Fun idea! This is tough for me, because I'm not really sure about the elemental stuff (perhaps I need to play more Final Fantasy). Great concept, though.

Nice voice overs. I found the game a bit difficult but a nice twist on the theme. Well done.

It's a fun game, but kinda counter intuitive. I think you made it necessary to match the heroes elements to simplify the game, but it might be easier to call them 'weakpoints' or 'weaknesses'. Other than that, it's great. It would be cool to have a "top score" displayed somewhere after the first time you play.

However, I didn't see a lot of the theme in there... Maybe because you're in one dungeon's room the whole time?

Simple little game, some simple graphics or icons would have made it easier to play.

This was really fun! The tutorial was excellent, which I very much appreciated. The gameplay was also great, though I did quit out of Beginner because 100 turns is a long time. In general, trying to hit the goals while also preparing for future heroes was quite the intense and fun experience. I can only think of two minor suggestions:
1. It would be nice to have elemental symbols instead of words because I think they're easier to parse.
2. Sometimes I would be sad because my available items would "clump up" in terms of which elements they used. It might be nice to have an RNG that tries to diversify items/heroes a little, if that doesn't already exist.

Great job! And the "click"/"excellent"/"perfect" sound effects were really funny too.

As someone who is used to RPGs and their implementation of elemental alignments, I still came out as having a "sub-par" performance.

Great tutorial and the game is a good thinking challenge.

Cool concept! I found the game quite hard, probably because i'm not in the mood to think a lot right now :p. also, some visual feedback on the elements would be nice!
Great game for improving your calculating agility! Good Job!
