Two youngsters, Pyros and Erika, unexpectedly strayed into a wonderland called Wardner's Forest. Upon entering the magical forest, the young girl was changed into a crystal ball by an evil warlock called 'Wardner', the ruler of the forest, and brought to a secret place deep inside the woods. The brave young Pyros armed with only a magic flame as a weapon sets out to rescue his female companion from the clutches of the evil Wardner and bring her safely home. Join him in his adventurous search through the magical forest to save his friend and to break Wardner's spell over the enchanted forest and all the inhabitants.
