About

Avencast: Rise of the Mage is an action RPG game developed by ClockStone Software. The game combines the elements of a beat-em-up, quest and puzzle games.

Plot

A young mage is brought up by an old wizard and is sent to Avencast wizardry academy. To complete his final exam, the mage has to go to a forest and find his own crystal. Upon returning back to the academy, it is revealed that Avencast fell under attack. The monsters roam the halls of the academy, while a few survivors barricade themselves deep in the academy. The mage has to save Avencast and figure out why was it attacked in the first place.

Gameplay

The main action in the game is killing enemies. It can be done in two ways: using magic spells or physically attacking them. Should the player choose the first method, they'll have to figure out the complex magic system.

The magic system consists of three branches: force spells (used for close quarters combat), wisdom spells (long range combat), and summon spells (used for summoning pets and comrades). The activation of every spell is made with the press of three buttons.

After killing an enemy, the players are awarded experience points which are used to level up your character. After leveling up, 10 points are given to the player, that can be used to upgrade the character stats or to buy new spells. The players can loot Avencast to find potions, notes, new armor or clothing.

      Avencast: Rise of the Mage reviews and comments

      Have never heard of this Game but ... It reminds me a little of an old Harry Potter Gameboy Game that I once had and loved very much. The Game has what and if you can get it like me in the Sale for €0.99, it's definitely worth a Look.

      Not so bad for a 2008 game, especially on promotion. Except after 15H of games: complete crash. Even when loading old backups the game crashes in the same place. The games continue to work but the main quest can no longer be completed. Too frustrating.

      Forget the Meta-Critics! You may be through in "only" 2 Days and the Replay value is also rather low away from the second skill line (from my Point of view), but for that it offers everything that The Role-playing Heart desires. An exciting and entertaining Story that Allows to develop his Character's Struggle for good, GEGEN the Evil In the Deal on all The things worth watching and playing.

      I was pleasantly surprised. Without being a revelation on which it should be thrown, I think the game (not quite recent in my case) is well worth its small piece (€0.99 in Promo). At €10, I will say clearly no, especially as I have to rummage the parameters because with the graphics to the Max, I have big bugs of textures. In short, a good little old school RPG that should make me a few hours. Attention, English dialogues.

      A good little hack that I had already made in front box version. As the name implies, there will be only one playable class but depending on the magic chosen we will have a mage based more on remote shooting or body to body... to the difference of some Diablo-like one will not have a lot of enemies to the screens but more technical fights than bourrins, with rolls to Dodge with therefore a rather slow progression... The game is not overly long but is really fun to play.

      Somehow I don't get really warm with this Game. I like the Setting, the Characters are very attractively synchronized, the Graphics are so far fine, but with the Controls I can't get that clear at all. I haven't played three Hours yet, so I can't say anything about the Story. In the Early Days you have the typical messenger cross quests. Although Avencast seemed very appealing to me overall, I don't think I can play through it as I struggle with the Controls in particular. So far, I haven't really found anything that captivates me. It's really rare for me that I don't Feel like continuing to play so early. Maybe it's also because I'm untrained with Keyboard and Mouse. Therefore, I would rather not recommend controller friends to this Game. (Controller is not supported)
