Magical Vacation: 5 Hoshi ga Narabu Toki Guide v1.00 Update


Walkthrough complete!

A great game from Brownie Brown, the developers of Secret of Mana and Mother 3 (known as Earthbound outside Japan)! It had a very interesting battle system although it could use a little more spells. Music and graphics were top-notch even though they are only 2D. The backgrounds and sprites all very detailed with fluid animations and rendering.

The story seemed fairly dull at first just like the first game was on the GBA but the variety of the different planets kept my interest. The story did however develop eventually as we learn about the legends behind the planets and the Tarotaro Solar System. A very original, if not kind of wacky idea behind it all. But what would you expect from a company that helped develop Mother 3!

Kind of felt sorry for Chai in the ending, though =(

Hope you enjoyed it, for those who followed my guide!

Don’t forget the English version of this game, “Magical Starsign” will be released in October in the US.

Digimon Story Guide Update, v1.00

Walkthrough complete!

It was a fun game with a unique experience system because you couldn’t level all the way up like most RPGs. There were many conditions to fulfill before you could level to a certain point. Managing the Digimon Farm was interesting too as you try to select the right goods to train your Digimon. Instead of having a static list of goods in the shop, the list of goods actually changes each day giving it that much bit more of variety. You’ll find yourself checking the Farm Shop every in-game day.

The “dungeons” on the other hand, were really small so not much exploration but, that’s not necessarily a bad thing if this game was aimed at someone new to RPGs. Since this game was completely written in Kana, I’d say it was designed with that purpose as well as aim at the younger audience. Digimon Story also has plenty of replayability as you experiment with the evolution routes each Digimon can take. Great for Digimon fans!
