Ignis is the game about wizard duels. As a one of 8 the most powerful mages in the world you are taking part in a great tournament. Game consists of rounds where you fight with other wizards. You have 24 spells from 100 pot. You can only move laterally. Casting a spell is the most important thing. You can control your missile path. Which means that your spell can be destroyed by your opponents missile. You must draw the best path to avoid opponents spells, obstacles and hit the enemy wizard. To your disposition, there are a lot of spells from 4 magic fields. Destruction, Life, Nature and Secret. Each of them depends on different playstyle. Destruction mages deal great amount of damage. Life mages heal and buff themselves. Nature mages create obstacles and change terrain. Secret mages depends on curses. Ignis is a very fast game. One round is around 5-10 minutes. In a game you can play single player with storyline or multiplayer.
One battle is around 3 minutes. Two wizards stand on two sides of the arena. Each wizard have 24 spells to his disposition. You can move only sideways. Main mechanic of the game is taking control of your missiles. When you press left mouse button you can draw a path on the arena. When you release button your spell will follow this path. The goal is to avoid enemy missiles, obstacles and hit his health points to zero.
There aren't only missiles in your spellbook. There are a lot more! From deadly lasers, teleportation, shields that can protect you from enemy missiles to meteor from the sky. You can combine above 100 spells to make your perfect combo.
During the battle you can summon a creature. Each creature have unique skills that can help you win. For example "Gog" will throw fireball towards enemy at some moments. Another creature "Guardian Angel" will protect you from missiles. "Shadow" like a demonic creature will attack enemy wizard with his sharp claw and poison him. "Driada" will put mystical fog that reversing opponent missiles.
Not everything is done. There are some bugs and I've showed only 8 spells but I think after watching this video you will know about what my game is.
