Magicite is a rogue like platformer that has a mix of survival and exploration elements mixed in. The games developers SmashGames have create a game that is not only fun to play but challenging if not downright merciless. The game was originally on steams early access but has since left but is still updated with the funds that were raised on Kickstarter.
Magicite doesn’t really have a story. But townsfolk that can be found between the levels can be spoken to and can give you a bit of info about the world.
Magicite seem to draw idea and concepts of other game, the platforming from games like Spelunky and the survival system from Minecraft as well as some RPG elements. The first thing that the player is required is to create is their character. At first the level of choice the player has is very limited with only two different hairstyle and the ability to roll a dice to determine what stats and the two random traits they will receive. After a few good play through, other options will be unlocked such as new races, hats and companions that can give some extra buffs and make the game easier. Different races have a different set of starting gear. Hats have special effect and companions will provide passive effects.
After the player create their character they are dropped into a forest biome with the starting item of their race. Every level is randomly generated when a level is completed the player will be given a choice of three other biomes which are also randomly generated. Player can visit towns in between levels were item can be bought or sold as well as craft new ones. When the player level up that gain more stat points and with be able to skills from skill trees melee, magic and ranged. Player can have three skill and they are given to them randomly.
Player must collected resources to craft new tool to help in the higher level as well to help manage hunger. Crafting is easy to make an item you must combine two other items. They are not many recipes so they are easy to learn and you just need better material to make better items.
Magicite is an unforgiving game health pools are few and far between and potion are rare. Playing with friend can make it easier because downed player can be revived by another player. However the reviver is left vulnerable for about three second.
The controls for Magicite are for keyboard and mouse only, the keyboard for moving and the mouse for interacting and aiming. The control are very responsive which is so important in a platformer with this level of difficulty.
Magicite has a very retro feel with it simple 16-bit graphics and bright and vibrant colours, with the games background being as dark as it is make the colours stand out even more. The game can scale to high resolution without any problem.
The Audio like the visuals has a very retro 16-bit feel. However the is no menu music which is a little strange but once in the game the music is great.
I love the game from it brutal difficulty to its retro art style and soundtrack the game has so much replay ability, and with the controls being as responsive as they are SmashGames have created something that mixes survival, RPG, roguelike and platforming into something truly great. Anybody that likes a challenge, platformers or just like to play game with some friends or by your self should definitely give this game a go.
