  • Excerpt: Do you like Bejeweled? Do you like Pokemon? Do you like RPGs too? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to bring the three together? Well look no further. PopCap Games and Square-Enix have come together to bring you an experience not unlike several others. Enter Gyromancer, a puzzle RPG that melds fantasy and puzzle. It has conquest, intrigue, magic, monsters, and bosomy female characters. Is this the puzzle RPG you have been dreaming of all your life?

GameTrailers
8 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Gyromancer is the latest game to combine swords, sorcery, and gem matching in the wake of the humble but hugely influential Puzzle Quest. As a joint venture between RPG giant Square Enix and casual game king Pop Cap, Gyromancer frames its own unique brand of match-three battles with rich artwork and epic music. Could this downloadable game become the new ruler of the surprisingly popular genre?

Gyromancer

AV Club
30 November 2009
  • 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. So when Square Enix and PopCap teamed up to produce a new Bejeweled -based RPG, they made opponents passive combatants. If you lose a fight in Gyromancer , it’s because of your own negligence rather than any AI strategy.

Game Informer
24 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Mix Bejeweled Twist with Square Enix fantasy stylings Graphics: Gorgeous character and monster art accompany bright magical flashes of color Sound: Music is entertaining, but repetitive Playability: The simple gem twisting mechanic is straightforward and easy to understand Entertainment: A diverting variation on the familiar gem matching concept Replay: Moderate

Gyromancer Review

GamingTrend
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: At first glance, Gyromancer looks like a match made in heaven.  Take the super-addictive Bejeweled Twist, stick it in a Puzzle Quest style storyline format, and sew it together by the undisputed masters of the RPG, Square Enix.   It You Gyromancer tells the story of Riven Ardell, an all-powerful court mage who gets caught up in a battle against a disgruntled warrior faction called Temperance.

Review: "Gyromancer" (X360)

gamingxp.com
24 January 2010
  • Excerpt: „ Gyromancer “ entführt Sie als Zauberer Rivel in den magischen Aldemona Wald, wo Sie ursprünglich den flüchtigen Bösewicht Qraist ausfindig machen wollten, doch ganz im Stil von Square Enix ist die Sachlage natürlich nicht so simpel und so werden im Laufe des Spiels finstere Hintermänner mit bösen Machenschaften aufgedeckt, doch das ist alles nebensächlich, denn „ Gyromancer “ ist eigentlich ein Puzzle-Spiel.
  • Pros: Puzzles machen süchtig, Bestiarium-Management
  • Cons: Austauschbares Setting, Fade Zwischensequenzen

17 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Gyromancer est un bon petit jeu qui change un peu de tous les autres titres du genre. On regrettera cependant le fait que le jeu ne soit pas jouable en multijoueur par exemple et le prix peut être un peu excessif pour le coup. 1200 Microsoft points pour un puzzle game et cela même avec des éléments de RPG, c'est un peu cher payé tout de même.
  • Pros: Un gameplay tactique très sympa, L'aspect collection qui pousse à aller plus loin, Une bonne durée de vie
  • Cons: Pas de mode multi, La musique vite redondante
