Recensioner

“99 Spirits has a great art direction, an original story and a unique gameplay that reminds to both Pictionary and Pokémon with a great result. If all indie Japanese indie games are this good I’ll start to learn the language ASAP. It can’t be missing in any indie game collection.”
Bit Maiden

“Without a shadow of doubt, 99 Spirits is one of the most imaginative and accomplished indie games on the market.”
True PC Gaming

“Mixing the puzzle and RPG genre along with some anime themed influences, 99 Spirits became an absorbing and addicting title that was nearly impossible for me to put down for too long.”

Om detta spel

99 Spirits is an RPG/Puzzle game that revolves around the popular Japanese folklore of Tsukumogami, everyday objects coming alive on their 100th birthday.

Hanabusa is a young headstrong girl living in the Heian capital within medieval Japan. But when her mother is slain by evil spirits, her life turns into one of vengeance as she sets out to hunt and destroy the spirits.

During Hanabusa’s travels, she meets a white fox who turns out to be a servant of the mountain god. Hanabusa receives a special sword passed down from her mother, which gives her the ability to see the true forms of spirits to help slay them. Shortly after, a spirit claiming to be Hanabusa’s long-lost father, Hidetada, breaks her sword and leaves Hanabusa powerless and confused.

Now to mend her broken sword and learn the truth about her father, Hanabusa embarks on a journey to annihilate every last one of the evil spirits.

99 Spirits is a fun and unique puzzle role playing game with many hours of gameplay. You take on the role of the heroine Hanabusa who has received the one and only weapon that can defeat the Tsukumogami. The Tsukumogami are everyday items that have come to life, in order to attack them with the sword you must first name what they are using the hints receive. The field in the game is grid based but can be used to your advantage if you want to avoid battling the Tsukumogamis that wander around on each map. At times you will be required to fight specific Tsukumogami and capture them in order to open up new areas. The game can be a bit frustrating and at times fell like it drags on, I recommend spacing out play time.

Innovative spelling\turn based game that just doesn't work. Also, the dialogue is rather lengthy on top of the extremely repetive combat. Its worth a shot if its cheap and you can tolerate impossibly hard games towards the end but I can't recommend this game where there are millions of other games worth your time.

This is a game you probably love or hate.

love : with the fast paced battle and a lot of activity in the middle of the fight, i say it's a good mechanic. for the story its good, not the best but there is something that make you want to go back, it can be for the character or the plot. the game is simple so its easy for everyone to play.

hate : you know this felling if you need to grind. especially early on in the top i say the battle have a lot of activity... yeah but early on the only activity you get was attack and defend. the enemy is stupid you can 100% guaranteed block the enemy attack.

despite the grind thing, the enemy do get smarter letter on, they read your movement and dodge constantly and you have some useful ability to use.

for the guess your enemy mechanic it stand in between. you will like or hate it.
beafore you buy i recommend to search online first because this game not meant for everyone.

Although a little repetitive at times, this game can be fun. I'd recommend it, but it kept freezing on me in the middle of battles, making it impossible to continue playing.

I liked the first end of the game, the Azure one. The other two weren't worth the time at all.

This game is not recommended for most of the people, really.

Can't say I've played a lot.

Story seems quite stereotypical and combat is unintuitive.
However there is a funish sort of guessing game involved if that's your thing.
Definetley give gameplay a google before you're going to purchase.

99 Spirits is a refreshing JRPG puzzle game that has appealing japanese lore.

I like that the game requires a bit of literacy in order to complete. It's a nice change of pace because a lot of other games in this genre do not require you to think much.

I also thoroughly enjoyed the battle system. It's nice to pick from the large number of spirits and assemble a synergized team to steamroll through bosses.

Overall, the game was a solid 20-30 hour experience. I recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a unique JRPG puzzle game to play.

