In the game Jacksmith, you take on the role of a blacksmith and are tasked with forging a variety of weapons for each of your characters to use in battle. Every step of the manufacturing process for weapons must be performed by hand. Before you can melt it, pour it, construct it, or design it, you must first choose the ore you will use and then the mold you will use. It doesn't matter if you're forging swords, bows, arrows, axes, or any other kind of weapon; in order to fashion the perfect one, you'll need to have the appropriate expertise and approach. As soon as you have finished construction, it is time to gather your band of warriors together and engage in combat. While you search for treasure and man the cannons while they engage in battle, you continue to make progress toward the Great Wizard Dudley.
