|Undead Stones by PistillPhil|
The 3rd feature for the One Game A Month Challenge is Undead Stones by PistillPhil.
Undead Stones is a simple one player game where the player controls a wizard's apprentice who wakes up to find that the place has been over run by skeletons. The only problem is she only knows one spell and all it does (after several tries) is freeze the fiends in their tracks!
The controls are easy: W, A, S, D to move the character and the arrow keys to fire the spell in a given direction. The challenge is to freeze the skeletons before they run into you. Get hit too many times, and the game is over.
While the game itself is enjoyable to play, there are a few things that can be done to improve upon it. On my monitor, the game is too big, rendering the score impossible to see. Also, the ending could be more concrete. Currently "game over" is signified by the room being over run with the undead, yet you can still move around and fire your spells. Even with these minor problems though, the game is quite re-playable.
Keep up the good work everyone!
