If you’re looking for one of those odd but compelling niche titles, Spellspire may be for you. It’s just launched on Switch and provides you with a twist on the usual RPG genre.
When you play the game, you take on the role of a “tiny wizard” who’s working his way up a 100 level tower. Along the way, you’ll encounter monsters to slay and loot. Sounds like a typical RPG, right? The difference you’ll quickly discover is that your spells are predicated on words. Duh, amiright? The longer the word, the more dangerous the spell.
Here’s what 10tons LTD. says about their game:
Finnish game developer 10tons Ltd. announced today the wordgame and action role playing game mashup Spellspire is now available for Nintendo Switch™. The game is priced $9.99 USD.
”Spellspire is another unique title we’re tremendously happy to make available. It’s wonderfully accessible, regardless of whether you’re a native English speaker or not. It’s great even for younger gamers looking to sharpen their spelling skills.” says Tero Alatalo, CEO of 10tons Ltd.
