I beta tested this one.. and I'm enjoying this game. It supports multi-touch control, so I can draw with 2 fingers easily. A bit hard at the first time to figure out every symbol, but it's quite fun once you've mastered the control. The boss fighting is so much fun too

Hey thanks for posting this, we're really glad that you liked the game.
Boss Fights changed a lot since the Beta Tests but it's ( we think ) way more epic now

Don't forget to rate the game if you like to!!

It'll be around the world soon so,

The atmosphere and the cool little creatures are cool, graphics are the first thing you see and sets the mood great, plus gameplay is fast, and there is a lot to do: while you posses enemies drawing symbols you have to collect coins, spawn power ups, cast spells, ... and its endless. Its my kind of thing: frantic, but in a new way.

Overall so far I think is unique and fun. I like it.

It has a shop with lots of stuff, highest price is 2500. There seems to be no IAP, cant find it. From more than a couple of rounds I collected 1000 things.

EDIT: When enemies overlap is kind of hard to distinguish them (even whith the hit wave you generate after each kill) and do the right command. They are too close together to see them clearly. This seems to be better for the larger screen.
