Magipanels is the latest Game Boy title from Incube8 Games. The physical release has already sole out and is set for release in March. I had a quick go and although the build I played was not complete this is looking like a wonderful little puzzler, perfect for the Game Boy. Developer, Bownly, have created a simple but addictive tile matching game. You slide blocks of dice around to match them up. Make too many mistakes and its game over!
Did you pick this one up on the pre-order? If not, you may have to wait for a second pressing of the game. What is true is the wonderful news that Game Boy titles are selling like hotcakes and the whole retro scene is buzzing right now. I hope to bring a full review soon. Incube8 have released the following details:
Magipanels is a talent show-type event that attracts various magic users from all across the world. Contestants compete to demonstrate their magical prowess, the process of which is abstracted out into the form of the puzzle gameplay: the Magipanels grid, a device designed to be manipulated by channelling one’s magic into it.
Magipanels is a modern take on the match 3 genre that feels right at home on the Nintendo Game Boy. Manipulate panels on the grid one column or row at a time to form matches and earn a high score, while utilizing character specific abilities to radically alter the grid in your favour!
