Pro tip: Keeping your gun fully powered up in Fester's Quest

Today's Pro Tip has some pretty big .gif files, hit 'Read More' if you want to read the rest of it

In Fester's Quest you have red and blue Gun powerups. The blue ones increase your gun's level and the red ones decrease it. And, while most of the levels of shots you get look kind of neat, you'll quickly discover that most of them are completely useless when you get into close quarters.

So it's a great idea to spend a few extra minutes at the beginning of each life walking around and farming powerups, so that when you do get into a tight spot you can actually hit something

Otherwise you're going to spend a lot of time losing your life, continuing, and backtracking for no good reason.
