Gotta say, this isn't quite what I was expecting. I was thinking this was going to be a defensive spell. I was looking forward to that because how often does one see defensive spells in dink? Not often I can tell you that. But alas- this it not really a defensive spell.
Here's what I expected/hoped for:
First- the wall (it is called a wall) functions as a wall because that's how walls should function and blocks dink and enemy sprites from moving through it. You know, cause that's what walls are for.
Second- Even though the wall is actually hard it has no_hit() on so missiles can still zoom over it and hit enemies and junk.
Third- It exploded when it dies. I was definitely more hoping for this one than expecting it.

Now, this is what I actually got:
One- The wall isn't hard, enemies that walk through it take damage. It feels like a placed rather than a fired magic rain spell.
Two- It animates really nicely.
Three- The area where it will actually damage the enemy is kind of annoying.

Anyways, besides it not actually being a wall it's a good spell. It looks nice and functions well enough to be used by one and all with ease. If your looking for a bunch of various spells this will be for you. If your looking for spells with a lot of flare, this is probably not for you.
