- Rebalanced the game, making spells and upgrades more easily attainable.

4 Simple Steps
- Click and hold on the villagers to pick them up. Drag and release to throw them.
- Loot coins from the defeated villagers and use them to purchase spells and upgrades.
- Don't let villagers escape from the sides; you could lose the level!
- Some villagers are more difficult to defeat; be clever... outsmart them!

Full Instructions
If you have a very fast system, set detail to "highest" in the options for maximum graphical fidelity.


Left Mouse Button: Interact with villagers and objects.
Space Bar (Hold): Initiate Gesture Casting for spells.
Number Keys (1-8): Hotkeys for the corresponding spell slots on your spell toolbar.
Cursor Keys Up and Down (or "W" and "S"): Move the object you are holding back and forth in depth (Optional).
"P" key, Escape, or Pause/Break: Pause the game. Also allows access to the options screen.


Prevent the villagers from escaping from the sides of the screen! Slain villagers will drop coins for you to collect; dispatching them more brutally will result in more coins. Use coins to purchase upgrades and spells between rounds to aid in your Plundering of riches.

Great game! I accidentally deleted my saved game somehow, so i had to start all over :( Got to round like 25 :P

A great game, get to smash villagers and when theres so many your constantly looking around and moving. Although, you could've made those flying guys easier to kill, i have a hard time killing them by throwing them at the ground! :P Reminds me of Black and White so much.

All the evil fun of black and white made cartoony

I really like killing and tormenting innocents in games like this,
Its a decent game, if a little choppy at times (although that might be my crappy pc)
I'd have liked to have seen a little blood maybe and some interaction with the background items. Burning them in fires, dropping sheep on them, killing sheep for bonus points - just a little more effort would have made this excellent instead of just pretty good
