This is an actual magic tower game with a lot less IWBTG influence than the maker's "Not Another Magic Tower Game".

The premise is very much the same, but this is a lot more comfortable to play in the fact that there is no combat sequences where you shoot at enemies and dodge their attacks. Combat takes place via the traditional magic tower way in an automated fashion calculating attack and defense values against each other. Platforming is also toned way down compared to NAMTG where pretty minimal platforming skills are required to navigate the tower generally. There's one corner jump and maybe 1 platform jump depending on your door openings, and that's about as tough as it gets on that front.

The bulk of the game revolves around classic resource management making decisions about spending keys, HP, and gold a bit later into the tower. There are some secrets and from I can tell some of them are mandatory in order to reach the end, but they are not too hard to spot if you pay close attention. Another nice quality of life is there is an item to quickly move between floors you have visited and it is given pretty close to the start.

The goal is to try to reach the end of the tower while also achieving the highest score possible. The game features an online leaderboard where you can submit your score, but I believe it only shows the top ten? If you are less concerned about scoring, there are skeleton key (earned only via level ups) doors at the start of the tower that can be opened if you are stuck that give piles of stuff, but significantly negatively impact your final score for each one you open. One of them in particular gives an overwhelming amount of stats that I felt trivializes the game a bit too much, but if you want to just see it through without worrying about score, the option is there.

I really enjoyed this game generally, and I hope we see more of this style of fangame. I found the emphasis taken off the combat somewhat refreshing as you never get bogged down grinding avoidances, and reseting when you get hit to sweat HP. The rewind system, while buggy, is a nice way to undo mistakes and experiment, and the backup save system is pretty nice as well. Overall a good package if you want to experience a proper magic tower / Tactical Nexus experience without the IWBTG sweating.

This is a traditional magic tower like game which is heavy puzzled. If you are new to this series, it's highly recommended you go though the readme first. Use F10 to submit your score during the game.

Even though I couldn't brain my way out of no skeleton keys completion, I still had a lot of fun solving this game, and I think skeleton doors is a nice accessibility option. I really wish there were more puzzle fangames based on original magic tower game. I like the vibe you get from adventures like these.
