Maximum character attributes

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.

Stronger Magic

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

Easy experience

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 items lasted.

Defeating Generals

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.

Defeating Bosses

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.


Pause game play and do not press any buttons. Eventually some axes will start flying around the screen.
