‘Magic Flute’ Combines Video Games, Mozart, and Japanese Opera?!

TouchArcade Rating:

I’m very glad that one of the after-effects of the success of Monument Valley ($3.99) is that it’s encouraging other developers to try and do their own artsy puzzlers on the App Store with their own unique influences. Magic Flute is another one of those games, releasing this Thursday, September 24th, on to the App Store. Created by Polish studio LabLike, in collaboration with Japanese stage director Amon Miyamoto, this is a puzzle game based on Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute.

The game has you moving blocks around the world to advance the story, making it from one scene to another. It’s very inspired by the work Amon Miyamoto did in his adaptation of The Magic Flute opera, but presented in puzzle game form. It’s a fascinating blend of two very disparate art forms in video games and opera, and you’ll be able to check it out for yourself this Thursday for $1.99 – far cheaper than an actual opera ticket.
