Love Chronicles: The Spell
Different Style Of Gameplay
BASED ON DEMO
This game is really quite different from any other game I?ve played. Though perhaps not so different from older games.
The TRAVELLING/ADVENTURE component is basically removed, and a MAP-DRIVEN action takes its place. Each LOCATION is reached by map, and it is within that that the HO are found.
You are given a set of FRAGMENTED OBJECT SILHOUETTES and must find them within the SCENE. Later, some of these objects may only be found by returning to a previously cleared location. With the OBJECTS you acquire, you must complete TASKS, such as making a dagger or creating a fishing rod.
Sometimes there are PUZZLES to complete, but they seemed FEW, and were not too difficult.
There is a HINT, only for HO scenes (because EVERYWHERE is a HOS), NO JOURNAL.
The GRAPHICS are GOOD, especially for a game this OLD. NOT meant for WIDESCREEN, it still manages to look clear enough to play.
There are also COLLECTIBLE maple leaves, and you are given the number of them to look for in each scene.
The STORY is that a young prince sets out on a quest to save an unknown kingdom from an evil witch, that he has been dreaming about. He finds the KINGDOM soon enough, but it seems to take forever for him to get any further. In the hour?s demo, I still had not made it through the castle gates.
The game looks LONG, but it plays very slow, and I found, in the end, that was what put me off this game.
It fits into my so-so category, but not high up enough for me to buy, and therefore I can?t recommend it.

I bought this game without trying it because I had a credit to use and it was about to expire. The graphics are good but the directional arrow, grab hand etc. are in a circle that moves around which I found very annoying. The music sounds like a cheesy adventure movie but of course that can be turned down. I played about 10 minutes and will probably not go any further.

Typical "good deed" style game, but still fun
This game is a classic "Oh, I have that item you need, do something for me and I'll give it to you". Personally, I don't like those. The art was nice for me, and the music pretty, but the fact that there was no voice acting bothered me slightly. I'll let the facts speak for themselves:
Good for kids? Yes
Guide required? Yes, looked up a walkthrough and relied on it occasionally
Buy? No, get it as a free punch card game or a daily deal
Last line: nice art, decent game, not going to be a favorite

I looked closely for one game, I missed. This one not sure. Played for a short short time. Horrible. I wait for the super ones. I have played about a thousand so, I should know.

If You Enjoy HOG Especially Finding Pieces Go For It
This game is sooo Not for me...
I dont like HOGs and HOS that much..
I really dislike finding pieces..
with a couple of exceptions..
Oddly Enough and
Treasures of Mystery Island Ghost Ship

but this is more like a childs game to me..
One of my family members loves this series...
so to each his own...
I found the game dreadful...
