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.

Really beautiful twinstick shooter. Best played in co-op with other adults. Not child friendly, unless your child is a monster at video games. Quite a bit of replay ability, especially if you're into hardcore runs.

To that end, my recommendation for Nine Parchments is a tentative one. If you’ve got a crew you can recruit for retrieving all those missing spells, you’re going to have a fabulous time. However, if you’re going to go alone, I just can’t endorse this game the same way. Like the old man in the cave, my advice is simple: It’s dangerous to go alone. Take a few friends with you and Nine Parchments will be a real blast.
Nine Parchments, though wielding action RPG elements, works best as a party game. There are chaos and comedy to be had when you have three other friends sharing the screen, combining spells, chucking heals, and being sure not to stand in the fire. All of these mechanics combined with a lighthearted story lend themselves to a laugh-filled-couch-co-op game that should not be played alone.
Nine Parchments is a solid twin-stick, isometric, Action RPG with some great multiplayer fun. As a single player title, it does begin to feel a bit repetitive but this is offset by the exceptionally fun multiplayer. If you own a Switch or PC, or other console and are looking for something to scratch that twin-stick shooter itch but with a magical twist, Nine Parchments is definitely worth checking out.
