Summary: A very fun game where you draw with your stylus to perform various spells. The game is very fun but has a few annoying glitches where your summoned creatures will not move as you expect them to or will get stuck and not keep together.
Summary: This game was a blast with the way the battles were actually played. Having to draw certain combinations of runes quickly and accurately was challenging, but not nearly as rough as remembering which combinations did what. I feel this is a great and innovative battle system.
Summary: This game isn't the best on presentation or story, but it has its moments. The challenges are difficult, the system is somewhat broken, and its short (20 hours), but the really amazing thing is all the work that went into the spell system.
Summary: This games was very different its a mix of RPG RTS and pokemon. The controls with the pen were a bit hard at first but became kind of fun, the story is predictable and sterio type. Over all a 3/5.
Summary: I liked the idea of drawing spells to cast them, and it really is pretty neat, but it takes so much time to cast spells that I sometimes have trouble keeping up with the action happening around me. The AI in this game is pretty non-existant.

An interesting take on the action RPG / strategy genre

Excerpt: I've always been a fan of games that take a different approach, games that try to do things in a different way, even when they aren't great in every way. Even if the game isn't perfectly executed, I'll always interested to play it if it is unique in some way. Lost Magic is one of those games.
