Ikenfell is a turn based role play game where you use timing to power spells and block attacks. You explore the twisted halls of a vast magic school, a bit like Harry Potter, fight monsters and uncover hidden treasure and dark secrets.

The game has super simple visuals and an emphasis on inventive interactions. With this it tells a heartwarming story about friendship, trust, love and loss. You choose three wizard students in battle, from a total of six, each with unique powers and strengths. They can learn up to 48 unique spells: blast your enemies, knock them back, poison them, or heal and buff your allies.

Each spell has to be learnt and has its own timing you need to master. With 100's of enemies you need to have a good knowledge of different attacks and defences to survive. There are loads of items to find that will help you: wands, hats, cloaks, rings, and magical artefacts.
