The Spirit Engine II is the sequel to The Spirit Engine. Like its predecessor, it's a side-scrolling RPG with tactical real-time combat.
The game takes place in the fictional world of Lereftain, at a time when murderous cults roam the streets, political tensions surge, war appears imminent and the country's inhuman rulers seem to be losing control.
The player can choose three out of nine different characters to form a party. Quests are taken from NPCs, experience is gained by defeating enemies in combat and occasionally also by completing certain quests, and items can be found or bought to equip the characters with.
Aside from a new story and quests, this sequel features improved graphics and various difficulty levels to play on. The combat system also underwent significant changes.
