Fun puzzler with somewhat frustrating controls

Love this game style as it reminds of Adventures of Lolo on NES. But to be clear it is similar and not a copy. The addition of new spells as you progress keeps your interest piqued though I was bummed the game picks your spells for each level. I understand why as it would be a nightmare to balance each level if every spell where available. All and all a very fun and at times challenging game to play. Unfortunately sometimes the challenge is nativigating tricky sequences with very clunky controls. Unless you have usually tiny hands the buttons are very small on a 7 plus.

What a great little game

I loved almost everything about this game. The story was nice and graphics were cute. They worked well together. The gameplay was very creative, and it was actually quite challenging for how simple it looks. You really have to think about how to use your spells effectively. I also really liked how the main map had the same functionality as the levels. It kind of keeps you in the story. As with everyone else who’s reviewed, I struggled with the controls and movement somewhat. Still we’ll worth 5 stars in my opinion.

This is a very challenging but cute little puzzle game! The only qualms I have with this game is that the controls can be very weird at times. Like when walking through sideways you have to be at the very bottom of the square instead of the middle like any other game would which makes the movement pretty awkward. But other than that, awesome game!
