SDAlogo runner.png This game has a run page on SDA!

This page refers to the NES version. Some items on this page may not apply to versions released on other systems.

General Items

  • On VS COM mode, the suitcase and all 4 items need to be collected.
  • You can only hold one item at a time, unless you have the suitcase.
  • The Club does 2x the damage of your fists.
  • The Dagger does 3x damage compared to your fists.
  • If you get the Club after the Dagger, the Club becomes your weapon and the Dagger disappears.
  • Items and players always start in the same spots.

Notes on the Time Bomb

  • Time Bombs exist naturally in Levels 5-8. They are the only traps in the game that are not set by the characters from the start of a game.
  • If a time bomb exists in a room, you can simply exit the room to clear it out.
  • You can run through the room with one, but only at an angle or straight up/down. It is impossible to cross the room horizontally or go up or down stairs without dying.

One-Way Doors

A couple of one-way doors exist in Level 8. You can go through them from one direction normally, but once gone through, the wall becomes solid.

  • Both doors exist on the first floor.
  • Both doors work by going from right to left only.

Fighting Black

Generally, you do not and should not fight black. Why?

  • It takes time to stop and fight.
  • You will stop and laugh after you kill him.

In optimal runs, you should only need to fight him in Levels 2 and 5.
