Seriously, the game's instructions are terrible. The tutorial and magic spells are all displayed with pictures that don't make much sense without context.
As far as I could tell, each race gets 3 different spells, one powered by fire mana, one by water mana, and one by plant mana. Matching mana charges your spells and they automatically fire after being fully charged (one of my spells made a wild mana tile which was annoying because if it didn't spawn in the right spot it was free for my opponent to use).
Frankly, I would be really surprised if anybody felt compelled to buy this after playing the free version. At its best, there's it's pretty polished. The problem is that the polish is really inconsistent. The gameplay is a big miss for me. It's slow-paced, repetitive, lacking in strategy, and poorly explained.
