Mistigri-Tips-001

  • When trying to spell “Extend” or “Mystic” by picking up the letters, you can change the letter by shooting it.
  • Pick up potions whenever you can to improve your weapon. Did you know that you can speed up your gun by 50%? Or that you can make the bullets last longer?
  • Throw Enemies into the wall for bonus points.
  • Not enough time to finish the level? Not enough lives? If you purchased the PICO-8 fantasy console, you can increase you number of lives and make many other gameplay changes.
