Took me a couple tries to figure it out, but even that was cool.

nice game, i m not going to do any other criticism, but as everybody said, u know hmm...

What am I supposed to do? HELP. By the way, did you create your engine from scratch? In C/C++ or another programming language. If you did, congrats!!

Pretty fun, but as others have said the lack of a tutorial made it difficult :p

Thanks for the comments guys!

This is what I'm going to add to the game:

  • Restart button to the both defeat and victory screens
  • Simple sound effects (bfxr ftw!)

These are small changes and I hope it's not against the rules of the challenge.

I doubt I'll be able to squeeze a tiny tutorial into it though, but maybe an overlay with labels like "Action points", "Your health" etc in the beginning of the game will be enough?

Nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Zero sound design is a bit disappointing, but the visuals are well thought out. I do wish there was a tutorial and a replay button (as everyone else has mentioned) but overall, a very fun little strategy game! Could even be a mobile title with a little more development.

Awesome game! I do love the balance of the game and the art!

My complains of the game are the same as the ones mentioned below,with another one: There should be a tutorial at the beginning of the game =D

First time I played I didn't get it and failed horribly but second time I won!
I think it's really cool mini game, you may consider building a pvp version for mobile and it would sell I assure.
One nice thing would be to add a restart option but it's not that important.

This was fun and fairly challenging! I think I lost 4 times before my first win, but I do think it is well-balanced between luck and tactics (for such a short battle). The graphics are nice, especially the "defeat" screen with the little sparks of fire rising from the castle. It would have been nice if there was a "try again" option at the ending screen that restarted it, though. :-)

I love it but here comes some criticism:
The graphics are nice and the gameplay idea is neat, but the lack of music and sound makes it feel dull. Also the need to restart the game completely after victory/defeat should be fixed.
