    A unique, turn-based RPG where you create 'doodles' to fight in a very simple rock-paper-scissors style combat system, similar to Pokemon. You fight battles to earn color to draw more doodles. Different colors give different elemental powers and strengths. You can buy doodles from some of the people in town, or make them all yourself. The doodling system is simple and very flexible, if you have the resources to draw something, it can be drawn. The plot is very simple, but something about the locations, the art style, and the simple plot work very well together. The innocence of the entire game gives it a very nice charm, and the conclusion to the plot was satisfying. The game is short for an RPG, about 15 or so hours to beat the main plot. However, there's a fun 2-player mode where you can battle doodles from two separate save files, and post-game you can still create doodles and enter tournaments, giving the game some longevity.

    If you can track this game down, you should definitely give it a try, it is by far one of the most unique experiences you could have on any console. Also yes you can draw a giant dick monster and fight with it.

    This game is just terrible. I mean, the first few minutes of the game is just plain stupid and boring. The gameplay is as stale as anything. It's basically an over-glorified rock paper system, and the customization is cool, but if you have no interest in the game then customization is bad. I don't understand this game at all, and it's terrible, just plain TERRIBLE

    It's a flawed-but-fascinating curiosity and addictive despite itself thanks to the truly awesome monster generation. [June 2003, p.113]
  2. The painting is cool and the characters are likeable, but this is more about your own imagination than your own fun.
  3. Therein likes Magic Pengel's beauty... it's the fact that you can bring to life almost anything you imagine. [June 2003, p.106]
