Start of game. Both the gargoyle and the door spit sharp spinning things. I start in range of the door so I immediately take a hit. The gargoyle fires over my head and is only a problem when climbing
A handy feature is the game pause.
No need to gloat! I pressed QUIT in error here.
Successfully past the gargoyle and over the gap, which is randomly filled with a spinning blade. Onwards and upwards.
These birds are a problem. I fall off my ladder whenever one comes even remotely close.
Past the birds and still climbing
Here I need to make it to the ladder. There's two gargoyles firing at me. Their range is limited so it is possible to edge up close and time my run
This is where all that climbing gets me. As I clear the ladder it disappears along with the other two ladders...
.. and a shadow 'me' drops in for a fight. There are now two health bars in the bottom centre of the screen. He's the purple one and he's much more healthy than me.
I've lost another life, indicated by the two dead skulls on the bottom left. Still the new life has given me more health.
My alter ego is using the KAI power of invisibility. I know this because I thought he was deas and I tried to walk to the left, only to be stopped and hit by something.
Defeated him, climbed the right and the chasm at the top forces me to explore to the right.
Some sort of ghost that spits nasty stuff bars my way
Past the ghost and up another ladder
My first lift and I'm making a leap before the falling cannon ball hits me
To progress I must time the leap onto the other lift and avoid being shot by the gargoyle or hitting one of the whirling blade things.
