Description

Robert is just an ordinary guy - or so he thought before he received that fateful letter from a relative in England. Arriving at the mysterious Stonehenge, Robert is teleported to Valoria - a magical world populated by legendary monsters and wizards. And that is precisely what Robert has to become (a wizard, not a monster). Can he survive battles against evil creatures in the seven elemental realms of Valoria?

Spellcraft: Aspects of Valor is a strategy game based on spell creation and large-scale battles. Creating spells is a complicated process that involves finding components (powders, stones, jewels, etc.), mixing them according to a formula, and saying the magic word. Using a wrong formula will result in the player character's death. Besides the traditional attack and defense spells, the player can also create magic that modifies the terrain, and summon creatures that fight on the protagonist's side.

Trivia

SNES Port

An SNES port of SpellCraft: Aspects of Valor was also developed a year after the release of the PC version, in 1993. However, it was canceled before it was released. Years later, individuals in the emulation scene found a copy of a pre-release beta of the game, copied the ROM to their computers, and released it online. It apparently is fully completable, and in-game footage of the title suggests that it has slightly different gameplay than the PC release; the SNES version combined a simplified version of the original game with a close combat system similar to that seen in The Immortal.
