The game also provides 100 different items that spawn within levels. Some of the items are: steaks, mushrooms, red sneakers, vampire fangs, sonar radar, and poison ivy. Items can affect various elements such as Ero’s jump height, projectile type, and enemy damage. Players can also combine items which can dramatically change gameplay.

When players reach the top they will receive digital and real-life prizes every month! Prizes will vary from the latest games, DLC’s, digital cosmetics, and more.
