* All links lead to the English Demo (site language may be different) *
To have a quick overview of the controls at hand you will find a Quick Info page in the demo package. You can also download it here.
You might be inclined to create shortcut keys for your spells. This is fine. However, if you really want to rock'n'roll you will opt for the key combinations. Why? Because you never have to quit the movement keys and you can access all your spells at any time.
* Special Hint: Using shortcut keys comes in handy if you want to use a spell and its upgrade at the same time. Put the basic spell on a shortcut and execute the upgrade with your keys! *
You can choose between the novice control, the expert control and the follow camera mode. Many people might feel more comfortable with the novice control or the follow camera mode, especially in the beginning. The game was however originally designed for the expert control mode. This one is more difficult to get into at the beginning but allows for a lot faster movement control when combat starts getting hot.
The Old Demo
Make sure you do not mix up our old beta demo with the actual one! It might happen that you stumble upon a ~52MB file from June 2005. This is the ooooold beta demo. It is in fact a complete nice little game and some of you might fall in love with it. We love it, too, but it is NOT the actual demo!
