Wizards of Waverly Place has a new DS game called Spellbound? Sign me up! Well, sign my daughter up anyway; she loves the TV show. Her big thing is Harry Potter right now, and frankly it’s a bit dark for somebody her age. Plus, it’s a Disney game and that means family friendly, in my book.
So, I was pretty excited to get a copy from the publisher.
In case you hadn’t heard of the show but are looking for a good present for a grandkid or kid or friend, here is a brief synopsis of Wizards of Waverly Place:
“Wizards of Waverly Place is about three young wizards, Alex, Justin, and Max and their magical life on Waverly Place in New York. The series follows their lives at school, at home with their parents Theresa and Jerry, and at the Waverly Sub Station.” (source)
This game should be a great gift for anyone who enjoys the show. It would also be good for someone who likes a mystery. I’ll write a full review in a few days.
Here is the full news release for the game.
