Movement

A jump is nearly twice as fast as walking, if it carries you two tiles ahead. Turning takes several frames to complete, so although jumps are faster than walking, if you need to turn twice to get one extra jump, you are overall slower.
Jumping has other oddities, of the sort that, after the game determines you are moving two tiles ahead, nothing stops you from landing two tiles ahead, other than an interrupting animation (warp tile between you and destination, specifically those that triggers the warp animation). Useful for bypassing monsters in difficult terrain, or jumping on the training poles in Ruins Area 5.
It is also possible to jump inside of a closed door in Ruins Area 7, due to the warp tiles there not triggering a warp animation. No other strange behavior observed -- Walls still block you, and you can simply walk to an open tile.

Standing over a gap

Fall into a pit. Attempt to jump out as you do. If you die from the pit, a Ring of Life will be consumed, but you will be floating over the pit. This trick requires you to die, and thus consume a Ring of Life.
It is useful for opening a door (such as those on Fortress 4F) or other actions that require you to be outside of a pit. The number of places discovered where this is useful is few.

EXP allocation

Every monster has a specific level. Hitting with a physical attack adds to Arm Strength EXP per hit, hitting with a magical attack adds to Knowledge per hit, and defeating the monster adds to level. The difference of the monster's level and the affected stat is the amount of EXP awarded; If this would be zero or negative, you instead get one EXP.
Rather than give the EXP immediately, this EXP is allocated one point per one or two frames, depending on current action. This means that, when against an enemy with high EXP value for the stat, it is possible to have many levels worth of EXP that hasn't yet improved the stat. As the stat is still low, continuing to gain EXP for it will award you the faster rate of a low stat.

Message box

While text is still being drawn in the box, Varik can't act. The text box can be instantly finished if you press a direction with the control pad. Left or right buttons are recommended to speed up text.

Many objects, notably monsters, begin at address 7E03C7. Each object is 94 bytes in size. Varik's barrier spell takes the first slot, Varik's projectiles take the next three slots, then Varik himself takes the slot after that. Monsters take up the following 31 slots. There is room for monster projectiles, but this hasn't been measured at this time.
