Being a student of mystical arts is hard work, doubly so if you are Belle MacFae - a freshman student at Hagmore School of Magic. The teachers and the staff are mean, her friends are few, and her grades suck. Worst of all – Belle has a tendency to be at exactly the wrong place at exactly the wrongest time. Like tonight, for example, when she stayed up late to practice her fire magic, but instead got framed for upsetting an ancient ritual. And what better way is there to punish an unlucky first-year student, than to charge her with an impossible task on the worst night of the year? Re-create the Walpurgisnacht Brew, or be expelled, and with all manner of spooks taking over the school, expulsion is starting to sound better by the minute. Inspired by games like Slightly Magic, Puff in Dragonland, and the Dizzy series, Mystik Belle is a hybrid of a classic point-and-click adventure and a modern metroidvania. While playing it you can expect to do some of the following: Get hopelessly lost in the massive school building and its surrounding areas. Find items and solve inventory puzzles. Or just clog up your pockets with useless junk. Interact with other inhabitants of Hagmore. Learn clues, help them out, ruin their day with angry flies. Fight through hallways infested by over 60 unique monster types. Defeat 8 bosses. Learn new magical and not-so-magical abilities. Ogle at retina-burningly colorful pixel art. Punch Cthulhu in the face.

As someone who grew up adoring the Dizzy series, I definitely got a kick out of Mystik Belle's whimsical trip down memory lane. Props should also been given for some lovely colourful sprites, cute characters and nostalgic tunes from yesteryear. But it is certainly a short trip down said lane, and one which will present the majority of gamers with very little resistance.

Fans of the genre (and Sega platformers of old) will find Belle and her world bewitching.

A whimsical and charming take on the Metroidvania formula, Mystik Belle's infusion of puzzle solving elements make it feel much fresher than many of its genre stablemates.

In the end, Mystik Belle is a decently fun game that has a few issues when it comes to the action more than anything. Luckily, the puzzles and item trading are the main focus of the game, and it is the best part of the entire experience.
