Your ingame task is to play Bruno, who collects potions and carries them to the cave. When you bring all the potions, you advance to the next level. Sounds easy, huh?

He wanted her blindfolded before she could see the Grundos and put two and two together. He wanted her stuffed in a bag and flown back to the Space Station. He wanted them to open the bag and roll her out of it before him while he looked sinister and he wanted her blindfold removed just then so that she could gasp in horror at his sight and whisper his name...

the water and the whisper of fire were the only sounds there. What's the
secret of this room? Shad thought to himself. What could the soul and
