Incantation is a side-scrolling platformer exclusive to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

The game offers a power-up system that changes the projectiles shot out by boy wizard hero’s wand: some offer better damage while others expand the area of effect. In most respects the game is fairly straightforward – stages are played consecutively with no world map or branching paths – and was reviewed poorly by critics at the time, with exceptions made for the game’s high quality graphics.


Incantation is a game with an incredibly simple story: Play as a young boy wizard to defeat some evil.


The game is an action side-scroller set in a medieval fantasy world. The boy wizard protagonist carries a large wand that has different projectiles based upon what power-ups he has picked up. The goal of each level is to find three golden feathers to then pass a gate and fight a boss, thus ending the level.
