Enemy character introduction

Knight It can't be reversed until it hits a wall,
although LINA is aimed at. A very common enemy.
Ghost It is moving about aslant on the screen.
Since it is a ghost, it runs through a wall.
Mage A wizard's subordinate.It will leap,
if walls other than an outer wall are hit.
Since it is made to fall freely if a "miracle ring" is
in the stage of the bottom when Mage is, it is careful!
Golem Since the body is heavy, it cannot move quickly.
However, even if it seals in a "miracle ring",
a seal will be solved immediately.
Moreover, thinking capability has shifted
and it jumps aiming at the stage above LINA.
Bersecker The fighter who strengthened and made the knight.
It moves about at high speed
and is a remarkable formidable enemy.
Elemental The screen top is drifted lightly.
Since it is a ghost too, it runs through a wall.
Wizard The time concerning a leap is shorter than Mage.
It is the troublesome enemy who makes
a "miracle ring" leap.
Gold king The monster which the wizard has
made one after another.
The body is heavy, and a motion will be sped up,
if it turns out that it is in the same stage
in response to LINA, although it is blunt.
As for a problem, a "miracle ring" don't be effective.
