A fan-made Puella Magi Madoka Magica video game created by 耳小屋. It is a side-scrolling in which the player can choose between any character of the series in any with barrier.
This game provides examples of:
Awesome but Impractical: Goddess!Madoka. You become immune to any enemy attack, and you can't die. However, you lose your HP and it ruins any chances to have a high score.
Megane!Homura. She can throw bombs at her enemies and stop time, so this is great, right? Wrong. She is one of the slowest characters, her melee attack sucks and her bombs can also damage her. Normal!Homura has all of her good sides and none of the bad ones (except the bombs' damage).
Yuma's healing skill. You would think a healing skill would be useful, right? In a sense it is, but it costs an entire Mana Meter and half of your remaining time.
The third and final stage of Gertrud's battle can count as this when playing in Expert difficult.
Cast from Hit Points: One of Kyouko's special attacks. It can damage all enemies on-screen, and destroy anything that isn't a boss but it also costs 50 HP (Which is 1/4 from the total HP a character can have)
