That is exactly what is being done, as a matter of fact! (It looks rather amusing if you're around 60 health, heh.)

A man after my own heart, then! At any rate, I'm gonna download this and try it out since my internet's finally stable after weeks of garbage connection. So many Christmas gifts this year!

Honestly, I find the random flasks/vials to be more annoying than entertaining. In the case of the vials, even if you know which ones have which effects for that level, there are still sometimes vials placed in narrow corridors where you can't get around them. "Oh, what's that? You just took a nasty hit to the face and are at critical health? HERE, HAVE A POISON VIAL THAT YOU CAN'T AVOID!"
Since you can only carry one of each flask with you between levels, and they're actually not as common as you'd think, you can't even experiment to find out which one does what and still actually be able to use it when you need it.

I'd like to suggest linking the like-colored flasks and vials somehow. They'd still be randomized between levels, but you'd know the effects of a flask by using a vial of the same color, and vice-versa.
in other words, the effects of each color are randomized as they are now, but PER GAME (not individual level) the vial and flask effects would pair up, so once you figure out what the combos are, you know that (for example) if a certain color vial is time freeze, that color flask will be explosive for that level... at least until you start a new game, where time freeze might be linked with super strength, and so on.

It would still have a randomness/luck factor to it, but would minimize the frustration and make the flasks actually practical to use.

That actually sounds better. I should probably ask Snarboo about that.

If you're finding that Gargoyle Leaders are not dropping Style Points like all other Gargoyles should be, that is a known bug and has been fixed for the next version.

The gauntlet thingy that serves as the last weapon looks kinda weird, a bit too... Patchworky? It's not as seamless as the other weapons.

The effects of each flask and vial are randomized for each level. One of the vials, I think, contains a brief time-stop effect, but of course, what color it is will vary depending on the level you're on.
