Hiya, having lots of fun playing Historical Hero. I can't find anywhere to top up Dink's (I nearly said my ) life. Do I need to play it with a cheat?

Never be afraid to ask, but don't demand an answer 
Not sure what you're asking here. You most certainly don't need a cheat to finish the game.

If you mean to get health back, the usual approach is to kill enemies and they may drop hearts, which heal you. If you're almost dead, pick weaker enemies. Of course, be careful not to lose even more health while doing this.

Another option is to find a shop and buy elixers, but they aren't always available; I'm not sure about Historical Hero, it's been some time since I last played it. I don't bother with elixers anyway; I just kill monsters while being careful.

Hi Shevek, I keep trying to top up by killing monsters, but I'm not very good at killing the bonkas. My reflexes are not what they were. I was thinking about maybe a fountain or something. Thank you for your help, I will keep trying. I'm really glad I don't need to get a cheat file, I imagine it would spoil the game.

If you're really low on life, find pillbugs, they're pretty good about dropping small hearts. If they exist in Historical Hero, I haven't got around to playing that game yet.

Hi Dinkkiller, yes they are in the game, but there are not a lot of them. I will just keep going until I am strong enough not to keep getting killed. It is an excellent game, you should play it

I downloaded it, I just haven't got around to playing it yet. I replayed Stone of Balance the last two days, and other than that I've been working on my own D-Mod.

The first one seems rather meh looking back at it these days. But I guess you're gonna miss some storyline if you skip it.

I've played stone of balance recently, it is really good.

skull, really good game, I am enjoying it so much, shame I am not good enough to keep my life topped up. Us old ones you know, don't have good reflexes anymore

Jenyth, I found out choosing 'health' on the power ups, was a useful option: it extended my life line. I then had to go and get hearts from pillbugs to fill it up.
Then I alternate between strength and defence...and magic?

No elixirs available (in the first part) or a shop to buy them from. But I rarely use elixirs unless absolutely necessary, like a boss kill.
Better to save often, storing points then getting the power ups.
