Magician's Quest: Mysterious Times :: DS Game Preview

Magician's Quest is set in a wonderfully cute world where people attend Magic Academy and use what they learn to better the lives of those around them. In the game, you play as a new student of the Academy and you meet new friends, earn money, buy accessories, and learn new spells in class.

Hey, This Feels Familiar!

In many ways, Magician's Quest is similar to Nintendo's Animal Crossing, right down to how the world rolls around as you move on the map. In the game, you complete daily activities to improve your character's life. Just like in Animal Crossing, there is fishing and bug collecting and you can also buy furniture to use to decorate your house. There are over 150 unique characters to befriend, including strange animal-people that you may have gotten used to by now. Your relationships with your classmates and townspeople will have levels that can improve or worsen over time depending on whether you do things like giving presents to them.

But...It's Different!

At the same time, there are huge differences that make Magician's Quest a worthwhile title to consider. For one thing, you are a wizard in this game! There are several themes in the game like Who, Where, When, and Do and each have 15 elements. You can cast spells by combining these various elements together and preparing a spell on your wand. Although you still have limited space in your inventory, you don't have to worry about carrying a watering can or fishing rod since your magic wand can transform into it!

There are lots of things that you can customize in Magician's Quest. There are 1,600 different kinds of clothing, furniture, characters and accessories to find, buy and use. You can even customize the music and sound effects with the music editor, changing the bell and hourly tones, as the game runs in real-time. You can connect with up to four other friends via Wi-Fi and visit each other's town and trade spells. You can even work together to combine your magical abilities and complete difficult tasks.

Magician's Quest is a great game to pick up if you are a Harry Potter, Animal Crossing, or MySims fan. It is a great game to play even if you are not a fan! Be sure to keep an eye on store shelves next week, when the game comes out.

    Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
