Good concept and art. But there are few problems with the controls. One problem is that when shooting the character can't move which makes it difficult to shoot and dodge enemies at the same time.

When I first designed the bow and arrow, i've choosed to make it a bit impractical, to enphatize the use of mage-turrets.
I didn't have enough time to balance and playtest, but I regret it a lot, and will redesign the entire bow mechanics.

Thanks!
I still believe that graphics may be upgraded a little for a definitive version, but i'm pretty happy that you liked it!

I love the art style and music! Combining the mages together was a lot of fun but sometimes i wish I could take a mage back instead of guessing. enemies were very difficulty to take down. All around fun game! good job!

Really cute, bit buggy, very pretty, and extremely fun and creative, good job on this!

The mages where a bit buggy and not always doing their job but when it works the game is fun. The concept is very interesting. Good Idea!

I agree with @MarcDaze!

Great concept, really liked the story elements, but the mages only worked for me in the first level. No other mages did anything that was advertised (can they be sent back to the temple for repurposing? )
I  could rush the first 2 levels but then I couldn't progress.

If you Press R you can retry the level. And there's passwords on the botton of the page. You can put the codes on the white bar at the start screen and go for desired levels.

Still, Thanks for the reviews!

Good idea of combining mages and nice visual/audio.

Maybe need some balance tweaks, because melee enemy feels like steamroller. Need some polishing, but interesting and quite deep.

Developer

Thanks a lot!

Took me a lot of time to fix major bugs. Minor bugs and balance, i've barely touched it.

But I will improve some things with time now! Thanks for the review!
