Has anyone tried this yet? Thinking of picking it up as it looks like it could be one of those hidden indie gems. (Well maybe)

Just scratched the surface but so far I like this game.This has a lot of charm and satire.Dungeon crawl type experience with many twists and turns, several hidden rooms to find. You progress pretty quickly, power ups and spell books to be found.

Controls well, left hand side of the screen, 2 arrows for movement (front & back). Right hand side 3 buttons jump,attack,duck/crouch.

So far Ive unlocked breath under the water, mega jump and throwing fireballs.
If you like these types of games it's a winner for 99 cent.

Not exactly sure the length of the game but there's a lot of exploration to be done.Recommend

Thanks for the impressions dude.

The video gives off a "floaty" impression...would I be wrong in assuming the jumping's a bit floaty?

Oh, and someone posted a thread for "Ascent of Kings" earlier today. Check it out if you're interested in Metroidvanias. Great stuff.

A bit but its tolerable. Not "floaty" enough to be a deterrent/game breaker.Also through out the game you get new jumping ability which makes all the difference.

Biggie: Thanks for the impressions, dude. Definitely seems like something I'd dig. I'll be able download it in a couple of hours.

MC: I missed your post in the "Ascent of Kings" thread earlier. Looks good!

Bought.

Yeah, Ascent's pretty awesome Andy. The graphics are really simple, but there's something captivating about the game.

More than anything else, I'm surprised that the title "Mage" wasn't already a name taken on the App Store.
