The evil sorcerer Val’Gor plans to use his dark powers to change and conquer
the world, introducing small and subtle changes to it until everything is

_Val’Gor: Dark Lord of Magic_ is a spot-the-differences game, where most of
the time the player has to find all the divergences between two similar

completing a word search challenge to win some extra minutes. If the player
fails again, the chapter is reset and all the pictures have to be completed
from the start.
The game gives extra time and bonus points when finding several changes
consecutively. If the player finds three changes at the start of one of the
pictures, the game awards an extra hint and bonus points. The hint coins at
the bottom of the screen circle automatically one of the changes when clicked.
Some areas randomly glint to indicate the existence of a nearby difference. At
the end of each chapter, a bonus matching game has to be completed where the
player must click on pairs of identical objects.
Some pictures have other challenges, where one of the photos has to be
reassembled from jumbled square pieces before starting to look for the
