Game Title
Magic Carpet

Release Date

First released on PC way back in 1994 and then remade for the original PlayStation Magic Carpet is in essence a free movement FPS Taking on the role of a magician on a magic carpet you ll run through around 50 levels killing stuff with magic and then collecting its mana Collect enough mana and the next level is opened up The stuff being killed is not defenceless though far from it Enemies range from relatively harmless vultures right through to swarms of undead firespitting dragons and titanic wyverns There s also other mages to contend with in some levels as many as seven and that s where the toughest challenges are at Each mage possesses a castle As long as the castle exists the mage has a spawning point should he she die The castle is upgradable provided the mage has collected enough mana so levels quickly fall into a rhythm that is split evenly between fighting the wildlife to collect mana protecting your own castle and then attacking your human opponents So far it probably all sounds pretty standard but Magic Carpet has a host of ideas that work so well the game still remains relevant today The maps are reasonably small by today s standards but they really are open each map is filled with secrets and dangers to find and avoid The levels are also morphable it is possible to destroy environments as it was possible to create volcanoes and gaping chasms There is also a huge range of spells to collect and use 24 in total ranging from standard shield and health regeneration through to more aggressive fireballs and the awesome destructive might of meteors
