An easy way to defeat the Bosses is to buy four or
five of the following items before the fight: Triple Shot, Rapid
Fire, a magical amulet (Acid, Light, Fire, etc.) that the Boss
is weak against. Get close and press the button as fast as possible.
It is amazing how quickly the Boss' life goes down. This strategy
can be used for every Boss in the game and also makes the Spider
Queen very easy.
By lots of Super Shot and do not stop shooting at the Boss. Note:
This will not work against the Lich and Spider Queen.
Buy a lot of Thunder Hammers. When you reach the Boss' level,
run directly up next to it and repeatedly attack. You will continuously
attack without taking a lot of damage. The Boss should die without
much of a fight. If you die before you kill it, buy more Hammers.
This works much better if you are playing a multi-player game.
Have both you and your teammate(s) run up and attack in the same
manner. When you both/all have a full turbo meter, use your team
attack. This will help kill the Boss faster. The Thunder Hammer
trick works well on most of the weaker Bosses. The Boss of the
Dream levels is too wise for this trick, and the final Boss is
too strong. The Spider Queen will hit you frequently. In order
to defeat her easily, start a multi-player game and designate
someone as the punching bag. Whoever plays the punching bag should
run up to the Queen and stand in front of her, causing her to
get distracted by attacking only that person. This will work for
awhile, then she will turn and try to get someone else. Make sure
that the punching bag is always in her way. Buy a lot of invincible
crystals for the punching bag character. Remember, if an item
is timed, it will run out twice as fast in a Boss battle. The
punching bag can attack the Queen and is recommended, especially
since that means more damage faster. Also, do not forget to use
your Team Attacks. They will deal a large sum of damage.
As a Jester or Archer, stand far from the Boss and fire repeated
shots at it. When it gets ready to fire long range attacks, stop
firing and move. It will miss and become vulnerable. Note: This
will not work with the Lich or Spider Queen.
This trick requires a lot of money. Go to the shop and buy a lot
of Super Shots. Continuously fire at the Boss. The Boss will be
attacking you, but you will not lose any health.
Defeating the Dragon
In single player mode, buy about 7 Lightning Breaths
and stand directly next to him and use them. In two player mode,
buy about 4 Lightning Breaths for each player and do the same
thing. For three player mode, buy about 3 Lightning Bolts, and
for four player mode, but two to three each.
Buy five or more Reflective Shields (and some Amulets if desired).
As soon as you start, use your full magic attack to clear the
rocks directly in front of you. Then, put on your Amulet (if available)
and get your shield ready. Start throwing your big attack at him
and put up your shield whenever he shoots a single fire ball.
Then, turn your shield off to save power. You only will get hurt
when he shoots two fire balls or stomps his foot. He should die
quickly. If he uses his fire breath, you are too close -- back
away. This is an easy way to gain levels and money.
Go to the far upper right or left. You should be directly
next to his vat. This is his blind spot, and very few attacks
can reach you. Just fire away at him until he is dead. Note: This
is best done with two players, one on each side of his vat.
Enable the "10,000 gold per level" code.
When you defeat the Wraith, you should have 40,000 gold. Next,
shop and buy 20,000 gold worth of invincibility and 20,000 gold
worth of the Hammer. When you run out of hammers, Skorne should
at least have half of his life gone, and you will still have invincibility
throughout the entire battle. If you run out of invincibility,
use a second player as a sacrifice.
To easily defeat Skorne in the Underworld, first defeat him in
the Desecrated Temple and buy at least 10,000 gold worth of reflective
shield. When you get to Skorne, wear the Gauntlets that he gave
you and your reflective shield. Few of his attacks will hit you,
and he will die within three minutes.
Fire a strong attack. The General will block it. Then,
fire a turbo attack. Repeat this until they are dead. For a more
powerful hit, use the turbo attack when close to them.
Save a lot of treasure (about 3,000 gold). Buy Hammers
with it. This will give you a very long lasting Hammer that will
almost kill whatever Guardian you fight. It is also difficult
for them to hit you while you are attacking with this Hammer.
Hammers also work best for beating on anything you cannot take
down without taking a lot of damage.
