    Some might be quick to call games like Spellsword a copycat, but when a game improves on its inspiration in just about every way imaginable like Spellsword does, it's hard to justify such labels. While Super Crate Box may have invented the formula, Spellsword elevates it to the next level. Fans of SCB, consider yourself warned – you have your new addiction.

    With some elbow grease and a good once over, Spellsword could easily earn a permanent spot on my iPhone. It's really that good.

    A true jewel. A fun, entertaining and very complete game, almost unlimited in duration and with great visual. Can be considered a must-have for iOS.

    Spellsword delivers a solid, fun action platform experience, packed with tons of items and power-ups to unlock, some nice 16-bit style graphics and plenty of challenge.

    If Spellsword's enemies are disappointingly generic, there's a tactile joy in dispatching them: slimes and bats explode messily as blasts of wind launch them into walls, and it's possible to enjoy a brief game of swingball with the laser-shooting eyes that dangle elastically from the ceiling.

    Spellsword is a wonderful new take on the arena-based platforming formula we've seen before and feels incredibly well-polished, balancing its mechanics to provide plenty of opportunities for skillful play and strategic thinking.

    At a buck, Spellsword is a steal, ideal for hack-and-slash RPG fans and high score addicts.The team behind Spellsword might have started with Super Crate Box as their inspiration, but thankfully, they knew when to split off and do their own thing. They've created a game with an entirely different look, feel and play from their influences.
