Arcade wizard game made in 48 hours for GMTK Jam.
Press Z to jump, X to shoot magic missile. Down+Z to drop through platforms.
Smash all the gems with your magic to advance to the next level. When you shoot the missile, you're left vulnerable, so be careful! See how far you can get and set the high score.
I'm surprised this doesn't have any comments. The force field/missle mechanic is really clever, and I like that there's a bit of a puzzle element to the levels. Even though I've died a lot I feel compelled to keep playing, so I think the difficulty curve is good. And I like the graphics and the music. This is a great game, and the fact that you made it in 48 hours is even more impressive!
Thanks for playing!
Some of the levels turned out pretty difficult, especially towards the end. There are only 16 levels and then it wraps around with increased difficulty, so I think it's ok that levels 11 and 13 are pretty hard. I still haven't figured out a good strategy for level 16 myself. I added it like 10 minutes before the deadline :-)
