Description

Nightcaster: Defeat the Darkness is a third-person, single-player, action-adventure game featuring spell combat and exploration. Players take the role of Arran, a novice wizard whose magical power grows as he ages throughout his quest to collect spells and rid the world of eternal night.

Players can choose brute force or smart tactics. Each school of magic is effective against a different color of enemy, and different schools will have spells with different effects as they level up. The schools are made up of over 40 spells, either light, dark, fire, or water. Spells can either be summoned right in front of Arran, or, by dislodging the magic stone on his staff and guiding it around him with the right thumbstick, fired with precision in any direction. Many items can be found hidden in levels that will provide Arran with bonuses, like increased health or the ability to power up a spell, and these bonuses carry between levels.
