The Magic Hammer
How many of the millions of readers in Family Friendly Gaming
Universe have heard of Minecraft Story Mode? How many of the millions of
readers in Family Friendly Gaming Universe heard what a disappointment
Minecraft Story Mode has been? Do not let your heart be troubled my
friends. Why not? Because The Magic Hammer is more of a Minecraft story
than Minecraft Story Mode.
Players start out with a Camelot like moment in The Magic Hammer. This magic hammer is stuck in some rocks. You take your turn to pull it out. The magic hammer comes out, and starts talking to you. It is very low on power, and needs your help. So we go to boneyards and fight enemies. Dispose of a certain number that appears on the screen and then a boss comes out to fight you. These bosses are invulnerable until they attack. Then they are dizzy and you can get some hits in.
I am confused as to why there is not any ESRB descriptors in The Magic Hammer. We kill off plenty of creatures in The Magic Hammer. From skeletons, to zombies, to wizards, and warriors. Players can also unleash magical attacks as well as physical ones. And the ESRB was not capable of finding one word to describe any of the violent content in The Magic Hammer. No wonder families consider the ESRB to be worthless and meaningless.
The Magic Hammer has nice music, and some neat blacksmithy battle sounds. The maps in The Magic Hammer are huge. Putting other Minecraft like games to shame. Whether they are on the hand helds or the home consoles. The Magic Hammer is not a large (in terms of memory) download either. So families can download this game without fear of facing Internet usage fines. The Magic Hammer is a game that deserves to be provided in a physical copy format and sold in retail stores. This hand held game is that solid.
I hope there are sequels to The Magic Hammer in the near future. Mojang should have worked with Wobbly Tooth on Minecraft Story Mode. It would have turned out better than what Telltale Games came up with. There is a creative mode in The Magic Hammer if you want to fly and explore the massive worlds. This 3DS game contained way more content than I was expecting. It was a real pleasure to play and review The Magic Hammer. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a downloadable version of this game.
