Review: I like a good real-world game of squash so I was looking forward to playing ‘Magical Squash’. Sadly the game is not as easy as I would have liked and you need to be very precise on where you hit even after just a few rounds you will find it next to impossible to hit the ball into the target. But then again I am willing to put that down to myself being a crap squash player. It looks OK I suppose and the sound effects are quite good, but the lack of game modes and multiplayer does make it hard to recommend given how many others in the same genre offer more. But it is not terrible so I recommend you wait until you can get it in a really good sale. Grab this for a quid and you won’t be disappointed.
