Flagstaff – Chapter One is a fantasy turn-based tactical game created by Joel Esler where you control a party of four heroes, in service to a king with a fondness for tasteful rugs and skeletons that stay in the ground.

Nice game, with cute graphics and simple controls but too short, and way too easy. Looking forward to the next chapter…

Have fun!

Control your avatar with the arrow keys or A, W, and D to move. Press the spacebar to retrieve anomalies. Click and hold your mouse button to aim, drag in direction of desired gravity, then release to fire. Play the “Easy” levels for detailed instructions and get used to the mechanisms.
