App description: "Presto: You Are The Wand. A Magical Adventure Game For Wizards." is an elegant, unbelievable masterpiece of fun for all ages.

Those who have seen it describe it with words like: delightful, refreshing, exciting, superb, fascinating, magical, wondrous, creative, dazzling, compelling, incredible, magnificent, puzzling, curious, challenging, abstract, fabulous, amazing, whacky, whimsical, stunning, unique, unusual, surprising, stupendous, interesting, tasteful and suspenseful.

Using an open concept combined with the power of Cocos2d and Box2d physics, Presto: You Are The Wand is unlike any game you have ever seen. Each level (50 levels in total) is unique so boredom is simply not possible. Many levels are so entertaining and funny, you will want to play them over and over and over again.

Our latest iPad game has just been released in the AppStore! It is called Presto: You Are The Wand. A Magical Adventure Game For Wizards.

Presto: You Are The Wand is unlike any game you have ever seen or played. It uses the power of Cocos2d and Box2d combined with an open concept so that each level (50 levels in all) is totally unique.

I thought I would create a thread for it here because some levels are a little baffling and users may need some hints on how to get through them.

The main ingredient for Presto: You Are The Wand is to have fun.

And while we are proud of Version 1.0, there is lot of room for improvement, so please feel free to suggest new ideas or ways we can make it better.

Okay. Thanks for the feedback. Will create a gameplay video and post it here soon.

As requested, here is a video showing the gameplay. Admittedly the target age group (and their parents) for this game is probably younger than typical Touch Arcade members, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to play. Once you play it, you will appreciate the effort it took to develop, so in the meantime, please be kind. It's not a hi-powered-who-can-do-the-most-fancy-moves-shoot-run-kill type of game. It's like nothing else out there, which is already quite an achievement. Please respect it for what it is, not what it isn't.

I'm sorry...your using default assests for the gui, no transparency...you won't make a buck at the current price.

No offense but is this the first game you've ever tried to make? This looks like stuff I made in my high school programming class.

To be honest, even the younger targeted age group would find this...lacking in interest, that is, unless your true targeted age group is newborns-1yr. olds. Seriously, the app description is more like a glittering generality which doesn't seem to give the same impression in terms of actual gameplay content shown in this video.

Also, the 300MB+ file size for this app is horrendous considering it being predominately ClipArt and lines. Don't even get me started about the high pricing for this. However, I must respect the work put into development despite it only being (hopefully) 15% complete at this time.

Thank you all for your feedback. The game will improve.

@Greyskull : please explain what you mean by default assets, gui and transparency.

@senkoujin: working on reducing the file size...it will take some time.

@Zetaspawn: not the first but certainly the most challenging.

Here are some promo codes so that you can take a deeper look:
