    Magic Books:  Get these by knocking down the Mages.  These increase your magic
                    bars.  The more magic bars you have, the higher you can charge
                    your Magic Attacks. If you have no magic bars, you cannot 
                    perform a Magic Attack.
    Food:         Get these by knocking down the green Mages during the bonus
                    levels.  These replenish health.
