Just found something not mentioned in the faqs section.

1) The Wizard has a strong attack before the armor upgrade. Though it looks exactly the same as the normal attack. So as the Wizard, always hold up while attacking.

2) The Wizard is as powerful as the Barbarian after the weapon upgrade, his projectile does the same damage as the flail. The Huntress is slightly weaker, but she attacks super fast.

3) Powerups and strength scroll has no effect on charge attacks.

4) You can finish the game using the Barbarian of course, try attack while jumping to do a higher jump. You can practice in a place without enemies.

5) Strength scroll allows you to do double damage, unless you are using a charge attack.

6) Blast damage normal enemies instead of killing them. So it has effect against stronger enemies, just you need to land more than one hit. It has no effect against bosses, at least not working on Manax.

7) Damages of attacks.

The red caveman type enemy has 8 hit points and a normal goblin has 2. The vulture boss has 50 HP for each forms. Your player has 255 HP and the weakest fire ball takes 10 points from you, it doesn't matter since the damage to the lifebar meter is visible.

n - normal attack
s - strong attack
c - charge
0 - no enhance
1 - 1st enhance
2 - 2nd enhance

Before Weapon upgrade:

Huntress: n0=2, n1=3, n2=4,s1=3, s2=4,s3=5
Barbarian: n0=3, n1=4, n2=5, s1=4, s2=5, s3=6
Wizard: n0=1, n2=2, n3=4, s1=2, s2=3, s3=5

After Weapon upgrade:

Huntress: n0=5, n1=6, n2=7,c=10x3
Barbarian: n0=6, n1=7, n2=8, s1=7, s2=8, s3=9
Wizard: n0=6, n2=7, n3=8, c=30


That was some really great info. We applied some of this knowledge in getting new speedrun records for this phenomenal game. A lot of guides don't even know the information about the wizard up attack. And strength doubling attack helped us beat Manax in record time with a new strat :)

replying to Z_E_N's post. it can be beat, it just will take a little more RNG for the enemy to throw the projectile. go to his left side and hit him with an attack and hope he shoots it. if he gets to close to you on the left side hop to the other wall to drag him over then repeat trying

re-reply to Z_E_N. guaranteed way - jump over his spawn away from the door, jump back over him towards the door, let him corner you, jump him, run to end of platform and jump off starting your super jump, the timing works out where you land right as it's hitting the wall.

i didnt do it perfect still got hit a couple places but can be seen in essence here:
