Defeated enemies will leave behind hearts of different sizes. These hearts can be used to buy items in stores you find.


You will come across many doors throughout your adventure. Some doors will lead to stores or upgrades while others will lead to rooms filled with vicious enemies!


In skyworld stages, if you walk through the edge of the screen you will appear on the other side. This is handy not only for finding easier routes, but also avoiding enemies. Unfortunately it doesn't work for the bottom of the screen and if you fall down, you will lose a life.

In fortress stages, you must navigate through a maze of rooms in order to reach the boss. There are many enemies to defeat or avoid so make sure to keep healthy enough to handle the boss!


The hammers you pick up can be used to smash statues you find. Doing this will free the Centurion inside who will help you when you face the fortress boss. Each boss has a lot of health so you should take all of the help you can get!
