Thanks for the advice, but unfortunately it is indeed too late for poor icarus_tower_1 who met with the unfortunate fate of being cemented inside a magic wall.

Hopefully self evident... but just in case, I call this spell Meteor Shower. It uses just the 2 colours per frame (no-one wants colour clash), runs at the holy grail of 8-bit animation 24fps, and is in 16x16.

Rather than just show the spell, I thought it would be nice to see the effect it might have on a King Cobra.

Here's the single 'cell' version.

And the version showing the strike hitting neighbouring cells (and the bat surviving). This way, though the selected cell is obvious, the strike to the peripheral cells is hidden to the last moment.

And I'm sure there's room for a bear in the game.

Here is a spell I believe would fit very well in the original game.
This is the spell I will be submitting.

Cheers Inc, this was about the 3rd incarnation of the spell, first couple i envisioned as coming in from the sides of the screen but didn't really work as they were.

Have loved seeing everyone's work in this task!

I find it a bit confusing, due to the cyclic nature of the animation. Between life and death is a long time while the meteor strikes, and then it jumps quickly back from death to alive. Makes it look more like the meteor revives a dead cobra, rather than killing it.
For the rest, nicely done of course.

I'm also loving all the creations on display here.

As if the judges will value my opinion when making their judgement. And nobody said it had to look realistic. :)
