Magic Carpet is a port of a PC title released in 1994 and includes the 20 additional levels found in Magic Carpet: The Hidden Worlds. There are a total of 70 levels in all. You play the part of a wizard's apprentice who must restore equilibrium to the world.
As the title suggests, players are given the opportunity to fly on a carpet. Collect magical powers by shooting the balls (mana) that are floating throughout each world. Shooting each ball will result in them changing to your color (white). Then, let your hot air balloons pick them up and bring them to your castle before the other wizards get to your mana and change it to their color. That's the main objective of the game.
So where does the mana come from? Well, all of the 13 different beasts that fly or walk around in each of the worlds contain a certain amount of it. When they are destroyed it's released. You complete a world when a predetermined amount of mana is stored in your castle. The more mana that is collected, the more spells you have access to, a maximum of 20 different spells can be found in the game. ~ Chris Broesder, All Game Guide
