PC Gamer: Magicka Preview

In this age of cheap-seat one-button brawlers, of grandma-can-play-too wand-wagglers, of full-body familyoriented frivolities, it’s almost a relief to come across a game which favours an abrupt learning curve.

Though it looks and quacks like a comedy Diablo-clone, Magicka is underpinned by an intimidating set of key bindings. Here, the only class in town is wizard, and the letters resting beneath your left hand represent different magical elements which can be combined into spells, before being cast on yourself, allies, enemies or the environment with a press of the spacebar or a mouse button.

The story is too old to be commented.
