Getting the Alien Pet


A quick guide simply showing how to get the pet Install Ball

About the pet

Install Ball is one of the 29 animal orbs you can find in the game.

Primary Ability
“Photon Shot”
Attacks enemies by shooting them with photons (lasers). It does next to no damage (about 6 damage) and it adds to many hits to a combo. However, it can at least shoot enemies in the air for full damage. Still, it’s still a terrible pet that you should stay away from.

Install Ball is the eye of the first boss character in the game Alien Hominid. When the boss is defeated, his eye remains on the boardwalk crying. He is also the penultimate boss for said game, taking on the Hominid in a much larger and tougher robot and failing a second time, but after being petted by the Hominid, it quickly befriends the yellow protagonist and follows him through the last level of the game.
Using this pet is not advised as most of the time the photons will miss or interrupt combos or juggles, along with doing pitiful amounts of damage.
When a photon hits an enemy, they flinch and their eyes pop outward.
If a photon hits a decapitated enemy, the enemy’s body will still flinch and their eyes will pop out appearing above the headless body while the head rolls on the floor unaffected.
Install Ball is a D Rank pet.
Another name to the Install Ball, given by Dan Paladin, is Alien Eye.
