XNA 4.0 Game with Source: Mage Defender Deluxe

Mage Defender Deluxe was created as a remake during a workshop/presentation I had. It was made pretty fast but I decided to share the source anyways.

In the game, you will need to defend your castle at all cost. Shoot the enemies that move towards you with multiple spells and strategies to take them out one by one. After each wave, you will be able to visit the shop to upgrade abilities, buy new spells, mana/health potions and upgrade your castle (Gameplay video can be found below).

The original game was a DOS game made by Dark Codex in 1999 and looked like this:

The new version contains more enemies, spells, upgradable castle, skill points, attributes, homing spells, controllable spells, many enemies with basic AI and much more.
The game works with the XBox360 controller, just connect it to your PC and play.

You can find the source for the game at GitHub:

  5. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
