Magicka - Wizards of the Square Tablet

Magicka – Wizards of the Square Tablet is now available on Android and iOS tablets, and promises co-op gaming as well as lots of action and fun.

The tablet edition of the PC game that gained quite a following in the past couple of years is now available in the Google Play Store, for $1.99. “Tablet edition” may not be the best words to describe it, since this is a totally different game, with 2D graphics, but one that keeps quite a few elements from the title that inspired it.

As you would expect,¬†Magicka – Wizards of the Square Tablet does offer the possibility to combine spells in a lot of ways, and it doesn’t lack the trademark humor. The most interesting thing is probably the fact that the game, available for Android and iOS platforms, offers co-op playing for up to four players, and it will work across platforms. You can get a pretty good idea of what it looks like in the trailer below.

The reactions from fans of the franchise have already appeared on the Google Play Store page, and, while they’re very good, a list of supported devices, (hopefully, not as short as the one for Oil Rush 3D), would be a very good idea. At the moment,¬†Magicka – Wizards of the Square Tablet looks like can’t be played by Google Nexus 7 users (like the author of this article).
