Kill monsters to gain upgraded weapons, ammo, cash, health and food. Ammo and cash is automatically added to your ammo pool and purse respectively, everything else
is accessible via the inventory screen. Right click to open "Chests" (chests are the yellow cubes on the ground).
Find the helicopter and Walk into the Big Green area to enter the next level.

Open doors with right click, unlock doors with e

You can hold a maximum of ten items.

Your ammo counter looks a little like this "Ammo 9/25" - The first number is the remaining bullets in the clip.
The second is your overall ammo pool.

You can reload your gun at any time! Reloading your gun WILL DUMP ANY REMAINING BULLETS IN THE MAG. This is an intended feature.
Guns have their stats generated randomly. It is possible to get a gun with a magazine of 1 bullet..
Some guns are better than others! Sometimes their stats will seem unrealistic. That's just the way the cookie crumbles.

You can kick more things than just enemies...
