Magicka is a satirical action-adventure game set in a rich fantasy world based on Norse mythology. The player assumes the role of a wizard from a sacred order tasked with stopping an evil sorcerer who has thrown the world into turmoil, his foul creations besieging the forces of good.
Players will be able to combine elements to cast spells, wreaking havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness. They will also be able to team up with friends and fight their way through the campaign, or test their skills in the magickal arts through other challenging modes.
In the challenge mode, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.
Requires Steam account for game installation and activation.

The game has tons of pop-culture references and the dialogue spoken by the NPC's is a mixture of Swedish and Gibberish that sounds pretty funny if you ask me.
Movement consists of left-clicking where you want your character to move to while you use the q-w-e-r and a-s-d-f keys to cast your spells. Spells can be cast in four different ways: 1. Cast on your sword/weapon to enchant it with the selected spell. 2. Cast on yourself 3. Cast as an Area-of-Effect (AOE) spell towards your front only 4. Cast as an AOE spell surrounding you.
The elements (water, life, shield, cold, lightning, arcane, earth, fire) can be mixed and matched. There are also two hidden elements (ice - mix cold and water, and steam - mix water and fire). Stacking elements causes spells to become bigger/more powerful, and also causes your character to move slower when you have multiple elements queued up.
There also exist special spells called Magicks. These spells are found in spell books and once learned require the space bar to cast. They include Haste (makes you run fast), Teleport (duh), and Lightning Bolt (a devastating spell that kills nearly anything in game in one or two hits).Read more ›
As for the game itself, which is the only source of my star score, it can be great fun but has a fair share of flaws. If you're interested in trying out novel game mechanics, the combat system can provide fairly constant novelty throughout the game. Try not to let yourself get stuck using just a single tactic or two. Be creative and the combat can end up feeling surprisingly fast and fluid. Teaming up with a partner can definitely increase the potential combat shenanigans. Steam does have a demo for the title, so you can try it for yourself a bit, but I think the demo doesn't quite live up to the full game.
Others can review this game more fully than myself, and have. I suggest you check their reviews out.
It requires a Steam account. I'm not a fan of Steam, but I'm in the minority.
The reason it didn't get 5 starts is it's a resource hog. My laptop with an i5 2410M, GeForce GT 540M, and 8 GB of RAM has trouble handling it. It became playable when I dropped the resolution to 800x600, but it still has slowdowns during battles. For reference, this laptop handles Starcraft 2 on default settings and Minecraft on the highest settings without any problems.
Most cut scenes do not display and I get a black screen instead.
Lacking an experience/leveling mechanic, skill points, inventory, or currency, this game focuses on its unique combat system comprised of combining 8 elements: water, life, shield, cold, lightning, arcane, earth, and fire. After conjuring a mix of 1 to 5 elements, you release the spell in 1 of 4 ways: a projectile/beam/wall, a cast-on-self, an area of effect, or cast on your melee weapon (think enchanting). Want to make a rock wall that freezes enemies? Combine cold + earth + shield. Want to make a far reaching, electrocuting steam beam? Combine water + fire (steam) + arcane + lightning. Also, as you progress in the campaign you unlock special spells like summons, teleportation, blizzard, lightning storms, etc. Some of these really become necessary to survive in the later levels, where the enemies move quickly and pack a punch.
The tricky part is that friendly fire is always on, which makes for some hilarious and frustrating experiences. All in all, this is a fun and short adventure for the relatively low price. Just make sure you grab 1-3 online friends for the best experience.Read more ›
