Summary

A decent little game that is a good warm-up game before a session on something else. Playing as a quick arena brawler with magic spells, The game is fast and fun as you try and knock each other off the map or kill them. Every game feels different but you soon get fatigued with certain magic combos that allow players to dominate, No tutorial or practice means the first few matches will be an infuriating ride. But it is free so you cant really lose on this one.

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!
