Magicka is a 3D action adventure game based with an isometric camera perspective.
The story is loosely based upon Norse Mythos, heavy Norse Mythos elements re used into its structure with some Cthulhu Mythos and the Vietnam War scenarios in the game’s progression as well.
The setting of the game is like this, there is a very evil force that has just breached inside your world and has brought chaos to everyone and everything and now it's up to you to put an end to that dickdong’s mighty ego forever.
Simple premise, you say right, too simple, well one way or another, they all are and simplicity rules my friends but it’s the gaming experience that counts and the experience here is not bad!
Actually it’s pretty neat and good.
There are up to four wizards or mages that the player can choose from, so this is quite basically like playing any other magic and elves and wizards based adventure game that are available on the net like overgrown grass on your patio.
With very one major difference between it and the others, that you do not need to focus on the mages’ character class structure and build up, plus there is no mana bar, meaning you can cast the magic nonstop!
Plus no need to gather the myriads of power up items just go out there in the big bad mythical world and hand out elemental punishment upon whoever you frown funny at.
The battle is solely based upon magic attacks, there are your elementals, like fire, ice, water, earth, air and their various steadily threatening forms then there are some other magic spells out there contained in spell books and they all bestow you great skills like teleportation and time warp and such.
The gaming experience while progressing along the jungles and temples and mountains and castles and villages and what not is superb and makes you wonder what will I face next?
There could be bandits ahead taking rest or some one may come yelling for your help.
It’s just your very own personal and private small piece of a Lord of the rings like saga, minus the bullshittery!
Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and published Paradox interactive for PC it was released in January 2011.
