The Udjat Eye is an accessory item found locked inside the Big Chest, which is opened with a Key.

The chest containing the eye is guaranteed to appear somewhere on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th level of The Mines, but will not appear if the level is dark.

It is the first of the four ancient Egyptian artifacts used to reach The City of Gold.

Functionality

The Udjat Eye has two functions, firstly, it reveals hidden items inside blocks, as well as jewels that were previously invisible, increasing the productivity of mining with bombs or a mattock, similar to the Spectacles.

However, its true purpose is to lead the Spelunker to the Ankh, by helping them locate the entrance to The Black Market. The entrance is hidden somewhere in The Jungle, buried in the rock.

Its location must be discerned by monitoring the activity of the Eye as you move around the level.

Whenever the Spelunker draws near to the secret level exit, the Eye will begin to flash as it makes a clicking sound. The faster the eye flashes, the closer you are to the entrance.

The door always generates behind a solid block that must be destroyed with a bomb or a mattock.

Bugs

  • Sometimes the Udjat Eye will take a brief period of time before making any sounds even if the player is really close to the Black Market entrance.
  • It is possible to get the item on the floor by approaching the big chest from underneath with the key.

The Udjat Eye is an accessory item found locked inside the Big Chest, which is opened with a Key.
The chest containing the eye is guaranteed to appear somewhere on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th level of the Mines.

It is the first of four special Ancient Egyptian artifacts required to reach the City of Gold.

Functionality

The Eye functions much like the spectacles, allowing you to see which blocks of terrain contain jewels, and also reveals some gold veins that were previously hidden.

Additionally, it makes loose treasure lying on the ground easier to see by superimposing it over the terrain so that it does not get obscured by rocks or grass.

It does not reveal items that spawn inside walls however, so does not make the spectacles completely redundant when acquired.

Besides this, the main purpose of the Udjat Eye is to help the Spelunker find the hidden entrance to the Black Market located somewhere in the Jungle.

As you approach the location of the entrance, the Eye will start blinking in your inventory and making a squeaking sound, which increases in frequency the closer you draw to the hidden door.

The entrance itself must be revealed by destroying the block in front of it with either bombs or a mattock.

Trivia

The "Eye of Udjat" is another term for the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol representing the protection of the gods.
