Indeed I am Hagrid! This brings us to our second review for the week!
Magicka is a third-person adventure game that has taken inspiration from Warcraft, War-Hammer and also Diablo, with a bit of comedy thrown into it, makes it a really fun game to play!
Magicka was created by Paradox Interactive and was thrown into the deep-end in 2011 as an RPG/Adventure game which stunned critics at the praise that it has recieved, that said it has already released an expansion called; Magicka - Vietnam.
The plot of the game is about a tale of 4 mages of a "Sacred Order" that are seeking revenge against an evil sorcerer and his allies. Pretty basic, yeah. What's weird is after a level you end up with a M60 and then you think to yourself, is this really happening? Well. Yeah it is.
The campaign to Magicka consists of 13 levels which slowly become filled with turmoil as the "Evil Sorcerer" wreaks havoc whenever he can. The character that you play, or up to four characters in co-operative mode has a Magical Staff that makes your spells consume no mana, which means you don't have to worry about not casting a spell. As you progress further into the game, you unlock extra spells which aid you in your quest to kill the Evil Sorcerer, one includes sprinting, healing, shielding yourself. And alot more.
As many spells go, each has their strengths and their weaknesses. The basics which carry through many games consist of Water beats Fire, Fire beats Grass, Grass beats Water. Etc. Etc. You can chain-combo abilities for extra damage as there is over 3000 spells that can be casted within the game, each doing different abilities and damage.
In order to move your character, you hold down your mouse and move it in the direction that you are facing in.
To cast spells, you push QWERASDF, each has it's own unique spell type, you can cast a variety of spells and have it's own unique effect.
Magicka is available on Steam for $10.00 http://store.steampowered.com/app/42910/ and.. I don't think you can purchase it anywhere else. It's a great game that has good multiplayer and replay value.
Thanks once again! Unityx.
