The plot starts with alphabets written in squares and the name comes up as Mind Castle - The spell of the word wizard. Well, the game starts telling about an incident that occurred seven years back where Smith, a young man, enters the castle while excavating the countryside just for fun. He holds no idea that the castle was the home of the wizard. He thought it to be an abandoned place. It took no time for the wizard to notice Smith. He says that he was performing the transmogrification spell when Smith entered the castle. Thus he transforms Smith into a frog.
The second part of the game starts where you have entered the castle and the wizard is not at all happy to see you. He brackets a word and asks you to choose the righteous synonym of the same. When you guess it right you gain the portal. Thus there are more such types of puzzles asked by the wizard. And you need to answer the same correctly. As you answer the question, you won your freedom. And escape from the hand of the wizard.
Mind Castle is an incredible game for all ages. With excellent graphic work, this game is certainly very engaging. You need to try it out.
