Skorecery is a fast-paced mystical/sporty local multiplayer game for 2 to 4 players. It’s like a mystical version of Fifa street, in that you can bounce the ball off of any part of the map to shoot your opponent’s Runes. The only ploy with all this sorcery is that you must remember to defend your own runes with smart gameplay, tight controls, and powerful spells. Skorecery is a mixture of brain testing controls and addicting head-to-head arcade modes bring an intense gaming experience to your gaming nights.
Skorecery is a mystical spin on a pinball type game, spread over 4 realm’s all ranging in different background, individually bringing their own creepy environment to the game. You can pick from 5 different mysteries master of Skorecery, each having their own unique spell and look to the game. Now if that isn’t enough for you, Skorecery has thrown 6 combinable curses into the mix. This spices things up and makes those matches that bit more desirable to gamers.
What I was rather fond of is the setting for the game itself and the chosen characters, its a real dark and dingy setting with a soundtrack made for royalty with this game. It’s almost too perfect how well they all slot together. Only issue is where there are only 4 runes, it can become repetitive and may even turn a few gamers to think it’s quite boring.
Now, what I found to be a massive pro for this game is that it’s easy to pick up and get stuck into. Playstation games as of late are very much online focus and its often quite difficult to find a game that isn’t solely online focused, sometimes it is nice to share a game or two with a friend or flat mate. Now this game is perfect for this as you can play have 4 players on a local basis.
The controls themselves will take a bit of getting use to and if you’re playing with friends, may take a few rounds of not being too harsh and going straight in for the kill. I often found myself forgetting that after launching the ball and it hitting my target that I had to catch it again before moving onto my next target. I kept thinking that it would naturally be ready to bounce onto my next target. This doesn’t stop the game itself being an enjoyable experience as its quick to get addicted too and easy to pick up and play at any point.
Where the game is so heavily focused on the local multiplayer aspect it is somewhat difficult to play on your own as I found myself going the full way through a tutorial and then not having much else to move onto. Obviously, there are modes you can do on your own but the computer itself puts very little effort if any at all to putting up a challenge.
As everyone knows I do love a game night with friends and family so this is ideal for these scenarios as you can challenge your friends to become one and only Skorecerer of the Sofa.
I would highly recommend this game as it’s definitely worth picking up and will definitely worth the purchase. It will bring out an enjoyable competitive side you never knew you had.
- Local Multiplayer aspect the best I’ve seen for some time
- Dark dingy setting with a beautiful soundtrack to accommodate this
- Real Mixture of Spells makes battles more interesting
- Single player mode isn’t very entertaining and not at all challenging
- Only 4 levels to play so some may find it a bit repetitive
- Again maybe a few more characters would have been a good mix
