Unlocking the four hidden characters; Falconess, Minotaur,
Tigress, Jackal, is a fairly easy process. Just get to level 25
with each of the four original characters. Load your level 25
character and start a new one through character management. Hold
Turbo and you will notice your character has turned into
its counterpart. For example, Barbarian becomes Minotaur and Wizard
becomes Jackal. They can be selected with any color.
Hint: Pojo the chicken:
You will find an egg in a chest in one of the towers
in the castle courtyard level. Collect the egg and you will become
Pojo the chicken.
Hint: Using two-player bridges:
You can use the two-player bridges in single player
mode in two ways:
Step on the switch, and if you are very lucky, you will make it.
With an enemy on the other end of where the bridge would be, step
on the switch, lure it onto the bridge, then cross.
Hint: Maximum levels:
Note: A controller with an auto-fire feature is useful
for this trick. Begin game play in the first level in the mountain
world. Go to the second set of stairs. Stand in front of the stairs
and keep holding Fire. Unlimited green trolls will keep
coming at you. Leave the game in this position for as long as
needed to maximize your levels.
Begin game play in the fourth mountain level, the volcanic cavern.
This trick allows you to gain up to three levels each time that
you visit it, and works well when at a high level that requires
a lot of time to gain more levels. Open the first death treasure
chest and kill all the monsters up until the first switch for
the rotating platform. Be sure not to step on the switch. Return
to the first chest containing the Anti-Death Halo. Kill the first
Death and if you are fast enough, get the other two Deaths in
the stage. One is located in the area with the three normal barrels,
in the middle one. The other Death is in a chest before it, but
only at certain times depending on what time you open it. A lot
of money can also be accumulated, because of the number times
used to visit the stage to acquire the levels.
Use the following trick to get a lot of health as well as gold
and experience. Go to level 2 in the Volcano. Play through the
level and you will receive approximately 2,300 gold each time.
The monsters are also weak, and instead of having the food make
up for lost life, you will earn about 600 life. Each time you
play the level you will earn close to or a little over 5,000 experience
even at higher levels. Play through this level three times, saving
all gold and power-ups to sell, and you will earn over 20,000
Hint: Fighting the dragon:
Every time the dragon shoots fire, run behind a rock.
You will get the timing correct if you practice. Soon you will
know exactly when to run. When it shoots a fire ball (not a fire
flame or anything else) and if you have successfully got behind
a rock, it will hit the rock which will turn red. Do it again
and the rock will break. One of the rocks has 3-way shot inside.
Take it and fire the 3-way shot at the dragon to kill it quickly.
Instead of allowing the dragon to destroy the rock, simply run
behind the first middle rock to get the 3-way shot. Keeping the
rock intact makes it a good place for hiding to avoid the shockwave
created when dragon smacks the ground.
Hint: Food from Death:
If you know where Death is in the level, get a potion.
Instead of opening the chest or barrel and killing him, use the
magic while he is in the chest or barrel. After he screams, the
chest or barrel will shake. Open it to find some food.
Hint: Death as a level upgrade:
Death is easy to kill. Typically when you find it,
you can use the "Magic Potion" and you gain marginal
experience points. When you find the "Halo", do not
use your magic. It will void out the "Halo power". Just
walk next to Death and let the "Halo" do its task. It
will upgrade you to the next experience level.
Hint: Easy health build:
Going through the various warps are quite cumbersome.
Your health is typically running low after the Boss matches and
the "Blue, Yellow, Green" levels. If you need to recharge
your health, go to the very first warp you encountered in the
game and you should average around 400 to 500 health points. Do
that about three to four times and you should be ready to take
on the next warp --it does not take that long.
Hint: Defeating Bosses:
Purchase a Five-Way Shot for use in Boss battles.
Use power-ups such as Rapid Fire, Three- or Five- Way Shot, Player
Growth, The Phoenix, and some type of Amulet. Make sure you turn
them on before you enter the battle, or the Boss will be hitting
you while you are switching between power-ups.
To kill the Dragon, get a 5-way shot. To kill the Yeti, use the
fire amulet and 3- or 5-way shot. To kill the Plague, use the
electric amulet and the 3- or 5-way shot. To defeat Skorne use
the light amulet and the 3- or 5-way shot.
When fighting a Boss, play as the Wizard. Use his yellow turbo
attack (therock shower) and it will shave up to one-fifth of the
Boss' life. All you have to do is get close.
Hint. Defeating Golems:
Get Shrink Enemies and Limited Growth.
Hint: Defeating Skorne:
Get a Five-Way Shot and an Electric Amulet. Keep on
shooting until he has been defeated. It also helps to turn a potion
into a shield if you are low on health.
Hint: Defeating the Red Dragon:
When playing as the wizard, use your Rock Shower when
close to the Red Dragon, which will almost kill it.
When playing as characters other than the wizard, buy two Super
Shots, one Timestop, and a Grow. Turn them all on except for Timestop.
Use Super Shot when you get a little close. While you have Growth
on, it should make Super Shot bigger and do more damage to the
Hint: Defeating enemies:
Buy two Growths and two Speed. Turn them both on, then
get Special. Do not use it while you have Growth and Speed on.
With Special, use Turbo Run to make your enemies fly back. This
is best done on big enemies, such as Golems.
Hint: Easy experience:
Go to a generator in any level. Stay there and keep
shooting at the monsters. You will gain a lot of experience. Eventually,
the generator will stop producing the monsters. Note: If you shoot
the generator, it will get smaller and you will not get as much
Use locations with never ending enemies to your advantage. For
instance, since your character can throw their weapons, use a
strategic method to reach a point in your surroundings in which
the monsters cannot reach you, but you can reach them. Just keep
killing them from that spot. Since the enemies are never ending
use that unfair advantage to your advantage. In the long run this
will allow you to prevail in gaining experience. Once you are
satisfied with your skill level and experience, then you can return
to completing the game.
Hint: Head and basketball hoop:
In the third level of the battlefield (The Infernal
Fortress) is a basketball hoop with a head nearby. Walk up to
this hoop to hear a sound clip on how that head came to be there.
