    It's a port of a PC point-and-click adventure game. I played a little bit of the PC version, it actually not bad for an adventure game.

    I see it listed as "Sacrab" on a number of sites, but common sense and the boxart say "Scarab".
    So... I'd fix that if I was able..

    Not gonna try it but it seems to have a good concept
    They need to be a little more careful on the storyline of such games

    Oh hey this title sounds really familiar... I remember looking at the website, wasn't this supposed to be out like a year ago or something? I remember looking for it in the high street and finding nothing. It looks good, but the other reviews are a tad worrying.

    About the subtitles, suck it up. We've been spoilt in English speaking countries, if you think about it we kind of take it for granted that everything's in our language. Besides, when games do get translated you all complain and jump through hoops to put the Japanese audio back in, this is no different [​IMG]

    It locks up after the final cutscene of Chapter III on my M3Real (tried it with iTouch, Sakura and M3Real). Never had a problem with any other game.

    Could someone please post a savegame which starts at Chapter IV?

    EDIT: Tried it with no$gba and I get the same error there.

    I think this is going to be released in full English at some point:

    "The voice acting is actually pretty decent, too, although the script is often clumsy and jokes fall flat on more than one occasion. We can only assume that something has been lost during the translation from German to English."

    Taken from:

    Sounds like they've reviewed an English copy to me.

    It's music to my ears because even if this game isn't exactly 'Maniac Mansion 3' it's nice to have a proper point and click game on the DS.

    It's a sound bug.

    - Run the game
    - Choose "Option"
    - Set the sound to 0 (zero)
    - Begin a New Game
    - Play until the final cutscene of Chapter III...

    ...& enjoy! [​IMG]
