    If you're hankering for some classic Arkanoid-style action, but would like a game that adds a little depth and removes the end-level frustration, you've found it. And at just $5.95 / 15 MB, there's no excuse not to get it.

    Wizorb is the right kind of snack for those, who want some retro-feelings paired with challenging Arkanoid-style gameplay and some bits of role-playing flavour. Enjoy!

    Beatshapers is no stranger to the PlayStation universe, as they're known for bringing a unique mixture of hit indie titles over to the PS Mini service. With Tribute Games' Wizorb, they've stirred up the nostalgia pot and formulated an RPG infused Arkanoid clone that's sure to warm the hearts of old-school souls.

    Breakout updated. Wizorb is more intense than your average stab at the format. And the inclusion of extra abilities and retro appearance refresh a genre that didn't seem to be going anywhere.
  5. A probably-ought-to-be-illegal level of compulsiveness that belies its simplicity. [Nov 2012, p.117]

    Nothing particularly new or thrilling but nice enough. [Issue#222, p.81]

    Wizorb is a good imitator of Arkanoid. Unfortunately it did not have enough courage to impose his vision, yet it remains a good game for lovers of the genre.

    Wizorb is an alloy of the breakout game genre and jRPG elements. You playing as wizard who travelling on the magic kingdom. By talking with NPC he receives quests and can transform himself into paddle and ball to fight enemies: talking with somebody, going out from village - level now looks like the arkanoid and the battle start. This is pretty nice mechanics and well executed on PSP minis and doesn't look too bad on PS Vita. 60 levels, epic boss fights, each with unique mechanics, store to buy tome items, high replayablity value and great price - this is one of the best minis now on market.
