Barrier

Barriers are extremely dangerous defensive devices that appear in Catacomb Armageddon and Catacomb Apocalypse

In Catacomb Armageddon[edit]

Approach at your peril!

Developed by Nemesis's minions, both as a security device to keep would-be heroes out, and to keep dangerous monsters in, these devious devices generate powerful electrical shocks. In addition to preventing enemies from moving past, a Barrier can also inflict terrifying damage on the player if they try to bypass it, bringing low even a player at 100% health in a little over a second! They can be identified from afar by the arcs of energy jumping between the emitter posts.

Fortunately, Barriers are not indestructible; they can be taken down by firing on them repeatedly with Magick Missiles or firing off spell orbs at one. A barrier has the equivalent of 20 hit points, and goes down permanently once destroyed. They first appear in The Demon Hold.

In Catacomb Apocalypse[edit]

Fittingly for a Catacomb game that involves traipsing through time, Barriers reappear in Catacomb Apocalypse, in The Ancient Node of Time, where they are used to keep Nemesis' stockpile of Blue Demons on lockdown. They are just as devastating as they were in Armageddon and have the same amount of HP (20).

They're actually a little more beneficial to the player in Apocalypse, because they block the Wizards' line of fire.
