Cirelian Trial Example

Cirelian Trials are a sidequest or puzzle game found throughout Dust: An Elysian Tail.

They are a combination of traps, enemies and targets, which require speed and practice to score in. They are usually marked on the map by red rooms, special music, and have a gate that will activate a timer, as well as an end-gate to mark the end of the trial (once you pass the gate, you are required to attempt completion or die/load a saved game to exit). A teleport sphere is located at the end of the trial to teleport you back to the start.

The Cirelian Trials have 4 unlockable ranks. Upon first completion, they will always be an item at the end (regardless of whether or not you did well) which will not be there in subsequent games.

The scoring is based on a few factors:

Hitting a target (a floating lantern-like object): +500

Defeating an enemy: +100

Getting damaged (by enemies or traps): -100

Time left: +100 per second

It is advised to get high stats before attempting for high scores, as it is easier to kill enemies and you will have additional abilities to aid you (sliding, boost jumping, etc.).
