A powerful dark magic controls the cities of the Oblena region. To confront evil, you will carry a magical shield that will allow you to defend yourself, fight and surf through the red grassland. The tool will gradually grow in power and abilities!
Relive the feeling of old-school video games
We all have fond memories of those amazing classic 3D action adventure games. All those references have been used to bring back the old sensations to the present, but with updated graphics, improved controls and a better gaming experience.
