Excerpt: I have known about this niche title SPRAY for some years now. I hoped it would be like de Blob. We are spraying liquids to change the environment. Unfortunately we spray slime, water, vomit, and ice. Yes you read that right - vomit! That is absolutely disgusting. Couldn’t the game designers come up with something less gross?
Kids' adventure game uses vomit, slime as helpful tools.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is an adventure game designed for kids that features a pair of spirits -- an angel and a devil -- who spew various liquids from their mouths, including water, slime (green goop), and vomit (orange goop). The game is light-hearted, and the spraying mechanic is clearly intended to tickle the funny bones of youngsters whose sense of humor cues to burp and fart jokes.
Conclusion: SPRay has been one of the most difficult games to evaluate. It’s impossible to recommend as a purchase due to a handful of flaws that have a major, negative impact on the gameplay. At On the same token, it’s bursting with great platforming ideas that rival gaming’s top franchises. If you’re curious, we suggest a rental, but beware of inevitable frustration.
Excerpt: When you hear the words vomit-infused gameplay, do you think, ''hilarious'' or do you turn a little green and say, ''what the deuce? That's disgusting!'' If it's the latter then this isn't the game for you. As a spirited young prince named Ray, you travel a fantasy realm with an angel and a demon over your shoulder who each puke everything from slime to water to ice. Using these different liquid elements, you can stick to walls and uncover hidden paths.
Conclusion: If you're not a fan of the genre, Magician's Quest certainly isn't going to win you over. The pace is rather sluggish, the tasks are repetitive, there's a lot of text to read and there's an abundance of loading screens. As a result of the amount of reading, the game isn't meant for as young gamers as Animal Crossing was, but regardless, Magician's Quest is certainly a great game in its own right.
Pros: A successful attempt at creating a Animal Crossing style game.
Excerpt: With Nintendo's holiday lineup one of the weakest in recent memory, Wii owners are searching for quality games to fill their wish list. SPRay hopes to capitalize on the opportunity and achieve sleeper status. Its premise may turn some heads, but is it just another good concept with no substance? SPRay tells the story of a young prince named Ray who must save the kingdom of Ecoia by recovering sun crystals to defeat the evil Queen Mordack.
