Stolen Couch Games' tactical RPG Kids vs Goblins has been getting a lot of traction on our message board for good reason: it looks hot. In the game, you'll control three kids with up to 80 different spells on a quest that'll see them exploring a total of seven unique environments. As you'll see in the new trailer below, the spell system takes a cue from Magicka; it encourages users to combine individual spells and then exploit the combined power in order to progress and beat up waves of bad dudes. There seems to be a fair bit of standard action RPG-ery, too.

Kids vs Goblins is being published by Crescent Moon Games, and is expected to hit the iPad first later this February. In the game's message board thread, the publisher has noted that Apple has it in its hands right now, so it's just a matter of approval. We'll continue keeping our eye on this one, for sure.

    The article says up to 80 spells but the video says 60+?
    The game looks great. Hope it exceeds expectations!

    I don't know about that "action packed" comment. I'll keep an eye on this one.

    from Crescent Moon, eh? at least we have nothing to fear when it comes to the graphics, but after Evertales..... let's just say I'll wait for the review on this one.

      Crescent Moon is just the publisher, the game is actually made by a different team than the one behind Evertales

        I know, but it's kinda like Chillingo; of course they still check what they publish (ever wonder why almost every week Chillingo pumps out another physics puzzler? yeah, something like that)

      I actually agree. My opinion of most Crescent Moon releases (yes I know they're a publisher) is different from the majority. They just seem very dense. Especially Evertales which took less than an hour to complete. Hope this is different though, as it looks fun.

    Kinda sounds like Costume Quest: Magicka Edition.
