You play as Nour, a witch in training who lost her spell book while exploring a dungeon. You'll have to dodge, shoot, cast, and upgrade your way through the dungeon's randomized floors to get it back, but don't take it easy... the dungeon's inhabitants will become more alert as you make your way downwards, causing them to attack more fiercely; clear floors quickly to keep your alert level in check!
Witchinour - out June 12th on Steam and itch.io!
Witchinour isn't worth the hassle. While it does have a firm grasp of the basic essentials, it's difficult in all of the wrong ways. The stages are boring, the bosses are insufferable, and the spells are woefully inadequate. Even in games where the learning curve is akin to a steep cliff wall, there's at least something the player can do to make it palatable. That simply isn't the case here. Fans of shooters beware; nothing but misery awaits.
