We've said it before and we'll say it again, Revival Studios are pushing the Philips Videopac & Magnavox Odyssey2 to their absolute limits. Their latest homebrew hit for the 1978 system is Mage: The Enchanted Crystals, a colourful twist on the dungeon crawling genre with plenty to boot.
Similar to their last few releases, Mage: The Enchanted Crystals is being made available on a physical cartridge, dressed up in authentic looking packaging to slot into any Philips Videopac & Magnavox Odyssey2 collection. This time round, however, Revival Studios have created another version of the game for the more die hard homebrew collectors amongst us. Their limited to 20 copies collectors edition arrives in its very own treasure chest bundled with several exclusive additions. Unsurprisingly though, all 20 of these chests have been spoken for already.
The game plays out very similar to that of Adventure on the Atari 2600, only with the addition of many more enemies to be negotiating. Where the game marvels though is in the graphics department given the limitations of the 34 year old system. If anything it's safe to say that Revival Studios are becoming rather fluent with the system and how to get the most out of it.
