Role Playing game

Compile's Madō Monogatari takes the famous Puyo Puyo franchise and gives it a new and original twist. No puzzles nor cute ascending Puyos anymore. Madō Monogatari is instead a (simple) 2D overhead Role Playing Game featuring most of the characters from the series. Arle, the cute little girl so familiar to anyone who played the Puyo Puyo series of game, embarks on a long quest. Everything starts when she receives a mysterious letter - she then goes on a long journey where she will learn magic spells and retrieve eight gems. The game follows a traditional structure with towns where new items and equipment can be found. Turn based fights are randomly triggered during the game. However, unlike traditional RPGs, our character can only uses magic spells such as fireballs, lightening or confusion spells throwing cute dancing flowers at the enemy. Another originality of the game is to not display any health meter - instead, Arle's status can be guessed by just looking at how she moves during battles, and the expression on her face.

Madō Monogatari is a very interesting and unusual game. If you are a Role Playing hardcore player, I would advice you to just walk away and ignore it. Story is very simple and does not compare to any big RPGs available for the Super Famicom system. The game has cute and silly graphics, and gives the impression it was aimed at a young audience - and be warned, it was also designed for a young Japanese audience and you will need strong Japanese basics to enjoy the game in full. All in all, it is a charming and cute title on the outside but sort of hollow in the inside. However, I personally kind of like it and it definitively brings something new and fresh to the genre.
