Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I really, REALLY enjoyed this game! Especially since it has such deep lore and gameplay! Even the small hidden things are really cute, like things concerning the appreciation flowers~ The only things that kinda cooled things down for me was when I first lost my save file after over 10 hours of gameplay and 39 moonstones...but I guess that's because I failed to take notes of the save codes. It sucks having to start over again but I did, and almost 15 hours later, I completed the game with 100% and all collectibles and achievements (Exceot for the speedrunner and indomitable achievement, those are just impossible for me)
However, no matter how hard I try, I hate, absolutely HATE EVERYTHING about the Prince's Tower, especially the part with the bells and ladders and the secret heart ruby section...I mean, I can ignore some of the more annoying enemies (I'm looking at you, frogs, dogs and harpies!) this section of the game just made me cry with frustration and nearly made me stop playing altogether...
BUT: I managed to beat it (despite needing the guide) and it was really satisfying. The music is really nice and fitting, the graphics are cute and detailed (as much as pixels can be detailed) and I enjoyed the sidequests and dialogues alot! I can't wait to play the sequel!

All in all, I'll give this game a 4.5 out of 5, it would have been 5 if it weren't for the Prince Tower section and losing my whole save when I was so close to completing the game <3 Apart from that, this game is simply a masterpiece in its own~

Wow. Amazing game! I can't wait for the next game to come out! By the way, what is the thing with the 4 capsules that you find in the ???? ? Is it going to be in the next game? Please don't respond to me with "You will find out". I want to know now!

So now that I've finally complete the game I've wanted to 3 years ago I can truly say this.
This game is undeniably awesome, the music, the art style, the gameplay & story. Everything is mix together at a perfect ratio to form such a wonderful game. I've a wonderful time playing this. Also a bit of a rage since I'm bad at these kind of games. ^_^ (Just kidding. Maybe. The game is suppose to be hard right? So I guess that kinda water down my rage a bit)
Kudos to everyone working in this game. I'll keep an eye for another magnificent sequel. And maybe this time I might not take 3 years to finish..........

This game blew me away. Everyone who worked on this game did an amazing job, the music, the characters, the graphics, they all touched my heart. I'm a highly empathetic person, but even for me the music carries such emotion and nostalgia. The characters, both major and minor, are relatable and heartwarming. The story was original and beautiful.

On a technical aspect, the controls respond well and the layout of the menu were well placed. And I admire that the game doesn't hold your hand and provides just enough instruction that it brings pleasure to solve the puzzles and grow your skills.

This game will forever hold a place in my heart. If I could purchase this game for console or computer I would, and I'm definitely purchasing the soundtrack. And I might send some fan art your way. Thank you for this game, and I'll be eagerly awaiting the sequel.

P.S. On a less "profound" note, this game made me cry lots, in a good way.

This game was hard, but fun. The biggest challenge were the "arrows in the palace" where you have to move fast since you can't just dodge the bells. The other challenge was that final part of the game (Not going to spoil it). Is there any update on the sequel?
