Release Notes:This minor update + walkthrough of Grasp of Darkness includes:

- Walktrough included. Since players are experiencing difficulties, I've made an in-depth walkthrough covering secrets and tactics and everything else. There's also a map over Rynth Forest (some of you may be thinking: thank gawd fer that).

- Tile rocks and some more scenery sprites added.

- Some dialogue changes.

- Herb boots now increases strength by 5.

- An anticheat made by iplaydink reigns over the screens, so don't even try it.

- Some boss changes, remade the Slimer boss room, made the last boss much harder, some enemy XP values changed. Enemies in the dark forest becomes stronger if you've beaten the secret boss.

- Health gain from the option 'Increase Health' at level up screen increased.

- Gameplay hasn't been altered much, no story changes, no graphical changes.
