other part either the hat or carrot and do the same as you did before. Once you have placed both the hat and the carrot on the snowman the snowman will start to grow and end up much larger than before.
Now the snowman has 1 normal attack, 1 special attack and 1 special move. His 1 normal attack is simply shooting carrots at santa.
The Snowman's 1 special attack is when he throws his hat at santa. Like the Mecha-Mouse's homing missile it also homes in on santa and can also be shot down by santa before it hits him.
The snowmans special move is an ice shield. When frozen the snowman cannot be damaged by santa but it also cannot shoot projectiles at santa either.
Cookie Helpers: How to activate the gingerbread house and what it does
First you must find a gumdrop. They spawn in many different colours.
Here are some of the locations:
Once you find a gumdrop you must take it to the gingerbread house shown below.
The same as with any of the other cookie helpers you must simply run into the gingerbread house whilst holding a gumpdrop.
It takes 3 gumdrops to activate the gingerbread house. Once you have added three gumdrops to the gingerbread house it will spawn a bunch of gingerbread men.
The gingerbread house will keep spawning gingerbread men until santa destroys it. So if you are santa and you see gingerbread men go to the gingerbread house when you can and shoot it up. You can see how much health the house has by the health bar above it. You can't destroy the gingerbread house until it has been activated.
The gingerbread men the gingerbread house spawns come in two sizes big and small. The big ones have more health than the small ones. They both use only one attack which is when they throw gumdrops at santa.
Out of the 3 spawnable helpers you can get in this game the gingerbread men are probably the weakest. But they provide a continous distraction if the santa does not know that he must destroy the gingerbread house to stop them from spawning.
Personally I would activate the Mecha-Mouse then the snowman and lastly the gingerbread house. However if you notice all the gumdrops or carrot/hat are close to the place they need to go you may aswell activate those first.
