The castle is the main section in this game. There are 10 big portals in the castle which lead to the worlds. Use the Halo to return to this castle when you are in a world. Explore the whole castle to find all the items, remember the rooms with fairies and keep defeating enemies to gain experience and coins, keys and arrows. I've created a MAP of the castle a few years ago, it shows the locations of all items, world portals, fairies and other interesting places.


You're able to switch between 2 characters during the game.

POPOLON: The bravest and most respected knight of the castle.
Advantage: Popolon can destroy rocks in 3 hits and can jump higher than Aphrodite.
Disadvantage: Popolon can't stay long under water and can only shoot or put 2 weapons at once.

APHRODITE: This girl is the Greek goddess of love and beauty.
Advantage: Aphrodite can stay long under water and she can shoot or put 3 weapons at once.
Disadvantage: Aphrodite needs 15 hits to shatter a rock and she can't pass the rotating doors. She is not able to shatter the weak walls.

Note: Some items effect some of the disadvantages.


Fairies are in the rooms with the flashing rings.
Stand for 5 seconds on the right location in these rooms to make a fairy appear. Catch her and she will heal your wounds. The 3 rooms are listed below with the right location.

Jonas Astrand has cracked the password system of this game.
Jonas: "The two last figures or numbers binds the rest together. you can for example write xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx, and so on, as long as you have the patience to try out all combinations of the last two figures!" Below you can see an example.


There are 10 worlds. Each world has a guardian. The items you'll find in the worlds will only work in the world you've found them. Use the halo to teleport back to the castle. Defeat all the enemies in a room when you're stuck, most times a stairway will appear or wall will disappear.

Below you can open the world maps. The rooms where you have to defeat all the enemies are marked with a yellow border and the big red arrow is the entrance of the world.
