Over dit spel

Vijf jaar geleden veranderde de vloek van een heks onder een rode maan Chante in een fee. Nu zoeken zij en haar zus Elise een manier om haar weer terug te veranderen in een mens, en tijdens hun reis stuiten ze op een bepaalde stad, die het thuis is van meerdere dichtbijgelegen ruïnes, een eigenaardige winkeleigenaar die Aira heet, en een vreemde waarzegger die zichzelf Elma noemt. Zou deze plaats de oplossing kunnen hebben om Chante weer normaal te maken? Of zal het naar meer antwoorden leiden dan onze twee zussen ooit hadden willen weten?...

Reminds me a one of the Japanese action RPG from PS1. We don't see this often enough, and that's a shame.

Now, indeed this game is bit hard to control if you are not use to it, but you can map it from game folder. Go to local game folder, open Steam\Steamapps\common\Chantelise and you can configure the control from there.

I used this mapping- ←→↑↓for movement, A for attack, S for Jump, D for dash, F for lock-on, left Shift and space for camera angle. Trust me, this works like charm.

Now on to the game. I loved it. I beat it, and I still play it from time to time. Stroyline isn't much deep and straight forward, but it's charming and easy to play. English translation is bit cheesy though- I played it on Japanese because... I am. It's almost like a mixture of Xenogears, Mario, and Zelda. Fun beat'em up, less puzzle.
Only downside that I can think about is that the dungeon is very simple and only one-way direction. All you have to do is to defeat all enemies and unlock the gate, rinse and repeat. The boss battle is more fun. You have to figureout the pattern of the movement, and find the weakpoint. This part tends to be more like Zelda.
You will also unlock few more things, like having magic on your sword. Charge attack will release the magic with several different ability, and I thought that was fun.

Anyway, I would recommend this game, especially if you like doujin games. You won't be dissappointed.

We rented this game from the video store to try it out, and we liked it well enough to buy one. I thoroughly enjoy this game in spite of some flaws in the animation. Maybe that's because my criterion for a good game is that it should challenge my reasoning skills. This game definitely does that!


Although "Chantelise" is rated "6 years and older" in terms of content (from the G-rated movie), it's a difficult game that might frustrate some children, and will definitely challenge adults. It has five "worlds" with 3 levels each (that's 15 levels in all). So far, I've only gotten to Level 4 (where the Bird gobbles me up every time!) Each time I play, however, I discover new tricks and features that I missed before.


The real trick in this game is not bashing badongo's at breakneck speed, it's figuring out the best order to collect the various items. True, Elise's Red Berries are very hard to aim and you need several throws to do much good. They're meant to be that way, because they're his least powerful weapon. But find that green Homing Berry, and your aiming problems are solved, because it follows the target like a smart bomb! Also, I didn't find Chante's harvester on Level 1 until I had played for several hours -- but once I did, my whole strategy changed the next time around. And I'm sure it will change again, once I find whatever it is I need to get past that darned Bird!

I give this game a 0/10 though, because its gaaaay af.

Boring. Revolves around tedious and clunky combat. It's worth repeating: boring as a barrel of stale bread. The characters appear to be as flat and interesting as cardboard, and the story -- though the intro makes it seem intriguing! -- soon reveals itself to be just as flimsy. Or so it would seem. The combat is way too boring to slog through, so I'm not bothering to find out if the story or its characters get any better later on. The entire game is clunky, and a lot of the art and design choices are laughable or cringe-worthy. I was expecting the immediate wit and charm of other Carpe Fulgur titles, but I didn't find it here. There were some cute caterpillars that tried to kill me, but that's the only good thing I can say about this game.

So obviously it's not my sort of game, buuuut you might like it if you are interested in replicating the (admittedly sometimes magical and bizarrely entertaining) experience of playing a bargain bin PS1 title, and/or you really really REALLY like hack-and-slashers so much that it doesn't matter how tedious or one-dimensional that hack-and-slashing might be.

"there were some cute caterpillars" 1/10

If you wanted Recettear, you would just play Recettear.
This game seems to be a prototype for Recettear in a lot of ways. For instance, while the game utilizes a 3d perspective, it all feels very clunky and disorienting when the charcter model is 2d and moves in a 2d way. It has that sort of early PS1 feel to it which puts me off. Carpe Fulgur seemed to grasp that this would work better in a 2d top-down perspective like in Recettear and bam, they made a superior game.
The combat is not as varied as in Recettear either. You control the same person throughout the story attacking with the same three-hit melee combo. There also is a magic function which depends on the crystal pickups you got from enemies, but it all feels very stiff since you have to cast it in the exact order you pick up, giving you little choice between what spells you would use.
I wish I liked this game. I wish I did, but it has too many shortcomings in the combat system and tries to combat it with a 3d perspective that feels lacking in comparison to today's visuals.

Chantelise succeeds in telling a story in a way that you always want to see what happens next. So you end up playing "just one more" level. And to me, that is a sign of a good game. The story is catchy - and setting and characters aren't bad either. Art style is pretty. The music fits the game nicely, though otherwise the sounds are not that spectacular.

In my opinion, the difficulty level was ok. It starts rather easy and keeps getting harder as you progress. As you advance further in the story you must adapt to different situations. Another thing I liked about this game is that there are different ways to "build" your character, using different equipment and skills in different levels.

