Tips

  • Be prepared when fighting a crowd of enemies. Partners are just as important as a good weapon.
  • You can assemble large teams, but don't forget to heal your partners when necessary.
  • Light up torches to show where you've been.
  • If you're lost, pause the game to view the map. Your position is marked red, doors are yellow.
  • Collect gold to buy new weapons from the shopkeeper.
  • Temporary invisibility is a deadly combination with the bow and arrow.
  • If you grab a new weapon, your old one will be lost forever! If you like the one you have, keep it.

Cute game and fun to explore! Nice work

Kept hitting the Windows key while trying to press 'z' to attack. Would prefer space bar for button mashing.
