KING’S ISLAND GAME GUIDE
If you're familiar with action-rpg hack n'slash games just close this window, launch the game, and crush everything in your path. Just pay careful attention to the “nature” of the attacks that you will carry out with your weapons.
...but if you want to know something more, read on.
Once you have started the game, the main way to interact is with the mouse. You can move, use objects, and do actions simply by clicking and using the drag&drop.
You will be able to use potions and scrolls equipped in your fast access slots by clicking their icons on the interface, or pressing the keys from 1 to 5.
Inventory, Journal/Log and Characteristics screens can be accessed by clicking their icons on the interface. You can also reach them using the keys I, L, C.
To pause the game press ESC or P. While on the pause screen you can save your progress.
Depending on the equipped weapon, the nature of the attack will change. You have to take great care with this because you could find that very though enemies (bosses marked by a red circle at their feet), are immune to some kind of attacks.
All the quests to be finished and the missions you have accomplished will be written in your Journal (or Log). Click on the journal icon to access it or press L.
Fighting and solving quests will give you wealth and experience points. Thanks to these points you will raise Kaptivo's level.
When gaining a new experience level you will receive some “bonus points” that you will be free to distribute between the characteristics and abilities of your character.
During your adventures you will conquer, buy and trade great treasures and equipment. To evaluate them and to discover their powers, carefully read the pop up messages appearing when you select them in your inventory
MOVEMENT AND INTERACTION

Fight: when you move the pointer over an enemy the pointer will change in a sword. Just click on the enemy and you will move to him and attack.
Collect objects: when you pass with the mouse over a collectable object the pointer will change into a hand. Click on the object to collect it. Be careful, because the room in your backpack and your strength aren't unlimited!
