An interesting blend of tactics and flight elements
Magic Carpet was released by Bullfrog, from founder Peter Molyneux who had always looked to advance new ideas into gaming, and so, it comes as no surprise that this game is both innovative and fun to play. You will play the role of a magic carpet rider, and you will have to do battle with a lot of other sorcerers. In order to succeed, you will have to carefully select the combination of spells to use while at the same time keeping your manna counter full. The game has nice graphics for its time, but you might want to try the later released version, Magic Carpet Deluxe, who ironed out some of the bugs of this version while also diversifying the spell pool while also sharpening a bit the graphics. The game is also interesting to play if you want an interesting arcade flight sim that isn't necessarily very hard to control, in which your main task is doing battle with a good dose of tactics. Overall, however, the game is worth to download and play again!
