Review of 'Wizard's Castle'

Rating:2 User: YOR

This is actually a well written game in its own right, certainly for a type-in game, the problem is it feels endless. You constantly find yourself running into to dead ends and running around in circles, plus when you kill an enemy and then fine yourself in a dead end the very next room, it respawns again when you return to the previous room. In order to make some steady progress I found myself having to rest constantly, pretty much in every single room I entered. Therefore I must be the world's laziest warrior because I can’t go to more than two rooms without needing to take a 2-5 hour nap in between. And I spent a full hour on this game on three attempts and didn’t once see a wizard, I feel completely cheated. It's much more advanced compared to most other type-in and yet in the end I think that ends up being the main problem for this game as it over-complicates itself and just become a chore rather quickly as a result.
