Magrunner: Dark Pulse Press Reviews
July 12, 2013
Welcome to the tenth edition of the Magrunner Development Diary. With more than 3 weeks since the Magrunner: Dark Pulse PC release, we are happy to share the main impressions of the game, left by an honorable gaming press and talented journalists. And I am thrilled and amazed by the review requests we have had and are still having with Magrunner. It is probably our first game that has been discussed that much by the press. A project that started almost 3 years ago as a small indie game has evolved into a huge success as related by Thomas Brammertz, contributor for Gamers.de.
The Metacritic page is currently featuring a 70 score that is based on the mixed and average reviews coming from 18 critics; while there are many more reviews that have come to our attention. Of course, we read and watch each and every review very attentively. Thus I would like to use this 10th update of the DevBlog to share what the press is saying about the game.
Magrunner exceeded the expectations of an Examiner.com reviewer as he gave it 10 out of 10!
The game surprised Tony “ChaingunPope” Wilson from FrontTowardsGamer, as he mentions it among the best PC titles he’s recently played: ‘Developer Frogwares struck gold here. Even though I felt like I had to blunder my way through a few puzzles, Magrunner: Dark Pulse hit all the right notes. Too bad those notes summoned the squid-faced god of the apocalypse.’
‘Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a fantastic puzzle game and a unique experience for any not familiar with Lovecraftian horror’ says www.spiderduck.net with a 9 out of 10 rating for the game. ‘This is a must play for fans of puzzle games and it would be enjoyable to all but those who loathe the genre.’
Game difficulty that ramps up very quickly prevented Marcus Jones from selectbutton.com to rate Magrunner 9 out of 10, so its 8.5!
Its 8 out of 10 by OnPause.org saying that Magrunner is a solid game that will be enjoyed by puzzle game enthusiasts. CramGaming and Cheatmasters also rate Magrunner 8 out of 10 because it plays really great.
It is natural that there are some common lines for all the reviews. And here is my favorite collective comment that says ‘Magrunner: Dark Pulse is highly recommended’ by twinfinite.com, spiderduck.com, pcgmedia.com, selectbutton.com, culturemass.com and many other gaming portals and websites!
So for those of you who somehow did not play Magrunner yet, please do! Meanwhile we keep working on Magrunner: Dark Pulse release for PSN and XBLA and the MAC version of the game! That’s right guys, you will be able to play Magrunner on your sleek computers :-)
