Along the way, he runs into some totally gruesome monsters, who come after him with some pretty heavy magic. Luckily, he's got a few tricks of his own: magic boomerangs, electric shock claws, shooting stars, even telepathy.

Most excellent, Dude!

Jake is the apprentice of Zed, a master magician. While preparing for his training. Jake is maliciously attacked by unknown assailants! While fighting off the attackers, Lisa, his girlfriend, is kidnapped, so Jake heads to the underworld to win her back!

Of course, Jake is not defenseless either. He has a powerful assortment of magic at his disposal, including magic that can transform Jake into different man-animals! He has mastered the art of elemental mysticism and can control fire, water, air, and earth spells.

As Jake Completes each level and destroys more enemies, his magics become more and more intense, then again, so do the enemies! Certain magics only work when Jake is himself, so plan your strategies carefully.
