Torture Room is the fourth stage in Prince of Darkness.
- 1 Shy Boy spawns after 0 seconds0f.
- 20 Assassin Bears spawn after 33.33 seconds1,000f, delay 0.67~1.33 seconds20f~40f.
The objective to kill Shy Boy as fast as possible, then reach the base immediately. Taking too long to do so results in defeat.
Make sure to have a first row full of combos, as you'll barely be able to summon any cats throughout the stage; as for the rest, bring cheap cats with high DPS against Red or Floating enemies (Crazed Whale, Dark Lazer, Axe duo, Elemental Duelist, Fishman, Cutter) and either A. Bahamut, Manic Lion, Express Cat or another fast rusher for the end.
Start with the damage dealers, without caring for your base receiving damage, then summon the fast rusher as soon as Shy Boy dies.
Note: When the weekly missions of the Catnip Challenges appear, there is a 50% chance that one of them will be to clear Stories of Legend stages ten times. Torture Room is an ideal pick to quickly complete that mission due to how quickly it can be beaten and the low energy cost.
Strategy 1 (Ft. Maglev Cat)
Lineup: 2 Unit Speed Up (Sm) or 1 Unit Speed Up (M) combo, Fishman Cat (30), Maglev Cat (Level doesn't matter as long as he does more than 10,000 damage in a single hit), backup rushers such as Awakened Bahamut Cat in case something goes wrong.
Lure the Shy Boy near your base. Don't upgrade your Worker Cat. Wait until you have around 1,150¢ cash, and send out Fishman. Let Fishman rebound and before Fishman starts his attack, send out Maglev to clip through the Shy Boy or any other rusher. You can use this strategy to grind materials here or simply for later stars.
