There are four Powerups avalible in the Jedi Academy gameplay.
Light Side Enlightenment
This Powerup can be picked only by the Ligh Side users (you must have the Light Side chosen in your Force Powers chosing menu). When picked up for the short time it will give its user acces to the level (rank) 3 of all Light Side Forces (even those, who haven't been bought by him).
The player having this enlightenment will be glowing with the bright white aura. He himself will also see a symbol of white-blue eye on his screen and the counter showing how much time remained left before the Powerup wears off.
If the user dies untill the Enlightenment effect wears off the holocorn cube with this Powerup will drop on the ground next to its previous user body. It can be picked up by any other Light Side user than and used for the amount of time that remained in it.
After this time the Enlightenment will wear off and its effect will be lost.
Dark Side Enlightenment
Works the same way as its Light Side version (see above) with that difference it can only be picked up by the Dark Side users and it maxes the levels of all Dark Powers.
The player having this enlightenment will be glowing by the dark black aura. He himself will also see a symbol of red eye on his screen and the counter showing how much time remained left before the Powerup will wear off.
This Powerup when picked up will rapidly increase the Force regeneration speed of its owner. Pay attention though, as the Forces blocking the regeneration like Saber Throw, Absorption, Protection or Rage will still block it regardless the Boon effect.
As with the other Powerups the user will reveive a glowing aura aroud him along with the timer and the glowing light icon on the screen. If the user dies the Boon will drop down as well allowing someone other to use the remaining time.
In the Star Wars universe Ysalamiri was a rare kind of lizard with the strange ability of distracting any Force around it. Anyone who came close to it was unable to use the Force.
In Jedi Academy the Ysalamiri is a pickup loking like a small dino/lizard. When picked up it will protect it's owner from any Force Power (he cannot be pushed, pulled, gripped, drained from or stroken by the lightning nor MindTricked). However, the owner himself will be unable to use the Force as well.
For the time of holding it player will be covered by the yellow-gold protection-bubble-like aura. He will see an icon of Ysalamiri and the timer to the effect end on his screen. As other Powerups ysalamiri will drop from the killed player allowing other player to use the time remaining in it.
