Year's First Dawn is a special stage that appears during the first eight days of a new year. When clearing it, you get an amount of XP similar to the number of the year.


Strategies

Use cheap cats because Angry Sun is considered a metal enemy. Using cats like Cow Cat and its variants is a very good strategy but don't save up for anything that does crits, it's not worth it for the time.
