Terminator Reference

When you fight the cyclops and he runs and jumps into a pool of lava afterwards, notice that he gives a thumbs up sign once he is submerged. The gesture is a nod to a similar scene in the popular sci-fi movie, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Where to find the ice sword

The ice sword is the only weapon in the game that grants the player an ice ability when attacking with their weapon. You can find it in the ice castle. Go to the room where the ice king takes the princess away and laughs at you, then go to the upper right of the room, then use your shovel and dig around in the ice, its position is random each time so it might help if you had the dog animal orb( can be purchased at the snow store for about 700 coins) this weapon has no upsides or downsides, it gives the player the chance to freeze the foe similar to the Blue knight's magic attack. The Meat Sword can also be found in the same room. It is on the shelf with some other meat.

Digging spots

When you go in a level, look for a a small "X' in the ground, many can be found in the desert, use your shovel to dig up various treasures from the ground like coins and gems, or even weapons. You can also use the Dog animal orb to find the spots for you, you can buy it at the Snow Store for about 600 coins.
