Which witch did this?
Chantelise is a fairly charming take on the classic action RPG genre which plays out a little like the Ys games, such as Oath in Felghana. It's not quite a must play but if you like supporting this kind of thing, you should have a decent time here. The story is quite pleasant and fairly harmless, telling the tale of how a young girl got turned into a fairy by a witch's curse. Now, together with her sister, she seeks a way to transform back and which starts off a journey which, if not quite epic by the standards of Elder Scrolls, is still quite daunting. What follows is a fairly traditional action RPG which uses a third person perspective and which allows you to explore towns, battle monsters, use magic and search for treasure. There are five main dungeons to explore, plus a couple of bonus ones, along with some meaty boss fights and activities like fishing, with lots of collectibles to discover too. There are some interesting ideas regarding equipment, magic and gear which make the game stand out a little, but for the most part this will be familiar to anyone who's played such a game before. The story is a little trite but it's got some charm, with some nice characters and twee writing to carry the plot along, while the main gameplay isn't exactly challenging but which is fun for the most part. The level and monster design is pretty generic, and there are some issues with the wonky controls, but you soon get used to these. You can put a good number of hours into completing this, and although once it's done there's little incentive to play again, while it lasts, this is a fun romp.
