This freeware remake of the Spanish platform-adventure from 1987 updates the graphics and sounds while maintaining the same gameplay of the original. As before, the player controls a wizard roaming the halls of a haunted castle filled with legendary creatures and monsters, where he must collect all the ingredients for a spell to defeat an evil warlord.

The wizard can shoot a paralyzing enchantment that freezes the enemies for a short time, allowing him to escape before they can do any harm. The required items are randomly scattered on the castle grounds, and the main character must flip switches to open portcullis and other passages to gain access to all the objects.

The main game screen is split horizontally in the middle, with the top portion showing the wizard, and the bottom part initially displaying the location of one of the magical tools and interactions happening on distant places, like the opening of a new entrance and other special events. Once the crystal ball is acquired, the player can monitor the activities of certain characters by pressing the keys from 1 to 5, to show them moving at the bottom half. The game language can be set to English, Spanish or Italian.
