Magicka is all about its combat. Everyone plays as a wizard with identical abilities, but playstyle is everything.
The main premise is that you can mix and match your own spells on the fly to perform whatever specific function you need at the time. There are eight magical elements that can be mixed in any quantity and ratio to combine for various spell effects.
Players can play alone or online in public or LAN servers.
It is important to note that Vlad is not a Vampire.
