The Necromancer has imprisoned eight of the Great Sorcerers and his minions roam the land. You're the last free Sorcerer, your goal is to free your colleagues from the Necromancer's jails before it's too late.
Sorcery is an arcade-adventure game. The player must explore the game world (40 screens) and collect items to destroy the many monsters, open locked doors and free the other sorcerers. Contact with a monster drains energy, which can be replenished, and the game has a time limit represented by a gradually disappearing grimoire.
The game was used extensively in Amstrad commercial as a demonstration of the CPC's graphic capabilities.
