    While the game has many new and unique ideas, the implementation falls short. The use of only a stylus for most of the controls bogs the game down, and looking around the map while seeing if any of your units are being targeted is horribly complicated. The graphics are minimal, and most of the time it's like watching a chess game where you can only see a quarter of the board.

While the card system is a neat idea, and I like that you can get new cards at the end of each battle, The effects of those cards are hard to see, and often will leave you guessing as to what happened. The deck edit is also not very well done, and though you can have three different decks, I beat the game with minimal edit to one. The gameplay overall is novel at first, but after time seems to drag on. and on. This game needed smaller maps, better controls, and a tweaking of the deck edit program to be successful. If you like the story line, then play it for a laugh, but don't buy it. Expand

    Okay, so let's grab an action game and make an estrategy game out of it. Makes perfect sense, yeah. Oh wait NO IT DOES NOT. Well, I admit I'm not kind to strategy games, but come on! It's like making a fighting game of a series of games based around puzzles. I can picture it: PROFESSOR LAYTON VS STREET FIGHTER 4 ULTRA RECHARGED LIMITED EDITION.

    Rather than delivering a solid title full of familiar gameplay an alternate route was taken. While it does have a few moments of entertainment, there just aren’t enough reasons to invest time and money into this product.
  2. Far too similar to games that are wonderful. So while it's not hideous or unplayable, it constantly reminds you of a far better game you could be playing instead.
  3. Underneath its modest looks and intimidating, complex battle system is a turn-based strategy game that is surprisingly fun and satisfying.
