As you progress through the game the evil starts to make its presents known you'll have to use your magical spells to attack evil dragons that have taken over the skies above 'The Wizards Castle'. Aim carefully to destroy each segment of the monsters body before the castle is doomed. Collect extra health pickups as you avoid blasts from the traitorous Imps around the castle roof tops
