Genre: Stratiegy Developer: Konami
I have of yet no mp3's or midis on this game yet. I don't like making reviews on games with out throwing at least some music, so that's why I was at first a little hesitant putting this review up.
Ok, now for the review...
Ahh, where do I start? I suppose I must've heard "RPG" associated with this game (or else I probably wouldn't have played it), and it does have some RPG elements, but when it comes right down to it, what really determines genre is the battle system.
The tower, in my opinion, is by far the most interesting part, but there's enough going on around town to make that interesting too. But what I want to emphasize is the tower. It takes you a second to realize that battle is not spontaneous, and you can avoid most enemies by moving around the level strategically. That, in itself, is a quality seen in no other game, so this game automatically gets "3 stars" for innovation.
Another thing I want to mention is the wind crystal deal. One of the most important decisions you have to make is whether you want to keep on going up levels, and risk the possibility of dieing, and losing all you stuff, or using the wind crystal, which will let you keep everything you've earned, but the next time you want to go to the tower, guess what? You have to start at level 1 again!
Well, I won't spoil it for you by telling you how many levels there are, but in summary Azure dreams is a fun-filled game that the whole family can enjoy, and will keep you playing for hours & hours.
