While you can pit enemy balls into their place through the web version here on Itch.io, we recommend downloading the desktop version for the best experience, with higher resolutions and better performance! Push them into the pit!

Please expand the game

Glad you enjoyed it! We don't have any plans to expand on Wizsnooks at this time, but we're currently working on the full version of Townseek if you'd like to check it out too! Cheers! 🐳


It's a good game although feels a little too hard because i keep dying because of i don't have enough health when hitting enemies. I also disenchant my items too.


Glad that you liked the game! And yes, unfortunately, we've made difficulty a bit hard in retrospect. 🙇 Make sure that you're equipping stronger items to be able to defeat enemies, and remember that if you push them into a pit of lava, they'll be defeated instantaneously!

If you're in a table with multiple enemies, remember to always go for the Skeletons or Goblins at first too since they're easier to defeat and give you items quicker. Here's the best of luck, cheers! 🐳


Thanks for the tips. (:


Really fun and creative, but the lava can force players (at least me) to play incredibly carefully and slow, but that might be what makes it fun. Overall great game. Oh wait maybe lava isn't too bad... 

Hah! When we look back at this game, we do think that maybe the lava should have worked differently as a mechanic. Maybe instead of straight-up causing a game over, it should have just caused a respawn with damage. Still, that's the sort of stuff that game jam hindsight doesn't tell you. 😅

Glad that you had a great time with it though! 🐳



but he only has 4 gems


nice game tho


Any similarities are purely coincidental. We're extremely glad you enjoyed the game though! 💜


Cool idea. But. The game ends too abruptly. Items don't seem to have enough of an effect and not being able to see the whole table kinda sucks.


Very nice game. Very clever use of 2 unlikely games genres! The bounce trajectory was a bit unpredictable both against the walls and against enemies but other than that it was very good. Keep up the good work!


The mix of genres fits unbelievably well! It feels too random at times, though, with some levels feeling too easy and some being too challenging in comparison.
