Tap Wizard 2: Idle Magic GameTap Wizard 2 is an incremental idle RPG with reverse bullet hell-inspired gameplay, which means our wizard gets bombarded with enemies and bullets from all sides while it automatically attacks using the abilities we’ve equipped.
Our wizard fights through waves of enemies until it eventually gets overrun and dies. Then, time rewinds and we start all over with a large damage multiplier defined by the number of monsters we killed. This loop continues indefinitely, allowing us to gradually progress further.
While our wizard handles everything on its own – even when the game isn’t open on our phone – we can also take over and manually control the movement, which comes in handy during boss fights.
Meanwhile, a crazy number of sub-systems let us speed up our progress and reset various aspects of our wizard to gain stat boosts. As just two examples, every time our staff levels up, we get to select one of three random ability power-ups, and if we choose to reset our damage multiplier, we get a huge permanent boost. Not to mention the research features, one-time-use runes, and much more.
The number of features might overwhelm, but they thankfully unlock one at a time over the first many hours of gameplay, giving the early game a great sense of constant progression. The game even has cross-platform sync between the mobile and Steam versions.
The biggest downside is that there isn’t a lot of strategy to the gameplay. Apart from selecting which abilities to equip and upgrade, we mostly just wait for the next thing to unlock.
Tap Wizard 2 monetizes through iAPs to remove the few incentivized ads and unlock permanent boosts. The monetization is relatively relaxed, however, as the currency used to unlock these and some of the convenience features can also be earned for free over time.
