About This Game

Magic is not an art or religion. Magic is a craft.

Experience an amazing and unforgettable adventure set in a dark fantasy universe!

Spellcrafter is an RPG game with deep tactical turn-based combat and a unique spell casting system. Explore the magical world, collect gold, interact with NPCs, take quests and make moral choices! Recruit heroes, assemble and summon powerful troops and send them into battle!

The unique feature of Spellcrafter is the spell casting system. The game recognizes the sign you draw on the screen and automatically chooses the appropriate spell from the spellbook. If you don’t remember the correct sign you are able to consult the spellbook, but beware! Reaching for the spellbook takes additional time and the quicker you cast your spell, the more powerful it will be!



The game is divided into 3 acts. Each act tells a part of a compelling and magical story about the nature of reality, power and morality. Additionally, each act features 3 levels with a different setting and a different playable character (human, necromancer, elf).

Early Access Review
Whilst the game is fun it lacks a lot of depth and user-friendliness,
therefore I can unfortunately not recommend it.

I have made a first impression with visuals on my channel:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWfcOOgm7Ew&list=PL-PnryklJxure7y8-EAJoA53bP25nmbp3

-The game suffers from its mobile version.
Its UI is barely improved upon and still has redundant buttons for the mobile version.
Tooltips are not present anywhere in the game and leaves the player clueless as to what certain upgrades or attacks do.

-The player is given little time in battles.
The time bar makes sense for the drawing of spells because the quicker you draw, the more damage you do, but keeps running the entirety of the battle.
In short the game pushes players in making hasty decisions which prevents players from applying strategy in battle.

-Unit placement is almost completely useless as you will always be limited to 3 moveable characters per at the very most.
Recruiting more units of a single type stacks them, but it would make a lot more sense if units were placed seperately so you could actually block off attacks aimed at ranged units with melee units for instance.

-There's a serious lack of combat modifiers and/or lack of visibility. As far as I can tell all units have the same effectiveness against each other unit. Enemy units that are stationed near fences appear to get a bonus against ranged attacks regardless of their position towards the archer. Let's say an enemy's flanks are exposed and you were to use your archers, you would still do little damage as they're considered protected by adjacent fences.

TL;DR
The game suffers from Mobile platform's limitations and is barely suited to PC.


Again the game is fun and I quite like the magic system even though it could use more depth. It would be great if you could practice spells whilst not in battle. The game has its merits but as long as these issues are not addressed I couldn't in good conscience recommend this game. An added option of saving the game and having save games wouldn't be to shavy either.

Incredibly bad.
Got stuck in the first baYou get taken to the game start screen, select the first spell to fire, and the game says: "Draw this on your screen" under a dancing arrow that points to a graphic of a wall.
Um... am I supposed to get a sketchpen? The keypad doesn't work, left-click and right-click don't work.... major problems. What is a dancing arrow supposed to mean exactly?
There's no in-game help accessible, and no idea how to get to the controls. I had to use Ctrl+Alt+Del to exit. This happened within the first 30 seconds of gameplay.
Don't know how good the actual game is since I never got past the skeleton.
Don't buy this. Seriously, just don't.

This game is unpolished, buggy and terrible. "Deep tactical turn based combat": Nope, it's as shallow as it could be. If you do decide to try this game after noticing all the negative reviews, get ready to handle a clunky UI with unresponsive controls. 0/10, don't get close to this game even if it's on sale.

This game is a waste of money. It was not fun or interesting to play. It is very simplistic and not well executed. I bought this on sale and still feel cheated.