Tap "Quick Attack" (default is [A]) two to
three times, then [Strong Attack] (default is [Y]) to
do a special one or two hit combination hit after the normal attacks
are done. These combos do more damage than regular attack and
are useful against mini-Bosses or Bosses who are in short-range
distance (the Spider Queen, Lich, etc.).
Killing the Spider Queen repeatedly. She is worth the
best experience. If you have some friends playing, have them use
the "Defeating Bosses" trick for rapid killing. You
can get two to three levels per fight depending on how long your
Use a total of four controllers and start a four player game.
Lead all of your "decoys" into the Spider Queen's lair.
Move them to the middle then kill her with your main character.
After she is defeated, she will drop 44,000 gold and be worth
30,000 experience points.
Go to any level in the Forsaken Province world. Instead of destroying
a generator, keep killing the enemies.
If you have gotten to the Plague Fiend in the Sky World, use the
trick where you go to the top right or left corner and attack
the Plague Fiend for an easier victory. Stay there and throw your
weapon at the Plague Fiend until it dies, then collect the 5 gold
pieces it drops. You should have only lost about 1000 or 2000
health, and at least gained 1 level. When you pick up all the
coins, you should have about 10,000 gold. Next, go shopping and
buy all the Meat you can get. Should have a lot of treasure remaining
to buy other items, including add-ons to your attack, speed, defense,
and magic. Repeat this until you have all the items and experience
Go to the third level of the Forsaken Province with the Antideath
item available. Proceed until you get to a place with doors on
both sides of it outside before the fountain. Turn Antideath on
and destroy all of the doors. One will have a Black Death (which
steals a level) inside. Go to it when it runs. Keep running at
it and you will get a level from it because of Antideath.
Save up about 5,000 to 10,000 gold and spend it on Invulnerability,
3-Way Shot, Quick Shot, and Fire Amulets. You should have about
three or four of each. Fight the spider queen, and get close enough
for all three shots to hit, but far enough away to not use close
range attacks. You should kill the Spider Queen quickly with any
character, gain about two levels, and still have all your health.
You will also get 11,000 gold for every player to spend on upgrades
Buy a lot of Thunder Hammers and Invulnerability. Then, stand
in any level with generators (the first level of the first area
recommended). Let the generators make enemies until that area
is almost full. Then, use your Thunder Hammer and you will destroy
some of them. Note: Do not destroy the generator. Repeat this
to gain levels quickly.
Note: This trick requires two controllers. Load an
existing character, then create another character with the "Invincibility"
code. Go to any Boss. Have the invincible character just stand
there and use your character to attack the Boss until it is defeated.
It drops double the gold on a two player game, which your main
character should collect. Repeat this to get as much gold as needed.
When you use magic, it will be stronger depending on
your character's color.
Blue: Lightning potions are stronger and have better radius. Lightning
shields are also larger.
Green: Acid potions are stronger and have better radius. Acid
shields are also stronger
Red: Fire potions are stronger and have better radius. Fire shields
are also stronger.
Yellow: Light potions are stronger and have better radius. Light
shields are also stronger
Each character, after reaching level 25 and level 50,
will gain special powers by using their magic. The powers listed
will also work for the secret forms of these characters. Also,
all characters at about level 75 to 90 will learn how to use their
magic to heal themselves. Each time you use magic, you will gain
about 3 HP multiplied by how many enemies you kill with your magic.

Enable the "10,000 gold per level" code.
You will start the game with 10,000 gold. Go shopping and buy
magic, armor, strength, or speed until you are out of gold. Return
to the game and you will once again have 10,000 gold. Keep buying
attribute level-ups until your character has 999 strength, 999
armor, 999 speed and 999 magic. You can also replenish your health
following a tough level by buying meat until it is restored. Save
your character or this will have to be repeated.
Level 99 Sumner
To get the level 99 Sumner, go to the second level
of the Battle Grounds, and play it normally. Find the exit, then
backtrack until you find a bridge. It will be towards the front
of the screen. You should not have to go far to find it. Enter
the trap door and get all the coins. Note: You may need to unlock
all the other secret characters first. When collecting all the
coins, start on the right side. This level is very difficult and
may require a few attempts. Sumner's stats are:
Mini Mr. T. Dwarf
Choose the Dwarf as your character and cycle through
his colors until you get to the one where he is black and is wearing
yellow. You will see a near exact Mr. T replica.
