Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet is an adventure game featuring a cast spelling system released by Paradox Interactive. Now it’s available on iPad or Android tablets. It will be most attractive to those dreaming of being an omnipotent wizard.
The story of Magicka is simple, straightforward and interesting as well. A group of wizards who have been living happily in a beautiful and peaceful land suffered a misfortune and thus they have to embark on a dangerous journey to save their destiny. Yes, you or you and your friends can be the wizard(s). The only way to defeat all the monsters standing in your way is to cast a spell with your wand. In it, magic exists and works. In light of this, the game is recommended for gamers at different ages to play. Imagine you are Harry Potter and now it’s time for you to fulfill your mission, alone or teaming up with your partners!
Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet features a narration with a “suave” accent throughout the whole gaming process to enlighten you of the risky journey and provides two difficulty levels: Normal and Hard. The game calls for the integration of response, speed and wisdom of the player and cooperation as well in the multi-player mode. As a wizard, you are provided with 7 elements: Earth, Fire, Cold, Life, Lightning, Water and Shield. Each can be used to cast a spell to produce corresponding power. Alternatively, you can combine two, three or four (to the maximum) of them to inflict larger damage to the enemies. For instance, Fire + Lightning + Lightning + Fire generate a thunder bolt. As a matter of fact, there are thousands of spell variations as long as you give full play to your imagination. One thing you need to keep in mind is that some opposing elements cannot be combined, such as Lightning-Earth, Lightning-Water and Fire-Cold. Element Life is extremely crucial. You have to grasp every opportunity to heal yourself with it during a fight against the enemies.
As an old Chinese saying goes, the key to victory is to “know your enemy and know yourself”. Different enemies feature different strengths and shortcomings. During your adventure, you may encounter Archer Goblin, Bomber Goblin, Bad Porc, Chompadile, Walking Dead, Ghost, Earth Elemetal, to just name a few. Take Earth Elemetal as an example, it’s immune to Earth while weak to lightning, which means casting Lightning spell will do nothing but to waste your precious time. Casting spells based on such knowledge helps you attack more effectively.
Generally, your path is stretching forward in a line. But enemies could appear both in front and from behind. At this time you have to touch, tap, poke, and force your way out of the dense enemies that keep flooding in. When threatened from both sides, you have to think fast in a short time and make an effective strategy based on the various enemies’ features. Moreover, your fingers must follow your brain. You have to strike counterattacks instantly. The operation is quite simple: you press one or more of the elements listed at the bottom of the screen and then press on your target to materialize the spell. If you’re unfortunately killed in a bloody battle, you can always resume it from the point where it stops. Each time you win a battle, you’ll get certain rewards, which can be used to unlock new powers.
To avoid depriving you of the fun of immersing in it as a powerful wizard, here I’d like to restrain myself from further spoilers. Are you wondering what will happen when Earth and Fire are combined? What’s the most powerful spell can be applied when confronting a strong vicious monster? Just come and experience yourself! A fantasy world is waiting for you to explore!
