"Only for some"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I personally enjoyed this game. I thought it was at times cute, at times a little weird, and it also went to deep places which video games don't tend to go to. I'm talking self-referential characters realizing they're in a video game, for example. But I know for sure it won't be for everyone.

Some good points:

  • It really utilizes the unique possibilities of the DS as a console. Unlike most games I've seen for the DS, you actually use the stylus to do a range of things, such as peel stickers on and off, tap a foe, tap your own character, tap fruit off a tree, stroke a cat-dog kind of thing (this part was soooooooooo much fun!!). It also uses the two screens in a way that doesn't seem like the developers went “oh no, we've got two screens and we've designed a game for only one screen!”.
  • If you love solving puzzles and finding secret entrances, this will be fun for you
  • You sail around the world, completing side quests, and you can cook, fish and steal too (with the right costume!)
  • I only once got completely lost during the main storyline and had to look at a FAQ to save myself, so that was good
  • I liked the graphics. Depending on what you like this may or may not be good. They are very old school. The game has a real original aesthetic going on.

Some bad points:

  • When you really get into it, and I mean reeeeally, like if you're a completionist, the leveling system is incredibly complex, to the point of being annoying. If you ARE a completionist, you really want to look at a FAQ before you start playing, as you can hit some points of no return.
  • There seem to be a lot of pointless quests at first, but they're actually completed AFTER the game. Watch out! You could spend a lot of time mucking around unnecessarily when all you want to do is just finish the game.
  • Sometimes confusing. But that can be a good thing sometimes.
  • Combat system can get boring, as you just press the B button, target an enemy, and stand there hitting it. I mean, you can spice it up with your decals (usually you'll want to save those for a boss though). But on the plus side, the lack of ‘mashing’ certainly helps you avoid RSI :)

Anyway, I think this is a great game. I enjoyed it, and I am going to play it through again, this time following a guide so that I can complete it 100%. That will take me many hours, but that's another great thing about the game: replay value. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

"It's a bit plain compared to other games"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well, I loaded the game and enjoyed the introduction. That was about it. I was waiting for the images and scenes to appear that I have heard about from others but there really wasnt anything to rave about. The character is too small for my liking and there isnt much thought or strategy involved in killing foes so far. It is your standard keep pressing a button and wait for them to die scenario. It hasnt gripped me and after an hour I whipped out the game card and replaced it with another game. I may give it another go sometime later, but to me, it is reminiscent of an older type arcade game. I'm not best impressed with it but from other peoples views it maybe worth another shot before giving up on it entirely. I guess if you didnt want to think too much and wanted a basic game this would entertain. I was hoping for a little more ‘umf’ from kick off. Will replay and maybe it will grow on me!
