The Lizard Assassin throws a shuriken
|Location||Swamp, Area 10|
Defeating the Lizard Assassin will yield anywhere between 35,000-275,000 Gold. He can also drop Aquamarine in place of a bag of Gold.
Lizards are well-known for being nimble and stealthy. This assassin has perfected the art, with abilities ranging from apparent teleportation to Water magics. He is one of the fastest creatures in the world as a result.
The Lizard Assassin runs around the screen extremely quickly, and has two attacks:
- Vortex Spiral
When the player attacks, the Lizard Assassin teleports randomly to another spot on the screen, and a 'copy' of his old position fades away after a few moments.
While the Lizard Assassin's mobility makes most of the screen dangerous at any given time, he seems to avoid the far right of the screen. Position yourself there and face left - with a long sword, you can hit him a large percentage of the time. Keep moving up and down to avoid Shurikens, which are difficult to see against the swampy background. Watch for Vortex Spirals, and move left if one appears to be heading for the side of the screen.
