    Been playing for 15-20 minutes right now. But I don't see any fighting right now. The story on the other hand is quite nice, as well as the game music.

    SPOILER (ABOUT THE GAMEPLAY AND SMALL PART OF THE BEGINNING)
    You the main character Vicky have to save this girl in white Tanya, you go off to find a "magic board". The game play is simply tap a character (or something else) and then use the magic board on them/it. You use the screen to draw out the lines to cast the spells.
    EDIT: Thats all I've experienced at the moment, until a battle or anything appears then I'll let you know

    Guess so. But with a rather interesting story.. well kinda interesting for me right now. The story is split into chapters if you wanted to know.

    The game is kind of amusing...There doesn't seem to be a "danger" factor though, so there aren't any worries about dying (at least as far as I have gotten). If anything, this is probably closer to a visual novel than anything else (sure you can move around...but meh, the most you get from that is seeing your character move and collecting the items).
    The only thing I find awkward is that ALL of the females look like loli's (even the teacher) except for the grandmother...

    Hm.. I'm pretty annoyed you have to use the d-pad to move but use the stylus to interact with objects... that's pretty uncomfy for my hands. [​IMG]

    I want to move with the stylus too.. [​IMG]

    Hm, wanted to try it out, but if the voices were removed and all the characters got renamed... nah.
    Too bad they squished everything into the arm9, I doubt someone will find out how to undo that stuff...

    Not a bad game, but the saving system isn't the best. The game is divided into chapters and you can only save when prompted at the end of a chapter.

    Well, I've played through about 3 chapters now. At first I thought it was an RPG game with HP and all that, but it's actually a simple and cute adventure game with great music and nice graphics. Although as of now most of the gameplay is running around on errands and casting magic by drawing lines, shapes and whatnot on a board. It's VERY kiddy, but it's not a bad game at all IMO.

    Well, as promised here are my initial impressions:

    - I'm on chapter 4 so far and there's no combat. In fact there's very little anything, it's generally just 'go here, cast spell, next chapter'.
    - The story is very child-friendly. It's almost like a shovelware game, but it doesn't earn the 'temp seal of turd.
    - It's by no means a bad game. Granted it is very childish and virtually plays itself, but there's something compelling about the story. I'm actually curious to see how it turns out, therefore I'll continue playing.
    - The graphics are actually pretty decent. There's a scene right at the start where Vicky keeps getting knocked to the floor and the expression on her face is kinda funny. The 'sad puppy' look. And the squirrel in chapter 2 and cat in chapter 3 have taken the cutesy kiddy friendliness level to well over 9000.
    - For a kiddy game the plot is presented in a kiddy way but deals with more grown up issues like the class struggle between the rich people who can afford witch school and the poor people who live in perpetual shadow. One key point of the plot so far is whether magic should be used to help people or simply sealed away to end the class conflict. I'm not sure how it'll pan out in the end, thus I keep playing.

    Final words? It's not a bad game, but don't go in there expecting any grand sweeping RPG tale of heroism and sacrifice. Go in expecting something akin to Animal Crossing or the wizard variation which I can't remember the name of, and you should be fine. With any luck I can get it finished in time to delete it to make space for MegaMan Zero Collection. I wouldn't go as far as to say I actively recommend this title, but if you're curious you may as well check it out, it's harmless.

    Damn. I thought it looked interesting but your description, Blaze, really says otherwise for me. Natsume games are so hit or miss for me. Ah well. Maybe my sisters will enjoy this one.

    lol that, but hey the bgm is really nice though.. just imagine that every characters can talk.. (though its really hard to imagine on it) that will solve the problem or maybe play the japanese game instead, its really nice that every characters and other NPC can do giggling and such when you talk to them..
