This is going to be fun. Hopefully I can at least get to Stage 1 with all perfects, lol. Also, maybe you should put a suggestion that if people upload screenshots that they watermark them with there username. Otherwise, other people could just re-post there screenshot and say it's theirs.

You know what, when i first saw this contest, I thought like: "Pffff easiest contest ever, I gonna make a lot of perfect stages"
But when I took my iphone and started to do this, I was surprised by how tricky this game can be.
I just was trying to master very first stage over and over again, but that was super difficult for me to reach the 'Perfect stage' even at this, easiest stage in the game. But i was not planning to give up so soon. I played for hours(actually, about 3 or 4 hours) on my iphone.
My plan was: just play trough game over and over again to master my skills, then it would be easier for me to make 'Perfect Stages'
And i reached very last stage of the game(unfortunatly, didn't beat it ) And then i realised that I'm ready to make that stages on perfect! ( 1st photo on collage)
I was never been so wrong in my whole life)) Even with the fact, that I have played the game for about a day by that moment, the best result i achieved was 'Perfect Stage' on Stage 0. Which is not so hard, in my opinion. (2-nd picture from collage)
On the next day, I thought that I must change my strategy And i decided to try the game on my iPad, hopefully game is universall, so that was not a big problem for me.
After few hours of gameplay on my ipad - I became a true Wizard ) Actually, I have just mastered two stages in a raw - that was absolutely crazy for me, because I have been playing for hours and that was really hard to make it. (3-rd and 4-th pictures from collage)

So, for now, I did 2 'Perfect Stages' in a raw, which was super hard for me
I will think about making my results even better sometime in a future, but for I now, i just need some rest)
By the way, thank you very much for such opportunity to participate in contest of the best Wizards of toucharcade (5-th picture from collage)

Best wishes and good luck for everyone!

My screenshots!

My screenshots!
WOWOW..beebar ,thats is sooo Awesome !
Really love your write up and sharing your Journey to become the Greatest Wizard..haha

FISHTASTIC !!!

Thanks for sharing,
and Thanks so much for trying so hard and playing again and again !
We love it !!

I think on iPad it's a better play personally !
Feel easier and more relaxed then iphone !
But yeah,you did really well I must say ! Screens looks Super Sweet !

Please do not forget you can TAP coins to collect !

I have a couple of questions:
What wand did you use ? Did you try Quick Detonator or Swipe wand ?
and if so,how did you feel about them ?
I saw you have around 1684 StarCoins on 1 screen,how did you spend them ?

About Difficulty:
You wrote a couple of times it was hard,could you tell me what the main difficulty in Wizards is for you ?
Getting the sweetspot right for PERFECT tap ?
Is it clear enough when to Tap & Swipe them ?
Is the moment too short to hit them on PERFECT ?

Do you feel we could make the game on "EASY" easier ?

I personally played the game too often and it is hard to find it difficulty on any setting anymore,sadly !!!
I feel,as soon as you are using the SWIPE,or the SWIPE & TAP Wand it gets pretty easy to get them all !

I would like to reevaluate the difficulty settings,
and adjust them, make it more easy,or enjoyable if its to hard for u guys !

We can keep Normal and Hard for harder challenges.harhar

Would love to hear some more feedback ! Any suggestions ?

Thanks Beebar for taking on the Challenge,you are right up there with the greatest Heroes of Wizards ! Locomalito,Javie Jr,Toto,Mr.B and even Master Walch are very pleased and proud of u!

Hugs

Hey!
I just replied about difficulty in game's main thread.

Whats about different game stuff, i just used during challenge, I did tried to use "Quick Detonator", that was cool, but then I realized, that I'm already got used to hanging stars Quick detonator is good enough for tricky situations, when its half a hundreds of stars at the screen, and you really need to clear the screen fast. But, as far, as i liked the firs wand more, I switched back to that soon .
Actually, I haven't tried swipe wand, because that were easy for me to tap high amount of fireworks at the screen(that circles and lines I loved them!) i'm planning to try all the wands in a future, because a do have a lot of star coins for that
I'm planning not to spend that 1700 star coins for now, just thinking to collect them for the final wand "tap and Swipe"

Yeah I saw your feedback on the main thread !
Awesome,and Thanks a lot for that ! We are already testing here a couple of ways to improve it even more !!

