Three young wizards are forced to work together if they wish to gain the wisdom of Handalf. Little did they know what the old wizard had up his sleeve!

In my free time, I spent about a month and a half with Stencyl to make this game. It's my first published project. All gameplay, visuals and sound were created by me.

The controls are posted in game. In a future release I may give the option to switch controls.

Have fun!

This is a pretty good platforming game.
I did find a bug though, If you pause right after a restart the screen will pop up but the game won't pause.
Although if you press pause again the game will pause normally and the double will disappear if you unpause.
Nothing bad just though it was odd.

Ah, interesting. Never noticed that before! Thanks.

Alright. This is a pretty cool game. I like the concept!
I especially like the art/animations (and as we all know, the scissors rock! [get it?]) The other two characters are cool too.
The music is okay too :)
Also, the story, short as it is, is funny :'D

Although I liked the game, I have a few things to point out!

- The character animation doesn't switch (mirror flip) in the air when you switch direction, after a certain point has been reached

- If you change wizard a millisecond after a death, the character (that is dead) is reborn as one of the other characters, although the level restarts as normally (and if you're really fast, you can get back the wizard that died for a millisecond, by switching twice).

- You should warn people that your save restarts when you hit the home button; at least that happened to me :/

-Also, some of the level design could use improvement. Nothing too big, but for example, it's hard to predict what will be below you in some of the drops because the camera doesn't reach that far, which can be annoying late in a level :p
Some of the jumps could be shorter and some longer too.

All that aside, I really liked your entry. Very good job, as your first published project too!

I personally always got confused about which arrow key is which character, even if that's written on the screen at all times! Do I feel dumb haha :D

Wow, thanks for the review, very in-depth.

As for the stuff you pointed out...
Yeah I was having trouble with the dead wizard glitch for a while. I decided that since I got the level to restart, it didn't break the game, and as a cosmetic issue I put it on low priority for the bug fixes. I would have liked to fix it if I had time- same with the jump direction switch.

Sorry about the game restarting! I should have known people might want to come back to it after going to home screen- that was an oversight of mine.

The level design was also difficult- trying to introduce some mechanics while making it challenging. There is some polishing needed there, but a lot of the levels are pretty short so I was hoping I wouldn't annoy people with some surprises ;-).

I definitely take your comments to heart, thanks again.

Great concept and animations! Reminds me a bit of the indie game Outland. Really fun and challenging. The difficulty ramped up a bit too quickly for my tastes though and I probably would have stuck through to the end if there was an easier difficulty with more checkpoints/ slower fall speed.
Also thanks for checking out my game!

Wowlex responds:

Yeah, I think you're right about the fall speed. It feels right to me, but since many of the challenges involve falling thru platforms and tight timing, it might be better it it was a bit floaty. Thanks for the review :)
