Magicka has been out for a few years now but if you like coop games, and destroying your friends “on accident”, you’ll want to be sure and grab this one.
Set in a generic fantasy world Magicka is something like an ARPG (action RPG) where you take on the role of a wizard and are tasked with defeating evil. Yep, that’s as good as it gets right there. The game is very tongue-in-cheek and takes stabs at all the classic fantasy troupes while still providing excellent gameplay.
This is where the game really shines as you are given a number of spells that you can cast on your enemies, or these can be combined to form all new spells. But the enemy isn’t the only one that has to watch out because your friends are also in danger if they happen to be caught in the line of fire. Much frustration and hilarity can ensue when you charge up a particularly nasty attack only to have your friend get fried instead. Oops.
You can get the base game for dirt cheap right now, a whole $2.49, or grab the full collection for $8.74. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
