Do my little eyes spot a Megumin? :D

Loving the game so far, but for some reason I got soft-locked in level 8. After the wave ended and the witch showed up I could not start the wave anymore. Tried to build/sell towers to reset.

The music is catchy get your head bobbing instantly.

(edit: just understood the 100% chance for xy thing)

At the moment I only have one "issue" with the whole game. It'd be nice to be able to chose which towers to merge, if that fits into your vision of the game and the token gods.

The gfx work is spot on, love how enemies bop their heads to the music! The game looks clean and nice and the menu backdrop is absolutely amazing!

Nice work, the overall polish and fancy title screen are quite impressive.

I did notice there's a typo in the thread title, though: WitchRaft rather than WitchCraft.

@Achie72 I did not expect she will be found out so quick :D but yes, a little tribute.
I'll try to reproduce soft-lock, I did not saw it myself for now.

"chose which towers to merge" - oof, I'm afraid I don't have tokens for that and I want to squeeze an in-game tutorial.

Thank you for the review!

@JadeLombax thank you, fixed!

Yep, we are a lover of anime and can recognize famous figures quite quickly, @unikotoast. :)

Lovely Tower Defense game. We don't have enough of them for Pico-8. Gold star work !

It took me 5-10 minutes to learn how the game worked but after that I was able to get a good run.

A small patch based on feedback:

  • Mouse is turned on from the start and can be used in the wave selection menu, the game can be controlled w/o keyboard at all
  • Opening the portal requires button press
  • Added highlight for the second tower that will be merged
  • Added red highlight on the ground where a tower cannot be placed
  • Added tutorial texts

@dw817 this is nice to hear, thank you!

@Dvan that's a lot of burgers, really good run!

I think the mouse update overwrites other controls in the wave selection menu. Sadly no other works for me in this current version (2). Other parts are fine with other controls, only menu seems to suffer from this isse.

@Achie72 you are right, fixed, thanks.

P#116892 2022-09-04 20:04

I really enjoyed this. Sprites are lovely. Random towers is not something I'm used to but worked well. Well done.

Great job on this one. Not a lot of TD games on P8 and this one is certainly one I've spent the most time with. The random towers is the best part, even if it does take some control away from the player - but I like that my thought is put towards dealing with what I'm given rather than a lot of upfront deciding.

P#117146 2022-09-10 15:30

All the levels are beautifully decorated, have enjoyable gameplay, and culminate in an exciting boss fight, making these the best remakes and original versions of the series game.

P#117337 2022-09-13 03:48

Well made game! I believe this is the first TD game in which I'm happy to sell my towers. I'm not happy with random tower build but the sell feature and wave control etc are more than enough to compensate.
After couple tries, I managed to complete this game:

Planting flowers paid off really well! :D

Great game, as usual I like your style!
Only one advice, when you start the wave and choose the "bonus" for it, the witch sprite hide the text, maybe you should find a way to fix that?
And a difficulty option would be neat as well!

P#117400 2022-09-14 09:21 ( Edited 2022-09-14 09:21)

really cool game with lovely art and some depth to master!

P#119079 2022-10-14 01:16

Great game

P#119269 2022-10-18 21:13

I don't get what the quests are

P#120439 2022-11-10 09:49

So very well done; what a lovely game. Thanks for sharing!
