A-puzzling we go
by Mike Rose 25/1/2013
Product: Crystal Adventure
Publisher: CIRCLE Entertainment
Format: DSi, 3DS
Genre: Puzzle, RPG
First impressions are not Crystal Adventure's strong point. After ten minutes I was stuck thanks to a silly auto-save system, and forced to start over from the beginning.
But once you really begin to get what this Circle Entertainment-developed title is about there's actually a great little puzzler / RPG hybrid to be found.
It could have done with a bit of a sprucing up, but for the DSiWare asking price this is well worth a look.
At first glance, there isn't a lot to Crystal Adventure. It seems like an automatic-turn-based battler with a really cruddy universe to explore.
Give Crystal Adventure a chance, and you'll find some great gameplay behind its lacklustre aesthetic
