Cool game, I really adore the 8-bit art, kind of throws me back to the GameBoy.

I like the game, though I'm bad with 2D games in general so it was hard for me to play on easy mode hehe. There was also slight input-lag that made it slightly harder to play than necessary.

my favorite out of the 8x8 1st game jam but the giant fireball spell makes boss rush easy even on hard difficulity

Very fun game! The sprites are cute and the game is challenging.

Mac?

Is this ever gunna be compatible with Chromebook? can somebody do this please?

Great game! but I have a suggestion if you want to do 1. Is to add player input because I found some difficulty because I am using a french keyboard and the french keyboard is not WASD is ZQSD. But I liked s much the game! Great game and a great idea! keep going and never give up.

Really like this game, great for playing during queue time from other games, BUT the boss mode is way too easy once youve got the lightning spell, maybe balance that

I downloaded it but I cant figure out how to play it. It look sooooo fun!

On windowss, go to your downloads folder and find Sorcerer Shootout.zip. Open the file, click on Sorcerer Shootout.exe, extract all and you should be good to go :)

No, if you're using a laptop with a trackpad though, a lot of them disable the trackpad while typing

Is there a way to see code of this game cause I'm trying to learn how to make some game and I want to use code that allows other objects to follow each other and I cant find anything about it.

Awesome game, quite a lot of content!
But just like EpicMinecraftGamer, my game crashed aswell. during boss rush against the slime boss on easy. It gave th error:

  Unable to find any instance for object index '33' name 'oEnemy'

Hmm, this is a new error, lol. I'll look into it and see if I can patch it :)

(+1)

Really good game but when i die the game crashes...idk why, just me or a game bug?

hmm, not sure. I haven’t got that complaint before

Cwel! I watched the video you made on this, I currently can't download it as I'm on a crappy laptop, but from the video I think I'd love the game!
