    It’s apparent that Contingent99 knows what they are doing, and they’ve confirmed that there is post-launch content on the way as well, so be sure to give these two gentlemen an honest shot, as you may end up as pleasantly surprised as I was, if not more so.

    Consistently challenging but impossible to put down is certainly a cliche, but it’s a perfect description of this game.

    Wizard of Legend is a surprisingly deep game despite its simple premise, fans of dungeon crawlers, roguelikes or just anyone in the market for a fun couch co-op game should definitely check out Contigent99 debut title.

    Wizard of Legend is simply great fun, with an awesome couch co-op mode, and loads of replay value. Its difficulty can spike at odd times, and some spells seem utterly useless. But beyond that, there's just a lot of fireball hurling mayhem to be had as you try to pass the trials.

    Wizard of Legend is a fast-paced dungeon crawler with rogue-like elements and a good combat system based on the combination of over 100 magic spells. Too bad for the procedurally-generated dungeons that show how to be less creative and more lazy.

    At the end of the day, Wizard of Legend is a totally fine arcade-style dungeon crawling roguelite. It’s not near the top of the genre, or even near the top of the genre’s Switch representation, but with the fun two-player experience, it’s a respectable addition. If you’d rather sling spells then shoot guns, dance among the dead, or jump around, Wizard of Legend is a good game to pick up.

    Wizard of Legend has some novel concepts. Being able to swap and mix spells to create a seemingly unlimited amount of combinations keeps the action fresh and encourages you to experiment on each run. What’s also likable about this game is how polished the entire package appears to be. It’s these aspects that make it more favourable than the average offerings that frequently pop up on the Switch.

    this is basically enter the gungeon, beat em up edition (instead of being a twin stick shooter) great little game, totally worth the money,this is basically enter the gungeon, beat em up edition (instead of being a twin stick shooter) great little game, totally worth the money, nice pixel art, awesome music, one of the best indies on any platform if you like arcade style skills/reactions based gameplay, seems very hard at first but gets easier as you get used to the different magic attacks you acquire & then practice with.
