Square Enix’s “Wizardlings” Trademark Was For An iPhone RPG


Earlier in the year, we discovered a Square Enix trademark for something called “Wizardlings”. This week, we know what Wizardlings is—it’s a role-playing game for iOS devices, and Square describe it as a “casual tap adventure RPG”. Here’s a trailer:



The reason it’s a “tap adventure” is because you tap tiles of darkness to reveal the world around you. Uncovering tiles reveals flowers, trees, buildings and other objects. Some of these can be used as ingredients to create powerful spells. Uncovering tiles also reveals monsters that you have to fight in order to restore light to the world.


Wizardlings has five different magic element that can be used in combat: Fire, Water, Charge, Air and Holy. The game is free-to-play but is supported by micro-transactions.
