Thank you Xot to sum up the differences between races, level and player type.
I'm afraid there aren't any other characteristics associated to them. But i dream every night i've missed something and gollumer is the best energy producter...
Maybe some day dream comes true
There are no other differences, except perhaps (not sure) for slight player-mountain collision differences due to differently shaped sprites. The shape of the player's sprite has no effect on Wampus catching.
You're alright. Mountain-Player collision detection is hardware, so the sprite can make some (very light) differences. I've found some sprites have a shape making it easier to catch the wampus (visual help to align the sprite with the dot), but it's personal
