Heart. Worth one extra life.

Snowflake. Freezes enemies in place. Watch out, they thaw fast!

Safe Zone. This is where both players begin. Neither enemies nor items can enter the safe zone, and neither can you once you leave.

Enemy Spawn Port. Each enemy has its own spawn port. When the light starts to flash, get away fast!

The Tunnel can be used to teleport to the oposite side of the room. Careful, enemies can use it too.
