What is The Wizards about?
The Wizards is an award-winning action adventure with a unique system to create spells using gestures, narrated and spoken by the acclaimed Jason Marnocha.
Become a powerful wizard using powerful spells and protect Meliora! The Wizards is an acclaimed action adventure with a unique gesture-based spell system designed for PlayStation Move motion controllers. After two years of hard work, the Enhanced Edition includes new content and mechanics to meet the needs of our players.
The Wizard is a kind of wave shooter with spells. As magicians we butcher our way through orcs, goblins and more. We use gesture control to shoot fireballs and lightning as well as to summon a shield or an ice bow. And I have to say, this works first class. The gestures are simple and intuitive. Throwing the fireball also works very well. As a little bonus the vibration possibility of the controllers was finally used again, which gives you a certain feedback when you hold a fireball in your hand. The graphics of the game makes a good impression, even if the maps are tube-like. A mixture of teleportation and free movement is used for locomotion. (of course, you can only teleport) We can upgrade our spells after a successful round and unlock new effects. In addition, we can play cards of fate. We use these to increase our score. We can strengthen or weaken opponents, which has an impact on the score. Both a global scoreboard and a personal high score serve as an incentive. I would have liked to have had a little more opportunities to interact with the world, but otherwise the game was a complete success. Magic works flawlessly, the graphics are good and I didn't have any bugs or game crashes either. The speaker is also doing a good job. Only the highscore of the leader in the list looks like a cheater, but the developer has already promised to fix it. Maybe a few more words would have been nice, but it's also so much fun.
