Lost Magic (DS)
Advantages: Good playability
Disadvantages: Graphics are outdated
I started playing this game recently and already have many mixed thoughts about it.
This is a role playing game, whereby you control your allies using the stylus and battle enemies and using your newly learnt magic to defeat them. In this game, the storyline is that you are learning about magic and your grandma, teaches you how to do certain things with your wand. Throughout the game she asks you to do certain things and you must go off and do these little jobs for her. Along the way there is always trouble and you must fight the enemies in order to proceed. In this game you can choose certain dialogues when talking to people, but I think I have worked out that whatever you choose to say, you still get the same outcome.
The graphics of this game is abit outdated and could have been much better to say the least. In this game you can save when you are on the īmapīpage. What can be annoying about this game is that if you are saved at a certain point and you īdieī and must start again, you have to go through the whole speech again. This is something I found out when I was stuck on a level, not only was I frustrated that I couldnt complete the level but I also had to click a good amount of times before I could try the level again.
I think having a storyline to a game is good, but maybe the characters say too much and make it an effort, getting from one level to another. I like that you learn new magic spells in due time instead of learning it all at once, as it makes it more manageable.
The music and sound effects in this game are OK also and could be abit more of higher quality.
Overall I do like playing this game and can see the hype with it. However the graphics are a little outdated and the storyline can sometimes get in the way of being able to actually play the game.
