Spellspire is one of those mobile games ported to console, from those guys at 10tons ltd. It is also one of those they ported very nicely. It feels just as fun, and well rounded on Xbox One as it does anywhere. It is a very relaxing game, that you can spend a evening on, or any time you don't feel like putting attention into a heavily story driven game you have to give full attention. I play this a lot while i am talking to friends in a party, and I don't feel like taking a lot of attention away from our conversations.I am not saying it is easy though. Spellspire can get very challenging depending on the level of your vocabulary.
Spellspires plays like an adventure game of scrabble. You have a bunch of letters, and you have to make up words out of them. The bigger the word the higher of value attack it does on enemies. You make your way up a huge tower, loaded with enemies and bosses,and it only gets harder the higher you go. You can purchase different weapons and armours though, that count as leveling up. You get the money to purchase these from loot dropped by enemies, and found in chests.
Everything about this game though is a lot of fun, and I really can't find much negative to say about it. Rather you got on console, or picked up in a app store, i could see any scrabble or adventure fan getting very addicted to its charm. Delightful music, crazy cool characters and enemies, and colorful backdrops spells a blast to be had.
Pros; Challenging word puzzles
Tough and gnarly looking enemies and bosses
Wonderful sounds and music
Wonderful action RPG design
Loads of loot
Cons: Level progression a tad difficult
Makes you grind levels over to really advance
Overall: 7.5 Spellspire is a blast in small doses, can become repetitive. If played properly though can be a lot of fun for a long time to come.
