<tips>
    <tip>Simply pick the same color as a friend to play together as a clan. Each of you will still control his or her own hedgehogs but they’ll win or lose together.</tip>
    <tip>Some weapons might do only low damage but they can be a lot more devastating in the right situation. Try to use the Desert Eagle to knock multiple hedgehogs into the water.</tip>
    <tip>If you’re unsure what to do and don’t want to waste ammo, skip one round. But don’t let too much time pass as there will be Sudden Death!</tip>
    <tip>Want to save ropes? Release the rope in mid air and then shoot again. As long as you don’t touch the ground or miss a shot you’ll reuse your rope without wasting ammo!</tip>

    <tip>You're bored of default gameplay? Try one of the missions—they'll offer different gameplay depending on the one you picked.</tip>
    <tip>By default the game will always record the last game played as a demo. Select “Local Game” and pick the “Demos” button on the lower right corner to play or manage them.</tip>

    <tip>If your graphics card isn’t able to provide hardware-accelerated OpenGL, try to enable the low quality mode to improve performance.</tip>

    <tip>Please don't install Hedgewars on computers you don’t own (school, university, work, etc.) unless you got permission. We don't want you to get into any trouble.</tip>
    <tip>Hedgewars can be perfect for short games during breaks. Just ensure you don’t add too many hedgehogs or use an huge map. Reducing time and health might help as well.</tip>
    <tip>No hedgehogs were harmed in making this game.</tip>
    <tip>There are three different jumps available. Tap [high jump] twice to do a very high/backwards jump.</tip>
    <tip>Afraid of falling off a cliff? Hold down [precise] to turn [left] or [right] without actually moving.</tip>
    <tip>Some weapons require special strategies or just lots of training, so don’t give up on a particular tool if you miss an enemy once.</tip>
    <tip>Most weapons won’t work once they touch the water. The Homing Bee as well as the Cake are exceptions to this.</tip>
    <tip>The Old Limburger only causes a small explosion. However the wind affected smelly cloud can poison lots of hogs at once.</tip>
    <tip>The Piano Strike is the most damaging air strike. You’ll lose the hedgehog performing it, so there’s a huge downside as well.</tip>
    <tip>The Homing Bee can be tricky to use. Its turn radius depends on its velocity, so try to not use full power.</tip>
    <tip>Sticky Mines are a perfect tool to create small chain reactions knocking enemy hedgehogs into dire situations … or water.</tip>
    <tip>The Hammer is most effective when used on bridges or girders. Hit hogs will just break through the ground.</tip>
    <tip>If you’re stuck behind an enemy hedgehog, use the Hammer to free yourself without getting damaged by an explosion.</tip>
    <tip>The Cake’s maximum walking distance depends on the ground it has to pass. Use [attack] to detonate it early.</tip>
    <tip>The Flamethrower is a weapon but it can be used for tunnel digging as well.</tip>
    <tip>Use the Molotov Cocktail or Flamethrower to temporary keep hedgehogs from passing terrain such as tunnels or platforms.</tip>

    <tip>Feel free to draw your own graves, hats, flags or even maps and themes! But note that you’ll have to share them somewhere to use them online.</tip>
    <tip>Keep your video card drivers up to date to avoid issues playing the game.</tip>
    <tip>Heads or tails? Type “/rnd” in the lobby and you’ll find out. Also “/rnd rock paper scissors” works!</tip>
    <tip>You’re able to associate Hedgewars-related files (savegames and demo recordings) with the game to launch them right from your favorite file or web browser.</tip>
    <tip>Dud mines are not harmless: Although their timer is broken, they can still explode if they took too much abuse!</tip>
    <tip>Love is hot! Use Seduction to thaw frozen hedgehogs.</tip>
    <tip>Smoke coming from a barrel is an indicator that it is low on “health” and even small amounts of damage might cause it to burst.</tip>
    <tip>Barrels start with 60 health and take damage like hedgehogs, so they need some abuse until they explode.</tip>
    <tip>Need more bounce power? Change the bounce strength of grenades, cluster bombs, old limburgers and mines while holding [precise] and pressing one of the timer keys.</tip>
    <tip>Did you forget the goals or game modifiers inside the game? Hit the pause or quit key to review them again!</tip>
    <tip>You can punch, whip and hammer other things than just hedgehogs. Hit them all!</tip>
    <tip>If not mentioned otherwise, mines normally explode after 3 seconds.</tip>
    <tip>In King Mode, your king will start out healthier, stronger and more resistant to damage and blows than the minions.</tip>
    <tip>In King Mode, the king will take damage each turn when there are no minions left in the team.</tip>
    <tip>The whip also hits hedgehogs and objects behind a thin wall.</tip>
    <tip>A cleaver deals more damage the faster it’s moving.</tip>
    <tip>You can drop cakes from cliffs, but you have to stand very close to the edge, so be careful.</tip>
    <tip>Use your rope to push away other hedgehogs, e.g. by sliding on the ground. This technique is known as “rope-knocking”.</tip>
    <tip>Don’t stand still on an icy slope, or you will slip away. Alternatively, you can hold down [precise].</tip>
    <tip>In the lands of Snow and Christmas, the snow piles up over time, unless the land is indestructible.</tip>
    <tip>Be aware in lands of Snow and Christmas, because girders are made of slippery ice.</tip>
    <tip>The retreat time depends on the weapon you used. Be careful, some weapons don’t have a retreat time and immediately end your turn!</tip>
    <tip>With a bit of skill, you can knock hedgehogs by jumping out from under them.</tip>
    <tip>A timed attack with shoryuken, pick hammer or sine gun can cancel fall damage.</tip>
    <tip>Your hedgehog does not collide with projectiles while it is in mid-air.</tip>
    <tip>Holes left by drill rockets, sniper rifles and the Desert Eagle are large enough to fire portals through them—if your aim is precise enough.</tip>
    <tip>Collect a first aid kit to cure your poisoned hedgehog.</tip>
    <tip>You can also collect crates while using RC plane, shoryuken, pick hammer and kamikaze.</tip>
    <tip>Be careful not to blow yourselves up when using a blow torch to approach a crate.</tip>
    <tip>Air mines remain passive within the first 5 seconds of a turn before they start seeking for hedgehogs.</tip>
    <tip>Keep a safe distance from air mines! Once an air mine starts chasing you, it’s hard to escape without utilities.</tip>
    <tip>Air mines explode after a quarter of the time set for regular mines.</tip>
    <tip>When a cleaver in the landscape receives 30 or more damage in a single blow, there’s a chance it falls off. This chance increases with the damage.</tip>
    <tip>Mind the wind, because flames and some projectiles are affected by wind.</tip>
    <tip>Use a blow torch to push hedgehogs and mines with a long timer.</tip>
    <tip>Running with a blow torch into a barrel is an explosive recipe for disaster!</tip>
