About Pugnacious Wizards 2

Find magic spells, avoid traps, steal the three amulets, and escape the castle.

This is a fuller remake of my 2013 7DRL Pugnacious Wizards. It has better traps, better magic, and better gameplay and details. Pugnacious Wizards 2 is considered done and I won't work on it except for bugfixes.


  • Interesting traps that you can use to your advantage. Rooms with moving blocks, fire arrows that burn, rotating towers that shoot freezing arrows, and more.
  • Magic with several effects - some good and some dangerous. Teleport and burn anything nearby or shoot magic missiles that bounce off walls and split when they hit someone.
  • Intro screen! Watch The Hero run through the castle and find new ways to die.
