SOE's Crescent Pale Mist is a side-scrolling 2.5D action game that casts you as a magician named Yunou, who enters the dimension of Gasyukal to battle witches, possessed suits of armor and other foes. Success hinges on the use of her spells, as well as good old-fashioned button mashing. In addition, it’s in your best interest to complete each of the six levels as quickly as possible to climb the online leaderboards. At just $5.99, it’s a potential impulse buy, but prepare for lots of frustration caused by imprecise controls and cheap enemies.
