A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Alpha version of the game Aldarix the Battlemage. Aldarix the Battlemage is a puzzle roguelike in which you must defeat hordes of enemies using powerful spells. The game focuses on positioning and clever use of mana. Spells are balanced so that the right spell must be chosen for each situation. Correctly used they can have devastating effect!

The game is primarily targeted towards mobile, but can be played on desktop as well.

This test version includes the first 16 levels of the campaign,  and 12 levels survival mode.

Please, if you try the game, let me know what you think! How is the difficulty? Do you find that the game advances too slowly or too quickly? Any spells that are particularly fun or boring? Enemies? And the main question: Does the main character sprite look like a badass battlemage with flowing white hair (think Elric of Melniboné), or (as some claim) like an old lady?
