Author's Description: A remake of the classic spectrum game 'Chaos': A multi player, turn based, fantasy war game. Each player takes on the role of a wizard and attempts to kill the other wizards by casting spells or summoning creatures to attack them. Wizards start off with a random selection of spells and must use them strategically to win. Some spells can be used to make the wizard more powerful by giving him magical armour or weapons. Others directly attack other wizards or creatures while a large number summon creatures to fight for the wizard. The creatures summoned all have various abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Some can move quickly or even fly across the battle field, others are strong or tough in combat.
