Fairy Treasure Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room has posted a new review of Red Marble Games' Fairy Treasure. The Breakout-style game takes players on an adventure against an evil, greedy troll that has stolen great treasure from the Kingdom of Trollandia and has carefully guarded it in his cave ever since. The Game Room gave Fairy Treasure a score of 3.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Fairy Treasure surrounds the basic Breakout concept with a fantasy story set in the land of Trollandia. An evil, greedy troll has stolen treasure from the kingdom and it’s your job to recover it. To do so, you must travel along the Fairy River in your magic raft, coming up against nasty creatures of folklore like hags, goblins and such. You’ll gather magic scrolls to find hidden treasures, unlock secret areas and collect keys.

The basic gameplay is the same as other brickbashing games: You move a paddle horizontally across the bottom of the screen. You have balls that bounce upward, rebounding either against the perimeter of the game area or against bricks and other objects that take up space.

As the bricks get smashed, you collect points, and you can also grab a variety of bonuses and powerups. Bonuses—falling gems, coins and the like—will give you extra points, while powerups will imbue you with special abilities, like giving you three balls instead of just one, or extending the size of your paddle, or making the balls extra strong. (Some bricks may ordinarily take several hits to destroy.)
