Pooka: Magic and Mischief [Free], the colorful RPG game that lets you literally chase the Gloom away, is now available worldwide, and it looks like it's going to be a fun game to play either by yourself (if you like casual but pretty RPGs) or with your little ones. As we wrote about a few weeks back, Pooka lets you create your own, very silly looking Pookas (part of the fun of this game is the character creation system that's as absurd as it is cute) and take to saving the world from the infectious Gloom invasion that has turned the world gloomy.

Your Pookas are made up of parts you discover along the way, and with over 150 of them, you'll have plenty of combos to make. The game gives you a motive to come back often since the Gloom you clear up slowly returns (a great idea for a free-to-play game). Pooka also has asynchromous multiplayer, where players can summon friends to take on the Gloom together and even send gifts to each other. Overall, Pooka: Magic and Mischief seems like an entertaining game with plenty to do and a colorful world to do it in. The game is available now on both iOS and Android.

    So far with what I’ve played today, it’s Offline playable you can make a account to save data to transfer data, there are timers for the quest chests and the parts you get to craft, the Magic is infinite you can do a sun dance to restore magic, Magic unlocks as you play OR you can use gems, the Magic is customizable like the healing power at first can be the default or you can remove the gloom with rainbows & another choice is bubbles more open later on. The earth magic at the start is a dragon but can be changed as well the other choice is a fairy, your Sun dance can be changed to different dances and so on with the other Magic’s each can be made different. The Pooka you make is unique and tip don’t like the part choice at the start uninstall the game reinstall and new parts sometimes end up in the start up pool, these parts also are given the npc if they need them, they reward you with orbs, orbs can be converted to gems as well. There are many levels with what I’ve seen and each level has multiple areas that are open to move through, loading screens appear going to the den and customization area. Some areas are locked to a certain element so do some quests and unlock it, or buy it up to you.
    It’s offline, it’s freemium yes but it’s cute & fun so far. I like it for a freemium game it’s well done.
