About This Game

The Voodoo Priestess has called upon undead warriors. The Chaos
Master is summoning a doom drake. Cities are being consumed by
the plague. What are you going to do?

Play your role in this clash between wizards, command your troops
and conquer other countries, destroy all who stand in your way or
be the first who casts the legendary Spell of Mastery!
This is an epic adventure you cannot miss!


A world is randomly generated every time the player starts a new game, with the player being able to adjust land size, magic strength, game difficulty, and other features. The player can customize the skills, spell choices, and appearance of their wizard, choosing one of 14 races for the starting city.

The gameplay starts with units exploring their surroundings; pushing back the strategic map’s fog of war. During exploration, the player defeats monsters that are guarding treasure, finds the best locations for new cities, discovers the Towers of Wizardry that link the game’s two planes of Arcanus and Myrror, and locates the cities of enemy wizards. Apart from the Player’s first city, cities are established by settlers, then upgraded by adding buildings, which in turn improves the economy, availability and strength of units, city’s growth rate, mana, and economics. Cities produce food, gold and mana. Military units require at least food and often gold upkeep; spellcasters consume mana in combat. While the player is exploring and colonizing new territories, new magical spells are researched. Spells can be used during or outside of combat


  • Enduring replayability due to its randomness and extremely diverse magic and summoning system
  • Explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate – 4X in a Fantasy setting
  • An excellent combination of strategy and RPG elements
