Blinx the Time Sweeper Game Manual

This monster typically perches on a ball or other bit of trash. It can throw trash at you, so be ready to dodge its attack. Or use your sweeper to pick up the things it throws.

Dust Herders are odd-looking, acrobatic monsters that balance themselves on fancy balls while shooting trash while dodging their attacks. When the battle is over, steal the ball. It's worth 100 gold at the trash exchange.
