About

Arcane Magic is set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, and will see you journey through legendary Warhammer locations as you assemble wizards, spells and artefacts. You have a maximum of three wizards you can bring into play, and for each of these you decide which spells and scrolls to bring based on their school of magic. Each campaign consists of eight levels, and each campaign rewards you with a new wizard. Two campaigns are included with the base game. Measure your Power carefully as you select which spells to cast as you aim to optimize your round. Arcane Fulcrums are vital sources of magic found on every level that both restore and increase your Power. Consider how the winds of magic affect your spells and choose carefully what action to take as the enemy is relentless. Through your journeys you will come upon treasures of old, even the most sought after Golden Plunder Packs which contain ancient artefacts that allow you to bind scrolls of any school of magic into them, allowing you timeless control over their raw energies. Collect and manage your critical pool of Warpstones and Gold as you progress deeper into even more challenging realms.

The game also features an optional DLC called Jungles of Lustria which offers a campaign of more challenging content and even better rewards, including a new wizard, the Slann Mage-Priest, upon completion! There is also optional in-app purchases for new wizards, gold and Golden Plunder Packs (the rarest treasure, which also drops in-game).


Originally debuted on iOS to critical acclaim, Arcane Magic has undergone several game iterations and is now ready for Windows PC and Mac exclusively on Steam! In comparison to its mobile origin, the PC/MAC version comes with steam integration, greatly improved graphics - including high resolution textures and noticeably enhanced shaders - better control systems and also comes bundled with a Golden Plunder Pack which sees you start off with a powerful magical artefact.

The Deluxe Package includes not only the core game, the additional campaign Jungles of Lustria and all four additional wizards, it also disables the ability for any in-game purchase of gold and plunder packs. The four included named wizards (Balthasar Gelt, Wurrzag, Tetto'eko and Teclis) unlock for play as you defeat them in the storyline, ensuring that the difficulty and fun-factor of the game is maintained. The Deluxe Package represents more than 50% savings compared to individual purchases!

Warhammer: Arcane Magic reviews and comments

Great game! The difficulty is well dosed-) the game is translated into several languages, which is very positive. Even if you make 1 or 2 small extra purchases to have a team of three characters and a card chest, that's reasonable. Then if you keep doing a few games, you win a lot of golds and rewards. For example for your first day, you get 100 golds and the scenarios are unlocked fast enough, etc. After 3 hours of play, I find this game nice and relaxing-) we really want to keep playing!!

Don't Even Think about buying this swill. As We open the game we find a more than lousy graphic section, not only for the quality of textures and modeling, but for the graphical environment itself; Simple rubbish. I am Not a person obsessed with graphic quality, rather on the contrary, I enjoy indie games without demanding much in this aspect. I Still believe that a game should be required a graphical environment and not aesthetic, but does not harm the eye. The only reason I bought it, and like I guess the vast majority of buyers, is because it takes advantage of the Warhammer flag and the board games in general. I bought It thinking multiplayer, but it's not even entertaining, and I'm a big fan of the board games of this style. You get to make It unsmokeable within two minutes of starting. I paid for this crap, but I don't recommend adding it to your free Steam library, the less you pay.

Nothing to do with microtransactions but for me it is a game with little tactical interest. Basically you start with 2 mages and a spell each only then you can buy with the money of the game (and without needing to go to the checkout) of the new spells specific to each Mage so once the tutorial completed, your fire Mage possesses his basic spell and s one goes out of the next level and your Mage from the air his basic spell. Mages can cast other spell in the form of single-use parchment and are found DS of chests. You walk on a map but what is the interest because as we approach the goal, the monsters appear and the battle arena is formed: so it is useless to go explore this corner of map where you suspect enemies to hide because they will only appear when you are 1 or 2 squares away from the lens. The side board game also badly transcribed because there is no fun and stress to see roll his dice to see if one succeeds his spell: the result of the dice is displayed as soon as one clicks. Of course, in terms of game mechanics this does not change anything, but in the spirit of a board game with dice launched, it is missed (for me) even at 4 euros, this is the 1st time I ask for a refund on steam...
