Trivia

Celebration

At the end of each level, if you win you're followers will celebrate and start cheering and dancing madly. At first they will run around crazily and start praising the heavens. However, if you have a large group of followers standing next to each other, there is a good chance that they will form a congo line and start congo-ing in unison, and more followers will continue to join at the end of the line. Also, if you have fire warriors, they will shoot fire into the sky for a display of fireworks.
