Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland [import] review

  • Strange gameplay works
  • Making maps, reaping benefits
  • Purchasing system is great
  • Carpel tunnel controls
  • Wish Tingle was better fighter
  • Can't tell what's going on in battles

The control system deserves a special mention because it’s one of the most evil things we’ve experienced on DS. Use the D-pad or buttons to move around the world, but whenever you find an item you have to touch it with the stylus. It’s incredibly picky. This is basically a traditional game design that would have played best in a traditional way, hampered by gratuitous use of the DS. It’s also gratuitously quirky, and we think maybe Wario will want his job back some day - but as a title that could have remained in Japanese obscurity, it’s worth our support.
