Pickups and Weapon Types

You’ve been ‘plucked’ from planet Earth by a mysterious alien entity, who presents you with the Obsidian Crown. Fortunately, the cosmic beings that control the multiverse have provided some useful ‘trinkets’ for you to use in your quest for survival. They range from projectiles weapons that destroy your enemies, to defensive weapons that improve your karma and help to light your way.

Karma – Good and Bad

The choice is yours, kill your enemies but reduce the amount of light and speed, or boost your speed and light by using the harmless ‘bubble guns’. May you have fun and adventures on your journey!
