Manufacturer's Description

The students of Will O' Wisp magical academy have a little problem: Their teacher has mysteriously disappeared. After commandeering a handful of rockets to rescue her, they've wound up on a strange (and sometimes scary) adventure through outer space. Now players must rescue both their classmates AND their teacher and just maybe the whole solar system while they're at it.

Game storyline:
Madeleine, a respected and powerful teacher at Will O' Wisp magical academy, tells her students that she will undertake a dangerous mission in space and trains them for combat should the need arise. After not hearing from her for some time, the kids stumble upon a hangar of rocket ships. One by one, they board individual ships and crash-land on distant planets alone. The player hops from planet to planet assembling the group of classmates. Once together, they learn of an evil sorcerer - a former student of the academy who now has ambitions to destroy reality - and set out to stop him. Characters: Players can choose between a male or female human character. The students in the academy make up the rest of their party. Each student specializes in a different kind of magic.

How to progress through the game:
In Magical Vacation, players begin their quests as students at a magical academy. As they progress through the game, they will travel to new lands and cities, fight monsters to earn experience points and buy weapons, armour and items from shops. Characters will gain levels and power as they earn more and more experience points. Later in the game, players become free to wander and explore the world.

Multiplayer amigo dungeon and tag mode extend game play by giving players a unique amigo dungeon they can explore with a total of six people. Additionally, tag mode allows players to exchange data with one another and grow unique egg characters that slowly grow and hatch over time.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features:
The game's combat plays like a traditional role-playing game. The difference comes from the command wheel and the stylus interface. Players tap on the attacks they want to use and then tap on an enemy to target. The game focuses on magic attacks: Each character has a sign linked to one of the planets that determines the type of magic he or she uses. As the planets move through the solar system, the effectiveness of magic spells shifts, requiring an ever-changing battle plan: Monsters and characters grow stronger as their planets shift into prominence and weaker as they move out of those positions. Players can check the planets' positions by tapping on the astrolog.

Characters can occupy two battle ranks. From the front rank, they can attack individual enemies physically or with magic. From the back, they can attack groups of enemies with magic, but they cannot use physical attacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DS RPG? 4 Feb 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Quite possibly.
Has an interesting combat system where the row your characters do battle in effects which monsters are targeted by their magic. Sounds complex but feels very natural after you get to grips with it. The actual range of spells and items isn't huge but it definitely keeps you occupied and is diverse enough to keep the game fresh.

All the games actions are controlled using the stylus, which works well but takes some getting used too. The graphics are pretty good if you're into that mario superstar saga cartoon style. The use of the two screens is pretty cool as well with some spells moving between spells as they arc over ranks of monsters. Pretty flashy stuff.

The plots farely solid but won't exactly win oscars. Its just about some kids at a magic school travelling in space trying to find their missing teacher. Pretty generic but the characters are lovable, if a little cutesy, and the creatures you encounter are often hilarious and full of fun. Watch out especially for the pot village on the fire planet.

Haven't yet played the multiplayer but the single player is worth the ten pounds i got the game for on its own. If you like RPGs then i can't recommend this game enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Starsign is a sign of a great RPG 9 Feb 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To start off with the main storyline is all about classmates from the Will O' Wisp magical academy take to the stars in search of their teacher, a well respected and powerful magician called Madeleine, when they suspect that she has gone missing after leaving on a fairly routine diplomatic mission 3 months ago.

The classmates begin their search by commandeering rockets hidden within the academy itself, but once they take off they soon become separated in the coldness of space. It is all up to you to reunite yourself with Madeleine and if that wasn't enough, your fellow classmates too!

When you begin the game you are given a choice about which element you wish your main character to be aligned to, Light or Dark. Choosing Light gives you access powerful light based attacks and healing spells, choosing Dark allows you to have special Draining abilities and Dark-based attacks. Your other 5 classmates are already aligned to their own element, Wind, Fire, Earth, Water and Wood.

In the Solar System the game takes place are 5 elemental planets, and you guessed it, are those I listed above. The Solar System is also split up into 5 elemental zones one for each of the aforementioned elements, the purpose of which will be explained in a mo.

Throughout the game, the planets cycle in orbit around the sun at the centre of the solar system (pretty obvious, huh?) and they also pass through the 5 elemental zones. When a planet whose element is the same as that as the zone it is passing through then magicians aligned to said element will gain an extra power boost during battle for his or her spells.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden gem ! 12 April 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had never heard of this game until I read a few reviews across the web. Even after reading about the game and how good it was, I was still a little dubious. Well I needn't of been. A really good rpg with proper elements including turn-based battle, leveling up, buying new equipment in towns/villages, etc. The graphics are pretty good and the story line pretty good too. All in all this is a really good game that is well worth the £10 or so that it go's for. The game is set in space and you must travel to various planets (towns) to gather information, tackle side quests, buy new equipment etc. This feature works, and works well. Giving the game a good degree of originality.
One last thing, keep an eye on the time when your playing it! As its pretty hard to put down !!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Not To Be Missed!! 27 Feb 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before i bought this i was looking for a new game for a while and overlooked this at first, thinking it was a childs game as you are school students whose teacher goes missing and you have to find her. Luckily i had a better look at it. . . . ITS FAB!! (kids could play too though)

It is an rpg type game where you need to travel to different planets and rescue your magician teacher Miss Madeline. Then you find out a lot of magicians have been kidnapped. You have to save them from a mysterious villan called Kale who used to be a student at your school and has turned to the bad!

You start out with just one character. . . I can't remember all the names as you can change all characters names at the beginning, not just the main character which is a nice touch. . . . and you travel to a planet then you get tasks and people on the planets help you and along the way you meet up with your friends who also set out to rescue Miss Madeline and all got separated. I have got 5 in my party up to now. I have got around 14 hours gameplay and have got a task that involves revisiting 5 planets to find rare items that will help a master engineer dwarf refit my rocket ship to go to the next planet to stop some sort of mysterious evil ceremony from taking place, so will be playing for quite a few hours more yet.

The starsign bit comes in where you all were born under a planet that you draw power from. This is the magic type they use. There is water,fire,wind,earth and forest, also light and dark, which is night and day. You get to choose between light/dark for your main character. When your planet is aligned correctly in the solar system you get extra power for your attacks - so do enemies.
