So despite the fact that we all have Magicka, I hadn't heard of or seen any buzz about Magicka 2 on our forums. I got this game as a gift in the Yogscast Humble Bundle and while I'm only on the second level or so its already proving to be everything I would have wanted in a sequel to Magicka.

To wit:

- Same style of humor

- Same basic gameplay

- The dashingly handsome Vlad is definitely not a vampire.

 

But they've also added a few Quality of Life improvements.

-The biggest one. In single player, you now have a familiar (a navi-style fairy) who follows you around and resurrects you when you die. You can then use the wizard revive spell to revive this familiar. Just like that, the single-player gameplay opens up a ton!!!

- There is a "quick-spell" bar to which you can assign 4 spells without being required to constantly key in their elemental combinations and hit spacebar (they just cast as if you'd done all that instead). So push, haste, some AoE dps spell, and Revive by default.

- If you self-cast heal, you can just hold down the self-cast button to continually keep casting it till your'e full-healed rather than needing to re-queue up the life element.
