Under rating threshold (show) I am ranked nr 3 and Taven Master tells me rank nr 2 i Ice Water Clan Leader. But I just beat him to become the Clan Leader myself, so not I can't challenge him!

Under rating threshold (show) resting against sea water is pretty funny after burn they try to attack and then you got them, game is stupidly unbalanced

Under rating threshold (show) The red fire mage's special ability is annoying. It's called drain, so one assumes that it takes mana from your opponent and gives it to you. Fair enough. But it gives them mana even if you don't have that mana! It's annoying when it uses drain on you when you both have 0 mana. It just gains 20! arrgh.

Under rating threshold (show) theadmiral; I managed to beat him (I played as poison water), you just have to sort of sucker him into using the freeze spell early, so that he tries to attack you with the softer attack, and then kill him before he can cast it again. My problem with the game is the very last fight, where, if you lose, once, you get the game-over screen.. That, and the repetitiveness of the game, itself..

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with admiral, I don't see a way to beat the Ice Water Magic Master as a Poison Water Mage. Did anyone succeed in doing so?

Under rating threshold (show) I'm having the same problem. It seems that you actually cannot beat the Ice Water Magic Master as a Poison Water Mage. Your highest low attack he can defend against, and he can repeatedly use high attack (Aren't you not supposed to be able to use the same attack in a row?) which always gets you down by 10 HP whether you defend or counter attack. After you're down to 50 HP (5 turns) he freezes you and is free to rain 60 points of damage, and you lose at -10 HP every time. Unless you use some other suicidal strategy, then you might wind up somewhere other than -10, but I don't know how.

Under rating threshold (show) I like the concept. Only problem is that some fights are impossible due to strength/weakness imbalances. For example: No red fire mage could ever beat an ice water mage provided the ice water mage had high enough mana (aka, clan leader). The only way to cause the ice water mage any damage (that I found) is by resting, causing the ice mage to attack with a high and low attack, you get hit by the high, and counter low with low attack causing the ice mage 10 damage. All other attacks are met with a nullifying counter, and you can't drain his mana before he Freeze lvl 2's you twice and kills you. In short: game needs balancing so that proper planning and skill can get you perfect endings with all 6 clans.

Under rating threshold (show) easy and short, but i love the way it looks. all of the clans are cool looking but i would have like to see more variation. i was iwth ice water and basically just used manu burn and high attack, than later on i used those plus freeze two and low attack. didnt defend once

Under rating threshold (show) Played Poison water clan, and get to number 11. Can't beat this opponent. Just impossible to advance any further. Maybe if there was a way to increase your life as you level up, and not just your mana...

Under rating threshold (show) Yeah, this game sucks! Maybe if you didn't know what your opponent was doing 24/7 then maybe it wouldn't take five hours to kill someone! Its attack, they defend, they attack, I defend! It gets old after the first two bouts!

Under rating threshold (show) Bug report: When your clan elections crops up and you have not defeated your clan leader (or at least, arriving at your clan in hoping to defeat him only to have the elections occur), you become stuck on your rank.

Under rating threshold (show) Had fun, but then the game froze up in a really advanced game and I lost all my progress... in definite need of a save feature... tutorial is a bit slow... nice that it can be skipped though... A 3 stars game with the sould of 4, even the story and multiple choice was compelling... if there is a refined sequel I'd be interested...

Under rating threshold (show) Nice concept, although the battles get repetitive after a while and mana training is painfully tedious. I like the choice of whether or not to side with the assassins. I think with some refinement this could be 5*...

Under rating threshold (show) It was okay. The text was really hard to get past. The "training" area of the game could have either been simplified to choosing points or changed in some way to make it more interesting (maybe a top down screen where you at least walk there, although that could get tedious). I'm pretty sure there is no way to defeat the Sea Water clan leader if you are a part of that clan to start. That clan feels a bit too over powered, but I didn't bother playing any of the other clans, so I don't know how the balance is. Had some good images and okay animation. Feels some what incomplete though.
