Warlock's Gauntlet is a dynamic, top-down shooter (well, spell-caster) game, placing you - the player - in the role of a battlemage. The hero travels through maps filled with monsters, gaining experience and learning new spells. The game is similar to titles like Gauntlet or Diablo. The game features 25 random-generated levels which should amount to about three hours of gameplay; the player character can find over 60 distinct spells. There is no networked multiplayer, but the game includes a hot-seat two-player mode. The game available entirely for free - the code is open source and the assets are licensed CC.
Not bad but needs to be more polished...
- I don't like the skill sytem, maybe it's me but looks hard to raise a spelltype without sink one or two of the others; BTW, I can't notice any difference raising the "Mana" skill.
- Needs more info in the stats screen (mana used per spell, total mana, total health, etc).
- A few of storyline would be appreciated.
- When you take a spell only to know it you must lost one of the four spells you can carry, that sucks.
Other than that it's fun to play.
