Really enjoying this. Even the (some would say) tedious repetitive battles. But they’re fun! It took me at least another hour to figure out how to get out of the fort (the switches move a room that acts as a bridge – aha!), and had to fight a bit armoured wolf boss thing on the way, who wasn’t exactly easy, but was certainly more manageable than all the other bosses I’ve fought so far!
It’s all that leveling up, I think. Oh, and my party is now at Level 3 (or at least, can be Level 3 if I so choose). That means less thinking time and more action time in battles, but more “slots” for magic attacks.
