    At a mere 2 quid, you'd have to be insane not to pick Wizorb up. [June 2012, p.101]

    One of the best bat-and-ballers since Breakout itself.

    Still, it's a very well-designed game that harkens back to the arcade era which adds a few new twists to what could've been a very dull game. Fans of brick-breaking titles will find much to enjoy with Wizorb. It adds a new wrinkle to gameplay with its magic elements, and its mimicry of the bygone NES days will charm the pants off anyone nostalgic for that era.

    Wizorb is a successful tribute to Breakout and Arkanoid, with good pixelated graphics and precise controls. The mouse support makes this game a little too easy, but at its price it's still a deal.

    I got this game in a bundle and it surprised me. I like the original combination of pong style game play and RPG elements. I whipped through the game in a furious addiction but I wouldn't say there is much replay value. AND it wasn't too long, which I liked. Most games these days have more content than the mechanics demand. Wizorb was just long enough to keep my interest piqued the entire time. I am looking forward to a sequel. Expand

    I very much enjoy Breakout style games as a genre, and this was no exception! The graphics, presentation and music of the game fit perfectly with the story and type of game it is. It can get boring (and rather hard) but I have come to expect this as there is only so much you can do with this kind of game. It's only £2 (I got it on sale for 99p!) and offers some fun that could potentially last for many many hours, so pick it up, you might not regret it. 82/100. Expand

    While I really liked the game's graphics, sound and environment, the gameplay felt lackluster and shallow. Yes, it's just a simple breakout-clone at heart, but I felt that the RPG aspect was vastly underused. Recommended for those from the 8-bit era, looking for a short, but sweet arcade game. Expand

    Nice concept, interesting game. Gets boring quickly though because there's no novelty past the first level. The story is cool but the game is short.

    Wizorb is a fair arkanoid-like game with bunch of RPG-like elements. Nice but stops being interesting veery soon. A solid 6, but still no more than a 6. Expand

    This game was great up until the last world. Arkanoid/Breakout clones are supposed to be about breaking blocks, reaction time skills, and aiming the trajectory of the ball to hit blocks. This game instead focuses on a multitude of anti-fun game design elements, especially in the last world. You have to beat each world (12 maps plus a boss) in a row, no saving, and have limited continues. If you get a game over you have to start the whole world over again. This compounded with the awful game design decisions in the last world (at least half the map unbreakable blocks, frontal invincible enemies that knock your ball away, invincible narrow passages that ping-pong your ball everywhere, and a boss that is invincible to your ball and can 1 shot your paddle) alone make this game a no go. There are tons of other Araknoid/Breakout clones out there, try something like Shatter instead. Expand

    If you like breakout-type games, you MIGHT like this game. It's slow, occasionally frustrating, and boring! The controls aren't that great, and it's even a bit confusing. Waste of time. Not even worth the 74 cents I paid for it! It enticed me with "RPG" and it let me down. Do not recommend. Expand
