Wizard Time :


In Brief:
Wizard Time is a nice little 2D platformer with retro graphics. Navigate your wizard through various levels using the portals. Initially picking up a magical staff to defend himself with and some jumping boots so that he can jump onto platforms with ease. Movement is accomplished via the left and right arrow keys. Once you've picked up the boots use the Z key to jump and the X key to use the magical staff. When entering a portal you have to use the up arrow to activate it. The up arrow in conjunction with the X key will also send a pulse of magic upwards. Some enemies can be killed using the staff from low platforms without having to put your character in danger, but generally you have to be on the same level and risk contact with the enemy. Once you start using your staff, it pushes back the enemy so long as you keep firing until dead. There's also a sprint power up to pick up that allows you to move faster.

Controllers work to some extent, however, like some previous games, when accessing the menu items you cannot go back to a previous menu list, you have to use the Esc key.


You can see a video of game play HERE

Overall a thumbs up from me 7 out of 10 for relatively easy platforming, with some action involved. I preferred playing the game with the shader option turned off, when the shaders are turned on it made the game look like it was being played on an old crt (cathode ray tube) screen. The game is definitely worth downloading IMO; especially if, like me you prefer easier platform games. :)
Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found zero hits from 63 antimalware engines. You can see the scan HERE

One thing that makes this unique is the simulation of a retro style monitor. However to the human eye if you look at a CRT monitor from far away and play a game you won't see as many lines as this game or any game simulates for that matter. There is a big difference.

This looked like being a good, fun game, but when I started it I got an alert from Norton saying "Threats blocked". On viewing the details it relates to suspicious action by WizardTime.exe, saying it was attempting to lock a Windows file called input.inf

I've had plenty of other stuff from here without any problems so I suspect this is most likely a false positive, but I thought other users here should be aware of it.

Hi Dawkinsdog

Thank you for your comment, it's very appreciated. My Virus total scan gave the game a clean bill of health from over 60 antimalware suites. There has been no impact on my computer following the installation of todays game.

I've installed virtually every game given away via the game giveawayoftheday since it's inception back in 2006 (approaching 3000 counting repeats), only missing a few while on vacation and even some of those I managed to grab using my hotels internet.

The giveaway team always check all downloads in their severs to ensure they are safe to download and install. If they did allow an infected game to be downloaded, they would lose their good standing and probably most of the community. What you are seeing from your own security is almost certainly a false positive. The team have never given away a game infected with malware.

Whiterabbit-uk, Hi, thanks for the quick response. I've been enjoying many of the games you and the team have brought us for years now, and I trust you completely and appreciate all the hard work you put in.

It's highly unusual for anything from GaotD, be it game or app, to flag an alert of any kind so I presumed it was almost certainly a false positive (Norton can be over fastidious and will sometimes flag stuff on a reputation basis purely because not enough people use it). I thought I'd better mention it this time though, just in case, as it wasn't the usual reputation alert.

Thanks again, keep up the good work!
