    4 player WiFi? Voice chat?

    This looks almost like Underworlds, which is a good thing. Hope the dev pops in here and tells us some stuff about this. Their website and support links in the iTunes store lead to absolutely no where. It's just some Korean domain website that says that verypixel.com has been registered on May 13, 2009.

    Doubt that will happen. They don't have a working website. Very odd. Nothing on the internet about this game.

    I'm not sure about voice, it might mean text based chat to help us work out strategies since there is supportive magic there to help the team out

    Ok, first impressions. I'll write a full-fledged review later on.

    The premise is simple. The land has been taken over by monsters when the wizards could no longer fend them back. You're one of the last, and it's your job to make sure the monsters don't take over the world next.

    You're the stereotype of a wizard, er, mage. You have the robe, the hat, staff, even a crooked back. This ain't Harry Potter. You move by tapping where you want to go. You double tap in the direction you want to send an attack. Moving and attacking is a little messy right now, but with time, I'm pretty sure I'll get the hang of it.

    Graphics, while not spectacular, are pretty darn good. The animations, movement, and backgrounds are of course cut-back a bit so that the file size isn't huge and so that everything runs smoothly, but I don't mind looking at this at all. The static electricity attack (first ability you get) and leveling up looks great.

    As you shoot down baddies, they drop items that are placed in the inventory at the bottom. Tap them to pick them up. Experience, level, gold, and health are at the top.

    Something different from RPGs that I just not noticed is that instead of having mana and an ability, you have a book that has a number of uses. I'm guessing you buy the books, maybe some from bosses but I haven't played that much yet.

    All in all, I don't regret the purchase yet. For only $3, it seems pretty well made.

    Graphics and gameplay is nice (better than underworld), but the English used is awkward.:p
    A 4 static shock out 5?

    thanks, any other info would be great (such as, are there any gear to find? quests/subquests? are the levels randomly generated?)

    There are voice chat APIs in the new 3.0. So games can have voice chat if they use it just like that Adrenaline Pool 2 game.

    @Kamazar have you tried WiFi or no?

    I just meant that if it was voice chat I would think that they would make it a point to say some. Though the english in the description was a bit off so maybe that was what the dev was trying to say.

    I'd love voice chat but I'm keeping my expectations low

    Your review sounds a little pessimistic. I mean what wizard isn't "stereotypical"? But anyway, I thought the graphics and animations were pretty good.

    I haven't played enough to give a review. Maybe later.
