Miracle Witch


About

Long ago, it is told, a powerful wizard brought forth a collection of fantastic islands now known as the Miraclea Archipelago. To this day, the tradition-steeped Miraclea Academy For Wizardly Thought continues its study of these islands.

However, a troubling report has come in from one of the islands, Hidlyda, concerning a sudden increase in the number of monsters. It appears that the terrible king Yeah Walusa has infiltrated the island!

To investigate the island, and hopefully defeat the evil king, the Academy has chosen apprentice witch Polfe Hydla. Why, you ask, would they choose a practically powerless novice for such a dangerous mission? The ancient traditions of the Academy must be upheld, no matter the cost! Guide Polfe in her quest to gather the legendary Philosopher’s Pebbles of the isle of Hidlyda and end the evil king’s ambition once and for all!

Click the Start Button on the title screen to start the game. If you saved in the middle of a game, the Continue Button will appear. Click this to start from the map of your last save.


Controls

There are two modes of controlling Polfe: Manual Mode and Auto Mode. You can switch between modes by pressing the Space bar.

Common Controls

  Click: Shoot magic

Auto Mode

  Polfe will automatically move towards the cursor.
  Hold down the left mouse button: Turbo shot

Manual Mode

  Hold down the left mouse button to move towards the cursor.
  Double-click: Turbo shot

Polfe’s walking speed will change depending on how far she is from the mouse cursor. She’ll stop moving if the cursor is right next to her or if it moves above the blue screen border.

If your magic hits an enemy, it will take damage. If its health drops to zero, the enemy is defeated. Your magic shots will also open treasure chests. To change spells, click the Tome you want in the Magic List. The active Tome will be replaced by the Tome you selected, and you can then use the new Tome’s magic. In the same way, you can change the active item by clicking on a new item in the Item List.

Power-ups

You can power-up Polfe using items and Tomes you find throughout the stages.

Picking up new equipment will change the Equipment graphic and give you the new equipment’s status effect. Picking up a Tome will add new magic to your Magic List, while picking up an item will add it to your Item List.

Healing

Stand still to regenerate health. There is also medicine you can find that will raise your maximum health.

h03

Magic Stones

When you defeat an enemy, once in a while it will leave behind a red jewel called a Magic Stone, which you can pick up to add 1 to your Magic Power. The higher your Magic Power, the more powerful your magic. However, if you take damage, your Magic Power will drop by 1. There is an upper limit to your Magic Power, but certain types of equipment can raise your maximum or minimum Magic Power. Handy!

Game Over

Running into enemies or getting hit by their attacks will damage you and lower your health. If your health drops to zero, the game is over.

To save your game progress, click on the Save Button in the upper-right corner. After saving, you will be blocked from saving again for 5 seconds. When you continue, you will start from the spot where you entered the current map, with all items and health stats that you had when you saved. The tiny round button to the right of the Save Button is the Reset Button. Clicking this will return you back to the title screen.


Advanced Control Tips

Polfe is controlled with the mouse. Holding the mouse button moves her, while clicking it fires your magic. Before you get accustomed to the controls, it may be easy to accidentally run towards an enemy when you meant to attack it. The trick is not to get too close to the enemies. If you wind up too close, rather than trying to attack, it’s safer to run away and attempt your approach again. In the same spirit, you have to click the Tome icon at the bottom of the screen to switch spells, so rather than trying to switch in the heat of battle when you’re surrounded by monsters, a more prudent approach is to identify the monster’s weakness and switch to the appropriate spell before you begin your attack.

Items

Normal Tome

A weak spell with which Polfe starts the game. Can fire a turbo-shot.

Flame Tome

A spell that conjures flames. It only affects nearby enemies, but its constant stream of fire can come in handy.

Ice Tome

A spell that shoots giant blocks of ice. There are lots of monsters for whom ice is Bad Times, so this is nice to have.