When you defeat Skorne the first time, get the items
he drops. Wait until you exit the shop screen, then put them all
on. You look like a smaller version of Skorne. Note: This works
best with the Dwarf.
If you find Death while wearing Anti-Death, he will
get scared in run away in one player mode. In two to four player
mode, he will simply avoid the player wearing Anti-Death and run
after another player. Note: This works best if the "Permanent
Anti-Death" code is enabled.
In the game there are two Deaths, a red one that will
steal 100 health and a black one that will steal 1 level. By buying
plenty of Anti-Death, you can avoiding losing health and levels.
After putting on an Anti-Death halo, Death will avoid you. Instead
of just ignoring the Death, run towards him with the Anti-Death
still active. When you do this, the powers will be reversed. With
red Death, you will gain 100 hundred health from him. With black
Death, you can gain an entire level from him.
Equip the "Invincibilty" code, and go to
any desired level. Find a General (recommended), Golem or Gargoyle,
but do not kill it. Instead, have it follow you around. Stand
next to a group of enemies and/or their generator and let the
General, Golem or Gargoyle attack you. While attacking you, it
will also destroy enemies and their generators, leaving you unharmed.
You can destroy whatever was helping you when you get bored with
Enable the "Invincibility" code, and find
a second invulnerable item. Equip both and take off the limited
one. You should now glow yellow. Each hit on you will increase
your health. Note: This will exceed your maximum health.
Once your character reaches level 80, their magic,
regardless of which character, will heal a small portion of their
health (even if you destroy magic that comes from a treasure chests,
a barrel or is dropped by a general).
Forsaken Province world: Playing
Somewhere on the third level of the Forsaken Province
is a glowing sphere that when touched allows you to play tag.
When touched by the person that is "it", the game will
state the name of the person that is now "it" (for example,
Green Jester). Note: This does not work in single player mode.
Forsaken Province world: Mausoleum
level: Dead man alive
Go to where you lower the wooden bridge. Walk near
the coffins and you will hear a person screaming and pounding
to get out.
Hidden Golden Item
Go to the Armory, in the Castle Realm (the fourth level
in the third realm). After defeating the giant white golem, go
into the farthest corner, directly underneath the stairs to the
exit. Attack the wall directly below the stairs. It should blink
and disappear, exposing a golden feather. Also, the runestone
is in this level.
Go to Sumner and scroll down to "Runestones".
It will tell you the next Runestone location.
If you fail to find all twelve Runestones after defeating Skorne's
first form, go back to any previous level. If that level has a
Runestone in it, a meter appears that will show you how close
you are to a Runestone. The same will happen if you cannot find
the thirteenth runestone.
The first Runestone is in the Forsaken Province on the Fields
level. As you are going down the ramp of the mill, destroy all
the enemies. There will be a shed with gates. Destroy the gates
with an attack of any kind to get the first Runestone.
Finding secret characters
The second Runestone is in the mausoleum of the Forsaken Province.
There is a ledge with gold and a treasure chest. Destroy the wall
in the middle of them and the Runestone can be found behind there.
The third Runestone is in the valley region. In the cliff level,
there is a part with a flame geyser and a narrow path on the right.
About three steps there is a breakable wall with a lever and some
other items. Pull the lever and it will show you where the Runestone

Use levitation to get over traps. You can walk over
them when the spikes appear.
Screaming and shaking treasure box
When you use your x-ray vision glasses and see a skull
with cross-bones (Death) in a treasure chest, stand next to the
chest, but do not open it. Use one of your magic potion bottles.
The treasure chest should start to shake, and you will hear Death
Turn cherries into apples
You must be at least at level 60, when you are told
that your potions can purify poisoned food. If there is a poison
barrel next to a cherry, hit the barrel. The cherry should turn
into poison fruit. Next, use a potion on the poison fruit and
it should turn into an apple. Note: Electric potions will not
