Full pause screen
Pause the game and press X + Y.
Allow the game to idle for a short time and a screensaver will appear.
To unlock one of the four characters, bring any one of the original four characters up to level 25, then, with that controller and character loaded, press START, choose CHARACTER MANAGEMENT, and NEW. Then, choose that same character, but hold down TURBO while doing so.
Warrior = Minotaur
Valkerie = Falconess
Wizard = Jackal
Archer = Tigress
NOTE: You can only create a secret character with the one you're at level 25 with.
Hint: Pojo the chicken:
You will find an egg in a chest in one of the towers in the castle courtyard level. Collect the egg and you will become Pojo the chicken.
Hint: Using two-player bridges:
You can use the two-player bridges in single player mode in two ways:
Step on the switch, and if you are very lucky, you will make it.
With an enemy on the other end of where the bridge would be, step on the switch, lure it onto the bridge, then cross.
Hint: Maximum levels:
Note: A controller with an auto-fire feature is useful for this trick. Begin game play in the first level in the mountain world. Go to the second set of stairs. Stand in front of the stairs and keep holding Fire. Unlimited green trolls will keep coming at you. Leave the game in this position for as long as needed to maximize your levels.
Begin game play in the fourth mountain level, the volcanic cavern. This trick allows you to gain up to three levels each time that you visit it, and works well when at a high level that requires a lot of time to gain more levels. Open the first death treasure chest and kill all the monsters up until the first switch for the rotating platform. Be sure not to step on the switch. Return to the first chest containing the Anti-Death Halo. Kill the first Death and if you are fast enough, get the other two Deaths in the stage. One is located in the area with the three normal barrels, in the middle one. The other Death is in a chest before it, but only at certain times depending on what time you open it. A lot of money can also be accumulated, because of the number times used to visit the stage to acquire the levels.
Use the following trick to get a lot of health as well as gold and experience. Go to level 2 in the Volcano. Play through the level and you will receive approximately 2,300 gold each time. The monsters are also weak, and instead of having the food make up for lost life, you will earn about 600 life. Each time you play the level you will earn close to or a little over 5,000 experience even at higher levels. Play through this level three times, saving all gold and power-ups to sell, and you will earn over 20,000 gold.
Hint: Fighting the dragon:
Every time the dragon shoots fire, run behind a rock. You will get the timing correct if you practice. Soon you will know exactly when to run. When it shoots a fire ball (not a fire flame or anything else) and if you have successfully got behind a rock, it will hit the rock which will turn red. Do it again and the rock will break. One of the rocks has 3-way shot inside. Take it and fire the 3-way shot at the dragon to kill it quickly.
Instead of allowing the dragon to destroy the rock, simply run behind the first middle rock to get the 3-way shot. Keeping the rock intact makes it a good place for hiding to avoid the shockwave created when dragon smacks the ground.
Hint: Food from Death:
If you know where Death is in the level, get a potion. Instead of opening the chest or barrel and killing him, use the magic while he is in the chest or barrel. After he screams, the chest or barrel will shake. Open it to find some food.
Hint: Death as a level upgrade:
Death is easy to kill. Typically when you find it, you can use the "Magic Potion" and you gain marginal experience points. When you find the "Halo", do not use your magic. It will void out the "Halo power". Just walk next to Death and let the "Halo" do its task. It will upgrade you to the next experience level.
Hint: Easy health build:
Going through the various warps are quite cumbersome. Your health is typically running low after the Boss matches and the "Blue, Yellow, Green" levels. If you need to recharge your health, go to the very first warp you encountered in the game and you should average around 400 to 500 health points. Do that about three to four times and you should be ready to take on the next warp --it does not take that long.
Hint: Easier Boss battles:
Purchase a Five-Way Shot for use in Boss battles.
Use power-ups such as Rapid Fire, Three- or Five- Way Shot, Player Growth, The Phoenix, and some type of Amulet. Make sure you turn them on before you enter the battle, or the Boss will be hitting you while you are switching between power-ups.
To kill the Dragon, get a 5-way shot. To kill the Yeti, use the fire amulet and 3- or 5-way shot. To kill the Plague, use the electric amulet and the 3- or 5-way shot. To defeat Skorne use the light amulet and the 3- or 5-way shot.
When fighting a Boss, play as the Wizard. Use his yellow turbo attack (therock shower) and it will shave up to one-fifth of the Boss' life. All you have to do is get close.
Hint: Easy experience:
Go to a generator in any level. Stay there and keep shooting at the monsters. You will gain a lot of experience. Eventually, the generator will stop producing the monsters. Note: If you shoot the generator, it will get smaller and you will not get as much experience.
Hint: Head and basketball hoop:
In the third level of the battlefield (The Infernal Fortress) is a basketball hoop with a head nearby. Walk up to this hoop to hear a sound clip on how that head came to be there.
