Exile is a hybrid action/role-playing game. Travel and exploration occurs in the traditional overhead view of RPGs, while the battles and dungeons are side-scrolling mazes, gain experience and levels, buy equipment, and use magic.
In this arcade/RPG game you're a young wizard on a quest to find your mentor, who has disappeared suddenly.
