News - Wizard's Hat and Charma: The Land of Enchantment!

Today we shift gears from the recent fare with some new popper / shooter games!

This game is some kind of bubble-shooter / Match-3 hybrid. You have a shooter at the bottom into which you suck pieces from the board. Then, you shoot those pieces back into a location of your choice in an attempt to break groups of the same item.

In terms of quality, this game seemed lacking to me. It didn't have any draw for me personally, but you might think it's awesome.

To give it a try, click the image below:

Every time I play a new game from developer Artogon, I am pleased to see that they consistently create the best eye candy on the casual games market. All graphics and animations are shiny and smooth. I love the attention they apply to the details.

Charma: The Land of Enchantment is a marble popper variant from this great company who gave us Treasure Seekers. The game has high-quality backdrops similar to those found in Luxor 3. But in Charma, the "marbles" are actually cute little fuzzy creatures called "charmies."

Instead of launching charmies from a shooter, you clear the board by swapping charmies. It's a simple two-click system. So, if you click a red charmie and swap it with a yellow charmie, and they both complete color groups of 3 or more, both sets of charmies disappear.

Various power-ups appear from time to time, and you can earn trophies for accomplishing various feats. The challenge really kicks in when the charmies disappear beneath scene objects like palm leaves and bridges. Until they come out from under those objects, you can't click them!

This game is challenging and a fun new take on marble poppers. My kids liked watching this one. I recommend you give this one a try. You won't be disappointed. $2.99 today only!
