Use timing mechanics to power your spells and block attacks, explore the twisted halls of a vast magic school, fight challenging monsters and bosses, find tons of hidden treasure, and uncover dark secrets never meant to be found.

Key Features

  • A heartwarming and twist-filled story about friendship, trust, love and loss.
  • Three students in battle, from a total of six, each with unique powers and strengths.
  • 48 unique spells: blast your enemies, knock them back, poison them, or heal and buff your allies. There is no “MP”… spells are about skill and strategy! Each with its own timing to master.
