Avencast: Rise of the Mage tells the story of a young boy who's preparing himself in an Academy to be the best mage in the world… rings you a bell?

No, the mage's name is not Harry and the Academy is not Hogwarts. Despite any initial similarities, Avencast is quite a different game, more in the style of classical videogames such as Diablo or Neverwinter Nights. Just like these, Avencast mixes an RPG-style adventure with action-packed combats in real time, providing you with an entertaining title that will challenge your different skills.

This means that you'll need to be lethally quick in battles against all kinds of nasty supernatural creatures, but also rack your brains in order to solve a bunch of puzzles and riddles which will in turn give you access to new sections in the game. Also, there are loads of new weapons and spells to improve your character as you progress along the game. Sadly the number of available levels in the demo is too short to experience the game at its fullest, but at least you can get a glimpse of it.

Avencast features highly detailed graphics and a overhead perspective you can adjust with the mouse. Also, there are three different ways to control your characters (varying in camera position and avatar movement) so that you feel as comfortable as possible.

Avencast: Rise of the Mage provides you with an entertaining mixture of magic, action, roleplaying and real-time that combats that challenges both your dexterity and your brains.

In the magic kingdom of Aldgarth, demons tore up a dimension portal and invaded your academy. Now a forgotten demon army is about to descend on your world. Descend into the depths of a sunken civilisation, fight the mighty Demon Marshal Morgath, forged from the crystals of the Gods... and uncover the secret of your past!
