Mage Cage, is four player spell casting mayhem, basically a free for all with magic spell instead of the usual guns and guts. Set inside a school for wizards, you can pick from four talented and fine trainee wizards, and then try to blast, burn or freeze the head off the other three. It’s fast furious action, that will have you cross eyed trying to keep an eye on your character.
The game of Mage Cage is simple, you are thrown into a level with three other wizards, and only one can win. Mage Cage features five, well designed and well thought out 2D platform level. These are the Mountain Top, Forge, Library, Spire and the Stronghold, with the forge being my personal favourite. Then you have the four wizards, Tera, Vitreus, Caleo and Nox. Each of these wizards has their own special abilities. And I can say when all of these abilities are going off at once on the screen, it is just hectic. The only other game I played that made me loose where I was on the screen before Mage Cage, was Chompy Chomp Chomp. Although Mage Cage is nothing like that game, the action is just as furious and fun. Mage Cage is just so entertaining that it will have you sitting there for hours, without even realising it, that is until the wife come home.
The graphics and level design, are eye pleasing and well constructed. It really is a joy to watch, and the abilities are very well animated. It is obvious that the effort has been put into every aspect of the game, however it does need some more levels. As there is not enough variety with just the five. The characters are well designed and animated, with fluid controls and actions. The gameplay is the real asset of Mage Cage, so much so you probably won’t even notice what level you are on. Grab a couple of friends and Mage Cage really hits boiling point on the fun scale.
Yes it may well be lacking a little variety, but Mage Cage puts a nice twist on the beat em up genre. It is a sack full of fun, magic and mayhem. And lets face it you can only get so much bang for your buck these days. If you like frantic action, with flying fire balls then Mage Cage is for you. It’s a bit like Harry Potter on steroids, and now he is finally letting out all that built up testosterone, as he couldn’t get near Heromine. And starts blowing the crap out of his fellow wizards, well that’s how I see it anyway lol. Go and get Mage Cage, I really like it and I am sure you will too, until next time, keep playing.
