With your trusty bow, you'll wander from cave to dungeon, eliminating various minions of the dark lords, becoming ever stronger as your quest goes on and getting ready to face the dreaded barons themselves.

For some reason, it really didn't like my trackpad. I'm running a win7 toshiba with intel i3, if that helps at all. It would only recognize my mouse movement if I moved it very slowly and didn't do anything else at the same time--jumping, walking, etc.

One minor flaw I can see with this game is that you can't sell old equipment to the stores, only buy them--and considering that dropped equipment is persistant, that can be a bit of a problem, especially in the hub camp.

Behind some obvious crates in the camp, there's a door marked "Don't open". Inside that room, there's a guy who can easily be killed the first time you reach there, even if you can't yet kill the monsters which come just after you kill him. He drops a key which if you're quick can be used to open a chest with ~1000 gold and a pretty nice mask. The fact that you'll probably die is no problem, because you get to keep the gold (and the mask). In a couple minutes doing this, you'll have enough to buy all the best gear the shops have.

It's a little broken, but I guess the best equipment is supposed to be found elsewhere anyway.


That mask is creepy though.

Could someone help with the Purple Cave, please? I feel like I'm missing something super obvious.

In the entrance screen, how do you get up to the level of the purple sorcerors?


Never mind, I got it. Why are we pixel hunting in an action game???

Ok, this item inventory thing is officially mud. I lost 2 rare weapons because there was a treasure chest in the middle of a battle, which got opened, and I was killed before I could switch it back out. I ended up with two worthless "weapons", and no way to kill the enemies on this floor.

Who does this? Why have both keyboard and mouse if both attack and pickup are a one-button function? This is beyond annoying. This is unplayable.

Re:- purple cave, if you know how to get to those higher platforms, do share?

I gave up there.


Another way to hit that switch is to move the mouse closer to the player, so the arrows fire with less force. That lets you stand in the area below it and fire in an arc that hits the switch on the way down.


I was really having fun with this game up until Heroic Red. When I respawn at a checkpoint, platforms that were destroyed remain destroyed, making it literally impossible to proceed without restarting the level. If you haven't played Heroic Red, know that the main challenge is trying to get to the next area before the platforms you need to do so are destroyed.

reached fire passage (eventually), got to a point where there's a jump too big to make and those purple witches that throw green fireballs who just keep constantly respawning.
There is a switch that you can't jump up to and if you try to shoot it you can't because the closest clear shot is WAY off screen.
My guess is it opens one of those half bridge logs.

If you want to live a long time, go in the "Don't enter" door and kill that guy and grab the head.
It's a serious power up ;-)


I liked it but it was too easy got to the end in no deaths and died like twice in the final boss because I had no health potions and found the don't open door in five seconds and got the money and mask

For those who can't get though 'impossible jumps'...

a) The Rush potion (which gives you higher and longer jumps) is your friend.
b) The Speed potion is also your friend.
c) Unlike the real world, mixing medications is even more your friend.
d) On the top floor of the camp is a potion vendor, where you can buy lots of friends.

And past that vendor are some breakables that hide the chest that goes with the key you get by the Don't Open door.

That said, I agree that Heroic Red is a problem--those platforms need to reset when you die, right along with the enemies.


They reeeally need to explain the shot power mechanic, it took me way to long to figure out that closer clicks = weaker shots.
