You are a wizard in your magic circle and you have to use your magic talisman to do battle with the armies of Hell who throw spells at you. Neither you nor the attackers are allowed to touch the magic circle, even if continuous fighting has partly erased it.

Ieuan: Reminds me a bit of Asteroids. The 'rotate through 45 degrees' feature is a nuisance — it should allow simultaneous keypress or joystick diagonals instead. 7/10

Dilwyn: Other than Ieuan's comment, a nice game. Slow at first, but once it gets going it's fun to play. 8/10

Gerralt: All events are covered with a 'zap' or 'ping'. The sound slows things down a bit which, once the game has got into top gear, causes a little jerkiness. There doesn't seem to be a time limit as long as you keep alive. 7/10
