- Crouching whereas urgent the bomb button units the bomb gently in entrance of you. That is good for placing the bomb in a exact location. If you’re courageous, you may choose it again up and throw it into the air proper in time for it to blow up.
- You may maintain the up button or down button to pan the digicam up and down. Pan down earlier than leaping into a brand new part of the extent, as you need to have the ability to anticipate what enemies and traps are ready for you.
- At all times maintain one thing! Particularly within the first world, held objects shall be a lifesaver as a result of they will set off arrow traps or be thrown at an enemy.

In the identical vein, purchase ropes and bombs at retailers liberally.
- Outlets might be robbed, however the shopkeeper will defend his merchandise. All shopkeepers are armed with a shotgun and have superb reflexes. If you wish to rob the store, both choose up a weapon in his store and stun him and kill him, or determine an alternate means. There are various methods to stun the shopkeeper with out a weapon, however he’s a fast bugger, so it’s dangerous. Not solely that, all shopkeepers in upcoming ranges shall be conscious that you’re a robber, and shoot you on sight. Additionally they will guard the exits to every stage, making the run a lot tougher.
- When the shopkeeper(s) is enraged, not attacking them for a couple of ranges can get you a message that claims you’ve been forgiven, and the shopkeepers will return to regular.
- There are various kinds of retailers that every promote various things. Regular retailers that seem on ranges are a weapons store (bombs rely as a weapon), a clothes store (which additionally sells rope), a specialties store, a pet store (sells ropes, mounts, and infrequently the extent’s pet), and a common retailer. The store may also be a cube recreation the place you pay $2,500 (or extra later within the recreation) to roll two cube. If you happen to roll a 1-6, you lose your buy-in.

If you happen to get poisoned, you’re taking a sluggish ticking harm till it’s cured. There are a couple of methods to treatment poison: getting a pet to the exit of the extent, getting the Elixir from the problem in Temple of Anubis, or dying and reviving with the Ankh. Curse is attributable to witch docs in Jungle, cursed cats within the Temple of Anubis, and the curse pot on every stage if it collides with you in anyway earlier than breaking. A curse reduces your HP to 1 and nullifies any means you usually achieve well being. The best way to treatment a curse is 1. dying with the ankh, 2. finishing the problem in Temple of Anubis for the elixir, or probably simply sacrificing a pet to Kali (although I’m really not 100% certain on this one, I’m considering possibly it’s simply generally?).
