Description: Do you have what it takes to be a wizard? In SpellShokked, you assemble magical symbols into devastating spells that you then hurl at your opponents – other wizards, monsters, or your friends. Fair Warning, Apprentice: this is NOT a twitch game. Combat in SpellShokked is agonizingly slow. Being successful requires nerves of steel more than anything else. Yes, that onrushing fireball sure is disconcerting. Keep calm, finish your spell. Don’t hasten casting, or you will die. SpellShokked! is all about keeping your nerve, rather than having quick reflexes. Want to win? Take note of the spell your opponent is assembling. Think twice about which spell to start yourself. When done casting, aim carefully. Never, ever, blink with a spell half-cast. Always look over your shoulder, always check the ground you stand on. Being paranoid is a definite plus here. Use your shield to reflect spells.

Review: I kind of see what the developer was going for with SpellShokked!, but let me assure you that the idea falls well short of being something I could recommend. It’s supposed to be some sort of magic action battle game in which you go on a small single-player adventure or battle with friends online or locally. Sadly the multiplayer side of things is as good as dead so all you are left with is a terrible mini-adventure that isn’t worth a fraction of the £15.49 asking price. But if you ever managed to get this for a quid or less it might be worth a look, But I certainly wouldn’t pay anything more than that.
