Elements of Arkandia is a hybrid RPG/puzzle developed by Undefined and published by Kongregate on June 8, 2011. It involves running your very own shop in a medieval fantasy world and going out on adventures to earn gold to keep the shop open.


Elements of Arkandia has a few different sections you can interact with in different ways. The primary section is the Adventures section, where you go to fight legions of enemies so you can bring home gold and treasures for your shop. The Adventures contain a set of levels, each one more difficult than the last. Each level has you fight enemies by interfacing with a board full of gems for you to make 3-way matches with. You get two turns to make matches before the enemy gets a turn to either attack you or cast one of their spells, but you can get an extra turn by matching four or five gems together instead of three. The majority of these gems are elemental gems that give you mana that's used for casting spells, but there are also other types of gems you can match as well, such as gold coins which give you coins and rage gems which give you the energy to attack your enemies with your equipped weapon.

The Spellbook contains all the elemental spells that you can select to bring into battle with you. You start out with only five available, but can unlock more as you progress in the game. The Armory lets you outfit your character with different types of equipment, including armors, weapons, and other accessories. The Shopping section lets you buy upgrades for you and your shop. The Your Shop section is where you go to run your shop; you can put items you've found during your adventures on sale, and then open the shop to earn gold as people buy your items.

On top of all these features, if you choose to play normal mode, there is also a loan for 30,000 gold left by your father who had to borrow the gold to go on a journey of his own; the loan accumulates interest every day (one day passes every time you go on an Adventure or open your shop), so make sure to spend gold to pay some of the loan off as often as you can. Or, you can choose to play in Debt Free mode when starting a new game to bypass the loan entirely.