99 Spirits is an ambitious title that eventually falls flat due to its cumbersome battle system. The storyline is great, and the characters are memorable. But when you are forced to execute the same battle commands again and again with very little variation, when you are forced to "discover" the same, old Tsukumagami again and again in battles you shouldn't skip as they help you level up -- the game becomes a chore. It's too bad, really, because there was a great game in the pipes somewhere, but along the way, it went awry. There is no reason why previously-discovered Tsukumagami couldn't have been revealed permanently, so that you are not forced to whittle away at its discovery every battle, "guessing" what is promptly known through repetition, and slogging through monotony.

A very original game with a few gameplay and functional flaws that may frustrate some.

I liked:
-the combat and gem system is very original
-the art style is great, and the story and characters are very interesting

Not too fond:
-the battle music variety. There is only one combat track which loops. I ended up muting it.
-New game+. It is merely a restart with no changes to enemies or difficulty, with your level and money carried over. At least it makes New game+ much faster to complete for the alternate endings.

Frustrating and irritating:
-New game+. It resets your mastered spirit skills. The game already restricts your acquition of skills by limiting the number spirits you can hold in the duration of the game and the availability of spirits by location.
-Kirikiri game engine bugs. Kirikiri is an extremely buggy engine that can make saving an irritant. Also it can crash the GUI and freeze the combat. Rotate your saves, and save often.

Bug workarounds:
Save menu bug- When bringing up the save menu, the menu is blank and I can't access the first page or it brings up the Spirit book.
Fix- Click on page one of the save menu which brings you to the Spirit book. Exit out of the Spirit book and open the save menu again. It should display properly.

Combat freeze- In combat, sometimes I cast an action and the game does not respond.
Fix- Hope you have a recent save. You have to restart the game client.

All in all, a very intriguing game, if you are forgiving of poor New game+ balance and the various bugs of the Kirikiri engine.

SAVE DAMMIT!

"A JRPG, you say?"
Well, yeah, sure, but not in the traditional sense of the term. This is a strange one indeed, but (mostly) in a good way.

This game has a very strong japanese mythology theme. You play a swordswoman, whose main goal is to fight Tsukumogami, strange creatures which take shapes of common everyday items, such as a jacket, a broom and so on.
When you get to fight a Tsukumogami, instead of one of the traditional RPG battle systems, you need to zap the enemy with your special Gokon Sword in order to get clues about its identity and expose it. Once you exposed its identity (i.e. what item it really is), you need to hack it a few more times to finish it.

The thing is - all the clues are literal, in english and based on the japanese lore. For example, if you're fighting a broom Tsukumogami, the clues you get could be either letters from the item's name in uppercase (B or OO, for example), or details about the item itself, what it's being used for, what it's made of and so on ("wood", "cleaning" for example). Once you think you know the name, you "call it out" either by typing it on a virtual in-game keyboard, or by choosing it from a list you can get (and later upgrade for a price) as a part of the story.

If you're wrong, the enemy gets a bonus attack and you lose HP. If you got it right, the shroud is lifted and you get to see the enemy for what it really is. A few more hacks and slashes, and it's usually gone.

I've only been playing the game for 3-4 hours so far, so there might be more complicated stuff I haven't reached yet, but this is what it looks like, so far, and while it gets a little repetitive, it is fun.

First thing, if you plan on playing this save often. My game crashed so many times, jeez.

With that out of the way, this game is very different. Different from what I've played before and different from what I was expecting. Maybe it's my fault for just taking a glance at it, but I was expecting some kind of typing game.

Instead each enemy is a mystery when first encountered, and you actually have to guess what it is (by guessing the word).

At first I thought it was boring, but the game opened up at chapter 3. After that it kept me entertained enough I suppose.

Plenty of reading, light rpg elements. Lots of RNG. Music was good. For how different it is, I believe this game is worth a try.

