Nitrome Wiki

Welcome to Nitrome Wiki's sandbox!
This page exists so that you can practice editing or formatting (see Editing help) without changing any serious content. Feel free to try out wiki editing here first. As the name sandbox implies, this is the place for you to play around and experiment with wikicode.
There is a tutorial on the Central (coordinating) Wikia that will step you through more of the things you can do. Our software, MediaWiki, allows for rather complicated formatting. It can look overwhelming when you begin, but don't worry. Just start with the basics... enter some text, and learn the other pieces as you go. Your content contributions are welcome and important. This wiki project is a collaborative effort and others can help with formatting and other improvements.
Best wishes!

Yolk Helper Leap Day - Yolk Helper.png
The Yolk Helper behaves independently from the player. When encountering any fruit within the player's view on the screen, the Yolk Helper will eat the fruit, adding it to the player's fruit count. It is also capable of killing many enemies with the same eating motion. The Yolk Helper eating

The shield generates a forcefield around the player and protects from any deaths, except for those that were inflicted by crushing. If the player takes damage while the shield is equipped, the shield will flash red and the player will be repelled away from the hazard. Shields have small orbs surrounding them, indicating the number of hits the player can take before it breaks. Previously, shields were not stackable, but an update allowed each activated shield to accumulate hits up to 9 HP.
