Description

Young Azurik must learn to control the elements, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, using his double sided ax, the Axion. His goal is to restore balance to the universe. You must journey through a vast, mysterious land, full with dynamic and dangerous creatures.

As Azurik, you must travel through four realms, each associated with the four elements. The Earth realm contains numerous mountains, lots of dirt and dust terrain, and rocks. The Air realm is populated by clouds and floating islands. The Fire realm is alive with molten lava, fissures and spewing geysers. The Water realm is submerged. Azurik must recover the four elements and return them to their rightful place before the world collapses.

Trivia

Music

When high-profile composer Jeremy Soule was to conduct the Prague Philharmonic, he did so not in person but via a "virtual session" through a digital audio and video link.

Save points

Stephen Clarke-Willson, director and producer of Azurik, acknowledged that one of the main problems with the game is that the game world was too large for so few save points. On his blog, he mentions how he campaigned to have smaller levels and more save points but in the end he was ultimately overruled. He recalls how he found a small way around this:
The best I could do was to sneak in the 'save anywhere' cheat rather late in the process. Without the 'save anywhere' cheat, the game is very, very hard.
