Juggling balls are your ammo! You throw them at enemies to harm them and once you throw one you must walk over and pick it up to throw it again. This makes it so that you must sometimes walk near enemies for a second or two before you hit them; kind of like a dance. I was going to make a juggling joke but I couldn't think of anything.
Feedback is also good.

Let me know if there are any bugs!

    if you allow the player to have more than one ball that would make the game quicker

    You can get three balls. Can't you?

    Yes but what I mean is can you allow the player to 3 balls at the beginning? Or if you can make like a “super” that allows you one shot certain enemies that would be very cool.

    The reason I only give you one ball at the start is to get you used to the mechanic slowly. It may be a bit too slow tho. Thanks 4 the feedback!

    PS: In a day or two I will be releasing another game so look out for that!

    Great game Vincent ! I like the music, collecting the balls before getting killed, the 3D-walls, the juggling animation. Nice atmosphere, great concept.

    Thanks Attilaken! This game was made to try out Construct 3 and also to test out the juggling concept.
    The 3D walls are just shadow casters; as you can probably tell.
    Thanks!

    This game is awesome! I finally beat the magicians. :) I love the juggling animations and how you have to pick up the balls after you throw them. I like how the grand illusion is all sketchy. Great artwork! The concept is something I would never think to do! Amazing work!
