I actually played all the way through. :)
I liked it - it has a lot of potential, but it needs a lot of work.
* speed up the battles
* use same movement controls outside as in town, and make moving faster
* make spells more powerful
* texture the ground/walls
* make it playable without the mouse
* add a map
* add flee command
* add save/load
* status text doesn't display properly
* needs dungeons :)
I spent more time with this game than any other game I've found on the portal, so you're on the right track. You could make this into a very cool game!
