Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 192 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Oliver & the Basilisks

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The sorcerer's apprentice, Oliver, was experimenting with his master's spell book while he was away. Oliver wanted to try to summon a basilisk, but got a few words wrong and ended up summoning EVERY basilisk. In the entire world. Now Oliver has to try to clear out the tower as best he can before his master gets back!

The mechanics of this game are based on the early computer game "Robots," but significantly expanded and enhanced by the addition of 3, 6 or 12 (depending on game mode) spells to choose from. What will you do when the basilisks have you cornered? Teleport to safety? Take them on with Distintegrate? Gamble with an Earthquake spell? The more efficiently you clear each level, the better the rewards you'll get for the next level... and you'll need them, because each level has more and more basilisks to be disposed of! Magic Spirits and Golems complicate matters even further.

This is a retro, arcade-style game; there is no ending, or "win" condition. The objective is to progress as far as you can, and strive for higher and higher scores. There is both a local (personal) high score table, and the option to submit your score to Mochi Scores to compete globally!
