Bumbledore? Really?

C'mon, really? "You play as the apprentice of the great bee-wizard Bumbledore". Are you serious? This is from the guys that made Altitude, which was a decent, interesting game.

Just sue their asses Potter, Lda or whoever owns that franchise. Confusion on the marketplace, right? Bumbledore, pffft. Sue their asses for severe case of lazyness! GOD!

Bumbledore is a 100% original bee-wiza...

Wait is that a bee that is a wizard or is it a wizard who can transform into a bee?

Hopefully this will be a Fumbledore and will go on to make the developers more of a Humbledore.

Um, excuse me, but this is actually a fantastic name for a bee wizard. Also:

Now for a suitably cringe-worthy pun... everybody calm down and bee-hive themselves? Hmm, that is actual kind of a double pun. It will do for now.

EDIT: Aha! I guess you could say that you all think that Bumbledore is an a-pollen name for the character. Perfect ლ(ಠ_ಠლ).

I just beat Honeyhold Keep, and I can safely say this is the best game about a bee wizard I've ever played.

The game itself looks quite good, and I approve of more Harry Potter-inspired things as let's face it. Before Harry Potter wizards and witches were total suck. Harry Potter is a far more appealing universe.

First CBS buys Giant Bomb and now this.

I jest. I didn't even realize this was the Altitude guys. I loved that game. This, however, sounds like a doofy meeting joke that got taken too far.

Just posted my review of it. I blazed through it in an hour, but its emphasis seems to be on getting a high score for each level through precise spell placement. Although it seems geared for kids (I suspect a grade schooler would love this game), some of those last levels were getting tough and I suspect mastering some of them could be hair-pullers. Just the type of indoctrination into the chase for the high score I like.

Oh, and Bumbledore is not mentioned past the title screen, so exposure to bad puns is kept to a minimum.