And I totally know how you feel,I find my self always getting back to Tap & Wait wand too !! Just on later stages it gets to Crazy !!

1700 is not bad,you can double that with the Starcoins wand faster ! But no wait time

Looking forward to hear any news after u tried them all !
Have a great day

stage 0 - Maple Branch

Youtube link | Pop Up


stages 0/1 - The Argus


Thanks for a challenging contest! Here are my thoughts.

The gameplay is quite fun and exciting. One thing for sure is that easy mode is not easy to get perfect stage.

Some confusion

I tried hard mode once and stage 0 did not feel much different than easy mode. To cater to casual gamers and therefore increasing your potential audience, you should perhaps make easy mode easier by making it easier to tell when you will get a perfect hit.

I have only unlocked The Argus wand. It seems that I get one or two less hits per stage using The Argus compared to Maple Branch.

I have no idea if moving the wand from side to side with tilting does anything to the gameplay.

FYI: One time I returned to the home screen and all my progress (stars/achievements) was lost. Thank goodness that has not happened since.

THATS FISHTASTIC !!!!!!
Awesome Video and Concert Performance there M13 !!
We love it ! Thanks so much !

It's really sweet to see you playing.
Which screen recorder did you use to catch that ?
I guess some other users would like to try as well !

About your suggestions:

Easy still too Hard

We heard you,
and we Appreciate your suggestions and impressions,this is good constructive feedback ! Thank you !

Over the last view days we heard a couple of times that the gameplay is hard even on easy! And we listen !

We already Balanced the timer for hitting a PERFECT on easy,
and you have now a bigger time window to get it !

We also are testing a couple of graphical effects to give the player another "tell" of when to hit the Firework besides the white smoke screen that acts as a Fuse !

Look out for our new update !!!

Difference between Difficulties :

In the Current build the only differences are
- PERFECT and GOOD are giving less energy to your AUDIENCE BAR
- the energy loss you suffer by MISS and POOR is bigger !
- Audience Bar on top of the screen depletes faster

We are changing this right now and working on it:

- So the different Difficulties will have different FIREWORK LEVELS & FORMATIONS !! This means Faster Action and more Challenging Combos !
So each Difficult will be a completely new challenge !

The Argus wand

It should be the same HIT's as the Maple Wand. Any more clues ?
But we will look into it and play test it one more time!

"About Tilting"

To your Question of:
" if Moving the wand from side to side with tilting does anything to the gameplay."

The answer is NO !

The only thing TILTING your device does is:

1.)it MOVES the BROOM,so you can collect StarCoins and nothing else!

2.)For eye Candy,it moves the background Parallax Layers for a fake Graphical 3D effect.

Moving your finger across the screen with having the SWIPE WAND will change gameplay from TAP to SWIPE MODE !

With that some Formations are a lot easier to deal with ! Especially on Later stages you will need this to get COMBOS of 16 or Higher as Cut through them in one Stroke !

The last WAND in Wizards that you can get "Demons Bone" combines all WANDS into 1,The TAP & SWIPE Wand!
One Wand to Rule them all..so to say !

Sorry to hear about your lost Progress the one time.
Can you specify what you did before that happened ? It might be a rare bug we haven't discover ! We never had this problem before with all testers !
We will look into it !

As for now ,we are working to implement iCloud functionality as well,
so you can save your progress between devices !
So nothing like it can happen again !

We are also looking into some other ways to save progress !
We keep you updated !

Again,Thanks a lot for all your constructive feedback M13 !
We are working on it,and you should have a new better build in your hands !

Cheers

PS: You Missed a SECRET
