This game is really good for a shareware game, and even though I’m writing this review, I’m going to go play it again. It’s just that good.

The gameplay is simple enough. You can either move the wizards with the mouse, or the keyboard. One thing about the gameplay though is how it can get confusing as to which key to press when you want to make your wizards rotate. This caused me to die quite a few times, but it’s all good.

The graphics are pretty awesome, and the wizards move fluently, even if there is a lot else going on the screen at the same time. This is good, as a lot of games I’ve played tend to lag if too much is going on, but this seems to not be the case. The sound is awesome as well, whether it be the sound the T-Rex makes, or the voices of the wizards and their spells. The music is awesome, and is quite catchy at times.

The extensiveness of the levels (50, each one brain wracking yet fun) provides a good deal of time to play, and the fact that you can choose your level from the start is pretty nifty. The last level isn’t terribly hard, however if you just jump into it without doing anything else, you’re liable to fail many, many times. The tips shown at the beginning of each level are helpful, but at other times they’re annoying.

All in all, this game rocks. The Full version can be downloaded here: http://www.questengine.com/ for $19.95.

Overall Rating: 8.00
