A sweet puzzler, action adventure game
The gist of Wizkid is that it includes a lot of minigames all focused on the main character who is a bouncing ball which is poised on destruction. Don't be too scared, this premise might sound like the apocalypse but the game is actually very colorful and very ok to be played by a child. What you will be doing 90 percent of the time will be to demolish set pieces containing tiles, circles, beads and so on, while trying to stay away from bees and other dangers that are threatening you. The more you progress, the more complicated the designs become and also, the harder it will be to avoid your followers. Luckily enough, Wizkid, the protagonist is very fast and swift. But this can be a problem, as you will need to control him very stiffly in order to avoid being caught. Unfortunately the game gets very repetitive very quickly, everything will repeat, the enemies, the tiles the patterns of the tiles and so on. So, the best way to play this is to do it in very short bursts. Later on in the game you can expect some surprises and some changes in the gameplay mechanics, but you have to have patience.
