A player beginning the Home Castle level
|Inhabitants||King, Evil Wizard, Gray Knights, Barbarians|
After the brief intro, wander around this open room and talk to its various inhabitants to learn some basic controls. You can also obtain three gold coins on the floor, and a free health potion (provided you don't have any in your inventory) from the second furthest left person you can talk to, which is a person with a backpack. Once the player is prepared he/she can go to the next area by going up the stairs. Follow the King's frantic pointing to the right and head down the long set of stairs. At the base there will be a face off against multiple Barbarian. After hacking through the enemies and up the next set of stairs, a short video clip of the princesses being snatched is shown.
Follow the stairs up and take out all the Barbarians that are attacking the castle. Proceed to the right once they have been cleared out.
Animal Orbs Edit
- Mr. Buddy - Return to this level after acquiring the shovel. In the starting room, sometimes called the party room, there is an "x" on the far left side. Digging here will unlock the Animal Orb. Mr. Buddy helps you dig faster.
- Pitchfork - This weapon is found on the haystack in the very first screen of the level
- Carrot - Return to this level after acquiring the shovel. You can find this weapon buried in the ground in front of the last burning hut on the second screen.
Upon completing the Final Battle, sit through the cutscene. Instead of kissing the Orange Princess, run to the right side of the room, where the Thief is shooting. There is an "x" on the ground in front of him, but it can't be dug up due to the Thief's constant shooting. A rumour has spread involving 2 people completing the game in Local, and one blocking the Thief's arrows while shooting, and the other digging the hole.
A second rumor involves beating the Final Battle under Insane Mode, and then digging the hole.
And a third rumor involves the Rubber-Handle Sword being obtainable from the hole. This rumor is proven false.
You can dig on the "x" on the ground with one person after the final battle, but nothing happens and it is just decoration on the ground.
