    You're flying just feet above real landscapes. There's a dragon in front of you, kilter crabs behind and some guy on another carpet cutting you to ribbons. Not enough power for the accelerate spell. Damn. Looks like you're gonna have to fight this one out...

    Bullfrog's latest epic is a thrilling fight to the death; a highly original blend of non-stop arcade action and strategy. A new real time landscaping engine combines exquisite graphics, awesome gameplay and one of the fastest flying experiences ever seen on a PC. Get ready to take a Magic Carpet ride to glory.
