"By thy power of magick!"

A co-op magical beat'em-up

In a magical world where wizards look like half Jawas and half characters taken from Loom PC game, and everything with that aura games made in Flash have, you might expect an original storyline (isn't the case) but seldom an so much original gameplay (which indeed is the case). In a sentence, Magicka should be considered a sidescroller beat'em-up, much in the like of Knights of the Round or even Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, the mobile nature of the game slows its pace in comparison to its arcade ancestors, and adds a fresh new concept called "strategy" (keep it on mind) and an other not so new we'll call "friendly fire".

It might happen that you don't understand this review at all but feel the urge to download this game anyway.

The great essential thing about Magicka is that you can make use of any of the usual RPG elements tapping to "store" them and then releasing them onto whatever stands in your way or in your friends'. You can also fulminate them, and these kind of so-called accidents will make the difference between life and death. Most of all, when you have elements stored you can't move and you can combine different elements to create new spells both helpful or devastating.

In the meanwhile, you'll be entertained by a storyline about saving the universe or so, richly voiced in a strange gibberish fictitious language. Lastly, aside of the fun tutorial and the even more fun campaign, don't miss the chance to gather your friends, make them wear magi Parcheesi robes and invoke a mayhem of colorful spells and monsters.

Developer's original description available here
Magicka - Wizards of the Square Tablet: Now you can accidentally set your friends on fire from anywhere!

"Magicka Wizards of the Square Tablet is hands down my favorite game of the year so far, and it’s an Android game you need to own if you have a tablet"
- android-apps.com

"This is 2D brawling taken to the next level and the free-form magic system means you'll always have a novel way to dispatch the goons (and even friends) around you."
- AppSpy (5/5)

From the publisher that brought you Magicka, it’s more Magicka! Featuring the innovative and dynamic spellcasting system from the critically acclaimed PC hit, Wizards of the Square Tablet brings to your Android those lovable robed rascals from the popular RPG spoof. Now you can bring them with you wherever you go, in a brand new campaign set before the original tale of Magicka.

Touch, tap, poke, and prod your way through the new campaign by yourself, or “accidentally” obliterate your friends in multiplayer co-op, which supports up to four wizards! Play together with fellow mages across multiple platforms, which may co-exist in the same game session thanks to a twisted union made possible by dark sorcery!

Cast your spells across multiple levels, and unlock new powers unique to the mobile Magicka experience. Experience the humor and chaos of this satirical fantasy world, and don’t worry too much if your tablet isn't exactly a square!

Features:
* Combine elements to create thousands of spell combinations
* All-new campaign for single or multiplayer
* Cross-platform co-op
* 4-player mayhem with many “accidental” team-kills

    Games like this control much better with physical controls. Touch is sub-optimal.

    I bought 1,500 coins and the game took my money and didn't give me my coins. I would really like my money back or my coins.

    Firstly, sometimes it's impossible to exit the game with «back» button after playing a stage and quitting to main menu. Secondly, what's more annoying, buttons stay lightning during entire game (Galaxy Note 3, system version 4.3). In addition, needs a co
