The little mage has to escape his homeland, that has been corrupted by strange monsters.


How to play

Press Space to begin the game, then:

  • O: to move left.
  • P: to move right.
  • Q: to move up.
  • A: to move down.
  • R: to reset the level

In the Amstrad 1.1 version and in Unity, you move with:

  • W: to move up.
  • S: to move down.
  • A: to move left.
  • D: to move right.

Furthermore, you can move using a joystick if you want.

Our little mage cant walk with his small legs, but he can dash. That means you can't change direction in mid-air.

About us

We are a group of 3 students from the University of Alicante developing our first game on Z80 assembly for Amstrad CPC using the CPCTelera game engine and this is an entry for the CPCRetroDev 2021 contest.

The game was developed in one month and a half (that half was to learn the basics about assembly Z80).

Now we have also a new version made in Unity and we are 4 members.


The game have to reference in someway to the game Rainbow Islands by Ocean as a rule for the CPCRetroDev of this year.

You can find the rainbow and star in the goal animation after completing a level, and like extra gesture there is an amstrad that is playing a game with an island and rainbow on the first level, the house of the little mage.
