Use your fire-ball-shooting staff to defeat all waves of enemies in this retro arcade game!

Use the arrow keys to move, the mouse to aim and space/left mouse button to shoot. Use '+' and '-' to turn the volume up and down and '0' to mute. You can return to the menu by pressing 'v'.

4 + 4 = 8

This game has the potential (as do all other games that are actually fun, at least at first) but you know what would be better? if you made it faced - paced. I'm giving it 4 for potential and 4 because I like these kinds of games.

Thank you for your review and your suggestion. :)


to repetitive, boring, not to mention graphics

Is ok...

Is a reasonably fun game that does have variation between waves... except that I found that standing in the top corner, holding down space and waggling the mouse periodically tore through the first few waves like paper. Course then came dodging...which just meant in addition to holding space I had to tap left and right every so often.
I mean, its a nice style, but the graphics match the gameplay - simple.
Maybe add a staff cooldown to prevent continuous fire? Or powerups or area effect spells or something? Some kind of reward for beating waves?


It get's boring really quickly, and the mechainics and hit detection need some works. The lack of automatic fire is a problem too; I can already tell this game will give people carpal tunnel. A break between waves would also be nice.


at first i tought i was throwing meat ball at hungry italians
