great graphic but the controls are a little hard because i was having a hard time trying to get my next move to work. I don't know if I'm doing it right or wrong but i didn't want to get used to it.

i encountered 4 crippling problems with this game 1 the controls suck 2 the dialog is terrible and too long 3 find special items that change the difficulty? 4 the main hero is so whiny and acts like emo kid so i rate this a 4/10

I had a very hard time playing TWEWY. My brain is not wired to be able to control two players at the same time on different screens with different interfaces. I can see how some players who are well versed in real-time action games could pull this off.

The concept is cool, but I have a feeling that every idea that came up during the brainstorming session was put into the game - there is no sense of editing in the game design. Every aspect of the game has a whole complex system, from your clothing and local trends to the food you eat, to reading peoples minds and imprinting them with thoughts. And this is all outside of the actual storyline and combat systems.

The dialog runs on FOREVER and I found myself tapping the screen relentlessly to get through the 5 minutes of talking for every 1 minute of actual gameplay.

If you enjoy turn-based strategy RPGs and being able to think about what you are doing, then this game will be frustrating and a waste of time.
