Spike trap

A Spike trap in some old ruins.

The Spike is a trap that is often encountered in the game.

The Spikes are sharp metal blades that suddenly come out of walls and floors in blocks of about a dozen. They can be encountered as a single block of Spikes or multiple blocks of Spikes. They are fairly easy to negotiate as many magical and ordinary objects can be used to cover them. This will allow the heroes to pass across them without danger or loss of health. The Spikes that come out of walls can be more of a problem but with careful handling, objects can still be used to cover them.

Skeletons can be lured or pushed onto Spikes and will be injured or sometimes they will be killed instantly.

The Spikes are extremely dangerous to the three heroes and can cause death or serious damage to their health, if they are ignored.

  • Knight: he can jump over the Spikes with careful timing or sometimes push objects on to them.
  • Thief: she can jump over the Spikes with careful timing or sometimes swing across them using her Grapple Hook.
  • Wizard: he can cover the Spikes with Planks, Boxes and other objects.
