Written by: Etan and Dan Shirron. Spellbinder, an adventure game in which you navigate your way through a castle, collect ingredients and make spells that can be used on various creatures that roam around in that castle. A side view game that uses the keyboard to navigate between rooms and interact with the environment. The castle consists of a couple floors, three citadels, catacombs and a dungeon. To move between the different levels teleports or portals have to be used (is there a way through a dungeon or catacomb?). There are secret passages, one-way doors and hidden doors that only appear after certain tasks has been accomplished. To create spells, one has to collect the various ingredients that can be found around the castle and then mix them together. Among the ingredients there are burnt ashes, that is used for spells that causes effects on enemies, sulphur- that is used for curing wounds, toad's legs that are used for freezing spells, and dried roots which are used on spells intended for the spellbinder. Examples of spells include heal- which is made by mixing sulphur and dried roots, while freeze which slows down enemies is created by combining toad's legs and burned ashes. Regular spells don't kill enemies but can be used to avoid their some bad effects. Recipes for the most common spells are listed in the game's instructions but by exploring the castle the player will find hints and clues on how to create more advanced spells.

Fellow atarians,

 

In the latest edition of the (superb) magazine EXCEL #4, they mention Fandal's new game "Spellbinder"

 

http://excel-retro-mag.co.uk/order-excel-magazine/excel-magazine-4/?v=79cba1185463

 

Does anyone know when it is going to be released?

 

Regards,

Spellbinder will be released with the new issue of the Flop magazine. It should have been out at Atariada 2017 already, but because of certain technical issues, Flop release has been postponed. You can expect it in the near future though.

I was told to keep it all hush-hush myself, while I was reviewing the game for Excel. And was told the exact same thing as pseudografx as to it's release. I had the game in my possession, of course, but after I finished it self-destructed. :?

 

But at least they were willing to get a copy of it into our hands for a review, free or otherwise, what a concept!

Yes it's a screen and such... it is a demo... just not of actual game play... the rest of the post should be perfectly valid and hopefully expanded on.... so what's not to like?

God - I hope that didn't put any hard up people out of work. What if this gets spread around for free? Oh wait - it already will be. Never mind. Can't wait to see it, and also can't wait to get my 4th copy of Excel, all of which I have PAID for, even though digital downloads are available.

Issue #4 is (late, I know!) shipping tomorrow - and the digital download is not available - I haven't created it yet... :)

 

It should be up by tomorrow night though... :)

Hi, FLOP magazine issue #60 (with Spellbinder and other games) was presented during last weekend's Czech party PLatariáda 2017.

 

The file can be downloaded from here. I wrote a short article on AtariOnline.pl.

Somewhat unnecessary as the cheat codes from Diamondz are still working. You can find them on Fandal's site.

Diamondz 2 woah there! This should have a thread of it's own - the original is a truly great game :)

Being someone who is also into the Role Playing and Adventure Game scene, I really like the look of this game. I think I speak for many of us that we want to see more games like this made for the Atari.
