Ubisoft finds the Magic touch

While the plot is typical RPG fare, the way the game plays is far more interesting, with Taito utilising the DS touch-screen, point-and-click style, as a way to command the monster units. Specific shapes must then be made using the stylus in order to activate any of the 350 different magic combinations available.

LostMagic even makes use of the WiFi connectivity, with gamers able to create new characters and test their powers and combat strategy against other DS owners in Duelling mode.
