In celebration of its 10 year anniversary, a new old game makes its way over to the Nintendo Switch. Ready to use your magic wand and face epic boss fights? Save the Kingdom of Gorudo in the Switch release of Wizorb, developed and published by Tribute Games.
Once, the Kingdom of Gorudo enjoyed peace. However, as an evil presence approaches, its only hope for salvation lies in Cyrus, the wizard versed in a secret magical art. That magical art is called… Wizorb! Explore the monster-infested Clover town all the way to Gorudo Castle atop Cauldron Peak. Stay vigilant on your journey, as danger lurks around in just about every corner. You’ll need more than just luck to survive…
The game boasts brick breaker action, 5 magical worlds, epic bosses, and special power-ups. At the core of the game, players use a magical ball to destroy bricks and enemies. Its RPG elements adds on rebuilding towns to help restore NPCs and fighting a variety of different bosses. It carries a totally retro feel and looks like something I might’ve played on the GameBoy back in the day.
