Very cool game! Adventure, battles, friendships, a bit of greatness!
I've played every English release of Kemco's games, and this one is awesome. I really enjoy how you can adjust how often you fight monsters in the caves and dungeons. The only thing that I would like to see more of in Kemco's games, is items hidden in pots or cabinets in houses. Something similar to Machine Knight.
The monster battling is excellent. The skill/magic systems have been vastly improved. Another huge benefit are the curio stations in the dungeons, where you can adjust encounter rate, and set up battles right there without having to walk around. You can also completely turn off the random battles once you've reached the second station. This makes dungeon questing a way lot more fun and easier. Adding to the ease of battle is the 2D graphics, which makes transition screens and load times a breeze. You still have to page through paragraphs of pre-teen superfluous verbage and romantic innuendo, but there are some decent boss battles, at least on hard level. Overall, a lot more fun and easy to play than past iterations.
Kemco and EXE Create have another winner with this one. I rate it as their best RPG so far, with a great storyline and solid gameplay which reminds me a lot of Antiquia Lost and the Asdivine series. The difficulty level is fairly easy, so anyone with JRPG experience should probably choose 'hard' for a good challenge. The battle system includes classics such as weapons combining and customising and fruit growing to boost stats, as well as enhanced features such as new combos and support from buddies. Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
I like the game but once I used the potion for extra exp, every little step I took when I wasn't in town I went straight to battle. Are you guys able to fix this? I can't walk in the forest or cave without going into battle every second. It's annoying. I am only able to freely walk while in town since I can't go into battle in town. Please help fix this
