Carbon Studio, the Poland-based studio behind PC VR games The Wizards (2018) and Alice VR (2017), just brought a new single-player game to Oculus Go, Gear VR, and Xiaomi Mi VR. Dubbed The Wizards: Trials of Meloria (2018), the game looks to replicate some of the spellcasting fun of its big brother, The Wizards.
Using Oculus Go or Gear VR’s 3DOF motion controller, you cast spells, deflect oncoming attacks, and battle against trolls and sword-wielding goblins. The game is a completely new magical adventure set in the same fantasy world, and is developed from the ground-up for mobile VR.
The game boasts four elemental spells ( Lightning, Fireball, Arcane Shield, and Arcane Missiles), each with their own unique conjuring gestures. A leveling and spell upgrading system allows you to become more powerful as you battle across the game’s three original levels, which take you to scenic landscapes and dark dungeons. Carbon Studio says two more levels are due out soon.
In the game’s ‘Trial of Fate’ mode, you’re given a number of enemies to slay, and have to complete various challenges set before you to earn points. The game’s other mode, ‘Trial of Persistence’, sets you against an endless stream of baddies until you’re eventually killed, and comes with optional objectives for extra points.
While it’s a single-player game, The Wizards: Trials of Meloria lets you keep tabs on the greater community with its online leaderboard.
