What is it? A beautiful, detailed, gloriously colourful 2D action-RPG, with a gorgeous soundtrack, lush environments, and a whole lot of stat-handling going on under its sword-swinging action.
What’s it probably inspired by? Secret of Mana, and to a lesser extent, Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series. The real-time, isometric combat apes Mana’s fast-paced, combo-driven battling and accessible magic system all the way, as does the game’s marriage of immediate, easily comprehensible game mechanics and deep, ‘proper’ roleplaying. The graphical style and structure of area layouts are also as close as a lawsuit will allow, and as for the upbeat, layered, sparkly vibe of its soundtrack? Some of it could almost be made out of Hiroki Kikuta b-sides.
