Magicka for iPad is a fun port of its PC counterpart

Cassandra Khaw | May 2, 2013
The original Magicka, Arrowhead Studios' inaugural release for Windows PCs, was--for a while--the best possible excuse for killing your friends. It is a comical action-adventure game that features full-out friendly fire, a gaggle of wizards, a surprisingly robust spell system that allowed you to mix and match elements at will, and more downloadable content that you could ever shake a stick at.

Bottom line

Nitty-gritty details aside, is Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet fun? Absolutely. There's an abundance of enemies to plow through, many of which come with their own distinct set of strengths and weaknesses. Though the action never gets quite as frantic as it does in the franchise's progenitor, it can occasionally get overwhelming, even as you get assaulted from both sides of the map. Broken into stages and the occasional challenge, Magicka is ridiculous, rowdy, and wickedly funny from time to time. Get it, and make your friends get it.
