My third and final entry for this year’s Java4K: Wizzy 4K!
Wizzy, like most students, didn’t pay attention in the boring dark magic classes. Which is a pity, because one of his fellow students did. And he took over the University, turning all teachers and students into green slimy monsters! (while Wizzy was taking a nap) Not knowing any offensive spells, Wizzy has no chance of beating the Evil Guy. Not that he wants to anyway, he just wants to get out! The only spells Wizzy knows are gravity inversion spells, which he thought were rather neat. Help Wizzy get out alive using these spells!
