Tower of The Wizard: Gameboy Adventure Tower of The Wizard: Gameboy Adventure

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I pressed 'R' by accident and the whole game restarted. T_T

The game is good, but the wall-jumping controls are really bad to a point where it just becomes tedious and sometimes unresponsive. Try playing super meatboy and see how nice it works there. ( Yes, I've read other reviews where the answer was that on mobile it's worse, but that's not a valid answer. You can do better. )

I like the difficulty, it reminds me of old Game Boy games, it's great. Just improve the controls a tiny bit.

Also thumbs up for HaxeFlixel.



Fire Plus Bomb Fire Plus Bomb

I like the concept, it's very unique. Gets a bit stale quickly, but that can be solved. It has potential. Some suggestions :

a) Auto-play the tutorial on first play ( but make it skippable ), started the game without knowing there's a tutorial. Was surprised then later that there was one
b) Combos are not explained well enough in the tutorial and I seem to be too slow today to understand them fully. E.g. first you stack 2 flames, then you are supposed to make a combo right afterwards. What is a combo in this case? Is it multiple explosions in one move, or is it exploding stacked flames, etc...? Is a combo simply 3 flames over 3 bombs that are next to each other? Seems really hard to make combos in the real game in that case.
c) And maybe overthink the combo system, e.g. allow for different kinds of combos to make smaller luck moves more rewarding. It's all about rewards that aren't too impossible. For example :
- Bigger explosion if flames are stacked
- Followup explosions of bombs that are in the row like in bomberman, right now bombs that are taken away in an explosion just explode in the same direction(?) - make them explode in all 4 directions instead ( even with a smaller flame, but at least you have a stack-combo feeling )
- Stronger explosion if you drop the flame on the bomb
e) Maybe wait with the 1 and 2 armor tiles until turn 10 and 20
f) Reshuffle board if no more moves available ( lol )

Cheers to your unique concept - 4 stars mainly to that and hopefully you can make it more enjoyable

As I'm learning Thai currently, this is a nice reminder game of the consonants!

You could offer more indicators based on high-class/low-class,middle-tone consonants with different fire colors. But it's nice, thanks
