You Always Keep What You Grab
Here's another thing we like about Random Heroes. When you die, the game lets you keep the coins you collected before meeting that tragic end. Makes having to restart from the beginning of the stage easier to swallow.
Avoid Killing Enemies Near Ledges
Destroying enemies results in silver and gold coins flying all over the place. In most cases, this is good, except when the sucker explodes near a ledge. When this happens, there's a good chance those coins will fall into a spiked pit, leaving you with a somewhat tough decision. Jump in to collect, knowing it may kill you (remember, you always keep what you grab), or leave the precious loot behind.
On that note, do your best to kill bad guys as far away from spiked pits as possible.
Study Enemy Patterns
Does a monster simply walk back and forth? How about the one that disappears behind its armor, then pops up and fires a shot? Then we have the tiny slug-like critters that burst forth from the ground. Bottom line, it's always smart to know what you're up against.
You Can't Stock Up On Med Kits
Sorry, but you can only use a med kit on the spot, when your health bar isn't full. Otherwise, you must leave it behind.
Don't Make Leaps Of Faith
You won't take damage falling from great heights, unless you land in a bed of spikes. On that note, take the slow but safe way down.
