Health & Armor
Baytor's Tip: Try not to pick up health or armor unless you can use most of it. Example: Don't pick up a Life Essence if your health is 92.
Powerups & Inventory Items
Provides temporary invulnerability to all attacks. Note that you are still susceptible to physics, which means a dynamite blast may hurl you off a cliff.
Baytor's Tip: The Monolith team has admitted that they forgot to tint the screen to show when this powerup is active. Be careful, or you might find it wearing off at a very inopportune time.
Gives you double-fisted killing power with one-handed weapons, such as the shotgun, flare gun, and Tommy gun.
Baytor's Tip: It's not always advantageous to pick up this powerup.
Although the Guns Akimbo gives you increased firepower, it chews up ammo
twice as quickly (often very wastefully). It's extremely helpful against
tougher oppenents, especially the living variety you'll find in a Bloodbath.
Crystal Ball (Press "C" to activate)
this powerup enables you to see your enemies regardless of where they are.
Cycle through your foes by repeatedly hitting the hotkey or Enter. To deactivate
the crystal ball and save it for later, scroll through all opponents and
it will turn off.
Beast Vision (Press "B" to activate)
You'll no longer need to fear the creatures in the dark.
Cloak of Invisibility
The cloak will hide you from your enemies. That is, until you decide to attack them, even then they will have a hard time attacking you. Definately, one of the more useful power-ups in the game.
Automatically activates shortly after entering the water. Be careful, because it doesn't last for very long.
Dr.'s Bag (Press "M" to activate)
Will restore up
to 100 points of health when activated. The unused medicine will remain
in your inventory until used up. Keep this item handy!
Jump Boots (Press "J" to activate)
Enable you to
jump much higher than normal. Useful for those hard to reach places or
crossing chasms the easy way.
This odd little
artifact shows up mostly in user maps, and causes extreme delirium, much
like the bite of a red spider. There were originally three other types
of mushrooms, with such affects as rage, grow, and shrink. Only the delirium
mushroom made its way into the final code. An invisible delirium mushroom
can be found in the men's room of the Monolith Building II Blood
Bath level that is available with the Plasma Pak.
This powerup causes bullets to bounce back at your attacker. You are still susceptible to flares and explosives, so be careful.
Baytor's Tip: As it says, you're still vulnerable to fire, explosives,
and tesla cannons, so don't get cocky.
artifact on shows up in Cryptic Passage, and no one seems to know
what it does.
