Aspetra is a console-style RPG for the PC. At the beginning of the game, the protagonist arrives at the top of a mountain via a cloud; allegedly a wizard sent him, but the character has little recollection of facts and events. The character is named by the player through a conversation with an early NPC, who sets him on a quest involving wizardry, swordplay, and adventure.
The character is moved about with the arrow keys and can interact with objects and people. Most items can be either equipped or consumed.
