The concept for this game is neat! However, I found it hard to get into. There was lots of reading in the beginning of the game, setting up the story. When I finally got to try a spell I found it difficult to make it work. Then I lost interest in the game. Maybe I should have given it more of a chance.... Perhaps the calibration on my dsi might need a look....?

The art and music got me excited. The idea and story got me excited. Playing the game made me die on the inside.
I did not like this game. I like it's idea and story, but I didn't want to read a book, I wanted to play a game. It takes forever to get to do anything with all the dialog. Then you have to run around and find out what to do next, sometimes it's straight forward, other times you have no clue!
I was excited about the touch screen, but why, when I trace a symbol perfectly, does it get rejected!? I had to redo so many matches because the game wouldn't accept my tracing. It felt glitchy and very annoying.
I want to say this would be a perfect game for smaller kids, but even my younger sibling had trouble playing it. She got so frustrated with it I had to stop her from throwing my DS against a wall!
If you have free time on your hands and someone offers to let you play their copy, go for it. Otherwise don't waste space on your GameQ.
At the begining of the game was fine,until it started to develop in the story mode.like i get to this boss battle with this cloud,and when i trace the symbol THE RIGHT WAY,it ignores me and lets the the boss win.Don`t rent,Dont even buy it.Natsume,just stick to animal games.
I am a pretty patent person, but this game is so bad even I almost lost it! There are some games with a lot of talking that are great.like Tales of Vesperia, or Eternal Sonata. But I have found sadly that most DS games are very childish and your reviews are right this game is not even playable. I put up with the long boring dialog then tried for like 30 minutes to draw there symbol but nothing worked, no matter how hard or how perfect I made it,it would not work! This game should be pulled off the market as defective!
The level 3 fire spell seemed glitchy no matter how many times I used it. The 1rst couple of times I used it I had no problem but after that it was hit or miss. I had trouble figuring out to look at the spell list(located under the eraser) at the beginning of the game. Even if you memorize the spells you still need that list to time the "circle" correctly. The game was simple because you spent most of your time walking around talking to people but the spells were sometimes hard because you had to get the timing exact or they didn't work no matter how perfectly you traced the symbol. Once you finally figure out what your doing it's also very short(13 chapters). I got it on Saturday afternoon and finished it on Sunday evening easily. The story isn't bad but isn't really exceptional either.
