It’s pretty much a word searching game with a fantasy spin on and glorious wordplay in the title. You will make your way through progressively harder enemies with more words to find. There will be a selection of letters on the screen and to cause damage to the enemy you’ll have to find as many words as you can.
To add a little pressure you’ll also be on the clock. Whilst you look for words the enemies attack timer will tick down, once that hits zero they’ll take a swing at you, reducing your health. So, dithering for too long will mean death.
You’ll also gain experience for killing the enemies which will eventually level you up. Here you can choose to increase one of three stats. The amount of damage you do, to potentially have to look for fewer words. Increase your health so you can take more hits or make the enemy have to wait longer to attack to buy yourself more time to think.
There are around 20 different enemies to face, ranging from lowly rats to ninjas over 4 different dungeons. So it sounds like there’s a lot of content to get through. Spell Caster is a free-to-play game so in terms of IAPs, you can purchase gems that allow you to get hints on what words there are.
You can also watch ads to do this as is common in quite a few mobile games. This can be effectively used to brute force your way through the entire game if you wanted to. But seeing as it’s a puzzle game I don’t see the point in that personally.
