Over 60 levels of enemies and obstacles will challenge players seeking to free Gorudo! Hidden doors! Monstrous adversaries! Magical powers! Horrible curses! Be ready for what is unleashed in the brick breaking world of Wizorb!

“In 2011, when Jean-François Major, Justin Cyr and I founded Tribute, we started to work on what initially was a simple game idea with an interesting twist, taking it from a fun and promising concept to a fully-fledged game”,  said Co-Founder and Game Director Jonathan Lavigne.  “Building a company on top of that was a lot of work, but Wizorb was the ideal first game for us to tackle; it was reasonable in scope and its design defined what would be known as the ‘Tribute Games house style’”.

“Wizorb holds a very special place in our hearts”, added Tribute Co-Founder and President Jean-François Major. “As our first Tribute title, we set out to showcase that we were serious and capable of making games our way. And today, thanks to the Switch’s features, we feel the game found its true home”
