X360/PC Review - 'Gyromancer'

WorthPlaying
24 February 2010
  • Summary: Gyromancer is a new puzzle-RPG developed in collaboration between Square Enix and PopCap. With a blend of puzzle elements from the PopCap Games puzzle hit Bejeweled Twist™ and the RPG mastery of Square Enix, Gyromancer is an all-new experience that defines the puzzle-RPG genre.

  • Summary: Gyromancer hits the ball out of the park in every department a puzzle game should – the challenging mechanics and rewards make the title addictive and there is a score of replayability in this seemingly simple title.

  • Conclusion: Sure, you get experience for winning the battle, but you also earn point bonuses for finishing the fight quickly and for avoiding Idle Twists (twists that don't break anything). On each of the maps, you can also find items to use in battle as well as more money for creature-summoning.

  • Excerpt: The biggest complaint about the puzzle-RPG hybrid game Puzzle Quest was that all the enemies seemed to be cheating, making moves that triggered gem chains that weren’t even on the board.

  • Conclusion: Gyromancer is a more expensive, more tedious, and less fun version of Puzzle Quest. Stick with the inspiration: you'll save yourself five dollars, and enjoy it a whole lot more.

GameSpot
25 November 2009
  • Summary: Bejeweled meets Magic: The Gathering. That comparison must have been part of the pitch meeting for Gyromancer, an Xbox Live Arcade game that fuses puzzle gaming with card games and role playing in a manner similar to that seen in Infinite Interactive's acclaimed Puzzle Quest.
  • Pros: Innovative, addictive puzzle-based battles, Lengthy campaign with huge levels, Good replay value
  • Cons: Tough learning curve in the beginning, due to a poor tutorial, Campaign can seem easy after you grind through a few levels, No multiplayer option
