World of Wizmatch comes packed with inventive ideas, entertaining gameplay, and enough variety to keep us thoroughly engaged.
It’s exactly the sort of reimagined fun that makes match 3 games so addictive. For more on the title, just scroll down below the break for our full review!
Concept and Gameplay
The core idea behind World of Wizmatch, from Rampant Apps Ltd, will be readily familiar to just about any casual gamer for iOS.
You’ll need to match three or more alike objects in order to obliterate them, scoring more points and potentially setting off chain reactions. It’s the same as you’d expect anywhere else, leading to the ways in which World of Wizmatch is truly unique—
To begin with, World of Wizmatch is kind of like an RPG in the sense that you get to create your own character. This avatar is actually called a “Wizatar,” which is either corny, funny, or quite possibly both.
You’ll use this avatar to battle all manner of online and offline foe, conquering enemies and accruing powers as you go along.
In this sense, World of Wizmatch does provide a little something extra for the fans. there are a ton of different skills and spells you can acquire to boost the gameplay. These go a long way toward enlivening the action, and the replay value doesn’t suffer because of it.
All things considered, the fresh action is definitely enough to keep us in the pot.
Design and Graphics
The interface itself is oddly split. On the one hand, the player avatars are basically emoticons from the early 2000s. Likewise, a lot of the icons and minor elements within the layout don’t exactly scream next-gem.
However, what World of Wizmatch does really well is act like a match three game. The animations are crisp, the gameplay is expertly designed, and the spells are often quite incredible. Truly, a lot of time has been spent trying to make the gameplay itself look great, at times even outright fantastic.
So sum total, you can expect the good stuff to be well-represented where it matters. And though we have our problems with some of the other details World of Wizmatch’s packing, the gameplay is beyond critique.
And at the end of the day, it’s hard to knock a game that doesn’t cost you anything to play. You can jump straight into the action today without any risk, and with quite a lot of reward. To us, that easily makes World of Wizmatch worth looking into.
Whether you’re a fan of the genre or not, you’ll get a lot out of World of Wizmatch.
It’s a rock-solid title with great graphics (for the most part) and entertaining gameplay. And all in all, that’s enough for us!
World of Wizmatch requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
