About the Game

In a world of wizardry, wonder and untold mystery, you must undertake some of the most diverse quests to hone your skills in spell casting, weaponry and melee combat. Your martial skills are soon put to the test as demonic monsters descend upon Avencast, turning the academy into a state of chaos and destruction.

Armed with countless combat moves and spells, and a vast arsenal of equipment you must uncover the source of this evil by vanquishing an onslaught of enemies. Treachery and deceit reveal themselves as the vicious army threatens Avencast’s very existence. Amidst the mayhem, an astonishing truth unfolds which will forever change the battle scarred Wizard.

  • Avencast’s unique and innovative combat system favors skillful gameplay over dull mouse clicking. Chain together spells and execute lethal attacks. Unleash your hero’s potential as you bring your own player skills to each intense battle!
  • An exciting combination of dynamic action, adventure and traditional role-playing.
  • Captivating visuals and dazzling special effects accompany you into a world where magic truly rules the day.
  • While strength and agility will win most battles, wisdom and strategic thinking are necessary to survive Avencast’s challenging quests.
  • Choose the magic that suits you best: melee-oriented blood magic or far ranged soul magic, or an explosive cocktail of both!
  • Hordes of nightmarish monsters, each with their own diverse skills and combat strategies that adapt to your behavior.
  • Acquire new equipment, armor, weapons and spell casting skills to craft a powerful character.

Avencast is an 'honest' game. The story is a little cliche, the plot is quite simple the visuals and sounds are a little dated. I received Avencast for free during a promotion and was not expecting much. I was actually impressed with the gameplay. Avencast focuses on spellcasting and there are two main types of magic (blood and soul). Both have some cool spells with nice visual effects. Casting relies on keyboard combos (similar to Magicka) to cast spells and execute attacks. The combat can get a little repetitive towards the end of the game and the quests aren't particularly original, but the environments are varied and there are a range of enemies. If you're after a simple action RPG where you can just spend a few hours blasting enemies into oblivion with cool spells, Avencast is exactly the right game. That's why it's honest, and that's why it's fun to play through.

It's a solid game, but the RPG elements are really lacking. It's more of an action adventure with a strong emphasis on quests. Would I recommend it as an RPG? No. Would I recommend it as an action adventure? Yes. It's not like Diablo and it focusses a lot on evading enemy attacks while trying to hit them. Think of it as the bullethell of RPGs ;)

The game was pretty good. Combat mechanics could've been better but the story was pretty solid. I suggest you buy this game only on a cheap sale.

+ It's FUN to use magic. You combine a keyboard with mouse to spell cast. And if you don't want to have fun, you can add spells to action bar.
+ It's FUN to explore - there is plenty of stuff to be find!
+ It's does feel like you are playing RPG game
+/- Camera - some people find it annoying and buggy, but i haven't got any issues with it. If you will manage to learn how to set it, you won't need any mods.
+/- Graphics - it's game from 2007, and it does look great for it's time. No need to compare it to other games, every game have own unique style.
- Metascore - if you want to know if game is worth your time, then read user reviews, not critic ones. They are much more useful. It's always better to read about a game from other gamers than an incompetent magazine reviewer, isn't it? 68/100 isn't a bad score, but nowadays only the highest, like 80-85+ are counting as good game while other not. Sad but true.

I'd recommend for sure this game to RPG fans, other people may check demo version (if avaible) or hunt for it on sales.

Welcome to Roll-Dodge: The Game.

It's not a great game.
But it's funny as hell to play, and the cutscenes will make you giggle just cuz they're so cliche or take themselves far far too seriously ("Behold as even now the daemon's curse PENETRATES MY BODY.")

If you can nab it at a very very low price, nab it, else... eh.

12 roll-dodges out of 7.
