The Story

You play the part of Mercure the Mage who must venture forth into the ravenous beasts evil lair, full of spiders, bats, rats, goblins and trolls, and recover the magical swirls which were stolen from Stone Circle earlier that morning whilst you were busy meditating.

The Game

Mage Rage is a top down maze shooter for the ZX Spectrum in the same vein as The Halls of the Things. You must wander the area killing or avoiding various creatures whilst on the look out for the stolen magical swirls. The lair also handily contains pressure pads to open doors, wizard bolt refills and life energy which will all help to keep you alive. Once the swirls have all been recovered you must make your way back to where you left your trusty steed to escape

The Controls

Q-Up, A-Down, O-Left, P-Right and Space-Fire Bolt


Mercure the Mage, Spiders, Bats, Rats, Goblins, Trolls, Respawn Zones, Wizard Bolts, Life Energy, Pressure Pads, Forest, Bridges, Mazes, Castles, Ice, Bricks, Chasms, and much more....

Please note: Due to technical difficulties I was not able to add the fabulous Mage Rage loading screen to the actual load itself. However, it is included as a .png file which can be oggled at your leisure. I hope this doesn't spoil your enjoyment of the game too much. Sincere apologies.
