Primaeval adopts a tactical real time physics based melee combat system with wide range of attacks and moves, the player has a full control of his character, both successful and failure attacks have their respective consequences. in addition, the game features several types of weapons each with it's own play style.

The magic system is a symbol based system and heavily relies on player's memory , a magic spell may be represented by one or more symbols written on magic scrolls. During combat, the player has to remember the correct symbol that represents the spell he wishes to cast and draw it quickly to activate the spell, otherwise the player will need to reopen the scroll and waist a precious time.


The AI is designed to be challenging and merciless, a horde of enemies wont' tackle the player one by one but instead they'll attack together whenever it's possible and it's the player's job to tactically choose the best gameplay style to deal with this situation depending on his current equipments and weapons.

With many logical and mechanical puzzles designed to tease the player's brain and sometimes frustrate him! Read more...
