** AwesomeButPractical: All the other power-ups though are all kinds of awesome and can easily turn the tides of battle. Special mention goes to Ghost and God-Like which issue a character with what essentially is a complete invulnerability.

Yes, the game is a SpiritualSuccessor (not to say: a total clone) of good old ''VideoGame/{{Gauntlet}}'', but so what? This does not stop it from being an extremely addictive HackAndSlash filled to the brims with an unusual if, perhaps, a bit exaggerated sense of humour, making it an AffectionateParody of classic fantasy tropes and quirks. For today's gamers, it can have a specifically [[RetroGaming vintage]] taste, but when given a chance, turns out to be one of the best possible sources of mindless entertainment when you just need to, you know, kill some DemonicSpiders or other [[PersonalSpaceInvader personal space invaders]], earn some gold and lose some HitPoints.

* AwesomeButImpractical: power-ups increasing speed are not very effective due to the fact that they make it difficult to control the character's actions.

Bats and their Red cousins, Phantom Knights, Wraiths, Dragons and Curses.
** GiantSpiders
AnAxeToGrind: Trolls.
** TheArcher: Serpent Women.
** {{Curse}}: One of non-standard enemies, faster than all player characters(save for Eryc) who can obstruct you by i.e reversing your controls, disallowing you ranged attack or by increasing your health drop rate. They are also tougher than normal monsters.
** DemBones: And they throw swords at you!
** DropTheHammer: Ogres. Curiously, they're the only melee monster to use a weapon.
**{{Intangibility}}: Hags, Phantom Knights and Wraiths have a brief one which can make player's projectile pass through harmlessly, complete with brief disappearing. [[OhCrap Including bosses.]] Still vulnerable to Magic Scrolls though.
** GiantSpiders: Coming in two flavors, {{The Goomba}}-ish one and literally {{Demonic Spiders}}-ish one.
** PhantomThief: Might be an actual phantom thief. Incredibly fast and capable of stealing all of your upgrades and scrolls. Suffice to say, if it happens before a bost fight, you are in trouble. They do sometimes give something if you kill them before they reach you though.
** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Skeletons and Phantom Knights use them as projectiles.

PowerUp: A few of them:
**SkeletonKey: {{Exactly What It Says On The Tin}}.
**TheGrotesque: The Mask of Evil, which makes all the monsters run away from you.
**GodMode: comes in two flavors, Ghost(which adds a benefit of monsters being completely unaware of us) and God-Like(which doesn't).
**SprintShoes: Boots of Mercury which greatly increase movement speed. It's more of a nuisance though as it's harder to control such a character.
**OrbitingParticleShield: Fury of the Sun which acts as a constant Magic Scroll to everything that comes nearby.
* RandomlyGeneratedLevels
RandomlyGeneratedLevels: One of the game modes allow you to traverse endless random dungeons.
