Battlemage

Battlemage is a Platformer RPG, where you play as a freshly trained member of the Order of Battlemages. The Battlemages have a long history of fighting off evil, protecting the world from destruction for countless centuries. But now, a deadly threat is rising, and you alone have the potential to stop it. Do you have the skill with your sword and concentration, to destroy the evil undead forces and their Lich Masters? Can you singlehandedly take down, without a doubt, the most powerful beings ever to exist? The fate of the world is in your hands, young mage.

File Size:
2.76 MB

Game Maker Version:
GM8 Pro

Gameplay: You play as a battlemage, who fights wielding both magic and a blade. Level up and spend your skill points to what best fits your playstyle; Strength, Defense, and Intellect. Perform various platforming challenges, solve simple puzzles, and face powerful and challenging bosses. Fight in strategic combat, which depending on your stats the battles will go differently.
So far, there are 3 bosses and some dialog after the third boss, as well as a sneak peak to whats to come. I have done everything I could to make sure future save files will be compatible, and so they shall! However if something happens and they are not, I will make a savefile up for download leaving off where the last demo left you, and with no skill points spent. :)

Controls:
Most of the controls are shown ingame, but its good to know anyway:
Arrow keys move
Z to unsheath/sheath your sword
X to attack
C to interact/talk
Because I havent yet implemented a save system, press F5 to save and F6 to load.
Click on a plus sign to add a point to that skill. You get one point per level.
F4 to toggle fullscreen. Note; I recommend playing in fullscreen, I personally find the experience better. Although I realize this is personal taste, so I've disabled it at startup.

Legal bump. :lol:
Hoping to get some feedback on things to improve, what you may have liked about the game, or bug reports, although I tested very thoroughly so there shouldn't be any bugs. :D

I think that one of the problems you might have is the game looking very visually unappealing. Even though i wouldn't usually suggest this, maybe try starting a graphics thread?
