Fun gameplay! It takes a second to realize just how powerful the tomes make you!

This was fun! I had to compile the linux version myself, but it worked when i did that. (It was complaining about SDL_Image)

I REALLY dig the oil/fire combo and the strategy that you have to use on some of the fights. The controls could be a bit more friendly for switching between abilities, but this is still pretty fun. Keep working on this!

There aren't enough games that show case how truly powerful wizards are, but this one does. From the very beginning you are using a massive fire spell to take down waves of enemies, and you only get stronger from that. Nice job!

It's a fun little game! I got creamed by that giant goomba thing though.

I liked this game. Quite difficult but a nice basic idea. Putting the oil on fire was fun.

I'm always on the lookout for native client games. Add it to the chrome web store - it's easy to do, much easier than porting to NaCl in the first place - and let me know when it's up and I'll list it on my list o' native client games: http://www.gamedevblog.com/2011/10/native-client-opengl-games.html

i like it, the main menu though at the beginning could use a "press enter to select, left/right to rotate or something though, i kept clicking on start with my mouse, trying space bar, etc. Also, needs to be a quicker way to swap tomes.

Enjoyed, but it was a touch annoying having to select the tomes then use them individually.

I can't play the game I only see the menu elements and the energy bar while I'm in play. If I check the instructions I on ly have a white screen. The comments on your game looks attractive, I wish I could play and rate it :(
