It's not a bad start but a control guide would be greatly appreciated.

This is an early demo, a lot of what you will see in the game is subject to change. You can learn more about the game on my devblog/patreon at https://www.patreon.com/nosebecc
B.E. Witches is a game in which you can explore a mysterious world filled with dungeons and secrets, fight monstergirls in a unique type of battle that mixes puzzle, RPG and shoot'em up elements, create items and spells through the use of alchemy. Every monster you fight can join you and, by leveling your characters enough, you can rank them up which changes their appearance.
Taking inspiration from several games of the dungeon crawler genre such as Darkest Dungeon or Etrian Odyssey, exploration in B.E. Witches will take the form of a 2D sidescroller in which you can move from room to room to find treasures and ressources, which will help you fight stronger monsters.
In B.E. Witches, the fights are a mix of puzzle game and RPG with a pinch of shoot'em up. Line up blocks of the same color to obtain mana, which you can use to cast spells. Take too long however, and your opponent will attack you and summon heart eaters, demons that will attack your cursor until you get rid of them.
All of this amounts to a high tension kind of battle that requires you to react quickly to an ever changing situation.
Many items, accessories, spells and more can be created through alchemy, as long as you have the required ressources and recipes.
Once you do, alchemy takes the form of a special, simplified battle. Clear it, and the result will be synthesized!
Last but not least, the rank system will allow you to make your characters stronger if they have leveled enough, along with a slight change in appearance. There are 5 different ranks for each characters!

Saw you post this on a game dev thread in /v/, and holy shit, is it relevant to my interests.
HAving that said, GODDAMn you make me work for the 'levels.' I need to try again later, but I couldn't get past level 4. AND I KNOW things get more 'intense' after level 4.
Your webm on /v/ showed as such.
I'm really looking forward to progress on this game.
I'm glad you like it!
Level 4 is actually the last level in this demo, and yeah, I didn't realise how hard it was at the time. This demo is actually pretty outdated by now, I'm working as hard as I can to have a new one ready by november which will give a better idea of how the game is going to work as a whole, not only the fights.
Thanks for the support!
