The Spells Menu

A place in the Spells Menu is reserved for each of the 24 spells to be found in Magic Carpet. A spell automatically homes in on the nearest aggressive target when cast (as long as the target is near the center of the screen), so the real trick is not aiming the spell but selecting the right one for the occasion. The 24 spells are:

possess accelerate (forward)

earthquake-crater lightning Bolt lightning Storm steal mana possess accelerate (forward)

Undead Army - Raise an army of red-cloaked skeletons to attack rival wizards, their castles and balloons.

Earthquake - Cast this spell to confound land-based monsters by opening a huge crevice under their feet. But don't waste your time trying to cast this spell in water.

Lightning Storm - Unleash a storm of white hot electricity, which shoots off in all directions and destroys everything within its radius.

Volcano - Creates a gigantic eruption of red hot lava from the bowels of the earth, destroying everything in the vicinity. An extra advantage of this spell are the periodic eruptions which inflict further damage.

Global Death - Sends out a shockwave that proves fatal to anything caught within its influence.

Spell Mana

When an occupied spell box is highlighted, a mana bar is revealed. A small white dot is added to the bar for every time the spell can be cast; the whole bar must be filled in grey before a dot is added. Some of the higher spells remain inactive in the spells menu until you have built up a large amount of mana in your castle.
