Enemy DropsEdit

Level FeelingsEdit

Although Level Feelings are not guaranteed, some contain guaranteed items within them.

    However, any items you collect or use don't carry over after completing it.
  • While the items found in crates is random, custom levels will contain any item that is specifically put in them.
  • Skeletons, Vampires, and Jiang Shi all drop a Skull when defeated.
  • When their pool is drained, Piranhas leave skeletons.
