Evil Wizard is an action RPG that has a dollop of Metroidvania smothered over the top. Going for a fast-paced combat-heavy affair Evil Wizard plays a lot like other games in the series but it then adds in the elements like fire and electricity and with this you get a new stable of attacks and ways to navigate the world. You have a central hub that allows you to plot your own course through the world whilst also displaying all found rubber ducks. It’s a fast-paced enslaught that does delight but it also frustrates with its limited variety and over-the-top humor and in your faces way too many easter eggs and references.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
