About Wizard Rune 1

Set against a backdrop where a dark wizard has kidnapped the princess, players are called upon by the king to step forward and confront the evil magic menace. Wizard Rune 1 is an homage to the golden era of PC gaming, offering players a chance to traverse through exciting dungeons, mysterious wizard towers, and enchanting forests.

The game boasts a unique approach to turn-based RPGs. Every playthrough promises a different experience with randomized sets in each area and dungeon. This ensures players encounter different rooms, treasures, and bosses with each new game. The game also features nonlinear progression, allowing players to choose their own path, whether it’s diving into perilous dungeons or exploring the vast landscapes.

  • Dynamic Battles: Engage in both random overworld battles and touch-based area battles.
  • Expansive World: The game rewards exploration with secret magic, weapons, and items scattered throughout.
  • Party Dynamics: Each party member brings a unique play style and perspective, offering different insights and strategies for the journey.
  • Challenging Gameplay: Players will face powerful bosses, with some encounters offering non-violent resolutions.
