Matching game. Magic Shop transfers players to the era of mystery, magic, spells and artefacts. At that period there lived a wise elf, named Loriel, who founded a shop, where he created magic artifacts using unique spells. You are supposed to be the follower of Loriel to master his magic and become the owner of the magic shop. Different guests visit your shop to get artifacts and your task is to collect the required number of magic elements, necessary for the artifact creation. You collect the magic elements by clicking on groups of three or more items of the same kind. You need to act quickly because the guests become impatient with time, their mood worsens and you earn fewer points accordingly. Though, you can raise guests' mood by using magic potions. As you advance through the game, various power-ups and obstacles emerge making game play much interesting. Valuable rubies appear on the game board periodically, you should pick them up to buy new artefacts and the magic potions in the hall of artifacts. There are also bonus rounds that challenge you to match pairs of cards thus earning crystals. If you earn enough crystals, you may invite one of the most powerful wizards to help you in the shop. More than that, as you play well, you rise in rank and earn original trophies, which are displayed in the trophy room.
