The Mana Well - 7DRL 2014 - Finished

You're an elemental summoned by a wizard who wants you to get to the Mana Well for some yet unspecified reason. As you're made of pure magic, there will be only one resource to manage.

I'll be writing the game in C# using XNA (that's because I have a bit of experience with it so I can jump right in and start coding). I thought about using a console emulator I'm writing, but decided against it because it's pretty much unfinished.
As for the gameplay, I plan to use one resource for everything and it will be focused on magic, so casting spells, buying new ones and taking damage will deplete the same resource.

It's finished!

So, after two days I have almost all the basics done. There's level generation, enemies, fighting and spells. The only basic things left are stairways and some lighting system. After I implement these I can start working on the game's content.
Here's a screenshot:

During the past 2 days I've implemented proper spells (they were just simple projectiles earlier), a way to learn them (each runestone will be able to teach one random spell), aiming, stairways and lighting. All the above things are on the screenshots below. Now it's time to start adding some content to the game.

And it's finished!
I definitely see ways in which it could be improved, but sadly I don't have more time to work on it. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the result, given that I don't have much experience at making roguelikes.
If anyone would like to try it, here's the download link (you need XNA 4.0 redistributable though):
