This game is a combination of adventure(quest based), puzzle solving(including short fill it ins), and strategy battles. Some of the elements are confusing at first but if you pay attention to the tutorials and practice a little, they grow on you. After the 1rst chapter you accept quests where you have to solve clues that tell you where to find a labarynth. Then find and defeat(without draining completely) animated treasures by using other treasures in your inventory. Once you've defeated all of the treasures in a dungeon you're sent back to the opera house(quest headquarters) where you collect reputation points for the puzzles solved in the dungeon. Points are determined by how few or many hints used. You can use the points/any gems you've collected to buy resurrection stones to revive your animated treasures if they are drained in battle. This game has interesting story sequences and good voice acting which makes you want to keep playing.

I really wanted to like this game, but there wasnt enough game to flesh out what seemed like a good story. A lot of running around, avoiding gaurds, repetative puzzles (nothing like layton), and it was immpossible to develop any kind of stratagy to take down the treasure gaurdians. I gave it five hours and as entertained as I was during that time I was watching a french anime, not playing a game.
