To win this ancient Feud you must "out-spell" your rival Wizard Leanoric.
In Hieke's herb garden, you will find the ingredients or your spells but things can happen in this game of magic.
"No one knows 'ow long they have been 'ere; even old Albert don't recall 'em comin' an' 'e reckons 'e might be over 'undred!
I mean, all we wants is a bit o' peace an' quiet an' leave to go about our business. We're simple folk 'ere in Little Dullford and we can't be doin' with magician spells. I never did 'old with folk meddlin' in things best left alone.
We'd see 'em o' course; in the forest pickin' toadstools an' suchlike, or p-raps one would pop into Tubby Hieke's shop for 'erbs an' stuff, but by an' large they left us normal folk alone, and that's 'ow we like it.
They'd 'ad arguments before, we all know that. Well, readin' them magic books all day they can't be right in the 'ead, can they?
Anyway, two summers back, or maybe three (I remember because that was the year Albert's donkey died) old Leanoric (he's the older one I think), he turned 'is brother Learic into a frog! His own brother! But he turned 'im back after a week an' at least they didn't bother us.
Two weeks back, all this changed; first the forest went quiet for a few days, not even a sparra' dared to make a sound. Then the noises began, first shoutin' then all manner o' bangs, explosions and things best not thought about. Yesterday, old Leanoric upped an' left an' moved to another 'ut on t'uther side o' village. hieke (who knows 'em better 'n most), reckons they's about to start a fuedin' an' woe betide the poor soul who gets in their way.
That's as maybe but there's strange things afoot in this 'ere village an' no mistake. It don't take no fancy book learnin' to figger we ain't seen the last o' this, you mark my words."
You take the role of Learic and playing the game is simply a matter of moving through the kingdom collecting ingredients to make spells. You are able to mix these spells and use them against your opposing Wizard Leanoric, but remember Leanoric is doing the same and is out to destroy you.
Stand above your own cooking pot. Press fire button and move joystick left and right to move the pages of the spell book. When the book is open to the required spell, release the fire button. If you have both the ingredients, this is shown in the red in the spell book, the spell will be mixed and you will be armed with it.
To cast a spell, you need to be armed with it. This is done at the mixing stage. Pressing the fire button will cast the spell. Some spells may be used only once whilst others may be used a number of times.
Most spells act as necessary when cast; however, some of the more destructive ones such as lightning and fireball will need some control to become effective. It's up to you to find out how to control your spells.
