Love it a lot, the mouse control didn't work for me but i think it better with arrows
I didn't like the Tab bottom i think E,Q or F are better

Thanks almozayaf!

Well, I've added the mouse control very early in the development of the game, but as it seems all the players use the keys (more reactive), I haven't maintained it. I plan to add joypad support too.

For the keys, you can remap them in the configuration menu.

There will be a new patch very soon, with improved dungeon (shadows, more details, more patterns), bug fixes and gameplay improvements.

Oh, it's just a coincidence!
As Witch Blast is a game with witches, bats and evil pumpkins, we've tried to have a new release just before Halloween.  :)
Afterbirth looks great too!  8)

Hi Cirrus Minor,

I just played the latest version (v0.7.5) and am really impressed!
It's when looking at your updates, how the game evolved over time!
It's already in a really solid state! I like the humor, graphics and gameplay (am also a big BoI fan)!
The speedup button is also quite cool, helps you skip boring parts like waling back-and-forth etc.
One thing quick I find a bit annoying, is when you collect an item, you get the "ho, ho, ho, ho, ho" sound.
It's quite funny, but I think about three times "ho" should be enough! ;)
Also while I like the art style, I find it sometimes a bit of a mix between pixel graphics and high res graphics,
I would decide for one way and doing it all the same way!
You could also update the screenshots in the first post of this thread, since the game looks now way more polished!
It's pretty nice of you, that the game is for free, but a really great and solid game like that, I would be more than okay paying for it,
still thought about getting it on Steam or anything like that? :)
