A fun breakout-style game in the style of an NES game with some cool mechanics (magic, powerups).

Note: This game is nearly impossible on a controller. I wouldnt recommend it that way.

I got this as part of a bundle. As of the time of this review, it's unplayable on Windows 10.

Beyond that it's just a mediocre breakout clone. It's well-polished but there isn't much gameplay there beyond the basics.

Way too shoooort!
This game is part of a dream I have : a breakout rpg. And even tho the rpg isn't much exploited here, the art is great, the retro feel is doing the job (and thx for keeping it 2D), and discovering the different areas and mobs is fun.
Then again the game lacks of real inovative features in the genre, and is short, even with the hardest difficulty.
One idea would have been to implement a level editor, and get a workshop going. Sadly the devs didn't think about those and aren't even thinking about a sequel to this pearl.
What a shame, I'd kill for a Wizorb 2 with coop and real rpg synergies!

One last bit : the easiest difficulty is ridiculously slow, so I advise buyers to start on higher ones!

Fun. Short. HARD.

This game is like breakout, but set in an old-school JRPG style environment. There is a (single) town you can walk around in, and even complete some "donation" quests there. Otherwise, the other environments are breakout-style dungeons.
This game is also pretty freaking difficult, so be prepared for that.

Hardcore, old-school block-breaking fun. Most of the time.

I disagree with the "casual" tag on this game. It's one of the more difficult Breakout-type games I've played, requiring very precise aiming in the later levels as well as when there's one block left that you need to break, nestled between unbreakable blocks.
The level design is also very unforgiving in the later stages, and if you're a score chaser you need to finish each level set ("world") in one sitting or you'll lose your score.
So if that sounds like your kinda game, read on!

What I enjoyed
  • A beautiful old-school feel to the graphics and audio.
  • Solid block-breaking play.
  • The game is enhanced by adding an upgrade shop in most levels.
  • Spellcasting helps you shoot blocks, guide the ball and more. There are more spells than you might think; check the in-game help for a full list.
  • There are varied themes for the levels grouped into different "worlds" or regions that you access on a map.
  • In between missions, you can spend your gold to help restore a village and receive rewards, as well as equip for the next "world".
What I didn't like
  • In the later levels, too many unbreakable blocks are placed in rows very close to the paddle, leading to very fast bouncing back and forth and more chance of missing the marble. This is artificial difficulty and just unfair.
  • If you go back to the map without finishing a "world", you lose all your progress in that set of levels.
  • If you save and quit the game, your level progress in the "world" is saved but your score is reset. No idea what drove this decision. It prevents short play sessions. We don't all have time to sit through a whole level set.
  • Related to the above progression issues, there is no arcade mode that lets you jump into any level you've previously completed. You have to go through the campaign.
It's difficult to decide whether to recommend this game or not. And you'll see the other Steam reviewers saying the same. It looks and sounds lovely, and the gameplay can be fun, but there are many annoyances.
Yes, recommended because there is definitely enough enjoyment for the low asking price.

This game is way too ♥♥♥♥ing hard. Who is this made for? Not for kids clearly as it's so godamn hard. Please dont waste your money on this piece of ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ing game.

Stages are 16 levels straight with only 3 continues and 2 lives to start with. You can buy more lives but they will be gone in a second.

If you like watching your stupid orb bounce around for 20 minutes waiting to hit the last brick then please buy this game. Otherwise avoid.

Story: 3/10 ist für einen Block-Breaker unwichtig
Ideen: 10/10 was meist nurnoch auf Handys Klappt ist super auf dem PC
Grafik: 4/10 sieht aus wie aus einem RPGmaker Spiel
Gameplay: 9/10 einfach zu versehen
Spielspass: 9/10 für nebenbei das perfekte Spiel

Fazit: Wizorb ist ein typisches Block-Breakerspiel was aber im Spielverlaufen fordernd und sogar teilweise Bockschwer wird, trotz allem ein wirklich gelungenes Spiel was leider nur wenigen bekannt ist.

