The Magic Obelisk review (WII)

  • Excerpt: Faulty cooperative AI is usually where I draw the line. If I can't work with a game without talking down to it, then it's just not worth my time.

The Magic Obelisk Review

  • Conclusion: Presentation-wise, The Magic Obelisk is also quite good. The characters, environments, and music all mix together nicely into what ultimately feels like a children's story book come to life. Lukus himself even has a few facial expressions to help him emote; although I do feel that he seems a little too similar to Link from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in terms of design and his reactions.

The Magic Obelisk review

Wii's World

  • Conclusion: Conclusion The WiiWare platform has built itself a mighty selection within the years its been available. The Magic Obelisk only adds positively to that selection, with its quirky experimentation and unique style. While definitely not without problems of difficulty, some moments of amateurishness, and a lackluster music and sound rendition, The Magic Obelisk should definitely be among people's many considerations for new WiiWare titles to give a download.

  • Excerpt: Необычный пазл The Magic Obelisk рассказывает историю двух героев – самоуверенного духа дерева Люкуса и молчаливого духа света Попо. Первому жизненно необходимо пустить где-нибудь корни, а второму просто хочется оказать помощь своему другу. Проблема в том, что Люкус может находиться только в тени – едва попав на солнечный свет, он мгновенно гибнет. На помощь придет Попо, который может направлять тень расставленных по уровням магических обелисков в любом направлении.
