Beatshapers is no stranger to the PlayStation universe, as they’re known for bringing a unique mixture of hit indie titles over to the PS Mini service. With Tribute Games’ Wizorb, they’ve stirred up the nostalgia pot and formulated an RPG infused Arkanoid clone that’s sure to warm the hearts of old-school souls. If you’ve got the skills for the challenge and a few gold coins in your purse, the Kingdom of Gorudo is in need dire need of a saviour.
The boss battles themselves aren’t wildly entertaining, but the fact that they exist at all in a brickbreaking game is interesting enough. The game as a whole doesn’t quite reinvent the wheel like, say, Shatter, but it’s nowhere near as poor of an effort as, say, Ricochet HD. Some of the levels are more annoying than difficult, and even playing to the extent of collecting the four Sacred Children (the little amount of replay value in the game) doesn’t last for too long. Considering the graphical style and the main village layout of the game, I expected and hoped for more RPG elements to pop-up here and there. As is, it’s a great mixture of the two genres, with the focus definitely being on brickbreaking. WizOrb is the best game of its kind on the Minis platform, which may not be saying much. Then again, it’s the best brickbreaker I’ve played since Shatter, which is saying quite a lot.
Still, despite the monotony at times, Wizorb did keep me glued to the PSP. As far as Breakout/Arkanoid-type games go, I would say it’s not quite as good as BreakQuest or Bashi Blocks, but much better than the others. And its overall design is quite clever, even if the level design is not always so.
Avec son look et un son délicieusement « rétro », Wizorb a su nous amuser des heures durant. Attention toutefois : la difficulté « d’époque » est aussi au rendez-vous et bien des joueurs risquent de jeter l’éponge avant de réussir à reconstruire les premières maisons du village. Un peu de persévérance donc, et vous tirerez le meilleur de ce titre.
