Powerups


One thing I don't ever seem to be good at, is good powerups.
"Double shot" and "rapid fire"
"Double jump" and "float"
And then I have to go to extremes, like "ghost/phase" and "reversed controls".

What's a good selection of powerups?

Makes the player stick to the spot. Not a good one to collect!
