Title note: unique identify: The Enchantress of Florence
A Feiticeira de Florença é a história de uma mulher que procura ser senhora do seu próprio destino num mundo de homens. Irmana duas cidades que quase não se conhecem: a hedonista capital mogol, onde o inteligente imperador se debate diariamente com questões de crenças, desejos e a traição dos filhos, e o mundo florentino, igualmente sensual, de poderosos cortesãos, filosofia humanista e desumana tortura.
Estes dois mundos, tão distantes, acabam por se revelar estranhamente semelhantes, e ambos são dominados pelos encantamentos das mulheres.

Críticas de imprensa
« “A Feiticeira de Florença” é um festim exótico, supra abundante, coberto de ouro e pedrarias, tão vertiginoso como cómico, tão inventivo, irreal e irónico como os contos da Mil e Uma Noites. [ ... Rushdie] leva-nos aos sonhos e visões de muitos séculos, desde a magnificência das cidades italianas do Renascimento e dos feitos dos Médicis e dos Sforzas; às naus das Índias e ao naufrágio de Camões, do Al-Andaluz à Pérsia, numa infindável viagem de memórias exóticas e surreais.»

Since Wario holds projectiles above his head, they add to his height, something which the player must consider when moving him. If Wario is knocked, he’ll drop what he’s holding. If the object is knocked, it’ll fall out of his hands. Heavy projectiles can’t be thrown as far as regular projectiles. Roll ROLL is tied to slopes, which restricts its role as an attack mechanic, but gives me the freedom to make subtle puns. Forward Stroke FORWARD STROKE is the only swim mechanic which can attack horizontally, however, because it can’t break blocks, it can only be used to attack Goggley-Blades when they swim vertically.
The de-optimisation makes applying the mechanics similar to a puzzle. This is also true of the transformations, however, the rebalancing tends to be more extreme so as to make each transformation further distinctive and accentuate certain wrinkles of engagement. For example, Bouncy Wario can spring jump vertically until he hits a ceiling (optimal vertical movement), but slowly hops left and right (de-optimised horizontal movement) and reverts to regular Wario after a short time (de-optimised state).
The attacking state, without any lapses in animation. Thus it’s ideal for removing long sets of horizontally-aligned enemies and blocks. Four weaknesses balance out the advantages. It takes a moment for Wario to charge the mechanic and enter the attacking state. This leaves him running forward, open to being knocked. 1. 2. DASH ATTACK’S consistent fast speed makes objects come into view quicker and thus more stress is placed on the player’s reaction skills. 36 Game DesiGn Companion: a CritiCal analysis of Wario Land 4 3.