Auf dieses Spiel bin ich aus reinem Zufall gestossen (ok, der "reine Zufall" nennt sich Werbung im Steam-Shop : ) ... ein wunderbar gemachter Breakout-Clone. Nette, verspielte Pixel Grafik, Retro Soundtrack - hier huldigt jemand äußerst gelungen den Spielen der späten 80er/frühen 90er. Meiner Ansicht nach das beste Spiel in "Breakout-Manier" seit Arkanoid, und das will wirklich was heissen, denn Arkanoid ist für mich ein echter Klassiker. Schön gemacht, Daumen hoch!

Breakout.
Schwierig wie früher.
Der RPG Teil ist ganz nett aber quasi sinnfrei.
Ich persönlich bin zu alt dafür. Da fehlen mir die Reflexe.

I really, really tried to like this game. I love the graphical style and I enjoy 'Breakout' type of games; I was hoping that this would be an evolution of them. It's not. It's slow and monotonous.

You begin in a broken town. In order to rebuild you must go into the dungeons, earn money, and donate it to the townspeople. The dungeons are different environments such as a forest, castle and mine; all are presented beautifully in an elegant SNES anime style. The style is so pretty in fact that it was the main draw for me to buy the game.

The gameplay is close to the classic Arkanoid/Breakout games. You have a paddle at the bottom of the screen that keeps a ball bouncing around on the 'table'; there are bricks on the table you must break which hold gold and various powerups that help you, or conditions that weaken your paddle. Once you break all the bricks with the ball: you win the level. If you let the ball fall out of the bottom you lose a life, once all lives are gone you restart the world unless you buy a continue with the gold you're using to rebuild the town, or buy items. There are also stores in some of the levels, bonus areas to get extra lives and items, and spells that help you speed up the process of breaking the blocks.

The problem with the game is that it doesn't deviate from the Breakout formula enough; so if you've ever played one of them then you've played a very close version of this game, and it has similar problems.

Once you've broken most of the bricks in a level, the ball tends to just bounce around missing the bricks that it's been missing since the beginning of the level, especially the bricks in the corners. This is supposed to be solved with your spells which allow you to change the angle of the ball mid-movement, a fireball spell that lets you shoot up from your paddle, and a few spells that allow you to set the ball where you want. They work for the first dungeon and that's about it. In later levels there are unbreakable blocks, blocks that take many hits to destroy, and barriers that slow your progression through levels to an eye-gouging crawl.

It's just boring. If you've scrolled to the bottom of this review for a score, it's boring/out of 10.
I wish I could tell you that the graphics are enough to purchase the game, but it's just a bore.

Please don't waste your money or time.

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.

☺ Beautiful Presentation.
☺ Classic 'Breakout' gameplay.

☹ Quite Short.
☹ Classic 'Breakout' gameplay.

The presentation of Wizorb is superb, every time I boot it up it feels like I've just stuck a cartridge into the SNES - both the visuals and the sound hit their mark (unlike the orb which is still bouncing around aimlessly). You play as a mighty Wizard who's immense magic power seems to transform him into a...stick. Well, a paddle. Seeing that his next feat of insurmountable power is conjuring a little floating orb, this isn't as useless as it sounds.

The game at it's heart is a breakout style brick breaking game where you rebound a ball using a small paddle you control into the targets until none remain. Although there are a couple of spells such as engulfing your ball in flames to pass through multiple blocks or subtly altering its direction with a breath of wind, they really don't do all that much to change up the game and crucially, don't always stop you from the dreaded 'last brick standing' challenge of rebounding around the level for a few minutes until you get lucky enough to hit that last, stubborn brick.

You're tasked with helping a small village rebuild as you venture out and defeat monsters and destroy targets of varying shapes and sizes (I'm not quite sure what great threat a bush is to the already destroyed village, but its your task to crush them into leafy pulps!). The highlight to the gameplay is the boss battles, which is a neat little twist that see's you fighting a much tougher enemy that has a few skills of their own - it's just a shame this sort of thing wasn't the norm, as other enemies simply act as mobile targets.

I played the game with a mouse (the clicky kind, not the squeaky kind) and found the controls to be smooth and responsive, although I did get a slight stutter now and then - nothing that impacted the gameplay, but it did come close.

It's hard to recommend Wizorb to all but the biggest Breakout fans as it just doesn't offer that much compared to other brick breaking games, despite the wonderful presentation. If you're a fan though, its a fair price for what's on offer.
