Posted by on

It's been more than 2 months since last version, I've been REALLY busy but finally managed to scrap some time. The new version is HOT, read below for details!

Play now!

New Magic System!

There are 41 spells distributed in 4 schools of magic with 8 circles of power each. You player class determines the maximum circle of power you can reach for each school.

Powerful Magic

In order to cast spells you need to spend your Magic Points, your class determines your starting MP and you can extend them within the game as a stat upgrade. Ethyl and Methyl potions allow recovering MP. You also recover half your spent MP on level up.

Spells

Every time you level up you can either learn a new spell (from your current circle or power or the next one) or get a stat upgrade.

Learning Spells

The wiki has been updated with the list of spells.

New equipment class: Headgear!

You can now equip helmets, hats and other kinds of headgear.

Headgear protects you from Head, Neck and Face hits which can be lethal. It can also enhance your stats or provide special effects like scaring your enemies or protecting you from diseases.

You can also wear it just to look cool in the dungeon.

New User Experience: Tablet

For Android (and iOS, in the future), you can now pick between the phone optimised version (a.k.a. the Chibi UI) or the more complete tablet experience which includes the map and the inspector. I prefer the Chibi one, but now you can choose :)

Cool game, the pixelgraphics is kinda cool. Sad that I cannot make the first boss my slave but otherwise good. My favorite character/class must be the arcane master/wizard :)

I give the game 4 out of 5. (but I rarely say 5/5).
