Arcanists

Guest Post By Woof

Ok, so I’m kinda abandoning the Nintendo with Woof for now, its too restricting.

(Logo Copyrighted by Jagex)
(Click here to go to the game.)

The reason I’m reviewing an online game is because its free to play and also highly addictive.

The controls are very easy to remember:

Move Left: Z

Move Right: X

Jump High: BackSpace

Jump Sideways: Enter

Switch Control: C/N

Skip Turn: Q

Menu:Esc

The gameplay resembles “Worms” in many ways. The aim is to attack your opponents with a range of spells (which I’ll come to later) and lower their health to zero. Falling into the water isn’t lethal but you lose some health.

Now, Most spells require membership (£2 a month, $4 a month appx.) but free players get two free spellbooks (22 Spells) to choose from.

Another cool thing is that if you have a Runescape account, you can use it to play because the owners of Runescape also make this game!

The game doesn’t have any 1 player so it’s all multiplayer, which could be a problem some, but you can easily turn off the chat feature if your parents are concerned.

And finally, I thought I’d go into detail about the free spells;

Book Of Arcane

Arcane Arrow: Fires 3 homing arrows, select the target and then launch.

Arcane Bomb:Very similar to the Arcane Arrow except you don’t launch it you throw it as a bomb first.

Arcane Tower: A tower that gives you added health. Can be charged up with arcane to have more health.

Arcane Energiser: Powers up Arcane attacks for 5 turns

Arcane Gate: Teleports you anywhere on the map.

Arcane Portal: Creates 2 portals, 1 above you and 1 anywhere you like.

Summon Imps: Creates 3 imps which are powered up by Arcane energy.

Imp Destruction: All imps explode into Arcane Arrows.

Arcane Glyph: Creates a shield that damages if touched.

Arcane Sigil: Creates 3 glyphs, often used to block paths.

Arcane Flash: Makes a flash that knocks enemies far.

Arcane Zero Shield:Prevents damaging spells from being used on the first turn. Users often criticised for being noobs.

Book of Flame

Fire Ball: Basic attack, Aim, Fire, Burn.

Fire Arrow: Like Arcane arrow but with more fire.

Lava Bomb: Again like Arcane Bomb, but with no Arcane.

Magma Bomb: Like Lava bomb except it releases more powerful mini-bombs.

Flame Shield: Deflects a lot of different attacks. Moves with you.

Flame Wall: Like flame shield, except its placed on the ground and if touched with damage you.

Napalm: Fires napalm that lays on the ground for 5 turns and will damage and confuse if touched. (Confused means you can’t move)

Napalm Bomb: Like lava bomb, but it releases napalm.

Rain of Fire: Fire balls are dropped Air-Strike style.

Rain of Arrows: Like Rain of Fire but more accurate and more powerful.

Remember if you want more info, just comment! If you want to arrange a game, I’m called dmccol6!

Review’d,

Woof 😉

    This review is more of a guide than a review, just like Lego’s Powder Game Post.

    Hi! Legoless! It’s me! Pengiione! I was thinking… do you want to link-trade? Like I post about your blog and you post about mine? I don’t mind if you don’t…. just an idea.
    legoless: I think that’s against WordPress’s Terms….. and it sure won’t help my Google reputation.

    Which brings me to telling you that Arcanists is all snowy now. And if you have enough OrbCoins you can buy new outfits.

    oh wait, there is a difference between these season thingos aren’t there…
    legoless: Yeah. It’s because of your location. The Southern Hemisphere’s Seasons are always opposite to the Northern’s. So while it Summer where you live, it’s Winter in Europe, Canada, most of the US and most of Asia. (And probably other places I haven’t cared to list.)

    Heres another guide for you (Members first)

    First, get full nature and put all in spell book,
    Second, either mud ball or flower bomb your opponent,
    Third, put your familiar to level 5,
    Fourth, throw the bomb that fills the inside of the ground with nature balls, (forgotten the name) – Do this twice
    Last, use blast from the past on the mud/flowers where the nature balls inside the ground are and – KABOOM!!

    Non-members:

    First, summon imps on top of your enemy,
    (If he teleports put imps on hit again)
    Second, keep using arcane arrow on imps and enemy,
    Last, when one of the imps has more hp than your enemy, run away and explode ur imp right next to your enemy!

    I hope this helps if your new, anyway GL to all =]
