Coin flip

From Fear and Hunger Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Coin flips are a common game mechanic throughout the Fear and Hunger series. In certain situations, the game will prompt the player to choose between heads or tails, before flipping a coin. Choosing correctly will generally reward the player, while choosing incorrectly will have negative consequences.

Whenever the player is prompted to flip a coin, they may hold down the SHIFT key when making their selection to add a lucky coin, improving their odds from 50/50 to 75/25.

Coin flips can have a myriad of different effects, In the overworld, coin flips may be used to determine whether or not a player gets loot from a container, or whether they fall into a hidden trap. In combat, certain enemies can trigger coin-flip attacks, which may deal high damage or instantly kill the player should they fail it. Some of these can be avoided by preemptively having characters use the "guard" action.
