Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color – Review

GameCritics.com
12 November 2003
  • Excerpt: With the advent of new console technology, the potential exists for previously unseen ideas and experiences to be realized. So far, we've mostly been treated to the same concepts with better graphics and online connectivity, but those are just the obligatory first steps. With so much horsepower under the hood, it would be extremely shortsighted to avoid pushing videogames' very structure further.

  • Excerpt: I can honestly say that Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color is one of the RPGs I’m most looking forward to. The more I hear of the game the more I’m impressed with it. At first glance the game may seem a little silly, but Magic Pengel appears to have a lot to offer. You as the player take the role of a traveling “Doodler” led along by a Magic Pengel. For those of you who are curious, a Pengel is a combination of the words “pen” and “angel”.

  • Excerpt: Generally speaking, calling something a 'one-trick pony' is derogatory at best. The term refers to something that does one thing pretty well -- generally to the exclusion of all else. Gaming has had its share of one-trick ponies over the years, and most of those games have been consigned to the great clearance rack of failed games.

  • Excerpt: So you feel like picking up a fighting game, but you also feel like drawing.What should you choose? What ever will you do? You're in luck because now you don't have to choose. Enter Agetec's Magic Pengel, where you draw your own character and send it off to arena combat. It's a fun idea and a cute game, but is it deep enough to satisfy? Click here to ask Monica.

  • Excerpt: Every now and then a game comes along that really changes the way we look at games. Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color is just such a game. The cartoon-like graphics are not radically different than everything else out there, but the way it's used is simply amazing! The word 'Pengel' is a combination of 'Pen' and 'Angel', so your Pengel is literally a 'Pen-Angel'. It flies around with you and draws your doodles (under your command, of course).

Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color review (PS2)

HonestGamers
10 July 2003
  • Excerpt: is a role-playing game that eschews the massive world, grand storyline, and extensive inventories so many consider staples of the genre. Instead, it embraces a system through which gamers collect magic crystals and parts, then use them to create just about any character they can imagine. For the first time, we have the chance to play a role-playing game that isn't limited so much by hardware, but rather our own imaginations.

  • Conclusion: En Conclusion, Magic Pengel : the Quest for color est un titre surprenant tant par son graphisme que par l’originalité de son concept. On reste médusé et charmé par le mode de création accessible à tout le monde et à tout age et on s’extasie à chouchouter et à exhiber ses créations devant ses amis.