Only thing that really bugged me was the camera. Maybe I just didn't know how to control it properly, but the camera controls were awkward at times.

The translation from Japanese to English seems pretty good. At least I didn't spot any situations where dialogues would have been weird or illogical. Although there is very little voice acting, those have been kept in Japanese, which is a good thing in my opinion.

All in all, "Chantelise - A Tale of Two Sisters" is a fun game. Even after you finish the game there is still stuff to do! Also, if you have played "Recettear - An Item Shop's Tale", there is a lot familiar stuff for you to encounter, although the game itself is quite different.

Awesome game! I can play it for hours. It can get rather difficult and I haven't beaten the 2nd boss yet but It's worth playing! Simple rpg, cute characters and awesome gameplay!

This is the kind of game I hope to make in the future. It's gameplay was outstanding, its story dedicated but cliche'. And it's artistic style was amazing, albeit could use a few more frames.

Definitely a sideways-thumb review. Can't give it a full endorsement since it's rather poor in spots, but at the same time I liked it enough to finish and do some extra stuff in it. Honestly, most of your enjoyment in this game will come down to how you like Carpe Fulgar's adaptation. If you liked how Recettear and Fortune Summoners read, you're in for more of the same and will have more fun with Chantelise.

The gameplay on the other hand is not so hot. Chantelise is a 3D dungeon-diving game with bland graphics, repetitive enemies, and some truly annoying audio (ugh, that low health indicator). As the game progresses, you can mix and match pick-ups for more diverse spells, but they're just kind of blah on the whole, both idea-wise and visually. Melee is also just kind of there and is incredibly simplistic.

One cool feature about the set-up of the game (go to dungeon, run through some floors and then fight boss) is that each floor has a hidden item that you can grab by completing some type of unique goal. I'd suggest just looking up the in-game hint in a guide and then figuring it out yourself rather than deal with how the game gives out clues, as you lose some of your max hp to acquire them. Some of the stuff you have to do to get the hidden treasure is pretty cool and shows a development team that cared about trying to make their game fun but just weren't up to snuff to do so.

The dungeons themselves aren't anything special, either design or art-wise. You do have to run a dungeon all the way from floor 1 to the boss floor to beat it, though after reaching a floor, you can choose to practice on it from the map, which is useful for getting ready for boss fights.

Technically, far from a great game, or even a a particularly good one for that matter, but the adaptation and looking for some of the hidden treasures did enough for me to enjoy my time with this game. I'd only fully recommend it to people that enjoyed the other adaptations Carpe Fulgur did or big-time fans of dungeon-running games.

I really, really like this game. Wouldn’t consider myself an anime nut or anything but the mix of 2D/3D in this game is enduring. Solid, simple game play provided you have a controller. The game is short but that’s ok, it doesn’t drag on more than it should and gives you just the right amount of obtuse story. Only thing to watch out for is the difficulty ramps up big time near the end. Go fishing and catch a sperm.....whale!

Chantelise is a very simplistic action-RPG with PS1-era graphics and bare-bones gameplay. So why am I recommending it?

Well, beyond the charming art style for the characters and the low price of the game, there's something endearing to me about a game that knows its limitations and doesn't try to overstep them. Unfold an engrossing story across many chapters that is cute, amusing, and at times even upsetting. There are lots of thematic similarities to Recettear, and fans of that game will find a lot to enjoy here.

The English localization by Carpe Fulgur is very well done and translates the original Japanese game faithfully and naturally, and the game runs fine even on the most pathetic hardware available today. Gamepad and mouse/keyboard are both acceptable, although I'd actually recommend skipping the gamepad for this game as it makes no use of analog input (it plays great on an SNES pad, for example.)

The only warnings I'd give about this game are the grueling difficulty at first (don't give up!), the somewhat grindy nature of the progression, and the relatively short length. It's a good bit of fun for the duration, though, and makes a nice "I don't feel like playing anything else right now" game. Has a good bit of replay value too!

This game has been a lot of fun for me and I hope to see more like it someday. Other than some pathing issues with the terrain it played nicely and had a fun feel.

There's a good chance you bought this game along with Recettear, which means you should keep this unistalled forever and just go play that instead. This is an atrocious RPG with wonky controls and limited, tedious combat.

The character you control moves like she is on ice, the rest of the controls feel clunky. Audio is forgetful at best. The game is cute and is semi-pretty, but that is about all I can say that is positive.

Also being able to knock enemies through invisible walls, ON A FLAT FIELD, and then you not being able to get to them is incredibly sloppy. If you do not want the character going past a point put an actual wall, or if you must put an invisible one make sure the enemies can't pass through it freely.

Very hard, to the point where it ruins it. Repetative and boring. Maybe it's just me.

It's a rough game, and the camera/lock-on controls make it harder, which just makes it frustrating. Like throw-your-controller frustrating. You'll accumulate money over failures to buy some stuff that can carry you, as well as be able to rush through zones you have cleared previously, so there is a way out even if you are having difficulty. I, however, do not appreciate having to rely on deaths I feel should have been avoidable if not for the weird camera/lock-on controls.

Heyyo,

A decent indie JRPG. 3D world with 2D character sprites. The storyline's decent and the combat is ok... but I dunno... I never could really get into it since there's better action-RPG games out there. I'll still give it a recommendation since others might enjoy it more than me who are more into JRPG's of this style, but be warned, it's not a very captivating game for everyone.
