  1. All together, I found Magic Ball to be pretty bland, and to top things off the game tells you that it's to be continued, with spots already reserved for additional episodes, obviously meaning that there's some DLC down the road.

    Above all, Magic Orbz is original, as it has its own design, settings and even power-ups regarding gameplay. It may be a bit difficult at times, but should precisely be a good point. Overall, it deserves 8 points out of 10.

    Magic Ball is actually a lot of fun to play, especially in co-op mode. In fact, it's one of the only games my fiancé and I have Magic Ball is actually a lot of fun to play, especially in co-op mode. In fact, it's one of the only games my fiancé and I have played through together (she doesn't normally play many games). I like that this game uses a physics-based engine to make things more exciting, but at times that does make it very hard to predict where the ball is going to bounce. The 'sets' that you look at are also very cool, but occasionally objects will obstruct your view. That said, we managed to beat every level (and just got the 'witches' themed expansion) without having to retry that many of them. It was well worth getting. Full Review »
