Thank you for your feed back! I agree with the battle system being a bit tedious, it needs some fine tuning. Babes can use magic attacks too to break up the constant attack mashing. I may be able to add a few more special moves before the comp closes, but they take a while to make with graphics and all.
And I completely forgot about the slow event at traveler's pass! I will look into those right now!
Either way, the game will be made into a full release, regardless of the competition. All the feed back here will also help in the completion of the full game!
