Pulled into an unknown world, a young Wizard must master magical spells, fight dangerous enemies, gain powerful abilities, and search a mystical land in order to find his way home.

Arzea was originally created for a Ludum Dare 22 (a 48 hour game programming competition). The game was then extended to include more content and better music.

Control the wizard with the arrow keys or ASDW, and using your mouse to aim and shoot your spells. [Tab] or [Escape] will open the menu, [M] will open the map, and [Shift] will open the spell change wheel.

First off, this game is spectacular. The gameplay's great, the music surprisingly doesn't get repetitive, and it is overall a very well-constructed experience. I only have a few minor complaints. I think many reviews have touched on the balance issues with the leveling, so I won't get into that. My only other complaint worth mentioning is that some of the items are hidden in ridiculously obtuse ways. Also, I think the invisible wall gimmick was a bit overused with the hidden items. However, overall it's an excellent game and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

This greatly reminds me of the good ol' Apogee Games (specifically of a game called HocusPocus or similar). And that,by all means, is a damn compliment.

There are only two things I could criticise - the music (which was..mediocre at best and highly annoying in the long run) and a slight imbalance in the later levels. After reaching lvl 60, I was practically just running around, spamming the shotgu-, err, Water-Spell and pretty much onehitting everything. Naturally it is supposed to become easier to defeat the monsters, but if you can kill even these super-turret things, I becomes relatively boring after a while.

Other than that - superb game, definitely looking forward to other projects of yours.

Imho game is superb, it's addictive and you don't know when your time run's out ( literally ).

Graphics - great, I really enjoy playing pixel-kinded stuff (^.^).
Music - is... hmmm ... thematic I think it's good for this game.
Map'n'stuff - Map is good. I've didn't occure any of problem with map i think it's well prepared. I like the thing about spells that you need different kind's of them to unlock pathways to speed,jump,health and mystical orbs. By the way those orbs work here like upgrades so if you wan't to be more "jumpy" you need to find jump orb. The main thing is that you think you could jump to the place higher above where the health orb is but noo you need more jump orbs : >.
Level's - Basically as in any other game. Fighting monster's , message pop up that you have new level.
Main Story - Hmm... there is something about wizard going to find his home but seriously i didn't even look up to this. When the exploring starts and finding orbs etc. I was much more engaged to that. Let's say that the story exist's nothing else : P.
And that's all. In the end i want only to say that it's really good game worth playing. Oh ofc it has his faults too. And it will be medals. I went all the game and unlocked only 3 medals ( wtf -_- ). Ehh i hope for the NG to have all games perfect in unlocking medals. Cya and enjoy (^.^)
