Sgt. Byrd: Iceberg Aerobatics
There are eight of each, except for the thieves. First time wins an egg, second with a Light Gem.
- In Astor's Dungeon, there are markings on the wall, which seem to be Astor's way of marking how many days since he was thrown in there. There are some groups of 32, along with two groups of 25. Altogether, Astor has been locked up for 217 days.
- You need Supercharge to complete this level, which means you need at least 40 Light Gems.
