Magic Scroll Tactics is a side-scrolling tactical RPG where height is key. But be warned, simply holding the high ground won't ensure victory! Raining arrows down on your hapless foes is only one part of this simple yet deep strategy game; you'll need to master a wide variety of abilities and units if you wish to conquer your perilous foes. And who are these foes, you ask? Why, ancient wizards, greedy pirates, and more! As the Summoner, Nash, team up with a young priestess to vanquish the diabolical forces of darkness. Only under your expert guidance will these two brave heroes be victorious!

Magic Scroll Tactics Critic Reviews

Unfortunately, presentation does matter, and I found it far too hard to care about anything going on in this game precisely because, for the most part, Magic Scroll Tactics looks like a game where the developer just forgot to replace all the in-development placeholder art with the proper visual elements. Coupled with a narrative that's quite unforgivable for a JRPG, and it's a game that deserves a sequel that can properly realise its ambitions.

I commend the team behind Magic Scroll Tactics for trying out a more unique perspective in their Tactical RPG, but it didn’t turn out swimmingly in execution. The jump from 3D to 2D sidescrolling voids a lot of the things that make the traditional tactical RPG great, turning the majority of your playthrough into a rushfest rather than a genuinely methodical one. That’s not to say that more depth can’t be achieved from the sidescrolling perspective – it’s just not present here. That lack of consistent difficulty will ultimately deter many hardcore tactical RPG fans from giving it a go, and although it is more newcomer-friendly because of that, the massive spikes in difficulty in the later portion of the game might even frustrate those people. It is not a bad choice by any means – just know what to expect going into it.
