This game is very hard to love. It is one where the distinction between recommending it and saying it isn't worth it is hard. The visuals are very nice, considering they are done by paul robertson, this is a given. The gameplay itself is where the issues fall. You have magic powers, such as the ability to teleport the ball or control where it floats. While these powers are nice, the game is incredibly difficult. Blocks which need to be broken are almost always behind unbreakable objects and the further you venture into the game, the more often this occurs. If you enjoy a challenge and like brick breaking games, go for it if this game is on a good sale. I enjoyed the challenge of the game so I give it my approval, but this game is definately not for everyone.

Quick review:

Short Verdict: Recommended if you like arkanoid and RPG theme. Don't expect anything awesome. Has a lot of room for improvement. It was a disappointment compared to what I was expecting, but still a good game!

Pros:
  • Nice retro graphics
  • Fun arkanoid with solid 8-bit RPG theme
  • Even has some generic story going on
  • Good BGM

Cons:
  • Low replay value, since replaying a level means it's gonna be exactly the same, even the drops from bricks
  • Should be able to collect power-ups from destroyed bricks (you just get them by buying them, lose them when you die and can't buy a second of the same power-up to use it if you die)
  • Most enemies are just basically the same, just with different graphics
  • You end up not using magic as much as desired

This was a fun little thing. It's the classic Breakout formula with some sprinkles on the top, kind of reminicant of Arkanoid (but with magic).

This is a breakout style game with retro Legen of Zelda graphics that can be fun if you like these kinds of games.
I don't usually like these games but this one grew on me, if this type of game isn't you're cup of tea you may not like it, especially in the later levels when it gets very difficult.

Overall I recommend it since it's only $3 and if it's on sale you should buy it.

This is a fairly fun throwback to the block-breaking games of the past. Pixel graphics and 8-bit sound complete the retro experience, with cards and achievements to add some modern meta-game. Some of the achievements help to motivate for a little bit of replayability, but you're unlikely to get all of them unless you really like this style of game. All in all it's worth a go, but little to keep you playing once you've played a couple of times.

Wizorb iz probably the most MLG game there is to come around during the Holiday Season. It is ONLY three dollars and totally worth it. Snoop Dogg gave this game a 100/100 on Metacritic and it iz super swag too. Also, this game is sponsered by Mountain Dew, Doritos, AND Call of Duty therefore it iz the best game 2014. It will be released in 2015 thanks to Obama and his amazing presidency. The game devs told me that Snoop Dogg told them how to code this game. It will only be released on the DS Triple and the Wii U. It is also considered to be DLC for Smash 4 including Shrek and Donkey as a playable characters and Fiona as a boss. Thanks for Listening!

Was excited to play a new take on an old game; deeply disappointed. Level design is absolute ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, some levels are not difficult but rather tedious and luck based. So much potential for this game to be a fun block smasher, just ends up being frustrating. 4/10 stay away, buy another block break game that is actually worth your money.

Don't be fooled by its looks.
Wizorb is off to a pleasant start with its charming pixel look reminiscent of the RPGs of the days of yore. It's miles better than most pixellated wannabe-retro indie games nowadays.
However, while it wears the RPG design on its sleeves, it's all merely eye candy.
You visit a single tiny hub town serving as little more than a place to shop for items, talk to every person once and be done with the RPG side of things. Gameplay-wise Wizorb is 95% Arkanoid/Breakout and 5% RPG. At most.
Unfortunately, the paddle action isn't the tightest either with some rooms taking a dreadfully long time to complete.
The magic system is neat with its fireballs and gusts of wind, but it runs dry quickly by giving you all options very early in the game. Maybe they should have saved some spells for later.

For the low price the developer is asking for it might even be worth a quick shot for diehard fans of the genre, but if you're here for the RPG aspect, don't bother. Also, I hate achievements that turn into huge grindfests. While I did get 100% achievements within a couple of hours, those last few hours had been spent with repeatedly grinding for money.

Arkanoid/Breakout clone with a fantasy story. The presentation is great (just the repeated music will eventually get on your nerves) and the controls are flawless. For the price a really great little game if you like(d) Breakout.

Whilst the premise of a Wizard who turns himself into a orb to attack his enemies by smacking into them is pretty novel for a breakout clone, the execution of the game is somewhat lackluster. There are better breakout type games out there. But the biggest problem, I think, is the music. It's... mind numbing. And in a game that demands some level of concentration, that's a problem.

Arkanoid clone with added magic? Sounds awesome! Sadly the result falls far from my expectations. Installation requires additional packages and restarts, gameplay (or physics?) is far from intuitive, some levels badly designed. Would not have played this long if I had acquired the trading cards earlier.

Breakout ad nauseam. Some levels can last at least 5 minutes. Very little variety.

The first zone of Wizorb requires you to complete twelve levels and a boss in a single sitting; if you lose all your lives or quit in the middle of it, you keep none of your hard-earned gold. Precise mouse control with left- and right-click is clearly a superior option to two-speed digital control, but the UI makes no reference to mice, instead displaying either keyboard or controller buttons. The music is droning and repetitive and doesn't stop if you alt-tab out. While these various quibbles aren't dealbreaking, the game clearly feels like a 90s era console game, but doesn't really take advantage of that fact.

On the gameplay side, hitboxes aren't nearly as clear as they should be for a genre that demands precision. Boxes, for instance, only have hitboxes on the top portion, as the ball is effectively floating off of the ground. This is probably the biggest dealbreaker, especially where enemies are likely to hover near the bottom of the level and liable to send your ball careening in a seemingly random direction.

In all, Wizorb feels like a poor PC port of a mediocre Xbox game.

I love Breakout style games. I really want to like this one for it's RPG elements. However, the level design is frustrating and needlessly difficult. I found myself getting upset more often than enjoying it.

I really tried to like this game, it was a nice idea but terrible balance in the game itself. Plus the music gets annoying as hell.
