Windows Phone Game Review: Mage in Hat

Mage in Hat is a fast paced, action game for your Windows Phone that is a little on the surprising side. The game's story line has an evil sorcerer stealing great spheres of the elements and it is your job to defeat the evil sorcerer's bosses and eventually the sorcerer himself to return the stolen spheres.

Follow the break to see what impression the Elements Case made.
