If you only have 1 hit remaining and you kill a boss, (This happened
on the Cthulu boss but I assume it will work on all bosses) when the
big jewel is coming down from the sky, if you stand directly under it
and fire an arrow straight up in the air, the arrow will go up and come
back down and kill you.
The jewel will continue coming down and when it touches you, it will
say YOU DIED but also complete the level and display the completed
text and show the victory screen.

HOWEVER - On the next screen when at the place where you can
purchase things and bet, the game will be frozen!
You character will not be there, it will just be stuck on that screen!

I go back to this game and play it every few months, it's really fun
and has great replay value.
I hope you're looking into making a sequel and will there be any
more dev episodes?


Thank You so much for reporting! Nice to hear you enjoy it. - Stay tuned!!!


Awesome game! I hope GamePhase will consider doing a sequel or level expansion!

Thank you so much!
