The Magician's Handbook for Android, Gamer's Intuition review

The Magician's Handbook: Cursed Valley could have actually been a better game if the frustration factor was turned down a notch. Yes, object-finding games are supposed to be challenging but trying to find objects on the list that aren't even spelled correctly is another challenge on its own! I roamed around a particular scene looking for a "cantelope" (how do you pronounce that anyway, kan-tell-oh-pee?), which I wasn't sure if they meant the melon-like fruit or something else. I even used a dictionary to see if this was some word unknown to me. Eventually, and through repetitive erratic tapping, I discovered that this "cantelope" was one of the brownish pumpkin-like oval things... Ok, so I type like crap frequently too, especially when tired, but at least I have the common sense to use a spellchecker when I write something for publication! To discover "typos" on a game that's already been released on PC, Mac and two other mobile platforms (iOS, Kindle) is just sad - not to mention disorienting. Having to guess what certain objects on the list actually are instead of WHERE they are is not fun. (Android, Casual games) -
