About This Game

Explore, craft, and survive in this Multiplayer RPG Platformer with permanent death! Featuring many Rogue-like elements, Magicite randomly generates each underground dungeon for you and your friends to delve deep into. Chop trees, mine ores, and hunt beasts in order to collect the resources and materials you need to survive the harsh and unforgiving environment. With a ton of character traits, stats, companions, and classes, players will have a different experience each play through! Be prepared to die... A LOT.

Magicite's main influences were Monster Hunter and Spelunky. I loved the resource collection and crafting in Monster Hunter, and of course fighting giant monsters with my friends. Spelunky's brutal yet rewarding platforming was also something that I wanted to capture with Magicite.

Features:
  • Randomly Generated Dungeons - Experience a new dungeon each time you play. Expect tons of trees to chop, ores to mine, plants to harvest, and bugs to catch! Oh and giant monsters.
  • Permanent Death - The game logs all of your stats in a play through, leading the way for achievements and upgrades.
  • Crafting System - Combine any two items to create a new one! For example, Wood + Wood = Plank. There are tons of combinations to discover!
  • Combat System - If you plan on just running in and swinging you sword, you're gonna get wrecked. Take time to craft useful items and examine enemy positioning before executing a well timed attack.
  • Unlockable Races, Hats, & Companions - The more you play, more greater chance you'll unlock awesome new hats with a variety of special effects. Races and Companions can also be unlocked to provide different starting items and stats!
  • Multiplayer - Want to put your friendships to the test? This is the game to do it! Permanent death only occurs when the ENTIRE party has fallen. So if your buddy gets knocked out feel free to run over and help him back up. Or not...

Well. I guess it's about time I reviewed Magicite.

Ok, so, Magicite, is easy to pick up, and easy to play, but can be long, and quite rewarding, making this a perfect game to play, while waiting for something. It starts up easy, and you can get into the gameplay realitively quickly, so, like I said, waiting for things.

As a standalone game, however Magicite is pretty boring. Never have I really chosen to play Magicite, over something like, Rivals of Aether, when I have a lot of free time. I pretty much only play this game in League of Legends queue, so, yeah. Magicite, while it can't really hook you in like a Nuclear Throne, or Enter the Gungeon run can, it's just dumb fun. Some interesting combat, mixed with relatively fun movement makes for an OK timekiller, but there isn't really a whole lot of meat, or stuff to dig into, like game design. It's just, simple, and that's the appeal, I guess?

You could also talk about crafting, and the different skills, but they aren't explained at all, and I don't know anything about any stats, or crafting recipes, that aren't crafting tools.

Getting into the pros, well, you might have heard this before, but it's fast to boot up, and you can idly play it, while talking to your friends, and such. How about when I said it would be rewarding? Well, getting far, is fun, and finishing the game, which I haven't yet managed to do, I would imagine is a hugh sigh of relief, based on the trials you had to go through. Multiplayer... How about multiplayer? Well, it's pretty fun. If you can actually suck another friend into this path of meh decisions, where you went down, to get the decision to buy this game, and they buy the game, then multiplayer is fun.

Is it worth 10 dollars? No. If you really want to try it. Wait for a sale, like right now, the summer sale is going on, isn't that cool!?>!?>!?>
Anyways, I found it pretty OK, and I would rate 5 kazoos out of 8.

Magicite is a overwhelmingly fun game to play with friends. However, the lack of new content and various bugs in multiplayer (ie. item duplication when players stand on each other, black screen upon entering a district, etc..) make the game unenjoyable sometimes. I undestand that the developer has put a lot of work into their title Roguelands recently, but if the major bugs are fixed and new content is added the game would deserve a better rating.

-Good sides of the game------------------------------------------------------

.The game has very good graphics that fit it really well.
.The mobs (monsters) are very well designed and have good animations.
.Every new area has an unique look to it and has well fitted monsters.
.Bosses and regular mobs have good difficulty levels for each area.
.The game has a lot to do and has a lot of things to unlock.
.The game has good music that seems to fit the atmosphere.

-Bad sides of game--------------------------------------------------------------

.The attacking cycles for the mobs are a little wonky.
.It sometimes messes with you and puts a charging mob infront of you when you start.
.Selling items barley gives you anything.
.There isn't much invetory space so sometimes you have to go through lots of trouble just to pick up an item, therefore waisting time.
.There isn't mob health bars so you dont know how many time to hit it (sometimes this really messes you up).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Despite how many things this game has bad there is a lot of good going for it, so I'd recommend this to anyone interested in it. Trust me its not a waste of money.

As a frequenter of games from the rogue-like genre I know how hard it can be be to find unique rogue-like games. While Magicite is not super unique, it is a very fun and addictive game; I logged 100 hours in no time. If your looking for a fun and addictive rogue-like game, I highly reccomend this one.

Absolutely wonderful game, and is enjoyable to play with or without friends. The game has a great one life system and friends can revive. The only fault is choosing character skills. I like a specific 2 skills and it takes up to 15 minutes to get that skill because its just a button to click to get a random skillset. Besides that ONE fault this game is the best rogue-like game ive played

I've had this game for so long, but I never forgot how great it was. I have now since revisited, mostly to shake off the rust, because Sean has stated in the Roguelands 1.0 update that he will now start working on it again. This was my favorite rogue-like game for around a year, and probably what got me into this genre.

Difficult to play single-player. This one's made for multi-player... and the more the merrier. You start off with only a few points of health, so you can die very quickly if you don't have a teammate to revive you. With enough practice, it's not so difficult to solo, but starting off co-op is recommended.

A few bugs (some items do not and never will unlock, like gatherer and naming and in-game cheat) and sometimes your toon will get stuck facing backwards)(and one very large one (if too many people try to go through the door at the same time), but otherwise it's legit. As long as you're not really going for unlocking everything, it's good fun. *NOTE: must love frustration and have tenacity. You will yell at this game. A lot.

I really liked this game, but it can be a bit frustrating at times. Death is permenent, no respawning. Very frustrating.
