Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards – Whizzing into Faces Now

Toby Turner, better known as Tobuscus, is a weird dude. He uses a voice somewhere between his real voice and the voice of someone just learning to speak English, and uses it to lend nascent humor to videos about video games, songs, and plenty of other subjects (provided those subjects are funny).

Now, Tobuscus and Game Mechanic Studios have teamed up to bring us Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards, a game essentially built with the intent of being a more cohesive version of Turner’s usual Tobuscus Adventures videos on YouTube.

The premise of the game is fairly similar to that of the YouTube series: Tobuscus and his friend Gabe (Gabuscus to us) are dealing with a zombie apocalypse in a horribly stupid fashion. In Wizards, Tobuscus has managed to incapacitate the only wizard who would have been able to stop the so-called “Wizard of Darkness,” and so naturally has to take his place. As a result, the player has to help Tobuscus cast “spells of murder doom” by drawing the appropriate shapes on the touch screen.

As the player progresses, they’ll be able to level up both their spells and their wizard tower, with the ultimate goal being to defeat the Wizard of Darkness and stop the zombies.

Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards was originally a game funded through IndieGoGo, and despite the large amount of money pledged over what was initially asked for, the game missed its intended release date by around a year and a half. It released as of March 19th, however, and can be picked up on iOS for $4.99 USD. You can learn more about Game Mechanic Studios from their website (but be warned, there is auto-playing music, because the studio apparently just hates visitors).
