Co-op magic mayhem! Nine Parchments is a co-op action-RPG game of magic mayhem from Frozenbyte, the creators of the Trine series. A group of runaway wizard apprentices decide to skip their training to search for the Nine Parchments.

As the wannabe wizards rapidly discover powerful new spells and ignore all safety aspects, it's natural that their hasty progress results in lots of deadly accidents...

Nine Parchments (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Nine Parchments can be enjoyable in small doses with others. Playing alone can feel depressing as the grind of pressing on feels strongly palpable. There really isn't anything wrong with the mechanics since it controls nicely and feedback is satisfying. The art direction is top-notch and fantasy atmosphere has a much more colourful Magic the Gathering vibe going on. It is the sheer unimaginative level design and pedestrian scenarios that will bore most people. There is very little variation from the first stages to the end game stages and there is desperately a need for something to mix up the action.

Nine Parchments is a very interesting take on a few genres blended together. If you've ever wanted a Harry Potter game but with a Diablo influence with some Magicka thrown in, Nine Parchments is the game for you. I'm a little hesitant to recommend it as a purchase for solo players but for playing with friends, this is a whole lot of fun.

Nine Parchments Review via Nintendo Insider

Nine Parchments is a perfectly fine dungeon crawler-esque experience that sadly never really manages to deliver on its true potential. While it might tick a lot of the genre checkboxes, these ideas are never expanded upon enough to help the game truly stand out. As a multiplayer adventure, there’s definitely fun to be had in working together to tackle swarms of enemies, but alone, you’ll be hard-pressed to keep engaged through to the end credits.

Nine Parchments review – Frying sorcerers via Critical Hit

There's fun to be had here, if you're able to play it with others. Alone, Nine Parchments is a dull slog. Play with others, and it becomes an electrifying slice of pandemonium.

Nine Parchments Review via IGN

Nine Parchments' elemental magic action makes for a good co-op dungeon crawling experience. It's light on interesting loot, but big on whimsey and fast-moving action. If you plan on running through the campaign on your own, your run might be a little frustrating because you can't exploit every weakness, but having some friends join you on your quest evens the odds. But without the promise of exciting rewards for battling bosses, I soon ran out of reasons to replay.

The gameplay reminds me of Magicka which inspired me to try to get it, but I've been told by a few friends and read a good number of reviews that don't recommend this game at all.

I was really excited when this game was announced. The look reminded me of Diablo. But then I downloaded the demo. Kinda downhill from there. Visually looks good but the gameplay was dull and boring.
