  1. Despite the re-hashed ideas, there are more than enough unique tweaks to the formula to warrant giving Gyromancer a spin.
  2. After an hour or so of play this one is quite hard to put down. [Feb 2010, p.63]
  3. Gyromancer is not as complex or demanding as many of the big name titles on retail shelves, but high production values and polished gameplay carry it a long way.
  4. It's easy to assume that Gyromancer is a clone of Puzzle Quest...The truth, perhaps, is that it's simply an improvement on the formula. [Jan 2010, p.98]
  5. This is one for gem completionists, but it won't be raising any bars or breaking any moulds. [Feb 2010, p.84]
  6. Connect stones to harm your opponent – sounds familiar? There are many better games with similar concepts so try this one only if you've played them all... [Issue#187]

    While the game has a lot of potential and is shiny on the surface, it lacks the depth and accessibility that prior puzzle-bending titles have offered and serves up a game that's ultimately a Bejeweled Twist variant done up pretty.

    Gyromancer is one of the best fantasy puzzle games. The graphic, the music, all the atmosphere of the game is OK! It is very fun, and challenging! I recommend for everybody, who loves Puzzle games! Expand

    It's very pretty and serves up a heaping spoonful of Popcap's trademark crack. having both Square-Enix and Popcap team up was a fantastic idea. Sure, it feels like Bejeweled Twist with a makeover, but it's cheap and very entertaining. Perfect time-killing game. Expand
