The main mechanic is Magicks, the ability to combine 8 different Elements to spells. The rest of the game is similiar to “Hack and Slash” games.
In short, once again you have to save the world. Starting with a “saving the world party” and ending by “saving the world”. The Game is highly addictive, has great humor
Pros: Seemingly unlimited combination of the Elements to create spells. Funky Weapons like a Machine Gun M60. All in all it is a short but very difficult game, you have to permanently experiment with the Elements to find the weak spots of your enemies.
Cons: Sometimes it is hard to keep track of all the different combinations of Elements. Sometimes Spells do not work because you are wet or on fire or something else is going on.
DLC: Besides the classical fantasy setting, a Vietnam addition was created and several other Mods.
