The Thursday Find - Drop Wizard Tower

Oh, hi there Thursday. There you are in all your splendour, showing off your moves, swaggering around like the boss of time. You've done well, we're all super proud of you. Can't wait to see what you bust out next week.

I reckon Thursday is so exciting because it's when we throw down our Thursday Find. And this week it's a pretty good one. Well, I mean it's always a pretty good one, because that's sort of the point, after all.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you think there's another game that deserves recognition, please feel free to chuck it in the comments right down there at the bottom of the article.

Drop Wizard Tower

The sequel to the pretty damn good Drop Wizard. This time it's free, it's published by Nitrome, and it's really pretty darn special.

You boop up and down a room, firing out magic spells to destroy critters that are scurrying around and trying to kill you. Grab fruit and other pick-ups, earn points, and try and get as far as you can before you die.

And you will die. That's sort of the point. But there's also a roguelike element here. There are 50 levels, and as you progress your character will level up. You can upgrade your moves, and get stronger and stronger.

This being a Nitrome game, there are adverts here and there, but you can pay some money to get rid of them. And you should, because this game deserves as much money as you can give it.

It's slick, it's smart, and it's tough. It's a little meatier than most of Nitrome's fare, and it's all the better for it.

Basically, if you want a sharp-edged arcade game that is going to suck you in in the very best way. And, well, who doesn't want to get sucked up in the very best way?