99 Spirits takes place in medieval Japan in a city attacked by evil spirits. After her mother is killed in the attack, young Hanabusa becomes a warrior and dedicates her life to destroying the Tsukumogami. Fruitbat Factory has obviously taken great care with their work and the localisation is excellent. The English dialogue flows well and without error. Unfortunately, the original script provides little we haven't seen before, and the story holds only minor interest or intrigue.Unlike the story, the gameplay mechanics are fresh and new in their design and execution. The game follows a linear story in which you move Hanabusa from place to place and fight Tsukumogami as you go. The overworld maps function on a grid, and you click to move Hanabusa around to pick up items, fight spirits and move to the next map.They may not be exceptional, but the graphics are solid and aesthetically pleasing. Portraits during dialogue exude charm and aid in developing the characters' personality. The hand-drawn style matches the feel and setting of the game well and evokes a stylistic, historical drawing. The Tsukumogami spirits look distinctively evil, and the warping of everyday objects into these frightening spirits is executed with style.Like the art, the sound suits the game perfectly. The mystical, eastern-sounding tunes draw you into the game and succeed in setting the scene. The fast moving, high-pitched score used in battle adds to the tension and pressure of fighting each spirit and working to figure out their name. There is limited voice acting in the game, but all of it is well done. If you're looking for something new in your RPGs, then give 99 Spirits a shot. The puzzle-style battles are fun and interesting and allow you to forgive the less interesting aspects of the game. The localisation is excellent, even if the story isn't quite so interesting, and the sound and graphics are solid and pleasing. If you like RPGs and word puzzles, then you'll definitely enjoy 99 Spirits.

99 Spirits = English version of Tsukumogami.

PROs :
- interesting story with nice & cute anime arts.
- unique battle system utilizing reflex/reaction, short memory, and simple english vocabulary.
- steam cloud, achievements, & trading cards.

CONs :
- battles are very repetitive and time consuming.

I wish there is an option to skip any battles, or make the battle become much faster
by remove the attack & defense session but keep the word guessing.

99 Spirits is an overwhelmingly anime game. It even includes the untranslated Japanese version! The game is divided into visual novel, and turn based strategy segments.

While I am not an anime or visual novel fan, the gameplay half of 99 Spirits is what had me intrigued. Basically the player moves their character around on a chessboard sort of thing, trying to reach objectives, stores that sell items to improve stats, or dialog scenes. This phase of the game is turn based, and enemies will move as the player moves, making it possible to sometimes avoid combat through careful navigation.

Once a battle is initiated, the player uses a turn based system to attack and defend against the enemy. When enough damage is done, the player receives a hint to the enemy's name. This will be something like ‘Sh’ or ‘Digging’, to hint that it is a possessed shovel. When the player guesses the proper name, it can be defeated. This made 99 Spirits a lot more intellectual in its gameplay than most visual novels can offer.

I did not finish 99 Spirits, but I have been told it is worth completing for the story.

Sound and visuals are good, the story is great The gameplay, however, is special. With a semi-turn based puzzle combat system featuring rpg elements, this makes a really good game. Minor bugs and the required knowledge of English and some eastern culture may keep a lot of people from enjoying it, though. 6/10

A fun little JRPG with some distinctive mechanics. Word guessing is one of them, as is a timed-hits-like feature. Occasionally, some enemies or obstacles may even be integrated with the plot, such as "puzzle" bosses that query the details of a mystery. Mechanics are pretty solid, plot is reasonably interesting, music is quite decent too. It's a little tedious having to discard gemstones one by one when you run out of inventory space, but that's about my only complaint. This game's not the most epic of adventure tales, but it's definitely surprisingly fun to play.

Just make sure you use the gem upgrades to make the C command reveal a ton more hints at once. Four is good. If you're paying attention, you should rarely need more than that. And also get the Escape upgrades, so that you can stop attacking/defending immediately once a gem becomes available for use. And if the clues go by too fast, there's another upgrade for that. The game would probably be more tedious if I didn't get those, so I'm glad I got them. Oh, and buy the Spirit Indexes from the store -- if a spirit is in the list, you can just click the name and be done with it.

(Right-click to cancel if you don't want to upgrade a gem, by the way. I'm not sure the game makes that clear, but it's there. Though you can always redistribute all your upgrade points anyway.)

The game comes with both Japanese and English voicework (which is just battle grunts/lines anyway), as well as the fully Japanese original version.

(Disclosure: I acquired this game as part of the Groupees Indie Bundle.)
