Magic & Mayhem: The Art of Magic is a unique blend of strategy,
tactical combat, and role-playing brought to life with full 3D graphics
and an epic storyline. As a Wizard, you have the power to conjure terrifying
creatures and devestating spells against you opponent. Before each battle,
you choose which spells you will bring with you, and then use the spells
in real-time tactical combat against your opponent. You'll create archers
and knights, griffons and harpies, Demons and Dragons...each with a
distinct tactical advantage. You can also cast a wide variety of spells
on both your creatures and your opponents'. Strengthen your forces with
bloodlust or iron skin spells, or crush your enemy with meteor shower,
apocalypse, or bury. You can even morph your Wizard into the form of
a creature, or raise creatures from the dead to fight for you.
In the single-player campaign, your character's skills and abilities
develop as the game progresses through items found in scenarios and
experience gained from successfully completing tasks. You can choose
how you want to develop your character as the game progresses, focusing
on a particular type of magic (chaos, neutral, or law) or combat strategy.
Do you want your Wizard far away from the lines of battles, conjuring
up creatures to do the fighting for you, or do you want to be on the
front lines, destroying the enemy with your attack spells? The choice
is up to you, and you can change your strategy from mission to mission.
Robust multiplayer support allows gamers to battle hand-to-hand with
up to eight friends or computer opponents over LAN or the Internet,
including hand-to-hand and team play. Create a team with your friends
and engage in titanic battles with enemy Wizards as you work together
to form the perfect alliance. Or, jump into a skirmish with one or more
computer-controlled Wizards on a wide variety of maps for a quick fix.
A simple interface ensures that spell selection is never cumbersome
or tedious. The gameplay screen allows you to remove buildings and trees
from sight whenever they obstruct your view of the action. With numerous
levels of zoom and 360 freedom to rotate around the map, you'll always
be able to see every bit of the action anywhere on the map.
