Lost Magic – Consumer Guide

Tera Kirk's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Mild Fantasy Violence

Parents won't find any objectionable content in LostMagic. There's no gore, no foul language, and no sexual innuendo. Victory depends on the player's strategy rather than brute force, so this game requires some critical thinking.

Unartistic and uncoordinated gamers will want to stay away. To draw the magic runes on the touch-screen, one hand holds down the L or R button while the other hand works the stylus—all while enemies swarm your troops. It's like patting your head while rubbing your stomach, and it's not as fun as you'd think.

Grind-haters will be thankful that they don't need to "level up"—to go back to stages they've already cleared just to strengthen their monsters. The game is more about strategy than strength, and it's easy to catch high-level creatures.

Deaf and hard of hearing gamers should have no problems. All dialogue is in text, and there are no significant auditory cues.
