Lord of Arcana is an Action RPG game in which the player (as a customizable character) is taken to the world of Horodyn, where he will have to acquire the Arcana power. To do so, he will need to hone his skills by completing quests from the village of Porto Carillo's slayers guild. The quests consist of defeating specific foes, gathering material, and so on. As the player becomes stronger, the Arcana Stones from the nearby Arayd Temple will awaken, allowing the Master Guardians to be challenged, and their power claimed.

The quests happen in set locations such as forests, caves and deserts. Upon defeating monsters in these quests, various materials can be obtained (either from the field, after battles or by destroying Monster Parts) and be used to craft equipment in the village. Apart from usable items like potions and charms, a variety of weapons, armors, orbs and cards can be equipped.

Weapons: five types of weapons exist, each with their specific strengths and weaknesses. Changing weapons will be useful depending on which opponent the player wants to face.

Armors: The armors, shield, and headgear. They can bestow great protection and sometimes have slots to equip orbs.

Orbs: They have a wide array of powers. Some can be used to boost elemental attacks or defenses, some allow quicker movement or makes the weak points of monsters visible.

Cards: Needed to cast magic. There are regular spells and the more powerful Ultimate Magics, which summons the Arcana Guardians to perform some incredible feats.

The Guild also acts as a place where multiple players can join and quest together via the PSP's ad hoc mode. The available quests are the ones that the host player can access in regular gameplay.
