explr 0.5 is out and it is the biggest update so far! 0.5 brings magic, swords and waraxes, bows and arrows, enemies, and more!
The new enemies are slimes! They are usually pretty passive, until you come close to them. Then, they will start following you. They hop around, making it very difficult to hit them with a ranged attack, but they have very little health.
There a few weapons added to fight the slimes too! I've uploaded a tutorial on what each weapon does here. The weapons are waraxes, swords, bows, and magic staffs. This is the sort of direction I want the game to go, giving it an RPG-ish feel.
Along with all that, there are also plenty of performance and big fixes.
You can download 0.5 in the downloads section, and view the full changelog here.
