Cinco Paus e um novo labirinto de morte aleatória de Michael Brough, criador de 868-HACK, Imbroglio, e mais.

You have five magic wands but you do not know what they do. Try to figure out their effects and go through all five zones. Take the treasures too if you can!

Cinco Paus is a new procedural labyrinth by Michael Brough, creator of 868-HACK, Imbroglio, et al.

The short descriptions of abilities found within the game are in Portuguese. Thankfully, most of them are straightforward and self-explanatory. If however you get stuck figuring out what something does, translations can be found here.

Randomised wands that reveal themselves with use.

Bonus difficulty mechanic: No English translation for wand abilities. You can still work out what they do though.

I think it’s MB being a weird freak and his cute way of letting us know the text is irrelevant as all wand effects are indicated with symbols.

The text in the description run through Google translate sums the game up perfectly!

My scores don't seem to be registering. I can see the global scores and my friends (slamraman and Lord Gek) but not my own. Anyone else experiencing this? Running last iOS 10 on 6+.

EDIT: Game has crashed a couple times when checking highscore boards. Not sure if it's just an issue with my device or not. Will try reinstalling.

Auto-buy for me.
Still waiting for Imbroglio on PC though!

Great talk by Michael Brough on Going with the Grain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYXInr3N5UQ in game production.

Yes it’s legit. He’s been teasing it on twitter a bit.

Loving the mechanic and it’s so much better than the implementation I designed for another game.
