Description

A brave man is trying to save a princess caught in the tower. However, the Magic Sergeant Zeno stands on his way and will try to stop the hero, pursuing his own agenda.

Tower of the Sorcerer is a cross between a puzzle game and an RPG. To save the princess the protagonist must go up the floors. He fights the bad guys and gets keys to open doors. The hero has a health meter and it is possible to acquire items to increase defensive power, offensive power, and health. The levels are not randomly generated.
