                    HINTS FOR THE GAME    "SHADOWCASTER"
                       BY  ORIGIN!!!!
    
    
      Okay, first off, this is a great game... There hasn't been a game engine developed
      since the original WOLFENSTEIN that I liked as much... I'm not saying SHADOWCASTER'S
      game engine is easy or perfect, but it the combined effect of smooth scrolling and
      point and click interface go great with my LOGITECH TRAKBALL!  I must admit however 
      that I wouldn't want to play this game with a mouse or joystick... TOO cumbersome!
      The graphics are great!!!! Not to be outdone!!! Truly the best graphics I've seen 
      this side of CDROM... The bad thing about that however, is that once you play the 
      game, other game graphics seem pretty lame...  more  later...
    
    
      LEVEL ONE - LAND OF THE MAN-EATING PLANTS! - YOU START OUT THE GAME WITH 
      A TWO LEGGED MYOPIC CREATURE RUNNING TOWARD YOU... CLICK ON THE FOOT ICON AND
      THEN HOLDING THE CURSOR AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN (FOR THE BEST AGGRESSIVE STANCE)
      KICK THE EVER-LUVIN' CRAP OUT OF THE THE GUY... HE WILL DECINTEGRATE INTO A PUDDLE
      OF SLUDGE IF YOU KICK HIM LONG ENOUGH...
      NEXT GO TOUCH THE OBELISQUE AND GAIN THE POWER OF THE MAORIN... NOW CHANGE TO
      MAORIN... JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT... CHANGE BACK TO HUMAN AND GO FIND THE POD
      PEOPLE... LITTLE SQUAT RED TULIPS THAT STAND UP AND BITE YOU (REMEMBER LITTLE SHOP
      OF HORRORS) WELL IMAGINE TWENTY AUDREY 2'S....  JUST KICK THOSE PLANTS INTO
      SEED PULP (AND REMEMBER TO COLLECT PLENTY OF SEEDS.... AT LEAST 6...)
      PICK UP WHAT EVER YOU FIND ALONG THE WAY...POTIONS, WANDS, WHAT NOT... BE SURE
      TO KEEP CHECKING YOUR MAP TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE COVERING EVERY INCH OF LAND...
      AFTER YOU'VE KICK THE CRAP OUT OF ENOUGH PLANTS... GO TO THE ACID POOL...(FIND IT
      ON THE MAP) NOW DROP A SEED-POD FROM A BEATEN POD CREATURE ONTO THE ACID POOL..
      NOTICE IT EXPLODES AND SPREADS OUT? YOU MAY NOW MAKE A PATH ACROSS THE ACID POOL
      BY DROPPING SEED-PODS IN FRONT OF YOU AS YOU GO!!!  YOU  WILL WANT TO PROGRESS
      TO THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE ACID POOL... THERE ONCE YOU REACH DRY LAND YOU NEED TO
      CHANGE TO YOUR MAORIN FORM AND USE YOUR CAT-SIGHT....  YOU WILL NOTICE IN FRONT OF
      YOU THAT THERE ARE PRESSURE PLATES ON THE GROUND... DON'T STEP ON THEM!!!!!!
      THEY WILL LET LOOSE A HORRENDOUS FIREBALL VOLLEY THAT WILL WIPE YOU OUT!!!!
      CAREFULLY NAVIGATE AROUND THEM TO THE OTHER SIDE..... CHANGE BACK INTO HUMAN FORM... AND
      NOW TAKE OUT THE SHURIKEN (PROUNOUCED "SURE I CAN") THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE PICKED UP
      ALONG THE WAY... 
      YOU WILL COME TO A SPLIT PATH WITH THREE SEPARATE FIREBALLS IN FRONT OF THEM...
      ABOVE THE FIREBALLS FLOATING IN MID-AIR ARE THREE " BLUE-EYEBALL THINGYS"
      (I HOPE THAT'S NOT TOO TECHNICAL) HURL YOUR SHURIKEN REPEATEDLY AT THE "BLUE EYEBALL
      THINGYS" UNTIL THEY EXPLODE... ONCE YOU HAVE DESTROYED ALL THREE THEN YOU CAN
      GO KILL THE TWO-LEGGED CREATURES THAT ARE BEHIND THE FIREBALLS... BE CAREFUL!!
      THEY SHOOT LIGHTNING BOLTS FROM THEIR HEADS!!!!
       ONCE THEY ARE DEAD SEARCH AROUND FOR A LITTLE WHITE STATUE HEAD... PICK IT UP..
       DROP THE REST OF THE SEED-POD THINGYS AND TAKE OFF... YOU NOW NEED TO FIND
       THE FLOATING CHEST!
       USE YOUR SHURIKEN ON THE FLOATING CHEST AND IT SHOULD DROP OUT A TRIAGLE KEY...
       ONCE YOU USE THE TRIANGLE KEY ON THE WATER FOUNTAIN-THINGY  (IT HAS A TRIANGLE
       KEY ON THE SIDE OF IT) YOU CAN WARP TO THE NEXT LEVEL....
    
    
           I HAVE NEARLY FINISHED THIS GAME AND AM MORE THAN WILLING TO POST MORE HINTS
           FOR IT BUT ONLY IF PEOPLE RESPOND... I'M NOT TYPING MY LITTLE FINGERS OFF FOR
