Synopsis

After a tragic event you're casted out of the plane of existence you reside in, only for your soul to reappear in King Slime's coliseum with most of your memory wipped out. Faint images echo in your mind, reteaching you tricks from your earlier years, as horrid enemies get slowly close to your spectral appearance.

The moment you manage to materialize your signature cape and mask, King Slime's voice thunders through the arena. You're the latest lost soul to arrive to the battlefields of glory, the time to fight and regain your past life is here!


Setting

Souliseum is a short Action RPG combat game where you choose which spells to learn and how your character grows. Fight through waves of slimy monsters intent on gunking your progress.

After each battle, you will be able to choose a new spell to learn, or a stat upgrade to prepare you for the next battle.

How to play

Fight through rounds of monsters to reach the boss. After each round you will be able to choose an upgrade, choose wisely and achieve glory!

As for the controls, it's an arcade game it's really easy to grasp. The increasing number of skills our heroine/hero can get makes things slightly more difficult, but nothing is out of reach.
Controls are only on keyboard, but it may change if development goes on after submission.

They go as follows:
