2/11/2005 5:44:06 PM - Spellcaster reviewed at Game Xtazy!

Spellcaster just received a glowing review over at Game Xtazy. Here are a few quotes:

"The playing screen is gorgeous, too, from the stony rune board where the letters reside, to the moonlit backdrop, to the bookcase filled with tomes, candles and magical knickknacks. The powerups are nicely drawn and animated, especially the Death Knight, who grins evilly as he surveys the rune board and shoots a fire ball that eliminates a much-needed vowel."

"A variety of 3D effects, including real-time lighting, make the fireworks that launch when you level up special. If you're not into word games, Spellcaster is worth the download just to experience the visuals."

"The real fun begins when you link several spells into a single word. In my proudest moment, I used two bats, a potion, a points multiplier and the requisite letters to spell “achievement.” There were arrows and lines all over the board, and as I clicked the spell book to summon my powers, I knew I was in for an ethereal light show that would rival Pink Floyd."

"Chain together the letters c-h-i-l-l-b-u-m-p-s while playing, and you'll spell out the effect the audio had on me. A hooting owl and soft medieval music lured me into the world of Spell+caster; the screams that emanated from my speakers when a Death Knight appeared provided a hair-raising contrast to the otherwise soothing audio. I also liked how hellstones sizzled and potions gurgled when I moved my cursor over them. From the zing of a well-cast spell to the haunting moans that reach for you when you misspell a word, the audio in Spellcaster is rich and complete."
