There was a "wall" of mage phenomen when too much mage with low hp stack together. They can instant focus first mage they meet and loose life very slowly
I played 2x games and most of the time the winning lane was the lane with the "wall" and I had now clue on how to create this.

The player doesn't really get enough strategic input. It wasn't always clear what effect my choices were having on the game.

It feels like pure snowball wars. One side gets ahead, they win. End of story.
Part of the issue is that it seems that there isn't any counter-circle setup. (By which I mean, fire is weak to ice, ice is weak to earth, etc.)
However, an expansion on this concept could yield great results.

Awesome! :D

Even if there are no weaknessess, it's still fun to strategically make upgrades and keep an eye on both sides of the battlefield.

Once I got into a more than 15 (or 20) minutes long battle, almost losing or winning several times to finally win!

Loved the "stray bullet" effect when the original target is already dead. hehe :)

This is really fun to watch, although I'm unclear on the strategy involved. Is there an RPS thing, like Fire beats Earth, Earth beats Ice, Ice beats Fire, that kind of thing? If so, it's pretty unclear. What does upgrading your towers do, does it just produce mages at a faster rate? And how do you win? My mages got all the way past the area marked off with flags, and nothing seemed to happen...(And when you get that close to the enemy towers, it's VERY hard to make any progress since the enemy mages keep popping into existence and killing you.) Still, though, it has great animation and music, so it just needs a little work. ;)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
