JeremyTiny WizardSo you're a wizard who lives on an itty-bitty little planet and you like to build massive towers in your spare time, you say? Well, we all need our hobbies. In Tiny Wizard, an inventive little arcade shooter by Hannes Rahm for the recent Ludum Dare 23 competition, your lovely castle has been invaded by all manner of ghosts and ghouls and if you want to see peace again, you'll need to conjure up all your best magical powers (and your snazziest wizard hats) to beat them back.

Move using the [WASD] keys and attack using the [left] mouse button. Press [spacebar] to cast a special magic attack and [F] to lob bombs. Finally, use [tab] or [1],[2],[3] to switch between different wizard hats, which each hold unique abilities. Though the game advertises itself as "tiny," really it's huge. There's no level cap and all floors are randomly generated, making it infinitely long in theory, though many will find it quite challenging by level 10. There's also no save function or pause in Tiny Wizard, which will make it hard to play for more than a few minutes at a time, but considering that it was made in under 48 hours, it's quite an achievement, and some great silly, shoot-y fun.

There is a pause function, although it's not as user freindly as it could be - just click away from the game and it will pause itself.

Also are there any wizard hats besides red and blue? I am quite a few levels above the second evil wizard and I still have only those two.

Hey!

There are currently 3 hats in the game.

I probably should add a pause button. I'll see if I can get there tonight :)

Why is the hat speaking in the beginning and not the wizard? Is it supposed to be funny or the author didn't even bother to start his game before releasing?

Ummm... is there an end to it? I'm on level 101. Do I ever win?

BTW... Click outside the flash window to pause.

The TAB key just pauses the game for me. Is there another way to switch between hats?

@Jeremy Hobbs

Same here, the game is basically unplayable for me because I can't switch between the hats. Tab only pauses, which is really weird. Hope this gets fixed soon.

Hey guys!

You can also switch hats with [1][2][3].

Floor 101?! Jikes :) That is awesome. Need to add more enemies i think.

I was using IE, but I played it in Firefox and TAB worked fine. Just another reason to hate IE...

Hmm. The game froze for me after I defeated the first wizard D: (I was playing on Safari.)
