Along the way the player picks up special items to restore health and magic, special weapons to help defeat enemies, and four magic spirits found in shrines to aid Prince Ali’s mission.
Prince Ali’s default weapon is his knife, which can perform special attacks and has unlimited usage. Also during the course of the game the player can equip Prince Ali with special weapons such as swords, crossbows, and bombs. Some crossbows (and a sword) can ignite their targets on fire. However, unlike the knife, these weapons do not have unlimited usage and will break after a set amount of uses.
The Wild Spirits are elementals the player can call to help to destroy enemies, heal the hero, or solve puzzles. These are the fire spirit, the water spirit, the plant spirit, and the shadow spirit.
