    Default Freeware Retro Video Game

    I just finished making a new flash game which has a retro look. The look was going for somewhere around NES styles. It's a 2 player game, and it's developing a little following with people posting strategies and combo ideas. The game is about 2 wizards who battle it out by summoning creatures and casting sorceries. Check it out at:

    Let me know what you think! Enjoy the game!

    I'm not exactly sure what's going on but the idea is pretty good (I'd see about doing something with the background). I don't like the control scheme but with a bit of work I could get used to it. Didn't have any second player so it was mostly me launching attacks at the hapless red guy, but I guess I see there's a defense ability in the fireball that requires three mana to launch.

    I'd actually say it's really promising looking - with some tweaks this could hold my attention much longer than a Snood ever would :)

    Music is pretty nice, and the graphics (outside of Flash backgrounds, heh) are a winner.

    I'd actually like to see a direct-to-TV version of this.
