=>Lower or Raise Prices: In a shop, press CNTRL II: A the first time and B the
second time, or press CNTRL II: A+B. This won't work at the Black Market.
=>Continue: Press B A B before the title screen reappears.
=>Hints: Characters will give you hints about the locations of things by
naming map coordinates. Each fortress consists of 8 rooms by 8 rooms (a 64
room square). A-H runs from left to right; 1-8 runs from top to bottom. Thus
A1 is the top left room.
=>Avoid Damage: Hold U+L and Pit will float up and off of the screen. He will
be safe from most enemy attacks while there.
=>Get Everything In Treasure Rooms: Use the chart below for the numbered pot
locations. If the treasure room has a black background, break pots 1, 2, and
8. If the room has a blue background, break pots 2, 6, and 7. Take the total
number of hammers you found in this room and check the chart to determine
the location of the god of poverty's pot; break every other pot, smashing
poverty's pot last. Example: If you find 2 hammers in the black room, the
god of poverty is hiding in pot 7...
