Rings of the Magi: Grand Master Edition is a game that combines science fiction and
fantasy genres with a good, old fashioned puzzle game. That is the premise of the game,
but it is a puzzler more than anything else. With beautiful graphics and sweet sounds,
Rings of the Magi: Grand Master Edition is a puzzle that any gamer should love.
The developers of Rings of the Magi: Grand Master Edition decided to give it a
fantasy feel by throwing in a detailed introduction explaining the mystical origins of the
game. At first, I thought it was a slightly over-the-top. This was a puzzle game after all. It
was not King's Quest. This feeling soon went away, however. The "legend" behind the
game actually made it more fun to play. So, the ploy worked -- at least on me.
The graphics in Rings of the Magi: Grand Master Edition are simply amazing. The
animation and board textures are as good as in any other game released for the PC in the
mid-1990s. The boards can be simple or they can have elaborate stone textures. The
animation sequences before and during game play are spectacular.
The sound in Rings of the Magi: Grand Master Edition is another home run. It has
great music, great sound effects, and realistic voice effects. Taking a hint from Tetris,
the developers at Cytherian Adventures knew that good music can draw gamers deep
into a puzzle game.
Game play is fun and super-addictive. It takes a while to get the hang of the game, but
when you get it down, you will find it hard to stop. It took me several plays before I
realized how to eliminate four rings of the same color. (Hint: Do them two at a time. All
four cannot be done at once.)
Have some eye drops handy. You just might get stuck on this game. It is a good one.
Graphics: Amazing, especially for 1995
Enjoyment: Highly addictive
Replay Value: Game save feature is excellent
In this top-down perspective of a 'board' game, you have colored rings (blue, green, yellow, red and purple ones), and you must join them together, so they can disappear, and you get the points for their disappearance. If you have, for example, let's take it three rings, and you join two of the same color, you won't have match for the third one, so you won't be able to finish the level, unless you undo your move. Arrows on the table buttons shows in which direction(s) will rings be moved one square, and that's basically how you move the rings. Every level is accompanied by a very nice tune, and there are different settings for expert players, or for the beginners. The game also includes its easy to use editor for the levels.
