Summary: Some of the reviews about this game is a bit misleading. I bought it thinking that it would be similar to Animal Crossing, but in fact, the game was very different. The graphics seem rough, and it's hard to make out certain details on the characters in the game. (I'd say it's kind of like Animal Crossing: Wild World, but probably less advanced.) But I'm not surprised, since this game is for the Nintendo DS.
Summary: I originally got this game to help me wait for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. 4 months after that game was released and I still heavily play this game, often times more than New Leaf. It improves on the Animal Crossing formula in many ways, including the addition of a story (but it's not forced on you) and very complex social interaction with classmates. There is a 3DS sequel for this game, but it's in Japan only right now.
Summary: Yes, it's an Animal Crossing rip off. I got it because I was bored and needed something to make fun of. The only parts of the game I enjoyed were things stolen from Animal Crossing.The magic spells you learn are useless.The puzzles are like something from a DOS adventure game, cryptic, and difficult to solve without outside help. Also, the game lags if more than three characters are on screen. Fantastic.
Summary: I give this game four stars. I would give it five but the mysterious are some times hard, all in all this game is very fun and cute. You are a wizard and you can choose your gender and also decorate your room and there are many things to choose from. In a way this game is like Animal Crossing but better. Also the people you get to talk to who live in the town have a lot more to say then the ones on animal crossing. All in all I would buy this game.
Summary: If you guys have ever played animal crossing then you would known what I am talking about. This has about the same goal as AC but is a lot different and more interesting. If this game got the right kind of advertisement I think it would sell more than AC. When in the game you start out as an apprentice magician. You can go to school to learn spells. There is a shopping center a hair shop and furniture shop with endless furniture and much more!
Summary: It shipped out 7/2 & arrived on 7/3, how is that for fast delivery? (WOW) Yes, like others have stated this is similar to AC but much much better with so much more to do. You don't have to feel tied down to it for fear of a favorite character leaving like AC. This game is not available at retail stores, only place to get is Amazon. I usually only pay between $10-$15 on average per game. However I did not mind paying $30 for this one, it is worth the money spent.
