One of my best purchases of 2018 has been my Nintendo Switch, I use it primarily as my handheld gaming device for my morning and afternoon public transportation commutes and I get in A LOT of gaming time. It also has lead me down a rabbit hole of amazing indie titles from devs and publishers. One of the first games I was given for review was Wizard of Legend developed by Contingent99 and published by Humble Publishing.
Wizard of Legend applies a retro aesthetic to a fast pace rouge-like dungeon crawler. Players run through dungeons that are procedurally generated with some precrafted rooms. Like any good Wizarding game there are a TON of spells and elements that players can use to craft their ultimate wizard.
Players venture into a grand hall to see shrines to the wizards before them who have become legend. Your goal, is to become a legend yourself.
The game plays amazing on Switch and feels right at home in your hands. Controls are easy and customizable so that you can be wizard you want to be. After getting used to the game and controls players will find themselves trying to get that perfect run. The game keeps track of how many times you have tried so I can sense many gamers will be trying to get that number lower and lower.
If you’re looking for an amazing, not-too-challenging-but-challenging-enough rouge-like dungeon crawler, Wizard of Legend is a MUST buy for your Nintendo Switch. After you’ve gone through and completed it, come back here and tell us how many tries it too you. See if you can beat my record of 37.
