Noita review | PC Gamer

Deep in the murky crevices of Noita, within one of the rest areasinterstitial respites between its infernal biomes, I absent-mindedly purchased a spell modifier I didn’t fully understand. One of the core facets of this wonderful, maddening roguelike is the many ways you can alter your magic wands. With clever min-maxing and a little bit of exploration luck, you can become a true master of arcane prowess. But there is no safety net if that experimentation goes awry, or if you’re not paying attention. And so, I strapped this particular modifier to a wand that shoots a comically large spiral razorblade. I pointed to a distant wall, and clicked. The razorblade shot out towards the bricks, immediately cranked a U-turn, and plowed into my wizard at full-speed, killing me instantly. 


What is it? A wizardy, spell-slinging roguelike

After doing my research, I believe the modifier I attached to that wand was called “Boomerang,” and according to the greater Noita community, it’s pretty much useless unless paired with various healing spells. That’s the thing with Noita: Even the power-ups are conspiring to kill you.
