Randomly strewn through the maps are treasure chests that have various pick-ups from gold to food items that add to your overall score. The gold that you collect throughout the levels can be used in two ways. One is spending them at the stores that are typically in the middle of the levels but change up with the constantly varied level patterns. In some spots there is a mini arcade game where you play as a king’s guard in a platformer style level. Here you can collect even more gold to spend in the store. The store is where you can upgrade your king’s guards speed, fire rate, damage and weapon pick up length. You can also upgrade those abilities by picking up food in quick order that is dropped from enemies. As you go through the levels you gain experience points which add to your amount of health bars and speed of your hero. You regain health by either randomly picking up health hearts or by leveling up. As far as the monsters go they vary from beetles, Frankenstein like zombies, to plants that spit fire or poison. Each level is not like the other and they switch up randomly. The bosses also change randomly throughout the game but are always at the end. The boss fights are where the game gets very difficult with little to no health drops you must attack wisely and defend even better.
