Wizard101 is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game created by KingsIsle Entertainment. Players take on the role of students of Wizardry to save the Spiral, the set of worlds in which the games is played, and battle a variety of creatures by casting spells using a turn-based combat system similar to collectible card games. Players advance in the game by accepting quests to learn new spells, gain equipment, and collect gold. The game holds a rating of “Everyone 10+ (E10+)” from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board for crude humor and mild fantasy violence. Although designed for its target audience of 8 to 14-year olds, the game appeals to all ages.
At the beginning the player controls a level 1 novice wizard, who is named by the player using a set of words at the start of the game. That wizard joins the Ravenwood School of Magical Arts, a school of wizardry located in a fictional town called Wizard City. Rather than the traditional character classes, Wizard101 allows players to choose one of seven schools of magic (Fire, Ice, Storm, Life, Death, Myth, and Balance) as their focus school. There are also Astral Schools of magic (Star, Sun, Moon), but these can only be learned as secondary schools at level 50 and higher. See Schools of Magic
In Wizard101, the Spiral is divided into several worlds, each of which has multiple areas. Upon character creation, only a part of Wizard City is opened to access. As the player progresses, more worlds become available. All but the first few areas require payment to access.
looks like a harry potter game by any other name..throw spells on people and rise through the ranks of the wizards..
