Indie video games are clearly some of the most interesting games to check out. After all, the future of game development and some of the biggest artists, developers, or even composers, are most likely in some indie game right now, so it's great to keep an eye on them. Even though some indie games come in very small packages with not much content, which is the case of the one we are going to talk about here. Mage and Monsters is a game developed by Lasse Zacho Malver, a solo indie game developer. This is a small project, but what is it all about? Is it any good? Well, let's talk about it!
About the game
In Mage and Monsters, you are in charge of commanding your own army, and you are going to need to provide their equipment and improve their abilities. There are many classes and character types you can choose to grow your army with, of course. You are the mage, and not only are you in charge of organizing and commanding your very own army to defeat horde after horde of evil monsters, but you'll also be joining the battle yourself.
Use your powerful spells and magic to attack the enemy's army and completely mess them up. your spells usually are much stronger than the attack power of your troop,s, but you have a limit on how often and how much you can use them. Use them carefully, and remember that they are not only for attacking but they can also be used to give your army ability buffs and boost them up.
As you progress through the 30 normal levels you'll earn upgrades and new classes to add to your army, but you'll also be losing a lot of troops, so remember that strategy is really important. After the 30 levels, there are 9 extra levels of endgame difficulty in which your army is going to be tested to the limit to see if it can actually survive.
Out of controls
Mage and Monsters is a game in which the battles tend to get out of control, quite literally. Why? Because it is technically out of control, as the entire game is what you call an auto-battler. It's a genre of games in which you set up everything for the battle, and after that you just let the battle happen. They automatically fight, kinda like Dota Auto Chess or Dota Underlords.
Of course, it can get a little tricky to create a strategy this way, so it is important to make sure your army is pretty strong and well-equipped. It's a pretty interesting game concept, but it can be really tricky to play.
Mage and Monster is an interesting game, but when it comes to content, the game is lacking a lot. There isn't much to do there, and the entire game feels a little on barebones, There aren't many things that can be said for this game, but the fact that it is a fun game to watch is worth something.
The battles are always interesting, as they are unpredictable, and can go either way depending on who wins it. The music in the game is also very good.
- Fun to watch the battles
- Interesting combat system
- Minimal content
- Tricky gameplay
