edit: I think I fixed a bug in the game found by bubblybill.

edit2: Fixed a glitch found by Bubblejuice, made the first levels a little bit easyer, and made it take you to the menu when you die instead of starting the game over.

edit3: The escape button now exits the spell menu and when it is pressed in the game the user is asked if he/she wants to quit.
Thank You,
Excalibur


edit 4: If you have an account on yoyogames please rate it. I would love to see it rated more there. Thank you.

Wow. Umm...

Cool idea. But the enemies kill me about 2x as fast as I can kill them... on the first level. So I can't review any more. Heh.

Just a hint, often people underestimate the difficulty of a game, because they have much more experience with it.

However, I really liked the games style a lot. I request difficulty levels in the next version.

Good luck!

Excalibur. Tomkin I don't see how the game is so hard are you useing your fisrt spell (because it sucks it is only there if you don't have any mana). I can't do difficulty levels but if you have any ideas on how I could make the first level a little easyer I might try them out.
edit: Read the blue update in the first post I fixed a few things in the game.
Thank you for your feedback.

I tested it, and was pretty cool... came to lvl 3 or 4 with first spell only.. and than i figured i have more :D (read the how to play badly it seems) However when I finished lvl 4 (and i did it twice) lvl 5 doesnt unlock... other than that game was pretty fun .. I would only decrease hp of thouse things on walls on lvl 4 as killing them was anoying

Awsome! The style is pretty good. You don't see too many magic platformers, makes this fairly original. The one feature I liked is the amount of spells you have. I use the mind spell, dark spell, and th advanced light spell alot. What level do you have to be to go to the 5th? I loved it, 9/10!

Thank you all for the good comments. If you really like it please rate it on yoyogames for me because not very many people have rated it. Thank you. I am also considering making a Deep Magic 2 or somthing like that. Thank you. The reason there aren't very many levels is because I made this game for a contest and I didn't have time to make more. If I make a second version there will be more levels.

Adding difficulty levels is easy. Just say (for example, in the create event pf an enemy, or wherever its stats are set up)

HP = 10 + global.diff * 5
Mana = 7 + global.diff * 3
Attack = 3 + global.diff * 2
Defense = 4 + global.diff * 2

And so the lower the global.diff variable, the lower its stats and therefore the easier it is to defeat.

Oh yeah, and I suck at platformers, so take everything I say with a grain of salt.

Good luck!

Well I'm more than half way through, and Level 11 (had to take Exams and Work and stuff). One little problem I had was that the Esc button exits the game. It kind of gets annoying when I'm looking at spells then try to exit the screen with Esc button, only to exit the game and lose my progress. I think it would do the game good to make the Esc button either bring you back to the game or bring you to a screen that says "Return to Title Screen?" or "Are you sure you want to Quit?". Other than that, I'm still working my way through the game and gaining all sorts of neat little spells. :D

picc84:
If you get stuck try the How to Play. And if you are trying to get where I think you are trying to get to, you can't do that yet. You have to have a certain spell.
Aztec:
I will make it so that the exit button closes the spell menu but doesn't ext the game (Maybe I should have put this in the WIP form first. I thought I had it finished lol).
Tomkin:
I will Think about adding a difficulty level. You are right it is easy and it would add some replay value to the game. Let me think about it for a while and I will see what I can do.

You need to be level 15 in order to enter level 15.

Also, holy crap the last bos is hard...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Try the Bomb or Rebound spell; They do a ton of damage for low MP. Alternately, you could try the Sun spell, I haven't tried that against him, but it did well on level 4, as did the Flame spell.
Also, once you get to level 20 and recieve the Portal spell, he's a total pushover. Too bad you can't fight him again without starting the whole game over...
Anyways, great game, I just wish there were more uses for the seed spell, as well as more levels. The last few felt disappointing, and there wasn't even a good ending scene. A bit of a letdown at the end, but surely the sequel will be even better. ^_^
