The Magicians Handbook Cursed Valley
The most accurate description I can come
up with for The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley is a mix between Harry
Potter and a hidden object game. Players find things in screens, and
when they find enough they have access to a new magical spell. As in
witches, and warlocks. The oddest thing about this iPad game is I am
playing it around New Years. I can see this as a Halloween game.
The level of detail in the images and screens in The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley is exceptional. Many of the images I saw were dark in tone and theme. Things like skulls, shrunken heads, and the like. Not the kind of a game that you want to play late at night. Certain odd words put together as part of magical spells are also a part of The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley.
I do not dabble in any kind of witchcraft so I have no idea how authentic The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley is. It might have magical spells that are complete gibberish or it might be telling people to serve Satan. I have no idea. The music in The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley is also dark and moody. This is another aspect of The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley that makes me think of Halloween.
The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley includes a longer or shorter version of the game. This is an interesting feature to offer iPad gamers. How deep do you want to go into this fantasy world? There are thirteen levels in The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley to explore, and twelve mini games to play between levels.
The touch screen aspect of The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley works flawlessly. Some images are very dark and difficult to see. The hint mechanism helps in this area. Then players have to be patient and wait for it to rebuild. Mini games between levels can be skipped for those who do not want to figure it out.
Magic is an extremely controversial topic. I have never been comfortable with it. I do not see The Magician's Handbook Cursed Valley as teaching people magic, sorcery or witchcraft. But the game is very friendly to it. In fact the main character leaves his life of boredom to go to the Cursed Valley. We all know there are people who will make stupid decisions like that. I do not see such a trip as better than the real world.
